Jerry Yan returns to Philippine TV

March 29, 2009, 11:32pm
The battle to be the greatest player has yet to begin... The hottest Taiwanese hunks join forces in ABS-CBN’s “Hot Shot.”

One will prove he's still the best. One will challenge the best to get the ultimate stardom. One will make his way to the top.

Who among Asia’s hottest heartthrobs will claim hardcourt supremacy? Find out in the highly anticipated premiere of Taiwan’s biggest and most expensive drama in 2008 — “Hot Shot.”
For the very first time, “Hana Kimi’s” lead hunk Wu Chun, multimedia superstar Show Lo and Asia’s Ultimate Heartthrob Jerry Yan will join forces to give you an exciting series jam-packed with romance, comedy, and hard court action.

This early, the show continues to generate warm feedbacks and reception from thousands of Asianovela fanatics who just cant wait to see this surreal gathering of Asia’s finest actors.

In a school where academic reigns supreme and sports are relegated to a dusty corner of the campus, Zyrene (Coco Jiang) vows to revive the basketball team by becoming the head coach. She recruits random students for her team and one of them is Andy (Show Lo), a country boy who is passionate for basketball but has no skill. Li Ying’s hope went into high gear when Cody (Jerry Yan), a legendary basketball player, transfers to their school.

The two will make a great tandem in the hard court but what if something (or rather someone) gets in the way of their friendship? Andy will fall for Cherry (Zhou Cai Shi), a girl who reminds him of his childhood friend and the same girl Cody’s heart is beating for.

Things heats up even more when Tyrone (Wu Chun) enters the scene and do everything he can to beat Andy and Cody.

Both campus cagers can surely win the game of hoops but how will they fare in the game of love?
Don’t miss the intense premiere of “Hot Shot” today, March 30, at 5:15 p.m. in Hapontastic before “Pinoy Bingo Night” on ABS-CBN, the first and true home of Asianovelas.

Jerry Yan's new drama; pairs up with Ella

Jerry Yan belongs to the No. 1 big brother category in the idol drama market, and his scripts on hand have never stopped. Just recently, he declined 2 idol dramas ‘Good Health & Fortune’ & ‘Paper Rose’ and now there are rumours that another new drama ‘Just Want To Depend On You” also has their eyes on him, the drama crew is planning on pairing him with Ella.

In the drama, Jerry will play a lawyer. On the 27th, his manager Fenny expressed: “We’ve seen the script, but nothing has been confirmed yet, he’s also planning on filming a movie soon.”

Besides recording for his new album, Jerry will also be guesting in Jay Chou’s idol drama ‘Pandamen.’ Earlier, he and Will Liu filmed an action scene, and the 2 fought for almost the whole night. Will revealed that he got bruises all over his arms and legs, and he even got kicked in the face. At the time he had a feeling of dizziness: “Filming martial arts scenes requires thorough protective measures, otherwise it’s very easy to get hurt.”

‘Pandamen’ has recently been filming some scenes in Xia Men. There are rumours that Jay has invited Shawn Yue, Zhou Xun, Wilber Pan, etc to guest in the drama. JVR yesterday expressed: “That’s just the preliminary plan, the full cast list will be revealed one after the other soon.”

Jerry ~ Letting Go of Idol Baggage? U Weekly #171 16th March 2009

如行9年﹐言承旭Jerry不同於一般藝人的高調宣傳﹐他的話始終不多﹐言談的內容和方向也多有選擇﹐為了這次意在新加坡上檔的{ 心星的淚光 }偶像劇﹐Jerry“破例”首開心胸﹐談工作﹑話未來﹐來段真誠的心情物語。他說﹕“談些無關痛痒的事情蠻無趣﹐希望自己每句話﹑每個動作﹐都可以讓大 家看到我的努力﹐看到不同時期下的言承旭﹗”
Jerry Yan has already been in this line for 9 years yet unlike other showy artistes, he still says very little. He is also selective about the contents and bearing of his words. As his Idol Drama {Starlit} will be airing in Singapore, he made an exception and spoke openly about his work. How about some words of sincerity from his heart? He said, ‘It’s rather meaningless to talk about nitty-gritties. I hope that everyone can see my hard work in every word I say and every action that I do. To be able to see Jerry Yan at different stages of my Life.’

