Joe, I forgive you for the atrocity that was Channel X. So can you come back to dramas now? Hhhmmm? Since wrapping CX back in March, Joe Cheng has been laying low and occasionally popping up for endorsements here and there. I wonder if he’s on the outs with GTV after he accepted SETTV‘s CX, though I thought everyone was fine with that since Mike He jumped ship as well and took on the GTV drama that was originally handed to Joe. Regardless, seeing Ariel Lin on screen weekly does make me miss Joe more, since ISWAK will forever have a special place in my heart. Joe posed for a HK magazine shoot recently and the pictures are fabulous. No one, but no one, smirks like Joe can smirk in the picture above.
These pictures really show that Joe can never ever go back to playing a high school student. In fact, most of the idol leading men are all full grown now, and it’s only with fondness we look back on their youthful days when they played high school stereotypes that made our hearts beat faster. The acting might’ve been iffy, but the passion and heart was all there. Joe actually looked drop-dead gorgeous in CX, it’s just a shame the drama was a big hot mess.
