How to Attract Older Women, Courtesy of Infinite's L



"I will never, ever fall in love with you."
"Why not?"

If you're caught up on your drama news, you may know this as an iconic conversation between the two leads of "The Time I've Loved You," remake of Taiwanese hit drama "In Time With You."

In the new remake, Ariel Lin and Ha Ji Won play women who have just reached 30, and are finally feeling the strain of their age. While adjusting to post-twenty-something life, they meet a handsome young guy (Infinite's L) who starts showing interest in both ladies. Aroused with the possibility of young love, they become tangled in an ambiguous noona-dongsaeng relationship. 

Looking to pick up some thirty-something cougars who are looking for a nice young man? Here's a quick look at the strategy employed by L and David Hsu!

Taiwanese Actress Puff Guo Turns 27


Taiwanese actress (and perennial Viki fan favorite) Puff Guo turns 27 on June 30. If you're not sure who she is and why she's internationally famous, you've probably been living under a very large rock somewhere in the Western Hemisphere since about 2011. But don't panic, there's still time to appreciate her artistry—here's a quick look at what puffs up Puff!

Modeling


You can be the judge of Puff Guo's beauty...or you can let the editors over at FHM Taiwan be the judge. It turns out they've nominated her as the Sexiest Woman for three years in a row!

Music


Since Puff Guo's group "Dream Girls" signed a record deal in 2011, she has become a K-Pop fixture. Check out Dream Girls' 2013 collaboration performance with T-ARA at M Countdown Ni Hao Taiwan, above!

Acting

While Puff Guo debuted in the 2011 hit drama "Inborn Pair," fans outside of Taiwan will recognize her in last year's "We Got Married Global Edition Season 2" where she was paired with Super Junior's Heechul! In between those shows, she built her reputation as a leading lady in "Just You" with co-star Aaron Yan and "Love Myself or You" with co-star Jasper Liu.
