*Translations* on Fan report
This two days did not have the time to report because due to examinations.Hahaha....Today i'm going to report about my visit to Che Dun on 31st.In the last day of 2008,i went to Che Dun Road..Usually i set my alarm 11am in the morning but that morning i woke up at 6.40am.CEO sure has the big influence!
However because my classmate was late so after changing a few buses finally around 11am only reached Che Dun...Quite far too to travel to Che Dun,i feel myself was very lucky as normally i will vomit very badly having to change buses so many times...(Maybe i was too excited until forget that i have carsick) Hehehe.....
Once we reached there,we look for the film location.We look for the so called Europe style villa house that Master Yue Ru lived.Then we ask a brother around there whether today will there be any shooting scene filming 'The late Nite Of Mdm Chin',big brother said 'Got',over there near the house'.I was super excited and laugh cheekly...Because we were very hungry and co-incidencelly there were a Noodle House' in front us so we went in and eat..
After finished eating,we walk towards the film location and saw some crew standing at an old house..I look at the house doesn't look like Master Yue Ru lived so i look further down and saw a nicer house and indeed there were a group of people standing at the door...My classmate smile and tell me that must be Yue Ru house so we quickly ran towards the house..
I ran towards the house door and saw a man standing at the door wearing a brown windbreaker,a warm scarf around the neck carrying a suitcase..I said that man look like Zai Zai ma?Because i heard some sisters said that they waited for many hours and managed to have a glimpse of Zai only so i couldn't believe it with my own eyes that i am so lucky to see Zai!I was so excited and hold GorGor(my classmate) arm and ask her is that Zai?My classmate was very calm(because she is not Zai Zai fans)and said 'Yes'..I didnt wear my glass so couldn't see Zai clearly but look a few times more confirmed is Zai moreover no man can be as shuai as Zai!Hahaha..i quickly take out my camera and passed it to my classmate asking her to take Zai foto while i have my eyes straight looking at Zai face..
Suddenly a man shouted as us saying that 'no camera or recording material allowed as i will confiscated it if i see any'..I was so depressed...Suddenly i heard a voice calling 'Master' then Zai walk into the house..Then we couldn't see anything and waited outside..We see production crew walking in and out around the locations...
We just stood outside the house and kept waiting..Suddenly i saw Zai assistant came out and pointed her finger at the book i was holding and said U want Zai Zai to sign ma? with her soft Taiwanese language..Her voice so sweet..I quickly passed over the book i'm holding to her and instructed her to ask Zai sign on the pink cover book.Other fans also took out some album and books and passed it to her.I even saw some fans taking out Che Dun bus ticket passing it to Zai assistant to be signed too..So me too took out the Che Dun tickets and passed it to her..She said 'OK! OK! OK!After Zai finished singing it will pass it back to u all...We slowly see Zai assistant walked behind towards the car.Me and my classmates felt very curious as isn't she should be walking into the house?Don't tell me Zai might be inside the car?We said 'cannot be la because we never seen ZZ walk out the house'...So we continue to wait near the car and kept waiting and waiting.....
At that moment,the car door opened!We looked behind and there were a very bright light shine out from the car .... Zai wearing a blue T-shirt,a young innocent face walking towards me! Very close!I was stunned!Zai was very shuai at this moment..Very very shuai...Feel like suddenly the whole screen were black and there were a bright like emerging out!Even my classmate was stunned for a few seconds..I asked GorGor "ZaiZai shuai ma?'She said 'Shuai'...I really want to go back and look back at his fotos..Then i ask my classmate "Do u think Zai look more shuai in person compare seeing him in TV?' Answer is "really feel not the same,wearing blue T-shirt really looks very good! The last time i saw Zai was on 6th of Sept,that time he appear wearing all white shuai ah!
