As a model turned actor, Ethan Ruan possesses an extraordinary ability to make the characters his own, regardless of what kind of role he takes on, be it the talented Owen in Green Forest, My Home, the brash Shen Le in Hua Yang Shao Nian Shao Nu, or the awkward Zhou Qiao Shan in Summer x Summer. Watch him and you will laugh and cry with him.

Why did I create a topic devoted to him?
Because he is a versatile actor. I may not like the dramas he is in, but I always like his characters.

Wow, he is really tall. Most of the TW male actors seem to be at least 1,80m.

I liked Ethan in Hana Kimi, he was so cool there. But in summer x summer, it's so cute how he to stummle across his words and is behaving quite clumsy. Ethan really has some talent to be able to play such opposite characters so nicely.

Haha, and I laughed so hard in the New Years special when it was relvealed why Ethan didn't want to get a foot massage. that was so funny. The cool Ethan wearing a pair of grandfather underwear :rofl:

^^gixo, that really was a funny scene. i thought maybe he didn't want to soak his feet because he didn't like it or maybe because it seemed dirty. and then the real reason was revealed! :D i actually thought that was so endearing that he'd wear that kind of stuff. even stars need to be warm. :-)

i totally agree with what you wrote, Kumaxell. i think that most people assumed he was some kind of pretty boy who was just trying to act. however, he has shown in hana kimi and summer x summer so far that he can be very versatile and believable. i'm pretty much watching summer x summer at this point just for his scenes with the sister. i like the story a lot more than i like the main story line. :roll

habukie, you and me both. I'm watching Summer x Summer mostly for him, too. I thought he was so cool when he scares the hell out of the kendo members. Then he totally shattered that image with the next scene when he cries like a little spoiled kid because he wants to be with the sister. I'm laughing just thinking about it.

I wish I'm in Taiwan to see his new movie EXIT NO. 6, which comes out April 20, 2007. He looks really kuso kuso in this movie.

i know! i loved that scene as well. he just does such a believeable job of portraying someone who is at times a fierce warrior and at other times this bumbling, stuttering guy. his performance is a lot better than joe's in this drama.

thanks for the link. that preview looks very interesting. :-)

I totally forgot Ethan is the guy from S.H.E's 河濱公園 MV. That was four years ago.
He is also in 三個字 MV with Joanne Zeng. Love the song and the MV.

I think that Ethan is really really good looking. 8D
And for a model-turned-actor he isn't too bad. XD

He's sadly under-rated as an actor. He's actually extremely versatile, in my opinion. Not many people can go from Prince Charming (Owen) to arrogant jerk (Shen Le) to bumbling, shy-- and adorable-- dork (QiaoSha). Also, although I don't admire everything that he does (with his life or with his hair, with drama/movie choices, etc.), there's something really refreshing about an idol who's so impulsive and HONEST about what he wants. He's not afraid to try new things.

Oh... not to mention that he's GORGEOUS.

I finally caught up with all 13 episodes of "Fated to Love You" over the weekend (I was so far behind). Though I wasn't crazy about the show, Ethan's performance was outstanding, as usual. The emotion he elicited in a scene where he decided the fate of his child was so powerful it still made me cry thinking about it.

I wonder if he has any other project coming up.

Xiao Tian is so HOT ..he's not so typical pretty boy handsome but then he's so HOT!! esp in Pictures!! his modelling pics are to die for!! *faints*

and YAHHH!! he's so versatile!! his dreadlocks in Exit 6 and then braids in Hana Kimi and then the moustache look in Wenting and then now the 30s bizman look... he gives diff feeling in all of them!!! (yet he looks COOL in all of them... im not sure who can pull that many looks...) but then off camera... he's so so cuteeeeeee!!! I love his look in summer x summer the best.. the hair makes him so SHUAI!! !! hhehe (but then the drama really sucked.. esp i dun like Xiao Zhong)

and I think he was totally underrated until now he's the most pop in Taiwan now! in Fated he's not that HOT looking ( he really looks like Ming dao with this hair now ahhaha) but im glad he made a breakthru!! heheh
he deserves more recognition! i think he's much more versatile and acts better than Xiao Zhong and Xiao Mei!

he totally has the charm to attract ppl ~ i think he looks awesome in all images but he looks the best when he's MODELING in pictures...
X_X



X___X"
hhehehe
(that mag pic he's so hot in there! haha)

btw he just swam nakkid in the sea couple days ago ahhah

Hi, do you mind elaborating on this statement?

What don't you admire about his life? I'm just curious since I can't read Chinese and I can't find anything on him when he's my current obsession. Many thanks for your reply. :mrgreen:

i just recently looked up as much info as i could about ethan kkkk~ fated to love you's effect of course :wub:

he's definitely currently dating Tiffany Xu (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Tiffany_Xu).. pics of him and her flying to the Netherlands were just posted up by fans. they went there i think on a vacation right after filming for Fated finished.

he used to date Yanyan (http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Esther_Liu) after they fell in love with each other while filming Green Forest, My Home. but apparently both side's management disapproved of the relationship - Yanyan was only 17 at that time and definitely a bigger star than Ethan was. Also because of this, Ethan was for a few years "neglected" by his mgmt (and so some of this projects after that were not that good).

good thing he got the starring role for Fated! because he's definitely a good actor... he has the innocent, handsome, brash, sensitive, Korean-leading man feel about him. :wub: i'm reminded of Hyun Bin in KimSamSoon and Dong Wook of My Girl when i see Ethan on Fated. :thumleft:

he met Tiffany on the set of Wayward Kenting. seems like he falls in love with his co-stars pretty often. XD

another rumor is that ming dao was the first choice for the lead actor in Fated, but because his talent fee was too expensive..they gave up and went with Ethan (whose talent fee was NT15k per ep - but now a whopping NT100k!).. all i can say is~ GOOD CHOICE! :cheers: (no offense to mingdao supporters :P)
