Looks like a rather magical double date is coming up in Miss Rose. I hope this happens in episode 10 because I want to see it NOW. The foursome of Cheng Kuan and Si Yi plus Sheng Jun and Xiao Ke headed out to Ping Xi in the outskirts of Taipei to release Sky Lanterns, which are ancient lanterns originally invented to pass code during wartime, but has now taken on a rather romantic connotation with the lanterns being lit and released as a way to pray for good luck in all sorts of endeavors. The wish is written on the lantern itself which are made of paper and then released into the sky along with a prayer and a blessing. The cast of MR filmed this scene and actually got to release their own lanterns with real life requests for good fortune. Roy Qiu asked to win a Formula 1 race, Tia Li wants to be popular all over Asia, and Megan Lai prayed for good health to everyone around her. Roy was especially excited since this was the first time he’s ever done this, whether in real life or for filming purposes, and from his wish its clear that he’s really just a big kid still. For the lantern that was released for the drama, you can see that the wish written on the side reads “We will all be very happy.” Awwww, such a sweet sentiment.
