Love, Timeless – Taiwanese Drama Review
I love this drama. Love it, love it!
It is a time travel, going back to ten years ago when the characters of the story were in their sophomore college.
(By the way, as per time travel studies and research, it is impossible to go back in time but it may be possible to go into the future.) 🙂
The drama posed the question “What would you do if you can travel back in time?”
Would you change the course of your life?
Would you repeat it as it is?
Would you approach that goddess you had a huge crush on in the past?
Would you cherish that someone, who’s always been there for you?
Zhao Yu and Kai Jia lived together back when they were in college. Zhao Yu’s family looked after Kai Jia as her mother had passed away whilst her no-good of a father was in prison.
Kai Jia had secretly love Zhao Yu for more than 10 years. She thought her love was finally realised when a drunken Zhao Yu slept with her at present time. Zhao immediately put her in the right that he had only ever looked at her as a sister and their sleeping together was a mistake – a big mistake, a drunken one-night stand. He does not feel anything for her. Kai Jia was absolutely heartbroken.
Back when they were younger in college, they had a little group of friends comprising of Zhao Yu (Nick Chau), Kai Jia (Summer Meng), Ruo Bi (Huang Wei Ting), Li Jun Ren (Chang Chieh), Hai Meng (Johnny Yang) and Zhi Ni (Lan Ya Yun) who always meet at the clock tower.
At this time, Ruo Bi and Jun Ren had gotten married but the marriage is an unhappy one with infidelity and misunderstanding involved.
Zhao Yu is having problems in his workplace and Kai Jia was pining from unrequited love.
Out of the blue, Zhao Yu and Kai Jia received a message from Chen Ruo Bi, the goddess, the girl everybody ( including Zhao Yu) was in love with in college. The message was to meet up at the old clock tower, where they used to meet and share happy memories.
Anyway, they found Rou Bi Li by the edge of the top of the tower with her guitar and was poised to jump.
Out of a sudden, Kai Jia and Zhao Yu were transported to when they were in college.
From all the confusion of having history literally repeating itself, Kai Jia resolved to start over and get over her one-sided-love with Zhao Yu.
For some reason Jun Ren had taken quite a shine with Kai Jia.
(I thought Jun Ren and Kai Jia had such a good chemistry. I actually like them to get together!!! 🙂 )
But Zhao Yu is suddenly behaving like a dog in a manger, though he wants a chance with Ruo Bi, his college crush, who incidentally returns Zhao Yu’s feelings as well, he doesn’t want Kai Jia taken away from him. He was besides himself when Jun Ren and Kai Jia decided to have a weekend away for just the two of them.
Episode 9 also showed that Zhao Yu and Kai Jia are not the only time travellers. Jun Ren was one as well. He was trying to change the course of his life, ergo, being more attentive to Kai Jia as he said he was not really in love with Ruo Bi. Their marriage was a business transaction between their families.
That is the gist of the story.
I love it and it was quite hard to wait for the next instalment. It is a 90 minutes each of 15 episodes. Can’t wait for next week.
