Rainie = Momo = House girl
Character too quiet
Last year Rainie was in the drama [Miss No Good] and her character Jiang Xiao Hua was very lively; this year she has another new drama [Together] airing. This character is very different to Rainie's previous roles. Rainie says that this is the most different and most quiet character. Rainie: "In the drama I am called Chen Momo. This character is not like me at all. She is too introverted and doesn't know how to express her emotions unlike me; when she is angry or sad, she will cry to fix the problem but I definitely wouldn't do that; also, I am more lively, she is just sad. The only similarity I have with my character is probably that we both like to stay at home!"
Likes to play with her dog at home
Rainie who admits that she is a house girl, says her idea of "house girl" is different from others! Rainie: "When I'm at home, I don't watch cartoons. I love to spend time on the sofa at home then play with my dog. If my dog is asleep, I will wake it up, play with it for a while then let it sleep, then wake it up to play again. Even though I don't like to watch cartoons, I used to watch [Fushigi Yuuki], the story involves travelling between different dimensions, love and fighting. I like watching fantasy and cartoons about things that would be less likely to happen in real life." Rainie this house girl, is indeed very special. We just feel sorry for her dog Yumi that never gets a good sleep!
A slap with left hand
Filming the drama [Together], Rainie said that every scene was unforgettable. However, there was a scene where she "tricked" Da Dong that was especially unforgettable. Rainie: "There was a scene where I had to slap Da Dong. When we were rehearsing for it, I was always slapping him with my right hand. However, just before filming, the director told me to use my left hand to slap Da Dong in order to capture his natural emotions. Everyone there knew I was using my left hand but we weren't allowed to tell Da Dong. At the time, I was very nervous because we had never rehearsed using left hand and my left hand had always been very stupid. I was going to say, if we were to NG then the plan would be ruined so there was a lot of pressure on me! In the end when we were filming for real, I really used my left hand to slap him and once the director yelled cut, Da Dong very cutely asked, 'How come you used your left hand?' So I think the director was very smart, testing my reaction but also capturing Da Dong's natural side."
Da Dong doesn't have a temper
Speaking of fellow cast member Da Dong, the first thing Rainie says is that he is more feminine than a girl! The degree of care he puts into his appearance is far greater than hers. Rainie: "In this drama, I pretty much don't wear make-up and I'm always wearing a wig. However, Jiro really cares about his looks, always fixing it up and looking in the mirror. Even though this time he was acting as a superstar, I've heard that even when he's not, he is still like that. Once I said to him: 'You love to look good so much, I'm gonna expose you on some variety show!' But in the end he said: 'You don't have to expose me, the whole world already knows.' Even though I was unsuccessul in exposing him, I think that it's good that he doesn't deny it, after all he's not doing anything bad!
"Also, Da Dong gets along very well with others; I haven't had the chance to see him get angry. It's like he doesn't have express that whole range of emotions, he is very peaceful. I really wanna see what he looks like when he's angry!"
Emotional scenes to the point he had no voice
Rainie says that Da Dong has a very good temper, his EQ (emotional quotient) is high; whether this is a good or bad thing, she feels that Da Dong should let go more! However, one time Rainie finally saw Da Dong cry until he had no voice! Rainie: "There was one crying scene that left me very surprised because Da Dong kept saying that he couldn't do crying scenes. There was one scene where his mother cooks a bowl of noodles for him; Da Dong sees the letter his mother has written for him and then sits there crying. From the side, I saw just his back plus sounds of crying and I already cried. Later, the director yelled 'Cut' but Da Dong couldn't stop crying. I've never seen him like that. After yelling 'Cut' he still couldn't stop, I was completely shocked. Because I've never experienced not being able to stop crying after a crying scene, I think he must have been thinking of something very sad at the time."
House guys have their advantages
This Valentine's Day, Rainie will have a new romantic idol drama airing. Rainie who loves work, will be working on Valentine's Day. Talking about her ideal lover, Rainie says that house guys are no problem because she quite likes to stay at home herself. She even said that they were good because they won't go out to get to know other girls and muck around. As long as it's not to the point that he doesn't want to communicate with her, it's all okay! However, Rainie can't really accept home guys that like to cosplay female characters. They can only cosplay male ones!
Rainie: "If he cosplays a girl, I can't accept that but he can cosplay a guy. In fact, I know a few people who like to cosplay but when they aren't cosplaying, they dress quite normally. As long as he is not too much in love with the character, I'm okay with it. My most unforgettable Valentine's Days are all the ones without a Valentine. One year when I was single, we finished work early and then all the single people went out to sing. Drinking a little and singing some sad songs, it was still quite cheerful."
