I’m curious as to why GTV is so secretive about confirming the news, but long-in-development TW-drama Absolute Darling started filming yesterday, according to various Weibo updates from actors working on the drama. Lead actress Gu Hye Sun has been in Taiwan since last week, which further confirms the news.
As for which actor is stepping in for departed Wu Zun? I’m 99.9% sure it is in fact Zun’s Fahrenheit bandmate Jiro Wang, who yesterday posted a picture of himself on his Weibo wearing a pair of pajamas, on the set of a new project. I’ve read Zettai Kareshi the manga, and Night-o definitely dons a pair of PJs after he emerges from the box naked. Also, another AD actor posted on Weibo that he’s gotten a lot of new followers who are Jiro fans, and he complimented Jiro as being very handsome in person.
I’m pretty sure Jiro is ready to be a buff robot based on his physique recently. There has been no confirmation on who plays second male lead Soshi’s character, but all the previous rumors have Nicholas Teo attached to the role. Oy vey, I really don’t know what to think about this adaptation – from the story to the actors, I’m just befuddled and very conflicted. Will bring more news as it drops.
