When they finally sobered up, they embarked on a mission to undo every crazy thing they did while they were drunk and prayed that their girl/boyfriend don't find out.
Cast & Credits
Now Rainie was awesome ! she seemed so very grown up and not like a kid anymore. Her crying scenes were really tear jearkers, and she really conveyed what the character meant. She is a really good actress. Joe Chang was really good as well but he did have a bit of an overacting bug, still you could really connect with him too. Tiffany Hsu was awful. Not only did it seem like the character was written poorly but her acting skills were the pits and she had no chemistry with Tom Price. (Plus she was annnnoying!!) The mother started out evil for like 1 episode but you will come to love her. You will see all kinds of reoccurring characters and if you watch it on Viki your friends will help pick those folks out!
Drunken to Love You has way less drama going on than Fated to Love you. However, with that said it seemed that Rainie cried just as much.lol. If you loved Fated to love you, if you keep in mind that this is a completely different drama you will like this too. I think both dramas had an innumerous amount of flashbacks and it seemed like there were new characters just coming out with no real purpose. Drunken had a lot of nice sub plots going on but none of them were as developed as the sub plots seemed to be in Fated.
This was a good watch it wasn't heavy with the drama, but it was funny and mainly cheery and had a really sweet ending. That you may not even see coming!
p.s loved the soundtrack.
What really worked for this drama was the peppy chemistry between Joseph Chang and Rainie Yang.
Also, side-note: Rainie totally rocked her short hair after having long tresses for years! Some good acting from Rainie : her crying scenes are absolutely wonderful.
Joseph's Song Jie Xiu really won my heart. Because he was not just another self-absorbed pretty-boy (I find Joseph to be more manly in appearance/vibe than most Taiwanese actors) . He was interesting and perceptive. He was actually aware of the feelings of the people around him. He fell in love with Lin Xiao Ru (female lead played by Rainie) FIRST (refreshing!) and pursued her kindly and patiently.
The side characters were also tons of fun. Samantha (Song Jie Xiu's mother), Xiao Ru's pregnant best friend, Jie Xu's assistant ... were all quite funny.
The story lines with the secondary romantic interests were unbelievable and unnecessary and the drama would have been better without it.
Not a perfect drama ... some of the plot faltered in the second half but still good, funny, sweet stuff.
