Korean music video for Still Eating Well (밥만 잘 먹더라) by Homme, a project group formed by 2AM’s Changmin and 8eight’s Lee Hyun. Pretty good song, and the duo syncs really well with each other. MV starring actress Lee Chae-young…
[Update] Added a concept photo with the two guys showing off their chocolate abs (a Korean term referring to the six packs, which resembles chocolate bars).
Chinese movie trailer for Love in Disguise, starring Wang Leehom, Liu Yifei and Joan Chen. The film is Wang’s directorial debut and Liu’s first movie since her act in Hollywood production Forbidden Kingdom…
Old school romance-comedy where a pop star is disguising himself to win a girl’s heart. Despite Wang’s years of acting experience he has never convinced me as an actor… doubt that it’s going to change anytime soon.
Chinese model Angelababy in a Japanese commercial for hair styling brand Vidal Sassoon. She’s been working on-and-off in Japan for some time, but AFAIK this is her first Japanese TV commercial.
A bit surprising to see Angela featuring for a huge brand in Japan. I don’t think she’s that famous yet in the country but the company obviously sees something in her potential.
And of all people, she’s replacing superstar Namie Amuro as the spokesperson. It’s quite a feat, and a huge opportunity from Angela’s perspective. It looks like a gamble for Vidal Sassoon though.