First time in my life,i feel the power of shuainess ah!Sisters said that ZaiZai likes blue colour,look at his hand hugging a warm bag also blue colour...DoRaeMon aaahh!(siewleng:-ZZ so cute ne!Hugging a blue warm bag that have a Doraemon face on it..How ke-ai ohhh)Not so sure because there were lights shinning quite brightly so couldn't see it very clearly..So we decided to wait!Zai was seen walking towards the car and went inside the car..Slowly after that a girl was seen holding a purple colour school uniform and a brown windbreaker putting the clothes into the car.We assure that definately he will come out!Then the car door open and was seen Zai assistant coming out following with Zai from behind..At that time,i was thinking what should i tell Zai?Zai was seen wearing blue inside and a silk purple robes outside and walk passed me...I was so exited and asked 'ZaiZai,can i shake your hands?'Zai didn't hesitate and took out his hand which were inside the robes that he was wearing as because it was very cold standing outside plus with the strong wind..Really very cold...our hands and feet very cold like ice..When i shook ZaiZai hand,it felt so warm,Oooohhh!And also soft too!First time shook hand with Zai really felt very warm ooohhh!Zai face turn side way and did a cute mouth gesture which Zai loften love to do...Hahaha...shuai!But his face bowed down as if looking at the floor(this is Zai habit too),which i often see Zai do especially at airport or walking out from a place..always like to keep his head down looking at the floor..So i didnt saw his big eyes...
Zai again put up a white suit,white pants and white shoes!Too shuai!Then Zai go in and out again..This time he put up a brown windbreaker that i earlier saw him wore before when i met him the first time at the house door with a purple uniform inside...No matter how u look at Zai,he still look shuai!That afternoon Zai in total wore four sets of clothes! Whenever he appear,we will look at him feeling very high...
Around 4pm,were seen people leaving,people were seen going in and out the small house,ZaiZai was not seen around but his car is still there..Don't know whether will there be more shooting scenes or not?But still couldn't see Zai around...
Me and my classmates walk around back to the small house hoping to have a glance at Zai...But a few sisters were seen around there waiting...I find myself very lucky seeing Zai so many times as i heard some sisters waited six to seven hours just to see Zai!Although very little but compared to the sisters,i felt myself very lucky!
Today a friend told me that VIC sites admin left a message asking all fans to leave early as CEO are worried about our safely.I was moved by CEO careness towards us...Although i feel reluctant to leave but must leave too as we must be obedient and listen to our CEO advice.
I must say i was very happy and seeing in person really is very amazing!

4th Jan 2009 : “Fashion Kingdom" about to start filming. A suspense on who can become the male lead actor
(ZZ-related parts only)
....... Later on, there was information that Korean star 丹尼尔亨利 (Daniel Henney?), Taiwan idol Zhou Yu Min and domestic outstanding young actor William Li were also shortlisted, making the situation more complex.
Zhou Yu Min
As soon as he debuted, Zhou Yu Min was given the title of the male artiste with “the most feeling of intimacy/ closeness”. His handsome and elegant face won many female fans of all ages. During the F4 era, he obtained ultra-high popularity. He has also filmed many idol dramas. Zai Zai has a unique temperament (nature/ character/ personality) of being noble but not proud, and moreover is accompanied by a trace of melancholy. Recognized by people as Prince Charming, he is also among the most strong competitive candidates to play the male lead.

Vic Chou walks in a construction site wearing thongs, Fan Bing Bing suffers from the cold with running nose, Monday January 12, 2009 Taiwan
Translated by catalie @ asianfanatics.net
Vic Chou and Fan Bing Bing who act as first love sweethearts in television drama "Madam Chin", yesterday (January 11) filmed their first scene together at a construction site in Shanghai city. Sohu Entertainment was able to capture exclusive footage from the filming. As the boss, Fan Bing Bing's degree of professionalism never diminishes but only increases; due to the continuous temperature drop recently, she has been suffering from the cold, her nose would not stop running crazily but she was still persistent to start work, even arriving at the filming location an hour earlier than male lead Zai Zai. While getting to know each other, Zai Zai seemed not afraid of the below-zero tempersture, wearing thin sports clothes and plastic thongs. Before they began filming he even walked around the construction site that was filled with rubble.
