Drunken to Love You held a university viewing party/press conference yesterday, and lead actors Rainie Yang and Joseph Chang took time out of their busy filming schedule to attend the event. What’s notable was that an extended video clip was shown of upcoming scenes from the drama, including a sneak peak at one very steamy bed scene to come. Rainie blushed and said that she was NOT expecting that to be shown today (in front of all these college kids). When asked about filming said scene, both confessed that it was awkward until they both gave each other the green light to just go for it. And might I add, it looks like they really did just go for it. Watch the press conference for yourself.
I have to confess that Joseph is really growing on me. I still don’t find him attractive, but I love his character to bits, and his performance is wry and grounded, giving it a very masculine charm. And Rainie is flat out gorgeous in the drama. I spend good chunks of it just gaping at how beautiful and womanly she’s become. I’m positively giddy with excitement for Sunday’s episode 2.
Apparently the last line of dialogue in the preview clip shown at the viewing party was Jie Xiu (Joseph) cornering Xiao Ru (Rainie) against a wall and telling her “I have decided to fall in love with you. And to make you fall in love with me.” *swoons dead away*
