Love Cuisine, Episode 7

This is the English translations for the Behind the Scenes of Love Cuisine, Episode 7 (料理高校生 – 第7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 7: Behind the Scenes translations accompanied by images!

Beautiful lady.

(referring to Amanda Chou’s mistake)

Mother-daughter?!

(NB: the sound for mother-daughter is mû nǚ—similar to the mistake of ‘mu lu’ that Amanda Chou said.)

AMANDA CHOU (CONT’D)

Oh, hey—that’s not right. Bí lú—What is mu lu?

(NB: Bí lú – beautiful lady in Taiwanese.)

Amanda Chou laughs at her own mistake as she places hands on shoulders in Allison Lin’s ridicule of her mistake:

ALLISON LIN

My god! She can’t speak Taiwanese.

Amanda Chou hides behind her before returns back to her position and laughs at herself in embarrassment.

ALLISON LIN

Cow.

(NB: The word, ‘cow’ in Mandarin-Chinese has a similar sound to the word Amanda Chou spoke with incorrectly for ‘beautiful lady’.)

Beautiful lady, is it?

Beautiful lady.

ALLISON LIN

It should be, right? I’m not entirely sure, either. But, it’s definitely not mother-daughter.

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Same difference…

Allison Lin’s remark brings herself and Cindy Yao to break into laughter once more.

AMANDA CHOU

(slight defensive tone)

In what way have I spoken it that it sounded like mother-daughter?

Rehearsing the scene of Wen Zhen Yu being asked by his colleagues about the chances of winning the second round of the Universiade.

WEN ZHEN YU

Winning the competition, is simple and easy to uphold.

(NB: Duncan Chow’s line was supposed to be 輕而易舉 (qīng ér yì jǔ). He has mucked up the line, switching two of the characters around of an idiom which somewhat changed the meaning.)

ON-SCREEN TEXT

Easy, one, two, uphold?!

(NB: On-screen text was: 輕一二舉 (qīng ér yì jǔ). The characters that Duncan Chow had switched around 易 而(yì ér) has the same sound as 一二 (yī èr).

WEN ZHEN YU

But, some situation appears to have taken place. It’s very hard to say.

Nita Lei turns to Calvin Lee as Li Zhi Chao who takes a moment before he begins speaking. It brings Nita Lei to appear to want to break out into a smile that she is attempting to hold staight.

LI ZHI CHAO

Teacher Wen, did you answer my question answering it like this?

(NB: The line Calvin Lee has said is not in the script.)

Nita Lei is wide-eyed towards Calvin Lee with her lips pressed tightly together.

WEN ZHEN YU

It’s generally difficult to say with these sorts of things in a competition.

FANG XIAO ROU AND JIANG PEI YING RESIDENCE Allison Lin, Nita Lei

Filming the scene of Jiang Pei Ying helping Fang Xiao Rou handle her anger towards Han Jie after finding out he is the student she hates the most at the Universiade.

FANG XIAO ROU

Remember to find me.

JIANG PEI YING

I will. Alright. Have a practice. Treat this as Han Jie. Do you see Han Jie? Let’s go. Use strength. Use strength. Use strength!

FANG XIAO ROU

Stupid Han Jie!

Allison Lin as Fang Xiao Rou cries and goes in to punch the yellow pillow Nita Lei as Jiang Pei Ying holds for Fang Xiao Rou to punch. Jiang Pei Ying doesn’t hold the pillow steady enough and the pillow comes back and hits Allison Lin in the face after Allison Lin lands a punch on it.

Double in anger.

Cut scene. Jump in time. Another take of the shot.Jiang Pei Ying holds the pillow—an orange one this time, ready for Fang Xiao Rou to hit.

JIANG PEI YING

Let’s go. Alright. Okay.

Fang Xiao Rou strikes with a huge fist to the pillow.

ALLISON LIN

HAN JIE!

JIANG PEI YING

Ow, ow, ow. It hurts. It hurts.

Fang Xiao Rou’s attacks on the pillow become frienzied with slaps. Jiang Pei Ying struggles to keep up with the attacks, but continues for the meanwhile.

FANG XIAO ROU

You should die!

JIANG PEI YING

Keep up this sort of steam. It’s much too fierce. Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!

(referring to Jiang Pei Ying’s exclamation at the end)

Skipping and repeating.

Fang Xiao Rou hits the pillow hard again. Nita Lei goes out of character.

NITA LEI

Oh, oh! Ah! E! Ah! Ooh! Eh! Oh!

Allison Lin grabs Nita Lei by the ear to stop her from complaining of pain.

NITA LEI

Ah! Ah!

Allison Lin, smiling in amusement, lets go of Nita Lei’s ear and begins hitting the pillow.

NITA LEI

Eh! Ooh! Ooh!

Allison Lin pushes the pillow into Nita Lei to stop her from complaining of pain. Nita Lei backs away slightly to avoid it. She laughs.

ALLISON LIN

(in a low voice)

You’re scared now, are you?

Allison Lin smiling, takes a seat back on the couch. Nita Lei laughs.

NITA LEI

Really frightening.

Nita Lei changes to a serious expression.

NITA LEI

Well then, let’s give Yao Xin Ti a beating while we’re at it. I’ll hand Yao Xin Ti over as your responsibility.

Cut scene. Jump in time. Nita Lei holds and hugs a tired and sleepy Allison Lin.

INTERVIEWER

There is great sisterly happiness.

NITA LEI

Poor her. She filmed an entire day’s of crying scenes.
Yes. She’s puffy the whole day. But it’s no problem. Just look at it this way. You’re puffy for a whole day ___________.

(NB: Unable to catch the remaining words of Nita Lei with no Chinese subtitles.)

Lights turn off and sounds of crew packing is heard as Nita Lei continues to talk and comfort Allison Lin.

Julia and Tania Comments:

These BTSs are really testing us! With the usual unsubbed parts at the end that we always struggle with and strain our ears just to catch whatever Mandarin-Chinese we can catch and the addition of Taiwanese—a language we don’t know at all, we had so much trouble translating this episode BTS. We’re not too sure about grammar of Taiwanese, so we hope we got it right.

There’s no Lego Li and Allison Lin interaction in this BTS, but still entertaining, particularly the parts with Allison Lin. Allison Lin can feature alone and we’d be entertained. She always makes us pay attention and make us wonder what things she’ll come up with for these BTSs. Her imitation of others are funny, too.

The most interesting part we found is Allison Lin/Fang Xiao Rou on the defensive as Nita Lei/Jiang Pei Ying called her for being friendly with her enemy, Amanda Chou/Cindy Yao! Nita Lei just kept coming at Allison Lin for being a traitor! And Amanda Chou was on the side calling Nita Lei jealous and laughing at the whole situation. Awesome interaction here.

Duncan Chow is the other cast member who brings in liveliness to these BTSs. We found that small part where Duncan Chow tells Nita Lei to quieten down funny. Nita Lei was being rowdy and hitting Calvin Lee with her Si Ping cheering signboard and it seems Duncan Chow was looking for some quietness. We think Hank Wu (the actor behind brownnoser, Dean Su Ying Jun) might also have been looking for some quietness. He didn’t say anything, though. He just turns back to the front unlike Duncan Chow who actually did something about the noise! Hehe. Oops.

And Amanda Chou, the actress behind Cindy Yao, is quite cool, too. She was very lively and fun in this BTS. She interacted very well with Allison Lin.
