Miss Rose: episodes 7/8

18 Sep

The past couple episodes have been quite stagnant in terms of any real progress. Considering how much we’ve been enjoying the drama, we confess to being a tad disappointed by the past couple episodes. 

It feels like on one hand a lot has happened but at the same time nothing has changed at all. Cheng Kaun has still done nothing to acknowledge his feelings or taken any real action to win Si Yi’s heart and she has carried on in that same state of limbo where she doesn’t know where she stands. It clear to anyone with eyes and half a brain that he’s madly in love with her but still we’re left with this situation that hasn’t progressed since the start of the drama.

We just want him to grab her and kiss her already! It’s time to make a decision and take some action.

Okay, their hot Tango and the auction bidding war was moving in the right direction but still… we demand more.

Cheng Kaun as usual had some wonderful, thoughtful lines in the drama. We loved the scene where he asked her to run forward and not look back. It was sooooo sweet. In fact, he’s such a sweetheart that we fall more and more in love with his character every week. His actions in the past couple episodes have been quite unique for a standard alpha male. Usually, it’s the love rival’s job to step in and comfort the leading lady and be her emotional support. So it’s a refreshing change to see the leading man step up and take care of his leading lady when she needs it.

The way he looks at her kills us every time – it’s so intense!

A love rival with a real shot- who would have thought it was possible?

The writer has done so well in developing Yi Chun as a character as well as Si Yi and his past relationship. There is so much pain and heartache that it’s understandable that Si Yi has yet to completely recover. Come on, she was prepared to marry him. We adored the scene where Si Yi asked Cheng Kaun if he knew what it felt like to be betrayed by a loved one. It revealed the true extent of her heartbreak and her vulnerability and allowed Cheng Kaun to understand exactly how broken she was.

As much as we want to protect Si Yi like Mamma Luo and beat the shit out of Yi Chun with a broom, we can understand her choice to see him and hear him out. He was once the most important person in her world, it would be completely unrealistic if she could cut off so easily, plus boring for us as viewers. Heheh

We love the fact that Yi Chun has come out fighting. He wants Si Yi back and will stop at nothing to get her. For once it’s nice to see some fight in a love rival. We hate how dramas fail to give any real depth to love rivals. They are either really crazy or sickly sweet/ pathetic. Yi Chun as a character has depth to him. He has a strong romantic history, chemistry with the leading lady and professional credentials on his side. He’s a real contender, plus did you see their back hug? HOT.  

Other thoughts:

Who else was happy that Vivian was absence for the past couple episodes? It’s just such a shame that the annoying brat returns next week. Groan*

We love Si Yi’s parents, they are so sweet! The scene where they phoned her up to see if she was okay while she was at the charity event made us smile because that is exactly what our parent’s would have done, right down to the bickering interruptions from Mamma Luo.

Sadly we guessed correctly about Xiao Ke’s boyfriend. What a pig, we hope he suffers. Muhahah.

Who else thought Si Yi’s make over for the charity event was wasted? The outfit was ill fitted and her hair made her look older than she is.
