Kyaaaaaa! He’s back and he’s back as the male lead! After carrying an entire narratively craptastic drama on his slim shoulders for the first six-months of 2013, Chris Wu took a short two month break to recharge after the King Flower insanity and this week quietly sneaked into filming for an upcoming idol drama. Eagled-eyed fans of Ella Chen spotted her filming on the Tai Da (Taiwan National University) campus and her agency confirmed that she’s making her television comeback in three years with a TW-drama tentatively titled Any Lie Can Become Truth (無謊不成真). Ella’s last TW-drama was the underrated 2010 Down with Love co-starring Jerry Yan. It actually wasn’t bad but I used to be severely allergic to Ella’s tomboy mugging and actively avoided her old dramas. She almost destroyed my eyes in Taiwan Hana Kimi and I endured The Rose because Joe Cheng’s hella awesome performance. But all girls grow up eventually and two years ago Ella started changing her style right around the time she started dating her now husband. She went all sexy and feminine on us and the look suited her fabulously especially since she’s got a naturally salty personality. No details are available about this drama yet other than Ella will NOT be playing a boyish character as she’s done in all her previous dramas and instead will be playing a sexy older woman. Nice, change it up, Ella! I also hope she keeps her mugging down to a minimum, I’ve grown quite fond of her since she did a movie with Vic Zhou and they surprisingly made an adorable couple. I don’t want to have to skewer her if she resorts to mugging her way through a drama starring my beloved Chris. I’m so happy for Chris since Ella is well loved in Taiwan and her comeback drama will likely be quite a media chronicled production. The drama is being produced by an outside production company so no word on which network will scoop it up or when it’ll air. Please let it air later this year!
