"Invincible Shan Bao Mei" has high ratings; criticism from viewers and online netizens

SETTV idol drama "Fated to Love You" aired its last episode on Sunday, and new drama "Invincible Shan Bao Mei" followed after it. Average ratings of "Fated to Love You" was 9.8 and "Invincible Shan Bao Mei" had average rating of 7.25, which means SETTV maintains its top position. Although ratings are high, there is also a lot of criticism from viewers and online netizens. The ending of "Fated to Love You" was also said to be a huge disappointment.

The main reason is because SETTV took advantage of FTLY's high ratings and before ISBM aired, it kept announcing that Ethan and Qiao En would appear in the new drama. Hence, many loyal fans of FTLY continued watching after FTLY ended, up till past midnight, but the result was that they didn't see anything, but rather they had to wait for the second episode of ISBM.

FTLY's last episode reached 12.14 as the highest segment rating, and many viewers were sad to finally see an end to their favourite drama. However, this did not stop the criticism of the ending, and they said that the 3 sisters giving birth together was very unrealistic and unsuitable.

In response to all this, SETTV manager Chen Yu Shan said that Ethan and Qiao En's scenes in ISBM was originally meant for only episode 1, but it is because they couldn't fit all of it in, so had to continue to episode 2. She expressed, "It's really not on purpose. Plus, viewers can see Ethan and Qiao En in episode 2, shouldn't that be very happy?"
