Love In Taipei: trailer

Ever Wong's summer takes an unexpected turn when her parents surprise her with a trip to Taipei for a cultural immersion program.

Young Adult romance film Love In Taipei, based on the New York Times’ best-selling novel Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen screens on Paramount+.

In the novel, a young American woman is sent by her parents to a cultural immersion program in Taipei – inspired by an actual program attended by thousands of Chinese and Taiwanese diaspora youth – where she begins a new journey of self-discovery and romance. Love In Taipei will stream exclusively on Paramount+ from Friday, 11 August.

Love In Taipei stars Ashley Liao (Physical, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes) as Ever Wong, whose summer takes an unexpected turn when her parents surprise her with a trip to Taipei for a cultural immersion program. Ever is surprised to discover that she hasn’t signed up for homework and history lessons, but instead for a summer-long free-for-all the locals and other students call Loveboat. It quickly lives up to its name when Ever finds herself trying not to fall for two attractive but wildly different boys who are vying for her attention, while at the same time finding the courage to defy her parents’ high expectations and pursue her true passion: dancing. 

In addition to Ashley Liao, Love In Taipei also stars Ross Butler (Shazam! Fury of the Gods, To All The Boys franchise) as Rick Woo, a prominent sports and scholastic prodigy; Nico Hiraga (Booksmart, Moxie) as Xavier Yeh, a free-spirited artist and heir to an international tech empire, Chelsea Zhang (Daybreak, Titans) as Ever’s friend Sophie, whom she meets at Loveboat, and Cindy Cheung (The Sinner, 13 Reasons Why) as Ever’s Aunt Shu.

Love In Taipei is directed by Arvin Chen (Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?) and produced by Matt Kaplan for Ace Entertainment. The film, shot on location in Taipei, is based on the bestselling book Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen, who also serves as executive producer, and screenplay by Charlie Oh and Mackenzie Dohr. Christopher Foss, Matthew Janzen, Max Siemers, Aubrey Bendix, Cheng-Chung Chang, and Ross Butler also serve as executive producers.

Friday, 11 August on Paramount+.
