Hi everyone! Hehe, I'm relatively new to spcnet, but I've been an Ariel fan for about a year. I've seen Secret Garden I, Seventh Grade, Love Contract, ISWAK 1 (and TKA/ISWAK 2 so far), Tian Wai Fei Xian and Tokyo Juliet. (Oh, and Love Me If You Can - absolutely agree with what Jilly said - the movie itself wasn't the greatest - it's a modern/reincarnation take on the "butterfly lovers" story - but Ariel's performance was amazing, and she definitely deserved the Golden Horse Award nomination for it).
I'm *really* looking forward to seeing her in LOCH in May
0-0-0, there's a whole album for Lunia? Interesting. I think I saw something on the Lunia page that they were selling with Ariel's cosplay pic on the cover (she cosplayed the main female character, Eir The Healer) – maybe it was the album. She only sang that one theme song, though. Ariel’s never released a full album. She actually might be doing so at the end of this year, depending on how things go, but her focus will always be primarily on acting. She does have a weak voice, but that’s because she's never had any training. (A lot of people’s voices are thin until they get proper training with breath control and proper use of the diaphragm, etc – that was the case for me, anyway). I think she has a good voice, but she gets so nervous in front of a crowd. I would just say she needs training and some practice before she releases a full album... maybe visit the U.S. and sing in a few coffee shops or something to get rid of her big crowd jitters
Kinda of related to the music thing, there have been two news articles out that Ariel might be looking at doing a role this year in a drama called “Purple Rose.” If she does take the role, her character would be the girlfriend of a guy who’s a singer, but then he dies. So, Ariel’s character decides to fulfill his dream of becoming a big singer, even though she doesn’t know anything about singing.
Has anyone posted any of the pics of Ariel cosplaying the “evil” princess from Lunia? She designed the princess dress herself from her own childhood ideas of what she thought a princess would wear. (lol, does that remind anyone of Tokyo Juliet?)
Source gamebase and soostar:
The part that made me happy, though, was that she said she would definitely consider doing a villainous role in the future. I'd love to see Ariel portray the antagonist in a series or movie, since that's one type of role she hasn't done yet.
And here’s a recent pic of Ariel at a TKA promo with Figaro and Joe (lol, love it when she laughs): (Credit to wretch blog user)