重視新劇 Values New Serial Highly
Jerry求好心切﹐2009年開年之作{ 心星的淚光 }在台播出後回響甚佳﹐海外播出版權也都順利賣出﹐這讓“暴龍”龍心大悅﹕“我不敢說這部戲是我最好的作品﹐但是﹐我的投入和對這部戲的期許﹐都比以往的 作品來的更讓我重視﹐因為這是所有工作人員一起努力完成的成果﹐希望我的粉絲我的觀眾﹐都能看到不同以往的我﹐也進一步去喜歡這部戲。”
Jerry has always had high expectations of himself. At the start of 2009 when {Starlit} was aired in Taiwan, it had excellent response. Overseas rights to the serial were also successfully snapped up. So “Bao Long” is elated, “I can’t say this is my best work but I really did put in my best and had expectations for it to do well. It mattered more to me than my previous serials, as it is also the result of all the hard work of the entire crew. I hope that my fans and audience can see a ‘different me’ as compared to before and also to enjoy the serial even more.”

因為重視﹐Jerry格外在乎對戲的要求﹐即便在拍戲時罹患口腔蜂窩性組織炎﹐他依舊忍痛抱病演出﹕“生病的時候工作的確格外辛苦﹐因為吃不下太多東西﹐ 整個人瘦了一圈﹐身體極度的不舒服﹐可是﹐如果我因為身體不舒服就不拍﹐那對整個組劇的組員來說是很不公平﹐不能因我的個人因素影響拍攝進度﹐想到有這麼 多人替我擔心之外還要堅守崗位﹐再怎樣我也不能喊休息﹐忍着痛把該趕上的進度給趕齊。我想﹐在很多時候意志力會勝過身體的痛﹐我在內心告訴自己絕對可以勝 任的﹐這個信念終於讓我戰勝病魔﹗”
As he values the serial highly, he has high expectations. Even when he had *phlegmon of the oral cavity during filming, he beared with the pain and pushed on. “It was really hard to shoot when one is sick. I can’t eat much and really lost a lot of weight. I was feeling so unwell but I can stop the shoot because of that. It’s really unfair to the entire crew. I can’t affect everyone’s progress because of my personal reasons. When I thought of their concerned about me and also at the same time wanting to do their job, I simply can’t rest no matter what. So I just beared with the pain and carried on. I think many a time, I overcame my physical pain with sheer will power. I kept telling myself - I definitely can overcome this. It was with this very thought that I finally won the battle with illness.”

* phlegmon Acute suppurative inflammation affecting the subcutaneous connective tissue.

身體的痛﹐Jerry咬牙苦撐﹐對於因為劇情所需要有的情境﹐他也是量力而為。像是在{心}中他飾演一位鋼琴家﹐他就有另一種的新挑戰﹕“我在劇中飾演一 位天才鋼琴家﹐為了詮釋好這個角色﹐安排了老師教導我彈奏鋼琴技巧﹐只是‘程岳’(Jerry在劇中的角色名字)的鋼琴彈奏技巧實在太厲害了﹐所以在表演 鋼琴彈奏曲目時﹐並不是真的實際派上用場﹐只是讓我可以更投入鋼琴時的氛圍﹐更能把‘程岳’的角色給顯現出來。”
He was in pain yet he pressed on and he also did his best when it came to what was needed in the scenes as well. In {Starlit} he played a pianist and to him it is another challenge. “I play a genius pianist. A teacher was arranged to teach me piano playing techniques for the role. But Cheng Yue is such an outstanding player that what I’ve learnt isn’t of any use in the end. But it did help me get into the atmosphere of piano playing and I was able to show more of ‘Cheng Yue’ as a character.”

Ariel Lin withdraws from acting in Extravagant Challenge; manager angry about unfair treatment

credits to

Same as the above article, similar article was released by China Times on Mar 12 with the headline, "Huang Teng Hao took over Paper Rose and became the No. 1 idol"

It's obvious that this article was once again using Yan Cheng Xu to promote Huang Teng Hao and Paper Rose, whose production is GTV. In the article, it mentioned that it's confirmed that Huang Teng Hao will take over Paper Rose from the No. 1 place, Yan Cheng Xu. As Yan Cheng Xu rejected this project, he has lost over NT5 millions talent fee with his NT350000 per episode. Now by using the cheaper Huang Teng Hao, it has saved the production quite a bit of production fee. For Yan Cheng Xu, he has nothing to do recently that he even played wargame with Zhu Fan Gang who was once involved in a marijuana case.

