according to a Jerry's USA fan posting at nbbbs, a friend told her they saw Jerry at San Barbara (abt 2 hours drive from Pasadena) on 12/28, Jerry's companion was a male & female, the female looks like an abc (american born chinese). at 1st she didnt believe her friends & said they must have been mistaken. but it seems that its quite believable that Jerry is in the US after the Pasadena cinema sightings on 12/31.

thanks to maria123456 of Jerry's harbor for sharing
Can't even convince myself to say. today, 12 noon Los Angeles time, about 1:30 pm December 31 together with my family, we went to Pasadena movie theater, where not many moviegoers are watching. When I was lining up for the drinks at the soda counter, I felt a very handsome man who passed by my side, wearing a Chinese green jacket and army pants carrying a brown travel back pack. I was behind him and there was blond stands on his hair. I also thought he was a Caucasian handsome guy and was so surprised when he turned around and faced me, I was about to completely fall to the ground. "Its Jerry Yan!! It's not really true that this would happen, isnt it? That I really want to just vanish!! But it's really him!
I immediately told it to my family and all of them didn't believe it. Neither did I so I went to peep again inside the movie theater. I suppose he would surely be watching the "Huang Jin Jia" movie and hoped he would come in. Later, he really did came in, held a bucket of popcorn, soda and his male friend came with him, probably an assistant? they sat beside the aisle. When the film ended and about to go out, I walked out until I reached Jerry's back. In a low voice I called him "Jerry". He turned around and I immediately said "Happy New Year!" He felt shy and a little surprised, smiled and returned to say a phrase "Happy New Year".
Afterwards he waked away. I followed him with my eyes as he went inside the Comfort Room.hehe. Then after that I saw him leave the theater... a really very odd experience, consider it a New year gift!
I'm not really a Jerry fan, but I really like Jerry so I thought of sharing this to everyone. Fans do know that Jerry is in L.A, right? However, I was really gor scared that he was really very handsome! I imagine him a little lean, well-vigorous, good mood, so Jerry fans can all feel relieve.
Please excuse my fast words, I still a little excited!!
Happy New Year to all!

Rumors say that F4's Jerry Yan afraid
he won't be able to join the idol drama
Rumors on Taiwan's travel tour project for F4 "reunion" endorsement is on the rocks as the Tourism Bureau finds the script hard to produce and Jerry's schedule is always unavailable. However, Angie Cai guaranteed yesterday that that they would overcome all difficulties to let F4 act all together.
F4-endorsed 2007 Taiwan travel tour project is a showbiz major event which includes plans for commercials, an idol drama and concert tours. However, there are rumors that the script is not yet finished plus the fact that F4's schedules can't be synchronized and Jerry's commitment to join is still not confirmed. A Tourism Bureau staff said that the proposals still had no definite confirmation if F4 would all act. The Bureau is quite concerned on the script's contents. If F4 will all act simultaneously, the script must be suitable and must produce the needed results on best promoting Taiwan. In addition, it must also be televised before the year end. If not, the contract would be off.
But since November last year until yesterday, details for the project have not yet been finalized, including the script . They only said that F4 are all abroad, and difficult to have a common time together.
Angie Chai then said that they had already submitted 3 scripts, and will announce the final talks with the Tourism Bureau by mid-January, as well as discuss over with all F4 members. She said that the script is still pending, so all their roles are still too early to talk about. Thus, rumors on "not joining" should not be taken as final.
The project has a budget of 85 million but since the trending doesn't seem to reach the goal, sponsors are now afraid they might gamble some big money. Angie Chai said that she talked to Jerry over the phone and he already promised he would join. She said that Jerry had no clear plans for his projects this year so he will do his best to cooperate. If the script is unsuitable, they can use other forms even just a guest performance. Jerry would also help in lifting it up. Chai added that uniting F4 is really very hard, and just writing the script took 3 months already. She estimated that after the Chinese New Year they can already select some suitable story details.
Chai also expressed that for this project, there would work each month that can extend up to one year to produce the best quality. On rumors that Jerry won't join, she reasoned out that since F4 are all giant stars now, attention is put to them, but she is rather confident that after she meets with F4, everything would change brightly.
Meanwhile, Jerry's assistant Fenny said that Jerry already more or less understood the project plans. But since he hasn't received the copy of the script yet, he still can't confirm and decide if he would join. She said, "According to our understanding, it's not only Jerry, other people are also discussing to them." Fenny revealed that Jerry is out of the country for a project, making preparations for his photobook. An internet fan talked on how she saw Jerry in Los Angeles and a male staff watching "Man Cheng Jin Wears the Golden Armor". After she recognized him, Jerry just shyly greeted the fan "Happy New Year!"

