Autumn’s Concerto (also known as Next Stop, Happiness) is a 21 episode Taiwanese drama that will most definitely tug at your heart strings.
A more realistic version of your typical Cinderella story, Autumn’s Concerto focuses on the relationship between Ren Guang Xi, a cocky law student and the successor to a huge business, and Liang Mu Cheng, the bento seller at his school canteen. Of course, typical of Cinderella style dramas, their relationship is not all smooth sailing as there are people who are dead set against their relationship, such as Guang Xi’s snobby mum and Mu Cheng’s pervy stepfather. Also, there are other characters who fight for Guang Xi and Mu Cheng’s affections, making their relationship much more complicated.
Autumn’s Concerto boasts a star-studded cast, with Van Ness Wu and Ady An playing the two lead characters. It also shot child actor Xiao Xiao Bin to stardom. It became the second highest rating drama series in Taiwan (behind Fated to Love You) and it is without a doubt, my all-time favourite Taiwanese drama that I would recommend.
