Is anyone still watching Fall in Love with Me? I need a quickie summary of the latest happenings onscreen since the drama has managed to lure me back to check out this Sunday’s episode 16 with the promise of topless Aaron Yan and lots of kissing. The ratings for FILWM have been quite low for the network on the Sunday night slot and doesn’t look like a last swell of momentum is coming to drastically boost the ratings. That doesn’t mean the drama doesn’t need to work hard to keep its current viewers and this blatant fanservice of Aaron is bringing out the heavy guns. Aaron is likely all “no problem!” since he’s in such good shape lately with a rigorous workout routine that’s probably borrowed from his hyung Wu Zun and their Fahrenheit days together. Episode 16 shows the two leads Aaron and Tia Li on a camping trip together, there is water play by the creek that gets both of them wet followed by kissing around the campfire. I’m watched so many SETTV dramas I don’t even need to rack my brains to remember where these scenes are cribbed from.
Miss Rose had the leads go on a trip together that involved water play and taking clothes off afterwards to dry off, and King Flower had a pair of lovebirds kissing up a storm in front of a tent and campfire. I read the article that accompanied the new drama stills and it says something about Aaron’s character is reluctantly engaged to an injured girl while he and Tia escape reality on a romantic camping trip. Why is Aaron’s character being forced to marry another girl in the drama? Did she get hurt because of him? And it looks like she may be faking it or not telling him that she’s all better now. Didn’t Puff Guo‘s character in Miss Rose fake blindness just to get Roy Qiu to marry her? What passes for obstacles to true love in this drama is so dumb I can’t even, it was dumb the first time around in MR and now comes across as dumb and repetitive. Oh well, I’m going to take a peek at the shirtless making out scene no matter what. I doubt context is needed to watch this drama at this point so all I want is for Tia to be a full on participant in the kissing rather than sit there like a lump on Aaron’s lap. Check out the teaser treats below.
