Chinese version of Hana Yori Dango

There has been quite a lot of news floating around the net of a possible Chinese version of HYD. What interested me was the fact that Hankyung might be involved in this Chinese adaptation, if it ever occurs. Ariel Lin is also rumoured to be playing the role of ‘Makino’, which I think does not really suit her. I guess I’m just too used to her ditzy character in ISWAK. On top of that, doesn’t she have an upcoming drama planned with Jerry Yan? So how on earth is she going to be able to film the drama I have no idea.

I love HYD and all (even though I’ve only ever watched the Japanese version), but with a Korean version coming along on its way, I think it’s rather too soon to have a Chinese HYD. What with SuJu coming back next year with their third album, I’d say that Hankyung will have a heck of a lot of promotions to attend, not to mention the ones for his upcoming drama. And what about SJM? Isn’t there a rumour (or is it a rumour?) of them producing a second album next year as well? I’d rather all the SuJu members be present at their promotions than to have one of them filming dramas.

I guess we just have to keep in mind this is all just a rumour or plan thus far, as there has been no clarifications from either the artists or the producers of this adaptation definitely taking place.

Ariel Lin wins Best Actress award

Ariel Lin, with her role in They Kiss Again, won the Best Actress in the 43rd Golden Bell Award. This is the first time that Ariel has won an award. During her acceptance speech, she appeared rather calm and collected. However, when she stepped into the celebratory hall, she started having tears in her eyes. One can see how happy she is to have had won the award.

Her male co-star and good friend, Joseph Cheng was her escort for the entire ceremony. He shadowed her the entire night, from the ceremony to the post-ceremony celebration. Although Joseph was not nominated for this year’s GBA, he was really proud of Ariel when she won the award and is happy for her. In the award ceremony, Joseph kissed Ariel, which goes to cement their partnership as an on-screen couple.
