Love, Now. Ep 2 Recap 真愛趁現在 Zhen Ai Chen Xian Zai

I’m not just watching this drama because George Hu and his muscles make Michelangelo’s David look like an adolescent boy in comparison. But also because Annie Chen is killing it as a workaholic turned into this vulnerable young girl with dreams and aspirations.

We pick up at the beach where Yiru (Annie Chen) is laying out her life plans for Shide (George Hu). She tells him that she would meet her perfect man at the age of 28, they’d get married by thirty and she would have  babies at 32, one after another. She cries that her man would love her so much that even if they fight, they would quickly make up. He would make her breakfast and take her to work.

She cries bitterly that she has no time to do anything she has planned, she has no more time.  She has no time to date, to love, to marry or to have children. He tells her that she has the time, which she tells him not to lie to a woman who only has six months. He grabs and asks her to marry him.

When she gets back to her room, she convinces herself that he must have asked in the spur of the moment.  Yiru tries to tell herself that he really didn’t mean it. But we see Shide calling his lacky who had come with him to the Phillipines and he tells the lacky to transfer a large sum of money to his account that he has to have by tommorrow morning. Meanwhile Yiru dreams about having Shide as her groom.

Take a moment to appreciate him in all his glory, yeah, you and me both sister. Anyways, she thinks that she’s dreamt all of it. She goes out and thinks that she would never meet the boy again (hah). She goes to a resturant thinking that she should treat herself because its her birthday, only to find Shide there, serenading her. She’s embarrassed, which is not surprising because he’s kinda bad at the violin.

She’s at a loss what to say, because he wishes her a happy birthday. She wants to know how he knew, to which he replied that it’s a boyfriend’s duty to know his girlfriend’s birthday…. where can I find one just like him?  Anyways. He tells her that they’ve been dating for 8.5 hours, no wait, 8.25 hours. Which leaves her speechless. Shide tries to drag her off for a romantic date, to which she refuses bc she has a friend who works at the hotel that she has to meet. When she runs off and finds out that the friend isn’t there, Shide appears. He confirms that she really does have a friend and wasn’t lying to him. We find out they both hate liars to an extreme.

He asks her how she would punish those who lied to her, which she replies that execution is too nice, getting dismembered while being dragged in opposite directions by horses would be adequate, but if she ever got to them, they would wish they had never been born. At that moment, the people who lied to her about her cancer, her sister and her boss, both felt the power of her words (Her sister sneezes, which in Chinese implies that someone is talking bad about them while her boss falls off his bed.)

Shide literally drags her off (Sucessfully this time) to a day. He refuses to let go of her hand, and shushes her instead. He takes her to see paintings and when she walks a little ways away she sees a line of children, pointing signs saying “Marry Him”. I love Shide’s face in this shot, it was like a question and a challenge.

They go to the beach where he helps her launch a bottle rocket. In it, she discovers a star. It’s cute.

Then he launches another one and in is a shell fish box with a ring. He tells her that a shell fish box will only close when they fit each other. No shellfish in the world is similar to each other and they are like two shells of a shellfish, they belong together. He makes her call his name and proposes to her.

He takes her to the wedding place and asks her to love him with  no regrets . To let him stand with her, to fulfill all her wishes, to be a part of her future. Even if she isn’t sure of anything, she can be sure of his love.

This drama is literally a typical Taiwanese drama turned on it’s head. The meet cute, the dating basically sped up by twenty episodes, and we are seeing the ending first. I’m not complaining, it’s a great change of pace and very refreshing.

Tell me what you think!
