Good lord, that is like the cutest poster for a rom-com drama, but why must it be paired with the worst possible English title on the planet? Did CTS have no one on staff who has more than an elementary schooler’s comprehension of English? The upcoming TW-drama, which I initially translated the title literally as True Love Asks for Trouble (真愛找麻煩), has released the first stills of the leads along with a poster calling the drama Inborn Pair. What. The. &*^%?
When I read the title, I keep thinking “ingrown hair” (ewwww), “inbred pair” (I’ll lay off the non-PC inbreeding jokes in case someone gets offended), or some horror movie about conjoined twins. The horrible English title aside, the drama seems rather cute based on the first stills. Starring Chris Wang, Annie Chen, Jenna Wang, and Kun Da, the preliminary synopsis reveals that the OTP were betrothed to each other when they were still in the womb. I like to see how they attempt to convince the viewers that arranged marriages somehow can be a match made in Heaven.
Annie is cute but I’ve only recently started to like her as an actress after watching her supporting turn in Material Queen (she was great as rival model Sasha). Same goes for Chris, who still isn’t a very strong actor, but he made an impression on me in The Fierce Wife. I’ll definitely be keeping tabs on this drama.
