Set to replace In A Good Way (我的自由年代), SETTV’s new friday drama Love Meets Cupid (愛情遇見丘比特) held its press conference yesterday and have changed its chinese title to Love Myself or You (喜歡。一個人) , it’s estimated to premiere on 16th May since it will be following after IAGW.
Jasper Liu‘s (IUUI, Amour et Pâtisserie) new hairstyle is killing me in a bad way… I was like, “Noooooooo!!! SETTV!!! What are you doing to my cute puppy Jasper Liu?” the moment I saw his hair. I’m crying a river of tears right now, I miss his trademark Broccoli head already. His new hairstyle actually looks good in his own selfie but WHY OH WHY they have to style it that way for their press conference?
On the upside, his smile and dimples are as cute as ever soooo… It kinda compensates for everything. Aside from collaborating before in Golden Bell, Puff Kuo (Just You) and Jasper Liu actually share a common friend in real life and that makes them comfortable with each other so I’m not too worried about their chemistry. Puff always have great chemistry with her on-screen partners, whether it’s Yan-J for a commercial, Kun-Da from Inborn Pair, Aaron Yan from Just You or her current We Got Married Global Edition‘s virtual husband, Kim Hee-Chul, they all look cute with her. Puff joked that since Jasper has quite a small face and they’ll be filming in a restaurant with a lot of food, she’ll try her best to control her appetite, she’s skinny though.. Jasper also mentioned that his nickname in the past is cartoon character crayon shinchan as his eyebrows are thick, heh!
The story will revolve around a French cuisine restaurant, I described briefly about their characters but from their press conference, it seems that Puff’s new role will be someone who’s calm, collected and indifferent, not her usual candy-bubbly characters anymore. They’ll be playing as experts in French cuisine and especially went through training for their roles, which explain the picture I saw a few days ago, uploaded by Puff’s manager. As I mentioned earlier, Jasper will be playing as a chef who just returned from France and Puff will be playing as a restaurant manager, not only they’ll be co-workers in the same restaurant but they will also be neighbors. In the beginning, they don’t get along well but feelings starts to grow as they spend more time together. It is revealed in the press conference that the restaurant that Puff and Jasper works belongs to Jasper’s dad and they met before when they were young 20 years ago.
Childhood troupe and bickering couple, there’s nothing fresh about the plot but when they describe Puff’s character to be calm and indifferent, that spiked up my interest as you don’t see much “calm” heroines. I’ll be checking out this drama no matter what just for the cute pairing and hopefully, this will revive the slump in Taiwanese dramas as with the highest rating for Sunday drama is Aaron Yan’s Fall in Love With Me (愛上兩個我) at 1.4 only and the highest rating for Friday drama is IAGW, at 1.80++, it decreased a lot from their usual 2+ ratings, that is a pretty bad average ratings for Tw-dramas.
In the mean time, excuse me while I hide in a corner and mourns for the loss of Jasper Liu’s broccoli head.

Sorry… I just went spazzing and fangirling over my boy, Jasper Liu again. It’s difficult to refrain myself from being a fangirl.
