JoAnne: Damn, but he's attractive. He's made for formal wear - so elegant but yet with that cute twinkle.
Eleanor: Yes, to all of the above. Then again, he could wear a potato sack and still be utterly charming and sexy and handsome I'm sure.
Big Bro is no slouch in black tie either. Much Handsome. Very Tasty. So Yes. Wow.
All three of the Ming brothers look AMAZING in tuxes. *sigh*
Does Killer Wang even know that?
I don't know. That's a good question. So much beautiful in that car that it almost hurts.
I'd hate to be this guy. Now he has to find stuff to tell Manchun, but he has to still give Nantian some info or she'll get suspicious. His life sucks.
I think I'd feel more sorry for him if he weren't trying to catch out the Mings.
Wasp is Airplane Wang, right? Also Poison Bee? Viper and Cobra are Ming Lou. Scorpion is Ming Tai. It's hard to keep them straight, and what's more, I am not entirely certain which name goes with which party, except that Scorpion must be KMT because Ming Tai only has one affiliation.
Yes, Airplane Wang = Wasp = Poison Bee. And Ming Lou = Viper = Cobra. And Ming Tai = Scorpion. It's a sub-issue, not different names.
Yup, it's just how the subber chooses to translate the word.
I'm sorry, but did they really have sweat suits in the 30s? Hmmm, it seems that sweat pants, at least, have been around since the 20s.
Sweat suits. I'm just going to look at the pretty. So. Much. Pretty. Kakashi, I bow in gratitude for all the Ming Ah Cheng gifs. ❤❤❤
I begin to find this behavior rather irritating, actually. I think I'm cranky, though. When I watch it, I sometimes cringe in embarrassment for them...but I'm not irritated.
You mean Ming Tai? SUPER annoying and irritating, yes. But we know it's an act. Cause he's 100% different when he's doing spy-stuff.
Ming Tai totally irritates me when he's being bratty, but I did find Ah Cheng handing the coat to Ling Lou hilarious. I do love the dynamic. It's adorable and funny. It also shows us that at home Ah Cheng isn't entirely afraid to give Big Bro a bit of a hard time.
Yeah, he's good at that.
❤❤❤ And he's so charming when he does it.
Do you remember every single textile you see? Could they not have just had each their own? Can only Japanese own that particular pattern? Come on.
Ha! But are you a spy?
Okay, so maybe in RL it might be too much of a coincidence, so we'll just have to suspend our disbelief here for a bit.
Maybe Ming Tai can start to put two and two together. Finally. Or maybe he didn't hear much.
I just think this whole secret spy brothers secret from each other is getting too hard, don't you? For them, I mean.
I want them to tell each other soon. Otherwise someone is going to get hurt really badly.
It's the night of the nights..... and yes, the Communists are of course also doing a mission. On the KMT side, Ming Tai is alone. Guo and Man Li are sitting this one out, but Man Li is thinking (and worrying) about Ming Tai ... oh no, I hope it's not some kind of bad foreboding... Ah, but rich boy Ming Tai is looking in his element! Sipping champagne, sampling the room, smiling at pretty ladies. Checking security.
Looking fine. Pissing me off because he's going to waste it on that irritating lump of boringness.
Just ALL out in the open, like the idiot she is. Not that I care. Let her get caught. Solves our problem.
Wouldn't that be nice?
Time for their usual banter, which I have come to dislike quite a bit. He both hates and loves that her people sent her. They kinda both express an interest to work together, but it seems they both plan to play honey-pots, which HE does not like at all in her case.
Well, she's useless for anything more complicated. Stupid boring lump. Although the dress is nice, tonight.
It's very hard for me to like her. Ming Tai, you can do better.
Miss Momoko is pretty, at least.
Oh Ming Tai, you suave devil, you.
And not stupid, either. Sort of loose, though. You know what? Still a better option than TrainWreck.
Ack! Ming Tai! Good thing he likes a little bit of Russian roulette.
Listen, Ming Tai. You're more important to the cause, so if you guys get caught and she volunteers to distract them so you can get away, say thank you and LEAVE.
Also, she distracts him too much. They shouldn't ever work together again. EVER. Do you hear me show?!
Stop looking so proud of yourself, you boring lump. You being the chosen one is a travesty. The universe will right itself, you watch.
Speaking of the universe, I saw an article that said Hu Ge is dating someone again. In RL.
