Last night, it was a success! I managed to save all of my files to my usb.
Paging Ms Laurenzaizai, please get my usb and save it on CD (hehe!)

Ok back to the "total disaster thing" ... While saving my files, my monitor went "blackout" again...As i saw my cpu is still blinking i kept on pushing the monitor's "power" button. Glad, everything was saved....wheewwwww....

I tried connecting to the internet, it was successful but unfortunately i cannot open some windows or even view pictures. The more loading of files, the longer (the monitor) won't respond. So, don't try buzzing me at YM or else it'll shut down! (hahaha!) ...Similar incident happened when i tried opening some of my friends' photos...haaah! i saw some, but the monitor wont respond again....hahaha. So i shut my pc down and went back to sleep...

Maybe it's about time to change my daily routine ... work-sleep-???-i don't know... let's see if i can survive this challenge....!!!


Ok gtg, am working for my new article.

F4's new album concert and stamping session has come to an end.
Thank you to everyone who made their way here from overseas, and to Taiwan fans for their support towards them too.

The 2 day events were very lively, very exciting, letting F4 feel everyone's support and love for them.
At the same time, we understand that there are some inconvenience caused to fans during the events , and apologize for it.

A fan was injured and taken to the hospital during Danshui's event, at Ximending's events fans were sad and cried coz they were unable to get their passes stamped.
F4 are sad and apologetic for these news.
Based on the events scheduled timings, F4 seriously co-operated with the events. Believed that fans at the event venue saw that they went to Danshui for rehearsal in the morning on 19th. At Ximending stamping session, throughout the few hours they only rested for 10 mins.
As they have other work after the event, they would rather delay and return to filming set later, and try their best to stay till the last minute in order to stamp as many as they could. They understand fans wish to see them face to face, and to express their support and encouragement.

Regarding the imperfectness of the events, we will reflect on it with the organisers.
F4 promise to work harder, and to repay everyone's love with excellent works.
It's F4 7th year in showbiz, and with fans unwavering support,
besides being touched, they also hope to say to everyone many thanks....
Thank you all for personally supporting every event, and always fully support their works.
Believe that with everyone's company, F4 will work hard in the showbiz and to share their results with everyone.
Hope everyone forget the tiny unhappiness and look forward to the next exciting gathering.
Cheer Up!!!

Fans thronged at the gorgeous venue.

F4 held their first free outdoor concert at Danshui Fishermen's Wharf last night. It was also Zaizai's first time to appear in public after his broke-up. F4 only sang 8 songs but spent $5.1 millions in that 45-minute short show. They attracted almost 20,000 attendances for which, 10,000 were overseas fans. Based on an average $20,000 spending for a 2-days-3-nights tour, they helped Taiwan Tourism to gain another $2 billions! Since it was overcrowded, a Japanese fan fell on jostle and was send to the hospital by ambulance just before the show began.

Ardently promote Tourism

Last night, F4 organized a free outdoor concert of their new album "Waiting for You" on a full scale. In addition to a U-shape extended stage, it also designed with 10 types meteor rain like firework effects. The four united to present 4 group songs and took turn for individual solos.

Zaizai, who recently broke-up with his girlfriend, made prior arrangements to refuse interviews. Yet, he appeared "unusually happy" on stage last night. He greeted fans in Japanese and teased to call himself "She Chang" (Principal) at the beginning of the show. Vanness Wu also greeted fans in Korean, followed with Jerry's greetings in Cantonese. In turn, Ken Chu expressed in English. Ken appeared fine on stage like a "dragon" but limped coming off stage because he accidentally injured while practicing his daily routines.

Yan Cheng Xu ran off-key

When Zaizai sang "Can nian" (Should not), one of the lyrics said, "I thought the happy ending is coming close but it vanished in a flash leaving me a regret." The words seems expressed his feelings for this recent half-month. Jerry Yan showed up wearing a knitted hat embroidered with a "J" at the opening of show. He was criticized as being "schematic" because that was not part of Sony's arrangement. Jerry’s manager Cheng Mao Liang clarified, "The knitted hat was a present from a Mama came from Hokkaido. Her daughter was unable to come because of illness. She hope Jerry can wear it as a blessings on stage." Jerry insisted to put it on regardless how much they spent on his expensive hairstyle. Despites, he kept running off-key on last night's performance. The record company explained that it was their first time holding outdoor concert in such an open area.

