or the sequel to one of the most loved drama It Started with a Kiss.

If ISWAK failed to make me love the ARJOE tandem, this one endeared me to both Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng that I have to search for ARJOE clips in YOUTUBE. lol! The difference between ISWAK and TKA ? ZS and XQ are married. A young couple struggling through married life and establishing a career.

At first I did not want to watch TKA because I remembered being annoyed with Ariel Lin’s character. I skipped the first two episode as usual but have to go back when I found it to be nicer that ISWAK. At the time I got hooked to the show it is still being aired in Taiwan. And just like FTLY right now, those addicted to TKA have to wait for next week for new episodes.

Before I share my experiences in watching this drama, let me just quote the synopsis from DramaWiki :

The sequel of It Started With A Kiss begins with Xiang Qin and Zhi Shu’s wedding and honeymoon. Even after marriage, they experience problems and interferences within their marriage such as mistaken pregnancy, misunderstandings, and a run-in with a girl from Zhi Shu’s past. Xiang Qin and Zhi Shu switch to medical school to become nurse and doctor. During that time, Zhi Shu meets new rivals who wish to outdo him and Xiang Qin makes four new friends, and one of them likes her and wishes to replace Zhi Shu.

How will their lives turn out to be?

A group of subbers created a blog dedicated to this show – ISWAKFANSUBS. Through this drama, I learned about PPStreaming and Overstream. It was so fun reading the interactions in the chatboard of ISWAK though I am just a lurker. Every Sunday during the time that drama is being aired in Taiwan there will be someone from the chatboard, who understands Mandarin, who will be telling what is happening and translate the dialogues. They are doing it live! lol! And a week before the drama came to an end, those who frequent that chatroom where guessing as to what will happen since the preview was very intriguing. They have guess that XQ will get pregnant and will have a miscarriage. IT was really entertaining. Although none of the guesses were right. haha!

Nobody was able to predict the ending because the author of the manga died before finishing the story. So sad, right ? But the ending of TKA is not that good. I would still love the ending of ISWAK. In totality one thing I can say about TKA, its has a lot of kisses. Not that simple kiss ha, so I am surprised ABS will be airing it not on primetime. Maybe they will cut a lot of scenes. Especially the scenes at the start of Episode 2 when ZS and XQ are on a honeymoon. That’s one hot scene which I think was also cut in Taiwan.

In TKA, I saw FIGARO again. How is FIGARO ? He is AHRANG, the younger brother of MIKE HE in DEVIL BESIDE YOU. Figaro plays a guy who fall in love with XQ in TKA. Senior Nan in Hana Kimi also appeared in this show as one of XQ’s nursing friends. The drama shows the ups and downs of married life especially to a couple who have a bit of difference in traits and attitude. IT also shows how even the dumbest of the dumb can be able to attain something because of determination and love. All in all, TKA is a very beautiful comedy love story. The last part showed a lot of emotions.

As I said, this drama will be aired in ABS – CBN as a replacement for ROMANTIC PRINCESS. If Romantic Princess has two Fahrenheit members gracing the show, so is TKA. Jiro Wang and Aaron Yan are on TKA. If you are asking me if its worth watching ? My answer, if you enjoyed Hana Kimi and Romantic Princess then you will definitely enjoyed this one with twice the pleasure you feel with the HK and RP.

If you want to be ahead of the rest, you can get the completed subbed episode in MYSOJU. The ISWAKFANSUBs’ blog has also the complete episode but you have to look for their older post because right now their first three pages contains their current subbing project – Joe Cheng’s Honey Clover. While Intangible FS is also subbing this drama. You can either go to CRUNCHYROLL or VEOH if you want the episodes not split into parts.

    hi hazel,

    i don’t think there would be a part three. when the drama ended there are a lot of request for a sequel but the director was saying that they would be sticking with the manga and so that means that tka would be the last. let’s keep our fingers crossed that they would change their mind. though, they tried putting joe cheng and ariel lin together in LOVE or BREAD but I guess the story is really not that interesting that’s why it’s not so popular.

    I enjoyed watching ISWAK and TKA. I was able to buy a DVD of both and I’m really hoping you could do a sequel. But niot like Love or Bread that the story is not related to ISWAK and TKA. It would be match fun if the sequel is a continuation of the story of both series.

    I keep watching your story over and over again, and until now, I can’t keep laughing watching Jeanie and Michael.
