Exciting romance drama with a bit of sci-fi
2 April 2019 | by mhkhungSee all my reviews

The story takes the single-mother raised Chan-Che back to the year before he was born in 1989, not only meeting his mother at the time, but also trying to find who his father is. An interesting take on time travel, from how he survived without an identity or much cash left in his wallet; to his iPhone (without service but a charger); to taking him to the family of the lead actress' family (it is a romance drama afterall), and her garment tailor dad that handmade all his suits but couldn't figure out the one worn by Chan with a modern fabric.

The story doesn't progress in a very fast pace (what's fast in Taiwan in 1989?) but keeps you glued watching episode after episode. The ending is a bit of a let-down as I think more time can be spend on the couple rather than the mother, but it does leave room for imagination. (There's also an alternative ending not available on netflix that you can find on the net elsewhere)

This drama is considered the career breakthru for lead actress Ivy Shao, who went on to become one of the most popular and beautiful Taiwanese actresses. I love the setting in 1989 which is just before the internet but modern enough to bring back memory of my own childhood, even I was not from Taiwan.
