YesAsia Editorial Description
Debt collector Cheng (Roy Chiu) looks like a thug but he's actually a big softie at heart. One day while he's out collecting debt, he falls head over heels for Hao Ting (Ann Hsu), the daughter of a debtor. He awkwardly draws up a contract with her to offset debt with dates. Through these dates, Hao Ting gradually opens up to the warm-hearted Cheng. For the sake of their future, Cheng decides to leave the gangster life behind, but circumstances beyond their control work to separate them.

Before watching Yin Chen Hao's blockbuster romance Man in Love, I was rather surprised about its box office success. I did not love the original Korean film from which it was adapted, and was skeptical of how the remake managed to enter Taiwan's top ten domestic films of all time. After I watched it, I completely understood why it's such a crowd-pleasing hit.
On paper, the Taiwan remake of Man in Love tells just about the same story as the Korean film. Ah Cheng (Roy Chiu) is a street gangster who collects debt for a living. Though he's quick to yell and fight, he has a kind heart, and looks out for struggling debtors in his own way. He coerces bank clerk Hao Ting (Tiffany Ann Hsu) to take on the debt of her critically ill father, and then offers to lessen her debt in exchange for dates. Smitten with Hao Ting, Ah Cheng pursues her with a brutishly direct yet boyishly clumsy sincerity that gradually wins her over.
Music video director Yin Chen Hao brings a dynamic pace and visual language to his feature debut that eschews the melodramatic tone of the original Korean film. The story is successfully localized to a Taiwanese setting with colorful dialect, dry humor and the depiction of Ah Cheng's taike-type thug who plies the local temple and street stalls. Aided greatly by Roy Chiu's devilishly charming screen presence, the character of Ah Cheng convinces as a gruff and unpredictable manchild who is hopelessly in love.
Though Hwang Jung Min and Han Hye Jin both gave fine performances in the Korean version of Man in Love, I wasn't particularly moved by their pairing or the overt tear-jerking of the film. The Taiwanese version's subtler emotions and the strong chemistry between Chiu and Hsu elevate the star-crossed romance into a more natural love story (that came true in real life!).
