Not watching Fall in Love with Me hasn’t been that bad a trade off since I get to check out plenty of pretty Aaron Yan drama stills without needing to wade through the plot insanity and bad acting. I can believe that some viewers can get past Tia Li‘s bad acting enough to enjoy the OTP storyline and chemistry but that particular hill is too high for me to climb over. Tia from a few years ago was probably a lesser actress but she didn’t have another excessive round of plastic surgery, which she admitted to last year, that has now caused her face to swell up and be stiffer than even her poker face acting. Aaron has improved so much from his early bad acting days I’m just waiting for him to pair up with a genuinely good actress. Puff Guo overacted her way through Just You and even if I like her there’s still no denying she has no subtlety when playing plucky heroines. Maybe one day Aaron can act with Ariel Lin and show me something really astonishing out of it. He’s also been constantly in the public eye this Summer to promote his two-part mini albums Drama and Cut, which includes the addicting track from FILWM called “That’s Not Me.” He’s on the cover and pages of this month’s Men’s Uno magazine channeling a combo I shall call “Dark Blue Steel Aaron”. If there was ever an Taiwan version of Zoolander I can’t find a better actor to play the lead than Aaron, he’s goofy and self-deprecating and doesn’t have a problem with primping and posing to his heart’s content. The blue furry sweater he sports in one of the stills below is clearly from the same fashion collection as its pink twin worn by Lee Min Ho in Heirs. I shudder to think it’s an actual trend rather than an one-off abomination.