Jiro Wang = Mars = Celebrity going downhill
The most emotional scenes
Now for Da Dong! This time Da Dong's character Zhuang Jun Nan (Mars) is also very different to his previous roles. This time he is acting as an unpopular artist but he is actually very kind. It's just that he entered the entertainment industry very early and enjoyed his success, so he became selfish, proud and didn't know how to treasure things, causing his career to go downhill.
Da Dong: My character is a superstar. Once he meets the house girl, she changes his life and he learns to cherish more. This character has many emotional scenes, lots of crying scenes, making it very hard for me. However, because of these crying scenes, I feel a very big sense of achievement." Da Dong says that this character is mostly unlike him because he is arrogant and selfish. The one thing they do have in common however, is that they work very hard for the benefit of their family. Da Dong: "It doesn't matter whether I'm happy, unhappy or injured. In front of my family, I will always make myself look healthy, happy and lively, hoping that my mum will think that I'm doing great."
Kissing for full five minutes
Everyone knows that Da Dong is a very filial son but they may not know the details about Da Dong and Rainie's kiss scene, let's wait for Da Dong to tell us about it himself! Da Dong: The first kiss scene is at school, I have to force a kiss onto her. I was very nervous when I was filming this, not knowing what to do. Because she has a petite figure, I had to lower my head to kiss her. Slowly getting into that scene, I touched her [lips] a bit. Afterwards she laughed saying, 'You even shake when kissing!'"
Da Dong also said that the director wanted many different angles of the kiss scene so they had to kiss many times, "I was really shy!" Da Dong: At the very end there is also a kiss scene, sitting in a boat on the lake. Originally it was meant to be romantic but the director said we should keep kissing as if no-one's watching while the director captured the scene himself. We kept kissing and kissing and kissed for a long time, it was probably five minutes, until we didn't know what we were doing! But the director didn't yell cut so we had no choice but to keep kissing to the point we were kissing and chatting at the same time."
Giving each other nicknames
Ethan Ruan said that when he films kiss scenes, he very easily feels closer to the other person. Da Dong and Rainie have so many "special kisses", their relationship must be pretty good! Da Dong: "Rainie is very professional, dedicated and amazing. She has taken on the role of many different characters and this time actually seeing her act, I think that she can act very well. Before I got to know her, I thought she was lively, carefree and lifts up the mood in a group of people but afterwards, I discovered that when she goes out, she is very quiet. I think she is quite attractive to others, like a little lady." Da Dong compliments Rainie non-stop and personally, they even created nicknames for each other. Rainie calls Da Dong "Cha Cong" [叉蔥] while Da Dong calls Rainie "Gu Ji" [姑雞] and even mentioned that when they are acting cute, they'll even put on couple expressions!
Da Dong very much a house guy
In the drama, Da Dong has many emotional scenes while Rainie's body must suffer. There is a scene where Rainie jumps into the water to save Da Dong; Rainie had to keep jumping in for a few hours and even got sick in the end! Da Dong: She is willing to make sacrifices for acting. Just like that jumping in the water scene, even though it was cold, as a girl, she still had to keep jumping in."
Da Dong really admires Rainie's professional spirit but Rainie calls herself #1 house girl, so does Da Dong likes house girls? Da Dong: "I wouldn't not accept. The two of us staying at home together, we could rent movies to watch. I quite like the feeling of a world with only two people." Also, Rainie doesn't really like people who cosplay but turns out Da Dong really likes to cosplay! Da Dong: "Personally I like to collect models/figurines and have also cosplayed before. For example, I've dressed up as visual kei people as well as characters from [天使之烈士], Shota no Sushi [将太の寿司], Mr. Fighting [格鬥天王], The King of Fighters [格鬥天王], etc. I can even make my own costumes, wings, feathers and all.
Da Dong loves surprises!
Whether Da Dong and Rainie are compatible, only they will know first! However Da Dong said that if Rainie was his girlfriend, he would plan a surprise for Valentine's Day! Da Dong: "I will give her what she wants. Beforehand I will go shopping with her and ask her what girls like, pretending she's helping me look for a gift for another girl. A few days before Valentine's Day, I will purposely not call her, pretending to distance myself from her. Then on Valentine's Day, just before the day ends I will find her and give her the gift she chose." Da Dong is quite thoughtful and seeing how romantic he is, if he had a lover right now, his Valentine's Day will definitely be as romantic as can be.
Da Dong: "I will first arrange a time with her but then get to her house earlier. Downstairs from her house, I will prepare a very large bouquet of flowers for her. Then carry the flowers and go shopping, letting the whole world know that she has a handsome boyfriend who gives her big bouquets of flowers. Then we'll have a lover's set meal, watch a movie, shop, admire the night scenery and light fireworks!" Da Dong is so romantic, any girl would love him! Rainie shouldn't not want to be [Together] with Da Dong, right!
