Finally! SETTV has confirmed the start date for Love Forward with Amber Kuo and Tammy Chen as February 12th, 2012. Which means that Office Girls will end at 24 episodes (taking into account one episode will be preempted for Lunar New Year), making it as long as Fated to Love You and The Fierce Wife, all ratings bonanzas for the network. I can handle 24 episodes (and will probably miss my Zi Qi and Xing Ren dearly), but 30 episodes would be a nail in the coffin for this adorable drama. With only three more episodes left, now totally curious how the drama will resolve everything since it’s dragged the Zi QI identity secret out for this long. For once I want my leading lady to have a sudden and inexplicable personality change, and totally just let go of all her insecurities and worries and just love Zi Qi with abandon, which is how he’s been loving her all along.
