It’s finally payback time after four long years, and I mean that in a good way with much excitement. Newly minted Golden Bell Best Actor winner Chris Wu, who won for period drama A Touch of Green in late 2016, and also won Best Supporting Actor in 2015 for Wake Up, is going back to SETTV to make an idol drama. Forget asking why, I’m just salivating for him to repay all my love and goodwill for making it through all Substitute Princess/King Flower.
That drama narrative and audience reaction script shuffling remains unparallel in crazy but I had so much frustrating entertainment out of watching it. Chris went on an intense quality drama acting spree for the last three years after doing King Flower but has decided to have some fun by accepting the leading man role in upcoming Friday night idol drama The Perfect Match. He was handed the baton by recent SETTV drama male leads Marcus Chang and Melvin Sia.
Having Marcus around has the added wink wink factor in that the female lead of The Perfect Match will be Ivy Shao who did Back to 1989 with Marcus. The drama premieres in February and may be the one thing to get me back to TW-dramas again.
