Money Worshiping Queen, Next TV's Channel Opening Super Drama
Invested 120 Millions To Attract Yan Cheng Xu

Next TV's channel opening super drama, Money Worshiping Queen (kkla:  not official name), has created a momentum even before it starts filming.  Yesterday, the Executive Producer, Chen Yu Shan, indicates that the investment for this drama will be at least NT120 millions, including spending US$80,000 to invite the award winning image stylist, Patricia Field, from Sex And The City to join the team.  The male lead has decided to be Yan Cheng Xu.  According to plan, it will start filming in August and depart to France in Sep.  Its scale has broken TW idol dramas' records. 

Romantic love drama, Money Worshiping Queen, has reached the final preparation stage that outsiders start to guess who will be the male and female leads, and the focus is on Yan Cheng Xu and Shu Qi.   Yesterday, Chen Yu Shan indicates that she did discuss the project with both of them, and now she's waiting for Yan Cheng Xu to accept the offer.  The casting for the female lead has reached the contract signing process, but she insisted on not telling.  She only said, "The female star has certain level of popularity, but sh hasn't filmed any tv dramas in the past."  This indirectly denied Shu Qi's participation. 

Shu Qi rejected the participation in Money Worshiping Queen due to scheduling conflict

Production Fee Will Be NT$6 Millions Per Episode

The script of Money Worshiping Queen was written by producer, Chen Yu Shan.  With 20 episodes of 90 minutes for each, each episode's production fee will be NT$6 millions, which is 3x of the standard amount in idol drama production.  The story was about a girl was abandoned by her mom at youth.  After growing up, she became a model who worshiped money and disliked the poor.  She was even willing to be kept and supported by a middle-age, rich businessman just for money.  When she did a fashion show in Paris, she met a male student who studied music at school over there.  With a lot of coincidence, they started their fatal relationship after a one-night stand. 

Chen Yu Shan said, "Money Worshiping Queen is about how a woman used her tricks to get to her desired position.  These kind of women are everywhere now."  As the female lead is a tall, elegant model, it is unavoidable for people to think about LZL.  When asked whether LZL is one of the names on her candidate list, Chen Yu Shan said, "This name did flash in my brain for a second, but how is it possible?" 

Yan Cheng Xu Secretly Practiced Violin Playing Skills

The male lead of this drama knows French and plays violin.  However, he came from a poor background (from the market/root class), although he looks like a blue-blood, handsome guy on the outside.  According to information, although Yan Cheng Xu has not confirmed whether he will join the cast of Money Worshiping Queen, through the introduction of the famous cellist, Fan Zong Pei, he started the practise on the basic violin playing skills.  Yesterday, he honestly admitted that both sides had contacted already, but it's still under consideration. 

On the other hand, Shu Qi said, "Have to film 2 movies in the 2nd half of the year.  My schedule is full, so there is really no time."  In the drama, there is a magician role, and an A-cast male host will be invited to make guest appearances. 

The production team of Money Worshiping Queen is super.  Other than Golden Bell winning director, Chen Hui Ling, who directed Autumn Concerto, Sex And The City's image stylist, Patricia Field, was also invited to join the team with high fee.  She is going to team with Charles E. McCarry, the Art Director, for producing an international class of idol drama.  In order to fully display the queen's trendy and costly image, the costume budget is estimated to be over NT10 millions.  The Art Director will come to TW for checking out the right locations for filming. 

After reading all the news today, it is so conflicting.

Liberty Times/Singpao:  The female lead will be Shu Qi and her talent fee will be slightly lower than Jerry's, about NT$250,000 per episode.  Chen Yu Shan didn't review the female lead, only said that she filmed movies.  When Yan Cheng Xu heard about the female lead's name, he gasped. 

Lian He Bao:  The female lead should be Shu Qi, but Chen Yu Shan didn't review the name.  Yan Cheng Xu is still considering whether to pick up the role, as he concerns about language barriers, as the male lead knows 6 different languages. 

China Times:  Although the female lead was once rumored to be Gigi Leung or Shu Qi, it appears that Lynn Xiong (kkla:  Aaron Kwok's girlfriend) took the role.

(the following translation was based on Cancankasumi's translation from Japanese to Chinese)

On the 19th, Jerry Yan (33 yrs. old) from F4, a popular group in Taiwan, held a High Five Session at the bookstore in Ginza, Tokyo, for promoting his photobook, 9314 Man And Boy.  F4's 4 members, who played the Taiwanese drama, Meteor Garden, develop their career seperately at this time. 

This photobook's Japansese version is based on the Taiwanese version published in April, and it includes the Japanese translation and new editing.   For this new photobook published after 9 years, Jerry indicated with a smile, "To me, it is a very important photobook.  Hope you can see my growth."  For the reason why he likes the cover picture a lot, it's because he felt that "his ordinary self looked old, but in the cover picture, he looked very young." 

Today, 5000 fans attended this High Five Session, which has been the largest scale among the Chinese artistes.  Females, who were holding the photobooks, queued excitedly. 

Asahi TV News also reported yesterday's High Five Session.  However, other than 9314, as what Liberty Times reported, Asahi News also reported the part about LZL, such as "Whether to meet with LZL?", "Whether to watch her Japanese drama?", etc...  Same as NikkanSports' news on Jun 20.  Agree with some sisters that Japanese news' focusing on Jerry's gossips is like the last piece of peaceful land has been polluted.

Yan Cheng Xu Doesn't Like?

Yan Cheng Xu Doesn't Like?

