[Mainland Chinese Drama 2019] Go Go Squid! 亲爱的热爱的

Recommended Posts

@mayra83 She broke up with him because she was embarrassed by her actions with him when she was drunk. She text him that since their relationship is fake anyways, then to break up. He respond if she had thought it through already and said replied Yes. But you can see that the both of them are sad over the break up of their fake relationship. She cries a lot, LOL. And he's constantly distracted.

In terms of TN's clothing... I feel like most Chinese dramas where the female lead is either a high school or university student, they tend to dress her very kiddish. The only drama I've seen that it wasn't like this was Love O2O where Wei Wei was dressed rather decently. But I'm from the US so my style sense is more Western so perhaps in China, the style is different. 

 

One of the biggest complaints from fans of MBFB's book is that Yang Zi doesn't have the body type of TN as described in the book. In the book, Blueberry sends TN a voice message that HSY overhears telling TN to use her assets to attract HSY such as her "long legs", "shapely, voluptuous beauty", and "Loli face and big boobs". I think one of the reasons they put Yang Zi in those oversize shirts is to give viewers a sense that she does have that body type but it's just cover up? Left to the imagination, so to speak.

One of my favorite scenes in the book was when TN was visiting HSY and his grandfather at his house. HSY takes her to his room. He gives her his details and asked if she still wants to break up. She tells him no and he respond with "Then let's not break up." LOL. Right after, he calls into a conference. She decides she won't bother him anymore but before she could leave, he pulls her over and place her on his lap. He pretty much whispered sweet-nothings into her ear forgetting that his mic was on during the conference call. Navi was like, I understand Chinese, control yourself! LOL. Anyways I just saw the preview for Ep 15-16 and a similar scene played out like that except we don't get TN on HSY's lap. :(

No doubt, I love all the lovey dovey stuff between the leads...but I'm rather confused how quickly HSY fell for TN. Like...nothing...at least to me, was significant enough between them for him to already like her a lot. He did a 360 in two episodes or something with his feelings for her. I hope they continue to focus on why she is a genius because I'm not feeling that part of her still...In a span of 40 episodes, they should have gone more into detail with the love development between HSY and TN.

 

honestly, I agree with you. I do love all the stuff that's going on but the rapid transformation of HSY is shocking (although very much welcomed :D ).

 

If I can make a guess, I would say that the reason why he likes her a lot (and so dearly cares for her) now is because he's already felt the sadness of separating with her. in ep 13-14, they separated for around 2 weeks right? So i would guess that in the time the drama didn't show us, both of them (but HSY especially) thought about their "past" relationship & how important the other person was to them (i mean, TN was the only girl who understood him (even though his temper is something), let him do his stuff (aka career), care for his family & friends (e.g. Xiao Ai, grandpa), made him happy/not indifferent, etc.). that's why both of them took the breakup quite badly.

 

But I do agree it's a bit too fast (in the regular world). But I guess we can just assume that it's because he realizes that he's always had a special part in his heart for her (he did treat her differently from the rest of the girls from the start) & doesn't want to lose this second chance. And love is blind anyways right? 

 

Spoiler

Isn't there a second break-up anyways? On Sunday? If I understood the 'heartbreak" and "crying" emojis right..? And there's also the "raining" to "sunshine" emojis on Monday. So.. i guess more development?

 

Nevertheless, I'm still glad that there's all these romance stuff. At least we can see that HSY also likes TN. And it's not just TN now. :)

In the book, HSY got frisky pretty fast lol. I think the drama does a better job of showcasing him falling in love with her. I think @Lululililululu may have mentioned this in the past regarding HSY and the cat he loved when he was in Team Solo. Appledog made a comment that after the cat died, he couldn't love another cat. I feel like his affection for TN is similar to this. She's cute, sweet, follows him around. So when they "broke up," it left him feeling conflicted. We also have to remember that HSY is TN's first love and it's very likely that TN is also HSY's first love too. Due to their age difference, he feels like he shouldn't entertain thoughts of them being together but at the same time, he's already soften towards her.

