Fated to Love You : The Ending

The story that started on cruises has come to an end. And because of HOT SHOT I lost interest on it.

Quite frankly, i felt that this series should have ended earlier. I was still anticipating future episodes when Xin Yi was still in Shanghai. And Cun Xi was doing all sorts of things to get her back until he learn of the wrong doing of Ana. At that time I thought it was going to end.

it took me a while to do a post about the ending. Actually it was only know that I did watch it. Last Sunday, I was in front of the tv but I was watching HOTSHOT. Truth is, when HOTSHOT started I loss the interest to watch FTLY. Because the drama has been predictable and i thought they should have ended it earlier to avoid being draggy.

Last night I decided to watch FATED TO LOVE YOU on cable tv. Actually it was not the one I wanted to watch but since it started 30 mins earlier than HOT SHOT so I stay tune to it until HOT SHOT goes on air.

I was able to watch it until the time Xin Yi met Cun Xi in the church for the wedding, after that I already watched HOT SHOT. Since drama is so predictable already and on my opinion have been dragging. I think that they have extended the story to enjoy the higher rating.

Everyone thought we are in for a FINALE. But I just checked YOUTUBE and there is a PREVIEW for EPISODE 23. And on the comments, they are telling that its actually 24 episodes. I just knew it. Because of the popularity of the drama they really have extended it. So the drama that will star Nicolas Teo (Smilling Pasta) will have to wait.

I haven’t watched any episode yet for EP22. Only part 1 has english sub yet as of this writing. 7am PH time. But if you want you can click here if there are other subs already available.

I almost did not watch this one because of the lenghty synopsis I read from AZNV. Especially on the part the story begins with Xiao Shi day dreaming on her balcony, wishing for a successful love. In her dazed state, she accidentally knocks her mug over the edge, which then lands and bounces off the front of He Qun’s sportscar, when he happened to be driving past. This marks the beginning of their intertwined destinies.

I am not sure why this drama did not became popular. It’s genre is the same as those popular Taiwanese Drama. It has drama, romance and comedy. The plot is the usual thing wherein rich boy fell in love with a poor girl. Not only a poor girl but one that was imprisoned because of illegal activity (she’s a con artist). lol. But don’t worry the crime is not that serious and she has done it for the love of a boyfriend who cheat on her. lol.

Here is the synopsis from Dramawiki :

And so I thought the writers only wanted to put some more scenes to enjoy their high ratings but somehow watching part 1 and part 2 of fated to love you made me realized that they wanted to do some redeeming on BIANCA BAI and BARON CHEN’s character who played Anna and Dylan.

Baron Chen is a newbie in the entertainment scene but Bianca Bai may look familiar because she played third wheel in the love story of Zhi Shu and Xiang Qin in IT STARTED WITH A KISS. Remember Hua Lan who became the fiancee of ZS. And made realized that ZS loves XQ ? Yeah, that’s her.

And so it did not end up this week. Just watching the preview would somehow give you that it won’t END yet. For this week, although they added the Dylan and Anna’s first step to being reunited as brother and sister, I can see that the drama is showing some signs that some upcoming scenes will be DRAGGY. Just like the Ying Ye 3 + 1.

Its Monday once again and that means, the 19th episode of FTLY was aired last night in Taiwan, so fanatics from all over the world are impatiently waiting for english subs. Oh, I wish I can speak Mandarin. lol. I think we are nearing the final stretch of the most viewed drama online and offline.

Here is what is expected from the drama last night :

Right now the drama is now its 18th episode. If what I read was right, FTLY will be ending in two weeks time. And if what happen to this episode is any indicator then I guess the closure is nearing. Not unless, because of the ratings they would decide to prolong the drama. Like they did to other Taiwanese drama. But right now FTLY is killing Rolling Stone of Jiro Wang hands down. That’s why there is a talk that HOTSHOTs starring Jerry Yan, Wu Chun and Show Luo will be shown as soon as possible.
