Ming Huang eventually leaves the show “Awkward” after being sent to a private school by her parents.
In the MTV series “Awkward,” Ming Huang, portrayed by Jessica Lu, is a recurring character who is one of Jenna Hamilton’s best friends. Throughout the series, Ming provides comic relief and support to Jenna, often dealing with her own set of high school challenges, including navigating the complexities of her relationship with Fred Wu and dealing with the Asian Mafia, a humorous subplot involving the social dynamics of the Asian students at their school.
Ming’s storyline takes a significant turn when her parents discover her relationship with Fred Wu and become concerned about her being influenced by American teenage culture. They decide to send her to a private school, which is why she disappears from the show. This happens off-screen, and her departure is mentioned by the other characters. Ming’s exit from the series occurs in the third season, and she does not return in subsequent seasons, leaving her storyline somewhat unresolved for the viewers who had grown to enjoy her character.
