Summer of Bubbles (Summer’s Desire/ Show Princess) 泡沫之夏 by Ming Xiao Xi (OE)


Xia Mo and Luo Xi are orphans, both having met each other at their adoptive parents’ home. Because of the shadows remaining from their childhood, they are both shrouded in the midst of wariness. However, when Xia Mo and her brother meet an embarrassing situation during a singing competition, Luo Xi helps them out, and the iciness that separates both of them gradually melts. Seeing what has happened, as well as in an attempt to break both of them up, Ou Chen, who deeply loves Xia Mo and is the heir to the company that founded their school, sends Luo Xi to England to study…

Five years later, Luo Xi has become a superstar, with countless number of fans to his name. Xia Mo having become an orphan once again as her adoptive parents died the year Luo Xi left, is a new artiste of a records company, and meets Luo Xi. Ou Chen on the other hand, having lost his memory of Xia Mo five years ago due to a car accident, also sees Xia Mo once again as well. With all three main characters back on the scene and their disputes of love and hate, what will happen between them then? Who will Xia Mo pick in the end?

    Ohhh…..I remember watching bits and parts of this drama last year. Didn’t finished it becoz I’m not a fan of Barbie Hsu. I thought they spoilt the drama casting Barbie in it. Peter Ho as usual, was his charming self. And please slap me silly becoz I only knew who Huang Xiao Ming was two months ago!!!!

    I watched the drama too but stopped because the male leads and female lead doesn’t act really well 🙁 Ming xiao xi sounds familiar!

    Peanuts: Her organ related plot, liver here and heart in another book is too dramatic for my taste.


    What do you mean? Do the characters go through multiple organ transplants? That’s so traumatic for what seems like a lighthearted novel…

    Love the drama five years ago, love it still now. My favourite is Ou Chen, the devoted lover with unwavering heart. Sigh….. I didn’t know Peter Ho until watching the drama. Sort of dislike him in the earlier episodes, but halfway through, holy smokes…. His love just melt everything insides me. He and Xia Mo is compatible couple, complement each other. Love the Ost .. Ok.. Gotta stop.

    Where do I buy this comic book and does it come in English. I have been searching for the rest of the chapters for a couple of years now, but to no use. And I know what happens at the end because of the drama which was uh okay, but I love the pieces of art, it really does impact the reader and the dialogue. Great job author and artisan. But where do I buy this collection? And does it come in English?

    It’s not the liver, but one kidney…and it’s the heroine’s brother who has health problems -none of the main leads contract an illness.

    This book will always have a special place in my heart because of its beautiful prose, distinctive heroine, Xia Mo (absolutely love her practical, levelheaded, and cold/distant personality) and obsessed, devoted hero, Ou Chen. They’re one of my favorite couples of all time!
