By all that is drama holy, if Marry Me, or Not ends up being half as good as it looks in this particular preview then I will stop bemoaning 2015 being lackluster in dramas. Initially this started off as just the reunion vehicle for hit TW-drama Office Girls costars Roy Qiu and Alice Ke, two of my favorite Taiwan acting talent and certifiable a gold standard when it comes to costar chemistry. For once it’s not based on reel life something going on, but genuinely two actors who spark effortlessly with each other onscreen and have a platonic friendship offscreen. Never would have thought it in a million years prior to OG, still have a hard time believing it’s really there even now.
The drama has been dropping previews left and right but this latest one is EPIC. The production just released the official theme song MV for the drama, a song called “See a Move, Dodge a Move” in a nod to boxing and/or romantic shenanigans. Performed by Joanne Tseng and Real of the group F.i.R., the song is instantaneously awesome, but made even more so by the compilation of scenes from the drama that had my jaw on the floor followed by screeching “I Need This NOW!” Holy shiz is the action hopping and the sparks flying every which way. I’m not just rooting for Roy and Alice’s characters to get together, I also feel for Joanne to finally make it work with Harry Chang‘s second male lead. Argh, so much feels!
