Drama Go Go Go: Eps 16-19
Drama Go Go Go is still inching along, slowly but surely. I’m mainly frustrated with the current love square situation because I feel like everyone is just going around and around in circles and never really progressing any further from where they began. BUT I’m very excited for Hu Bing’s character YUN KAI!
Ming Ming continues to be all wishy washy, trying to talk herself into the whole ‘I like Eason but I’m not gonna be with him’ thing. I just really want to tell her to step it up and appreciate what she has. In one scene, Pei Ni tells Ming Ming flat out that she’s envious of her relationship with Eason. DARN RIGHT, MING MING!!!!!! STOP MOPING AND CLAIM EASON BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE STEALS HIM!!! For example, there’s this one scene when Ming Ming sees Pei Ni kiss Eason. Then Ming Ming goes away all sad and thinks to herself about how just earlier she was so happy being with Eason, but then the thing with Pei Ni ruined her happiness in an instant. I’m all……what do you expect Ming Ming!?!?!? Does she really think no one else is gonna claim Eason when she starts pushing him away from her?
Anyways, bless Eason’s heart. I don’t think Ming Ming & Eason are ready for marriage…and their getting married at this point in Eason’s life would be rather unrealistic. But Eason’s proposal proves that he is seriously thinking about Ming Ming, and I believe he would choose her over his career. I guess Eason’s main flaw is that he is too idealistic and he needs to figure out how to balance his personal life with his work.
I am sorta over Pei Ni now. I thought she was awesome because of her girl power but now she’s being too pushy. I guess I can’t blame her too much though (yet) because she is still trying to hold onto the hope that she can make Eason like her eventually, and it’s hard for her to let go of her feelings so quickly.
“Even if it’s just reliance, it’s alright. As long as Jie understands my heart, it’s ok.”
As for Shao Tian, I think his character is just better off as some comic relief. He can really lighten up a scene but he can also frustrate me A LOT. I think his feelings for Ming Ming are understandable if you consider them as a kid’s crush. O_O I don’t think it’s that unusual for a younger guy to secretly crush on an older more mature woman, if she is sort of his ‘idol’. In this case, I feel like Shao Tian is just crushing on Ming Ming because she’s like his idol, or he is just mistaking his brotherly duties for romantic love. Either way, I know he’s not right for Ming Ming because he doesn’t understand the consequences of his feelings. It’s great that he expresses his love for her without holding back, but he is also hurting Ming Ming in the process. I did feel pretty bad for him when his mom flipped out at him just because he likes Ming Ming though.
So, why am I still watching DGGG even after all of my complaints? Well…..similar to what a fellow blogger, misscupcakees over at A FairyTale World, said…I think neither Eason nor Shao Tian are right for Ming Ming. O_______O I know that Ming Ming will end up with Eason in the end (because they are the main OTP) but I just feel like he is not fully suitable for her. Eason still has a ton of growing up to do, and even if Ming Ming gets together with Eason there is no guarantee that she can have his full undivided attention consistently. Having a relationship with a celebrity will require great sacrifice, especially on Ming Ming’s part. And not to point out the age difference issue but…age actually does matter to a certain extent.
I think that during this time of uncertainty, Ming Ming just needs a reliable and stable man. So what is my answer?!?!?! YUN KAI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’M SORRY EASON & SHAO TIAN!!!!! *JUMPS SHIP* After seeing…literally like 3 scenes with Yun Kai I have been fully converted into a YUN KAI FAN! So far he and Ming Ming are just acquaintances but I’m looking forward to seeing their future scenes together. He’s stable, mature, and both kind and straight forward. WIN-WIN SITUATION! Really, if I were Ming Ming I would choose him. Sure she could take the risk with Eason, but sometimes a woman just wants stability in her life….and Yun Kai is a good option! *wink wink*
Oh, and lastly I just want to say that Henry (Eason’s friend in H.E.) is adorable. It is so cute that he is trying to become more accomplished in his work so that he can confess to Pei Ni.
Yun Kai’s entrance is really late but I’m willing to accept his character to break up the mediocrity. I guess he is sort of a “wild card” character that can save us from this never-ending love square. Probably at this point, Ming Ming and Eason really just need to take a break from each other. Ming Ming needs to mend some friendships and find more fulfillment in her work. She needs to gain confidence on her own without Eason. Also I think Eason needs to experience what his new life will be like as a full-fledged star, and whether he can truly commit to Ming Ming despite his work.