As Yan Cheng Xu was giving up Paper Rose, it was also rumored that his role in Skipbeat would be replaced by Wu Zun. According to news, Skipbeat will resume it's filming in June at the earliest. After Huang Teng Hao took over the No. 1 seat, he took it easy, when he has received a lot of offers for endorsement already.

Agree with other sisters that the concepts of the one who released this article are funny. Just because Huang Teng Hao "took over" a drama project from Yan Cheng Xu, who is the the No. 1 seat, then Huang became the No. 1 seat as well? When YCX rejects a project, it's him who loses the money, and the production company can save a big sum of money, then why didn't mention how much the production would lose by not able to sell overseas copyrights in high price?

Wonder whether you still remember a piece of news about the initial cast of Paper Rose? At the beginning, the female lead was Ariel Lin, and Ariel's agent wanted to introduce Ariel's little brother in the same agency, Zhang Rui Jia, to be the male lead, but GTV, the production company of this drama couldn't decide, and wanted to invite Jerry as the main lead. All along, Jerry has not promised anything or shown any interest. Now, the male lead has changed to Huang Teng Hao, who belongs to another agency. This piece of information is directly related to the information reported by another news article released by China Times on Mar 13 about Skip Beat.

Astro Special ~ Jerry’s Interview on {Starlit}

【文字版】 言承旭與Astro雙星獨家訪問細談《心星的淚光》的點滴
Astro Special ~ Jerry’s Interview on {Starlit}

Q1 : 覺得自己在心星的淚光表現如何?
Q1 : How do you feel about your performance in Starlit?

J : 覺得還不賴吧!! 嗯。。。應該是說就「心星的淚光」整體上它都蠻好的,包括導演,導演就是很會拍這種...嗯...就是勾人家情緒的一些鏡頭跟畫面。
Jerry : It wasn’t too bad!! Mmm. . .I feel overall {Starlit} should be rather good. Furthermore, our Director is very good at his work . . . mmm . . . he can capture certain scenes which can draw on the audience’s emotions.

With a female lead like Guan Yin, she is actually . . . I feel her performance was very natural and I was able to discover that in fact . . . we have quite a few actresses like Guan Yin who are waiting to catch everyone’s attention.

然後相信大家看了「心星的淚光」一定會很喜歡裡面的這個角色。那包括我覺得其實其他演員都很棒啊! 像包括至愷啊、然後那個董爸啊、還有那個演我媽媽...我媽媽!
I believe everyone would like this role that I play in {Starlit}. Actually I feel that all the other actors are great as well! Including Zhi Kai and then Daddy Dong and also the actress that acted as my mother . . . my mum!

I feel that acting with them, I could capture different emotions and we were able to play off each other.

I was taken aback when I saw myself being such a natural and relaxed Jerry Yan. Mmm . . . I really need to thank everyone, because of them I was able to be better!

Q2 : 這一刻最想飾演甚麼樣的角色?
Q2 : What kind of role would you most like to play?

J : 類似像漸凍人吧! 就是說我覺得就是一些有可能身體上有殘疾或有疾病的,類似那樣。
Jerry : Kinda like someone with *ALS! I mean someone with some illness or a handicap.

I feel that this kind . . . This kind of role is very challenging and I feel that it would be a role that is has a lot of emotional clashes and upheavals . . .

In terms of acting, I feel it would require more layers and is extremely challenging.

* ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) ~ is a progressive, usually fatal, neurodegenerative disease caused by the degeneration of motor neurons, the nerve cells in the central nervous system that control voluntary muscle movement. The Chinese term that Jerry used 漸凍人 jian dong ren literally means a person who becomes gradually frozen.

Q3 : 演出心星的淚光後得到的啟發?
Q3 : After acting in {Starlit} did you get any inspiration?

J : 就是原來言承旭可以那麼快樂的在...(笑)在...在一部戲裡面去enjoy裡面的那個角色的情感吧就是...
That is Jerry Yan can so happily . . . (laughs) be at . . . enjoying myself immersing into this character and it is . . .

