News Bites: December 1st, 2014


  • The leading men of upcoming SETTV daily drama, Dear Mom (我的寶貝四千金) made their appearance on the press meeting held on 28th November. Previously, it was revealed that Xiu Jie-Kai (Marry or Not), Melvin Sia (The Way We Were) and Jack Lee (Fall in Love With Me) will play as the love interests of the four daughters and now, they’ve finally revealed the last leading man to join the cast, Duncan Lai (Falling) will be playing as a married man that have an affair with Albee Huang, the third daughter in the family. I love this lineup, the male cast are pretty strong actors. Duncan Lai was great in Falling (含苞欲墜的每一天) as the gentle and warm art teacher that the heroine have a crush on.  However, this time round he’ll be playing a cheating husband so I don’t know whether I’ll be able to like his character. Dear Mom will follow after Love Cheque Charge (幸福兌換劵) and premiere on December 16th. [WOWnews]
  • It was reported that Tender Huang (Big Red Riding Hood) is the action stunt coordinator of the upcoming TTV drama, The New World (新世界). It’s very refreshing to see him back working behind the scenes instead of acting (he was a hairstylist for celebrities before he made his debut). He’s currently starring in a retro singing-themed Hokkien-drama with Jade Chou in Chun Chun (純純). The director of The New World became friends with Tender Huang through their collaboration in Man. Boy (小孩大人) where Tender Huang was one of the lead.On a side note, The New World have recently revealed their action-packed 3-min story trailer on their official facebook page and it looks AWESOME! The first set of teasers didn’t do the drama any justice (it was more like music video instead of trailers..)  [UDN] [Facebook]

  • Jason Tsou who’s currently on the rise through his supporting role in The Way We Were (16個夏天) poses for Taiwanese fashion magazine, Milk. I thought he will make it bigger than how he is now when I first saw him in Black & White (痞子英雄), his role in that drama was the exact opposite of the happy-go-lucky Ah-Qing in The Way We Were and even though he was stiff in his first acting debut, he had pretty strong screen presence, I thought he had strong chemistry with Janine Chang in the last few episodes of Black & White. But anyways, I’m hoping for the best for him and for now, enjoy looking at his photoshoot pictures. [Life News] [Milk Taiwan]
  • On the music section, Taiwanese indie band, Cosmospeople (宇宙人) have recently became the first music band to have ever hiked onto the summit of one of the highest mountain in the world, Himalaya Mountain. It was reported that they shoot an MV and documentary film for their upcoming album. I like that they’re doing something different and meaningful for their MV, I can’t wait to hear to what they have in store for us, I’m such a big fan of Cosmospeople’s funky, jazzy beats. I’m so proud of them. [Epoch Times]
  • Chinese Singer-songwriter, Li Rong-Hao who took home Best New Artist’s trophy in this year’s Golden Melody Awards had recently released his highly anticipated second self-titled album. During the press conference, Rainie Yang who is under the same label as him made an appearance to deliver some gifts for support. To thanks her support, Warner music made a huge“Song Request Contract” for Rainie Yang and Li Rong-Hao to sign on so that he will promise to compose a song for her in the future, HA! Check out his MVs – King of Comedy and Unsuited. I’m definitely in love with his voice which kind of reminds me of Eason Chan’s voice and his first album is still on my music rotation list.
