So, Joe is making a new drama with Ariel Lin called "Love or Bread", and it will be their third drama together after ISWAK and TKA. Apparently, Da S (Barbie Xu) was the lead female, but due to conflict in her schedule and the fact that she was told to put on weight, Xu backed out of the drama and let Ariel take over. She would rather have her body than her career. xDD So here's the synopsis:

善美不顾家人的反对,决心为爱走天涯, 辞去工作远走美国与男友结婚却惨遭背叛,没了钱也时失去感情,当善美失魂落魄偷偷回到台湾时,竟开始遇上frank开始衰神附身,更不接受的是竟然还得每天共同生活在破屋里。

All his life, the only phrase that describes Frank is "nothing ever succeeds". He hopes to become a billionaire, but is never trustworthy, and even underground banks come begging for him to pay his debts. Zhen Shan Mei, despite coming from an ordinary family, is more optimistic than anyone else. She has 3 jobs a day, and on top of feeding her parents, brother, sister-in-law and nephew, has to pay for her boyfriend's college in America.
Shan Mei, ignoring her family's disagreement, decides to leave for the sake of love. She resigns and goes to America to find her boyfriend and marry him, but finds out that he has been cheating on her. Without money and love, Shan Mei sneaks back to Taiwan in disgrace, meets Frank and is overtaken by stupidity. What she cannot accept is that they are actually living together in a rotten house!
One is lazy and irresponsible, the other is hard-working and kind, two completely different people have the same problem about money. Frank watches Shan Mei trying hard to live and save money, and slowly progresses from annoyance to admiration. Not good with words, he can only secretly help Shan Mei behind her back, and is even willing to leave for the sake of her happiness. At this moment, Shan Mei meet every girl's dream prince --- En Hao. Compared to Frank's obnoxious, deceitful, not-improving personality, En Hao is rich, gentle, and caring. He begins having feeling for Shan Mei, and just as Shan Mei was about to get together with En Hao, she is reminded of the little things that Frank did, and feels like she cannot leave him behind....

[sorry about the length ^.^;]

Joe Cheng --- Frank
Ariel Lin --- Shan Mei

A lot of fans were questioning this drama, one reason being the reverse personalities of this compared to ISWAK. Joe is the stupid and irresponsible one, while Ariel transforms into the smart and gentle one. It will be the total opposite of what we're use to seeing from Joe and Ariel, so let's see if they can create brand new character that we can relate to.

Filming began August 25, 2008, and is scheduled to take 6 months to complete. There will be 25 episodes.
