An accident entwines the lives of two complete strangers. When Buo Hai is involved in an accident, he is so worried about the girlfriend that he will leave behind that he grabs a random stranger, Ho Bu Fan, and asks him to tell his girlfriend that he is breaking up with her. When Bu Fan passes on the message of the dying man to the girlfriend, Hsu Man Man, he sees how upset she is about being dumped and does something on a whim. He takes out a traveler’s check and writes, “If you’re not married by the age of 30, leave it up to me!” and gives it to Man Man. Three years pass, and the incident is all but forgotten – until Man Man bumps into Bu Fan again on a train. When Bu Fan learns that Man Man is not yet married, can he keep the promise he made on the traveler’s check three years ago to a woman he doesn’t even know?
Cast & Credits
Honestly I was getting a little bit tired of seeing Annie & George together. It was getting too cutsie for me and their relationship was so similar in both Love, Now & Love Around. Annie whines too much and has a screechy voice that makes your skin crawl sometimes. I hope this new drama series that will air in Mar 2015 will be a departure from their previous love connections.
Maybe it's a cultural thing. I don't know.
Anywho, I was initially impressed with his character He Bu Fan, a marketing genius who brings much-needed structure and discipline to his brother's fledgling business, which requires him to be a dick at times when he's at work. But then I realized as I watched more episodes that he's no different than any other male lead, treading familiar territory as an emotionally distant asshole with mommy issues. Needless to say, I was disappointed watching him treat his love interest like a child.
Pheobe Yuan's character Xu Man Man started off independent and strong-willed after recovering from a painful breakup with her fiance Shi Bo Hai (Ken Hsieh). Then in later episodes, it all went to shit. I don't know why the writers felt the need to dumb her character down so much.
Oh yeah, Bo Zheng Chen's character was that of some sort of deity or god but his hearing aid was visible. Just Sayin'.
