These pictures are simultaneously adorable and slightly awkward. I can’t describe it but the body language between the leads of Pleasantly Surprised (Love Myself or You) at the magazine fan signing event make me laugh at and with them. Puff Guo and her overgrown big boy of a costar Liu Yi Hao hit up SETTV headquarters for the fan signing of their just released S-Pop magazine edition featuring all sorts of summery feels. Which is why I immediately want to bop Liu Yi Hao on the head for arriving dressed like a grandpa attending church in the fall. Tweed? Or a suit that looks like tweed? In the middle of Summer in Taiwan? Dressing fail, my boy, dressing fail. It would have been better to just show up in character in one of Ah Jie’s interchangeable flower printed bermuda shorts.
Luckily Puff is perfectly breezy for the two of them, but seeing them interact outside the drama just reminds me of a noona and her dongsaeng who blushes when he has to get close to her. I feel Liu Yi Hao stammering deep down inside in all the pictures of them close together while Puff is like “I know, I know”. They have great chemistry onscreen, don’t get me wrong, but an actor like Aaron Yan can sell all sorts of fursploding chemistry with his leading lady even off screen in real life promotional events. Regardless of whether Liu Yi Hao and Puff can ever spark in real life, they are definitely sparking in the drama now that their characters are fully aware of each other’s pasts and are moving towards the acknowledgment of their feelings for each other. If Liu Yi Hao did influence Puff on anything, it’s putting a million dollar smile on her face all the time since he totally makes her laugh with his unique charm.
