Cast & Credits
My reason for watching this movie was simply because I was very bored and YT commenters seemed to enjoy it very much.
The movie Love is a romantic comedy and i can reassure you that it is very well heartfelt. You feel the essence of each character even though there are many and I was surprised at the quality of the cast. It's no joke. A lot of the actors in this movie are famous in Taiwan. Mark Chao (Black and White), Ivy Chen (Skip beat, Black and White) and Ethan juan (Fated to love you) are pretty big names! So it's a hot cast ;) Each character has their own romantic story and although it is a comedy, there are moments of sadness which are reflected in the soothing ost "Fang Qing Dian" which CANNOT fail to capture the tone of the film. In addition to this the opening song by Hebe ???: LOVE really captured my attention... i felt that it was perfect for the storyline of the movie.
Overall "LOVE" is a light hearted comedy with a slight serious tone, cleverly interwoven into the lives of the characters who somehow are connected to each other. This a movie that is well worth your time and is seriously underrated!
