The road you need to take in life can sometimes be paved with chocolate. Fang Jia Hua (Vanness Wu) is expected to go into his family’s business, which doesn't interest him at all. His dream is to pursue his love of chocolate and open his own business making and selling gourmet chocolates. When his father doesn't understand his passion for chocolate, he decides to leave home so that he can fulfill his sweet dream. In his efforts to open his own business, he keeps running into Hong Xi En (Joanne Tseng) and her family. Xi En is an industrious woman who does all manner of odd jobs, such as delivering newspapers and fast food to driving cabs and painting fences, to help support her family and her special-needs brother. When Xi En eventually gets a job working for Jia Hua, she must pretend to be a man. How long can she hide her true identity? “Ti Amo Chocolate,” which translates to “I love chocolate” in Italian, is a 2012 Taiwanese drama series.
I have a weakness for crossdressing dramas, but that part only lasts a few episodes. The show randomly lost characters and expected us not to notice, while choosing to spend more time focusing on the second leads and their emotional disfunction. The last straw for me was the revival of the brain-dead coma patient. No matter how dire you make things, there's no impact when I know you won't follow through.
