In present-day Taipei, Truly Lin (Joe Chen) is in her thirties and stuck in a dead-end job. She cannot help but recall her high school romance. The younger Lin (Vivian Sung), is a plain, clumsy girlwho spends her days goofing around with friends and fawning over the most popular boy in school, Ouyang (Dino Lee). An unfortunate incident leads Lin to become an errand girl for the school’s much- feared troublemaker Taiyu (Darren Wang). It doesn’t take long, however, before Lin sees Taiyu for who he really is: a kind, smart, young man. As their friendship evolves, Lin and Taiyu both realize that something more than friendship is budding between them.
Nostalgic and genuine, Our Times is a love letter to everyone who forever cherishes the bittersweet taste of first love. The ensemble cast delivers an outstanding performance that takes us back to the days when our dreams are still young. After a decade of producing popular TV dramas, Director Frankie Chen stuns us with an instant classic on love and coming-of-age wonder. —BX
