Ariel Lin's ideal man is Daniel Henney

Ariel Lin, during an interview with Entertainment @ Azio recently, mentioned again that she had established a will when she was 23 years old for fear that she was unable to say everything that she wanted to say or do everything that she wanted to do. Besides having a boyfriend during her time in university, she also had a number of bad relationships after that. Her will was divided amongst four people. Other than her parents and her younger brother, she had chokingly revealed that: "There was another loved one at that time..." After saying that, she was close to collapsing emotionally and she finally cried in front of the hostess, Patty Hou for about 10 minutes.

As for her ideal boyfriend, Ariel openly said that she likes a guy who is tall and thin. She repeatedly mentioned the name of Korean star, Daniel Henney for five times. However when the hostess asked about Mike He, she was not willing to say much about it. Ariel, who has recently released her first album, says her famous phrase regarding her future: “I am just like a script that can not accept amendment.” She even declared that she will act until she is old.

She makes me curious, especially since she has worked with so many young male stars.

Wu Chun tries out Chongqing hotpot

Just a day before, they participated in a big performance in Chongqing, the other members of Fahrenheit apart from Wu Chun, had to rush back to the hotel to pack their suitcase to leave the early next morning to return to Taiwan to film dramas. After Wu Chun returned to the hotel for a shower, he left through a side door of the hotel to accompany his mum1 to go eat a Chongqing hotpot

Wu Chun while on stage said that after the performance, he would go eat Chongqing mala hotpot with his mum that came to watch him perform, so after the performance ended a lot of fans followed the reporters to find out the location of where Wu Chun was going for his midnight snack. The reporters were helpless to the request, but there were also a lot of dedicated Wu Chun fans who waited for him outside the hotel door.

Previously Wu Chun with Fahrenheit have briefly been past Chongqing several times, but this is the 1st time they stayed. Wu Chun said, when they got off the plane there were a few fans there waiting for them, he knew at that time they made the right decision to come, " Chongqing fans need us" he said "this time in Chongqing is the 1st time I've ate the proper mala hotpot, it's very authentic". After the reporters informed him, on that day there were more than 400 fans at the airport and that the airport had to completely change the security measures set up, Wu Chun felt very honoured and thankful towards the passionate fans, at the same time he was grateful for the airport staff for looking after them and hopes that next time they would be able to come to Chongqing again.

Also, Wu Chun revealed for the next half of the year he will release a series of photo albums. At present, he has chosen the photographer and the lighting staff and has even decided on the basic concept, the shooting should begin quite soon, and when the reporters asked whether or not it was a breakthrough with the scale, Wu Chun tried to avoid the question saying "I will not disappoint everyone, I will like it very much as well"

At present, Wu Chun will stay in Chongquing for 2 days and will return to Taiwan, on July 31st and August 1st for the last 2 shows of the Mengniu Concerts, the representative for the same company is the ever popular idol group S.H.E. They will replace Fahrenheit to complete the last 2 shows for the grand finale.

I listed the original simply because there seems to be some debate as to who this 'mum' is in the article, as Wu Chun's mother is apparently dead.  Also, does he remind anyone else of Dan Wu lookswise? XD


Kay Tse feels the rumors with Eason Chan and her marriage are outrageous

Yesterday Kay Tse accepted a radio interview, towards the recent gossips about her and Eason Chan and rumors that her marriage with Louis Cheung has come to a red light. She responded: "I am hurt the most when the magazines are writing in a brainwashing tone. This made my friends who originally did not believe in such rumors, started to question if its true. (Your husband?) Our relationship did not get affected, my in-laws also trust me." Asked if Kay and Eason would avoid each other? She expressed that she had talked to Eason already, they felt that there is no need to avoid. The two have not ate one meal together in their personal lives, so when they see each other, it is all work related.

Kay denied that she's pregnant again. Towards her husband accused of being an idiot (fai chai), she said: "That is what is hurts, it is so outrageous. (Are you going to take legal action?) My company will deal with the arrangements. As a singer, I feel really innocent, so helpless."


