Fans of Taiwan pop and dramas were in luck this weekend when two heavyweights in the industry reunited even for a brief evening out. Actor-singer Show Luo and actress-singer Rainie Yang, long time friends and drama costars, were in attendance at the Beijing Music Radio China Top Awards and happily hung out. It’s been years since Hi My Sweetheart and the two good friends have actually focused on their music careers more than acting in recent years.
But that doesn’t mean they don’t deliver raging successes when they do, such as Rainie with Drunken to Love You and Show’s recent box office topping success being in Stephen Chow movies such as The Mermaid and Journey to the West. Both have expressed certainty that the TW idol drama days are behind them but appreciate how that helped bolster their careers and recognition in Asia to help them parlay natural talent to even greater acclaim. I hope they collaborate on more music today, the duet “When the King Meets the Queen” remains a fave of mine.
