Ugly Duckling Perfect Match Episode 4

Why is it that I still can’t hate Ning? Despite everything she puts Seua through.

Ning keeps acting shady with Seua, being all jealous of girls calling his phone when she is the one two-timing. The nerve of this girl. Seua always try to diffuse the tension by being easy going but Ning isn’t letting it go.

Bee seems to be standing up more for Seua, throwing implicit remarks to Ning: Oh, I can’t stand women who two time! Who does that?! So shameless. Gosh, I love Bee so much. Readers must be tired of me saying this. Please don’t hate me and keep reading.

Seua quickly discovers the truth when grabbing noodles with Bee and Joo. Tot, Ning’s Boyfriend 2, shows up and sits with them. He stirs a conversation with Bee and Joo, which at first is completely harmless. The stress almost makes Bee choke on his noodles. Poor Bee and Joo; they weren’t ready for this. Then Tot starts asking about Ning. Is Ning in her room? He didn’t call before coming. Anyhow he’s going to buy sweets and it would be nice of Joo and Bee to deliver them to Ning.

Bee's heart nearly stopped

Bee’s heart nearly stopped

That’s when Seua – passive until then – asks what’s the relationship between Tot and Ning. Tot, all proud and not knowing what’s coming, boasts his boyfriend-girlfriend status and then refers to Seua as temple boy. Sigh.

Hell breaks loose. Punches are thrown – clearly with Tot receiving most of them. Confrontation with Ning then ensues.

Ning explains that her parents approve of Tot. Ultimately they want her to marry him after graduation. Girl, what about Seua? Selfish much. Ning adds that she likes Tot because he offers her all that Seua can’t. Gifts, dinner outs, money and attention. Seua is hurt. Ning should have fought for their relationship. Why use her parents as an excuse? I know right. Her being with Tot is mostly because she wants it. Seua had promised that he would do everything to have her parents accept him.

Ning is apologetic. Whatever. I think she needs to listen to Apologize by One Republic feat Timbaland… 

The only part that made sense was Ning saying that she was always afraid of putting a burden on Seua. Because of his financial situation, she never clearly expressed what she wanted. Ning explains that wanting this could result in putting Seua in an awkward position.

After the break up, Seua disappears for about a week. Joo tries to contact him in vain. Nui, Tui and Bee notice her concerns and she gets teased of course! Tui tells Joo that Seua will reappear when he is ready. No need to worry too much. Also why is Joo so worried? Is it that she has feelings for Seua? Well, if it’s the case Joo needs to be upfront about it.

When Seua finally reappears, he looks dirty and smelly. Joo urges him to fix his appearance. She is also happy to know that he quickly recovered from the break up with Ning. Honestly, he already saw it coming. There were so many arguments between them. Seua also admits that he hasn’t been the best boyfriend since he didn’t pay attention enough to Ning’s feelings and needs. I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THAT.

Now that Ning is out of the picture, Seua becomes way more flirtatious with Joo. Even inviting Joo to dinner and wondering about her previous relationship. Seua’s behavior makes Joo realize her feelings. She doesn’t admit it but she knows that there is more than a mentor-mentee relationship. The problem is that Seua being nice with everyone makes it hard for Joo to see if he’s treating her differently.

Bee also gets in trouble. It’s time for Joo and Seua to come to the rescue. Bee, who is the student president, designated a girl named Tik as treasurer. Tik was supposed to raise money for jerseys. The problem is that the jerseys are ready but Tik hasn’t paid for them yet.

I wonder how Tik got the $$$ to buy all those nice things? Hum...

I wonder how Tik got the $$$ to buy all those nice things? Hum…

As a matter of fact, Tik disappeared with the 50,000 baht (~ $1,500). Bee has to be responsible for the amount, and he completely and understandably freaks out. Where can he find that money? His parents aren’t well-off. Also why does this happen to him?! Bee almost throws himself from the second storey of a building. Luckily, he only breaks a leg. It could have been so much worst.

Cue to Seua and Bee taking a road trip to Tik’s hometown. Cute moments for our main leads!

Glad that the relationship between Seua and Ning wasn’t dragged by the director. This show is supossed to be 9 episodes so I want more screen time for Seua and Joo :-D. Sorry and bye Ning.

The breakup was clearly a HOT mess. Why have this conversation for everyone to hear and see? Also did Ning seriously think that she could hide this until graduation? Please. I can’t believe this nonsense. When two timing and lying, make sure that both parties never find out. Otherwise your plan is a fail from the get to go.

Ning also explaing that she couldn’t tell Seua what she truly wanted clearly shows that there is a communication problem. Those two sleep in the same room/bed. They are as intimate as can be and she still can’t talk?! Bye, I’m done with you.

What killed me even more is Seua asking for a second chance. Thankfully Ning said no. Sorry Seua; The director of the drama knows what’s best 😈.

Something that jumped to my attention is Seua telling Ning to wait until they graduate. He promised that she won’t be disappointed and he will make her live in comfort for the rest of her life. What’s weird is that Seua didn’t say wait until I find a job. Why graduation?

I have also noticed that Seua is now clearly hitting on Joo. She is the only one that probably doesn’t notice. He clearly wanted to have dinner with her, but of course she had to invite Bee… I love Bee but he was clearly not needed then. Seua also seems happy when he finds out that Joo is single. Yes, she had a boyfriend but NOW she is FREE.

Did anyone notice Seua reading Fifty Shades Darker?!

  1. I really like this show, too bad no one is subbing this. You’d think there’ll be subs because it’s so short (the length surprised me too). Thanks for recapping the series. Ps. Just hope Joo’so parents won’t be against Sea like Ning’s parents.

  2. OMG. since u have seen the end by now I guess I can say it. I never clued in to that after graduation part. for me the part that made me clue into the end was the sweatshirt scene when she wen to pay. I dont even know how I guessed it but I was right

    • This is so timely! I just finished watching it haha. I’m going to post the two last recaps soon. Yes, that shirt part got me feeling some type of way. It was just too shady! I enjoyed this lakorn so much. I haven’t liked the other two Ugly Duckling series so much. I am impatiently waiting for the last show with Sean and Esther. That one HAS to be good!
