Wow, I did not see this coming. Yesterday the cast of Miss Rose posted on weibo that the entire drama has wrapped filming! Yes, wrapped for every single actor, not just the side characters. Megan Lai was the last to finish and she posted a collage of pictures with her co-stars (though Roy Qiu isn’t seen in any) and expressed her sadness at the ending of her time together with the cast and crew. The drama has been live filming for months now, though not nearly as tight to the wire as K-dramas which live film but need to produce two episodes a week instead of one. With the wrap of the filming, I can’t imagine there are that many episodes left unless the production managed to catch a tailwind in the last few weeks and produced a lot of footage than I assumed. I wonder if SETTV will be airing specials if MR ends before Replacement Princess is ready to premiere? I’m sad that the drama filming ended on such a quiet note, which reflects the fact that the drama got decent ratings in Taiwan but was never quite the runaway hit its predecessor Office Girls was. Nevertheless, I’m happy that Roy can move on to his movie and dramas in China (he posted a picture on weibo today wishing Tang Tang a happy birthday so I think their break up rumors are clearly not true) and am content knowing the drama isn’t trying to drag things out for the sake of filling airtime. If you can see the picture above posted by Megan this week, it’s clear she’s wearing a wedding dress (and looking so gorgeous my eyes hurt). I’m so ready for a wedding between Si Yi and Cheng Kuan its not even funny, if only to get Vivian out of the picture for good. Honestly, her character was such a cipher – I never understood why she treated Cheng Kuan badly in the first place only to turn around and refuse to let him go because she liked him too much. New fan pics also show Megan filming with Chao Chun Ya at Song Shan Airport, which means poor Yi Chun is on his way back to the US. Sigh, what can I say, I hope his story teaches everyone not to make stupid decisions because there are no do-overs. I’m now back to looking forward to MR again because the end is in sight. Woo hoo! I hope the final episodes are super cute.
