Perhaps some diced tomatillos, onion and a little cumin.

You might want to add a table spoon of creme fraiche (at the last moment) to contrast the sweetness of the corn and add some fresh parsley.
Anyway eggs corn and cheese, this sounds like an extremly sugary pasta to me. I don't think I would make it.
Eggs and cheese is a very classic pairing ~ carbonara. Though carbonara relies on the fat from bacon / pancetta for a flavor boost.

I would have added a bit of pesto. I use it quite often for a great flavor base and then add whatever veggies I have. Sometimes I'll add meat (italian sausage, salami, prosciutto).

If I didn't have pesto, I would have tried adding some lemon juice. And probably some red pepper flakes. Not tons of either, but enough to perk up all of the other flavors.

I am aware of the real carbonara and how it's made, but when i saw eggs and corn and cheese I thought this is some sort of scrambled egg american dish. (like mac & cheese) And I never seen that

Mayo is good with sweetcorn and eggs. Maybe serve it with some chili mayo?

Two different suggestions. A squeeze of lemon or lime, or maybe a pinch of chili pepper flakes (or powder, or your favorite hot sauce).
