Those of you who are familiar with both Korean and Taiwanese dramas will notice that Down With Love shares a similar thread to upcoming kdrama Personal Taste starring Lee Min-ho and Son Ye-jin. In both shows, one character thinks the other is not straight (lesbian/gay) because of a lie, and end up staying together and falling in love.

I found the premise of Jerry Yan’s new show – also starring Ella Chen and Michael Zhang – trite and even though I’ve seen and liked all three leads in different dramas, I don’t see them coming together. Most importantly, I don’t actually feel a romantic chemistry between Jerry Yan and Ella.

But watching the first episode made me remember why I liked Ella in Hana kimi; she’s really adorable. AND it’s Jerry Yan afterall. 😉

According to Sofres, The Myth premiered with a two-day average viewership of as high as 3.13%, and pulled in 4.13% for one episode, making it CCTV-8’s highest rated new year drama ever.
