Instagram Updates: Happy One Year Anniversary Pleasantly Surprised 喜歡·一個人! Pleasantly Crew hang out at the beach for Verna Pei's Birthday!

Happy One Year Anniversary, Pleasantly Surprised!!! I miss Puff and Jasper and the Figaro Crew. But it's good to know they still hang out together...for how much longer, I don't know, as my favourite stars go off to do their own projects. But I'm glad to see they still have a strong friendship. I feel like it'll be one that will last in the industry and even if they do drift apart, it'll be a friendship that they'll easily pick up again when they have the chance to unite!

Anyway, recently, the Pleasantly Surprised crew had a big beach trip minus Jolin, Yorke and Jasper who were all filming on the day - Jasper for When I See You Again and Jolin and Yorke for Murphy's Law of Love. Hehe, the three boys were jokingly complaining that the rest of the crew were sneaky and unfair to pick a day when they were working! But everyone else seemed to have fun. It seems they spent the entire day together too and there's a lot of photos from everyone's account!

From Stanley's Instagram...

Caption: Getting to know you guys really has been a matter of happiness/luckiness. Each person is different, each person is devious in their own way, but I really like you all. I'm not someone who easily relies on friends, because that will quickly bring other people burdens...But I don't care...I just want to rely on you guys...ye, ye, ye, ye, ye~ ~ ~ ~ And then there's also no one who didn't make it (here today) because they are still in our hearts! : )


From Verna's Instagram...

Caption: A group filming dramas, after one year and still this close and gathering together. I think this is fate (a pre-destined relationship). Thank you Pleasantly Surprised for allowing me to meet you guys! Everyone's good-nature is proven from our time (together). Thankful for this rare to find fate (pre-destined relationship).


From Yorke's Instagram...

Caption: Think you guys are too cute! Can only say that me and my brother are actually too alike. Every Time I See Sean's pictures tagged as me, I keep laughing! ---Sean always seems to be mistaken for Yorke and vice versa!---



From Puff's Instagram...

Caption: Home-cooking to trick you to come here to eat with me



Caption: Already satisfied, already made a vow. Our lives have times of fear and times of joy. It's an unceasing study, an unceasing need for improvement, moving towards one's own dreams and forging one's future. Although in the end, not everyone's dreams will necessarily be the same...I sincerely wish that everyone's dreams will come true.



From Stanley's Instagram...

Caption: So relaxed that even my tummy has come out...hahahahaha!



 I didn't happen to Screen cap when Jasper, Jolin and Yorke left comments on Puff's, Verna's and everyone else's photos with their complaining comments...but some fans did...here's one from a fan page...

A First Look into Jasper and Mandy's When I See You Again 他看她的第2眼

Curious about Jasper and Mandy's new drama? A first look into the first episode is here! SETTV has been releasing a steady stream of trailers, including a hot Jasper one, where Jasper's character claims: "With one look at you, I know what you're thinking..."


There's also the more comical trailer that was released this morning, with Jasper's character noticing little habits that Mandy's chracter exhibits and feels shocked because he's either impressed with her...or he might recognise that girl from his past:


But what's more exciting than trailers is the first look into the first episode. I'm approving of the music and of Jasper's cool businessman look.


Check out some of the screenshots from the clip...It's showing a Pleasantly Surprised reunion with Deyn Li of 4Eva who played Xiao Qiang in the Figaro Crew :)



Ah Jasper's beautiful face looking out the window, not expecting to see Mandy's character...



Oh. Ho. Topless.



Do you like what you see? I actually do! Can't wait for this to start :)

Instagram Updates: Jasper 劉以豪 likes and reposts my photo on Instagram and Facebook!

Sorry, I know this isn't serious news, but I must share my joy with you all...and what better way than through a blog post? :D So you may have seen the following photo on Jasper's Instagram...Well, it came from my Instagram account! 

