Calling For Love

  • Title: Calling For Love/ 呼叫大明星 / Hu Jiao Da Ming Xing / Calling Big Star
  • Genre: Romance, comedy
  • Episodes: 14
  • Synopsis: Bo Ye is a reluctant big star who entered the entertainment industry to support his family. Now that he has earned enough money and his contract about to end, he happily starts planning for the next stage of his life. Around the same time, unfortunate financial downturn struck his agent, his sister and his best friend. Feeling obligated to help them he contemplates on renewing his contract. Totally depressed by this thought, he buys a lotto ticket hoping that he can win the big one and save him from this dilemma. As luck would have it, he wins the jackpot but loses the ticket before he can cash it. Now he is chasing after a taxi driver, De Xing, all over town in order to get it back.

After watching this entire series, I realize that it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be.  I took a chance and, although not disappointed with it, I wasn’t all that satisfied either.  I’m not really a big fan of Mike He, but I actually really liked him in this drama.  However, for Charlene Choi (the female lead), I can’t say the same.  Every time she was on screen, I just felt irritated.  I don’t know whether it was bad acting, horrible voice dubbing, or just her awkward character.

Plotwise, I like the beginning simply because it’s unique, funny, and cute, but then towards the middle and end of the series it goes back into cliche drama scenarios that aren’t too difficult to predict.  It had its good moments, but then it had its not so good moments as well.  In the end everything averaged out to, well, average.

My Rating: (2.5/5)
