Yipppeeeee! I knew birthdays and anniversaries have always been good to me. This past week SETTV started filming its upcoming idol drama to follow Love Forward on Sundays starting in August. All the rumors turned out to be spot on, as the leading man will indeed be Roy Qiu, returning to the network that has launched and propelled his Taiwan acting career. His Office Girls co-star Alice Ke is also back on SETTV starring in the network’s first 9 pm daily drama with James Wen and Patrick Li, so this leaves Roy all alone without any of the OG pals around. This time his leading lady will be Megan Lai, and the second male lead is Double Chao, who hit it big last year in Rookies Diary with George Hu. The title of the drama is tentatively 螺絲小姐要出嫁 (literal translation Miss Screw is Getting Married), but I’m sure it’ll get a less weird English title closer to broadcast. I’m so excited its not even funny. Until then, have some of the latest pictures from Roy’s June pictorial.
This is a pretty looking cast, and I’m sure it’ll be filled with tons of SETTV alums. After a slew of disappointing dramas from GTV, right now SETTV is my only go-to network for Taiwan dramas. And don’t even get me started about CTV. Sigh.
