Clarification on CNY - F4 REUNION

January 12, 2012

Yesterday, news was released in Mainland China and transferred all over about Jiang Su Satellite Spring Festival Concert's Executive Director claimed that they had received contracts from all F4's 4 members for performing 2 songs at the Spring Festival Concert. In the news, it was reported that ZZ was the first one who accepted the offer, and he's so enthusiastic that he even started looking around for the peforming outfits for F4.

Today, Lian He Bao reported that both ZZ and Vanness' agents denied any F4's reunion at Jiang Su Satellite's Spring Festival concert. There's rumor that the plan aborted due to disagreement on talent fees between Jiang Su Satellite and F4. ZZ's agent replied that it was not about the money, but about format and sincerity, as the four parties of F4 have agreement that the next reunion should have some special meaning that it would be either for big charity event or CCTV's well organized Spring Festival concert. At this time, YCX and Zhu Xiao Tian are busy filming movies in Matsu and Heng Dian.

Taiwanese rock queen A-mei Chang Hui-mei has shot her most daring picture since she made her debut in showbiz in 1996.

She has stripped for a photograph.

The 39-year-old was among 40 celebrities helping ambitious teenagers fulfill their dreams.

Most of the stars are from Taiwan but not all of them posed nude for the cause.

Among them are Chinese model Lynn Xiong and actor Huang Xiaoming, Angelababy from Hong Kong, model Sophia Kao and Malaysian Fish Leong.

The others include Vanness Wu, Aaron Yan, Elva Hsiao, Show Luo, Vivian Hsu, Matilda Tao, Wilber Pan, Patty Hou and members of S.H.E. - Selina, Hebe and Ella.

Their photos are being displayed at an exhibition in Taipei, and will be auctioned off later.

All proceeds go to the Realising Dreams Project under the Fubon Cultural and Educational Foundation.

The charitable event was organised by 68 stylists, designers, photographers and directors from Taiwan.

Pop musik: the sound of the charts in … Taiwan

Western media often assume Asian music to be dominated by Japanese and South Korean pop. But a new generation of Taiwanese stars is highlighting Mandarin pop's potential

Western media often assume Asian music to be dominated by Japanese and South Korean pop. But a new generation of Taiwanese stars is highlighting Mandarin pop's potential

Viewed through reports in the western press, the battle for domination of Asia's charts would appear to be a straight fight between established superpower Japan and effervescent upstart South Korea. Rarely meriting a mention is the primary hub of Mandarin pop, Taiwan.
