Attention, Love! (Taiwanese Drama Review)
This Taiwanese drama is so cute. Well the first two episodes anyway.
But having seen the preview for the next episode, it seems the budding relationship between the leads is going to be more complicated.
The story goes that during a 108 birthday celebration of a community patriarch, two best friends attended the party with their pregnant wives, who were already aware of the sex of their babies. The babies were named by the patriarch as Li Zheng (played by Wang Zi) and Shao Xi (played by Joanne Tseng) and he said that they should be together, soon after this pronouncement he died.
Therefore before the babies were even born the babies were betrothed. Shao Xi was guarded by her father from when she was a girl. She was not allowed to play with boys and she learned all manners of self defence and more.
Shao Xi was a tomboy and became known for her pugnacious nature.
Years later, her parents announced that Li Zheng, her fiance, is coming to stay with them in Taiwan as his uncle, who was looking after him was going to get married. Li Zheng lost his parents in a car accident at a very young age. He was being looked after by his young uncle, who took him to Japan.
Anyway Li Zheng had grown into a very personable young man. Shae Xi was enchanted with him, everytime he is close by she hears Close to you as a mental background music! 🙂
Li Zheng had started tutoring Shao Xi. Shao Xi bet that if she gets to the top 100, Li Zheng has to treat her to the movies, 4D with popcorn and drink, which Li Zheng agreed to immediately.
This episode is a bittersweet story for the young lovers. Shao Xi was keeping a diary, unfortunately it was read loudly by the class bully. It told all her secret longing for Li Zheng.
Li Zheng asked Shao Xi if he was the one she likes. For her pride’s sake Shao Xi denied that it was him after accidentally hearing him telling some guys that he sees Shao Xi not as a younger sister but as a little brother. Shao Xi was upset and embarrassed. She left without hearing the rest of what Li Zheng said that he will protect her from anyone.
There are funny moments when Shao Xi tried to forget Li Zheng, like trying to get herself a pretend boyfriend.
Li Zheng is showing a rather steely determination to protect Shao Xi. This is developing quite nicely.
The end of the episode showed Shao Xi meeting Li Zheng for their date but the class bully was there.
A new face was also been just introduced!
