It’s the year of Aaron Yan in Taiwanese entertainment and we are all living with him just living it up. Since starring in the Friday night drama Just You with Puff Guo last year, he’s been on a nonstop tear releasing singles like last year’s “Taipei Sleeping” and “Unstoppable Sun” followed by two mini-albums this year with Drama and Cut. His single “That’s Not Me” as the opening theme for his Sunday night drama Fall in Love with Me costarring Tia Li has been a smash hit though the drama less so. But his performance has been getting good feedback plus FILWM was so bad it was actually buzzworthy in that people tuned in to watch it derail spectacularly. It shows that Aaron can be in crap and still come out smelling like roses. He just dropped a dance remix of his single “No Cut” last week with Puff as his leading lady, with both of them showing truly awkward moving to the tune in what might be a facsimile of dancing.
I still love them both though, but please don’t ever dance anymore either individually or together. Sadly my plea was immediately squashed when Aaron held an outdoor fan concert this past weekend with both Puff and Tia in attendance, and he went and performed “No Cut” live with Puff for the audience. Sigh. They are really just too cute together and I supposed bad dancing is all in good fun when the two of them are fully aware of their limitations. Aaron was also on an MTV talk show last week and chose Puff as his favorite kissing costar from all his dramas, complementing her lips as being especially soft and pillowy. He also shared how fun it is to film a drama with her because, unlike her cold image, she’s actually quite boyish and a prankster in real life. I’m sensing Aaron making a love call to Puff to be his costar again in a future drama, and if she got the message loud and clear I hope it comes true soon. As for Tia and Aaron? Please drama gods never ever again. Ever.
