Both Joe and Ariel are dog lovers, once they see a cute dog, they will surely approach the dog to play with it. Ariel and little cutie are equally important, but in terms of fur, and the head of little cutie had a tied bunch of “zong tian pao”, it is very obvious Ariel is the smaller one compared to little cutie.

Gemini & Scorpio
When Gemini and Scorpio come together in a love affair, they'll need to learn to understand and accept one another's differences -- and if they can, they will be a nearly unbreakable couple. Where Gemini is adaptable, intellectual, outgoing and chatty, Scorpio tends to be secretive, focused, intense and determined. Gemini tends to take things lightly, including their lover; Scorpio, on the other hand, has a very deep need for emotional connection and intimacy. Scorpio is generally very loyal to their lover and very connected to the relationship.
This relationship tends to be highly passionate and can often be characterized by arguments; Gemini loves a good debate, considering it the epitome of mental stimulation, and that characteristic Gemini flirtatiousness tends to grate on Scorpio's jealous, possessive nerves. Despite these differences, however, this is no dull relationship. Both Signs love to take chances and spice it up! They have lots of adventures together, but if things get too tense and arguments start to turn negative, they must make the effort to reconcile if they value the relationship and want it to last.
Gemini is ruled by the Planet Mercury (Communication) and Scorpio is dually ruled by the Planets Mars (Passion) and Pluto (Power). Scorpio is generally quite concerned with sexual and emotional intimacy; they need much reassurance that their lover values the relationship as much as they do. Thank goodness, then, for Gemini's excellent communicative abilities; the Twins should have no trouble communicating their dedication to the Scorpion -- if it's dedication they feel. Gemini can't and won't fake a commitment they don't feel, so intense Scorpio must learn to back off a bit. Gemini will certainly make a commitment to a love relationship, but only if they're free to do so on their own, not coerced into it.
Gemini is an Air Sign and Scorpio is a Water Sign. These two elements can be a great combination; after all, the best decisions are made when they incorporate the intellect (Air) and the emotions (Water) -- the mind and the heart. The trick, of course, is getting these two elements to work in tandem. Scorpio is a master strategist; if there's a decision to be made or a project at hand, they can help flighty Gemini focus on the best options. Gemini, in turn, teaches Scorpio to let go and move on when their efforts are thwarted. There is a downside to these two elements' union, however; Scorpio's emotional manipulations can prove to dampen Gemini's natural energy and enthusiasm. Also, airy Gemini can leave Scorpio's deep waters feeling choppy, rough and disturbed.
Gemini is a Mutable Sign and Scorpio is a Fixed Sign. Gemini tends to do things on a whim, just for the experience, contrary to Scorpio, who almost always has a plan (or an ulterior motive) in mind. Scorpio can use their focus and determination to help teach Gemini the value in finishing things before jumping headlong into the next experience. Once these two begin to understand that they can enjoy a satisfying relationship -- Gemini providing the reasoning and brain power and Scorpio bringing their healthy dollop of sex appeal, emotionalism and passion -- they can enjoy a truly mutually satisfying relationship.
What's the best aspect of the Gemini-Scorpio relationship? The strength they have when they function as a unit. They are both winners who refuse to give up, making theirs a relationship that never settles for second best.

Q: What kind of personality attracts you?

On that day, late in the night, Ariel and Joe were filming a kiss scene at Yang Ming Shan. Joe and Ariel fight against the cold weather of 5 degree temperature, wearing only short sleeves and thin blouse. Both of their clothes had a warmer bag in it. Ariel, who is very afraid of cold, had come prepared. She had added a 10,000 dollars high class winter pants in her short skirt. Seeing Ariel cold until she is shivering, Joe gave his jacket and used it to cover Ariel, to keep her away from cold air.