Like I feel before . . . I remember long ago . . . when the Director wanted a crying scene, I get very scared that I won’t be able to do that when I was suppose to . . . do you understand? It’s like everyone is waiting for you and yet you can’t shed a tear.

But I feel that in this serial I have gradually enjoyed the process . . . I think I want to act!

There were instances like what ‘my mother’ said at the Press Conference when I was acting with her. There was just the two of us and I cooked for her. Then the both of us just kept quiet but suddenly we stuffed our mouths . . . and then we cried but it looked so awful and ugly.

I have a very deep impression of that. I really enjoyed that . . . and in fact I was glad I could do it.

You could see that Jerry Yan doesn’t have any Idol baggage and in a scene, inside a character, with different scenes and varying plots . . . then he has . . . he has different transitions in his emotions.

然後不只是讓大家看到說他只是一個好像...就是一個偶像而已。對啊! 我希望大家可以看到一個比較真實的言承旭。
So everyone would not only say he is only like . . . a mere Idol. That’s right! I hope that everyone can see an even more true to life Jerry Yan.

Q4 : 談談你現在的近況。
Q4 : Would you like to talk about what’s going with you lately?

J : 接下來會拍新的作品,然後我現在也在...也在嗯...很..很...馬不停蹄的在錄音,因為我接下來可能會出新專輯。
Jerry : I have a new serial coming up and now I am at . . . at mmm . . . recording non-stop as my new album will be out soon.

Then . . . there might be some movie projects. I hope to be able to have different developments in the acting field.

Q5 : 對大馬的觀眾有甚麼話要說?
Q5 : Would you like to say something to the Malaysian audience?

J : 最後想要跟大馬的觀眾朋友說,嗯...其實對呀我能夠...言承旭可以去這邊的機會真的很少。
Jerry : I want to say to the friends in Malaysia, mmm . . . I actually . . . Jerry Yan has very few opportunities to go over there.

I hope that I will be able to go over there because of my new serial or album and I hope to see everyone and share with you, Jerry Yan’s growth.

Then also . . . mmm . . I know many from all over the world has always been supporting Jerry Yan and I wish to say to everyone that I hope that I won’t disappoint everyone and I really want to do better so that I can meet up to your expectations, thanks!

Translation: Sarah @

Jerry Yan has king status in the idol drama world, and his contracts have never stopped. However, he is famous for his ‘turtle feathers’ personality and this has stopped him from making a breakthrough. Even his rumoured girlfriend Lin Zhi Ling has stepped onto the international stage due to whereas he is unable to re-board that peak. In particular, 3 recent idol dramas all have had their eyes on him but he’s missed out again and again. Not only does he lose a pay of $5million yuan, he’s also given the opportunity to Wu Zun, Tender Huang etc.

Last year in November, at a promotional event in Japan, Jerry said: “I’ve felt like I’ve gone down, I’m not good enough.” It seems that even he himself has recognised his future career concerns. According to sources, he once considered whether to accept a drama or not for 11 whole months, and he will request to make changes to the script, even the director, other actors has to get his approval. Although he insists on perfection, his over-critical nature has actually hugely restricted him.

and set their eyes on him at almost the same time, and he considered for a long time. To avoid the problem of filming 2 dramas at the same time, and affecting his overall performance, he gave up and chose to collaborate with Ariel Lin in . In the end, chose star Tender Huang to take over.

However, although Jerry accepted , the drama faced script problems from the Japanese investment side and has now halted filming. There are even rumours that suggest if the drama goes ahead in the future, the male lead might be changed to Wu Zun. Other than this, SETTV’s latest dramas and have both achieved good results, and the following drama is also highly anticipated. The female lead is confirmed to be Joe Chen, and the drama crew previously invited Jerry to be the male lead, but after negotiating for a long time, in the end it did not work out. Afterall, Jerry and SETTV both have quite strong opinions.

His pay for one episode is approximately $10,000USD ($350,000NT) and he’s missed out on a total of $5million for 15 episodes. Yesterday, Jerry’s manager Fenny expressed: “Because has stopped, we’ve approached a new job; if it goes ahead in the future, we will do our best to co-operate with the schedule.” Regarding Tender Huang taking up , his management company expressed: “Currently under discussion, but nothing has been confirmed yet.” As for , GTV expressed that the resumption date for filming has not even been set yet, not to mention lead changes.
