I already like what I’m seeing in the previews for upcoming SETTV Friday night drama, other than male lead Lego Lee’s orange hair updo style and wishing the drama could have a less generic English title. The network and it’s gazillion Love dramas, like Love Forward and Love, Now and Love Around for example, made even more frustrating when some don’t even the Love in the Chinese title. That’s the case here as Love Cuisine is called 料理高校生 which translates as Cuisine High School Student, which firmly explains the story setting which takes place in a high school.
Lego Lee and his leading lady Allison Lin will both be playing teachers, with him the cuisine instructor while she’s a master bartender. They took to an actual cuisine academy this week to promote the drama, and Lego even got propositioned by a female student acting if he’ll consider dating a high school student. LOL, only if he wants to get arrested, girl. I haven’t watched a Taiwan school setting drama in years so it feels like a welcome arrival, especially with the leads playing teachers rather than aging back to high school. The first teasers are out and look adorable, with Allison allaying my fears that she might be one of those annoying female leads onscreen. Nope, she’s cute without being cloying, and looking great next to Lego.
