Idol drama "Autumn’s Concerto" has been number one in the ratings for the past 16 weeks and has generated a lot of hot press. Not only have they been parodied in real estate commercials, even popular phrases from the drama such as “MISHU MISHU” and “Planet Dara” have become schoolchildren chants. And in polls, onscreen couple Van Ness Wu and Ady An consistently win Best Idol Drama Couple by a landslide.
A few days ago Van Ness and Ady filmed a marriage proposal scene. It took place at Wan Ping Park, a popular spot for young couples in Taipei to get engaged. For the scene, Ady had to hold a baby bird in her palm, and during filming, the bird couldn’t help but “relieve” himself in Ady’s hand. She laughed and said, “What a coincidence! I need to go buy a lottery ticket!” (It is a superstition that bird feces bring good luck and fortune) Looks like for for Ady, a bird in the hand is worth "poo" in the bush...bad joke, I know.
In the drama, birds are an important aspect to Guang Xi and Mu Chen’s relationship. However, in reality both Van Ness and Ady are dog lovers. Ady An has kept pets ever since she was a little girl, including stray dogs, but her dream is to raise a lion or panda. However, it doesn’t look like this dream will be achieved anytime soon.
