You Are My Glory Episode 21 Recap Highlights:
- Peipei (Qiao Jing Jing’s friend from high school) shows up to hang out with Qiao Jing Jing
- A highschool reunion takes place at a karaoke and Yu Tu shows up late
- Reminiscing about the past and a sweet kiss to reconcile
Some sweetness is coming up! Without further adieu, let’s jump right into it! You are my glory episode 21!
At a nearby cozy cafe, Peipei comments that the former top high school student is still so handsome. And questions Qiao Jing Jing about the driver license.
Why was it sitting in her car?
Peipei lowers her voice and wonders if they did “something” in the car?
Qiao Jing Jing bluntly shuts that thought down. They didn’t do anything.
But Peipei is still not convinced.
As she narrates how Qiao Jing Jing was on television with Yu Tu and met up together again because of the mobile game.
But Peipei wants ALL the juicy details.
OMG I couldn’t help laugh out loud here, Peipei is such a cute friend!
So Qiao Jing Jing explains how she wasn’t good at Honor of Kings so they met up in person. And Yu Tu offered to teach her about the game.
Peipei’s thoughts fast forwards and she wonders out loud if Qiao Jing Jing and Yu Tu are already dating now. Then complains that if they were dating, why wasn’t she notified!?
THAT’s what she’s curious about? XD
And of course, Qiao Jing Jing clarifies immediately. If she was dating Yu Tu, she wouldn’t be free right now to chat with her in this cafe.
Implying that she would pick her “boyfriend” over “friends.”
Peipei comments that’s true.
Qiao Jing Jing then changes the topic. Asking Peipei when she started playing Honor of Kings. And it’s all because of her.
So if Qiao Jing Jing has some free time, she should carry her in the game.
Qiao Jing Jing agrees while Peipei agrees to let her off this time. All aware that this was to avoid being interrogated even further about her relationship with Yu Tu.
But Peipei leaves one lasting comment. It’s so great that she could get in touch with Yu Tu again.
As if it was fate.
Meanwhile, at Yu Tu’s family gathering, Yu Tu passes over some hot water to his aunt and mother. While his mother secretly asks for help to get Yu Tu to meet another girl.
So the aunt suggests that Yu Tu look at some of this girl’s photos. And see if he wants to meet this girl.
But Yu Tu shuts her down. Saying that he’s not interested and doesn’t want to waste the girl’s time.
Then excuses himself.
While his mother shrugs, she believes Yu Tu is hopeless.
Yu Tu heads into his own room, then looks at his cell phone. There aren’t any new messages.
Back at the cafe, Qiao Jing Jing looks at her phone and there’s a lot of messages sent by Yu Tu.
But she hasn’t responded. Peipei notices while looking up from her game and wonders if she can have a look.
Because she never would have thought that the top student from their high school days (who’s a great catch) would be treated so coldly.
Peipei wonders if Qiao Jing Jing still likes him.
And advises that if she still does, she shouldn’t give him the cold shoulder.
When Qiao Jing Jing retorts that she isn’t, Peipei isn’t convinced.
Letting the matter drop for now, Peipei asks for a favor.
She wants to experience what it’s like to play as a high level player. And wants to borrow Qiao Jing Jing’s account for a moment.
Initially, Qiao Jing Jing refuses but Peipei puts on her pout and puppy-eyes.
So Qiao Jing Jing relents.
And Peipei eagerly accepts.
Two Penta kills
She glances over Qiao Jing Jing’s account and praises her skill.
Even commenting that she got two penta kills. But that baffles Qiao Jing Jing. Because she didn’t do it.
Taking her cell phone back, Qiao Jing Jing takes a look and wonders how that is possible.
It’s likely Yu Tu’s doing.
Because there was a moment when she left her cell phone to him.
Qiao Jing Jing remembers that it was her birthday present wish.
To get a penta kill. And Yu Tu granted it to her.
So what does this mean?
Qiao Jing Jing asks her friend what could this mean?
If someone says goodbye but secretly gifts you a present. Peipei believes that that person may have their own reasons for doing so.
Peipei feels like Qiao Jing Jing’s mood just went downhill and wonders what’s wrong. Qiao Jing Jing admits that she’s feeling sad now.
Then asks if their high school students are having a reunion.
