My personal thoughts- written by Jazmine K.
I’m not going to lie to you, I am still puzzled by the decision to extend the drama by not one but two more episodes. I have been watching the drama and I don’t understand how the screenwriter managed to make it so convoluted and so overly stuffed that it would still need two more episodes.
Despite the fact that the drama has been on a downward trajectory and has not been able to hit the high ratings that it did with its first episodes , this strikes me as an odd decision.
The drama is more than halfway through but I don’t think it will be able to get 20% in ratings unless it’s probably for its last episodes. I still stand by my previous review when I said that the drama didn’t need to be extended to a third season, you can tell they’re really milking it until it cannot be milked anymore. It is still fun to a certain extent but the plot is long gone in my opinion.
If I were the screenwriter, I would want it to end with a good reputation not to become whatever it has become which is honestly pretty sad to see.
Despite me saying I don’t understand, it’s ratings are over 10% which is still a very impressive number because many dramas that are airing for the past couple of months have not been able to do what it did, it is just sad what it’s has become.
