"The Little Tigers" to take stage on CCTV gala

1990s Taiwan pop idol band "The Little Tigers" will reunite for the 2010 CCTV Spring Festival Gala, following the upcoming comeback of semi-retired pop queen Faye Wong on the same stage, China News Service reports on Tuesday.

Alec Su, Nicky Wu, and Julian Chen of the former boy band trio are now working with different agencies, which are all supportive of the prospective reunion and will manage to fit it into their work schedule.

Singer-actor Nicky Wu who is busy shooting his late project in Hengdian, Zhejiang, confirmed the news, adding he was nervous as the gala program will be broadcast live. Another member, Julian Chen expressed his delight at the reunion and revealed his agent is working on it.

It is yet to be discovered whether "The Little Tigers" will reprise their hit songs, while that's what many netizens are hoping for.

"The Little Tiger" was formed in 1988 and disbanded in 1995. It was the first singing group to debut in the Taiwan music industry. They enjoyed great success and ushered in a new generation of Taiwanese pop culture in early 1990s.

JJ Lin’s releases new MV for “Jia You” single!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It’s been a great week for JJ Lin fans this week. Not only did JJ release album lucky number seven exactly fourteen months after his 2008 album “Sixology”, but he also treated his fans to the release of a new MV to his second song “Jia You” shortly after. Unlike his previous orchestrated ballad single from the same album, “Jia You” incorporates a more R&B vibe with soft synths, a soothing piano accompaniment, and light drum beats. Throw in cameo rapping by hip-hop artist MC HotDog, and you have yourself pure audio bliss.

For the new MV, JJ once again gets to demonstrate both his acting prowess and smooth dance moves that has served him well in previous MVs. This time, JJ plays the part of an unassuming gas station attendant that spends his off-days at a coffeehouse, usually browsing his Facebook page on his Mac. While on the surface it may seem like a strange plot device, it works well as it fits nicely with his interactions of the other characters in the story.

Not only do we have an MV that provides an entertaining and unique story, but we are treated with a wonderful “soundtrack” that accompanies the unfolding plot. How awesome is that?

Seriously, it’s a good time to be a JJ fan.
