Show Luo soldiers on with work despite illness

Album sales of Taiwanese singer Show Luo, also dubbed the Asian King of Dance, had been doing well in recent years.

The singer made his debut in the Japanese music industry with a new Japanese single Dante, a month ago on Feb 15. The single entered the Japanese Oricon Top 10 Chart on the first week of its release, and has sold up to 25,000 copies today.

At a promotional activity for this Japanese single yesterday, the 34-year-old singer let on that he was down with a terrible cold and burst an artery in his eye due to the coughing fits.

Despite his illness, Show insisted on carrying out a LIVE performance to thank his fans -- and a group of 30 Japanese fans who travelled to the country to show their support -- for bracing the 14-degrees rainy weather to attend the event at Ximending, Taiwan. He also specially went down stage to shake their hands.

Show also shared his thoughts about the recent promotional tour in Japan and let on that he had screamed because he was so happy, as it was his first time seeing his own poster on the streets of Japan.

Show added that when he saw his music video playing in Shibuya, he ran around happily and shouted at the top of his voice.

The singer also revealed that he had fulfilled one of his wishes by recording a Japanese single, and has finished recording his next Japanese single.


Landy Wen has Andrew tan under her spell

Landy Wen Lan and Malaysian singer Andrew Tan (Chen Sai On) starred film 3X TROUBLE (HUNG X DAP CHOR) earlier held a Taipei press conference. After her hit film WARRIORS OF THE RAINBOW: SEEDIQ BALE, Wen Lan was invited to her first lead actress role in Malaysia. This time Wen Lan made many breakthroughs with her new film, like playing a corpse and playing twins for the first time. She even had a lot of intimate physical contact with killer Chen Sai On.

Wen Lan and Chen Sai On gave their first time to their new film. The first scene after Wen Lan and Chen Sai On who was making his first film met was a brutal murder scene. Chen Sai On said that it was truly hard to be violent against the petite and sexy Wen Lan. For realism he had to really strangle her neck and pick her up in the air. This scene took several hours and left a lot of bruises on Wen Lan's neck.

In order to create the film's corpse prop, Wen Lan had to be covered with professional prop material and maintained her gesture before the death with any variation. It had to be done over two or three times and took eight hours. Chen Sai On praised Wen Lan as not only a substance singer but also a very professional actress.

Speaking of the different experience between 3XTROUBLE and the earlier SEEDIQ BALE, Wen Lan said that Malaysia's unique local culture was very memorable. She said basically the set was like United Nations, often many different languages like Malay, Cantonese, English and Mandarin were mixed up. Has her boyfriend seen the film? Wen Lan said, "He probably would want to kill Chen Sai On!" Would Chen Sai On like girls like Wen Lan? He said that he could not resist "diva type" girls, unfortunately Wen Lan was already taken.


Her new album is out now~
