  • Tiffany Hsu is looking hot as a sexy motorbike lady for upcoming PTS 6-episode mini drama, Wake Up (麻醉風暴). I briefly talked about this series previously in my “List of upcoming 2015 Taiwanese dramas” post. Wake Up will be a medical-themed drama that revolves around the lives of anesthetists and their patients. The official drama’s facebook page recently showed preview pictures of the opening theme sequence and I’ll say it looks intriguing! These updates definitely spiked up my interest about this series, I can always count on PTS for unconventional quality dramas. [UDN News]

  • Jasper Liu is busy filming for his upcoming drama, My Ghost Friend (Unofficial English Title) (我的鬼基友). The latest stills of the drama shows him hanging on suspension wire, seemingly to film the scene of his “cause of death”, a car accident. He jokes on his social networking sites, saying that even though hanging on suspension wire is fun, after one whole day on suspension wire, he feels a little bit sad for his “balls” (蛋蛋的憂傷), a literal translation will be pain on his manhood, LOL. Watch the media report for the making of this scene HERE. My Ghost Friend is slated to air somewhere in February on Chinese streaming sites, Youku and Tudou. So far, no specific Taiwanese TV channels is appointed yet for the broadcast. [Et Today] [China Times]
  • Not long after Mr. Right Wanted (徵婚啟示) completed its run, Sonia Sui announces that on 9th january, she registered her marriage with her boyfriend who she dated for less than 6 months in Las Vegas. Her boyfriend, Tony is the older half-brother of Aggie Hsieh, her co-star from The Pursuit of Happiness (愛的生存之道). It seems that she found her Mr. Right in real life, just like in the drama, congratulations to the couple! [China Times]


  • Sonia Sui is embroiled in a love triangle with Christopher Lee and Hans Chung vying for her love in GQ Taiwan magazine (sadly, not in real life, duh). They look amazing and displays their sizzling chemistry in the photoshoots. I love those kiss marks on the men’s faces! I don’t know who’s luckier, Sonia Sui or the men?

  • Probably one of the greatest gossip news of the century in Taiwanese entertainment circle, Dee Hsu (or known as Xiao S), the famous host of long-running Taiwanese talk-show, Kang Xi Lai Le ends her 15 years feud with her ex-boyfriend, also a famous host in Taiwan, Huang Zi-Jiao. I watched this episode and cried with them because their scandal was so huge back in those days. The feud was about Huang Zi-Jiao dumping Dee Hsu for Bowie Tseng and Dee Hsu and her older sister, Barbie Hsu scolds him publicly for his actions on their variety show, 100% Entertainment.The impact of that public scolding was so bad that it affected Huang Zi-Jiao’s reputations and career, even his friends kept a distance with him. In the episode of the show, Dee Hsu reminisces the good times she had with him and how good he treated her and her family. However, when he asked her to break up with him, she became blinded by hatred and forget his goodness and she tearfully apologizes for her rash actions when she was young as she used to view love relationship as everything in her life. Now, a happy mother of 3 daughters, she’s ready to let go of the burden that’s been weighing on her for the past 15 years and ready to start anew in the new year. Huang Zi-Jiao also tearfully thanks everything that she had given him in the past and the past scandal actually became a life lesson to him. What a heart-warming episode! it feels like no grudges can last forever and I feel like I’m watching them maturing up together.
  • Jay Chou and Hannah Quinlivan are looking amazing for their wedding pictorials. The styling feels so classical, giving me the vibe of old European, so pretty! The couple went to Prague, Paris and Germany to shoot for their wedding pictorials.