I'm not sure if I've ever shared this with you all, but These Dramatic Days has an Instagram account and a Facebook account (If you support this blog, please follow me on social media too :D). This morning I did a quick edit of a Jasper and Mandy photo and posted it on These Dramatic Day's Instagram account, tagging Jasper. Then I went to work and didn't check my phone for a few hours....


But then after I got off from work, I openned Instagram to find a crazy amount of likes, which never happens because I rarely post. Anyway, I opened up the notifications to see that...

Jasper himself had liked my Instagram post! So happy! 

If you happen to follow Jasper, or Ryu19860812 as he's known on Instagram, you'll know that he doesn't give out his 'likes' like free candy....so he must really like this picture!!! I'm glad because I selected this picture for Instagram thinking it was pretty cute...and although I didn't take it, I did find it and give it a colour retouch :P But not only did he like it...



He also ended up reposting it on his on Instagram account and also sharing it on Facebook! And that is how much he liked this photo. And I'll stop here...I'm not a crazy fangirl (I swear!) But it's just so nice and rare to be noticed by someone you admire and blog about (And who you flew over to Taipei to see at a fan meet!) So Thank You Jasper for making my day!

Jasper Liu 劉以豪 to star in new 2015 drama When I See You Again 他看她的第2眼

What has Jasper Liu been up to since the end of Pleasantly Surprised? Most of you will know that he's been filming for Tudou's drama, "My Ghost Friend" 我的鬼基友, which is yet to air. But that Jasper...he really does not sleep! Between performing with Morning Call, doing advertisements and modelling for his solo SPOP photo shoot, it's just been announced that he'll be staring in a new drama at the end of the month!


Paired up with Mandy Wei of "Say Yes I do Again", Jasper will be the leading man of the drama "When I See You Again" 他看她的第2眼. The synopsis is yet to be confirmed totally, but it seems Jasper will be playing a Director of an investment firm, handsome, clever with good taste in clothes, while Mandy will be a B&B owner with a big heart and lots of personality. It seems like Mandy and Jasper's characters meet either in high school or university and Mandy's character saves Jasper's character from some bullying, but for some reason, they don't think they should get together. But 10 years later they meet again...will sparks fly this time? If you ask me, the story sounds like it'll be somewhat similar to Rainie Yang and Show Luo's "Hi, My Sweetheart!"...


The cast has been confirmed as well and the line-up sees him reunited with Pleasantly Surprised cast member, Zooey Tseng (who played Linda in the Figaro Crew)! Zooey has been in two projects with Puff (Just You, Pleasantly Surprised) and now two with Jasper...Great to see a familiar face on this new project! Other cast members include Jet Chao and Ivy Shao. 





In case you're wondering...This is the selfie they took...Haha, cutting out the shorties, I see:


The usual press release and related photoshoot was held at SETTV today. Jasper and Mandy had fun with some silly poses. There was also some joking around. Jasper said that he likes girls with long hair, they can be cute, but also sexy. Mandy said she'd lost 5 kgs and blamed Jasper jokingly because she said that he was the youngest or one of the youngest actors she'd worked with (and still she is 2 years older than him) and she had to keep up a strict diet to look slender and young. They also had some funny poses leaning against the wall looking at each other. Jasper posted an Instagram picture talking about how he looked like a pervert in that pose. Haha! What's my opinion on this pairing? Scroll down...















Mandy posted a cute picture on her Instagram..


And of course, Jasper posted one with a trolling expression on his Instagram and Weibo account:


Haha! Do I like this pairing? I'm not sure. Despite all my picture spamming, I'm not overly excited. I had no interest whatsoever in "Say I do Again" and I have heard that Mandy can play the type of character that I don't like. I am also biased because I just loved the Puff and Jasper combination (Which you might have guessed...). I feel Mandy does seem like a slightly more mature actress and there like there are a number of stars they could have matched up with Jasper that would have triggered better ratings? Nothing against Mandy herself, she seems fun as an actress. But I am curious about how TV producers minds work. Am I willing to give this drama a try? Probably. It's Jasper! And he's going to be well-dressed...and playing a conventional businessman role?! 

We'll see how we go! What do you guys think of this pairing?
