Guys, I’ve got a new obsession and it’s Taiwanese drama Behind Your Smile!
I started watching it during my lunch breaks so it took about four days to complete the first episode. However, I got hooked as soon as I was through with the pilot and now I’m pretty sure I’m going to be caught up soon. I’ll write a proper review then.
This is the synopsis I read (from Viki):
A curse condemns a man to immortality. Zhao Yi Ting (Marcus Chang) is never able to reincarnate due to the curse, so he lives among mortal humans forever and toys with man’s greedy tendencies. Yi Ting’s life becomes cold and meaningless. But when he meets Lei Xin Yu (Eugenie Liu), a young woman whose wealthy family has fallen on hard times, everything changes. He is drawn to Xin Yu in a way that he has not felt in a long time. Will Yi Ting discover a new lease on life through Xin Yu? “Behind Your Smile” is a 2016-2017 Taiwanese drama series. It is based on the German legend of Faust.
But I have no idea where this came from or if they just changed the storyline or something. There’s nothing about immortality. It’s the story of a man who seeks revenge against the woman who wronged him… and tries to do that through her daughter (the “fallen on hard times” bit applies).
So it’s not the most unique story but I’m loving this man falling for her despite himself. There’s also an awful second lead female I want to strangle.
There’s also a love triangle involving two brothers but 0 second lead syndrome here. I’m totally all about the sexy, cold-hearted man who’s gotten close to her for sinister reasons.
Anyway, here’s the preview:
