If fate is telling you to love someone you despise, should you take a chance on them? What if they tuck their shirts into their jeans and analyze the plots of sci-fi movies? Yeah, I thought not.
Kiki is beloved by everyone at her university and she knows it. But there is one group she wants nothing to do with. Geeks. When Kiki witnesses a local lake suddenly dry up, she meet-cutes with the biggest geek of all, Lucky Wu. According to legend, the day the lake dries up, the man and woman who are witness to the occurrence are destined to be together forever. Although Kiki tries to ignore the superstition, she slowly begins to see Lucky for more than just the pimply, unkempt exterior that she has sworn to never date.
Filled with charm and even more wackiness, CAMPUS CONFIDENTIAL is a hilarious take on the opposites attract rom-com. Chen Yi-han is loveable as the stubborn and sassy Kiki, and the against-type Chen Bo-lin will win your heart as Lucky Wu in spite of the dopey gait and bed hair. Add in a jaw-dropping ending that rivals any TV drama’s and CAMPUS CONFIDENTIAL earns its A+ in Rom-Com 101. –James Paguyo