Gigi Lost [My Queen]

Chen Yu Shan, the producer who made Ruan Jing Tian and Yang Jin Hua popular, will change her batterfield to Next TV (kkla: not offiical name and a new tv channel/station.  Read that Next/One TV is under the same corporation as Apple Daily and Next Magazine) organizing the filming of a new drama, Queen Of Excessive Spending.  It was supposed to pair Yan Cheng Xu with Gigi Liang Yong Qi, but it was rumored that Yan Cheng Xu didn't like this pairing. 

Coincidently, Liang was out at the end, and it is unavoidable for others to suspect whether there is any connection.  However, through his agent, Ying Chun, Yan Cheng Xu responded, "The discussion was just started.  It is still at the very beginning stage.  Why would we have any comments on the cast?" 

Chen Yu Shan was previously Sanli's Settv Director.  The dramas produced by her, such as Post-it Girl, My Queen, Autumn Concerto, etc..., all quaranteed to have good ratings, and she even made Ruan Jing Tian, Yang Jin Hua, Wu Jian Hao, and Ady An to reach the height of their career.  Queen Of Excessive Spending is the 2nd sequel of My Queen series, about a story of a top class caviar girl. 

According to source, last month, Chen Yu Shan and the drama's Director, Chen Hui Ling, especially flied to HK to discuss the details with Liang Yong Qi, and even the schedule and talent fee were agreed, only left the contract to be signed.  During the discussion with Liang, it was stated that the male lead would be Yan Cheng Xu.  After Liang Yong Qi left her schedule open, things had changed.  Liang's side received the message of working together some other time.  Furthermore, information also indicates that as Yan Cheng Xu is very careful, so regarding who is the female lead, and whether she is suitable for him, he cares a lot. 

Chen Yu Shan said, "Gigi is always one of the candidates on my list, but now the female lead will be another person.  Also, Yan Cheng Xu is not confirmed yet.  This news is just too outrageous."  Liang Yong Qi's agent, Ah Shi, confirmed having discussion with Chen Yu Shan, but she said, "Gigi has to release her album.  She also has 3 movies in the 2nd half of the year.  Actually, our schedule is full." 

For Yan Cheng Xu, he indicated that Chen Yu Shan and he are good friends, but when the discussion for the drama has just started, negative news like this came out already.  It is really hard to understand.  Like there's news before reporting that he would film Prince of Taipei Coffee Shop, actually he didn't accept the invitation.

Yan Cheng Xu Released Electricity 5000 Fans Paralyzed Ginza

Yesterday, Jerry Yan Cheng Xu held a High Five Session in Tokyo. 5000 passionate Sakura fans attended and paralyzed Ginza, and even police were requested to maintain the order. During interviews, it gave him headache when the media was too interested in the topics about his ex-love, LZL.

Questioned about his love life, Yan Cheng Xu asked for a break

In the interview before the session, when the media asked the sensitive questions about his love life, Jerry asked for a break quietly, "Is it ok not to ask too many questions?" When asked "LZL is also in Tokyo now for filming the Japanese drama, is there a chance to meet?", he reluctantly answered, "We haven't contacted for quite sometime already." The media asked again, "Will you send her a copy of your photobook?" and he answered, "Haven't thought about this." When asked "Have you watched LZL's Japanese drama?", Jerry indicated, "Have watched the drama on tv, but didn't wait for her appearance and I was called to work already." He seemed to avoid the topic intentionally.

Lastly, when he was asked "Do you want to court a Japanese girlfriend?", Jerry thought for a while and chose to answer without pleasing anyone "Well, let me think about it."

Japanese version of photobook
5x the price

Don't let LZL have all the glory, Yan Cheng Xu was labelled by Japanese media as "Lover In Asia", and he actively invades the Japanese market, promoting his newest photobook, Japanese version of 9314 Man And Boy. The photobook's price was set at NT$499 in Taiwan and its price has become 5x in Japan (6800 yen = NT$2400). Regardless, fans didn't hold back when supporting their idol. Some even bought three at one time.

Yesterday, Jerry went to Ginza for having close contact with fans who have bought the photobook. Jerry fans from all over Japan gathered at a bookstore in Ginza, crowding the whole pedestrian area in front. 5000 queued to get in having Hi Five and it lasted for 5 hours. As long as fans can have the chance to interact with idol, it doesn't matter how long they waited, they didn't feel tired. Instead, they felt satisfied and excited.

It's about Jerry's calling 3 participants in the session. In the clip, there were the 2nd and 3rd participants called by Jerry. For the 2nd participant, Jerry asked her what she was doing. She answered that she was attending Jerry's session. Then Jerry joked, "Oh, Jerry? He is famous." As for the 3rd participant, she didn't pick up the phone the first time, and Jerry was afraid that a wrong number was called, so he hung up and called again. When the 3rd participant picked up, Jerry joked with her and asked her to eat out with him. Tina also commented that Jerry's Japanese and pronounciation has improved quite a bit.

Other information from okarei who attended the session(s). In the sessions, Jerry has confirmed that he will film a drama next outside of Taiwan and not in Japan, he didn't specify whether it's a movie or tv drama. He did clarify that his stubble look does not concern with any future projects. He only felt that he wanted to look more mature as he has aged.

In the 2nd session, Jerry asked the participants which look they liked more, indicating by clapping hands. The applause for the clean look was much longer than the stubble look's.

At first, fans didn't realize what that was, but after it was introduced to squeeze out the juice, then they realized that it was a manual juicer. Lastly, a picture of electric juicer was shown. Jerry introduced it as something he carries with him wherever he goes. Fans were amazed how he could carry it with him, as it's big.
