Drama: Fated To Love You (命中注定我爱你)
Posted April 29, 2008on:
ISWAK 2, They Kiss Again, sadly just ended last Sunday but I’ve already found a new drama to watch! It’s called 命中注定我爱你. It’s Fated to Love You or Destiny Love in English. It stars 阮經天 (Ethan Ruan) who has only played minor roles in Summer x Summer and Hana Kimi. It also stars 陳喬恩 (Joe Chen) from 王子變青蛙/The Prince Who Turned Into A Frog and 剪刀石頭布/Rock Paper Scissors. I’m writing all of this off of the top of my head so excuse any mistakes.
This drama is pretty comedic and not too sappy or serious. The first episodes, as always, start pretty slowly. I’ve attached the first part of the first episode I found on Youtube. Enjoy!
07/25/08 Update: Fated is getting really good after the first couple episodes. Now that the series is coming to an end, the viewership is at a high. Ethan made the bet to swim naked because he didn’t expect the ratings to shoot so high. Neither did I. Perhaps it’s because of the current lack of Taiwanese television or FTKY is really that good,
