In order to increase ratings, Rainie Yang gave Jiro Wang a kiss in front of everyone at last night's premiere screening of "Together", breaking rumours that they weren't getting along. Rainie even generously explaining the matter on behalf of Jiro, "I'm also a singer/actor and I know the suffering. In the future, he will be at every promotion event."
Yesterday, CTV and GTV's idol drama "Together" took up the entire cinema for their premiere screening. In the drama, Jiro Wang will have kiss scene, bed scene and even reveals his upper body, causing fans to scream continuously, clearly trying to out-compete rival stations and not give them the advantage. Yesterday the media asked Jiro what his opinion was of Ethan Ruan and he implicitly replied, "We acted in [Hana Kimi] and lived in Puli together, so we're friends and will support each other!" When asked whether she will choose to watch [Defeated Queen] or [Together], Ethan Ruan's girlfriend Tiffany Hsu who is also a cast member, hesitated and said, "It's the first episode so of course I'll watch the new drama. Then I'll choose to watch the better drama when repeats air!"
Yesterday Jiro gave Rainie a cap that he had painted a golden ox on, as a Valentine's Day gift. Rainie being very touched, gave him a kiss and even asked the fans, "Can I?" While Jin Qin who acts as Jiro's agent in the drama, openly confessed to Jiro, "I really love Da Dong, or else I wouldn't be able to cry during the crying scenes." This caused Rainie to quickly say, "Why did you say that? Tomorrow's news headlines will all be about you!"
Because previously [Rolling Love]'s ratings were not great, releasing a new drama, Jiro admits that he is under a lot of pressure. In the drama, he acts as an idol who is no longer popular while Rainie Yang acts as an antisocial girl. She thinks that the tones of [Together] and SETTV's [Defeated Queen] are very different; whoever gets first place will naturally "have very good value".
George Hu who was involved in a motorcycle accident only recently, came to the premiere holding crutches. Looking evidently skinnier and hopping on one leg, he said, "After the injury, my appetite wasn't great. I have to rest for three months and slowly recover." [Together] will begin airing Feb 15 10pm on CTV and repeat Feb 21 9pm GTV.
