Somewhat late to the sport, I’ve solely lately completed watching Taiwanese time-travel romance drama Sometime or One Day regardless of its premiere on CTV final November. The primary two episodes could also be slow-paced however belief me, it will get higher and higher!

Starring Alice Ko Chia-yen as 27-year-old Huang Yu-hsuan and Greg Hsu Kuang-han as her late boyfriend Wang Chuan-sheng, the drama begins with Huang receiving a mysterious cassette tape after attending Wang’s funeral. Whereas listening to the tape (“Final Dance” by Taiwanese singer Wu Bai), Huang travels again in time and finds herself trapped within the physique of 17-year-old Chen Yun-ru, who appears to be like precisely like her. She additionally meets Li Tzu-wei, a teenage man who appears to be like precisely like Wang Chuan-sheng. From right here, the story spirals right into a mind-boggling fantasy of thriller, homicide, friendship, love and atonement.
Briefly, Sometime or One Day appears like a mixture of Makoto Shinkai’s Your Identify and Jay Chou’s The Secret (each Alice and Greg occur to have participated in Jay Chou’s music movies), however with extra in-depth and relatable characters, and extra nostalgia thrown in.
I’d higher cease at this level as a result of freely giving its intricate plot can be blasphemous. Nonetheless, it doesn’t harm to lure you into the journey by exhibiting you what Huang wears all through! Huang’s trend type displays her dynamic and outspoken character, which utterly contrasts with that of her “counterpart” Chen Yun-ru. Be taught a couple of type tips from Huang if you wish to be common and confident like her!
I do know I’ve been choosing out blouses, skirts and blazers as necessities for each workplace drama, however Huang’s blouses are a bit totally different from, say, Secretary Kim’s. Maybe attributable to the truth that she works in an promoting firm, Huang typically wears blouses with a twist, reminiscent of an uneven lower or print, distinction paneling, extensive lapels, puff sleeves or a high-low hem.
Huang’s blazers are well-structured, light-weight and sometimes cropped. I particularly love her white moto, which is cropped and belted on the waist, and appears like a cropped model of the trusty trench. I additionally adore her cropped denim and fake suede jackets.
Asymmetrical skirts are simple to rock – merely tuck in a tee and let the skirt’s stepped hem communicate for itself. Huang’s picks kick it up a notch with a frayed hem, paperbag waist or allover plaid.
Checks convey an easy contact of prim, breaking the monotony of a monochrome outfit. Huang’s checked numbers are available grey, almond and pine inexperienced, that are failsafe choices for the workplace.
What number of totally different earrings did Huang don? I misplaced depend, however I keep in mind a lot of them had been nature-inspired, coming in both natural shapes or pure supplies like wooden and mother-of-pearl.
The Mobius ring performs an necessary position within the drama. Symbolizing infinity, it’s the proper design for couple rings. Huang and Wang’s Mobius engagement rings are inscribed with a quote from French author Simone de Beauvoir:
“Provided that you requested to see me
Our assembly can be significant to me”
