The Red Thread

So, according to a Chinese Legend Yue Lao 月老 is in charged of pulling the red thread for destined lovers together. Once the two people is connected by the red thread, it means that they are destined lovers. 

Shu Yu said to be the successor but she felt bad as she cannot see the red thread and all she have done is based on statistics and cooperation with her friend, Mi Mi, and her brother.

Someone played a prank and Shu Yu accidentally knocked her head and woke up realizing she can see the invisible red thread between people. At first she thought she was hallucinating, but…

Capture
In Episode 5. The invisible red thread between Herman (Shu Yu’s boyfriend) and Kate.

Excited to see what will happen when Shu Yu confirmed her ability to see the red thread and how she will developed relationship with Kent and her pink pig (Ding Yi).
