There are those shows that are complete imposters. Cutie Pie is one of them. There is a reason why the synopsis is so short because honestly, this show was about nothing. I watched the whole thing and was even being diligent about watching weekly until I couldn’t take it anymore. The plot made no sense and I couldn’t even really tell you about it. All I can gather from it that it was a long PSA about marriage equality covered in some light soft core porn. Not even lying. But let me get to the good stuff before the unreasonable.

Chemistry. There was no lack of chemistry between our leads. Between the heated looks and steamy kisses full of all the tongue, no one really cared what they were talking about, which was a whole lot of nothing. It started off with an interesting premise because I didn’t see the arranged gay marriage thing before. But I should have known with the forced cohabtation and just full on sex scenes that this wasn’t going to be about the plot. Once I realized that I wasn’t going to get clear answers to why Hia Lian was so secretive and why Kuea was even trying to hide this rebelious side of him, I just waited for the steamy stuff. Even the second lead couple had undenialble chemistry but this wasn’t these actors’ first time being paired up. Only thing that frustrated me about them is that I STILL can’t tell you why they were having issues. Like maybe I blacked out during that explanation.

Music. Outside of the hidden not so hidden agenda of the show, it felt like a very long music video for our stars. I get that Keua was a musician and that Nunew is a very talented singer, but some of the musical numbers went on too long, no matter how good they were. After the first two, I kinda skipped through them.

Ultimately, I am surprised I finished this because I’ve dropped shows that weren’t this bad before. The only way I can recommend this show in good conscience is if you don’t care about plot. This is a good show to just watch pretty boys kiss and make heart eyes at each other.
