What does it take for one to prepare for a bed scene? For Aaron Yan, all it took was five simple steps.
In his recent drama Gloomy Salad Days, the story described Aaron and co-star Serena Fang falling in love with each other during their past lives.
On the day of the shoot, the singer-actor dived straight to the set of the drama after completing overseas commitments and filmed his first bed scene for the drama. While it might have looked like an easy scene, Aaron was actually stressed out.
"I didn't know where to put my hands, or how much body contact we should have," said the idol.
The director Zero Chou however told Aaron to "give himself to Serena Fang".
Aaron undertook the scenes responsibly and even came up with five steps of preparation, namely "brushing teeth, putting on perfume, doing push-ups, wearing swimming trunks and taking in a bit of alcohol".
Apart from brushing his teeth for at least 10 minutes in order to retain the freshness of his breath, he even sprayed on perfume, which was said to excite female hormones. The actor demanded Serena to grade him and his co-star gave him "face", by replying "not bad" shyly.
As the singer-actor also wanted to look great on television, he did a couple of push-ups before the actual filming.
He explained, "I wasn't sure which part of my body was going to be revealed, so I trained up my back and arm muscles."
Furthermore, Aaron wanted to wear only underwear for the scene, but added an extra pair of swimming trunks after the production crew warned him about accidentally exposing more than he should.
Lastly, to relax his nerves, Aaron drank some alcohol before the shoot, only to fall asleep while the director was adjusting the camera. She shook him for a period of time before he woke up.
"I wanted to just take away my nervousness initially, but I guess I ended up being too relaxed," said Aaron in embarrassment.
Aaron's courage boosted after this experience, claiming that he would "take more clothes off the next time".
