Another candidate for this saga, lol. Quite deserving too.
Calm, Cool, and Collected: Lan Xi Ying (from Black & White). There were some who criticized her for her dead eyes and boring expressions, saying that she should stick to modeling. And I couldn’t disagree more. Seriously, that was how her character was. She was the type who didn’t jump up and down or scream or panic when things happened. Considering how her job was, it fitted. She couldn’t be easily upset or worked up over stuff. She needed to stay calm and analyze the evidence. It wasn’t like she didn’t know how to laugh or cry or joke. At least she was one of the rare ones that found Pi Zi funny with his jumpiness at first when they met in her lab.
Sophisticated Yet Complicated Writer: Ding Xiao Wei aka Endless Rain (from Wayward Kenting). Again, it could never satisfy people with whatever role she took on since I again see people criticizing her for such a role. What does it say then? She’s just versatile in picking her role. Unlike the so-called ones who others support for keeping taking ‘flashy’ roles to shine, she takes on many challenges along the way with different roles. This one was quite daring for some people’s taste. But it fitted in with the rest of the characters of the story, some of them were sunshine–others tainted by their past and needed to find the courage or a reason to move on.
Kind of Random BUT still cute: Fang Yong Yong (from Sunny Happiness). Really hardworking and all, but wasn’t a doormat. She had quite a sharp tongue in there and was at times hilarious–without even trying.
Mad Crazy, ALMOST Maniac: He Ya Gong (from Honey & Clover). She was scary in there, lol. Just plain crazy! Okay, maybe at the beginning since things got quite serious later. But she managed to show another set of personalities. It was hard to hate her in there, even if at times it seemed there were mixed feelings going on between different pairings. It was a mad drama anyway so it was hard to predict with where it was going (except if you read the manga, lol). But still, no one knew how the Taiwanese adaptation of the drama would be until the end.
Favorite Male Co-Star: Vic Chou. I wouldn’t mind if they work on another project together. They only ended up once in Tea Fight. Then I had hoped that they ended up together in Black & White through my analytical post from last year. I still haven’t finished Home yet so I can’t tell for that one.
2nd Favorite Male Co-Star: Eddie Peng. I used to really love this pairing but somehow they faded for me when Vic came into the picture. So yes, after that, Eddie just has to take the 2nd spot in regards to Janine’s pairings. I still loved them in Wayward Kenting and then eventually briefly somewhat in Honey & Clover. Very cute and funny together.
3rd Favorite Male Co-Star: Joe Cheng. YES, even if Honey & Clover was quite crazy and random at times, but I loved them in there. And the fact that I haven’t started on You Light Up My Star yet wouldn’t qualify me for discussing more them, lol. I need to do major catch up, once again.
4th Favorite Male Co-Star: Mike He.
She’s very intelligent, no doubt about it. Her educational background said it all. Not only that, but she seemed to exude the intelligent aura naturally. It also seemed like her sense of fashion is quite good as well. (Except for some occasions, but understandable.)
