I don't like Vivian Chow, but growing up with a generation of boys 10+/- yrs my age made up of 99% her fanboys, my bro included, I know her power over them. Is there any Chinese boys in their 20s, 30s, 40s immune to that pretty doll?!?!??! During my HS years of shameless flirting, one constant with the boys I ended up really dating: Vivian Chow's fanboys. I am married to one now, ie I'm living in the vicinity of the entire terrible CD/VCD collection I wanna burn. And now my Loverboy YH has outed himself he's a crazy fanboy of Miss Chow, she's his very first love/idol of the opposite sex, simply because she's the prettiest thing he's ever set eye on his formative years, to the extent he's written a VChow appreciation prose on her in a magazine. He's a brilliant writer, tbh I'm his forever fan mostly because of his bloggie and weibo. But to have his first 'published' work be about Vivian Chow of all interesting lovely things in your head Loverboy?! After I read it, I know I shouldn't have judged. It's a lovely deardiary entry of a precious memory of a boy falling in love for the first time, and that sweetness of naivete is still living with him.
This is his look for the TWidoldrama….<_< why is he looking like a highschooler when he's hitting 3-0 this year?!?!?!?!?!
The original scan is here, thanks to @眉亚 fr weibo. It's titled: Vivian Chow is the Best. I skimmed it, it's beautifully written, but I can't make myself translating sth with sooo much LURVE for a lady I don't care about one bit. (yeah, call it Jealousy. Because it is.)
The thing that had me squeeing like a pig is YH visited HKG for the very first time in 2003!!! I went back to HK for quite an extended couple of months that year!!!!!! Maybe I've already bumped into him and droolzed at his pretty person. Or better yet, did I harass some cutie like him on those sardine cans like subways?!?! I must've, can't help it. So Loverboy's very first trip to HK is enlightened with the notion this is his idol's hometown. Next time I go back, I will totally chuckle like a crazy woman for no reason random waiting for the light in the crowded streets just coz I have the cute vision of the young pretty boy paying pilgrimage to his goddess' city. Yeah I almost faint with all these crossing of my fandoms when his very first work of Vivian he's watched is Greed of Man with mySeanLau.
I do love him more reading what's in his head. A given.
I love how he puts this whole business of VChow fandom of his:
从头到尾，我喜欢她，就是这么一个庸俗的理由。 – Since the very beginning (of my formative years), I've liked her, that's the only lowly reason, is all.
虽然都在演艺圈，但我从没想过要和她合作。对于她，就应该远远看着，让她漂在梦中。如果真有人找上来，我也不会抗拒。但在此之前，就让她继续作为“梦中情人”存在吧。 -Although we're both in showbiz, I've never thought of working with her. I can only admire her from afar, let her exist afloat in dreams. If someone askes us to collaborate, I won't refuse. IF that ever happens, before it does, let her continue being the 'lover in my dream'!
This is my approach to all my 'idols' as well. I do admire them and they bring me something beautiful to brighten up my day, but that's about it. I savor that distance. It's not often I research into an actor/artist I love, esp them in their own skins in the natural habitat, their art or what I admire of them is enough. It's only that in this day and age with all these channels, we get to know too often too much about them.
每个人都需要这样一个人物、一个异性，能够符合你心中的美好想象。今天再回头看她，当年我所感知的全部是娱乐产业打造的一个完美的产品。她的歌、电影、图片，全都是最美好的，我甚至不知道她有什么才华、她是什么性格、她是怎样的人。但那种美好，让我感念至今。 – Everyone needs a person as such, of the 'opposite' sex, someone who can fulfill everything you desire in your ideal. When I take a good look at her again today, I'm aware everything I know of her is of a perfect product promoted seamlessly by this business' machinations. Her songs, her movies, her pictorials are all epitome of beauty. I don't even know what are her talents (if she has any), her personality, her character, but the perfection she signified, is lingering in my memory till now…and forever.
On the HongShi front:
YH is busily spliting time btn 2 sets: one in shenzhen for his drama with SiWon, being seen filming many scenes with the heroine Wang LD; the other is on the touristy island of HoiNan (fr the PD of Waking Love Up….this looks like an exact replica…argh…)
Doesnt look too happy with his ladyfriend in drama, huh? *it's just me being silly* *buuttt if it's SS taking the sel-ca that so won't be his face, agree?*
SS' first real movie is hitting the theaters, there's a line she's saying in the movie that we can interpret as she's asking ex of her bf Rocky if she's ever loved him.
Oh btw, YH's webmovie will be out 4/27. In it, he is racer Rocky, fyi.
If you go karaoking and pick the song The Season of waiting (whatever its name), the song SS sang for BBJX. They r using this clip as the vid, THIS. Obviously HS shippers r scarily EVERYWHERE:
As for SS' freshest biggest casting rumor? She's going to be in a movie pairing up with ….JetLi! 0_o
The BB gang is still being cute, Damian/PapaKangXi is having a new drama on HunanTV and they gang up asking Papa to come back to the bb palace for dinner:
It's still HongShi related because, he retweeted SS' tweet, not KC's, not Nicky's, not his scummy bff William, but SS. We never expect anything less shameless from you 13!
