So the ratings on Douban for C-drama Unchained Love (Forbidden Love) really caught up on the general feedback with its ratings at 6.7 on the heel on its conclusion last week. I was interested in checking back in after hearing it got better in the middle probably around episode 14 and after. But then the drama ended last week and all I heard were howls and yowls of disappointment so this drama just feels like an inverted parabola haha. The final episode which I did watch just……ended…..and feels so wan and limp in storytelling. I can watch Dylan Wang even when he’s not the best actor but I’m having a hard time thinking his stans really loved this character or performance, it was extra stiff and awkward in any scene and made the worse with Chen Yu Qi doing her bug-eyed acting magic. Chalk another up for “looks good on paper and fails in execution” C-drama.
