2013 On-Screen Couple Aaron Yan and Puff Guo Reaps Home the Awards at This Year’s SETTV Drama Awards

SETTVAwards
The awards season has well and truly kicked in. As always, SETTV Drama Awards are moreso a popularity award than it is an acting award. That is, however, that is not to say that there isn’t no critical analysis behind the handout of awards. There certainly is, but the popularity of the stars and dramas outweighs everything else. It’s better to see these awards as some fun and games and that is really what it is. SETTV dramas are light and fluffy dramas that uses tried and tested storylines and are abundant with handsome and pretty leads who might not always have the acting charisma, but they sure do have the on-screen presence!

Last year’s on-screen couple Aaron Yan and Puff Guo swept home the awards while Lego Lee and Lorene Ren got lots of love. The awards ceremony was was fun one with lots of red carpet fun. The red carpet this year was pretty much spot on and it was just nice to see these hard-working stars glam themselves up for the night and reunite with some of their close friends. Continue reading for the full list of winners and the red carpet pictures!

How Fall in Love with Me managed to take home Most Popular Drama baffles me. I thought either In A Good Way or Pleasantly Surprised would have ran home with it but I guess the Aaron power is much stronger than I had thought. Aaron Yan, the Best Actor winner of the night, wore a two-toned grey suit with stripes, which I feel has a bit too much going on. Tia Li just looks very stiff in this picture. I’ll give my commentary on her dress in a picture down below.

I have not seen Jasper Liu and Puff Guo‘s drama but judging by this picture alone, their chemistry is definitely something squee-worthy! I love just how natural they are together, as opposed to above aforementioned couple. They are definitely comfortable around each other and that is transferable on-screen. Puff’s got chemistry with her recent leading men, so Aaron, you’ve got some competition here! Not a fan of Jasper’s suit, it looks too old on him, but Puff was perfect for the night. I’ll give a commentary on her outfit in a better picture below.
SETTV AwardsCarolyn Chen wears a very sexy lace, black gown. I love how it hugs her body at the right places and shows the appropriate amount of skin without overexposure. These peek-a-boo dresses have really become the thing in recent years.

Sunny Li wears a white dress which I feel is a tad too wedding-inspired, but it does look good on her.

After parting their own ways since finishing In A Good Way, hit couple Lego Lee and Lorene Ren reunite on-stage once again for their Best On-Screen Couple Award which was already theirs’ since last year’s ceremony. I love them together and it’s so good to see them together again! Their attire looks black in this picture but it’s actually navy blue. I’ll give a commentary below on a better picture.

I really like Tia Li‘s contrasting silver glitter and matte black dress on her! It drapes around her body nicely and shows just the right amount of skin without being too revealing. I wish she would style her hair to something other than that sleek, pulled-back look that she sports to everywhere. It doesn’t match the airy-ness of her dress.

I love that navy blue princess-style dress that Lorene Ren is wearing. It accentuates her sweetness and really helps to give her the innocent girl image, which she had in In A Good Way. Her hair is styled in such a way that matches her dress but she could have used some more popping jewellery.

My favourite outfit of the night would have to be Puff Guo‘s. She is stunningly elegant in her white dress. She had on minimal jewellery with the dress taking the attention. Her hair was beautifully in an updo accompanied by curls to soften the entire look. Overall, I’d say it was a perfect look.

Mandy Wei actually managed to work her hideous hair that she sports in her current drama Say  Again Yes I Do into a red carpet fit hairstyle! That midi length of her dress works well to make her appear taller but I think at some places the dress doesn’t hug her properly.
SETTV Awards

Lego Lee in the arms of his previous leading lady Lorene Ren and current leading lady Yao Yao! Lego’s got the hair right this time around (as opposed to last year) but I’m not a fan of his floral suit. It definitely works on him, that’s for sure. Well, he is handsome enough to pull off any outfit.

It’s a smart choice for Yao Yao to go with a cocktail dress. She is short in stature so a long dress would weigh her down. I don’t really have anything to say about the dress except that it’s simple and sometimes, simplicity is what works the best.
SETTV AwardsLin Yo Wei looks good here together with Mandy Wei! He dons a black suit with thin stripes which I think looks good on him. It’s another one of those simplicity at its finest outfits.

SETTV Awards

The two fathers, or more precisely, one father and one father-to-be James Wen and Chris Wang are smiling so happily on-stage! I guess this is what fatherhood brings them! Like Yo Wei, Chris goes with the simplicity at its finest suits while James wears a patterned suit. I haven’t seen him since King Flower so it’s nice to see him around again.

    What a joke. Fall in Love with Me wins… IAGW or PS would have been much better candidates…. Exactly like you said, i did not feel anything in FILWM except anger and frustration and the lack of chemistry. Whereas in PS, Puff and Jasper were just so adorablee. Anyways, at least Puff and Jasper looked sooooo dams bautiful and handsome at the awards.

        2 words “Aaron Yan”. He is an eye candy many fans would blindly follow.

    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. I am now obsessed with him. I am now 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!
