Momo Love Cast (Jiaying, Cynthia, Sphinx, Calvin, Gabe, Jing, Godfrey) on well-known Taiwanese variety show ‘Kang Xi Lai Le’ airred on 14 Oct. The topic wasn’t really related to the show. It’s on daughter’s boyfriends’ meeting mothers. Which is mum’s favourite type?
Some opening pictures. Judges include 10 mothers with daughters of marriageable age. Guests Li Jiaying and Cynthia Wang.
Who is Prince Charming?
Guys, not wearing socks does leave a bad impression for your gf’s mum.
Xiao S: Hips are a little over-wide.
Jiaying/Cynthia: Chest muscles are fine but mid-area looks meaty.
Sphinx Ding! (Love his specs)
Mum’s welfare time! Testing firmness of his mid-region and calf.
Choice of gift: skincare products.
Sphinx prepared wrinkles-remover for Xiao S too! (lol.) Reason: Xiao S is also a mummy. Are skincare products too sensitive and suggestive of age?
Do you like Sphinx more with or without specs? (still like his specs).
Who is next up?
Xiao S: Hips too lean.
Comparing Sphinx and his hips. So white pants does cause visual expansion.
JY: steep shoulders.
Fans of Fahrenheit, did you get this? Calvin Chen Yiru! With a 100% sunshine boy smile :D He’s my fav in Fahrenheit yet I didn’t get this right.
Mum Jinhua has heard of Calvin and Fahrenheit because her daughter likes Wu Chun and Jiro Wang, but not heard of Sphinx. Ouch.
Testing Calvin’s arms and Calvin promoting Fahrenheit travel photographs collection book.
What’s making Xiao S laugh so hard? Mum Liang Fuzhi!
Kelvin(male host): There’s a cute doll on Yang Fuzhi’s shirt. A glittering doll.
S: Did you sew it yourself?
Liang: No, it’s inbuilt.
Kelvin: It’s present originally?
Liang: It’s there originally.
S: Is it from the marketplace too?
Liang: It’s from the store department at the marketplace.
Who comes in stylist boots, battered jeans and sets competitive Sphinx off into a half-strip mode with his deep-V sweater?
Gabe Lan! And his gift of flowers come with a photograph of him with his height, weight, number and address!
Mum likes him but not deep-V. Not formal enough.
Mum doesn’t want to see but wants to feel Gabe’s chest muscles!
Comparing two top Taiwanese male model’s built.
Who is this honest looking boy?
It’s Jing or Huang Jinglun. But where to touch such a skinny guy? Jing suggests… his throat? (he’s a singer) lol
Apparently he’s one BIG dreamer in this drama. He got to kiss Jiaying, pretty model Larisa and even Calvin Chen! While the others get none. (LOL silly boy gets all the good deal) In real life he’s an innocent boy, 26 and never been in a relationship. Present for mummy – pineapple tarts!
Who is this? Unshaved stubbers and too tall for the screen…
It’s Godfrey Kao! (My fav! and apparently Xiao S’s too lol) Welcomed with a big hug and swinging Dee in a typical drama’s romantic swing-about (i envy!)
Lucky mummy Jinhua gets a swing from two macho guys! Oh my… (i want!)
Godfrey brings heels for mum and Xiao S. Helps Dee put it on (so sweet gentleman), fits perfectly. Godfrey has good taste. Apparently he buys and helps his mum wear shoes when she’s shopping for shoes outside.
Dee shocks everyone with the way she says thanks. (lol!)
Pretending to fall down so that Godfrey can help her up but interrupted by nosy matchmaker’s(Chen Handian) aid.
Faking another sprain so Godfrey can carry her to ‘interview Jing’. Nosy Mr Matchmaker is not learning from lesson.
Nice Godfrey carries her over. Dee ends up telling Jing to go away and concluded with a 2 questions interview lol.
Sphinx refused to but ended up still comparing hip size with Godfrey on request.
Cute Sphinx shrugging after being commented on his white pants and hips size again.
Kevin: Do you think mothers disapprove most of not buttoning, not wearing socks or not shaving?
JY: It should be a wide hip.
Apparently Jiaying and Jing are a couple in the show and Sphinx shows extra care towards her but she’s more taken in by Godfrey.
Godfrey (on hosts request): Zhang Jinhua, my heart hurts for you. (over judging mothers sitting on cushionless benches)
Jinhua: It’s alright, I’m more fleshy.
Kelvin: Who will you choose to hug?
Gaby: Be more reluctant won’t you?
Cynthia: We are a couple in the drama. I’m not so familiar with the rest.
Kelvin/Dee: Who did you wish to be paired up with when you first got the script?
Sphinx looks smug.
Dee: But he has a wide hip.
Cynthia: I will ban him from wearing white pants.
Kelvin(to Sphinx): So you will wear fit clothing here so we’ll apologize to you next time?
Sphinx: I will wear leggings here. (LOL! Sphinx like a kid.)
(I think Cynthia will make a smart couple with Sphinx)
Kelvin: How do you wish your first kiss to happen?
Jing: On a lightning night. Drenched in the rain.
Kelvin: What if Jinhua pushes you to hit the wall. ‘Bang!’ After which she kisses you? On a lightning night.
Jing: Can I call the police first?
That’s too rough. No, I tell her…
Dee: Jinhua, calm down.
Jing: Please calm down Jinhua. Please be gentler on me.
For the grand finale, why are both roles standing?
Privilege time! Mums, hug whomever you wish to most!
Still have no idea whether I’ll be watching Momo Love despite it having many people I like such as Cynthia, Godfrey, Calvin, Sphinx, Gaby, Jing… but I’m not really a fan of Cyndi and Jiro the main leads! How ironic…
This story is based on a manga named Momo Love. Essentially romance based. Jiro and Calvin are two guys fighting over a girl named Taohua (Cyndi) who has five brothers taking care of her, namely portrayed by Ken Zhu, Gaby, Sphinx, Godfrey, Jing in sequence of age.