Remember the Tw Tourism project & how previously it was written that F4 as Ambassdor not only has to film a drama together, hold concert together, appear for promo together, etc, etc
And how it was written that Jerry's not joining, Jerry's sick, etc, etc, & that's why the filming is postponed??? And Jerry reply was he has not seen any script, not informed of the schedules, details, etc, ect??? And that even the Tourism ppl said they have not seen any script yet.
Well, in the above article, AC has said that she has already prepared 3 scripts & will be giving it to the authority THIS MONTHh. And that it took her 3 months to get the scripts ready as its a diffcult project, blah, blah, blah. So what's the nonsense earlier abt the filming being postponed bcos Jerry is sick, Jerry has not agreed, etc, etc. So Jerry is telling the truth when he said he cant give an answer as he has not seen any scripts or informed of any schedules & arrangements.
And in the above article, the Tourism ppl said they have never said they insisted on all 4 must appear together as Ambassador in all events. That their utmost concern is the script, whether its a good one & can reflect the purpose of promoting Tw for tourism. And it seems the Tourism authority is rather unhappy with Comic giving excuses such as F4 is overseas, etc, etc.
And AC has said she has spoken to Jerry, Jerry said he will try his best to coordinate as he already has other prior jobs on hand. I think this is very reasonable as 1stly, Jerry did not know that F4 was being proposed for Tourism Ambassador until it was announced by AC in the media. 2ndly, cant expect Jerry to just sit & wait & cancelled all his other projects. Even in the end, if Jerry cant participate as a Tourism Ambassador if it clashes with his other prior upon agreed on projects, Jerry is in the right.
According to Fenny, Jerry is not the only one still in the midst of discussion abt this project (meaning discussion is still going on with other members of F4).
I feel more relieve now that the TW Tourism ppl has spoken out abt not requiring all 4 to appear together in all activities. At least if Jerry takes up this tourism project, he is not tied down totally by it.
no wonder AC been labelled sort of names by Jerrys fans..some call her Queen of Evil,
some Anti Christ (AC)...well Jerrys fans really dont like AC (Angie Chai of Fulong-Jerrys old management) she always make Jerry as a scapegoat and blaming him for everything..

related to the above article....
posted at asianfanatic.net.
From the above Liberty Times' news article, we realize that:
1. AC has not submitted any detailed plans or script for the Tourist Bureau to review.
2. When Tourist Bureau questioned, AC has been giving excuses, such as Yan Cheng Xu is not available all the time, F4 are all abroad, it is hard to arrange F4's schedules, Yan Cheng Xu has not confirmed to participate or not, etc...
3. After hearing the excuses, Tourist Bureau indicates that the contract/agreement didn't specify that all 4 members have to participate, so the excuses of Yan Cheng Xu this or that can't stand. The Tourist Bureau clearly states that it concerns the script the most, and signals AC to submit the script and detailed plans, and to make sure that the drama will be broadcasted by the end of 2007, otherwise, if the contract/agreement can't be completed, the production company needs to pay a large sum of fine.
4. Fenny clearly indicates that Jerry has not received the script. Whether he will accept the role is depending on the script. Being tired of being used as the excuse for the delay of her plans and AC's faults, Jerry states that he is willing to participate and he will try his best to cooperate. If he approves the script, he will accept the role. Even if he doesn't approve the script, he will participate by guest appearance. Therefore, it shuts AC's mouth for accusing him of not willing to participate and being the main problem of the project's delay.
Really admire Jerry's intelligence!!

