Let’s take a breath of refreshing air! In Cheung Ho-lam’s SOD-032, a Japanese manga-like puppy love romance, a nerdy boy is caught between his crush at school and the female A.I. robot he creates. When the Sun Goes Down by Cheng Kui-sum and Wong Chun-lung follows a pair of ex-lovers wandering around the campus at sunset. Just when we are enjoying the refreshing mood, John Hsu blows up the Taiwanese refreshing style in his The Great Escape from Cafe City (Taiwan), once and for all.
