This is something I usually don’t do at all, but this manhwa does not have a review, which is my reason for this but usually I only review ones I really Like. I had a problem with this manhwa ~ Fated to Love You, serious issues. I don’t think there are too many male leads I’ve disliked as much as the guy in this manhwa.
Yes, I pretty much Hated the male lead. Yes, I’ve read many where the guy transforms from a jerk with “the power of love”: sometimes that is good
like in Hana Yori Dango or and sometimes it annoys me, but really this is pushing it. The redemption just does not equal the bullying. The female lead, Chen Xin Yi, is sooo hopeless that she puts up with him too, and yes she does have her reason, she is pregnant so forced into her choice, but still, get a backbone girl. So it has the cliché of the male bully she is forced to marry, but it doesn’t stop there. Cun Xi has another girl too, and her treats the female lead like she is worthless even though she is pregnant with his own kid. Chen Xin Yi, is too nice for her own good.
This is not a spoiler as it says she is pregnant in the synopsis.
And yes it also has the cliché of a second male who is like night and day to the first one, he is such a better choice that I can’t forgive her for not realizing that and leaving the lead jerk. He is like a saint compared to the jerk. So I couldn’t really see her staying with the lead when she knew how bad he was. I think the second guy would have loved her even if she was pregnant…
I don’t see recommending you to read this except if you want to study the problems with some stories or what girls are forced to go through because of society norms, or if you really like seeing the character you are supposed to feel for treated badly or something. Yes, I know that many girls are forced to marry guys they don’t love because of pregnancy. So I know about the problems that women face because of pregnancy and society. It is a good example of the girl making a bad choice of a partner and letting the guy do whatever he wants since he’s a man, and it does show transformation later in the story that is typical of this type of stories, but please you have been Forewarned.
Sorry. I think just watching the Drama version would be better.
I guess it is a 6, as it’s not that far from typical of this type and the characterizations are well done for a girl in a bad situation, and the art is not bad either nor is the writing bad actually and it does have humor. I did read the whole thing. But it was that I could not enjoy reading it.
So, It was mostly the main guy that ruined this for me personally.