F4 will have a Stamping Event at the Red House this afternoon at 3pm. Zaizai promised won't escape from questions again and will clarify with the media.

F4 beats Farenhait No. 1 on the sales chart in Japan

Dong Fang Sunday


After 5 years, in order to fulfill their contract with SonyBMG, F4 released their group album again, and their charm appeared to maintain in the press conference. However, things did change. Luckily, the appearance of Yan Cheng Xu and Vanness Wu hasn't changed much, otherwise, the too skinny ZZ and too chubby Zhu Xiao Tian are difficult to be recognized as the used-to-be handsome boys.

25/12/07 - Blue Lan Plays Himself, Limping And Plays Basketball Against Show and Wu Zun

Jerry Yan, Show Luo and Wu Zun's GTV drama "Hot Shot" has added a new actor, Blue Lan will join in the cast acting has a limping but high-skilled basketball player. He will help Jerry beat Show and Wu Zun at basketball matches. On the 24th, Wu Zun, Show and Jerry came together and filmed a fighting scene, bringing down the happy mood of Christmas.

Blue and Jerry has worked in "Meteor Garden" before. During that time, Da S and Jerry weren't in good terms, and was together with Blue Lan. Now Blue has joined "Hot Shot" cast, in the last important basketball match, he will team up with Jerry, proving the fast change of relationships in the media industry.

After clarification, Blue's manager thought for a pretty long time before accepting the role. The manager did admitted that both of them had some conflict. Blue read the script and like it quite alot because Blue is also flat flooted, so he had to overcome this problem and later on he joined the school's basketball team which is pretty much the same as what he encountered in real life. Blue was really interested in playing the role so he hopes Sanlih's "Bo Li Shi Da Ren" will let him go.

In the drama, Wu Zun and Jerry not only fight with their basketball skills. They also had to learn martial arts. On the 24th, the director added a fighting scene. Jerry did a flying kick to Wu Zun and he retaliated with his bare hands. Both was on par. After filming the scene, both asked if they got injured. Two days ago, Jerry and Show filmed a fighting scene in Tai Chung. Zheng Mao Liang said for all the action scenes, Jerry doesn't use a substitute at all.

Filming Hot Shot, Yan Cheng Xu Has Injuries All Over


In Hot Shot, Yan Cheng Xu has a lot of action scenes, including fighting and playing basketball. As he almost didn't use any body double at all and he insisted to complete the actions himself, the injuries on his body have increased. He didn't only have bruises on his hands, he also twisted his leg, and his fans are very worried. His agent, Zhang Mao Liang, indicates, Yan Cheng Xu has seen the doctor for his injury on his leg and he has had some massage therapy, so fans do not need to worry.

It Is Difficult To Arrange 3 Main Leads' schedule
With 3 A-List actors in Hot Shot, it has attracted people's attention even before its filming. However, they all have other obligations. For stance, Jerry has confirmed that he is only available until the end of February, as he needs to film new tv drama(s) in Tokyo and Mainland China...

F4 releases Album Da S and Xiao S reads - Always Strong Group

F4 releases Album Da S and Xiao S reads - Always Strong Group

Idol pop group, F4 releases album. Waiting For You, after 5 years. Yesterday, at the press conference for Asia, the 4 of them took swords to place into the defense board. It was like all 4 were stronger when placed together. There were lots of different flower baskets from fans from all over the world.

The most "attracting" flower basket was of course from Da S and Xiao S. On it, it was written, "Taiwan's Forever Strong Group, May you all be loving forever." And it was signed off as ASOS, which was Taiwan strongest group, and it sort of torn off F4 a little.

With his girlfriend's flower basket, Zaizai seemed to be even more enthusiastic and told cold jokes and joked that "Very happy that F4 survived till now." Vanness had his hair done orange and was being teased by Zaizai, "Very shy, that's why even his hair turned red" and everyone couldn't help but scream cold.

