OH. MY. GOD! Two talented and uprising Taiwanese actors, Chris Wang (Love Family, Love Me or Leave Me) and Lego Lee (In A Good Way) are confirmed as the male leads of the upcoming Friday SETTV’s drama, Aim High (22K夢想高飛). Set to start filming at the end of September and to follow after Pleasantly Surprised (喜歡 . 一個人), Aim High is said to be a story about rookies who just enter the workfield. The tone is said to be in between Office Girls (小資女孩向前衝) and In A Good Way (我的自由年代), I’m thinking that the tone they’re referring to is the motivational and aspirational tone of both dramas.
Now onto the biggest question, who will be the actress to act alongside with them? I think both Chris Wang and Lego Lee are charismatic and solid actors so I’m hoping that the actress who will be the female lead will have strong charms like them or at least have decent acting if not she’ll definitely be overshadowed by them. Hmm… I can’t seem to think of any actress that cross my mind when both Chris Wang and Lego Lee are mentioned, let’s hope SETTV’s taste in picking the lead actress is as good as their taste in picking the lead actors.
Both Chris Wang and Lego Lee had their breakthrough roles in SETTV dramas, The Fierce Wife (犀利人妻) and In A Good Way respectively so I think SETTV have a knack in creating success for their cast as long as the script is good so I’m hoping that Aim High will replicate the same success for them. Although Chris Wang shot to fame earlier than Lego Lee, both are considered established actors so I’m wondering what role will they take and which male lead is more important than the other, I’m guessing Chris Wang may have the more important role as his recent movie Twa-Tiu-Tiann (大稻埕) was a success. Or…. will SETTV pull the Black & White (痞子英雄) double male-lead formula for Aim High? Either way, for some reason, both actors give me similar vibe and they look great together, I’m excited!