High school reunion
Yu Tu also gets an invitation but initially refuses. Then changes his mind when he hears that Qiao Jing Jing is going.
He rushes out the door with a brief goodbye to his mother.
So his mother believes he’s meeting up with a beautiful girl that’s just stringing him along.
LOL, Qiao Jing Jing is NOT going to be happy to hear that Yu Tu is indirectly painting a bad impression of her on his mother
The reunion is at a local karaoke bar with private rooms.
And Qiao Jing Jing is the guest everyone is excited to see. Because she’s famous!
Meanwhile, Yu Tu is running late due to car traffic.
The organizer of the reunion wonders if there’s some people missing. And it’s pointed out that Xia Qing and Yu Tu are not here.
The two smartest students in the group. Xia Qing has a family gathering while others wonder about Yu Tu’s excuse. Since Qiao Jing Jing and Yu Tu are good friends, shouldn’t he come as well?
But Peipei doesn’t want all the focus to be on Yu Tu and Qiao Jing Jing’s relationship. And neither does Qiao Jing Jing.
So she proposes to sing a song for everyone.
It’s the same one as the ending song for each episode!
Meanwhile, Yu Tu is STILL stuck in traffic and makes up his mind.
He gets out of the taxi cab and runs for it.
LOVE how Yu Tu is taking the initiative here to not miss his chance
When Qiao Jing Jing is almost done singing, Yu Tu shows up and watches her finish the song.
Everyone comments that Yu Tu is late and needs to be punished with a drink.
Shall “we” go?
But Yu Tu isn’t really here to make small talk and catch up with his school mates. He sees that Qiao Jing Jing is chatting with the girls off to the side.
And he decides to head over to that side.
Qiao Jing Jing looks up and all the girls’ attention is on Yu Tu.
But Yu Tu is only focused on Qiao Jing Jing.
Off to the side, Peipei is trying NOT to be a third wheel.
Yu Tu kneels in front of Qiao Jing Jing and asks if she’s here because of him. In a gentle voice.
Gahhhh so embarrassing!!! I’m getting second hand embarrassment here!
Qiao Jing Jing can’t help but look away. Then replies in cute voice. She’s forgives him.
And Yu Tu probably feels a burst of happiness. As he smiles.
All the girls nearby smirk. They know something is up between them.
Yu Tu thanks Qiao Jing Jing and wonders if she wants to leave.
Qiao Jing Jing stutters a bit and wonders if Yu Tu wants to sit for awhile. But instead of answering, he gets up and kisses her.
When the guys on the other side tried to interrupt this moment, all the girls were like “SHUSH!” Don’t interrupt this romantic moment
After kissing her, Yu Tu tells Qiao Jing Jing that they are leaving.
He grabs her hand while Peipei hands over Qiao Jing Jing’s purse back to her from the side.
The two head out the door.
Meanwhile, all the girls are in shock. And Peipei is just furiously nodding her head.
I guess she shipped them from the very beginning?
Has she agreed?
The two head out to the side of the building. Where the fire escape stairway is to catch up. Although Qiao Jing Jing has not explicitly agreed to date Yu Tu, she has not refused either.
Compared to last time.
But he still owes her answers to her questions. And Yu Tu agrees to continue answering them.
They get interrupted again by some random strangers so Yu Tu decides to take her somewhere else.
Their old high school.
The two reminisce about the days from high school and roam around. While Yu Tu shows Qiao Jing Jing how much he remembers.
And how much he cares.
Because if he could change the past, he would. So he wouldn’t make those mistakes. And gotten together with her sooner.
The end up in front of their old homeroom and share a passionate kiss.
Oh wow! You are my glory episode 21 did NOT disappoint! I was screaming like a fangirl when Yu Tu took the initiative to kiss Qiao Jing Jing!
I’m expecting more sweet moments to come!
And Peipei, man she’s the most awesome best friend! Taking care of the aftermath by passing out red envelopes and assisting Qiao Jing Jing with her stuff before she takes off with Yu Tu!
You need a friend just like her.
And of course, love the moment how the girls silenced the guys immediately when they tried to interrupt the precious moment between Yu Tu and Qiao Jing Jing.
Anyways, this recap for episode 21 was LONG overdue and I would hope to finish these recaps soon!
