Check out Love OST.
小淩: The funniest part was watching Shu Qi’s BTS scared of lightning strike when she said (responding to Director Doze Niu’s caution to be careful of the Lightning God), “I’ve done too many naughty things in my life. (She’s thinking, “I’m gonna get hit.”) Let Ruan Jing Tian film his part first.” 哈哈~ BTS segment of other main actor/actress on Love YouTube.
I’m going at it like a fiery bull sees RED. My Trifecta! Last installation of the triple play (see Monga & The Soul Of Bread), thus in recognition to my Taiwanese roots, herein enjoy the boba tea, m~mmm boba, and make yourself at home in my cineplex. Adieu. 再见。
Kuan: “I’ll support you for the rest of your life.” “你的未來，我全包了。”
Zoe: “I don’t need support, I only need love.” “我不接受包养，我只接受爱。”

Plot: The story hops between two big cities, Taipei and Beijing, about eight lonely souls searching a great love to be responsible for ultimately. Whether being in a romantic relationship, deepening a kinship among family, or strengthening a friendship, the show insures Love as the common denominator fueling life’s existence. Dynamic Director-Actor Doze Niu (as Lu Ping) plays a wealthy businessman divorcé with a daughter in college Lu Hsiao-Ni (played by Amber Kuo) who copes with her best friend’s and her boyfriend’s betrayal by distributing her anger through art. From a one night stand, a surprising pregnancy nearly ruins a perfect friendship among classmates, like a car crashing into the water with trust and respect thrown away. Lu Ping seesaws between his daughter and his socialite girlfriend, Zoe Fang (played by Shu Qi), issues. Of course, one day Zoe is fed up with Mr. Lu’s womanizing ways and seeks pure love given by a stammer Li Hsiao-Kuan (played by Ethan Ruan) slogging between jobs as Zoe stole his first kiss and foremost devotion. Kuan stops his sister, Li Yi-jia (played by Ivy Chen), from having an abortion since the baby’s daddy, Kai (played by Eddie Peng), doesn’t love her. Kai drops the pregnancy test strip bicycling his way to a film club meeting besides Taipei’s most eligible luxe automotive’s bachelor, Mark Na (played by Mark Chao), who’s on his trip to Beijing meets and encounters a realtor named Jing Xiao-Ye (played by Vicki Zhao), who as a single mother to DouDou (played by Muran Lin), puts his fast paced life to the test.
So, what is Love? Love is responsibility, Love is the hidden shadow behind the real scene, Love is a moment of tears but filled up with endless smile, Love is a kiss, and Love is a beautiful memory.
小淩: Okay, my main reason why I chose this movie is to even the odds since Ethan Ruan stole Mark Chao’s thunder in Monga, so now, Mark is a total scene stealer in Love. Try not to blink, for a special appearance of the rest of those Monga hoodlums work together with Ethan’s character at a car wash. Sorry Ethan, your stutters were adorkable, but couldn’t beat a man embracing a child like his own son! I must have a super soft spot for an OCD alpha-male who would flip his perfect neat world over to fall in love with a messy single mom and uber cute son. =p
DouDou: “You’ve never met your dad so you won’t miss him, but I’ve already met you. I can’t stop missing you.” “你没见过你爸爸，所以你就不要希想他了。但我已经见过你了，我没办法不想你。”
Heart. Break. DouDou shatters my heart in bits and pieces.
Be on the look out for Amber Kuo too, the sweetheart who robs hearts and scenes herself. I think it’s her character’s strong facade personality which allures me and have me scanning for her in every scene. She’s so darn cute!