Jerry, who would be turning 31 on 1st of Jan next year, is now currently rushing filming for Basketball Fire and will not be able to celebrate his birthday. However, when asked if he would love a new relationship, he gave a shocking comment , "Seeing that the other 3s' relationship is stable, i'm in full envy being single." Accidently exposing that F4's relationship had a new level.

Ken Chu, who had lots of negative reports against him, was defending his relationship with Lin Xi Lei. He expressed that because of his body condition, he looked a little swollen. "Can't understand why the media always love to hurt him." Jerry told a cold joke to help Ken write off this, " I always film with lots of metal ropes, i'm also injured "Zhong Shang"!"

Even though all 4 of them were filming, their singing career had quite some achievements. They also brought in 1.5million for being spokesperson for Taiwan's Tourism Board. And all this, took away all rumours of Jerry not wanting to work with F4. Speaking of Fahreheit, Zaizai said, " We are already out in this industry for 7 years, we do not want to be brought to be compared with kids anymore.".


Jerry Yan, Vanness Wu, Gets together to Gain Feelings in MV

Jerry Yan, Vanness Wu, Gets together to Gain Feelings in MV

The night before, F4 was rushing to film the latest MV of Ti Yan. All four of them spend the night to film for 8 hours, tiring all of them out and having different "experiences". Jerry Yan's spirit helped to bring up the atmosphere, holding on to Vanness and singing "brokeback" loudly. Zaizai picked up a reporter's camera and started snapping around to kill his time. Ken practises his skills and not forgetting to put on his lipstick to bring back the image.

Yesterday, the lights at Hua Shan Yi Wen Te Qu was really brightly lited. F4, splited into 2 groups started filming from afternoon and only finished filming at 2am. There was even a luxurious car that allowed them to enjoy being bigshot both in and outside the MV. When Jerry gave a very depressed look while filming, Vanness walked towards him smiling and Jerry had his hand over Vanness shoulders, it seemed like they were very into it. Towards the end, they looked at one another, reminding people of Brokeback Mountain.

Ken, who was very worried about his own "shui zhong" (water retention?) problems, seemed to be very down. He was either alone in the resting room using his mobile phone and practising his Taiji exercise. Just before filming the MV, his make up artist put on a little lipstick for him to look better on screen. Zaizai was so tired that he kept yawning and used the camera and went "secretly snapping" to bring his own spirits up.

F4 Album Launch Press Conference (translation)

F4 Album Launch Press Conference (translation)

NOTE : When reposting into other sites or forums, kindly post the complete text WITHOUT editing and credit it to sytwo@VicChou forum AsianFanatics.net

Hi there all ZZ Junkies and F4 fans. Have just completed the translation for the F4 album media conference, YES!!

Anyway, as I was doing this translation, I reflected on the past 12 months or so, how I first became a ZZ fan and from there began to discover F4. I must say that I am more of a F4 Supporter rather than a fan. The F4 story of 4 guys who suddenly got thrown into the limelight (unprepared) at an amazing speed is a legendary story that everyone who knows something about the Chinese/ Asian Entertainment Industry will be aware of. I was also aware of them but totally not interested before. It was when I got to know more about ZZ that I became curious to find out about F4, these four guys who rose up in fanatical fame together. And was surprised to find out that each of these good-looking guys are not empty vessels, but individuals of unique and interesting personality with different life experiences. I was pleasantly surprised that they are not “boring”, “uninteresting” idols who only have good looks. I think that the sudden leap to fame made each one of them to take stock of themselves and what they want to achieve for the future. And we can see that each one has chosen their own path, working very hard towards their own goals which are really quite different among all four. Each have become a magnet that attracts their own group of supporters and fans, who themselves are probably quite different too. But when the four of them come together (like for their concert and this new album), they are like opposite magnets that stick together and generate an even stronger magnetic field and attraction. And that is F4 to me – 4 unique individuals with their own attraction, but together they create super strong synergy. And I believe that despite having their own path to take, they will never forget and will be forever grateful to be a part of F4, four strangers who became friends and good brothers. Only they will understand what they have gone through, because no one else was part of F4. With that, my hope is that all fans and supporters of either F4 or Vic, Jerry, Ken and Vanness, will also support and believe in each F4 member.