This was something I thought about too. His character is very passionate about the things he likes. So I can see the similarities between the cat and TN. I guess I'm thinking too realistically when it comes to this show. lol

Yknow, I actually like the outfits in this drama, not just Tong Nian's but also Blueberry and K&K's (even though it's all black lmao) and grandpa's, I didn't like Tong Nian's aunt and cousin's outfit but I think that was intended. 

 

Also Tong Nian doesn't cosplay, she dresses cute, and she has a loli image, but it's not really cosplay. Although I agree she should have worn cuter clothes, as is she's cutesy sporty uni student, but I think on the whole she's fine. She is definitely not my type of protag, and I do wish cdramas would have more variety in protags (it's why I like appledog, she's less stereotypical) but this is how Tong Nian was characterised in the book. At its core, Stewed Squid's plot and characterisation is fairly cliche.

 

With HSY changing pretty fast, he's sort of..go getter, very straightforward. He's been softer around Tong Nian to begin with, not necessarily because it's TN, sometimes because she's a girl, but sometimes he can't help himself. So when he decide "okay maybe I should try this thing", he goes and does it and is very upfront about himself and relationship, which was something I really really appreciated.

I can’t wait for the kissy scenes! Han Shangyan’s character is your typical grump with the soft, squishy heart for Tong Nian. I like the way Li Xian has broken his characters frisky shell a bit, but it feels like it’s taking forever to get to the eye brow arching flirtatious romantic scenes?! I read the novel online in English translated format. Not going to lie, Han Shangyan’s character was more forward.  :D

Agreed, HSY in the novel is more forward but Li Xian's portraying the character is more comedic...it's like all the laughing that i did from this drama is by his funny expressions..loving this show becos of him.

Exactly! Li Xian is very expressive. Its clear who is the breakout star in this show. lol Without Li Xian I don't know if I will watch this. His portrayal is wonderful!

I believe the trait both Han Shang Yun and Tong Nian have is total loyalty. It is also what made Tong Nian even more attractive to Han Shang Yun. She is also the peace-maker between Grandfather Han and Shang Yun.

 

I don't know how that irritable woman thinks that she has a chance with Han Shang Yun. Han Shang Yun treats her like she is a pest and called her a lunatic. Tong Nian has met his family and that is very proper in Asian culture. She is trying to dismissed that it is nothing. I loved the way Tong Nian tried to shoo her like a pesky fly. What more to affirm the relationship when Han Shang Yun declared that Tong Nian is the one for him, right in her shameless face.

 

So funny that Han Shang Yun is afraid of heights. This time it is his turn to hang on Tong Nian for his dear life.

i should read the book....lols the book sound interesting lols

 

It is. I read and wait to see how Li Xian and Yang Zi perform :P

 

that pervertedness aside, I think I agree with the opinions about how quickly it took for Gun to like TN back.

 

It was hard at first to reconcile his thought and action because intentions towards TN were unclear. For me, he was always observing her and then giving warnings or orders, like how he treats the gamers under his care - like a little kid. I think he is ultra aware that he is a good 10 years older and doesn’t know how to handle her affections. He was very businesslike and seemed almost guilty that his potential mate is so young.

 

Until that 2-week breakup.

 

It was obvious he was as distraught as she was. I thought the drama showed that clearly though they could have done the build up to the ‘getting fond of’ better so the ‘missing’ is just that much more powerful. 

 

As bossy as as he was, I thought he gave her a lot of room to make her own decisions and accorded her due respect outside of the need to be her chaperone. I quite like that. There was never subjugation. 

 

The eps forward should detail them fumbling around in their first relationship. Fun days ahead :)

Saw a clip where the irritable woman commented to Han Shang Yun that it must be tiring to be dating someone so young. Loved Han Shang Yun's answer that she must have not been in a relationship for a long time and should give it a try. He even told her that he was sick because Tong Nian was not by his side.

 

What a 180 degree turn for our Boss.

yes he gave her the room...he didnt force her to make the decision he wanted and it is the decision she wanted not him....

 

i like the room he gave her even though he is like those straight forward type that didnt knew how to sweeten the option....the way he went about it is actually very cute in my eyes.

In some ways i'm glad that 'pest' of a girl is messing with him, at least it had him made the bold move to ask TN to come and be with him so he can 'pushstart' with their relationship or else they'll probably still be videochatting :lol:.
