This is how you do it, networks everywhere take note. SETTV released the following batch of official stills today for tomorrow’s episode of Miss Rose. I don’t need to describe it, right? Hilariously enough, the news article accompanying the stills revealed that there will be a 7 minute long boating scene coming up. You all know that I’m going to be timing it and if I get even one second less than 7 minutes SETTV will be hearing from me. That’s the price to pay for telling me its going to be long and glorious and then failing to deliver on the promise. During the filming of the upcoming boat scene (if anyone is confused as to where the phrase originated from check my glossary section), Megan Lai revealed that she was trying to prep for it on the bed but was actually very nervous since she’s never filmed a scene like this before. It’s supposedly very steamy, and both her character and Roy Qiu‘s character as soaking wet when they filmed it. In the drama, they go hiking and get wet, leading to them checking into a hotel to dry off. Heh, dry off, yeah right.
Roy revealed that this scene is going to be very emotional and heated and the filming pulled off without a hitch. When he heard that Megan was actually quite nervous, he teased her that he couldn’t tell at all and from her acting he thought she had done this before because she was such a natural. I think there is so much meta to be mined after watching this scene, and if its as good as the preview and stills look, we all need to acknowledge what great actors Megan and Roy are to create this kind of onscreen chemistry when they have ZERO offscreen interaction or chemistry. I’m such a drama push over – as much as MR has annoyed me with its narrative collapse in the last few episodes, the second I see an upcoming steamy make out scene I’m salivating like a puppy begging for a bone. I do have to give the drama credit for writing Gao Cheng Kuan with such consistency, he has never wavered in the face of what he wants, whether his love for Si Yi or his own professional future, and he really is the heart and soul of this drama.