I: What type of girl suits you best and can become the princess of your heart?
J: I think the most important thing is that she must be cheerful (optimistic)...... The second quality is filial piety. Appearance must be clean and neat and hair does not need to be long and flowing. As for dressing, she should have her own style. I admire girls who are individuals in their behaviour and thinking. I do not fall in love at first sight; I must know a girl for some time before I develop feelings for her. If I meet someone I like, I will initiate and express liking for her. If the attraction is mutual and we have other chances to meet and interact, relationship may change to become that of boyfriend and girlfriend.

I: You've acted with a lot of female actresses, who do you think is most compatible with you?
J: I think it's Ariel Lin. Because we are not close in real life, our contact with each other is limited to sms messages and phone calls. But when we are filming, we can very easily understand each other and the feelings we are portraying in the roles we play. She is very intelligent. I feel most comfortable working with her. Back and forth, we interact and pick up from each other well. This kind of relationship will help us grow faster as actors.
I: You have acted in so many TV serials, which role do you think suits you best? Or which role has been most challenging for you?
J: Frankly, I like every role I have played. But if I were to choose one, I would choose the role (ZHI SHU} in ‘It started with a kiss'. Because this role in ‘ISWAK' can be considered my defining work since I first started acting. [I think he means it's the best work he's done so far and is uniquely his creation i.e. the work that defines him; the work he's most associated with] Because the director was the same director as ‘The Rose', I grew a lot as an actor in this serial. My growth as an actor can been seen in the serial. As to my acting, the director would give me a lot of constructive comments. So this role, can be considered the role that I independently created for myself.
[2006.09.21] She wants a guy which is manly and yet childish, Ariel's not sure how her ideal boyfriend would be.
[東方日報] 既要男人味又要孩子氣 林依晨擇偶矛盾孤伶伶
Ariel was initially supposed to film her new drama, Legend of Condor Hero, at Heng Dian. But due to Hu Ge (Guo Jing) being injured in a car accident, the whole filming team had no choice but to stop work, and because of this, Ariel (Huang Rong) has an extra empty schedule. Ariel doesn't avoid mentioning that she wishes to have a boyfriend who could share her problems with, but due to her, still unable to make up her mind on what kind of a boyfriend she wants, she still has yet to find one that suits her.
Ariel has always given people an impression of a lively and carefree person. Actually she has also cried in the past due to over stress. Although there were many supports from her fans, she still feels lonely deep inside. Ariel doesn't avoid mentioning that she wishes to have a boyfriend who can accompany her and share problems with one another. But for now, she has not come across a suitable person, and added that she is still not sure what her ideal boyfriend would be. She likes a boyfriend who is manly and yet childish at the same time. So it's not easy to come across a man with such personalities.

QUOTES from JDA01:
cause my aunt works at a network in taiwan.. but i wont tell where.. she said that talkshows are scripted.. she also said that joe is really handsome..

my aunt says when joe was asked about a girl or about relationships and the like.. he's shy to answer those kind of question and say that work is his priority as of now.. but then he admitted that he likes someone and it makes us a little bit confuse..

Joe Cheng saw Lin Mama crying, and teased her on purpose :" let me have Ariel, i'll take care of her for the rest of my life." Lin Mama was crying even harder when she heard that, she said while wiping her tears :" If someday Ariel really did get married, I dont think i'll let her go. But Ariel was being calm, she said that she wont want such complicated marrying ceremony. She thinks that she looks kinda special in a Chi-Pao, and hopes that she could act in a series that takes place in the Republic of China (which is around 1912 or something like that)

"The reporter asked Joe about the possibilities of him and Yi Chen developing a relationship and Joe answered there might be and might not be...sometimes reaching the state beyond friendship needs ignition point BUT between me and her there's a lot of room for development. Ariel answered Joe is very nice person...working together too is very joyful. Nobody knows what can happen in the future. At the moment, we are all good friends."