T : Taozi (host)
Z : Zai Zai
J : Jerry
K : Ken
V : Vanness

PART 1

T : Give a hand and welcome Vanness, Xiaotian, ZaiZai and Jerry! It’s a long time since we last met. Let’s start by greeting friends from the media.

V : Friends from the media, how are you! We are …
F4 (all) : … F4!
Z : Yeah..
T : It’s been a long time since we met F4. And at the end, there is an extra sound “yeah” from ZZ. After such a long time, why don’t each of you give your greeting and tell everyone that you have really returned. OK, who will start?
J : Ah… Hello to everyone, I am Jerry. I am very happy to be together again standing on this stage, and to see everyone’s support and well wishes.
Z : Hello, I am Zai Zai. Very happy that F4 can still remain until now without much changes, and in fact has become better and better.
V : Hello everyone, I am Wu Jian How. Really very happy to be together with all three of them. It’s been a long time since we met with so many people from the media and so many fans, and hope that our coming performance/ results will be even better…
Z : ….You are very happy today, right?
V : Yes quite happy.
Z : Even you hair is dyed.
V : That’s right.
Z : A very cold joke.
V : The chemistry still has not changed. Cold jokes are getting colder/ greater. (sytwo : not so sure of this)
T : Right, now Xiao Tian.
K : Hello everyone, I am Xiao Tian. Very happy that we are able to launch our new album and to work together again. Hope you will support us.

Seated at the table
V : Every time we meet again, we are like old friends who have not met for awhile. We will talk about what’s been keeping us busy and any funny things that happened to us. And also talk about the future, with each one of us telling the others what he is doing, and what area that we can work together in the future. We will always be good friends.

Standing on stage
T : Let’s start from Vanness.
V : I will still be focusing on my singing and music. Now preparing for my third album which has just started recording.
J : I was just talking to ZZ at the backstage. In the past few years, my works are very few. Like ZZ, he has filmed 9 dramas/ shows, whereas I have filmed two. So I hope to come out with more works in films/ dramas.
T : I saw in the filming footages of “Hotshot” that you were able to shoot the ball into the hoop with your back facing the post! That was really good.
V : (jokingly) The computer animation is very good.
J : No, it’s actually real.
T : Yeah, “BAM” and the ball went in. Do you have eyes on your back?
(Vic said something to Jerry that we can’t hear and Jerry started to pinch/ tickle Vic.)

(sytwo: hah, hah, so cute. These two are like that all the time)

T : I know ZZ will say something like that. Let’s ask him what are the 2 words he said after this. Now what about ZZ. His results/ performances lately have also been very good.
Z : Lately, I have been (laugh)…
T : Why do you have to say it like that..ah…. “lately”…
Z : No, lately I have been filming the tourism drama and rushing to complete it.
K : Currently, just like him (pointing at ZZ), I am also filming the tourism drama. I am also preparing for another album that is about to be completed, and in March I will be holding a solo concert in Japan.
T : Right and we hope that the Japanese media will help publicize this and that fans in Japan will support this concert.

Seated at table
K : We know that there is a concert and an autograph session coming up. So I guess you are referring to the fans’ traveling schedule, they will probably arrive in Taipeh on 18 Jan and then participate in these 2 events on 19 and 20.
J : This song…. I really like this song. Because when I was recording it, I have this different/ unique (not sure of the word) feeling and the song has its own feel/ style/ uniqueness (not sure of this either), so I am very happy that it can now be introduced to everyone.
T : From his expressions, you can feel that Jerry was touched by this song. ZZ, you have 2 songs right?
Z : Right.
T : I am curious about one of the song called “White (pai)”. In this song there are a lot expressions of love towards a girl. Like white song etc etc (this part I really can’t understand). Did you look into (explore) the white of Hwang Je Jiau (can’t understand this either)
Z : Not really, only look into how “Wu Yue Sheng” filmed the beautiful “bai-ge” film. (sytw : OK, this must be a cold joke from ZZ. I totally could not catch it). Ah…
T : Ai yah…. It’s OK, it’s OK.

