Love Cuisine, Behind the Scenes, Episode 2

This is the English translations for the Behind the Scenes of Love Cuisine, Episode 2 (料理高校生 – 第2集 BTS). We’d liked to give a head’s up and say that there are some parts of the BTS (behind the scenes) that we did struggle to hear and translate and we’ve made notes stating our inability to translate the part. Our primary language is not Mandarin-Chinese and we translate by the Chinese subtitles that are supplied in the videos.

Please do enjoy our Love Cuisine, Episode 2: Behind the Scenes translations accompanied by images!

Kong Meng Zhe starts to stand firm and strengthen his hold on the fishing rod.

KONG MENG ZHE

The fish on the hook springs towards the group of students and Han Jie.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

A beautiful parabolic rod was used to catch fish.

Lego Li as Han Jie takes hold of the line and bring in the fish to look at their catch. Lego Li seems to feel that his foot has stepped a bit too far out of the thin concentrate ground he stands on.

HAN JIE

Whoa, whoa, whoa!

Lego Li as Han Jie looks down for a moment to check he is still on stable ground. He is. He places a hand to his chest in relief. He looks at the fish he caught along with the students.

FEMALE STUDENT

We’ve caught a fish.

MALE STUDENT

There’s really a fish!

HAN JIE

It’s a damselfish.

FISHNG PORT Allison Lin and actors of Si Ping Vocational School students

Filming bustling students fishing with Fang Xiao Rou.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

An extremely happy shot.

The framing of the shot loosens to reveal the students standing before crew members with reflective boards and facing the port path.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

In reality… it’s more like staff-fishing.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Teacher Xiao Rou on the verge of falling into the ocean again!!

Fang Xiao Rou loses the battle and is pulled along the port.

FANG XIAO ROU

Ouch! It hurts. Ouch!

The sound of splashing water is heard.

FISHING PORT IN WATERS Allison Lin and Lego Li

Filming Fang Xiao Rou in the water, flapping about, in distress. Han Jie in the water, swimming to rescue her. Around them are lifesaving instructors.

HAN JIE

Fang Xiao Rou! Relax.

Han Jie continues to swim towards Fang Xiao Rou. It takes him time to get to her. Finally reaching her, he grabs her hand before supporting her from behind.

HAN JIE

Give me your hand. Don’t worry!

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Handsome hero rescuing the beauty.

DIRECTOR off-screen

Okay, okay.

As soon as the director says the shot is good, Lego Li releases Allison Lin and goes about his own way. With the sudden loss of support from Lego Li, Allison Lin’s head drops below the water’s surface and briefly struggles to find her footing. The lifesaving instructors move in on the scene and gives both Lego Li and Allison Lin floating devices.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Xiao Rou immediately was let go of.

VOICE off-screen

Lego! (You can’t be like that…)

FISH PORT ON LAND Allison Lin and Lego Li

Allison Lin is sitting in her chair after the scene in the water. She’s fixing her hair and smiling.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Beautiful. Beautiful.

Cuts to Lego Li. He’s sipping his drink and concerned about his hair.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

First time letting the bangs down in Love Cuisine.

LEGO LI

Is my hairstyle still okay?

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Adorable. Adorable. Adorable.

On the side of the camera and out of shot, the crew member holding the umbrella to shield Lego Li directs Lego Li the parts that need fixing.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Fix it here. Here. Fix it here.

Lego Li checks his hair using the camera lens.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Teacher Han’s lost his imposing manner.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Using the camera lens as the mirror concept.

Back to Allison Lin sitting in her chair with the interviewer.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Allison Lin’s thought on falling into the water.

ALLISON LIN

This time I took in a few mouthfuls of ocean water. This taste this time… it’s different between the two sides of the ocean. This side’s taste is relatively stronger.

INTERVIEWER

Is it salty?

ALLISON LIN

It’s really salty.

Allison Lin suddenly turns to look at something on her left.

VOICE off-screen

Very greasy.

(NB: an on-screen caption someone off screen apparently having spoken. We’re unsure who the speaker was for this… possibly Lego Li since he was the other person in the water with Allison Lin.)

