Aaron Yan dishes advice for preparing a bed scene

Posted by diopatra on December 8, 2010

What does it take for one to prepare for a bed scene? For Aaron Yan, all it took was five simple steps.

In his recent drama Gloomy Salad Days, the story described Aaron and co-star Serena Fang falling in love with each other during their past lives.

On the day of the shoot, the singer-actor dived straight to the set of the drama after completing overseas commitments and filmed his first bed scene for the drama. While it might have looked like an easy scene, Aaron was actually stressed out.

“I didn’t know where to put my hands, or how much body contact we should have,” said the idol.

The director Zero Chou however told Aaron to “give himself to Serena Fang”.

Aaron undertook the scenes responsibly and even came up with five steps of preparation, namely “brushing teeth, putting on perfume, doing push-ups, wearing swimming trunks and taking in a bit of alcohol”.

Apart from brushing his teeth for at least 10 minutes in order to retain the freshness of his breath, he even sprayed on perfume, which was said to excite female hormones. The actor demanded Serena to grade him and his co-star gave him “face”, by replying “not bad” shyly.

As the singer-actor also wanted to look great on television, he did a couple of push-ups before the actual filming.

He explained, “I wasn’t sure which part of my body was going to be revealed, so I trained up my back and arm muscles.”

Furthermore, Aaron wanted to wear only underwear for the scene, but added an extra pair of swimming trunks after the production crew warned him about accidentally exposing more than he should.

Lastly, to relax his nerves, Aaron drank some alcohol before the shoot, only to fall asleep while the director was adjusting the camera. She shook him for a period of time before he woke up.

“I wanted to just take away my nervousness initially, but I guess I ended up being too relaxed,” said Aaron in embarrassment.

Aaron’s courage boosted after this experience, claiming that he would “take more clothes off the next time”.

Taiwanese TV star Ethan Ruan, known for his bedroom scenes, says his smooches reveal much about his feelings

Posted by diopatra on June 27, 2009

HE BLUSHED when reminded that the Chinese media has been calling him King Of Bed Scenes and Taiwan Stallion.

‘I’ve only had bed scenes in two dramas, how can that make me king?’

That was the shy reaction from Taiwanese actor Ethan Ruan.

The scenes in question are a steamy romp with actress Chen Qiao En in last year’s Fated To Love You, and an equally hot scene with Cheryl Yang in Queen Of No Marriage.

The first was only 10 minutes long, but it was enough to make Fated To Love You Taiwan’s most watched drama of all time.

Since they were aired, netizens have flooded Internet forums with gushing and even lustful comments.

Even his co-stars have joined in the praise.

Taiwanese online news portal Liberty Times recently reported that Qiao En praised Ethan for his ‘exciting kisses’, saying he was the best smoocher when compared with other actors such as Blue Lan and Ming Dao.

Cheryl too, reportedly said she she enjoyed Ethan’s ‘playful kisses’ as opposed to those she shared with one of the series’ supporting actors, Wen Sheng Hao.

Ethan first burst into showbiz in a music video for singer Penny Tai and subsequently made a name for himself starring in music videos for artistes like Stefanie Sun, Jolin Tsai, Fish Leong and S.H.E.

His pretty boy looks soon moved him into the drama scene, with his first series, Michael The Archangel’s Dance five years ago.

First leading role

But it was only last year that he won his first leading role, in Fated To Love You.

And it has made him one of the top Taiwanese stars today.

The 1.84m-tall actor is also a model who has graced the covers of magazines like Elle, GQ and Harper’s Bazaar.

Despite all the blushing at last weekend’s media appearance, Ethan revealed he was comfortable when shooting the scene.

‘A veteran actress once told me that you can never be too into a scene,’ he said.

He added that as long as he is professional about it, he would put his heart and soul into the scene so that the chemistry between the two actors is believable.

But does he carry that ‘electricity’ into real life?

Said Ethan: ‘Taiwanese girls are shy by nature so I’ve honestly never heard any comments from my girlfriends.’

‘When I kiss someone I am always communicating something. It could be asking her if she likes me or telling her how much I love her. Maybe that’s what makes them feel special,’ he added.

As to how he keeps girlfriend Tiffany Hsu’s jealousy in check when he canoodles his leading ladies, he put it down to the Eurasian model-actress’ ‘trust in my professionalism’.

That’s probably the easy part.

The difficult part would be to deal with the numerous proposals – many of them indecent – that total strangers have made to the actor.

He’s been getting them since he was 16, he said, when women in their 20s would offer to buy him luxury items such as cars in return for his ‘company’.

‘I thought they were out of their minds. I told them that I was satisfied with my financial situation and didn’t need or want their money,’ he said.

He also added that although he doesn’t mind his fans’ amorous comments, he would always treat their interactions ‘with respect’.

‘For some strange reason, my fans are very pretty. But I believe in engaging in proper behaviour at all times,’ he said.

Having said that, he also admitted to always having been long-time friends with his love interests first, before jumping into a relationship.

‘But when I commit and we are a couple, let’s just say I’m not the kind to procrastinate,’ he said with a grin.

The quiet confidence that Ethan exudes, however, has less to do with his toned physique than his increasing popularity.

He confessed that he hates going to the gym and relies only on his favourite sport, surfing, to stay in shape.

Numerous acting opportunities and endorsement deals have come knocking on his door, with the latest being from American fast food conglomerate McDonald’s.

He recalled how he had a small part in a McDonald’s commercial seven years ago, which coincidentally was shot in Singapore.

But the NT$20,000 ($890) he was paid then is a far cry from the NT$1 million endorsement deal he recently signed with the burger chain.

Said Ethan: ‘I am very grateful to (Taiwanese TV station) Settv for producing two excellent dramas (Fated To Love You and Queen Of No Marriage) and casting me in them.’

Addressing rumours that the TV station had written the series with the idea of milking his sex symbol image, Ethan remained ambivalent as ‘that is indeed one side of me’.

‘However, I do hope people get to see my multi-faceted personality. I’m one of the goofiest geeks around as well,’ he said with a laugh.
