Jiu Xiang Lai Zhe Ni,
Ming Zhong Zhu Ding Wo Ai Ni.

Both of these are very popular drama series, because of their "cinderella" element.

In both shows:
- The female character is especially kind/strong
- The female character is from a lower class
- Female meets rich man
- Rich man dislikes the female lead at first, but soon fall for their cuteness/kindness/ etc.

AND IN BOTH OF THESE SHOW, there is this particular element which I really dislike.

Both of the male leads had their own long-term girlfriend, who they actually loved very much. However, their girlfriends are both career minded, thus they feel sort of neglected.

Then they meet the new girl (female leads) and fall in love with them.

It's so saddening!
Like they were actually much in love with their actual girlfriends until these girls came along! Most people would feel happy for the female leads but I feel sad for the actual girlfriends :( If these female leads didn't enter the men's lives, the actual girlfriend would not be pushed out of the picture already.

Scriptwriters should really take out all these actual girlfriends from the story and not make me feel that the female lead became a unvoluntary 3rd party!
