Betelnut Beauty (Chinese title: 愛你愛我) is a Taiwanese romantic comedy by Lin Cheng-sheng, released in 2001. It stars Li Xinjie (a.k.a. Lee Sin-jie and Angelica Lee) and Chang Chen.

While the plot is ostensibly about the relationship between a young drifter and a betelnut salesgirl, the main interest of the movie is its depiction of a quintessentially Taiwanese phenomenon, the sale of betelnuts from transparent roadside booths by young women, who attract the attention of prospective customers by wearing outrageously skimpy clothing.

  • Happy Rain: Fei-fei, annoyed by her mother, steps outside just as a summer downpour is falling. She releases pent-up frustration with a long shout, and Feng joins her under the rain.
