[My forever girl crush, yesterday, Beijing.]
It was ripples a few days ago in weibosphere and finally the storm of the longwaited premiere of Late Autumn in CN. They can tell me all they want it takes the nec. time/trouble for a foreign movie to air in CN, but it’s another barely there veil of censorship against Tang Wei. It still makes me queasy in my stomach w/ the disgust. Here she is today, graceful in a white cocktail dress that would be otherwise questionable on many actresses, but she fills in more charm than the dress is designed for. Her usual classy self, my girl crush.
On her role Anna, she said Anna is a very plain, normal, most ordinary woman, with all these outrageous experiences dumping on her, many at the same time, but she’s still this very ordinary girl with basic yearnings in life deep down.
The most romantic split second in the movie, for her, is on the bus, when Hoon gets on again, sits next to Anna and said, ‘ Hi…Oh sorry, I must’ve mistaken you for someone else.’ TW said, ‘That moment, is so tremendously romantic to me, I can’t put it to words properly.’
On the longest kiss in K movie history, she said, ‘ We were both very immersed in our characters, at the beginning of the scene, we both genuinely felt the other person was the only human being on earth I could trust and depend on. That’s how it felt. This kiss expresses so much of the thirst, the hunger for love and being loved, buried so deep inside these 2 ppl. That is why it’s so strange, after the kiss, you would expect feeling a warmth inside, instead at that very moment I felt so cold, freezing cold, a shivering cold I can no longer stand it. I don’t even know why, it seems like a terrible coldness was creeping from the core of my being. That very moment, I was so grateful for this person to be here, in front of me.’ Host and famous CN MC He Jiong asks, ‘ Were you cold before the kiss, or after?’ TW, ‘Afterwards.’ HeJiong, ‘You must be diving too deep into your character!’ To which TW gives her charming chuckles, covering her face to the instantaneous camera flashes all shy. HeJiong, ‘ You must’ve abandoned your whole being, consumed yourself, that’s why you felt the harrowing chill in the air!’
The greet and meet also has the clip of a greeting fr binnie. He said he’s spent 2 months in Seatle for the movie, taking Japanese and English lessons because as a gigilo, appearance and the way with words r the weapondry. It’s been a great challenge and he’s learnt a lot fr the experience.
Many binnieloonie wrote love letters to HB, Mr He and TW read out the letters and promises to send them to his hands.
TW also sends her regards to binnie: ‘From my impression, he is flawless, it’s frightening tbh, but that’s the way he is. I’m actually anticipating him back to our screen very much, after he’s back from his enlistment. Come back to our big screens, our small screens, and see what he’ll surprise us with, present to us after his 18 months, he’s enlisted for 18 months, right? *spazzzz Babe, you really know your binnie trivia WELL!* Show us a brandnew, and different HB. I think this is sth a lot of us, including me, is very looking forward to. I wish he’s happy, he’s healthy and stay the same (perfect) man he has always been.’
A final push for the movie, ‘ Lets bring our heart/(feelings) into the theater. I hope when watching the movie, we can let our heart takes us through the quiet journey. After the movie ends, I wish to ask you a question: Is there a person in your life, whom you would want to say something. A line from the song I sang: 谢谢你走过我身旁, thank you for passing by my side. Is there this special someone?’
The song she sang for the movie:
Damn, now I want a duet of binnie+TW!!!!!!!
Tang Wei is the 4th top search today in weibo, the hunger and yearning for her, for Late Autumn is so massive, like the long passionate embrace Anna and Hoon shared, but in words and praises and adoration. Many TW CN fans know nth of Binnie, but I’ve not seen a review without a good word on him, like of how he caught them by surprise how much he can express with his eyes, what perfectly subtle, gentle, befitting chemistry he has with TW, when they were expecting nth more than another gorgeous himbo.
