I’m seriously in a teeth gnashing state when it comes to TW-drama Marry Me or Not, and it’s a bipolar situation no less as I alternate between that and bouts of smiling like a loony because the OTP makes me so darn happy. I find this drama confllicting because it can coast so well on the fantastic lead characters and their incredible chemistry alone, even situating them in barely any narrative and it would still work, so placing these two beloved characters in the mess that was episode 12’s big bad debacle left me raging at the screen and actually wanting less substantive fare. Thank goodness Huan Huan was not actually violated by Qian Yao’s asshole brother, even if they both deserve to be dumped into a pit somewhere in the mountains and left there to suffer.
It did allow Justin to unfurl the full extend of his loving boyfriend capacity and HOMG was it something to behold. Every single scene in Busan was To. Die. For. The best romance sequence I have watched in eons and will place on continual loop from now until eternity. Thank you for making me believe in love again, you two, and for showing me that the ephemeral thing called onscreen chemistry can’t be forced but when it’s there then it’s an enduring flame as Alice Ke and Roy Qiu exemplifies so masterfully. I’ve also written off second leads Sheng Nan and Qian Yao, both are totally dead to me and exist solely to FF because neither has any excuse for how they keep throwing Huan Huan under the bus.