ALLISON LIN

It’s got a greasy feel—that’s right. For the sake of health, people can’t have food that is too greasy.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

What Teacher Fang says you must listen to.

ALLISON LIN

You can’t eat food that’s too greasy. Today, I’ve broken the rule and had something a bit more greasy.

INTERVIEWER

When Lego towed you and then let go, what were your thoughts?

ON-SCREEN TEXT

There seems to be a bit of fear on her.

ALLISON LIN

Because… actually… When he had to grab me, I had to act unconscious so I had to shut my eyes. When I shut my eyes, I can’t swim. With my eyes shut, he took me to some other place. I didn’t know where he had to take me. I also didn’t know what was going on around me, so I was actually a little scared. When they called ‘cut’, that is… when I was let go of, that’s when I extended my feet. At that point, I discovered I couldn’t tread, for a split second, I was a little scared.

Cut to Lego Li.

LEGO LI

I was a little off back there, causing two lives to disappear.

INTERVIEWER

You didn’t just let go of her immediately?

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Listen to how Teacher Han explains himself.

LEGO LI

No. It’s because ‘cut’ was called and because Allison wasn’t able to swim at all. So, when they called cut, I used all my strength to direct her towards the direction of the lifesaving coach. I used my last ounce of strength to push her towards that side so I could start saving myself…

Cut shot to showing the scene where Lego Li as Han Jie is towing the unconscious Allison Lin as Fang Xiao Rou. Lego Li’s head goes underwater as Allison Lin opens back her eyes and begins swimming and staying afloat with the help of Lego Li pushing her towards the lifesaving instructor with floating devices. As Lego Li explains, he is drinking water as he leads Allison Lin towards the lifesaving instructors.

LEGO LI (CONT’D)

…because I was already out of strength. Like the first two shots, I wanted to continue to save Allison, but in order to save her, I was underneath taking in water the whole time. I was taking in water the whole time.

Footage returns back to Lego Li talking to the camera.

LEGO LI (CONT’D)

I originally thought I’d feel quite relaxed. Then after getting back up here, I feel so tired. Come to think of it, the last time I felt more or less relaxed was… seven years ago. I think I’m getting old. It feels like I’m old. Time seems to have affected my strength.

(NB: Lego Li’s literal speech include an idiom: “My physical strength seems to have a bit of— time is unforgiving to people / time and tide waits for no man“).

FISHING PORT IN WATERS Lego Li and Allison Lin

Filming the rescue of Fang Xiao Rou again: Han Jie towing Fang Xiao Rou along in the water.

DIRECTOR

One more try.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Will Xiao Rou be pushed away again?

DIRECTOR

Okay!

Filming of the shot ends. Lego Li pushes Allison Lin forward.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Lego indeed did push her forward!!

Lego Li disappears underwater for a brief moment before coming back up. Allison Lin disappears underwater for a bit before coming back up.

VOICE off-screen

You need to support her.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Alarmingly dangerous split second!!!

VOICE off-screen

She’s not able to tread! Lego, she can’t tread!

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Scared to death by this shoot at the shoreline.

Voice distressingly repeats over and over that Allison Lin isn’t able to tread. A lifesaving instructor is closing in onto Allison Lin’s position and a floating device is pushed in front of her. Allison Lin doesn’t notice it as she gets hair out of her eyes. Lego Li moves in towards Allison Lin and appears to provide her a helping hand to have her finally notice the floating device in front of her. Allison Lin grabs hold of it and rests on it.

FISHING PORT ON LAND Allison Lin and Lego Li

Lego Li has a towel over his head and sitting on the ground.

LEGO LI

(laughs at himself)

My brain was really lacking oxygen back there. I’m so tired…

Camera pans to Allison Lin who also has a towel over her head, sitting on a chair facing away from us. She speaks from behind the backrest of her chair.

ALLISON LIN

That’s right. I was very scared. Lego even swam till such a point. Back there, my mind went blank.

LEGO LI

(to Allison Lin)

I mean it. I was worried about you.

Lego Li raises his right hand, swearing in oath.

LEGO LI (CONT’D)

(to Allison Lin)

I mean it. I mean it.

ALLISON LIN off-screen

I know.

LEGO LI

Yeah… I… I—

Lego Li stops mid-sentence as he let’s Allison Lin speak.

