“Oh right, Chen Xin Yi’s husband’s stepbrother’s wife just gave birth to a healthy baby! By the way, Baby Ji the dog is pregnant again!”
Unfortunately, yesterday’s good news is today’s bad news. The dreadful reminder that everybody else is/can be pregnant, except for her is like a slap in the face that sends every pore of Chen Xin Yi’s body ache in pain of envy. Even Ji Cun Xi’s condolences and a lover’s kiss can’t quiet down the rippling yarning of being pregnant with her own child.
Whatever the misfortune, time keeps spinning, and life, keeps moving. So does Xin Yi. She goes to work in an art gallery and surprisingly meets her ex-co-worker Mary. Mary is pregnant. Once the two women make up for past misunderstandings, the conversation naturally falls on the pregnancy. Xin Yi gently strokes Mary’s protruding belly, then sadly touches her own flat belly. She sighs.

Wiping away the tears, Chen Xin Yi lingers a little longer outside the restaurant and touches the reservation sign with the tip of her fingers. The names looked so nice and perfect together, side by side. She lets herself indulge in the absolute harmony for a moment and walks inside to face Cun Xi with an effortful smile.
Cun Xi stands up to welcome her arrival. He hurries over and pulls out the chair across from him for Xin Yi. With the same nervousness, he sits back down in his own chair and waves for the waitress to come over. The waitress brings over a covered plate and lays it on the table. She lifts the lid up, revealing a pink, delicate case. Xin Yi only forces another sad smile at the sight of the wishing box. So many memories.

It’s almost been half a year since Fated to Love You first broadcast. Here are the last previews and BTS. We’ve came a Long way.
Episode 24 is the ultimate happily-ever-after, because Xin Yi’s infertility is, after all, just a big fat mistake. Xin Yi does baby shopping with her husband for her two sisters, not knowing she’ll be pregnant as well. In the process of which, Xin Yi becomes acquainted with Shan Bao Mei, thus relaying the drama watching hype from Fated to Love You to Invincible Shan Bao Mei.
It’s a pleasant day outside, warm without being searing; cool without being chilly. Nonetheless, the day left a nervous sweat on Ji Cun Xi as he wakes up from a nightmare filled with scenes of Chen Xin Yi leaving him. He looks down, Xin Yi sleeping quietly by the bedside. His brow relaxed in relief. Wait a minute, he can see! And that means… without the moral obligation of taking care of this blind man, Chen Xin Yi can go.
When Ji Cun Xi plans to be honest with his love interest for the first time in his life, Dylan’s phone call bursts the timid bubble of truth that’s slowing surfacing. Cun Xi falls back into the swamp of falsehood and plays long with the idea of being blind for the sake of keeping Xin Yi by his side.

What? The Preview for the 23rd episode is already out?! Yup it’s out.
SETTV has decided to move the drama to an earlier time slot due to scheduling conflicts with the broadcasting of Olympics. The drama is finalized to be 24 episodes long (well, 23 plus the finale). The finale will be airing two weeks from now, proceeding the premiere of Invincible Shao Bao Mei.
another preview: mystery solved: Xin Yi is no longer fertile. Ji Cun Xi obviously goes through some mental adjustments to reach the conclusion of divorcing Xin Yi. (Hold on to the curses that’s flying out of your mouth and read on.) So Xin Yi gets all dolled up to sign the papers. Why all the formality? Because subconsciously, she knows Ji Cun Xi is going to lure her to the church in the same chicken costume she wore in episode 8 and marry her on the spot. (Is there a reason she’s wearing black while Cun Xi is wearing white? Oh wait, this is Taiwanese drama we’re talking about. Forget about the symbolism.)
In case you’re anticipating episode 23 to the point that you’re tossing and turning in bed, going through the possible endings in your mind, here’s another preview, or two to sustain your eagerness for now. Alright some BTS as well.
PS: there’ll be a final bed scene.
And near in this sense means there are still two three more episodes after this one.
Xin Yi is having severe emotional problems that’s making her esophagus malfunction, the only cure is Ji Cun Xi’s phone call. The problem is, when Cun Xi dropped his phone in front of the patisserie, he also dropped the fastest way to make Xin Yi better. No matter, he’ll just have to take the longer route.

Horny little Ji Cun Xi gets to keep Xin Yi by his side pretending to be blind. Only the plan didn’t hold up too long. In any case, Xin Yi has decided to remarry Cun Xi, regardless. Except, mischief is on its way to have a little “fun”. (Meaning, the road to holy matrimony is a lot bumpier than signing a few papers and attending a wedding.)
Are we done with the twists and turns yet? Cos I’m getting a little dizzy.
preview 1 || preview 2 || preview 3 It comes down to the question of: to conceive? Or not.