Eason Chan and Hillary Tsui's Marriage Discord Rumors Grow

Since their 3 year marriage, Eason Chan and Hillary Tsui had numerous discord rumors. Due to saving money for his father's million-dollar medical treatment in China, Eason allegedly told Hillary to stop spending excessively. The couple has been arguing non-stop, thus giving rise to recent marriage discord rumors. In a recent Guangzhou concert, Eason cried onstage three times.

Although Eason, Hillary, and their daughter attended Paul Wong and Wong Ka Keung's concert together, the couple normally pursue their own interests separately.

Eason likes to pursue his activities freely, [apart from Hillary]. Earlier, he was spotted having dinner with his assistant and two friends after work. The group ate at a modest Thai restaurant in Aberdeen. Eason appeared to be in good spirits and stayed for two hours. When Eason left, several housewives asked for autographs, which he willingly complied.

Due to frequent travel requirements for work, Eason's car had a suitcase in the trunk. Beneath the trunk was a set of new wheels for his car. Hillary was not present that night and Eason appeared as if he were a bachelor!

In contrast, Hillary was spotted shopping expressionlessly with her daughter, Constance. Hillary told her assistant to take Constance to a nearby department store to buy toys. Afterwards, Constance returned with a chicken drumstick and gave it to her mother.

Jam Hsiao's first onscreen kiss

Taiwanese singer, Jam Hsiao, who shot to fame from singing variety programme, One Million Star, gave out his first onscreen kiss in his latest song, "Love too much". The star was notified by the director of the additional 'kissing scene' only after he arrived at the filming site. A worried Hsiao shared, "I didn't prepare any gum and I don't have my toothbrush with me."

In the music video, Hsiao plays the character of a photographer who yearns to freeze time, and secretly kisses his cheating girlfriend. Everyone expected Hsiao to be shy and embarrassed when the director wanted a shot of Hsiao's lips slowly approaching his 'girlfriend's'. To their surprise, he finished it in one take. However, due to the various different angle shots required by the director, the scene was reshot at least 10 times over.

Hsiao will be holding concerts at Kenting and Jinmen over the next few days in lieu with the release of his latest music album. He gleefully said, "I have never been to these two places before."

Special guests for his upcoming Taiwan concerts include Valen Hsu (in Kenting) and Amber Kuo (in Kinmen). Hsiao will respectively perform Eason Chen's "Long time no see" and Kelly Chen's "Creating the romance" with each of the female singers.


Two Chinese Films to Vie for Golden Lion

Chinese-language films "Accident" and "Prince of Tears" are among the 23 candidates announced Thursday for the top prize at this year's Venice Film Festival, Sohu.com reported.

They will compete for the coveted Golden Lion, with each other and other films, including Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" and "A Single Man", the directorial debut of fashion designer Tom Ford.

"Accident", a film by Hong Kong director Cheang Pou-Soi, revolves around the internal conflicts within a group of assassins. It stars Louis Koo, Richie Ren and Suet Lam.

"Prince of Tears" is a film by Taiwan-raised director Yon Fan, focusing on Taiwan in the 1950s and 1960s. Cast members include Viter Fan, Hsiao-Chuan Chang and Terri Kwan.

The Venice Film Festival has a tradition of announcing a "surprise film" during the festival. It will then join the battle for the Golden Lion. Chinese mainland director Tian Zhuangzhuang's film, "The Warrior and the Wolf", is one of the many hopefuls.

The 66th Venice International Film Festival will run from September 2 to 12. An international jury chaired by Chinese-American filmmaker Ang Lee will present the Golden Lion award on the last day.

Italian epic comedy "Baaria - La porta del vento" and Chinese romantic feature "Chengdu, I Love You" are the opening and closing films, respectively.


Woohoo, I want to see that Accident film now. Didn' t know it had Louis Koo. Plus, can't resist anything about assassins. 8D
