I’m actually surprised, but not that surprised at the results.

Not only did ITWY shaved off percentage points from OG’s previous rating, it also outdid it. So it seems everyone in Taiwan was highly anticipating the ending on how Cheng You Qing and Da Ren Ge’s story would end.
I’m happy for ITWY. I hope it sets a new standard for Sunday idol dramas, although at the same time, I don’t mind the variety. We can’t have ITWY-type of dramas all the time. We also need the light breezy OG-type.
The plot point for ITWY was quite straightforward in Sunday’s episode: will You Qing go on and marry that tattooed-cad or will she finally give her best friend a chance? I thought that having only one episode to resolve this angle won’t leave much room for happy moments between the best friends, but as angeleyes said, it was a satisfying ending with enough LDR-CYQ moments.
On the other hand, with TTV’s recent decision to extend OG, the story had to be stretched too although it doesn’t feel that way to me because I am enjoying this drama. As long as that office witch aka Zheng Kai Er keels over or something… except of course that won’t be happening too soon and she has tricks up her filthy sleeves again. But episode 17 was full of Qin Zi Qi and Shen Xing Ren moments. I love how the romance between them is happening gradually. I am amused at a friend’s complaint that the OG romance is increasingly looking like “kindergarten” to her but I find it refreshing compared to the blatant skinship that’s been happening in other dramas. And I find it actually sweet.
