Vic Chou, Ariel Lin “embrace” on Chinese Valentine’s Day in Shanghai

Vic Chou, Ariel Lin “embrace” on Chinese Valentine’s Day in Shanghai
Translated by btzigane @

Yesterday (Aug. 26) Vic Chou and Ariel Lin, along with 10,000 people were at Shanghai’s Yuanshen Sports Center Stadium to take part in a special QiXi (Chinese Valentine’s Day) event -- “10,000 People Embracing,” marking a new Guinness Book of Records for the highest number of couples embracing. Vic, who’s popular with the ladies, seemed to have been caught in a dilemma – first saying that hugging Ariel gave him the best feeling (?) and then turning around and couldn’t seem to forget Da S, remembering the car accident four years ago.

Hard to forget love affair with Da S

Vic Chou and Ariel Lin participated in an “adventure party” in Shanghai yesterday. The theme was to create a new world record for couples embracing, with the couples required to hug each other tightly for 10 seconds. A lot of observers were curious how these two non-lovers would embrace other. Ariel looked kind of shy, while Vic, who’s filmed several “hug” scenes in his dramas, helped her out by stating frankly that the most-felt hug for him was when they embraced each other during the filming of the [Kangshifu] ad. “Lin Yi-chen looks small, slim and strong (?), but embracing her gives [one] quite a feeling.” [*sorry for the sucky translation: 看上去瘦小的林依晨感覺蠻結實,抱起來很有感覺。]

But when asked about his thoughts on the most romantic scene/spot, it looked like Vic was unable to forget Da S. “As long as it’s the right person, the woman that you favor in your heart, I think any place would become romantic, even if something unexpected happens, like the scene of a car accident.” One couldn’t help but remember the year 2005 when Vic was in a car accident and Da S cared for him, which was the beginning of their love affair. Asked if this “accident” refers to that incident four years ago, Vic said: “Everybody knows what it is.”

Every drama is a “transformation”

Vic’s transformation in “Black and White” has caught a lot of people’s attention. Yesterday, he clarified that he didn’t take on this role because he wanted a change (*to transform himself). “Actually, I’ve tried to make a transformation in every drama that I’ve done. I don’t really know what ‘type’ I am, so I have different characterizations (?) in each drama.”

What do Vic and Ariel, who have never collaborated [in a drama], hope they could work together on screen? The two were interviewed separately, but their answers were of “one mind.” Ariel said she hoped it would be drama on the relationship between a psychiatrist and a patient, as “this could be a test of [our] acting skills.” As for Vic, he said he hoped they could do a non-mainstream art film, such as a “crazy person” because “this type of films can help raise our acting skills. I’ve been performing for 10 years, I don’t want people to keep on viewing me as a ‘vase.’ That would be unfair to Director Tsai [*not sure how to translate this, what he actually said was這樣對不起柴導 something like he would feel sorry/ashamed for not doing better or improving since his discovered by Dir Tsai/Cai]. He also said that he’s focusing on acting and wouldn’t consider releasing an album for the time being.