ALLISON LIN

I do.

Lego Li gives a nod to Allison Lin’s words then resumes from where he left off.

LEGO LI

I supported you above me. Whilst I was under, I drank two, even three mouthfuls of ocean water. After that, I choked; and that’s when I quickly pushed you aside, towards the coach like this.

ALLISON LIN

(laughing really hard)

I had a feeling Lego Li had pushed me off far away, but he pushed me to a place where I wasn’t able to tread.

Allison Lin bends over the arm rest of her chair in silent laughter before she comes back to the camera.

ALLISON LIN (CONT’D)

Yes…

Lego Li is looking slightly embarrassed as he tries to, again, explain his actions. He demonstrates with his hands.

LEGO LI

I had pushed you towards where I had viewed as the safest place. Pushing you right over before I quickly surfaced.

ALLISON LIN

My eyes were closed at the time when I was pushed. So, after I was pushed I opened my eyes. I felt myself flying.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Don’t leave. Please continue to stick around and watch the next segment of the show.

Insane Radish Squatting Chapter

STUDENTS

Black… white… blue

VOICE off-screen

You’re the white team.

STUDENTS

Silver?!

STUDENTS

Blue… Purple…

The noisiness of the discussion gets to Lego Li. He shakes his head and folds his arms before he blocks his ears with both of his hands, screaming a silent scream. He turns away from the noise and has his hands together in front of his face, rubbing them back and forth in a pleading gesture.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Teacher Han is about to lose it.

DIRECTOR

What about you all?

STUDENTS

ON-SCREEN TEXT

This is how you play 20 rounds of Insane Radish Squat.

Footage of the rounds speed up and come back to normal speed to the part of the episode where Fang Xiao Rou asks why Han Jie isn’t playing.

HAN JIE

It’s too simple. I don’t want to. Unless… we increase the level of difficulty of Insane Radish Squat. Are you game?

FANG XIAO ROU off-screen

You want to play? I’ll play. I’m not afraid.

Han Jie challengingly stares at Fang Xiao Rou and takes his jacket off to show he’s game.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

(referring to Han Jie’s eyes)

Super fierce.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

(referring to Han Jie’s actions)

Brother, I’m indeed serious about this!!

The director goes to Lego Li who’s still in character and directs him to move to a spot a few steps back. The director directs Allison Lin to come a few steps forward to stand opposite Lego Li. Both Lego Li and Allison Lin resumes acting.

FANG XIAO ROU

I’m the Radish Queen!

Han Jie takes a challenging step towards Fang Xiao Rou.

HAN JIE

Oh!

Fang Xiao Rou folds her arms with a deathly glare.

I’m the Radish Queen.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

(referring to Fang Xiao Rou’s actions)

Emphasing once more.

HAN JIE

If you lose, you’ll perform a round of Radish Dance. What do you say?

FANG XIAO ROU

What’s there to be afraid of? You want to do that. Let’s do that. Xiao Rou Squat, Xiao Rou Squat, Xiao Rou Squat done. Han Jie Squat.

Director corrects Allison Lin, telling her it’s Han Jie Press-ups. Allison Lin corrects her lines.

FANG XIAO ROU

Han Jie Press-ups.

Lego Li uses his fingers on hand to act out the press ups.

HAN JIE

Han Jie Press-ups, Han Jie Press-ups, Han Jie Press-ups.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

(referring to Han Jie’s press-ups)

Weak.

The director and the young actors laugh at Lego Li’s humorous action.

LEGO LI

(turns to the director)

I’ll do it in a moment!

DIRECTOR

Let me have a look at how you’re going to do it.

Lego Li immediately drops and does the press ups.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Don’t look down on me.

Lego Li is doing press-ups facing in the incorrect direction.

DIRECTOR

Head facing this way.

Lego Li swivels to the correct direction and resumes acting.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Ge has been practising.

HAN JIE

Han Jie press-ups, Han Jie press-ups done. Xiao Rou, Stand-and-Squat.

Lego Li says the wrong action. It’s one wave not stand-and-squat. Allison Lin goes to correct Lego Li.

FANG XIAO

One wave.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

(referring to Allison Lin’s actions)

Cueing self.

