Cast Daringly Uses New Faces
Warmly received by fans in France, Spain, Japan and South Korea, the filming of the drama had met with a few hiccups. On the fourth day of filming, eleven crew members were hospitalized after they were stung by giant hornets on Taiwan’s famous Yangming Mountain. The news made local headlines and caused filming to halt for two days; later, just three days before filming was due to wrap, a lightsman fell from a two storey-high light structure, but fortunately suffered only minor injuries.
Starring Eric Lin Hui-ming (林暉閔) of Starry, Starry Nite <星空> fame, Huang Hsin Hao of Love Cuisine <如果没有你> and debuting new actors Leo Guo Yuchen (郭宇宸) and Weijie Lin (林煒傑), DNA Says Love You is director Eri Hao‘s (郝心翔) first BL drama. Billed as a light-hearted BL comedy-adventure, the story’s theme of self-exploration in a changing world aligns with its focus on a mysterious site in the mountainous region of Taiwan’s North Coast, rumored to bless couples who visit with an unexpected reward.
Producer Ben Tsin shared, “Asian BL dramas have performed well on the global front in recent years, and Because of You <2020 因為愛你> filmed in 2019 also had outstanding results on the global stage. It had good rankings when aired overseas in Thailand, Philippines, Japan, US and Europe. Even before filming started, Japan’s ABC Frontier had already expressed interest in acquiring the series, while there’s a high chance that Thailand’s Channel 3 will acquire rights for a local adaptation.
