Actress Joe Chen seems to possess a secret power that guarantees high ratings. Her latest romantic series, Stay With Me (《放弃我，抓紧我》), is no exception to this rule. However, while enjoying the status of queen of the “idol drama”, Chen also faces the criticism of being typecast and not daring to try new things. In an interview with online news site Jiemian, Chen expressed her *aggrieved feelings and said she believes “idol drama” actors and actresses face an even more arduous task than stars of other TV series. “It’s really a tall order to *ingratiate the audience with the characters following the ridiculous scripts of idol dramas,” she explained. But perhaps there’s neither lowliness nor nobleness in TV genres, only the distinction of how actors, actresses and writers treat their job.
