Now that I’ve succumbed to the charm of the Chinese web series Addicted and the two leads, I must admit that there’s something awfully hot about the way one actor likes to use the other as his personal jiujitsu exercise tool, even while rehearsing ‘bed scenes’. He can just manhandle him at will, carry him around, wrestle him down and sit on him. It shouldn’t be sexy, but it is.
And I so love this ‘scene’, it’s a strange mixture of hilarious, genuine behind-the-scenes happenings and staged fan-service, but still so damn adorable. Warming the other’s feet on his stomach, it’s just very sweet.
And then I love the fact that while the character Bai Lou Yin is very grumpy and serious, the actor is the most adorably constantly smiling guy who seems to make everyone around him happy too. And for some reason, I find this silly little video awfully adorable since they being so flirty and happy (once you’ve opened this particular door, everything seems flirty, but hey, it’s fun) with each other.
Watching these two guys, (with like 3.5 millions followers between them on their social media accounts!), it’s apparent they’re in bit of a predicament. This ever-increasing censorship rules from the Chinese government are just getting worse, but even though Addicted was banned from Chinese media, the guys are seemingly getting a lot of attention. They’ve aquired legions of (hysterical) fans from being in a show on a theme forbidden in their own country. People love the show, are crazy about the two actors and most seem to think they should get married (or something *g*) and so many articles and whatnot are still about those two posing together, often suggestively, even after the ban. But since a possible season 2 won’t be shown in China, will they want to be in it? It’s what has given them exposure, but it’s still a banned show. Such a dilemma, I imagine. Hopefully, the market from other countries is big enough. The absurd dichotomy of the censorship and what a lot of people want, is so evident in this case. It’s angering and saddening. Makes me very intensely want to support this show.
