Man, being totally caught up on Drama Go Go Go totally sucks sucks sucks (btw, this triplicate thingie is addicting and I can’t stop doing it anytime I write about DGGG so my apologies to grammar sticklers out there). I finished this past weekend’s episodes 7-8 and my mood was stuck somewhere between anxious and satisfied. The pace of the drama continues to knock my socks off with that perfect blend of breezy and earnest, which leaves me desperately wanting more. At this point the OTP have gotten together and how it happened was wonderfully heartfelt and I found myself cheering out loud for the leads to experience both romance and professional success. I had no doubt Eason wouldn’t be written off the show, though the inside riffs on making him comatose, bringing him back for a last hurrah, then killing him off only to have him resurrect in a miracle had me ROFL.
What’s making me so anxious is the understanding that Eason and Ming Ming are going to face many obstacles that comes with him becoming a big star and her being this mousy scriptwriter. I’m also looking forward to the bromance between Eason and Shao Tian, though part of me wished that Shao Tian would actually admit that he likes Ming Ming and throw his hat into the ring. This little brother protectiveness he’s got going does hit all my happy spots. During the drama filming Ruby Lin and Jiro Wang did a photo shoot together that should have alterted me to their impending fantastic chemistry. Sadly I was still totally meh on Ruby back then so now I’m coming around to appreciating it at last. While Jiro is, looks, and acts younger than Ruby in the drama, what makes their relationship work is how emotionally candid and brave they are with each other. This is one gloriously unexpected home run pairing.
