I think there’s about 2 more episodes left that have the gaming portions. And then the show focuses more about the relationship between Yu Tu and Qiao Jing Jing.
But I hope you guys are enjoying the show so far. Let’s discuss what happens in You Are My Glory episode 8!
Who is Teacher Yu
Qiao Jing Jing is surprised that her manager is bringing up the makeup artist and stylist.
But Yu Tu is still here. What does she do?
Rumors will definitely take off if she’s seen with a handsome guy in her own home.
After ending the calling, Yu Tu knows her dilemma and proposes she introduce him as a guy who fixes appliances.
Qiao Jing Jing wonders if he’s too handsome for that.
Yu Tu nods.
Narcissist much? Ahahaha
So he proposes that he stay in this room while she heads out to meet up with her manager and the other folks.
Qiao Jing Jing lets her manager in and the stylist and makeup artist.
The latter two head over to the balcony area to get setup. While Manager Ling huddles closer to Qiao Jing Jing.
Wondering where Teacher Yu is. She’s extremely curious.
Because Xiao Zhu has been complimenting how handsome he is.
Manager Ling wants to secretly greet him but Qiao Jing Jing steers her in another direction. Saying that Teacher Yu is extremely shy.
Moments later, Qiao Jing Jing leaves with her entourage and tells Yu Tu to stay at home while she heads out.
Manager Ling tells Qiao Jing Jing to just act natural because this role is basically in the bag. Since Mr. Li invited her personally for a meeting.
The two head inside and greet Mr. Li.
But he’s not alone. There’s already another actor and his own manager as well.
Qiao Jing Jing greets Mr. Li with a handshake and sees that Mr. Duan is here as well.
Mr. Duan and her met at a previous variety show when Mr. Duan was still new to the industry.
Mr. Li invites everyone to sit down and tells everyone he gathered all of them today because his schedule was packed.
Meanwhile, Yu Tu gets a message from Zhai Liang saying that he’s back. Wondering where Yu Tu is.
Yu Tu tells him that he’s guarding the house.
Zhai Liang doesn’t see him home though and is confused.
While Yu Tu smiles to himself, commenting that “she” trusts him so much. To leave him here.
You know, I could totally see Yu Tu letting Qiao Jing Jing be the hardworking bread winner. While he becomes a stay-at-home husband. That’s the imagery I’m getting here XD
Back at Mr. Li’s meetup, Mr. Duan’s manager keeps fishing for more information about the new movie. Despite Mr. Li’s intentions to keep everything secretive.
Invitation to Dinner
Yu Tu gets a call from Qiao Jing Jing later in the day with good news.
He thinks the good news is that she got the role.
But it’s the fact that Mr. Li thinks she’s too skinny. So she can eat more.
Hahahaha food or the role? What would you think is better news?
Yu Tu awkwardly agrees. Then he gets invited to dinner because it’s Manager Ling’s husband’s birthday.
And they are celebrating with home-cooked food.
He might as well come because Manager Ling has been eager to meet him.
At Manager Ling’s place, Ah Guo tells his wife that he’s eager to eat her food. Because her food is the best.
While Manager Ling wonders if he’s hinting that she’s not home a lot to do housework. But Ah Guo clarifies that it’s not that.
He’s more than happy to take care of home matters. While she’s out working hard.
Role models for the future Qiao Jing Jing and Yu Tu???
Then Qiao Jing Jing knocks on the door.
Ah Guo wonders how she got news that it’s his birthday. Manager Ling also appears and tells Qiao Jing Jing that this was meant to be an intimate dinner.
No room for extra guests to be a third wheel.
But then Qiao Jing Jing shows her some gifts. Manager Ling can’t help but let her in.
Qiao Jing Jing enters first with Xiao Zhu right behind her.
Then it’s Yu Tu next. Manager Ling appraises him closely.
He’s just as handsome as the rumors.
Manager Ling eagerly welcomes Yu Tu in.
Your Face is Your Talent
Everyone gathers on the couches as Ah Guo is a bit nervous to open up the jewelry container Qiao Jing Jing passed over.
Because it’s been a while.
When he opens it, it’s actually a bracelet for women. Ah Guo is confused so Qiao Jing Jing clarifies. It’s his birthday so she decided to help him save money by buying jewelry for his wife.
Isn’t she generous?
If he doesn’t like it, he can exchange it and buy something for himself. But Ah Guo refuses to do so. Commenting that if he were to exchange it, he would buy something even more expensive.
Wow, such a doting hubby. Manager Ling is blessed.
He then puts the jewelry box down to grab Huihui, their daughter.