(Vanness started pushing ZZ to go backstage)

T : Eh… come let’s talk more about this song.
Z : Why don’t you stand there. I will help you. (asking Taozi to take his place between F3)

Z : (pretending to host) ZZ, don’t tell anymore cold jokes. Now Vanness, you have 2 songs in the album that I feel is really good. Can you please introduce them?
V : Which two songs?
Z : I feel these songs are the most important in the album.
J : What are the name of the songs?
Z : It’s in English, is that possible?
V : Yes, there is.
T : Wow, the host really knows a lot about this album.
V : Yes, and shuai too.
Z : Must do the job well and in a professional manner.
V : I have 2 songs in this album. One is called “Seven Days”, whichis about the relationship between a couple. Many times do not understand a girl especially when it comes to love relationship.
Z : Just let the schedule arrange it.
V : Right, in the 1st week will quarrel, the 2nd week will wait, the 3rd week will reconcile and then the 4th week will quarrel again. That type of feeling.
T : Wow, a very busy schedule.
V : Yes exactly. That’s why it’s better not to date (or be in a relationship).
T : No don’t, that will be too extreme. You’re using the lyrics to express the feelings of fans.
V : Another song is “Listen to you heart”. It’s written by George Chen, who produced “Shoo-bee-duwop” . When I first heard the song, I really have a good feel for it because although it’s a slow song but the composition still allows me to sing and dance at the same time.
T : Would like to ask the host, can I return to my place now?
Z : I think you’re doing a good job.
T : Oh really? But today I feel really “nervous” (she pretended to pronounce the word wrongly like ZZ).
Z : What did you say? I feel that you Mandarin has improved a lot.
T : Yes I am not “nervous” now (pronounced correctly)
Z : So let’s go back to position.
T : Alright. Xiao Tian can you tell us more, you have 2 songs in the album. You are said to be able to express best a man who is cool about things (not sure if this is correct). Especially the song “Wu Shuo Wei” (No Matter)
K : This time I have selected 2 songs that I really like. One is called “Ai bu ding zhi” (Love never stops). For this song I have 2 versions, one in the F4 album and another version in my own album. You can later compare the differences between the 2 versions. The other song “Wu Shuo Wei” is to express my last moments of being youthful…I am approaching my 30’s soon. So this is my last opportunity to sing this type of …
T : Young/ youthful song..

Seated at table :
V : The recording went smoothly although we did not do it together. The first to record… was it ZZ or Xiao Tian?
Z : I think it’s Xiao Tian.
K : I am second.
V : Whose voice did we hear at the beginning?
Z : Oh, that’s me.
V : I think it was Xiao Tian, then followed by whom?
K : I know you are the last.
V : I am not the last. I was the second. So you (Jerry) are the first one. No, no…
Z : It does not matter now (spoken in Cantonese “Mm gan yiu –ah, yee ga”)
V : Right, our chemistry is like that. Anyway, we couldn’t be together as all of us were busy with our own schedule, but before we realized it, we have all finished recording our parts.

V : Even from the beginning when we first know Zai Zai, he has always been like this.
J : Right, from the start he always had this sense of humour.
Reporter : What were the 2 words that he said to you earlier?
Z : What was the question?
V : We said he (Jerry) has eyes behind his back.
Z : Oh, “tien-yen” (I think it means heaven-eyes or god-eyes). Gods will have “tien-yen”.

V : Right, because I am competitive/ ambitious (not sure of this word). Isn’t that so? Not really, I have always wanted to dye my hair. But since joining this industry, due to the roles I play, I was not able to dye my hair completely. Currently I am trying to grow my hair longer, but it’s now neither short nor long which is the most awkward period. Since I can’t cut it, I decided to be more extreme. I really like it. I also did that 3 years ago.
K : Can’t say that Vanness is competitive. He is working very hard for this album and doing this to suit the Korean market which is very demanding. And also to match the Christmas season, it’s the Christmas red.
V : And this will be suitable right up to Chinese New Year. I am doing this to complement the season.

(sytwo : [cold sweating] Wow, their jokes are super cold!)


