Am I being too snarky if I say that Aaron Yan pairing up with Tia Li for the upcoming SETTV Sunday night idol drama Fall in Love with Me feels like Barbie meeting Ken? It can’t be denied that both are ridiculously pretty in a manga character way, and a wee bit plasticky onscreen when emoting is called for and the delivery turns out to be flatter than a pancake. With that said, I’ll give this coupling the benefit of the doubt and pray SETTV has an interesting and entertaining story prepared so that they can coast through without requiring to carry the weight of the drama on their shoulders. Deja Vu ends in two weeks and Fall in Love with You premieres on April 6th so that’s right around the corner. The two leads met the press for a quick media event today at SETTV headquarters, and unless Taiwan secretly celebrates Saint Patrick’s Day, or Aaron Yan is Irish and I just didn’t know about it, Aaron showed up in a green plaid suit that even the most ardent Christmas fan or gung ho Irish descendant wouldn’t even wear. Maybe he coordinated with Tia beforehand because the whole look was salvaged by her wearing the cutest little white dress with black booties which balanced out way too much going on with Aaron’s outfit. The drama isn’t about twins despite the fall in love with two of me in the Chinese title – Aaron plays a world renowned marketing whiz who is burned out by the industry and decides to take a sabbatical because he is losing his perceptive touch. He meets Tia’s character who is a director as a small marketing firm and feels that she reignites his interest in creativity again so he decides to create a dorky alter ego who works part time at her company in the evening.
