Dr. Love explains her 8 important laws in Murphy's Law of Love
Would you ever wade into the turbulent sea of love without a life jacket? We are at the midpoint of hit romantic comedy drama Murphy's Law of Love, and it's the perfect time to list the 8 laws that Dr. Love has found that could work against you, as a personal survival guide. Let's see if you agree with her.
Murphy's Law is officially defined as "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong." It is meant to describe and explain worst-case scenarios.
Guan Xiao Tong (played by Li Jia Ying,) our resident Dr. Love, is a young psychologist who counsels and helps clients at an online dating site, even though her personal love life is a bust. She defined these "laws of love" through her own experiences in the world of (unsuccessful) dating, and these important laws are meant to help you survive the unexpected surprises and possible failures.
1. If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will hurt the most will mostly happen.
This law is especially heartbreaking when your long-time boyfriend tells you that you're really not a good fit for his future.
2. It never rains when you have an umbrella, but it pours when you don't have one.
You've got it! She doesn't have an umbrella with her. This may not be bad luck after all as she meets Ji Jia Wei (charismatic Danson Tang) right after this scene. So begins this addictive romantic comedy.
3. If there is a correct solution, then it will bring new problems.
I love Dr. Love and her cute co-workers, who keep running into problems that their demanding boss wants them to fix in no time.
4. There is never enough time to do it right the first time, but always enough time to redo it again.
Another mission impossible?
5. The more you don't want to meet someone, the easier you'll meet.
We fangirls wouldn't mind meeting Jia Jia Wei (Danson Tang) unexpectedly!
Let's chant: I don't want to meet Ji Jia Wei... I don't want to meet Ji Jia Wei... I don't want to meet Ji Jia Wei...
6. If all seems well, you have obviously overlooked something.
This happens to me all the time. (Sigh)
7. The thing you need at the most critical moment is not in your hand.
(I like Jia Wei's solution. Take a look in episode 5.)
8. The day you wear high heels, the ground has potholes.
Xiao Tong doesn't like to ask for help, but #8 law happened just as promised. What does Jia Wei do?
Therefore, Dr. Love advises you to remember these important rules and always make a Plan B (backup plan) for possible occurrences of Murphy's Law of Love.
What do you think about Dr. Love's laws of love? Have you had a similar experience? Are you in the habit of making Plan Bs?
