Rainie Yang Reunites with Will Pan for Duet Single and Confirms Breakup with Younger Boyfriend Prince

No one can ever accuse Rainie Yang of being unable to act because she has the same one facial expression. To the contrary, she’s had to work hard to really reign herself in with a tendency to have a hundred different expressions some of which are delightfully animated. She’s like a walking manga shoujo heroine, with a saltier real life personality. It’s been much too long since I’ve seen Rainie acting, and two short mini-movies in the last three years doesn’t cut it. She did an Australian tourism online drama with Show Luo followed by an online long drama MV with Tony Yang and Sandrine Pinna for her single “Wishing for Happiness”. Both were excellent and better than most dramas actually, but for an actress who used to churn out one or two dramas a year it’s been a prolonged hiatus from the small screen since 2011’s Drunken to Love You with Joseph Chang.

Last month she reunited with one of her former costars in singer-actor Will Pan and recorded a cute duet single called “Snoring” which is the theme song for the currently SETTV daily Tie the Knot with Cheryl Yang and Kingone Wang. The song is light and breezy and reminds me of how much better Rainie and Will’s drama Miss No Good could have been if Will had been able to act back then. LOL, they have chemistry is all I’m saying. After filming the MV, Rainie cut off her already short bob into a pixie boy cut and showed up at the media event to promote a chewing gum brand she endorses. All the media wanted to talk about was her reported break up with much younger boyfriend of two years Prince. Rainie coolly admitted she’s getting used to being single again but didn’t elaborate any further. I’m impressed that she keeps lopping off her hair since she went a decade being the long-haired cute girl next door image in Taiwan. The little girl really is all grown up and hopefully her upcoming C-drama Not Love at First Sight will showcase a mature sexier image.

Look how much they’ve grown up since Miss No Good six years ago. Still so cute together! And kudos to Will for coming up with a song around snoring heh.

Will Pan “Snoring” featuring Rainie Yang:

Rainie can definitely pull off the pixie cut but this is probably as short as she can go. Any shorter and she’s enlisting in the army with a buzz cut.

  1. She’s all grown up…how time flies

    I remember how she went from her MG hair and kept growing and growing and growing it…and then lopped it off for DTLY…

    Working the Pixie

  2. Ohh, it really suits her!! I’ve always been fond of her, but many of my friends didn’t like her much in the past @_@~

  3. I really like the taxi argument reference to MNG in the MV intro.

    But I can’t imagine her hair getting any shorter. Can’t wait to see her in drama land again.

  4. Yea saw this about a month ago and they are as adorable as ever! Love Wilbur! Rainie is a favorite because she honestly appears to purposefully grow and learn.
    Not all actors or artists are the best at what they do but one can’t help but respect sincerity and diligence.
    In DTLY she was fixated on keeping the cut sleek and perfect, but now she’s truly allowed it to its own thing and fell in love. It looks amazing! Glad she’s still experimenting.

  5. Leroy isn’t in Tie the Knot, as far I know. It’s Nylon and Kingone. Hardly important to the article though 🙂 anyhow, Rainie is all grown up. Goodness from her idol group days and hosting on guess guess guess… I am really getting old LOL. Love to see her in something interesting again. I really wasn’t a big fan of her singing or acting but I always watched her dramas and enjoyed them. My hubby thinks her songs are catchy.

  6. I love these two together :”> Their chemistry is everything I got from Miss No Good ^^

    Thanks Koala for this 🙂

  7. I honestly think cutting the long hair was the best thing she did for her acting career. The hair always made her look significantly younger than her male costars, and just really young in general. I was actually really surprised, because I’ve followed her career in reverse and watched DTLY first, then went back and watched some of her earlier dramas, and was I surprised lol. She looked like a together, adult in DTYL but in her earlier stuff she was always the plucky almost teen. It’s amazing what a haircut did to how I perceived her in her roles.
