Da S Afraid of gaining weight
Ariel Lin took over the role of a poor girl in the village

Noble posture and a high price tag, Da S has finally “Ti Dao Tei Ban” ! ( meet obstacle)
The GTV idol drama Love or Bread starring Da S and Joe Cheng replaced the female leading role that cast Da S by Ariel Lin. Da S cited the reason of schedule’s conflict with her movie’s project. Another speculation is that the character of the role she would play in the Love or Bread were way to “Villagers” that needed to only wear blue and white shoes and gain weight. Da S is not allowed herself to downgrade from the proclaimed princess to the character in the drama.

GTV drama will begin shooting in August. It has costumes set up and made the posters. Da S sudden dropout gave GTV headache. It was learned that the reasons for the dropout are the character of “Zhen Shan Mei”, a poor girl who only wears a pair of 20 bucks blue-white shoes and would knee down to count money on the ground. Upon hearing director Lin ask her to gain weight, Da S painfully consider to give up the role.

Ariel Chen is not afraid of being compared
Da S’s concern on the other hand is a challenge for Ariel Lin. GTV said that Ariel Lin was the first choice to be considered for the drama and later was replaced by Da S.

It seems that everything has retuned to how it was started. Afraid of being compared with Da S? Ariel Lin said “Every person will portray the character it his/her own way.” Da S’s agent replied “ Only because of conflict with her schedule. Shan Cai is also a character of “weed“. Da S will not pick on the role la”

Actresses and actors best ability is to act as a chameleon. They should be versatile in their role and neither be stuck with a labeled role nor be great at playing only one particular role. Knowing your strengths and weaknesses is one thing, and conquering it is another. As for the success of the character in a drama weighed upon actress/actor, the performer has more to worry about than just the typical acting capabilities... they have to have a charm to keeps viewers tuned in. I know Barbie Xu did play Shancai in Meteor Garden and Han Qi Luo in Mars. She was great in both roles. She even walked out of those roles and stepped into roles in Monkey King, Corner With Love, and A Chinese Ghost Story (I'm not such a fan of these three dramas). But at the same time, I don't think I can see her back in these roles. She outgrew them. It's neither a bad nor good thing. It means, I see limits in the roles she can pull off professionally. I feel the same way about Vic Chou. He outgrew the quiet reserve type found in Lei of Meteor Garden. His roles in Mars, Sweet Relationship, Love Storm, and Wish to See You Again are nothing like the Lei his fans fell in love and loved him because of it. Ariel Lin is another story. She has what it takes to be a versatile actress. I seen her in My Secret Garden (parts of it, at least), ISWAK, TKA, Fairy From Wonderland, Love Contract & Tokyo Juliet (not her best performance in TJ). She has a lot to offer to her character and an unbelieveable charm to keep viewers tuned in.

I think both Ariel Lin and Barbie Xu has this similar aspect about them. Both are not apparent beauties. They look plain at one angle, but another look at them (especially since they are celebrities), you find yourself looking the type of girls who showcase a natural beauty that is so pleasant compared to their "glamorous" peers. Yoon Eun Hye has that aspect about her, too.

So another drama for Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng??? Hmmzz... wonder how this will turn out.

ah I get sick of the leads being the same as previous dramas in new ones.
I prefer to keep things fresh and new. I want to see ariel with someone else and joe with someone else.

But shes an actress, how could she deny a role just cause she doesn't want to get fat?
I think I've just lost whatever respect I've had left for her.

Who is Da S?? I've never heard of her. At first, I thought it was a company..sorry, no offense to her fans. However, im proud of Ariel Lin to take part in this casting and doing what the producers ask of her. So hopefully, its another good drama!

i think it's ok both Ariel Lin and Barbie Xu has "what it takes" for the role, let's not think bad of barbie jst bcoz she gave up the role, as it said it's due to the sked, and i believe that ariel lin is a good actress and it's sad that some people hates her bcoz of her role in ISWAK 1 and 2, they're just blinded from the role, they can't see that she's very good in what she does concerning of her acting skill and it only proves that she's good bcoz alot of people hates her annoying character in that drama, meaning she did a good job, to all that hates her in ISWAK 1 nd 2, i suggest they watch the japanese version, the lead actress in there was a lot more annoying than Ariel lin,,, thus proves that both the actress gave a good performance.

i look forward to seeing this drama again w/ joe cheng and ariel lin

it's barbie xu

Why do they call Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu 'Da S' ? When she first started her singing carier, she started it with her younger sister and call themselves as "Sister of Su", SOS. Since both of their surname is the same (Xu), in order to differentiate between her and her sister, they (I don't know who started it first) call her as "Da S" (Big S) and her sister as "Xiao S"(Small S)
