Date, date, date! I love how Miss Rose continues to take the most squeeworthy City Hall OTP elements and spinning their own twist on it. Those who have seen CH know that two scenes in MR episode 3 were quite iconic comedic CH scenes. The first was the scene where Cheng Kuan voluntarily pretends to be Si Yi’s boyfriend in front of her odious date was a riff on CH where Mi Rae ropes Jo Gook in to play her boyfriend in front of her odious ex-boyfriend and he goes along with it. Then the scene where Cheng Kuan dips Si Yi down and acts like he’s going to kiss her is straight out of CH. But unlike in CH where there was no resulting kiss, I love how MR allows Si Yi to turn the pretense into reality, despite how cringeworthy the kiss was.
So the upcoming stills from MR showing the OTP on a business trip and visiting an aquarium totally brings to mind how Gookie took Mi Rae on their camping trip ostensibly to discuss serious matters but we all know he just wanted to spend time with her. When I see them together, I just know that there are subtle hints and hormones flying around left and right. The fun part is how it’s both obvious yet both pretend otherwise, though other people like Sheng Jun and Si Yi’s friends and family can see through this sure to be pointless attempt to dance around the mutual attraction. The shit will hit the fan once the bitch Vivian clues into Si Yi’s existence and realizes something is up. I sure hope some subbing group starts to sub MR soon, because this drama looks to be the cake, whip cream, and cherry-on-top.
