[Recap] 凉生,我们可不可以不忧伤 All out of Love: Ep 1-10

I started watching this last night on youtube (raw only) and I can already tell that my heart is going to break multiple times. There are 60 episodes so lets get through with this!

Ep 1-10:
We begin with Jiang Sheng’s wedding with Cheng Tianyou (CTY) and Liang Sheng voices his opposition to their matrimony. Thus, he takes her hand and drags her away from the altar while everyone watches.

Immediately, we are transported to when they were children and we can see how Jiang Sheng has been living in the countryside. Her father was an important reporter who rarely comes home and she is only looked after by her mother. One day, a huge accident takes place, taking many of the villagers’ lives. Her father and his “mistress” were blamed for this accident. Jiang Sheng’s mother soon brings home Liang Sheng (the son of the mistress) and their brother-sister relationship starts to blossom.

Over the years, we see how Jiang Sheng is neglected by her biological father who always pays attention to the son instead. In the end, Jiang Sheng doesn’t even try to win her father’s affection and pays more attention to her mother by helping her with house chores and ensuring that her mother does not work too hard. Then, both Jiang Sheng and Liang Sheng receive their acceptance letters to enter university. With this opportunity to improve their lives, both siblings finally agree to go and study with the support of their parents.

At university, Jiang Sheng quickly becomes friends with Jin Ling as they’re dorm-mates. Their childhood friend, Bei Xiaowu, also gets to the same university with them and soon becomes fast friend with Xiao Jiu. Xiao Jiu is soon introduced to the siblings and they all become close friends. Liang Sheng becomes popular with many love struck girls wanting to go out with him but he clearly just wants to focus on his studies and not worry about love yet. However, one girl, Ning Weiyang, does not give up and strives to get close to him even by pretending to be close to his sister, Jiang Sheng.

We then get introduced to Cheng Tianyou who meets Jiang Sheng by fate. Through their encounters, they realise that they do have a common friend – Cheng Tianyou’s grandma. Jiang Sheng actually visits his grandma often for volunteer work and soon they both become close together. Cheng Tianyou is also secretly investigating more about his aunt’s death and finds out that she may have had a son which is his cousin.

But then, while Cheng Tianyou is slowly developing romantic feelings for Jiang Sheng, who in turns becomes a bit interested in him. However, his young brother, Cheng Tianen tries to mess up their relationship. I don’t like this brother as he always tries to act pitiful in front of Tianyou but behind his back, he plots to take everything away from his elder brother.

Tianen first messes up Jiang Sheng’s relationship with Xiao Jiu who tried to frame Jiang Sheng with drug possession at a party. This resulted in a broken friendship between the girls as Xiao Jiu was willing to do what Tianen want just for money.

Later, the siblings receive heartbreaking news that their father passed away and that their mother is bedridden. They quickly travel back to their home. The mother tries to secretly tell Liang Sheng about his true birth parents but before she could tell him about his biological father, Jiang Sheng comes in – halting the conversation to a stall. The mother soon passes away. Meanwhile, Tianyou gets closer to finding out the truth about his aunt and her son (which we know is Liang Sheng).

  1. Thanks for this!! I love Sun Yi but was hesitant to start this but watched ep 1 and am now up to ep 17. I admit I FF some of XiaoJiu and Bei Shau Wu parts with her estranged mom because they had no bearing to the story but aside from that’s i watched everything!!

    First off, I can now see why Wallace Chung is popular. I saw him in General and I where I thought he overacted and was not a fan. Here he is just perfect ! I love his interactions with Jiang Sheng and I thought it was lovely that it shows that Jiang sheng is not disinterested in him (I didn’t read the book and I don’t see any romantic relationship between Jiang Sheng and Liang Sheng at all – she doesn’t like Wei Young because he is her closest kin and it’s natural to resent another female in her brother’s life but that’s it!

    2. Totally on the Liang Sheng and Tian You ship. If he is not the end game, would stop watching ! Romantic urges are different from familial love bonded by mutual reliance and kinship.

Subtle yet clear in his demeanor that he is interested but not pushy in his pursuit. I still don’t know where he thought of bringing her when his car broke down and he got annoyed! Still like a boss but also a big child! 😂

Even when Liang Sheng was annoyed with her for staying out the whole night with Tian You, she didn’t stop seeing him (considering how important her brother’s opinion is to her)

    3. Those 2 sisters really need to learn when to let go and know When He Is Not That Interested In You.

    4. I am still afraid of the angst and upcoming melo – 70 episodes!!! I like Ma Tian Yu but he better not start confessing his love to her once he realizes they are not blood related. With or without that, it’s still weird since she has always treated him as family!!!

    5. Love Sun Yi’s outfits (as an adult) and her make up.

    1. I’m glad there’s another fan!!!!! I admit I’ve been quite lazy with the recaps as I’m already up to the latest ep – I find it tedious to recap modern dramas for some reason.

      But yes! Xiao Jiu’s mother’s situation is a bit out of the blue but whatever. Tian You is my bias right now and he is such an amazing bf to Jiang Sheng. Wallace’s role in General and I is satisfactory when compared to this drama. He does well in modern dramas. Can’t wait to see how this drama unfolds 🙂