Joe Cheng and Ariel Lin filmed another wedding scene in ISWAK 2. While he acts cool in the show, once the camera stops rolling, his crazy personality shows. He insisted that Ariel make funny poses with him, both of them even raised their hands forming "YA" and even touched the tips of their fingers together in a weird pose, causing the entire crew to laugh uncontrollably. Joe even said mischievously, "don't you know this is the Qi Long Zhu He Ti?" (sorry, dunno how to translate this)
Counting form ISWAK 1 to ISWAK 2, Joe and Ariel have in total worn wedding attire 6 times, hence everyone says they are the on-screen couple with the most wedding scenes. "Imagine if Ariel and I were to really get married, we would probably get more sponsers then we could count!" Joe says dreamily, like wedding boutiques, wedding cakes, cars, houses and even baby products.." alot of money to earn"
Joe and Ariel head to Guam for ISWAK 2's honeymoon scenes, filming even included the wedding of the other couple (Aisha and the other guy..whatshisname) Due to the request of the director, Ariel and Joe too put on wedding attire, making crazy poses. The two of them have worn wedding attire 6 times for ISWAK, making it a record for reel couples.
Because of additional scenes, the couple have worn wedding attire 6 times since ISWAK started filming, including the first press conference for ISWAK 2 and the promotions in JApan. Joe laughs and says that if he were to really marry Ariel, they would get more advertisements then they could count! Ariel on the other hand says, her dream honeymoon would be to go to Canada to view the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), but seeing the beauty of Guam this time, she feels rather touched too..

Due to the filming of GTV's “It Started with a Kiss Sequel”, Joe Cheng and Ariel went to a resort's chapel in Guam to film the wedding ceremony scenario. Being an extra scene to spice up the entire serial, both of them did not feel any pressure during the filming process. Joe Cheng even jokingly gave a pose of him hugging Ariel saying, “This is the seven dragon pearls joined together into one body.”

When asked about his love life (whether he is dating or not), Joe PAUSED and thought for a moment, then POINTED to Ariel who was standing beside him, "She's MY WIFE. I am too busy filming Kiss 2, don't have time to date. Besides, I am married to her."
Then the reporters jokingly asked Joe if he would return to Ariel's house (since Joe said he's married to her). Joe replied, "Well, you will have to ask Ariel on that...since I need her permission." Ariel laughed and quickly said, "Ok, no problem at all! I will prepare dinner for him!"

Joe: With Lin Yichen, actually in private, we will talk about things like movies, extra-curricular reading… Like just normal books that we read. And we also talk about stuff like nutrition, health and life in general. So these topics… We do have quite a lot of topics to talk about.
Ariel: I just returned him a book as well as the Jolin Tsai's 'Di Tai'… Right, we went to watch it together. And the male and female leads were there crying like nobody's business.

In the function, Joe played the “code-message” again
There was a game during function.
Two lucky fans were drawn to play with Ariel & Joe in two teams.
Each team has to write a love letter to the others.
Ariel's team: the fans wrote the letter and Ariel put some “heart shape” sticker on it.
The fans wrote: hope Joe will release music album in coming future.
Joe's team: JOE wrote the letter : To 依晨：我是你的樹，希望這是你自在的家
To Ariel (really Ariel, not XQ)
I'm yours SHU, hope you feel most comfortable with this home (He drew a TREE as the background, this tree the "home")
-vanila's account on ArJoe's HK ISWAK promo (09.Jul.2007)
Ariel's message to Joe on his Birthday Bash (18.June.2007)
XQ: My dear hubby
Ariel:let me get back to myself (she was talking like XQ)
I wish from the bottom of my hear that you can have great accomplishments/advances in both your life and your career.
And if you work for it you can get what you want.
Also treasure everyone around you, such as people from (Joe's official fansite), or your real families. They are all very important.
And thank you for taking such good care of me, even though I'm a bit chubby
Hope I'm still the same good XQ in ZS's heart
"But these are only some random thoughts of mine lah, love and happiness is the world's super magical supernatural powers!"
