Director Chen Yu San’s second film, Fall In Love At First Kiss, does not stray too far from her first feature – the successful romantic flick, Our Times. She has also gotten Our Times actor Darren Wang to be the male lead in First Kiss.
Adapted from Japanese manga Mischievous Kiss (by Kaoru Tada), First Kiss tells of schoolgirl Yuan Xiang Qin (Lin Yun, of The Mermaid) falling hard for the new boy in school, Jiang Zhi Shu (Wang). Unfortunately, Zhi Shu is superior to Xiang Qin in every way – from his looks to his IQ. Undeterred, she decides to follow her feelings and confess her love for him.
In the production notes provided by RAM Entertainment, actress Lin shared that she admires her character’s courage. “Xiang Qin is really a unique girl, who goes the extra mile to win Zhi Shu’s heart. She doesn’t mind doing many crazy and silly things because she believes Zhi Shu is her true love,” the actress said.
Will Zhi Shu ultimately fall for Xiang Qin’s charms? If you have a secret crush, director Chen said you should “make sure to bring him to this movie to see how Xiang Qin braves all the challenges to woo the boy she likes”.
Fall In Love At First Kiss opens at GSC cinemas nationwide on Valentine’s Day.
