Dating In the Kitchen Episode 6 Recap Highlights:
- Li Man comes to Lu Jin and tells him to get back to work.
- We learn about Lu Jin’s ex girlfriend.
- Lu Jin tells Gu Sheng Nan that her debt has been paid.
Uncle meets Lu Jin
Gao Quan An teases Gu Sheng Nan about all of Lu Jin’s stuff around her apartment. Gu Sheng Nan gets pretty fired up over it.
Lu Jin enters the apartment building with the soy sauce that Gu Sheng Nan needed. Seeing him enter this time is a great contrast to the first time he entered and fell in a box of cabbages.
Lu Jin smoothly enters the building, avoiding obstacles and greeting the neighbors. He seems quite at home.
With both Gao Quan An and Lu Jin sitting at the dinner table, the atmosphere seems cold.
Gu Sheng Nan runs in the room and asks uncle to watch the stove. She needs to use the bathroom.
Gao Quan An gloats that Gu Sheng Nan relies on him more than Lu Jin.
A minute later the water boy comes to the door. He is delivering about a 4 gallon container of water. This puts Gao Quan An in a fluster because he doesn’t know where the card for the waterboy is.
Lu Jin knows where the water card is. Lu Jin settles things with the water boy and puts the water on the counter. He directs Gao Quan An to take care of the jug, which Gao Quan An can hardly lift.
After dinner, Gao Quan An ends up leaving the apartment quite irritated with how Lu Jin and Gu Sheng Nan dote on each other.
He talks with Xu Zhaodi on the phone hoping to be consoled. Xu Zhaodi has no sympathy for him.
Back in the apartment Lu Jin is asleep on the couch. Gu Sheng Nan kneels down next to Lu Jin and leans over him to try to take a selfie with him.
When Lu Jin stirs, he knocks into Gu Sheng Nan. Gu Sheng Nan loses her balance and her head falls into his.
They end up lip to lip.
Lu Jin pops up off the couch and Gu Sheng Nan sits on the floor with her back to him.
Lu Jin politely takes his leave. But they both agree they will see each other tomorrow.
Gu Sheng Nan is smiling.
With Lu Jin home and Gu Sheng Nan comfy at her house, a montage of Lu Jin and Gu Sheng Nan begins to play. They are both thinking about the kiss and other touching moments they have had together.
The show segways into a new day. Meng Xin Jie guides Li Man into Lu Jin’s hotel suite.
It’s a surprise visit and Meng Xin Jie tries to hide or excuse a few strange souvenirs Lu Jin has kept around. Namely, the spoon Lu Jin picked up at Yard Fry Diner and Gu Sheng Nan’s resume.
Though Li Man seems curious about Lu Jin’s new spoon collection, the items don’t seem to phase her.
Meng Sin Xi takes his leave. Li Man sits on the couch looking at a pair of bracelets thinking about a memory of her and Lu Jin.
In the memory she is with Lu Jin dealing with a critical situation at work. Then Lu Jin’s past girlfriend barges into the office.
She is jealous of all the time Lu Jin spends with Li Man, his secretary.
Lu Jin explains to his girlfriend that he has a critical situation at work.
But Lu Jin’s girlfriend demands Lu Jin choose between her and Li Man.
Then Lu Jin says, “I can always get another girlfriend, but Li Man, my work partner, is irreplaceable.”
After the memory is over, we see the bracelets Li Man is holding. They both have a charm on them with the initial L.
Li Man wonders if Lu Jin will make the same decision again this time: work over love.
Welcome back to reality
Lu Jin returns to his hotel suite with a whole bunch of hulu candy. He is in a relaxed mood talking on the phone to someone.
He sees Li Man and slides back into his business man personality.
Li Man asks Lu Jin why he hasn’t been answering her calls or replying to her texts.
Li Man reminds Lu Jin of his responsibility to the company and that he needs to go back to Switzerland. He doesn’t belong in Suhai.
She tells Lu Jin that she has arranged an interview for a hotel manager. They will fly to the interview together the next day.
Lu Jin goes to pick up the hulu candy but stops. Something heavy is weighing on his heart. The conversation with Li Man ends.
Shortly after, Gu Sheng Nan sends Lu Jin a voice message about dinner. Lu Jin seems torn. He responds that he will take her to dinner tonight.
Gu Sheng Nan is through the moon that he is taking her on a date.
As an audience member, my heart is aching right now.
First and Last date
Lu Jin and Gu Sheng Nan are at a fancy restaurant. Gu Sheng Nan is chipper and positive.
She made sugared walnuts for Lu Jin.
Lu Jin tries to drop hints about why they are eating there. Gu Sheng Nan doesn’t pick up on anything being wrong and continues chatting away happily.
But then Lu Jin gets direct.
He tells her he will no longer go to her house for dinner. That the arrangement of her paying him back with dinners was a joke. He says he is sorry he made the agreement.
Lu Jin tells Gu Sheng Nan that he has work and will be leaving. He comes across as indifferent.
Gu Sheng Nan is no longer happy. Her eyes are brimming with tears.
She starts to cry and complains about the price of their meal.
Lu Jin says, “The value of a product, isn’t its original value sometimes.”
Gu Sheng Nan says, “I get it. My cooking is cheap.” Lu Jin tells her that is not what he meant, but she leaves the restaurant.
Gu Sheng Nan tries to get over Lu Jin
The next scene shows the stair lights flickering at Gu Sheng Nan’s apartment. She is still in the cute outfit she wore to the restaurant. She is using her door to crack walnuts.
When Gu Sheng Nan’s neightbor asks what she is doing, she starts to cry loudly.
The next day Gu Sheng Nan goes to the market. The ladies selling shellfish gossip about Gu Sheng Nan’s haggling behaviors.
The shopkeeper explains that when Gu Sheng Nan is in a bad mood she will argue with the shopkeepers until she can get the price she wants.
Gu Sheng Nan approaches the stall and begins to haggle just like the shopkeeper predicted.
The ladies selling both agree that Gu Sheng Nan’s bad mood must mean she has broken up with someone.
At home Gu Sheng Nan tries to convince herself that she didn’t fall for Lu jin. She packs up all of his stuff and throws it away.
The episode ends with her laying on the couch completely bothered.
