"Perfect Couple" is a good drama for its comedic parts because I found myself laughing out loud in many instances. However, I think they dragged out the main two secrets way too much, and gave 柳文昭 too much screen-time. For instance, they had him torture our OTP and their mothers for like 2 whole episodes, which could’ve been done in a couple of minutes!! If they took out most of the angst and the unnecessary drama caused by 二皇子 and 柳文昭, it would’ve been one incredible costume drama. I mean, given how fast their downfall was - which was all resolved in about 10 minutes - all that drama beforehand simply didn’t play out or equate to how things ended with them.
And what about the fact that 元寶 suddenly knew that it was 二皇子’s doings? All along the way, 元寶’s guesses at those who have been trying to kill him were, well, sorta incorrect (or maybe because they didn’t show us 元寶’s findings, but still) - and it is for that reason, 元寶’s monologue in front of 太子 and 太后 wasn’t believable at all, unfortunately. It just didn’t have the impact I expected.
Oh well, I’m willing to overlook those drawbacks, because of two OTPs were ridiculously cute and we are given the ending that they are able to live “happily ever after” as one happy family :)