PART 2

Holding swords :
T : Are you ready? Once you plunge it in, you cannot take it out anymore. Plunge half of it in first. Let starts, three…Don’t plunge it in yet. ZZ you have plunged it in too deep.

(all the media started laughing at Taozi’s words. Sounds very cheeky/ naughty).

T : I’m not trying to give a different meaning. Those guys at the back, I really don’t mean it in a different way. I’m just saying to wait awhile till the photographs are taken before we complete this ceremony. And don’t keep going in and out either (Hah! Hah! Hah!)

Reporter : Do you need to say “don’t wander in and out”?

T : No need, no need. Taiwanese media has such a great sense of humour!

Seated at the table :
K : I just feel that my 20’s is about to go away soon. So I feel nostalgic (not sure of this word). When I came to put on my make-up…. I had a headache this morning ….so I went to the bathroom for awhile. As soon as I went in, his make-up artiste (pointing either at Jerry or ZZ) got make-up into my eyes. So I had to go back to the bathroom. Then as I was styling my hair, the stylist accidently knocked my legs with a chair. So I keep telling myself, “fan-thai-sui” (can’t understand this word at all, sorry).

- The launch ceremony was conducted (can’t hear what Taozi was saying)

J : I feel it is not just myself, but everyone has improved. Like this song that you let me listen to the other day (turning to Vanness), ah that’s a different song….. the thing is all of us have improved. So I tell myself I must also catch up.

T : Thank you Yan Cheng Xu. Next is Zai Zai. Eh…Mr Zai Zai (he wa still talking to Jerry). He (ZZ) said “Good job you know.” At the end we will ask F4 to pose together. We have Vanness who is rather shy so his hair is red. Thank you. And Zhu Xiao Tian. Now let’s have all four together.

J : My birthday wish is for myself to be at… ah, actually I normally work during my birthday so I don’t have much experience/ memories of celebrating my birthday. And I actually don’t really like to celebrate my birthday.
V : Well then I don’t need to get you a birthday gift.
J : Then just give me your autograph, that will be good enough.
T : Don’t like to celebrate birthday but like to receive gifts.
V : Yeah, it’s like that.

J : Actually wanted to go the school and see the kids, but because I went to Japan and had to return to work in Taiwan, I had not had a chance to go. But I still thank them (fans) because this is a very real/ good/ meaningful (not sure of word) type of support. Because you can support us but if we use our combined ability to do some charitable work… this is something that we might not have thought of (or be able to do) in our whole life.

Holding up the promo poster :
T : OK, Jerry please read it out.
J : On 19 Jan Saturday, we will start at 6.00pm at XXX venue.
T : Now would like to ask the host, who do we call up next to read this?
Z : Maybe we call Xiao Tian.
T : OK, can Mr Zhu please tell us about the 2nd event/ activity.
K : The 2nd activity is on 20 Jan Sunday at 3.00pm at Xi Men Ding.
T : Is that OK, Mr. Host?
Z : Not bad (in English).
T : This 2nd activity is very unique. In the album there is a pass. And on the pass are 4 very adorable XXX (sytwo : not sure of this. Could be their caricature picture?) and on that day F4 will autograph it (not sure if they will sign on it or do something else). Congratulations to F4 for their new album and hope these 2 events will be packed with fans to celebrate together with F4. Thank you everyone!

Seated at the table :
J : Yes, I hope to. Now I am busy with work, but I also hope to… and seeing that all three of them are pretty stable in their love relationship, so I will also feel….I am talking about family, about family!
K : Who told you about such things?
V : What are you saying?
T : Be careful about simply shooting and hitting the target.
J : Sorry, I could have offended the other three, ha, ha, sorry. (edited after watching im.tv video)

K : I do not know why. Maybe because currently there is a lot of preassure, they heard wrongly or imagined hearing it, saying that I “mo-ren” (can’t understand this) but I never said it. I am just good friends with her. Plus those kind of report will cause hurt to the lady. So I want to clarify here that we are really just good friends. There are no further development at this point. That’s the way it is. Currently, I am also always imagining this happening, I frequently dream that won the lottery,but when I wake up I realized that I did not even buy any (edited after watching im.tv video). So I can understand that these reporters have a lot preassure from everywhere.