The headline of today's Liberty TimesEntertainment King Was Criticized For Not Keeping Old Relationship In Mind Yan Cheng Xu Cruel-Heartedly Rejected Chai Zhi Ping
F4's Reunion To Endorse Tourism Aborted
In the news article, the reporter wrote that as Jerry refused to participate in the Tourist Bureau's idol drama, Jerry was criticized for not keeping the old relationship in mind, and the rough relationship between Jerry and AC has become the topic again.
According to plan, the Tourist Bureau provides NT$80 millions of fund, and the idol drama "Wish To See You In TW" is supposed to start filming in June this year. Since the beginning of this project, Yan Cheng Xu had been targeted as the main lead. Although there were rumors of his having scheduling problems, it seemed that the problems can be resolved sooner or later. However, when the reporter checked with Fenny yesterday, she clearly stated, "Yan Cheng Xu won't play in this idol drama. He has already had other plans."
AC indicates that even missing one member in the drama won't break the contract. As Jerry turned down the role, Zaizai will be the main lead now. AC mentioned, "Zaizai's market price/value does not lose to Yan Cheng Xu's." Other than the idol drama, the endorsement project also includes concert tours, domestic and international press conferences, and commercials. Fenny said that other parts of the projects are still under discussion.
According to the Tourist Bureau, there should be one press conference in TW in the first half of this year to announce F4's being the TW Tourism Ambassadors. Then there should be a concert/concerts in TW to attract more than 10,000 fans to visit TW and ...
Regarding F4's endorsement fee, it is NT$30 millions. As Jerry won't participate in the drama, his endorsement fee will be change.
1. If not all 4 members are required to participate in the drama and missing one won't break the contract, then how come AC keeps blaming Jerry for not accepting the role?
2. Didn't Xiao Zhi always say that F4 should have equal parts and talent fee in the drama and market? Now it was written that initially Jerry was the main lead, and then now Zaizai is the main lead after Jerry rejected the role, then what happen to Vanness and Ken? Did AC try/intend to prepare a script which has suitable roles for all 4 members at all? Or did she prepare a script to have one main lead in mind the whole time?
3. A few days ago, Fenny said that Jerry had not received the script, and he had not decided to accept the role or not. Today, the storyline of the Tourist Bureau idol drama has come out, and Fenny said that Jerry decided not to participate in the idol drama. The offiical reason is that Jerry has other working plans, but ... , haha... I really admire that Jerry has the guts to insist on what he thinks is right.
The storyline, are you ready? A girl lost her memory, so her boyfriend brings her to different tourist sites in TW to refresh her memory. Sound familiar? Does MG2 remind you anything? I can't believe after AC used several months to come up with a story like this. Fenny said that Jerry won't participate in the idol drama, but other endorsement activities are still under discussion. According to the Tourist Bureau, there may be 4 F4 concerts in TW this year. Now as Jerry rejected the role, Zaizai will be the main lead.
I am quite happy with the outcome, as now Zai is the main lead, and hope that Jerry won't be attacked as much. Whenever Jerry is available, he can still participate in the concert(s) and commercials, and endorse TW for the Tourist Bureau.

Jerry Yan refused to rekindle old friendship with Angie Chai
and F4 to shoot idol drama with one member less
January 8, 2006
In an interview in Singapore, Jerry Yan expressed
his wish to play in an major action movie
Angie Chai entered an agreement with the Tourism Bureau to promote Taiwan with F4 as endorsers, which includes plans for them to act together again in an idol drama. A few days ago, news released that all parties are now preparing to arrange their schedules. However yesterday, rumors leaked that Jerry's assistant said that Jerry had already arranged for other commitments, and would no longer join in this project, thus, the original target for a male lead is now handed down to Vic "Zaizai" Chou.
This year, the Tourism Bureau thrust is to promote to the Koreans and Japanese. With F4 as endorsers, it hopes to strongly attack the target market. Having a budget of $80 million, Angie Chai had already started preparations for the idol drama, target to begin shooting by June, tentatively entitled "Wish to See You in Taiwan." The plot revolves on a girl who lost her memories, and in order to help the girl regain her memories, the male lead helps her by going back to the places they had gone through.
The project will include concerts, local press conferences, as well as TV commercials. Jerry's assistant said that talks for these things are still under way, so the viewers will have the chance to see F4 together again in front of the TV screen.
The Tourism Bureau said that at most, their first press conference for the project will be during the first half of their annual meeting in Taiwan, where they would announce the appointment of F4 as ambassadors. Concerts will be held in Taiwan, which hopes to attract more than 10,000 fans to come as tourists to Taiwan. With a planned 4-day concert, it hopes to gain $400 million in revenues. As endorsers, F4 will be paid $30 million each. But now that Jerry refused to join, the F3 talent fees will be adjusted.