Oh no... abort! Abort!!! Two guys step out of the office behind them (overtime!) and holler out to them. Ming Tai claims they're friends of Miss Momoko, who is resting in the conference room after having drunk too much. It seems they buy it and Ming Tai and Trainwreck continue, only... "wait a second", the soldier calls out. How come he has never seen them before? He happens to know all of Momoko's friends.
Well, because Ming Tai is a new friend, and TrainWreck is too boring to bring out in public.
Eep! They're totally going to get caught.
Throw her at them and run Ming Tai. Okay, that was a bit mean, I admit.
He orders them over to where he is and says he will check on Momoko-san with them standing right there. *starts biting nails* As soon as the soldier turns his back, Ming Tai starts fumbling for his gun, but then, the guy remembers some basic training, turns around, puts his hand on his own gun and orders Ming Tai to open the door for him. Yeah, shit. Ming Tai opens the door and then calls in "Momoko-san, are you alright?" and when the soldier steps closer, he attacks. Trainwreck takes on the guy in the corridor with her scalpel (this looks lame, it's not well filmed) and Ming Tai fights the other guy ... and loses his watch in the process...
She's so annoying, I fully expected her to disguise her voice and say 'yes, I'm fine' and believe he'd buy it.
Ack! Ack! Ack!
Miss Keiko's opponent is down, but Ming Tai's is one tough MoFo and really good! And then, he spots a gun on the floor and picks it up. SHIT. DON'T KILL HU GE!!!!!
He can't die. He can't die. He can't die. He can't die. Crap! Crap! Crap!
A shot rings! Ming Tai staggers ... everybody downstairs screams, and Nantian starts running. Outside, hundreds of soldiers start blocking off the Embassy. Upstairs, the soldier slowly falls to the side... Miss Keiko behind him shot him and saved Ming Tai's life. His comment: "We can't walk straight out the front door now". YOUDON'TSAY! But he has a Plan B, and that is fleeing over the balcony from the room he "seduced" Miss Momoko in (is she dead, by the way?). Well, dear Ming Tai, bad plan, because the yard below is swarming with soldiers. But then, he has an idea...
Fine, she was useful. (Not sure about Momoko.)
I think Momoko might be dead. Okay, TrainWreck, I will like you a little for saving Ming Tai's life.
When Nantian and her guys get there, they are gone... to the roof. Ming Tai can barely hold Miss Keiko's hand, she is sliding!! Her foot already appears above Nantian's head ... but Ming Tai manages to pull her further up, just in time. She then drops her purse (of course she would) and all seems lost!! But she manages to catch it with her foot. Okay, enough excitement for one night.
Watch me get really irritated in a few minutes.
Too much. It's too much. My heart can't take it.
I liked this scene and she was okay in it. Dammit.
Hu Ge, you are just too adorable. STAHP!!!
All team Man Li feelings aside, and very objectively speaking, casting Wang Le Jun as Hu Ge's love interest is one of the biggest casting errors I've seen in a while. I do not know what this actress is capable of, but I know that these two people simply don't harmonize together. Hu Ge as Ming Tai (which seems quite a bit like the real Hu Ge) is boyish, bubbly, and charming (if he does not have a hissy-fit), but this woman? She seems to suck all the energy out of everything around her. A large part of it may be the role (she was described to us as extremely virtuous), which is so very boring, but I fear it is more than that. All her movements look stiff and ungainly (yes, I know she had broken bones but why did they not employ a different actress?!) and I just don't buy it that she is a spy. Fine, fine, she saved his life, but apart from that, she is useless and extremely annoying.
Yes. What she said.
Yeah. What Kakashi said.
Rant over, sorry.
The good thing is that we don't see her in many episodes.
I fear that will change.
Haha, no overall speaking, to the very end, she is not in that many.
That's good to know.
Rant really over now, sorry!
No, no, rant away!
We don't mind. I've already got my #TeamManLi banner making supplies out ready for us to work on them together.
So, our dear Ming Tai thought that walking out the front door "boldly and openly" is the best idea, haha, that's so him! What a little idiot. I forgive him, though, because he looked so damn good in his suit, even while fighting. Or especially while fighting. He seems happy enough on his rooftop for the time being and I'm not too worried about him for now... even though getting down from there might be a challenge.
I am still on your team, Psycho Kitten! Team PK 4eva!

And because there are so many adorable MVs and BTS, let's add one!
