Aww, they look really cute (still can’t believe Ivy Chen is 33!) But I don’t think Chen Xiao has much luck with modern dramas, seeing how his previous two – Love & Life & Lie and Above the Clouds are yet to be released. Maybe third time the charm? Mr. Delicious Miss Match (火柴小姐和美味先生) is a modern drama about… cooking! Yay! A different subject! Filming started in late December and wrapped up a few days ago, dropping some official stills.
The synopsis sounds decent: Chen Xiao plays a talented chef, with his keep ability to distinguish and list off all the ingredient in every dish he’s eaten. While he’s strict and requires the best quality in his food, his handsome chef image is only a means to achieve his revenge plan. Only when he meets the heroine (Ivy Chen) that he realizes the good in him, allowing himself to be mischievous and relaxed. She’s described as frank, impulsive but provides warmth and kindness. With her keen sense of smell, unrivaled by anyone else, her dream is to travel and taste all the delicacies around the world, against her dad’s wishes – he wants her to take over the family’s rice shop. One day, dad accepts a star recruit in the form of our hero. She shares a connection with him through their love for good food – she loves to eat, he loves to cook. At some point in the story, the hero loses his sense of taste, and she stays beside his dejected self, making way for their sweet romance down the line.
Chen Xiao looks 100% handsome in here. *swoons* A man in a chef uniform? HELL TO THE YEA!