I support Jerry's decision. We all know that AC's team is very different from The Hospital's production team that she always uses rumors of affairs and conflicts to gain publicity for dramas. If Jerry works with her, I am sure news such as Jerry's having conflicts with her and/or F3, being difficult, etc..., will come out. Besides, I still remember how MG2 was boycotted by some F3's fans, and how Jerry was attacked for being the main lead but the other 3 were not. If Jerry was the main lead, he would be attacked by some fans from the beginning of filming until the end of broadcast. However, if the script is good, regardless of all the above concerns, I am sure Jerry won't hesitate to take the role. As usual, he is the target of attacks and blames, regardless he takes the role or not. With this poor storyline, why bother to involve himself in all those troubles for extended period of time?
Jerry is smart. He knows where his heart goes. By decreasing the contact time but not refusing other short-term endorsement activities, it will surely decrease the problems as well. We don't need to concern too much. We just need to support Jerry and his decisions.
My first question remains. If it is not required to have all 4 members in the drama, why news like the followings was released in this time sequence:
- FL requested equal parts and talent fee for all members of F4
It was reported that Jerry requested higher talent fee (close to half of it)
- AC said that the talent fee is based on the parts of each member
- AC's writer, Mag, blamed Jerry in her blog e,D S R ]
- It was reported that the Tourist Bureau expressed that it does not require all 4 members in the drama and Jerry said that he would show up as guest even if he can't be the main lead.
- Zai announced that the focus of his career will be in Japan this year.
- It was reported that Jerry didn't accept the role or keep old relationship in mind, and the script with only one main lead was out and Zai is the main lead.
- Isn't the above a drama by itself?
It is funny! Some jms like No Well wrote that as AC likes to "act" so much, why doesn't she play the female lead in the drama being the main lead's mother who has dementia or Alzheimer's? Then the main lead brought her everywhere to regain her memory.- It was reported that Jerry didn't accept the role or keep old relationship in mind, and the script with only one main lead was out and Zai is the main lead.

Boyband F4 set to charm Japanese, Korean tourists
PROMOTIONAL TV SERIES:The project is sponsored by the Taiwan Tourism Bureau and will feature online participation in the selection of shooting locations By Shelley Shan
Wednesday, Jan 10, 2007, Page 2
F4, a popular Taiwanese boyband, have captured the hearts of young women around Asia with their boyish charm, and now Taiwan's tourism bureau is hoping to cash in on the band's popularity to promote the nation's tourist industry.
Taiwan Tourism Bureau Director-General Janice Lai confirmed yesterday that the group would be recruited to play in a television series called Wish to See You in Taiwan.
The project is sponsored solely by the bureau, she added.
Lai said that the series will include 25 episodes, with a majority of scenes filmed at selected tourist attractions around the country.
It is going to be a "touching romantic story," Lai said.
"We will place the information on our Web site [www.taiwan.net.tw] and ask for opinions about where the filming should take place," she said.
The series will target tourists from Japan and Korea, Lai said.
It is scheduled to be broadcast in both countries in November.
Viewers in Taiwan, however, will not be able see it.
Based on the contract between the bureau and the production firm, the F4 team will meet with their fans at promotional events organized by the bureau.
The bureau owns the copyright for the series and will make a 30-second TV commerical from program content for use in Taiwan and elsewhere.
Lai said she is confident that F4 will draw the attention of female tourists from both Japan and Korea.
She said one time she was invited to be the guest of honor at an event attended by Vanness Wu , one of the band members, and his fans. Lai was asked to draw lots to pick fans to come onto the stage.
"When those lucky few got to meet Wu personally, they were so excited that they began to cry," Lai recalled.
Overall, the project will cost the bureau NT$80 million (US$2.5million), which will cover the production and the budget to buy air time in both Japan and Korea.
Lai said many people may think NT$80 million is a huge sum. They may also ask why Taiwan cannot have documentaries broadcast on the Discovery or National Geographic channels, as Malaysia and other countries have done in the past.
"Air time in Japan and Korea is really expensive," Lai said. "And the tourism bureau in Malaysia has an annual budget of NT$7 billion, which is seven times more than we have."Earlier this week, media reported that Jerry Yen, the most popular member of F4, might not be able to act in the series because of a schedule conflict.
Chai Chi-ping, the producer of the series, said in an interview in the United Daily News that Yen has already promised to participate.
The boyband would not breach the terms of the contract, she said.
