Taiwan — Filming light-hearted romance dramas may not necessarily be better than filming heart-breaking ones.

That is what Taiwanese actress Gingle Wang told AsiaOne recently despite her going through the wringer for the upcoming Netflix tearjerker drama More Than Blue: The Series. 

Last year, Wang, 23, told the media that her eyes became too dry from all the crying. She suffered abrasions on her corneas after having to repeatedly remove and wear her contact lens.

Speaking to AsiaOne in a virtual interview together with her co-star Fandy Fan, it was revealed that Wang was also slapped many times for a scene.

“I’ve always felt very fortunate that I hadn’t been slapped before onscreen in the five years since entering showbiz. But when I saw that scene on the script, I thought to myself, ‘This day has finally arrived’”, Wang said, smiling in recollection.

The scene was at a police station where Wang’s character Cream has a heated exchange with her aunt (played by director-actress Vera Chen) who then slapped her over and over.

Wang elaborated: “Vera is very professional. Before we began filming, she told me how hard she would slap me. But eventually, during the take, she got carried away by her emotions and the slaps turned out differently from how she mentioned earlier. I still want to thank her though, she’s an extremely professional actress. She took care of me when she could, and she also didn’t hold back when she had to be vicious.”

Wang was slapped more than 10 times for the scene because of the different angles required. Her cheek was red afterwards, but she was none the worse for it, reported AsiaOne.

“It sounded really loud on set,” Fan, 27, chirped.

Based on the 2018 Taiwanese film of the same name, More Than Blue: The Series broke box office records in Taiwan that year. The movie also holds the record for the highest-grossing Taiwanese film of 2018 in Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore.

Besides a more intricate storyline that gives greater context to the characters, the drama plot mostly parallels what happens in the movie.

The 10-episode series is about the story of star-crossed lovers K and Cream from their college years. K never confessed his feeling for her even though they have feelings for each other. He is aware that his hereditary terminal illness would strike any moment.

Before he dies, K tries to find a companion for Cream. Wang shared during the interview that it was not hard filming the many crying scenes. What was tough was the long duration, which left them exhausted. For instance, there was a day Fan wept from morning to night, while she had emotional scenes three days in a row.

Fan also had another challenge — to look good while crying.

“In the early stages of filming the drama, my nose would run whenever I wept, and the director told me to do it without the snot. There was some difficulty, but it was possible. Later on, I could control myself, like, I would breathe and hold them in,” he laughed.

More Than Blue: The Series, co-produced by mm2 Entertainment Taiwan, also stars Wang Bo-chieh, Ivy Shao, Eleven Yao and Figaro Tseng, and premieres on Netflix Oct 22. /TISG
