Instead of exposing her, Qin Shen helped her to keep a secret but used it as a pawn to boss Yuan Qian around once in a while. She is constantly caught in some trouble due to Ling Wei’s friend sabotage and her pure bluntness. Almost every time, Qin Shen will help her to cover up and he starts to develop positive feelings towards her after knowing Yuan Qian better.

Profession crisis

Due to the low intake, the university decide to close down the sculptor major and the current first year students will switch to learn design instead of art. Majority of the class is made up of students that was ‘forced’ into the class from other majors, but getting to know sculpting and start to love it. The entire class tries to brainstorm ways to increase the attractiveness of their major and promote it to the high schools in the city.


Will Yuan Qian successfully switch major? Will it be the end for the sculpting art major?
