First of all, he embodies the inner fangirl of us all. Because honestly, how many of us wouldn't say we had a terminal disease if it meant a día with Kim Hyun-joong? I can't bring myself to blame him for having a crush, be it liking o like-liking. Although I think we all know which one it is.
Secondly, he's actually an important character, because he serves as a personified kick-in-the-butt for Ji-hoo. Like, "Seriously dude we all know tu like her stop playing dumb, mkay." Without him, he may have condemned himself to being friend-zoned forever, and WHOOSH, there goes 75% of our important necessary dramatic conflict down the virtual toilet. Well, maybe not, but it would've taken a good bit longer, and Ji-hoo's not a hasty person even with encouragement.
Also, he's a terrific break-up for the heavy atmosphere in that part of the drama. The Goo Jun-pyo situation is emotional, and while we all like being crossed in amor every once in a while, we do need something to lighten up our angst-fest. Hence Ming. I think I laughed más during his scenes than anything else in the whole time Jan Di was in Macau.
Have I mentioned his band yet? Haiming (his full name) was a part of the K-Pop group AST'1, (being the only Chinese member) which wasn't amazing, but had a few songs that made it to my playlist, like Dynamite and Yearning corazón (also part of the BoF soundtrack). Sadly for me, they broke up a while back, but they will always be in my heart. *cue the cheesy song from Tarzan* Another más sobering fact: Seong In-gyu passed away due to thymus cancer about a año ago, leaving a permanent hole in the band. The rest of the AST'1 fans and I will forever mourn for him. Side note: I thought I was an intense fan, but I didn't even know that the name of the fandom was Eunice until I looked it up... xD
Lastly, Ming is fabulous. And adorable. Can I make that one word? Like fabulorable? Yes. Ahem. Furthermore, I'm acutely sensitive to fashion, and his style appeals to me. His scarf collection, in and out of the show, is on my parte superior, arriba ten lista of things I need to have to complete my life.
All of that being said, I come to my conclusion. Ming deserves más attention. Seriously. As much as I amor the rest of the cast with all of my heart, I need to tell the world one important thing: Ming is my spirit animal. Also, if I ever get a chinchilla, it will be named after him. Enough said.
