Taiwanese dramas have been going down in popularity. Not that I know for sure, but I can certainly say that my interest in them has decreased ever since I watched a few episodes of some series and couldn’t bother to continue. So…they’ve gone down in popularity for me.
However, an article noted that Taiwanese dramas in general get ratings in the low-single digits, like 2’s and 4’s. The last drama to make Taiwanese drama history was Fated to Love You, getting ratings in the mid-teens. So to remake that little television magic, a spin-off/sequel was discussed to bring back together the cast and crew of Fated. Unfortunately, due to schedule conflicts, Ethan Ruan and Chen Qiao En won’t be coming back.
Instead, they’ll be replaced with Rainie Yang and Joseph Chang.
My first reaction was *o_O ACK!* I was kinda skeptical about Rainie taking on the lead role for this spin-off, now titled Drunken to Love You, but then I saw her new photo. She apparently cut off her long hair back in December, and man, I love the short hair on her. (More on short hair later…) Her new look kinda convinces me that she’s grown up a bit, and that she might be able to take on the role of a tough girl.
As for Joseph Chang – WHO!? Honestly – never heard of him; shallowly – not that much of a looker compared to Ethan Ruan. Boo.
Of course, what made Fated to Love You memorable was the bed scene, which will reprise here. I hope the drama will be as funny as the title. Though it’s meant to have a totally different plot, I’m sure a drunken one night stand is sure to lead to unexpected pregnancy.
