Gosh, how on earth has it been 17 years since It Started With a Kiss first came out? For many of us, the beloved Taiwanese drama starring a scatterbrained Ariel Lin and a broody Joe Cheng was what probably started us on our drama watching journey. I mean, who wasn’t rooting for Ariel’s Xiang Qin as the one to break through Joe’s cold and broody Zhi Shu?
Whilst this is probably a great reminder for me (and you!) to revisit the series once again, it looks like It Started With a Kiss director Chu Yuning who has gone on to direct many popular idol dramas since then, has also been feeling a wee bit nostalgic. Taking to social media to share an old group photo with “Zhi Shu” and “Xiang Qin” and their TV parents Chang Yung Cheng, Cyndi Chaw and Tang Tsung Sheng – kinda like a family portrait of sorts, he captioned: “When are we having dinner together again? The last time we were together was two years ago. I miss everyone so much and wish that happiness will be with you all always. I hope everyone in the world is safe, healthy, happy and blessed.”
He also include hashtags saying the photo was from 2 years ago in case people misunderstand and another about hoping to meet up again after the pandemic ends. Finally, he also added #ItStartedwithaKiss17YearAnniversary as the show celebrates 17 years since premiering on September 25, 2005.
