posticon TW-Drama: 狂愛龍捲風 Love Storm


classfloat-rightImageA new idol drama produced by the same people who produced Meteor Garden 1 & 2. Vic Zhou, Ken Chu (of F4) and Vivian Hsu (she was more known for her nude photos than her acting) are the leads in this drama.

KSCI/LA18 has announced the new show which will air on September 12 (Monday) at noon. This show follows Sunshine on the Back of the Mountain.

The official website for Love Storm is:

I don't think KSCI will air it with English subtitles.

Set your VCR from noon to 1:30pm, Mondays to Fridays, on Ch. 18 (KSCI/LA18).

Just a warning. I've heard that the acting in this one is terrible, so don't expect too much from this drama. But these guys are not bad to look at, if you ignore the poor script and bad acting.

Re: TW-Drama: 狂愛龍捲風 Love Storm


I fastforwarded through 5 episodes last night. This show is as bad as they say. Bad directing, bad acting and bad script. The plot is unique and with a different set of actors, they may be able to pull it off. I do give high marks to the set designer of this show. He or she has tremendous talent!

Vic Chou has bad hair in this show. He slouches through the entire show. It's like he doesn't know where his arms should hang. He is still cute though. Becaue this actor doesn't have much talent in the acting department, so when given a bad script with inadequate directing, he comes off like an babbling idiot. But the Vivien Hsu has most of the screen time, so even if I want to see Vic Chou, he is not on the show that much compare to Ken Chu.

I don't know how much plastic surgery Vivien Hsu has done on her face, but she looks different from when she first started in the show business. She is still so young, but she's been around for at least 10 years. I'm guessing she must have started in the show business when she was in her early teens. The thing is that she got famous doing nude layouts. She is more famous for her nudity than her acting. She is reported to be dating one of the F4 member (not Ken Chu nor Vic Zhou). There must be laws against underaged nudity. But I must give her credit for making it this far--starring in an idol drama.

The OST is not too bad, but it's not ringing in my ears like Meteor Garden's or My Secret Garden's title songs. The beginning song is written and sung by Vivien Hsu. Then ending song is sung by Vic Chou. Perhaps they should stick to singing and song writing.

I'm not going to waste my time with this show unless someone requires clarification on a certain episode. I will keep the episodes from every week until that Saturday. Saturday night, I'll delete all 5 episodes if no one asks about them.

I always thought Vic Zhou has a bad posture. I noticed him slouch in MG & Mars too.classblockquotemerela wrote:

Interesting. I didn't know Vivien Hsu had surgery. Then again I never saw her before this year. I think it's Vanness Wu she was/is linked with.

Yes I have a copy of the drama for almost a year now and never got past chapter 3. It was not that interesting for me. Even if I love Vic...MG still rules followed by Mars.

This show is really not worth your time. Spend your time wisely watching other interesting dramas.

News item about Vic Chou:

http://news.chinatimes.com/Chinatimes/newslist/newslist-content/0,3546,110511+112005091900253,00.html

Apparently, he got into another car accident again. This time, he got rear-ended as he picked up Barbie Hsu from her house on Chinese Moon Festival Day. The press is speculating perhaps it is due to all the medications Vic took for his Depression. In any case, he denied everything and said that he can't help it if someone rear-ends him. But the news this time is that Barbie Hsu was in his car when the accident happened. Remember Vic was in another accident a couple of months back (he totalled an expensive Audi) and Barbie showed up soon after the accident to console Vic. Anyways, it looks like they are dating for real.

All of the actors/actress acting are so contrived, especially Vivien Hsu. Actually, she is cute. However, when I saw her acting and speaking like little girl, I have goose bumps.

Welcome yuwensu! I agree with you totally about the terrible acting. The only redeeming quality to this show is set decorating and its OST. Vivien Hsu has some talent in song writing.