And Manager Ling takes this opportunity to ask Yu Tu if he has ANY interest in joining the entertainment industry.
Because he has such a handsome face.
Yu Tu tries to reject the offer but Manager Ling definitely believes he has potential. She starts going into agent selling mode.
Qiao Jing Jing is just shaking her head behind Manager Ling.
Minutes later, Huihui shows up and greets Qiao Jing Jing.
Because there’s not enough food, they will order hotpot and invite everyone else from the office.
Girls from the office giggle to themselves as they notice how they have a handsome guest. And Qiao Jing Jing says that Yu Tu has encountered this situation since junior high.
So he’s used to it.
A Little Spar
But Yu Tu didn’t notice that he and Qiao Jing Jing went to the same junior high. Qiao Jing Jing clarifies. He was in class 1 and she was in class 9.
As her school and his merged.
But the class number didn’t demonstrate her actual study skills because she was actually pretty good. It’s just that with the emergence of study geniuses like Yu Tu that bumped her down.
Everyone laughs while Qiao Jing Jing helps herself to some delicious beef to dip into the hotpot.
She can eat as much as she want because she’s too skinny for her upcoming role.
And speaking of the role, Mr. Duan’s manager tried to give Qiao Jing Jing a hard time today.
Because it turns out that she’s getting replaced. So she decided to take it out on Mr. Duan AND Qiao Jing Jing.
What a shallow manager, tsk tsk
Anyways, thanks to Teacher Yu, Qiao Jing Jing showed off her skills in Honor of Kings. Ah Guo complains that he was the one who originally started coaching her so he should have some merit too.
Then he peers over at Yu Tu with a slight smile. And asks for a little spar.
Just a little. Qiao Jing Jing is excited to see the two play against each other in a solo match.
Yu Tu accepts and it’s ON.
They are Friends Now
Yu Tu: Baili Shouyue (Sharpshooter hero) vs Ah Guo: Diao Chan (Enchantress hero)
Yu Tu kills Ah Guo’s character 3 times in a row.
Ah Guo feels like the hero he chose wasn’t a good match up. He wants a rematch.
Yu Tu: Swordsman hero vs Ah Guo: Martial arts hero
Yu Tu wins again.
Then Ah Guo proposes they use the EXACT same character.
Both of them use the same hero and Yu Tu still wins. So Ah Guo says that he didn’t eat lunch today which hindered his performance.
Everyone oohs and ahs with nods of understanding and passes him some meat.
After everyone finishes eating and is just hanging out for games and fun, Qiao Jing Jing chats with Yu Tu for a bit.
She tells him that she’s always admired him.
Because he was getting perfect scores in maths and physics so she knew he was going to be a scientist. Yu Tu comments that he may let her down.
But she doesn’t believe so. Investment banking isn’t bad either.
Qiao Jing Jing believes that no matter what he does, he’ll be incredible.
After a bit of jjoking around afterwards, Qiao Jing Jing wonders if they are now friends. Yu Tu replies with “of course”.
Getting the Ace Rank
Qiao Jing Jing prepares to get the ace ranking. But she’s also worried about her recent weight gain lately. She plans on eating a nice meal tonight but she might gain additional weight.
So she compromises.
If she can get ace rank before 5:30pm (about 1.5 hours away), she will eat dinner tonight.
Qiao Jing Jing briefly prays to the gaming gods to let her ranking matches go smoothly so she can eat.
Her first match, the opponent is afk.
Next few matches her opponent have internal conflicts.
Moments later, she wins the stars needed to get her ace rank.
Yu Tu is surprised it went so smoothly.
The gaming gods wanted her to eat.
Xiao Zhu already made reservations at a very popular restaurant. Qiao Jing Jing enters first before Yu Tu.
But when Yu Tu enters afterwards, he asks for a favor.
Gently calling out to her using her name.
Ohohoho, there were a few cute moments in You Are My Glory episode 8! I enjoyed seeing Yu Tu comfortable guarding Qiao Jing Jing’s home.
A nice comparison against how he felt when he was in his own home. How cute! Then when Qiao Jing Jing shared how she helped Mr. Duan’s manager rank in Honor of Kings, Yu Tu looked so proud.
And when the two chatted in the balcony of Manager Ling’s home, the atmosphere was nice. Even though the two were got reacquainted not too long ago, I feel like they are best friends now.
Qiao Jing Jing has heard Yu Tu’s troubles and offered advice and comfort. When he needed it.
There’s been a lot of focus on Yu Tu’s side, will they show him backing Qiao Jing Jing when she faces her own issues in the entertainment world?
I hope so. Otherwise it will seem unbalanced. Anyways, what do you think Yu Tu’s favor is?
