Press Conference of Jasper Liu and Puff Kuo’s New SETTV Friday Drama

05

Set to replace In A Good Way (我的自由年代), SETTV’s new friday drama Love Meets Cupid (愛情遇見丘比特) held its press conference yesterday and have changed its chinese title to Love Myself or You (喜歡。一個人)  , it’s estimated to premiere on 16th May since it will be following after IAGW.

Jasper Liu‘s (IUUI, Amour et Pâtisserie) new hairstyle is killing me in a bad way… I was like, “Noooooooo!!! SETTV!!! What are you doing to my cute puppy Jasper Liu?” the moment I saw his hair. I’m crying a river of tears right now, I miss his trademark Broccoli head already. His new hairstyle actually looks good in his own selfie but WHY OH WHY they have to style it that way for their press conference?

On the upside, his smile and dimples are as cute as ever soooo… It kinda compensates for everything. Aside from collaborating before in Golden Bell, Puff Kuo (Just You) and Jasper Liu actually share a common friend in real life and that makes them comfortable with each other so I’m not too worried about their chemistry. Puff always have great chemistry with her on-screen partners, whether it’s Yan-J for a commercial, Kun-Da from Inborn Pair, Aaron Yan from Just You or her current We Got Married Global Edition‘s virtual husband, Kim Hee-Chul, they all look cute with her. Puff joked that since Jasper has quite a small face and they’ll be filming in a restaurant with a lot of food, she’ll try her best to control her appetite, she’s skinny though.. Jasper also mentioned that his nickname in the past is cartoon character crayon shinchan as his eyebrows are thick, heh!

The story will revolve around a French cuisine restaurant, I described briefly about their characters but from their press conference, it seems that Puff’s new role will be someone who’s calm, collected and indifferent, not her usual candy-bubbly characters anymore. They’ll be playing as experts in French cuisine and especially went through training for their roles, which explain the picture I saw a few days ago, uploaded by Puff’s manager. As I mentioned earlier, Jasper will be playing as a chef who just returned from France and Puff will be playing as a restaurant manager, not only they’ll be co-workers in the same restaurant but they will also be neighbors. In the beginning, they don’t get along well but feelings starts to grow as they spend more time together. It is revealed in the press conference that the restaurant that Puff and Jasper works belongs to Jasper’s dad and they met before when they were young 20 years ago.

Childhood troupe and bickering couple, there’s nothing fresh about the plot but when they describe Puff’s character to be calm and indifferent, that spiked up my interest as you don’t see much “calm” heroines. I’ll be checking out this drama no matter what just for the cute pairing and hopefully, this will revive the slump in Taiwanese dramas as with the highest rating for Sunday drama is Aaron Yan’s Fall in Love With Me (愛上兩個我) at 1.4 only and the highest rating for Friday drama is IAGW, at 1.80++, it decreased a lot from their usual 2+ ratings, that is a pretty bad average ratings for Tw-dramas.

In the mean time, excuse me while I hide in a corner and mourns for the loss of Jasper Liu’s broccoli head.

Sorry… I just went spazzing and fangirling over my boy, Jasper Liu again. It’s difficult to refrain myself from being a fangirl.

    Even though the original title was more creative, I like that they’re using the word like instead of love in the new title. Taiwan seems to have this inexplicable infatuation with using the word love in their drama titles—it’s getting old, aha. (To this day, I’ve watched ~10 TW-dramas with a lovely title, and frankly, I’m a little embarrassed.)

    Looks like Sean Li and Lene Lai are gonna be in the drama too. I like the former a lot, but the latter… not so much. We’ll see, I guess.

    May 16 is the day after I finish all my big exams. This’ll be the best pat-on-the-back present everrr. ♥ I am so stoked for this that I could cry, both out of excitement and in sadness over Liu Yihao’s missing broccoli head. 😉

      Speaking of the chinese title, it’s actually quite interesting, it’s not 喜歡一個人 (Like Someone) as a phrase, but actually 2 separate words 喜歡。一個人(Like. Alone) or can also be interpreted as Like Someone. The word 一個人 which can mean alone or someone so I’m wondering whether it’s related to the characters, like maybe… they live alone in an apartment or something like that.

      Putting aside his new hairstyle, I’m excited for Jasper to act in an SETTV drama, he’s already quite famous for his handsome looks but SETTV will probably make him a more established actor among mainstream audience.

      I already finished all my big exams and I’m in holiday mode, which is the reason of the rise in post quantities for the past week. Good luck to you!!

        Ah, yeah, I like that about the new Chinese title! But I’m still confused because they didn’t provide any context behind the whole “like someone” and “like to be alone” thing at the press conference. I guess that’ll become clear later on.

        Yup! SETTV is a great stepping stone for rising young actors and actresses, so this is definitely a good career choice for Jasper. And it’s good for me because EYE CANDY. :’)

        Thank you very much!!

    Can’t wait for this drama to come out. I think it will be a new hit this year. Congrats and good luck.

      The average ratings for recent Taiwanese dramas have been relatively low so I’m not sure how well will this do, I’m guessing the ratings should be around the range of Just You but I’m sure this SETTV drama will be the rating leader for the friday timeslot, SETTV dramas are always strong in ratings compared to others.

    This drama seems interesting, I will probably take a peek when it’s out. I do like Puff she’s really cute and charming. I’m also intrigued by Puff’s character description, a leading lady who isn’t obsessively cute/annoying/hyper is already a nice draw factor. I don’t know Jasper but I’m very interested in him now, he’s so cute!!!
