A very Merry Christmas to everyone and good tidings leading into the new year! I’m happy to send 2013 off even if there are currently two dramas that own my heart. Both dramas could start 2014 off with a bang or end up my first disappointment of the year but at least it’s making me exceeding happy right now. In a one-two punch of happiness and anguish, the leads of the SETTV Friday drama In A Good Way posted an adorable couple’s Christmas card for the fans of the drama. Lego Lee (Lee Guo Yi) and Kirsten Jen (Ren Rong Xuan) hammed it up as usual in their own fresh and fun way and definitely brought extra Christmas cheer to me. A few hours after this picture was posted, the biggest tabloid publication in Taiwan’s Next Magazine (壹週刊) splashed cold water on all the RongYi shippers the world over by publishing an article claiming that Lego is already a taken man! The article claims that Lego has been in a long time relationship for the past eight years with a girl who recently debuted as an idol singer in the group Momo Danz (魔電女孩). Her stage name is Orange (real name Gan Yuan Lin 甘煖琳) and she’s three years older than Lego.
I honestly have no clue what C-list idol group Momo Danz is much less a member of said group but I’m sure this is the most publicity Orange has gotten in her just started idol career. Next Magazine’s gossip usually has a kernel of truth (if not all true) despite how random or far-fetched some of the incidents are, and this one isn’t even all that weird considering it’s just about how two entertainers have been dating. Lego’s manager said in response to this article “As far as I know Lego doesn’t have a girlfriend right now. He broke up with that girl a long time ago! But normally I don’t pay attention to this kind of stuff and I don’t prohibit any entertainers from dating.” This article is of course upsetting for RongYi fans though I’m chill since who knows what will happen down the road. I am upset that Next Magazine is painting Kirsten as a Xiao San (interloper) which is totally not warranted considering if Lego was currently in a relationship and the entire cast knew about it I doubt we’d get so much casual flirting all around where even their colleagues play along. Take this news with a grain of salt either way and just be happy we have Liu Chuan and Jia En to make us happy once a week.
Is it just me or does Orange look like Jung Eun Ji? I love Eun Ji so its no diss and honestly I don’t care who Lego dates/dated/is dating as long as I get more IAGW cuteness both onscreen and offscreen.
