I’m having a hard time succinctly verbalizing what I love so much about TW-drama Marry Me or Not. Even if it didn’t star my beloved Roy Qiu and Alice Ke reunion coupling, the narrative storytelling is top notch on its own. What Roy and Alice bring is incomparable sizzle and delicate nuance, so one moment I think the screen is going to catch fire, but then it’s all in the subtle glances and knowing gestures.
Which is to say, this drama rocks so hard an entire arena tour might not be enough to contain it. Episode 5 brought the OTP to a day of living together that came about for all the wrong reasons but delivered all the right (i.e. genuine feelings). That’s what I love the most about Huan Huan and Justin – they are playing each other, and both know it, but that can’t stop the real falling for each other emotions to pour forth naturally. This is drama romance at it’s best, all manufactured situations but the feels are real.
