I reckon every year there is at least one shift in each of my opinion categories – one actor I like ends up disappointing me to the degree that I don’t like the person anymore and one actor I dislike ends up surprising me to the degree where I become a converted fan. That’s a good thing in my mind and confirmation that the changing of the tides brings about more excitement in drama viewing because there is more to choose from. Ruby Lin was one of my surprises this year, and to say I really disliked her before she wowed me in Drama Go Go Go is an understatement. I was pretty much allergic to her onscreen and would roll my eyes thinking she was starring in yet another period weepie. I knew she was a budding producer now but didn’t care to learn more about her professional career development so I didn’t quite understand why she’s carved out a solid space in the industry as a smart, savvy, and formidable young producer-actress over the years. With DGGG she convinced me that she has a good eye for picking the right script because in a sea of sheer crap she managed to find the one C-romcom this year I didn’t want to bash my head in after watching one episode. Not only that, I’m still live watching it twice a week and its still owning my heart. It’s sweet and sincere despite its trappings of idol fluff. Last month Ruby was featured in Femina Magazine, one of China’s leading lady’s journals, in a glorious photo spread shot in Spain. These pictures are absolutely stunning and I’m thrilled to share them with everyone. It’s a nice reminders that under Wang Min Min’s frumpiness hides this va-va-va-woom lady.
