My Girlfriend is an Alien S1 Recap

The first season revolved around the destined intergalactic romance of the human President of a company with an alien who arrives on the Earth from a highly evolved planet named Cape Town. Fang Leng suffers from a strange disease called ‘rainy weather heterosexual amnesia’ because of which he loses his memories associated with every woman he lately comes in contact with every time it rains. On one such night, while he was driving his car, Fang Leng encounters a fatal accident. If it was not for an alien appearing out of nowhere to save the dying man with her superpowers, Fang Leng wouldn’t have survived. Unfortunately, she loses her annunciator in the process, the sole device that could have helped her to send a signal to her home planet and take her back there.

Despite the hopelessness, she decides to find the man whom she had saved on a rainy night, doubting if he had her annunciator with him. Well, she is still an alien with or without the device. So it won’t be an entirely bad idea to spend some time on the Earth, with all the extraordinary superpowers that he has. She ends up being a part-time worker at the restaurant of Sister Chai who names her Chai Xiaoqi to avoid any trouble. On one hand, while she befriends the cheerful and notorious Fang Lie, she keeps crossing paths with the cold and overbearing Fang Leng and unknowingly starts forming a connection with him. She tries to stay close to him in order to get back her annunciator before she actually falls for him. Everything was going in the most perfect way before a cloudburst occurs, taking away all the memories that Fang Leng shared with Chai Xiaoqi.

Despite having no recollection of the past, Fang Leng doesn’t seem to let Xiaoqi off his mind. Although Fang Leng couldn’t manage to remember the old times, he falls in love with the girl once again, still unknown to the fact that she is an alien. However, a new problem awaits them as she realises that her days on the Earth are numbered and if she doesn’t manage to return to her planet, she would die on Earth. In order to not hurt him while she leaves, she erases all of her memories with him although Fang Leng is adamant about trying to recover from his disease. Xiaoqi even gives up on her device after realising that it lies inside Fang Leng’s heart and trying to recover it will only end his life.

As she is determined to get away from his sight forever, Fang Leng tricks her into extracting the truth about her identity. It turns out that this time the rain did not take away his memories, but brings back all of his lost memories over the years. Fang Leng gets into surgery to take the device out and manages to survive with the help of Xiaoqi’s tortoise secretary, Xiao Bu. The last few episodes remained pretty emotional as Fang Leng unwillingly sends Xiaoqi back to her planet in order to save her life, without having any hope of her return. The show makers had almost tricked the viewers into having a sad ending until Xiaoqi returns after two years to reunite with the love of her life.
