Taiwanese drama We Best Love: No. 1 For You (永遠的第一名) is written by Lin Pei Yu (Obsessed, Crossing The Line, Right Or Wrong) and stars Sam Lin and Yu in the two leading male roles. Yu plays a top student of his class and is used to the fact that he’s number one until one day another name tops his name! Yes, the other class topper is played by Sam Lin.

First Impressions: When a Woman Chases A Man (Tdrama, 2017)

Although Taiwanese dramas are what got me hooked on Asian dramas in the first place, since I’ve started watching the Chinese costume dramas, it’s been awhile since I’ve watched any. Then I saw the trailer for this series starring Tia Li who has been a supporting actor in two of my fave T-dramas, “Miss Rose” and “Marry Me Or Not”, alongside my favorite second male lead from “Fabulous Boys”, Hwang In Deok, and decided to add a modern drama to my current rotation of shows.

Andy Chen and Wei Man concoct drama tropes in Memory Love

Memory Love (噗通噗通我愛你) is an upcoming Taiwanese drama starring Andy Chen Yi, Mandy Wei Man, Jolin Chien, and Kris Shen. At first glance, it looks like a fluffy romcom drama but noooooo, was so wrong. Our heroine has a good life and good boyfriend but all of that is ripped away from hers when her boyfriend dies in a car accident and she has amnesia, leading to an identity switch with her friend (Mandy Tao)! Her boyfriend’s heart is donated…to our male lead (Andy), of course. All the usual tropes thrown all in one pot!

After giving birth, Ruby Lin is now officially back in business, producing and starring as the female lead in an upcoming Taiwanese drama My Dear Boy, alongside Derek Zhang (Prince of Wolf) and Zhou Xun’s husband, Archie Kao.

Stand By Me: Episode 1 Recap

The first episode of Stand By Me (在一起,就好) basically boils down to battles between a shrewd producer vs. an even more manipulative general manager. Everyone else are just collateral damage. Sorry. Foot soldiers in their war. But it seems their war has nothing to do with making good TV and everything to do with with a decades-old misreported news on one of the most devastating earthquake to hit Taiwan. And our rookie director may be the root of their animosity, even if they don’t know it yet.
