The Forbidden Marriage Episode 5: Review

We feel awful for Shin-won because Joseon's friend-zoning was risky. Poor guy disappoints his best buddy and commits treason by fighting a monarch and cutting off his robe, only for So-rang to say they are buddies.

Along with the King, we fall in love with So-rang, forgetting her role at court and that she is a con artist. The Forbidden Marriage's first half ends fast when So-rang imagines shaking the king and asking him why he fell for her fraud.

If So-rang is so poor at pretending to be the Crown Princess, we would too if we fell for someone who believed spirits could inhabit people. This time, we observe So-rang blundering and stumbling every time she pretends to be possessed, making us question how blind the King must be to fall for her charade.
