These two bits of news have nothing whatsoever to do with each other (other than the Christmas theme), but since both happened this week AND I super love Ariel Lin and Roy Qiu, imma pulling an executive decision and making it a combined post. Also because – don’t they look good together! YY? Roy was at the DHL-sponsored charity movie premiere for the movie Arthur Christmas, where he is the dubbed voiced of the titular Arthur for the Taiwan release (saw the movie last weekend, wonderfully sweet and subversively charming with that very dry Brit humor). Ariel, on the other hand, attended a Christmas display unveiling for the Taipei Mitsukoshi department store where she adorably welcomed the Christmas spirit to Taipei. If these two ever made a movie or drama together, I might become incoherent from the level of anticipation for it to arrive.
Roy mentioned that he loves Christmas, and when he was a kid, he would spend the month of December counting down until the day arrived. He’s been working so hard on Office Girls that his mom hasn’t seen him in a good long while, and he hopes to spend some time with her during this holiday season if he gets any free time.
My heart goes out to the poor feller dressed like a reindeer. He’s creepy in that sad way whenever a human being is shoved into an animal suit. Children, don’t try this at home.
Ariel was asked, as expected, about her recent breakup. She candidly confessed that it was hard but she doesn’t mind spending the holidays as a singleton. She is still planning to take time away from television, but wouldn’t count out a good movie or stage script should one arise. Ariel wrapped In Time With You back in September, so she has been busy in the last two months promoting ITWY and her movie Lovesick. Roy is still filming OG (which is now on a live-filming schedule), but he has stated his intention to take a long overdue break from acting after OG to rest and recharge (and go race car driving). It’s been such a treat to have both Roy and Ariel on my screen every week, I’ve been really treasuring this great Fall drama season.