Reporter : Do you have plans for marriage?

K : I do plan to get married but I do not have a partner yet.

= END =

P.S. Sorry again for all the gaps in the translation since I am still learning Mandarin. Please let me know if you see something that needs to be corrected and I will do so.

ENJOY!

NO REPOSTING TO NON-JERRY FAN SITES
2007-12-30

Regarding the group interview in the press conference, Jerry indicates that he needs to work on his birthday, so he is not going to have any special celebration. Actually, he went back to film HS after the press conference/filming the 2nd F4 mv on Dec. 28. When asked about this, Jerry stated, "When realizing F3 all have developed some stable relationship, I quite (envy), actually I don't like to celebrate..." When asked whether he would send a copy of the album to LCL, he answered, "I will send it to all my friends, not just her..." In addition, it was also reported that on the break of filming the 2nd mv, Jerry read some car magazines to kill time. Wonder whether he plans to buy a new car (it's about time).

It was also reported Ken initiated a dinner with a number of press to clear his recent rumors. Whether it has any correlation with the way the news was reported these 2 days? Don't know.

In the future, if you see Yan Cheng Xu, you may call him Yan Headmaster from now on. Yan Cheng Xu will be
31 yrs. old on Jan. 1. Although he claimed not wanting to celebrate, his fans have prepared a big gift for him,
which is the title of Headmaster. His fans have raised RMB$200,000 (about NT880,000) for the reconstruction
of a primary school. In return, the primary school was renamed as "Yan Cheng Xu Chun Lei Primary School".
At the same time, Yan Cheng Xu has become the honorary headmaster of that primary.

Yan Cheng Xu has received the news of his being a headmaster. He is very happy about it and he indicates
that he will visit 'his students' when he has time. According to source, he also made a contribution to this
primary school right after, but he refused to review the amount. Regarding his monthly contribution for charity,
he is a volunteer for the World Vision and he regularly sponsors 10 children.

It was reported that Yan Cheng Xu showed his basketball skills yesterday at the venue and it led to the non-stop cheering and screaming of the 600 temporary actors and fans. On the contrary, WZ and Hu Yu Wei didn't play and they could only sit on the side with disappointment. The shots yesterday were for the first scene in the first episode and Yan Cheng Xu was the focus of the shots... In order to request Yan Cheng Xu's character DFX to play, Wang Jian Min who played the coach knelt down and begged him. With the audience cheering "Zhan Shen DFX", "Yan Cheng Xu" finally got up and started playing in the game. In the last minute, he led the team to win the game. Yan Cheng Xu didn't disappoint the audience, he reached 9 out of 10 of the shooting goals on the average. The venue was filled with applause and cheering.

Upon media's request, Yan Cheng Xu, WZ, and Hu Yu Wei showed the ball-stealing scene. Yan Cheng Xu didn't stop being naughty. In one moment, he hid the basketball in his top and became a big-belly guy. Next, he pretended to shoot the basketball with slow motions. When WZ transferred the ball, he displayed a "Ya" sign behind his head. When he heard the media ask WZ and Hu Yu Wei to be god brothers after playing brothers in both Princess and Hot Shot, Yan Cheng Xu joked, "should act in sex scene togetherï¼?" And he also envies WZ's good figure. When asked which part of his body he likes to improve (the mm tone and figure), he joked again, "To improve my head." This led to non-stop laughing during the group interview.

Jerry's fans have been doing a lot of charity works in the name of Jerry since 2001, mainly focusing on children knowing that Jerry cares a lot abt kids. For the past few years, there have been an ongoing project of supporting poor children in China so that they can finish school. Remember during the Oral B meet in China, the fans arranged for 1 kid representing the rest of the kids sponsored by Jerry's fans to meet Jerry???

According to news, since the filming of HS, Jerry has gained 2kg of weight, although each meal he stops eating at 60% full, as the filming contains a lot of actions. Mao Liang said that the weight gain may be due to more meals throughout the day.
----------------------------------
China Times reported that in order to celebrate Jerry's 31st birthday, yanchengxu.net has raised about RMB$200,000 (NT$900,000) for rebuilding a primary school in Mainland China.
