PLOT:

Through her senior Vijay's recommendation, Zhen Ai (played by Genie Chuo) finally achieves her wish of joining the travel agency to work as a tour guide and leader. To Zhen Ai, this is her first time, and the day her fate intersects. But, the confused Zhen Ai accidentally mistakes Liu Xin He (played by Leon Jay Williams) as one of her members. Yet, Liu Xin He not only does not blame Zhen Ai or the travel agency, but instead is willing to continue to stay in Zhen Ai's tour group. However, Zhen Ai realises that the reason for this is because he wants to make her life hell. He is simply a devil, treating her as a ‘slave', making her do this and that. Over time, many misunderstandings occur between the 2, like when Zhen Ai accidentally spills her drink on Xin He's pants, making the perfectionist him fire up in anger. And fate even leads them to stay in the same hotel together for a night, making the other members suspicious of the ambiguous relationship between them. Although Zhen Ai tries her hardest to clarify, it seems that she is only making things worse. An accident leads them to fall into ‘The Love River' together and Zhen Ai wonders if fate is playing a joke on her. But what Zhen Ai did not expect is that Liu Xin He is about to become the new boss of the travel agency..

Super fast in making the thread, lol. I read the news and went to look for more info. Fresh pairing indeed.

I have a question though, do you know which station it is under? (GTV - probably not since they have like 4 going, huh? SETTV? Or others?)

Neither GTV nor SETTV I believe

Probably one of those dramas that will film first and then sell to one of the airing channels?
I read that the Government Information Office of Taiwan's High Definition Production something is sponsoring this drama though
Does that mean it might air on PTS? :unsure:

Also read that Genie will be acting as a tour guide while Leon will be the boss of a travel agency.

Thanks for the info. I also did some searching around and saw some bits and pieces of pictures and info appearing on Hunan TV so I'm wondering if it's going to air on that station. But then again, it's still too early for anything, huh? I guess I'm just jumping ahead

Leon Jay Williams will be singing the theme song with Genie Zhuo for their new drama

Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Source: CNA Chinese
Translation: Sarah @ http://asianfanatics.net

After being absent from the Taiwanese drama industry for 2 years, Leon Jay Williams returns once again, and he admitted that he really missed Taiwan's environment. Collaborating with Genie Zhuo for the first time, he says that he is very happy; because 2 months ago, Leon made a private trip to Taiwan, and saw the MV of Genie's new song ‘Love Castle' on TV, and at the time he thought: “This girl is so cute!” Coincidentally, now he has the chance to work with her!

Idol drama ‘River Lovers' began filming on the 18th and this drama will be sponsored by the Government Information Office High-Definition Programme. The story tells of newbie tour guide Genie meeting Leon, who plays the boss of a travel agency and conflict arises between them. Of course, the drama will also have its warm and romantic lovey-dovey parts.

Towards Leon again challenging the role of a ‘little boss', is he worried that there is no breakthrough or being stereotyped to that role? He smiled in reply, saying that he was first introduced to Taiwanese idol dramas as that role, and after leaving for 2 years, he hopes that he can let everyone experience that familiar feeling again.

As for Genie, she will have many breakthroughs. Acting as a tour guide, not only must she not be afraid of looking ugly, she also cannot worry about accidentally exposing herself, because many of the scenes will be filmed in scenic areas with high wind, but she still has to wear a skirt. Towards this, she replied: “Well if it really happens, then just count it as everyone's luck!”

Because the drama's background is ‘travelling', naturally they will be heading all around Taiwan for filming. Mainly they will film in Kaohsiung, but the drama crew will also be touring the rest of Taiwan. And Genie hopes that after filming this drama, she will have the chance to be Taiwan's tourism ambassador. Other than this, Genie also revealed that, in the first episode, she will have an ‘intimate' scene with Leon. The 2, who are both AB blood type are extremely anticipating their collaboration, and Leon says he is very excited about singing the theme song together.


hmm I did some surfing too.. kinda hard to find more info at this point. hopefully more news will come soon.. but at least we have an idea of what the storyline is and what role leon & genie are playing.. I think the storyline sounds okay.. a bit cliche with the conflict arising as soon as they meet, and surprise surprise leons playing a boss again.. but I think the travelling thing is interesting :)

yeah I dont think its gonna be airing on GTV or SETTV.
vicki, I think it could be PTV, since its government sponsored and all, but dunno, and I'm wondering who the director is? and oh that other guy.. do u know who he is? cuz he looks real familiar but I cant remember..

^yeah, i wikied him too and the picture doesn't look like the guy in the photo ^_^*
But there was one news on the press conference more focused on Remus. Getting him to respond to some rumors of him and Tian Xin being together etc
So I'm guessing its most likely him.

Oh and that 2nd girl is someone called 何姵蓓.

Hmmm... so we don't even know what channel this is going to air on?

