Normally I don’t watch Taiwanese dramas, but Drunken To Love You and Who’s the One (Taiwanese title is “My Perfect Man”) are great exceptions. Episode 12 of Who’s the One had a few cute scenes with Ruo Wei & Tie Nan. Ahh! Finally, we have some more romance developments leading toward Ruo Wei & Tie Nan getting together.
Not gonna recap the full episode; I just wanna share a few cute moments. 😀
Ruo Wei finally gets promoted at work, but she doesn’t seem to be very happy about it, because she’s got some love problems. She goes out for karaoke and drinking to celebrate, and gets drunk. Tie Nan happens to be at the karaoke place, and follows her around as she drunkenly walks around. This scene was so cute!!!!! Then she calls him on his cellphone, and she orders him to bring her some food. She gets up and is about to fall…when TIE NAN RUSHES OVER TO CATCH HER. She looks at him in disbelief and thinks she must be REALLY drunk, because Tie Nan actually came to save her. AHHH.
This is just too cute. They are meant to be together.
Tie Nan and Ruo Wei are reunited, as Tie Nan cooks her breakfast and offers to take her out to celebrate her birthday. D’awww. The two of them look so much happier together!!!
And last but not least, let’s point out another important part of the episode: Melvin is officially an insensitive jerk, primarily toward Karen.
Karen gives him a report that she worked all night on. He tells her that she gets 100 points as his assistant, but 0 points as a woman. OH NO HE DIDN’T. Melvin says that to him, there are two types of women: the professional ones who he respects for their careers, and the ones he wants to take care of. He says that women shouldn’t be workaholics. Um.
Thank goodness Karen is his assistant, because she’s rational and keeps his illogical, flighty ways in check. She points out (and rightly so) that Ruo Wei just so happens to be a workaholic too, and that Ruo Wei has a great career. Melvin: “Oh, she’s just working too hard. I want to protect her!”
Seriously, Melvin has got it all. wrong. Ruo Wei is a strong, independent, AND successful career woman. She doesn’t need Melvin butting in to make her career a success. Sure, he’s just trying to help her, but as Ruo Wei tells him in this episode, she feels like he’s belittling her capabilities. Ruo Wei is perfectly capable of climbing up the ranks in her job WITHOUT Melvin’s help.
Karen just tries to give Melvin her honest input on his decisions. But Melvin DOESN’T LISTEN to her because he thinks he’s the only right one around. Which makes me wonder how he became CEO if he doesn’t listen to people’s opinions, let alone his right-hand-woman’s opinion.
I like how my views on Qian Qian/Karen & Melvin have changed since the beginning of the drama. We’re seeing more and more that Melvin is not the perfect man we once thought he was. Even though he ‘looked’ and seemed perfect, in fact…he’s far from it. And now I realize that part of the message could be that Tie Nan was perfect in the beginning, even before his surgery.
As for Qian Qian/Karen, I used to dislike her because she treated Tie Nan so harshly. Now I commend her for being so successful in her career, AND for standing up to Melvin. Melvin is SCARY.
