At a scheduled 15 episodes, and all pre-filmed in advance, TW-drama Marry Me or Not has the best pacing of any drama I’ve watched all year. There is no lagging or flagging as the story goes from a stroll to a brisk walk in a natural pace that has the events and emotions building fluidly. Episode 9 continued with the great reveals, including finding out what Huan Huan has been keeping from former bestie Sheng Nan regarding high school crush Jiang Qian Yao.
I really want to root more for the secondary romance but he’s not making it easy to like him, even for someone as shrieky and emotionally immature as Sheng Nan. Luckily the OTP had a major breakthrough, spurred on by wholly fictional danger, but it’s believable that Huan Huan and Justin will finally see the forest beyond the trees and admit their feelings for each other. It’s time for a reset and I can’t wait for episode 10 to dial their romance back up to combustible.
