Foolish Bride, Naïve Bridegroom 三八新娘憨子婿 (1967)
Bun-tik (played by Shi Jung) is a naïve, dopey young man, who is aggressively chased by the women in his town, who are all oddly besotted with him. He is closely guarded by his father, A-kau (Chin Tu), who throws water at the girls to discourage them from courting Bun-tik. Bun-tik is only interested in one girl, the intrepid and mischievous Kui-ki (Chin Mei), a modern woman in the context of 1960s Taiwan, when conservative family values and traditional beliefs governed much of societal activity. One day, Bun-tik’s father and Kui-ki’s mother meet to discuss the possibility of the two young lovers getting married, but discover that they themselves were lovers 30 years ago.
