Liberty Times, September 5

Sep 5, 2007

summary only:
According to today's Liberty Times, about 2 days ago, Jerry formally informed BOF's producer, Feng Jia Rui, that he is not going to accept the role. Upon request, Yan Cheng Xu's agent, Zhang Mao Liang, admitted that the plan wasn't pushed through. The main reason is that the role was set as a college student who likes to play jokes, which doesn't correspond with Jerry's established image. With his age, 30 yrs. old, Jerry should play characters with working experiences that it is not suitable for him to play a young college student. Therefore, the opportunity should be given to a more appropriate candidate. When asked whether Jerry will play Qin Yong instead, Mao Liang indicates that Qin Yong is a possible plan for next year, but for the mean time, only the script was received. Furthermore, Liberty Times reported that Jerry has reached an agreement with Feng Jia Rui that they will work together in another idol drama adapted from a Japanese comic story next year, in which Jerry, for sure, will play a character with working experiences.

The reason is so "Jerry Yan" that as usual he takes the responsibility on himself, instead of exposing other possible reasons
