Ariel Lin YiChen Films MV for Jolin Tsai YiLin's New Album; The Two Queens Have Quietly Supported Each Other in the Past
The MV for 蔡依林 Jolin Tsai YiLin's next single, 詩人漫步 [Shi Ren Man Bu] [The Ramblings of a Poet], began filming on August 29, 2012. 林依晨 Ariel Lin YiChen guest-stars as the female lead for the MV; it's the first time the "Golden Melody" and "Golden Bell" award winners have collaborated. Though the pair have also not had many private interactions, they have been "supportive" of each other in the past. According to Ariel's manager, when Jolin fell into her contract dispute years ago, Ariel said, "You have to keep on going (add oil)! You're amazing!" Jolin's manager also said, "When Ariel was in the hospital for surgery, Jolin said she felt for her and really wanted to encourage her."
Yesterday, when the two women were asked about the first time they met, Jolin answered that they met last year at 李易 Li Yi and 六月 June (Liu Yue)'s wedding. Ariel, however, reminded Jolin, "Actually, it was many years ago, on an outdoors show hosted by 小豬 XiaoZhu (Show Lo ZhiXiang) and 歐弟 Ou-Di!" It was also on that episode that Ariel expressed her encouragement to Jolin.
Jolin cried while watching Ariel's drama 我可能不會愛你/In Time With You; Ariel bought Jolin's 地才/Acquired Talent DVD. When Jolin asked Ariel to film her MV, Ariel agreed immediately-- without asking how much compensation she would receive. She took only a "lucky number" 紅包 hong bao (red packet) for payment and requested that Jolin bake a cake for her!
Yesterday, Ariel worked very hard on the MV; she even had to film in the rain. Jolin was very touched and brought Ariel a Hello Kitty bathrobe to keep warm. Jolin also praised Ariel's acting: "She cries one second, and the next second, it's as though nothing happened." Ariel replied modestly, "Ah! That's not true! If I've just filmed an angry scene, I also need a few minutes to adjust." Ariel praised Jolin for being hardworking: "She lets everyone know just how far hard work can take you!"
