The amount of news overdrive coming out of Taiwan entertainment is causing me to have some slight blurry vision from reading too much newsprint. Luckily, a look at my goddess Ariel Lin makes my eyes refocus again. GTV‘s upcoming drama In Time With You starring Ariel and Bolin Chen commenced production this week, and I’m eager for the first stills to trickle out. Drunken to Love Me is getting all the TW-buzz these days (with good reason – it’s freaking awesome), so this drama is totally filming under the radar.
I believe it’s going to be pre-produced, since GTV has its hands full with dramas ready to air right now. There are conflicting reports out, so its unclear whether Sunshine Angel with Rainie Yang and Wu Zun is getting the post-Sunny Happiness timeslot (why, I want this drama so bad), or it will be Mike He and Cyndi Wang‘s just wrapped drama Mei Le, Go (why, I don’t want this drama at all). Please let it be Sunshine Angel, it looks so cute.
So they are following up one Mike drama for another, aren’t they worried about audience fatigue with too much Mike? Or is that even possible? And don’t even get me started on the other GTV drama sitting in the vault, the long-wrapped Hayate the Combat Butler with George Hu and Park Shin Hye, which still has no definitive airdate.
Above is a picture Ariel posted of the set and the scene board indicating which scene they are about to film. I Might Not Love You is helmed by the awesome PD who directed Ariel in It Started With a Kiss and They Kiss Again, and Ariel clearly has quite a lot of mutual understanding with her long-time collaborator. Below are some stills from Ariel and Bolin’s upcoming Summer TW-movie Love Phobia, which gives an inkling of what to expect for the drama, which will be their second project together in one year.
