[New Series]: I do?

When Easterly Showers falls on the Sunny West is coming to an end this Saturday on TVBJ Satelite in Australia, and I thought the new upcoming series that was going to replace it as going to be “Page of Treasures”, or perhaps maybe even “Sweetness in the Salt”. I was  shocked when I saw the trailer on TV to see “I Do?” XD I think  its a joint Taiwanese series or something because the voices seemed dubbed and the only recognisable TVB actor is Maggie Shiu lol I guess it will be kind of refreshing since the actors are unfamiliar to me (as I really don’t watch anything other than TVB lol)

Onto the series info!

Title: I do? 幸福的抉擇
Cast: Annie Liu, Lan Cheng-Lung, Michelle Lin, Shiu Mei Ki, Maggie, Yang Kuei-Mei, Sasa, Figaro Zeng, David Chen
Episodes: 20
Released: January 2009
Producer: Michael Mak Dong Kit
Scriptwriter: Ella Chen

Since HA YIK SUM SUMMER (Annie Liu), a wedding gown designer, met her first and true love, LEE HO CHIT (Lan Cheng-Lung), on that very night five years ago, she has been praying for him during dawn and dusk. Even though TAM YIU CHUNG JOAN (David Chen), the photographer is so concerned about her but SUMMER is wholeheartedly gets involved with her career only. Yet SUMMER could never expect that her job brings her the connection with CHIT again after years. The worst thing is CHIT dramatically runs away during his wedding ceremony, leaving his fiancee KAN MEI LEI (Michelle Lin) alone and pulls the bridesmaid SUMMER along with him. Both of them run away to somewhere far and get married.

CHIT’s mother FU MING CHU (Yang Kuei-Mei) and his step-mother YAM LING LING (Shiu Mei Ki, Maggie) both are clueless to this unmanageable son. After the passion has gone and the romance vanished, in addition to that, LEI has been seducing CHIT all the while. Their marriage only stays 100 days. When things seem to be settling down, both are astonished to find that there is an intangible bond between two broken hearts…

The statement “can’t live without him, can’t live with him” exactly described the young couple’s short-lived marriage. They overcame tremendous obstacles to be together. Yet, their love was not enough to save their relationship from the stress of actually living together and his ex-girlfriend’s sabotage. So they got a divorce. But, separation only made them even more miserable. With their families and friends’ intervention, the couple decided to give each other a second chance.

    i think this is because this series is a collaboration of taiwanese and tvb…that is why it is going to replace the When Easterly Showers falls on the Sunny West… :)hopefully this series will be good too..

    I actually started watching this because my local TVB rental store gave it to me. I think it’s just a Taiwan drama that TVB decided to air, but is not a joint TVB program. I think the fact that Maggie’s in it makes people think of TVB? I think I’m not a fan of watching shows where the voices are dubbed but i’ll keep watching because of maggie.

    OMG you too????!!! I keep seeing I do people everywhere (cast!). It’s on the Chinese-Channel right now haha, it’s actually quite good you know. But sometimes thing can be quite silly but it’s quite interesting how they make it so serious. When I said I kept seeing I do people I meant like the actress, she can actually speak Cantonese because I saw her on Scoop today! >.< Her Canto is pretty good, and her english. :] Too bad they dubbed her voice. She looks so different .. much older but she looks so pretty in the series. I love the themesong in the series but hate Can Mei Lei! xD You’ll find out who she is when you start watching haha. ^^

    I can’t watch this now .. too busy. Hope you enjoy it. I’m blabbering too much now, when I first saw your post title I was like omg. O.o?! haha.

  • Maggie says:

  • chibi says:

    I have a bad feeling about this series….

    It better not be some cheesy romance story like the 7th day. *runs away*

  • Vaneffle says:

    I’ve watched the first 3 episodes & I swear, the part where Summer is falling of the building is shown @ least 15 times… Also, half the time, they’re showing playbacks of what happened before.

  • 'Muff says:

    I have to say I’m not really looking forward to this one…

    All the unfamiliar actors and actresses, haha! And it’s a romance one… =\

  • Michelle says:

  • MikeACE says:

    this is the first non-tvb series that i’m watching…decided to give it a try cus my dad rented it not knowing that its not a tvb series and it did not disappoint…the lead actress annie liu is really cute by the way

  • KTVB says:

    I can’t stand watching the series. It is so cheezy and exaggerated to the extreme!! It’s so fake and watching all the characters became so annoying >< I do not recommend this series... There were two parts near the beginning which I thought was extremely romantic 1. When the two fell off the building 2. When Summer fell asleep on his bed But the constant flashback scenes just made me so sick of them. Argh I can't wait til this series ends this week! I want proper TVB series back!

  • chibi says:

    Horrible series. I hope it gets the lowest ratings for 2009…

    A total waste of time, extremely exaggerated, terrible script.

    Run away and save your souls! Do not bother with this series!

  • Do not a lot of cash to buy a car? Don’t worry, because that’s available to take the loans to resolve such problems. Hence get a short term loan to buy everything you require.

  • jujo says:

    so excited to watch this drama just because i found the hero is the same as in ‘easy fortune happy life’..but unfortunately i found many comments here said it is not worth to watch it…
