Attention, Love! Wrap-Up & Whatnot

The cast are having their wrap-up one by one. So the excitement went up several notches. (Obviously from the picture above.) So, it’s coming together.

Wang Zi recently celebrated his birthday with different fan gathering events. What was more, Qiao Qiao showed up both times to those events, which garnered some praises from Wang Zi. (There were many other friends who showed up to support him too.)

Attention, Love! Many Cute Moments

Since filming began for the drama, there had been many fun moments on set. I had a lot of fun following them. But of course, once again, I’m slow to update. So this post will be dedicated to that.

The cast and crew spent many holidays together since filming, including Valentine’s Day.

Wang Zi even sparked a bit of controversy when he posted the above picture, wanting others to guess who the person was as a Valentine’s Day gag. Of course, fans rushed to answer that it was none other than Qiao Qiao, which was true since they were also filming that day–as stated before.

Of all the special occasions, they also celebrated Qiao Qiao’s birthday on set.

Wang Zi also compimented Qiao Qiao’s hardworking attitude in another post he shared.

They sure had fun, but I hope that the drama would be equally exciting as following the production thus far.

Wang Zi and Qiao Qiao Reunion: Attention, Love!

Wang Zi just posted a message on Facebook saying he had a new project with Qiao Qiao, asking if we were looking forward to it. That was when I went to search for news. (Go here and here for articles.) It had been four years since their collaboration in Ti Amo Chocolate. This was his first project coming back to Taiwan since he had been working in the mainland for the past four years. The drama focused around high school years. It had been awhile since they were students so it might take some used to. However, it seemed like they were up to the challenge. Wang Zi disclosed in the message he posted that his character was Yan Li Zheng (顏力正) and Qiao Qiao’s character was Zhong Xiao Xi (鍾少曦). Apparently, it was also a reunion for the two with Gao Shu Yao, because she was also in Ti Amo Chocolate.

Anyway, they just had the blessing ceremony for the drama. The story supposedly was about how Wang Zi and Qiao Qiao’s characters were in a prearranged marriage and Wang Zi’s character lived with Qiao Qiao’s character’s family since Wang Zi’s character’s parents had already passed away. The basis was mentioned as that. However, if there would be any changes, we’ll just have to wait and see. But I’m wondering if they would sing the main theme together or possibly some other songs in the drama, considering how they had sang together in the past already.

Some other cast members included Huang Xin Di (who had worked with Qiao Qiao in True Love 365), SpeXial’s Riley, Greg Hsu, Zhang Guang Chen, Barry Qu, Carolyn Chen, Xu Fan, and Scott Yang.

Nicholas Teo’s New Album Revealed

phpyho9An
Yes, it’s revealed and Nic’s currently promoting it. It’s called Long Vacation. It’s actually a book and an EP rolled into one. Nice? The title really suits it since he did disappear for a while, studying in the States and then getting involved in some local events. (Click here for the article.) Because it’s a book, there are only 3 songs included, which is fair.

The people mentioned in the book are as follow: Cyndi Wang, Lotus Wang, Michael Wong, Kenji Wu, Steve Chou,  Ah Niu, Amber Kuo, Guo Shu Yao, Landy Wen, Ian Chen, Pink Yang, Evan Yo, Dou Hua Mei – Cai Huang Ru
