Ya Men: "You don't even have the courage to admit that you like him."

Ya Men forces Shan Cai to face her feelings

Episode 16 (第16集), also titled "Chapter Sixteen" (Chapter 拾陸), is the sixteenth episode of the drama, Meteor Garden. The episode aired on July 26, 2001 in Taiwan. It was followed by episode seventeen on August 2. Blue Lan guest stars in the episode as Ya Men.

Dong Shan Cai meets "Qing Yong," while on a group date with He Yuan Zi. His mannerisms reminds her of Dao Ming Si, whom he claims is his cousin. Si and the others start investigating and soon learn that he is not who says he is.


The night before leaving for Japan, Hua Ze Lei talks with Xi Men and Mei Zuo about his successful plan for Dao Ming Si to acknowledge his feelings for Dong Shan Cai. He leaves a letter for Shan Cai, revealing that he is going to help his father's company. Shan Cai cries a bit while reading the letter, in which he also encourages her to find her happiness with Si. At the airport, Xi Men and Mei Zuo say goodbye to Lei. Si arrives just in time to promise Lei that he will take care of Shan Cai. That night, He Yuan Zi comes to visit Shan Cai. She asks Shan Cai to take a photo with her to commemorate their start as "independent modern women." Meanwhile, someone emails Dao Ming Feng about the current situation.

Xiao Zi later drags Shan Cai to a café after using their photo to advertise for a group date. She arranges for several guys to meet them, but ends up dismissing all of the guys. They are about to give up when a guy, calling himself "Qing Yong," and his friend arrive. Qing Yong reminds the girls of Si, catching Shan Cai off guard in particular. When he starts smoking, Shan Cai snatches the cigarette out of his mouth. Qing Yong retaliates by pouring a drink on her. Xiao Zi quickly grabs Shan Cai and they leave. However, once outside, they lose track of each other. Shan Cai walks around in a daze until Qing Yong pulls her into an alley. He reveals that he is Si's cousin, before frightening Shan Cai by pretending to strangle her.

After running away from Qing Yong, Shan Cai bumps into Si who invites her to go and talk. Qing Yong walks by and waves at Shan Cai. She begins to ramble about her encounter with him. Si, who has no knowledge about having a cousin, thinks Shan Cai is making up an "excuse" to avoid talking with him. That night, Mei Zuo comes to visit Si to ask about his talk with Shan Cai. Si mentions his so-called "cousin," which leads the guys to talk to Ms. Yu. She confirms his cousin's existence. That night, Qing Yong follows Shan Cai home. She grudgingly lets him in when she accidentally hurts his hand. He reveals his hatred for Si and discourages her from pursuing Si. She indignantly replies "Have you said enough?"

Mei Zuo and Si meet with Xiao Zi to ask about the blind date. Afterwards, they head to Shan Cai's home. Qing Yong exits through her window, before she opens the door to let Si and Mei Zuo in. Si apologizes for snapping at her before. Meanwhile, Qing Yong calls someone to ask for more time. In the morning, Qing Yong returns for his shoes and gives Shan Cai a flower resembling a lantern since she had said "[her] future is in darkness." Shan Cai is touched by the gesture and gives him a gift in return. Meanwhile, Xiao Zi is investigating Qing Yong when she runs into Chen Qing He. She then spots the guy from the group date, who informs her that he had actually met Qing Yong the day of the date.

Si and Mei Zuo convince Ms. Yu to take them to meet his cousin. They arrive at his apartment to find his cousin, Qing Yong, is not the person Shan Cai has been meeting. Meanwhile, Qing Yong reveals to Shan Cai that he is not Si's cousins and asks her to "be with [him]." She does not believe him until Si affirms the truth the next day. Qing Yong arrives at that moment and reveals that Si's mother hired him to seduce Shan Cai. As the F3 and Qing Yong continuing talking, Shan Cai becomes increasingly frustrated. She interrupts to tell Qing Yong to take her to Si's mother. He brings her to an airport since Feng is in New York. Shan Cai, having now calmed down, asks him his real name, to which he answers Ya Men.