HAN JIE

Xiao Rou, one wave.

FANG XIAO ROU

Xiao Rou One Wave, Xiao Rou One Wave.

Students laugh. Fang Xiao Rou stops doing her one wave.

FANG XIAO ROU

Why do I have to do a wave? 哪招啊

Xiao Rou a Stand-and-Squat. Did you forget what you said? The person who loses needs to do a Radish Dance.

FANG XIAO ROU

HAN JIE

I just thought of it now.

FANG XIAO ROU

Bring. On. The Music.

Fang Xiao Rou starts singing and dancing a radish dance of squatting and hands alternating above the head. Han Jie dances along with Fang Xiao Rou. The students and the radish farm owners start joining in.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Music’s wrong. She sings herself.

FANG XIAO ROU

Picking radish, picking radish. Black! Black! Picking radish.

A dance aimed to make someone laugh. Dancing from the heart: No music. Very embarrassing…

Fang Xiao starts to shimmy as her eyes widen in a crazy look before resuming to a normal dance of the shimmy dance. Meanwhile, Jarvis does the shimmy and describes the dance that Allison Lin is doing.

JARVIS

Over there is the cleavage shimmy.

Water, right?

Allison Lin grabs the water bottle that the interviewer hands to her.

ALLISON LIN (CONT’D)

It’s a great group activity.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Already tired. Already tired.

ALLISON LIN

It’s good that I’ve played this game before. Otherwise It’ll be embarrassing and awkward.

RADISH FARM SHED

Lego Li and Allison Lin at their chairs.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Already paralysed.

LEGO LI

Lots of fun. I can’t express it enough. The screenwriter needs to write more of this in. Okay?

ALLISON LIN

Right, right, right. I can play this kind of game. I can do with a little more of this.

Allison Lin laughs at her own comment as she has her head leaned right against her chair and off to one side, looking exhausted.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

These two played till they were paralysed.

LEGO LI

Right! As much as possible. Write in Taizhong, Kenting Town, these places. The Separate Customs Territory of Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu. Feel free to write it, okay? We’ll cooperate willingly.

Allison Lin looks at Lego Li with a surprise in her expression before turning back to look at the camera, looking like she’s wondering what Lego Li is uttering over there next to her.

MA CHONG SHENG

Unsophisticated.

WANG MAI ZHI

Just looking at it I can tell you copied me.

Ma Chong Sheng pokes Wang Mai Zhi’s fish paste on his plate. Wang Mai Zhi pokes Ma Chong Sheng with his elbow as he continues his words.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

(referring to Ma Chong Sheng’s actions)

I’m poking.

WANG MAI ZHI (CONT’D)

Sincerity fears no fire. Deep, tender love exists between lovers. Fish paste of love.

(NB: the Sincerity fears no fire idiom translates to – a person of sincerity can stand tests.)

Wang Mai Zhi moves his plate in front of Ma Chong Sheng to place it before Liu Xuan who’s off-screen. Ma Chong Sheng pokes at the Wang Mai Zhi’s fish paste again.

WANG MAI ZHI

Liu Xuan, I present this to you. At the same time, I present to you my sincerity.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

(referring to Ma Chong Sheng’s actions)

Insufficient memory.

Hong Yan Xiang is laughing hard silently. He hides his face behind Ben Wu in total embarrassment.

Cut to another footage of Hong Yan Xiang and Ben Wu talking to the camera talking about Hong Yan Xiang’s lines again.

HONG YAN XIANG

Thinking about it, what comes after immature? “Mai Zi, he’s even making me angry.” Saying it like that… really does sound immature.

Lego Li has hands are covered with fish paste. He’s holding his hands covered with fish paste in front of him, hands apart. He has a look of intrigue as he looks at the thick tendon-like fish paste stretched out between his hands. Allison Lin also looks along with Lego Li.

LEGO LI

Fish tendon.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Another childish combination.

ALLISON LIN

This here, it’s a kind of breathing exercise he’s doing. Stop. Doesn’t the kamehameha wave have that kind of white-coloured energy? Doesn’t it?

Lego Li directs the fish paste kamehameha wave at Allison Lin and imitates the characters in Dragonball Z series doing the kamehameha wave.

