Just You’s Popularity Scores It Multiple Wins at the 2013 SETTV Drama Awards

Last night, Sunday 22 December, SETTV held its year end drama awards acknowledging its stars in this year’s productions. The awards aren’t anything prestigious but rather it is just some fun and games to appreciate the stars’ hard work. Every year, Taiwan only has a handful of dramas on its hands with most of the rating successes and popular ones coming from SETTV. While my favourite drama this year came from SETTV, one of my least favourites also happened to come from SETTV. The offerings this year from SETTV weren’t great but there was quite some variety with what it offered.

The awards were decided with 30% of the decision coming from weibo votes, 30% coming from the media and 40% from a team of bts professionals. I’m glad that it wasn’t an all-public vote because Just You would have took home nearly all of the awards. I did not watch it but from the public votes alone, there is some huge bias towards that drama. However, it did really well at the awards ceremony taking home 4 of the 12 awards. Its leading man, Aaron Yan took home the most awards of the night, claiming three titles.

SETTV was not shy from using this event to ramp up the popularity with In A Good Way. IAGW is not eligible for participation in the awards this year as it does not end its run until next year. The OTP, Lorene Ren and Lego Lee were presenters for the best kiss award. They look so cute together even if Lego’s outfit was a bit too old school for the event. This reminds, I need to hop onto the IAGW bandwagon asap!

Check out the award winners! I am glad that Two Fathers came home with some winnings because I honestly loved that drama to bits and pieces!

    I’m a new comer of Taiwanese Drama. Two weeks ago I started watching my very first Taiwanese Drama “Just You”. While I was looking through the selection of dramas, Aaron Yan’s picture in Just You caught my eye. So then, I decided to watch it. I instantly loved it because it made me laugh and happy. After several episodes I began to get hooked, addicted and obsessed etc. I am so intrigued by the fact that Aaron & Puff have a strong chemistry together. I enjoy watching them. Their acting abilities are awesome that I too, can feel what their characters are portraying. They really do match. Watching them together gives me the thrill. I began to love Aaron so much so I decided to watch another drama of his which is “Fall In Love With Me” I was super excited to watch Aaron, I think Aaron is a great actor but, while I watched couple episodes of Fall in Love With Me. I wasn’t feeling it. I wasn’t as excited as I was when I watched Just You. Aaron’s acting was great but his leading lady Tia’s acting is horrendous. I felt uncomfortable watching her act. I only watched it because of Aaron. I think Aaron is Good Looking. This moment on I am obsessed with Aaron. Now I’m watching all Aaron’s dramas and music videos as well as all his You Tube videos. I’m looking forward to his upcoming drama Refresh Man. More Power to Aaron Yan!
