The "Tike " relationship on Glee has been the most stable lasting two years. Mike(Harry Shum Jr) and Tina(Jenna Ushkowitz) now have a long distance relationship. Mike is in ballet school in Chicago and Tina is now a senior at McKinley High. When will see Harry Shum Jr back on Glee? Harry answers these questions in the interview.
Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Harry Shum Jr. (Mike Chang) at the FOX TCA All-Star Party, and he didn’t exactly paint the most optimistic vision of Mike and Tina’s (Jenna Ushkowitz) future.
When do you go back to work?
I think I’ll be back a couple of episodes into it, but I’m not in the first couple of them. They need to ease in all the new characters, so I got a little extended vacation! But I’m excited about it.
He has a girlfriend still, right?
He has a girlfriend. So that whole deal is going to play into the storyline, I think, because long distance relationships can go really bad or it can be okay. I’ve never heard of a long distance relationship being very good, like, “Oh, I love being in a long distance relationship,” unless you’re cheating on someone.
But also, Tina can’t move anywhere. So the only one who can leave is you.
Well, let’s put it this way. They’ve been together for two years. She’s maybe the top dog at school. And Mike is with hundreds of girls and maybe three guys in the ballet school. So I don’t know. There’s temptation, like in the real world. There’s always temptation. Hopefully nothing bad will happen, but at the end of the day, for drama’s sake, hopefully something will.
What do you think of this split between Ohio and the rest of the world?
I think it’s interesting. I think it’s natural. It’s good for the fourth season and it’s healthy because people can relate to it. You can’t stay in high school forever. Reality sets in. Some people fail miserably, or some people succeed right away. So I think we’ll see a lot of failures and successes on this next season.
Glee returns Thursday Sept 13th @ 9pm/8C on Fox.
