TTV has had a stronghold on the Friday night time slot in TW-dramas for quite some time. Ever since The Fierce Wife was a blockbuster, many of its dramas get lots of publicity even when the ratings aren’t that robust, like Ex-Boyfriend which had an ending that stunned the viewers. With In Between wrapping up in a week, coming up is a drama I have been eagerly waiting for. What is Love is the first drama where Chris Wu is finally not a second male lead. Hurrah and about time! Co-starring Chou You Ting, who is about 5 years older than Chris in real life, the drama also has the leading lady older than the leading guy.
A bare bones plot synopsis describes the story as an older woman who still dreams about a fairy tale romance meeting a guy who is a serial dater and wonders if they could possibly have a lasting relationship, She wants marriage, he wants instant romance, so who will change for the other person? The official stills and the first teasers show how pretty this drama looks, and TTV Friday dramas tends towards more contemplative fare that delves into realistic considerations on relationships. Everything looks peachy perfect to me, so long as the producer doesn’t pull another Ex-Boyfriend and have the leads not end up together. My Chris needs to get the girl or else I will turn into Bizarro Koala.
Chris and Chou You Ting seem to have lovely chemistry together. At the recent media day, they looked totally in sync.
Teasers for What is Love:
AND THIS GUY FINALLY GETS HIS LEADING ROLE!
Yes… finally …………
I say about time! He’s such a scene stealer he totally deserves this
totally agree ! about time he gets the lead .. wow, most 2nd leads are now up to the first ..
Finally…how we adore you Chris Wu
I don’t even care about the plot much except FINALLY 🙂
Gosh, I was just re-watching Inborn Pair yesterday and caught his part where he was lovelorn and lost. Man, finally.
Oops. Sorry for the repetition. I am not even much of a fan but sick of him in 2nd lead territory when his acting is so much better.
it’s gonna be 90 eps?
Finally, I am so excited for him! I’ll definitely be tuning in for this one.
high five* horray for a worthy actor becoming first lead!
btw, the texts in the second teaser is really heart-warming =3 if it doesn’t pull a taiwanese-manga-drama on me i think I’ll enjoy watching it =D thanks for putting this drama on my radar, Ms. Koala~~~ =3
Yes!! I’ve loved Chris Wu ever since Autumn’s Concerto. IMO, Mu Cheng should’ve ended up with him, but alas, that’s not the way Asian drama works.
Anyway, the premise sounds really great. I can’t wait!
It will be tragic if the one drama where he gets the leading role, he doesn’t end up with the girl.. I wouldn’t know what to say.
The drama is pretty generic, so it’s all up to how good the leads get together and look together..
KYAAAA! Ditto! FINALLY! Chris was awesome in IP! Can’t wait!
Another reason I’ll be following is because the writer and creator is the same as EX-BF but they promised that this wouldn’t be a cruel drama like EX-BF! LOL!
But my goodness, the 2nd trailer looks so beautiful!
The start of the 1st teaser is a spoiler for “In Between”‘s last episode?! Isn’t that Xiao Yang throwing the bouquet and Ke Huai standing next to her???
it is Ke Huai and Xiao Yang indeed! 🙂
I’m so excited for this! I hope it turns out well. It’s been too long since I’ve enjoyed a twdrama.
I see Duncan Chou as the second lead!! Exicted too!!!!
What Is Love / 花是愛 will be out on 2012-07-20; thus you can view the preview at http://sugoideas.com/drama-2012/what-is-love/
I think this drama didn’t get a good rating when it was showing, right? I’m watching it now, and really like it. It’s so light, and honestly I feel the topic is more real than most drama. Chris Wu of course was a delight!
