TL;DR – Omg can’t wait won’t wait.
Remember the 2015 Taiwanese hit romcom Our Times set in a 1990s Taiwan high school which took Singapore – and practically the whole of Asia – by storm?
And which led to the official soundtrack A Little Happiness or 小幸运 to clock over 160 million views?
Well, guess what?
We’re getting a sequel! Albeit with a twist.
Firstly, it’s been reported that it will not be named Our Times 2 (我的少女时代2) due to copyright issues.
Hit Taiwanese coming of age movie, #OurTimes confirms sequel, to start filming in summer! Director, scriptwriter and male lead, #DarrenWang to return. Female lead is still in casting stage and is highly competitive.#我的少女时代 #我的少女时代2 #王大陆 #wangdalu #ourtimes2 pic.twitter.com/YswlwZvYNX

Next, although some reports stating that male lead Darren Wang will be starring in it, both Darren and female lead Vivian Sung have confirmed that they won’t be.
The original film starred Vivian Sung as Lin Cheng-hsin, an ordinary schoolgirl, and Darren Wang as Hsu Tai-yu, the school’s notorious gang leader.
With a different title and cast (though original director Frankie Chen and screenwriter Tseng Yu Ting will still be involved in Part 2), we are not sure how the sequel will turn out.
But you know what? I can’t wait!
It’s said that the movie should be out next year so keep a lookout for it!
