The Fall in Love with Me narrative insanity continues and with it comes the commensurate uptick in ratings which has yielded the most fanservice from the drama cast yet with leading man Aaron Yan going shirtless as per his promise if the ratings broke 2%. That’s so sad, in the past such male lead shirtlessness required ratings to break 5% (Joseph Chang delivering shirtless diving for Drunken to Love You) or even surpassing 6% (both Vanness Wu and Chris Wu going diving to celebrate Autumn’s Concerto‘s skyrocketing ratings). SETTV really knows how to milk its sole lure in watching FILWM, not to mention Aaron being in the most fit shape of his life these days with what my feeble mind counts as 8-pack abs. The cast showed up for the media to watch Aaron take off his shirt, and Tia Li was mildly useful in doing the enviable task of unbuttoning his flower blazer. I wonder if she was trying to take off that abomination to burn it. Check out the pics below and does anyone else think Aaron borrowed that blazer from Liu Yi Hao over at Pleasantly Surprised (Love Myself or You)? I don’t mind the fanservice since that’s all that remains in the drama, and this isn’t me talking but actual TW-viewers who are so frustrated with this drama’s recent bout with the second female lead faking being a cripple to get Aaron’s character to marry her, and when he waffles her mom ups the ante by threatening to destroy Tia’s company if Aaron doesn’t play ball. Now we all know where the second female lead gets her crazy genes from, sadly it didn’t skip generations in that family.
I’ve heard TW-netizens snark about wanting to euthanize the entire family of the second female lead, LOL. Even the media outlets are reporting that viewer are so angry with this drama but can’t stop watching it, with comments like everyone in this drama needs to go see a psychiatrist” and “this is so stupid I might need to see a psychiatrist soon”. Ahahahaha, I love watching viewers watch a train wreck drama without having to watch it myself.
