Fall in Love with Me Episode 11 Previews


So SETTV just posted some alternate previews for episode 11 that are a little different than the one aired at the end of episode 10. My awesome friend helped translate them for me (and of course for you). I also made the linguistic discovery this week that "xiao" is used for something small, young, or cute. So the whole "Xiao Lu" thing really does mean "little deer". I knew they were having fun with playing with that name, but I didn't realize how literally. So he's basically saying "this is the cute, adorable side of Lu Tian Xing", which makes Butler Fu's comment about them being both sides of Lu Tian Xing even stronger from a linguistic point of view. And I also checked about Taozi. Adding the -zi to her family name shows familial and intimate acquaintance. "Xiao" is more neutral. Please excuse my nerdy linguistics info here ^^

Here is the first 16 sec preview where it looks like Taozi has discovered that Xiao Lu is Lu Tian Xing. She looks a little like a deer in the headlights (if you'll excuse the pun).



Leo: Lu Tian Xing, why are you disguising yourself with a false identity to approach Taozi?
Lu Tian Xing: Tao Le Si! I still giving you all my heart, no matter who I am! (sort of the sense, I'm loving you with all of my heart)


And here's the longer one that has parts that are the same, and a few added ones too.



Leo: Lu Tian Xing, why are you disguising yourself with a false identity to approach Taozi?
Lance: As your brother, I will get you the things that you like.
Leo: If Taozi finds out that Xiao Lu and Lu Tian Xing are the same guy, how sad she will be.


If I've missed anything, let me know. While I'm not super stoked about how Taozi finds out about Lu Tian Xing and Xiao Lu being one and the same (I am guessing Huan Huan sends her the video), I am glad that she's going to know. It's about time! I am also glad that we can get it all out in the open so they can figure things out. Of course, once she finds out about the connection between her brother's death and Lu Tian Xing...there are also going to be lots of tears. I hope that she can lose that dazed look and give Lu Tian Xing a chance. It really does beg the question of why she's willing to give Xiao Lu a chance, even though he left her once, but Lu Tian Xing seems to be a whole other story. And I'm glad that Leo's confronting him about it all. Oh boy oh boy are we in for a nice angsty episode!


And I know that I've been posting a lot about Fall in Love with Me, but I also have a review post for A Witch's Romance that I'm working on. And if you haven't already, like our Facebook page, you should. I posted this little gem from Aaron on there the other day in fact. That should help tide us over until episode 11. Or you can always go and check out my "Aaron Yan Addiction Post" too ;).

"Hey! Smile for yourselves! Life's too short to be sad!"

  1. AHHH! I am super excited that Taozi finally finds out. Wish it was a little differently. And I am hoping that Leo will understand what Lu Tian Xing was not planning on causing her harm and that he only wants the best for Taozi but not the best at expressing it. And I am a little apprehensive of what Lance is planning on doing since apparently he is done with just watching and is ready for action. Overall I am really excited for this angsty episode. Ahh why it is not Sunday already????

  2. I use google translate but it is not pretty!! ;) Im banking that altho there's a few eps of angst to come she will fall for the SexyAdGuy side of LTX. She was distraught without XL .. once she gets over the shock (and yes the humiliation) then wont she still be in love with him/LTX. They ARE one and the same ... daft girl!! ;)

  3. Let's hope so! I am relying heavily on my Mandarin speaking friends to help me translate. I think you might be right (at least I hope so) that she will fall for his sexy Lu Tian Xing side. And yeah, Google translate is not pretty.

  6. I have a penchant for 'nerdy linguistics' too. I know about the 'Xiao' bit, having watched Mandarin dramas for a while, and got the significance of Xiao Lu's name. (Always wondered why no one in OZ made the connection, what with XL and LTX being a dead ringer for each other... but hey, we shall suspend all disbelief as far as this drama is concerned. And I have happily done that).


    Also I am ecstatic that TZ finally finds out as this will move the story along to where we want them to go (hopefully). It's unfortunate that she had to find out that way, but since it seemed like LTX was willing to just replace himself with XL and make LTX disappear, there was no other way for her to find out. Unless she was the one listening in on the conversation between Leo and LTX, and not Huan Huan of course. There is also a new preview out posted by Nikus in Soompi. Would really appreciate anyone translating that! Thanks!!

  7. Haha, I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves linguistics here ^^ Yeah, I really am not sure why the OZ folk aren't more suspicious.


    I am really glad that Taozi is going to find out before Lu Tian Xing makes himself obsolete. *sigh* silly man! I just checked the Soompi thread, and it's been translated. ^^ http://forums.soompi.com/discussion/2022540/current-taiwanese-drama-2014-fall-in-love-with-me-%E6%84%9B%E4%B8%8A%E5%85%A9%E5%80%8B%E6%88%91/p24

  8. Thank you for the heads up. Hahaha... she's never going to be able to take the bracelet off because she returned it's key (the pendant) to LTX. It's ironic, and a clever little twist all by itself. I love it. So in other words, he still holds the key to her 'freedom'? Or whatever you want to call it, for her to free herself from that bracelet. :)

  9. Ooh. Where did you find that info? Is that in the new preview that got posted? I should check that out. I do like that twist...I really hope she wises up though and realized how lovely Lu Tian Xing is. I mean, he's so much more interesting than Xiao Lu.

  10. Right?! Yes to everything you said! And then we have to wait for it to be subbed! Eek! The suspense is killing me! Also, I really wish I spoke Mandarin so I could read all the news articles about it!
