Hello, drama fans! ISWAK episode 3 recap is in the works and should be out within a day or so. In the meantime, I want to offer you a fun fact about something you hear often in Taiwanese dramas!
Jia you (加油) is a cheer used at competitions and sport games. It’s also great in lots of other situations… for example, Zhi Shu says 加油 to Xiang Qin before she takes her big test, and Mom says 加油 to Xiang Qin before she leaves the two home alone for a couple of days (Oops, episode 3 spoiler!).
You could translate it as “do your best,” but it literally means to add oil or fuel.
So, be sure to encourage your favorite bloggers and fan subbers by saying 加油, if you would like to cheer them on in Chinese! 😀
