This story gets cuter every time Ariel is asked about it, and the TW-media is all over it right now. Ariel Lin has been even more of a media darling since her hit drama In Time With You really connected with viewers and critics alike. Folks were sad when she announced she would not do any more dramas due to the hectic shooting schedule and personal health reasons, so it was a happy surprise when she suddenly announced that she was accepting the lead in the C-period drama King of Lan Ling.
Despite her leading man being Feng Shao Feng, Ariel has confessed that she accepted the project solely because of the other lead Daniel Chan. Apparently Daniel was her first ever star crush, and when she was in 9th grade, she owned many laminated pictures of him (over 200 so she admits) and he was plastered all over her bedroom wall. Tee hee, the chemistry in this drama is going to be so fascinating since in the drama, it’s Daniel’s character that is rabidly in love with Ariel, while she falls for Feng Shao Feng’s character.
It’s okay, Ariel, don’t be embarrassed. Go ahead and fulfill your star struck fantasy and oogle Daniel all you want for the next few months on the set of King of Lan Ling. We totally understand why. It’s not every day a girl gets to act opposite her idol. Every time Ariel is asked about Daniel, she starts giggling and blushing in interviews, it is so darn cute. King of Lan Ling starts filming shortly, and I’ll bring the stills from the set when its unveiled. Ariel has also revealed that her elder family members love seeing her in period dramas, so here’s to hoping she’ll do more period roles after this. I also love seeing her in period pieces. But as a period project, Ariel probably won’t see her crush Daniel in his more natural state. Boo for her (and us). Let’s let this picture tide Ariel over.
