Being back in Taiwan, albeit briefly, means that I am literally watching everything real time. Zhong Wu Yen is ending with a whimper this weekend, and all eyes on are Joe Cheng and Amber Kuo to see if their Channel X can turn things around for SETTV. The drama released its official poster, and I like it overall even if its not terribly original or sophisticated. It hits the spot would be my description. The tagline reads: To pursue the truth, what would you give up?
The drama also released a more substantive teaser trailer, which has Joe narrating against the refrain from Amazing Grace. To be honest, this drama feels like Black & White-lite. I don’t mean it in a negative way, only that the scope and scale of the production feels like a grittier and less sleek version of B&W, which was the biggest budget Taiwan drama in history and 100% pre-filmed.
Teaser Trailer #3:
I’m very excited about Joe’s return to TW-dramas, and everything I have seen about Amber is giving me super good vibes. She really has improved leaps and bounds since her debut performance in Woody Sambo with Nicholas Teo.
