Forget you, Remember Love (2020) drama poster

No. of episodes: 38
Genre: Romance, Comedy

Native Title: 忘记你,记得爱情
Original network: Mango TV, Tencent Video

This drama is a remake/ upgraded version of the hit Taiwan idol drama, Prince Turn to Frog in 2005. The skeleton of the drama story is pretty similar but we have new characters which make perfect sense to add on.

The drama can feel really draggy and possibly cut down to 20 episodes instead of 38. You can speed watch after episode 15 until it gets back on track after 32.

Saving life

Shan Jun Hao (Garvey Jin) is the General Manager and biggest stakeholder of a hotel chain company, Senwell, he is cold and almost heartless when it comes to work and will fire any employee who falls behind immediately.

Senwell’s biggest project is to buy and revamp the entire Guanmei Fishing Village into a tourist destination with luxury hotels and attraction. He went to Guanmei to experience and observe the current scene but fell into the sea and was saved by Ye Qian Yu (Fair Xing).

Life in Guanmei Fishing Village

Qian Yu moved to the village after her mother’s death and pretty much grew up there with the care of her stepmother Chen Jin Zhi (Joyce Zhao) and young stepbrother. The family of three runs a provision shop and do odd jobs to save every penny to pay off her dad’s debt.
