Synopsis
As a boy who had grown up in an orphanage, EJ (Kai Ko) met Hsin-Hsin (Ariel Lin), the one girl who’d care and hold him close to heart. Blossoming into a deep, mutual affection, Hsin-Hsin became the single most cherished soul in EJ’s young heart. For some reason, whenever Hsin-Hsin thought of EJ, she couldn’t stop sneezing. As they grew up, Hsin-Hsin left the orphanage to work in the city. EJ, on the other hand, swore to be “the bravest man” to earn Hsin-Hsin’s love and devoted himself to become a boxer. Through his unyielding love for Hsin-Hsin, EJ became a legend in the boxing ring as the “man who could not be knocked-out”. Yet as the evil Dr.Cube schemed in the shadows, threatening Hsin-Hsin’s life with all sorts of dangers, EJ will soon learn that his true purpose lies not in becoming some superhero, but to be the one-and-only superman for the person he cares most in the world.

A tear-jerker about friendship, self-exploration, youth and most importantly - love.

If you're a fan of heart-wrenching tear-jerkers like ‘You Are the Apple of My Eye’, and ‘Our Times’, you are in for a treat!

‘A Choo’ is set in an ordinary world with a select few with superpowers. The main character, Wang Yi Zhi (Kai Ko), falls in love with Hsin Hsin (Ariel Lin) during his adolescent years. She tells Wang Yi Zhi that she will only fall in love with a brave man. To prove his bravery to Hsin Hsin, Wang Yi Zhi decides to train as a boxer before he allows himself to profess his love.

Time waits for no one, and as Wang Yi Zhi is in the process of becoming the best boxer, Hsin Hsin falls for a geeky computer engineer who is secretly a famous superhero. Wang Yi Zhi isn’t willing to give up Hsin Hsin and forces himself to face tougher opponents in the ring, but only to face even harsher disapproval from Hsin Hsin. When Hsin Hsin gets kidnapped, Wang Yi Zhi must prove his love and his fighting skills to get the girl of his dreams. 

When I was watching ‘A Choo’, I kept getting the same vibes as I did from watching ‘You Are the Apple of My Eye’, and true enough; both films share the same screenwriter. I will not spoil too much, but for fans of screenwriter Giddens Ko, you will be familiar with his style of writing.

Personally, ‘A Choo’ wasn’t as emotionally captivating as I'd expected. That may be due to the addition of too many action scenes that broke the emotional pacing. That being said, I still teared a drop or two.

Reviewer advise: Bring along some tissues in case you weep your hearts out.
