As reported earlier this year, Taiwan will remake It Started With A Kiss one more time because you know it’s just so unique (LOL). The remake is called Miss In Kiss (恶作剧之吻) and it features rising stars in Dino Lee and Esther Wu. I recognize our lead actor in various movies and from the promo videos, he appears to be the most expressive of the actors so far. Good or bad, you would have to check in to know!
Short and long trailers and songs are posted after the jump.
What is the appeal of this story anyway? Everyone chases to make their own adaptation. No one can appear as clueless as Ariel Lin, feel as spunky as Jung So Min, and look as adorable as Honoka Miki. The girl is the heart of the series and I find myself not as drawn to the female lead as the past versions. Playing the ultimate high IQ robot boy is Dino Lee and you might remember him in the hit movie Our Times as the perfect handsome student. His loyal, dim ladylove will be played by Esther Wu. Nope, I have nothing concrete about this young actress. *shrugs*
It’s been a long time since I squee this hard over the stills of a movie alone. SO MUCH CUTENESS abounds in this upcoming Taiwanese youth movie, Our Times, starring a wagon of fresh faces in a story we are well acquainted with in recent cinema trend – the highs and lows of emotional upheavals during those teenage years (here it is the 1990s), enhanced by prickly hormones and physical body changes. HA. At this point, Jerry Yan, Chen Qiao En, and Andy Lau‘s cameos are just icing on the top because the real stars are the sprouting seeds ready to blossom!
