After a long busy week, settling in with my comfort drama of Miss Rose is like kicking off my pumps and snuggling into bed. MR is reliable and always satisfying, which does mean Im starting to take it for granted. Now that Cheng Kuan and Si Yi finally break through the barrier of Vivian and her domineering father, does this mean the drama will be chock full of OTP happy times for the rest of its run? I doubt it, and not because I think MR is going to manufacture angst. I really worry that Vivian has some really potent plan in place to win Cheng Kuan back, and that Yi Chun isnt about to walk away from Si Yi even if he will respect her current choise and merely remain on the side lines waiting for his chance. I love how this drama has all the parents chiming in their opinions and their hopes, but in the end the younger generation has been allowed to make their own decisions. If Si Yi told her parents she didnt like Cheng Kuan and wanted to get back together with Yi Chun, everyone would be unhappy but they would respect her wishes. Im also happy that Cheng Kuans mom has the same mentality and was pleased that she backed up Cheng Kuan in front of President Jiang.
I dont fault the President for exerting so much pressure on Cheng Kuan, because in his mind he helped raise this young man, who is not only an irreplaceable asset for him but also the guy his daughter appears to love. He has no choice but to keep doing everything in his power to keep Cheng Kuan. The drama is obviously just giving us a taste of happiness by sending Cheng Kuan and Si Yi on their motorcycle countryside date, because when they return to Guang Qiang there will be landmines aplenty and still many more unresolved issues to tackle. Cheng Kuan still needs to get rid of the GM and Manager Kang, Ting Ai appears even more devious and cunning than I gave her credit for, and Vivian will try to play the considerate former girlfriend in hopes of getting Cheng Kuan to change his mind. I worry the drama will separate the OTP for whatever reason only to let them reunite again towards the end, and I really dont want to waste my time seeing that. Im not going to jump that far ahead at this time, but I do need Si Yi to regain some of her pep and energy in this drama because shes starting to lull me to sleep in some of her scenes.
