a new past time
During one of those saturday nights when Hubz had his frens over for mahjong, i decided to rummage through BIL’s taiwan drama collection. Here I mean the idol kind… with good looking lead male and female artiste. Not those long winded soap operas like 爱 that airs every weekend.
Anyway… i did that just to past time on a lonely sat night, while working on some pieces of jewellery for urbannook.
I started on “Why Why Love” (換換愛)… A romantic comedy about a girl, Tong Jia Di, burdened with work to pay off her family’s debts… yet needs more to life than that. Hence, her best friend sneaks in a “Love” coupon into Jia Di's raffle box with the hope that a lucky guy will draw it become Jia Di’s prince. As it so happens, Huo Yan, the compassionate manager Jia Di has secret crush on, is the lucky guy who she affections calls 第10个男生. But, tho' the prince can exchange the coupon for Cinderella's love, it doesn't mean he will, especially when his devilish younger brother is determined to exchange his “Master/Angel” coupon for her servitude.
In the first part of the series, viewers are left to guess who will be the one who walks tru life with Jia Di. As with the saying goes…. “男人不坏女人不爱”, we should have expected that Jia Di would end up with Huo Yan’s brother, Huo Da. Before there can be a happy ending, the lovers have to go through a test which finds Huo Da at the brink of death.
I was hooked on this series, and now have gone to look for more series to follow. New past time means more to look forward after each hard working day! Bring on the chips and coke!
I wonder why I never got hooked onto K-dramas after numerous times of trying…. hmmm……