LEGO LI

(quietly)

Ahhhhhhh!

The fish paste in Lego Li’s hands has snapped, no longer connected at the middle.

ALLISON LIN

(pointing to the fish paste)

It became like this.

A delayed reaction to Lego Li’s kamehameha wave, Allison Lin leans back a little and holds a hand to her chest, having been hit by it.

Lego Li has the fish paste ball in his hands and is slapping it hard back down into the bowl below. As he is doing this, he directs Allison Lin a serious and angry look.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

(referring to the impact sound of the fish paste ball going into the bowl)

Whack!

ALLISON LIN

What is it? Does the fish paste owe you money?

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Han Jie’s dark side.

Lego Li simply continues to look at Allison Lin. He then goes back to paying attention to the fish paste in his bowl, kneading it and rolling it for a bit. He picks the fish paste back up again and whacks it back down and sends Allison Lin another look. The throw is slightly softer this time. And so is the look he directs Allison Lin.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Whack.

ALLISON LIN

Why are you looking at me like that whilst playing with it?

Lego Li breaks out into quiet laughter to Allison Lin’s comment as he continues to roll and knead the fish paste in the bowl below him.

ALLISON LIN

This makes me a little afraid.

Allison Lin keeps looking at Lego Li who still has his attention on the fish paste he’s rolling and kneading in the bowl below him. Lego Li chuckles. Allison Lin breaks out into a chuckle watching him chuckle.

The shot cuts and we jump in time.

LEGO LI

When we change locations later, people will definitely ask me, “Did you come back from the fish market?” The whole day, I’ve been playing with fish.

Allison Lin turns to the camera and begins elaborating on Lego Li’s words.

ALLISON LIN

From a whole, real fish…

A picture of a fish appears on the screen. The shot goes to focus on the bowl with Lego Li holding the fish paste ball in his hands, showing it to the camera.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

King Size. Top quality fish balls.

ALLISON LIN (CONT’D) off-screen

…he made it into the way it is now.

Allison Lin bends down to the camera to get into the shot that has been focusing on the fish paste ball.

ALLISON LIN

It was a completely whole fish with scales.

SEAFOOD MARKET KITCHEN Lego Li and Allison Lin

Preparing for the scene that sees Fang Xiao Rou go into a dream sequence of Han Jie as a master chef on stage. Lego Li and Allison Lin are standing by a chopping board with fish paste on it. Lego Li is chopping lightly at the fish paste.

DIRECTOR off-screen

Lego: look at Allison looking at it a little longer.

Lego Li stops chopping after the director’s instructions and moves away from the chopping board. Allison Lin takes hold of the meat cleaver, waiting for instructions. Lego Li makes a comment to the director’s instructions.

LEGO LI

There will be feelings like this!

Allison Lin continues to be concentrated on her job. Meanwhile, Lego Li continues to loiter around the area, standing some distance away from where Allison Lin is. He goes to make another comment on the director’s instructions.

LEGO LI

Will there be a pregnancy like this?

(NB: not sure if there is another meaning to the text. This seems a little bit of an odd speech… Is Lego Li taking on a bit of Han Jie’s personality?)

Lego Li’s comment takes a while to get to Allison Lin, but it does. Allison Lin laughs awkwardly to Lego Li’s odd question before she laughs speechless.

OFF-SCREEN

Primary school standard. So worrisome.

OFF-SCREEN

(referring to Allison Lin’s reaction)

Left speechless.

Love Cuisine: every Friday night, 10:00pm

Julia and Tania Comments:

Was that scene where Allison Lin and Lego Li had to film the rescue of Fang Xiao Rou scene not interesting?! Before Lego Li explained what was happening whilst he was filming that scene, it really did look like he had pushed Allison Lin off and not cared that she was having trouble in the water. But no, he was actually choking on water and tried to get her towards safety as quickly as he could before both got themselves into trouble. Poor Lego Li! Allison Lin was really cool. She found the whole thing hilarious after getting back on shore, despite feeling quite afraid at the time. She wasn’t just laughing lightly, she was seriously laughing quite hard about it!! We really love this particular part of the BTS. The Kamehameha Wave scene at the end was cute, too!
