Down With Love is a Taiwan drama and I must confess that it’s among one of the best Taiwan dramas I have watched plus one of the best that has been produced so far. It features 2 wonderful leads Ella Chen and Jerry Yan, and some couple of really good actors.
The storyline is really nothing new – a boss falling in love with a nanny he hired. The amazing thing with the plot is the twist. I will try to summarize without giving spoilers lol. A boss who already has a girlfriend (the gf is a big time actress) falls in love with a nanny he hired. This same boss has a best friend, while the nanny has a sister.
Things got complicated because they were all trying to save their friendships instead of their relationships. Jealousy, how it feels to be lonely, how it feels to miss an opportunity and strive to have another chance were all expressed in this drama.
The acting was superb. Ella Chen can sure make 1000 different face expressions. Jerry Yan also proved to be one hell of a boyfriend. There was chemistry between Ella and Jerry, there was also chemistry between Ella and the guy with the supporting male role (Michael Zhang). The character Hui Fan was well-shown, she really looked pathetic.
The OST was really good also. It also included songs from S.H.E
I learnt a lot of suffs from DWL. First is been truthful to yourself (you are in love with someone, just get down to it and don’t beat around the bush), there some cases you have to let go and be happy for the other person (as in – Let a bird go, if it comes back to you, then it’s yours), you can’t find out the answer to something without giving it a try. Lastly, no matter the case, you’ve got to continue with life and be happy.
I sincerely hope you guys would enjoy Down With Love.
