Lin Li-shui

(Missing Person)


Come back soon.

I'm waiting for you

to sing together.

Have you

got up, lazy boy?)

(Just got off work. Goodnight!)


Get up.

Get up!


Why didn't the alarm go off?


Grandma, why didn't

you wake me up?


Grandma, did you

turn my alarm off?

No, and I tried to wake you up.

It's alright. Come

have breakfast!

You didn't come home till

four in the morning.

You slept for only few hours.

One needs six to

eight hours' sleep.

I can't afford that now!

You work so hard every day.

You're bound to

ruin your health!

Always come home so late.

You hadn't come

home when I got up!

Hey, sit down and

eat properly, okay?

What's her name? She's

coming for dinner tonight?

Yi-chun. Shen Yi-chun.

It's better to eat at home.

Food in the restaurants

isn't clean.

Home-made food is

clean and safe.

Right, listen to me.

You keep quiet when she is here.

Let me question her tonight.

Why don't you get married

after four, five years?


We're not good enough for her?

If you're going to talk nonsense,

I won't bring her home.

You're always like this

when I bring it up.

Hey, you!

Your lunch box!


Silly boy.


Ho Wen Shu-fang.


Ho Wen Shu-fang.

Hello. Good morning everyone!

I'm Yi-chun, the

stand-in DJ for today.

It's time for Love

Moring Roll-call!

What exactly is the end of love?


Some say marriage is

the tomb of love.

I wonder how you feel about it.

Let's take some calls.


Yeah, it's really the tomb.

I have to look after not only

my kids but parents-in-law.

I'm working like a slave.

And have to serve my

difficult mother-in-law.

Hui-chun, have you discussed

it with your husband?


Whenever we talk about his mom,

he gets angry.

His mom is always right.

But he has only one mother.

What can I do?

Okay, thanks for your call.

My boyfriend's grandma

nags all the time.

But actually, I envy you

as you've family with you.

Not everyone is as

lucky as you...


Let me play you a

nice song first.

We'll take more calls

after the break.

Good morning, everyone!

Good morning, sir!

Okay, let's shout the slogan.

Sincerity is everything!

Sincerity is everything!

Chu-shan Estate Agency!

Chu-shan Estate Agency!

Professional! Reliable!

Professional! Reliable!



There is room for negotiation.


Hi, Mr. Ho. Here we are!

Mr. and Mrs. Lin.

Let's go up.

105 square meters.

At the end of the

block, it's light.

It feels airy with

all these windows.

If we are done here,

let's go back to the office

and go over the details.


Please wait for me outside.

Let me turn the light off.




(Call Grandma)

Let's ask him.

Mr. Ho, shall we go?

Yes, sorry for keep you waiting.

Let's go back to the office.

It's 9.45 in the evening.

I'm Yi-chun.

Thank you for listening

to our program.

Wish you a very good evening.


Yi-chun, I'm sorry.

This is my daughter.


Don't run around in the

studio, understand?

Say hello to Auntie Yi-chun.

Auntie Yi-chun

Bei-bei, how old are you?

I'm three years old.


Three is like this.

Don't run around like this.

You'll disturb their work.

How come you have time

to see me tonight?

Haven't seen you for ages!

Thought you might have

eloped with someone!

Oh, well. Good to

know you're worried.


Grandma has cooked a lot.

Let's eat at home, alright?



Does Grandma remember

my name or not?

Yes, she does.

She definitely does!

Does she remember yours?

Of course she remembers mine!


Let me take you

to a place first.

What place?


You're selling it?

Miss. Shen.

A luxurious four-bedroom

family apartment.

Brand new steel and

concrete structure.

Windows on all walls.

You've got the most beautiful

view of Taipei city!

Even playing a song?!

My latest service.

Viewing the property

while dancing!

Here is the living room.


I'm going to put an

enormous sofa... here.

Your music doesn't go

well with your dance!


Come see this room.

This one...

It's the master bedroom.

It comes with a brand

new double bed.

Come. Come.

Don't jump into someone's bed!

- So soft.

- What?

It'll get dirty.

Let's get down.

Okay, let's get down.

I'm getting down...

You're acting so weird today.


You've got any condom with you?

We'll get married anyway.

If you get pregnant,

we'll have a child!

Who wants to have

a child with you?

Or who do you want

have children with?


Haven't we talked about

it so many times?

I'll be angry if

you do it again.

This property...

I already paid the deposit.

You did?

How much did you pay?

I mortgaged Grandma's house

and paid the deposit.

The rest is enough for the

first year's payment.

- Within a year...

- Did you

tell Grandma about it?

Trust me, the location is good.

In two years, the price

is bound to soar.

I can make at least five

million when I sell it.

And then we can get married

and have children...

But it's all in the future...

We won't be able buy it

when the price soars up.

No, it's not the problem.

What if Grandma

thinks it's my idea?

She won't think it's your idea.

How do you know?


If you insist on buying,

you move in with Grandma.

I'll live in my own place.

I marry you because I

want to live with you.

What do you mean me

living with Grandma?

And you still live

in your place?


Marriage isn't in my plan.

How many times have

we talked about it?

Why don't you want

to get married?

Why in a hurry?

We've been together

for five years.

Five years!

What else do we need?

- What is not there?

- I've told you that

marriage isn't in my plan!

I'm exhausted.

I haven't slept

for twenty-four hours.

Do we have to talk

about it today?

I'm sorry.

Grandma, Yi-chun is here!

Grandma has cooked

a lot of food.

Need any help to re-heat it?

Yeah, thanks.



You're going out?

Shui's come back.

I'm going to hers for karaoke.

Auntie Shui's back?

It's late to meet up!

Grandma, I need to talk

to you about something.

You're still angry at me?

The pig trotter

was really yummy.

I ate it all.

Don't stay out too late!


Who are you talking to?



She seems a bit angry at me...

Never mind, let's

eat on our own.

(Ho Wen Shu-fang Day 1)


Come on, everyone!

Shui's back!


Grandma, don't turn my

alarm off again, okay?!

You're back after seven days!

It's truly god's blessing.

I told you firecrackers worked!

Did you eat anything?

- See?

- We should have done it earlier!

We really should!

Good we let off firecrackers.

Safety is everything.

You made us so worried.

Uncle Kun.

Did you see my grandma?


Ah, she...

Now she...
