Vic Zhou_Zhou Yu Min_Hot Star

I have been watching lately movies or T-dramas starring Vic Zhou (n1981) of F4 fame, although I have not completely watched Meteor Garden 1, his debut drama.  He starred here as HWa Zhi Lei, which in the Taiwan version is an autistic guy (??). He was supposed to be 19 years old then. 

I have finished watching Silence (2006)and Mars (2004). I have not finished watching Sweet Relationship (2007) and Love storm (2003) since I am awaiting the subs on Mysoju.  I find Vic hot, although I don’t understand why because the Filipino comedian whom he reminds me of (Vic Sotto) was never my idol, nor did I see any of his film or watched his TV shows continuously.  But there is something about the guy that appeals to me–maybe his soft voice, or his hairstyle, his eyes  or his smile (he has a dimple).  I thought he had lost weight in  Sweet Relationship (which I don’t find appealing at all) and had caused his cheeks to become sallow.  Fanblogs say that he had just broken off with Barbie Hsu last January 2008, whom he had dated for two and a half years, after filming Mars (Barbie was his co-star). I don’t know how popular he is in Taiwan, but he is one of the most prolific in terms of making dramas among the Asian stars whom I consider hot (think Mike He, Lee Dong Wook, Joo Ji Hoon, Lee Ji Hoon). On the average, he has at  least one drama a year;not to mention several recordings.  He has a recent drama (Wish to See You Again, 2008) which was recently subbed and uploaded on MYsoju (episode one, that is).

about silence, taiwan drama

Just finished watching “Silence” starring Vic Zhou and Park Eun-Hye.  This is my first time to watch a sad love story where I know the lead actor would die–as early as the fifth episode, the lead already knew he had a terminal illness  (In “Love Contract” it was implied that the lead stars committed suicide, but I didn’t know the ending till I got there.)  Why did I watch it? Because I found Vic Zhou “hot” and Park Eun-hye “beautiful.”  Problem is, there was not much “chemistry” between the two.  I got pretty bored as I found the scenes dragging and the comments from the crunchyroll watchers not so encouraging.  I found Park’s role as a mute but feisty Korean based in Taiwan as very “convenient”; she didn’t have to speak Chinese. Honestly, I only watch “dramas” of the romantic comedy genre, with the plot revolving around main characters in their very late teens or early 20s.  Watching these dramas are ‘stress busters’, so the more unrealistic, the better.  I had avoided watching these kinds of dramas in my youthful days, as I was into more serious stuff.  Now that I am near that point called “middle age”, I enjoy the less serious stuff.
