CTV and GTV’s [Down With Love] has formally joined in the weekend idol dramas viewership ratings fight. Main casts – Michael Zhang, Xiao Xian, Amanda Zhou etc gathered to watch the debut telecast at the director’s house on 31 Jan 2010. Up against strong opponent – TTV and SET’s [Autumn Concerto], Michael who is starring as Jerry’s buddy since primary school to university, said confidently, “Jerry’s popularity in Asia is akin to Heavenly King Bae Yong Joon’s. I believe the viewers will support their idols.”
Michael and Jerry have known each other for ten years. Earlier on, they had worked with each other in [Hot Shot], but it was only until in [Down With Love] that they both became good friends. Michael laughed and said, “Jerry is one who is slow to warm up to others. So now you know how powerful Ella is to have won his trust in just a matter of days.” Off-screen, the two big boys would often meet to play basketball and Lin Youwei would join them too. Michael added, “Guys always like to sweat it out. That adrenaline high is a good way to release stress.”
With their new drama’s telecast, Michael felt excited and anxious, hence he made arrangement earlier with Xiao Xian, Yan Yi En and Amanda Zhou to gather at the director’s house to watch the debut. He revealed while hosting outdoors for another programme, he once made a wish before the Taichung temple and his wish came true. This time, he also wished for [DWL]’s debut telecast viewership rating to break 3. If his wish comes true, the producer Ke Yi Qin and him will go give thanks at the temple again.
