He plays Lu Jin, an international economist who is harsh and critical and has made a hobby out of being a food connoisseur. She plays Gu Sheng Nan, a chef whose creativity comes from the heart. A chance encounter leads him to fall in love with her food, yet he despises her as a person.
To be honest, Chinese movies have been mostly misses for me these days regardless of who’s in it. In fact, Takeshi Kaneshiro’s See You Tomorrow earned horrible reviews. Nevertheless, this movie already has a leg up in my book because it’s literally taking the foodie thing seriously and playing up the food porn.
Even so, a better reason to watch this is because it is helmed by the team behind Soulmate except with a different Director and we know Zhou Dongyu won a Golden Horse Award for that last year. The movie also stars Sean Sun Yizhou (General and I), Ming Xi and Tony Yo-ning Yang.
