Jerry Yan’s new drama is set to make its entry in the highly competitive Sunday night idol drama battle. Down With Love will be going up against Autumn’s Concerto, which has been in the number one spot for 17 weeks in a row, as well as a 45 minutes finale of Hi! My Sweetheart. A behind the scenes special of Down With Love was aired last week after an approval delay. Compared to the rating of 7.64% for Autumn’s Concerto and 5.14% for Hi! My Sweetheart, the special brought in a decent rating of 0.98% considering the Momo Love finale was only at 0.69%. All eyes will be on Jerry Yan and Van Ness Wu as the former F4’s battle for the top spot in the ratings. Coincidentally, both stars will be going to Japan for promotions after the Chinese New Year.
In the midst of all this competition, one man/boy will be the ultimate winner regardless of which drama comes out on top. Child star Xiao Xiao Bin has been charming audiences with his acting in Autumn’s Concerto over the past few months. He had even outdone Van Ness Wu when it comes to baring it all on TV. Xiao Xiao Bin will also be seen on Down With Love playing Jerry Yan’s adopted son. The drama will showcase a younger Bin as it was filmed prior to Autumn’s Concerto last year. With a combined rating of 8.62% from both dramas last week, no F4 will even come close to challenging Xiao Xiao Bin for The King of Sunday night TV.
