Recently Chen Qiao En bared her back to promote her new book, and the tattoo on her waist has also become the media’s focus. Chen Qiao En said: “The tattoo on my waist was done in Taiwan. That was five years ago when I was recording an outdoor scene for China Is So Big and got an East Pakistan word in Yunan LiJiang. The translated meaning is “Be Contented and Forget”, the meaning is to be happy and contented and to be able to forget about unhappy things; after I got the tattoo, I found that it helps!”
Ethan Ruan and Chen Qiao En become close while filming Fated To Love You, and both share the same interest of “watching movies”. Chen Qiao En smiled and said: “In the drama, we fell in love with each other; but off-screen I feel that Ethan Ruan is like my younger brother.” Ethan Ruan also said: “It’s good to be like this, I feel that we have two rapports. One is when we were filming overseas, we support each other and built up a feeling of camaraderie, the other is after we “went to bed”. After the bed scene, we don’t feel awkward anymore!” Even though he said this, both of them do not dare to watch the preview for the bed scene, Ethan Ruan said jokingly: “Because we will feel shy!”
Fated To Love You will be airing on 16th of March and Ethan Ruan portrays the CEO of Asia’s largest daily chemicals enterprise. He is cold, business-like and aloof, who is completely different from sticky note girl Chen Xin Yi (Chen Qiao En) who is approachable and un-ambitious. Because in the drama Chen Xin Yi is a sticky note girl, SET conducted a “sticky note generation” survey together with 1111 manpower bank and found that there are 20% rate of “sticky note generation” at the workplace; which has the characteristics of “does not pursue outer beauty”, “cares a lot about what others think of themselves” and “does not dare to take the initiative when they meet the people they like”. Besides this, above 75% of the people surveyed likes to work with sticky note generation; what is contradictory is, 65% does not like being the sticky note generation!
Regarding her role of sticky note girl in the drama, Chen Qiao En said: “Actually I do not have a lot of lines in the drama, because for every word I said, Ethan Ruan scolds twenty words.” Ethan Ruan replied: “In the drama I bullied her, but it’s the reverse off-screen. Because I can’t order girls around, so I am not used to it; for this drama, I dug up all my bad nature!” Chen Qiao En smiled and said: “Sometimes when the director called “Cut”, Ethan Ruan immediately exclaimed: “I am so bad, why do I treat you like this!” It’s really funny.”