But Black & White will be done on this Friday on PTS, and a new drama will takes it's place, but is this drama really ready to air? They just has their costume fitting. It doesn't seem like they'd have something in a week's time. And does PTS air dramas as they're being filmed?

Plus, isn't it weird for PTS to have all of these "Idol" dramas. Now I wouldn't really call Starlit and B&W "Idol" dramas, but they're not the regular dramas to run on the station either, right?

Well, I'm looking forward to this none-the-less. I really liked Leon in My Lucky Star, so I hope to see him in this if it proves interesting!

While the majority is obscure... PTS has often had some big names take part in shows or TV movies for them. They are of a deeper subject matter and low budget though so they are never very popular, especially on the internet and among fansubbers.

Leon and Genie is an interesting pair. Very new. I like that.
Sort of a vague plot description so far though.

^ heeeey thanks!! I'll translate it:

I'm in Kaohsiung, fine weather
Already started to film idol drama lo~
We're currently in Kaohsiung
Kaohsiung really is very summertime
Nice and sunny
When taking photos, all I can say is: colour is very pure, very thick
Looks very happy~
Hehe~
I must keep adding oil lo~
Going to film drama now..

btw, Leon says that this dramas gonna be airing on PTV ^_^
he said that since he's been absent from the idol drama industry for a while, he feels quite apologetic to his fans, he doesn't wanna be involved in TV stations' competition (suppose hes talking bout SETTV and GTV ^_^* ) so he chooses to be more low-key, and go for a TV station that places importance on quality and not publicity.. as to respect his fans and all..

I think thats pretty reasonable.. I like PTV :)
but the bad thing is that it might be harder to find news & stuff, and less promotions..

i'm really excited about Leon returning to Tw dramas. I thought he has been doing so well in China in feature films like Almost Perfect and Jump and doing a lot of modelling etc over there, so I thought maybe he would never return to Taiwanese drama series. Also, some fans are very critical of his less than perfect Chinese and seemed to hold that against him.
I think River Lovers sounds very enjoyable and I don't mind if Leon plays a boss again, because before he has played the heir to big corporations and this travel agency sounds more low key than that.
I'll look forward to seeing all the different sites in Taiwan that they travel to!

Oh my!!! I freakin ADORE their outfits!!! <3 This drama looks like it's going to be so cute! I can't wait until we get some more BTS stuff like videos, etc.

Did we say this was going to be a PTS drama or a SETTV drama?! The fact that it's promoting tourism makes it sound like it's for PTS... but I can't remember.

I think Leon and Genie are looking really cute together in everything we see! This scene looks like it's going to be funny!

Really, IN LOVE with the outfits!!!

(Also, it seems like Leon is having to carry Genie A LOT. Good thing she's so small!)

Leon Jay Williams rushed to hospital; filming until vomiting

Posted Image

Source: Liberty Times
Translation: Sarah @ http://asianfanatics.net

Leon Jay Williams & Genie Zhuo have recently been filming their new drama in Kaohsiung, but unfortunately have been hit by diarrhoea, and almost half of the 30 drama crew have been rushed to hospital. The day before yesterday, Leon was up 4 times during the night vomiting, and had to get an emergency drip in the middle of the night.

The summer has arrived, and Leon and Genie have been busy filming their new drama ‘River Lovers'. During the past few days, they've had to run around the whole of Taiwan, travelling to places such as Sun Moon Lake and Ilan. However, the intense heat has taken a toll on them, causing them to suffer from a heat stroke and Gastroenteritis. Plus, Leon has been having a poor appetite, and also suffering from diarrhoea. At the worst, he had to get up 4 times during the night to vomit, and while he's filming, he's constantly rushing to the toilet; he's really exhausted to the extent of collapse.

Now that he has a break from filming, Leon has earned himself a holiday. On the 30th of this month, he will celebrate his 33rd birthday. The drama crew celebrated for him early, and invited a muscle man wearing only his underwear. This made Leon burst into laughter, and got rid of some of the pain he got from being sick. It's been 4 years since he's celebrated his birthday with his mother, and he said this time he will go back to Singapore to celebrate with his family.

Leon Jay Williams has a thread under Taiwanese male idols, even tho he is originally from Singapore. He has had leading roles in other dramas, including Heaven's Wedding Gown and Green Light Forest, and a supporting role in My Lucky Star. A few months back I wrote a profile of him on my blog:Leon Jay Williams: from Rags to Riches in Singlish

I think Leon will be good in River Lovers. I think he has chemistry with Genie already!

Hmmm maybe I'm the odd one out, but I find that pink overall outfit Genie is wearing... well it makes her look like a 5 year-old. And then with Leon carrying her... more so. lol

I hope her character isn't one of those unbelievably naive girls. You know... the, "I'm in my twenties, I'm very pretty, and everyone likes me... but for some reason I've never had a boyfriend or heard the words kiss or sex before." Innocent I can handle. Stupid... not as much.

I agree Puppet Princess sometimes the writers make the girl TOO naive for this day and age but at least Genie's character has a job and a career and all that.