Vic Chou looks prominently sloppy wearing thongs; lines are difficult so he brings script with him everywhere
Being popular as a result of "Meteor Garden" group F4, creating headlines in entertainment news by means of his relationship with "Shan Cai" Da S; since Zai Zai Vic Chou entered the entertainment industry, even though his music and movie/television productions haven't been few, he has caught the attention of the public through his private life instead. In order to rid himself of the "pretty face boy" title, he has recently been involved in television drama "Madam Chin" with Fan Bing Bing as producer, hoping to use this opportunity to make a transformation. However, the two of them only just filmed their first scene together yesterday. At approximately 11:30 am Zai Zai arrived at the scene in a black commercial car. In Taiwan his social standards are decreasing day by day, even his casual "outfit" gives off a hint of coldness. He only had one female assistant with him and he has been simply wearing cheap sports clothes. However, Zai Zai who has a thin and weak physical appearance actually has an immune system that must not be ignored. He did not flinch the slightest while walking in the cold wind wearing thin clothing. Even more unbelievable is that he was wearing a pair of green plastic thongs too. Despite having a black cotton socks underneath, against the -3°C temperature outside, it would still give anyone a chill. Zai Zai who is often photographed wearing thongs while shopping at the supermarket in Taiwan, also surprisingly wore this pair of thongs to filming and even making his way around a construction site filled with building materials before going indoors. Walking in thongs and causing dust to fly everywhere, this appeared very sloppy.
However, towards this "transforming production" Zai Zai can still be considered respectable and professional. From leaving the car to entering the filming location, he had the script in his hand the entire time. From his script it can be discovered that Zai Zai's lines are in large sections. On top of this, the contextual background of the drama is very unfamiliar to him, leaving him no choice but to work very hard, carrying the script with him everywhere. While eating, walking and sitting in the car, he is always reciting his lines.
Fan Bing Bing is too professional; suffering from the cold and a running nose, tissues never leave her hands
Wearing a long mauve down jacket with a woollen hat of the same colour and sunglasses, Fan Bing Bing arrived at the same location at 10:30 am, evidently having wrapped herself up very severely. Scart, hat and short boots, nothing was missing. As producer of this drama, Fan Bing Bing has been very conscienscious everyday since filming began half a month ago. Even when she was not involved in filming, she still went to the filming location as a "workplace overseer". Yesterday was her and Zai Zai's first scene together, so Fan Bing Bing had to be even more alert, arriving at the location to make preparations one hour earlier than her partner.
However, while walking from the construction site to the filming location, Fan Bing Bing did not let go of serviettes. Her agent Mu Xiao Guang was also looking after her the whole time. In actual fact, recently Shanghai's temperature has experienced a sudden drop, causing Fan Bing Bing to be a little unadapted to her surroundings. On top of that, everyday she has been working over 12 hours, her immune system decreasing. Finally not being able to bear the burden, she suffered from the cold weather, continuously sneezing with nose running. Despite this, "Boss Fan" has hardly neglected her work, her level of professionalism can be clearly seen. [/img]
Mark's interview in Prajnaworks. Talked about ZZ.
Translated by sytwo@Asianfanatics.net
A: "Ruffian Hero" filmed for a long 9 months. The feelings and tacit understanding between the actors should be good, right? Did this help you in your acting?
M: The crew spent most of the time in Kaohsiung, myself and Zaizai, Xiu, Jason (acting as younger twin brother) lived together. Myself and ZZ spend a lot of time together, whether in the drama (filming) or outside of the drama. Zaizai really took care of me, the junior, and shared many of his past acting experiences.
The is my first acting job and already playing one of the male lead, so of course will feel tensed and anxious. Plus my personality ......perfectionist, so many times I feel performance is not good, will feel depressed and anxious. Director Cai told me this at the beginning, "Acting experience will be generated over time, and these experiences will be internalized in the process. One day, you will become [Hero Wu]. "
Zai Zai and I have a lot of scenes togther and I have been constantly observing him. There was one occasion that left a very deep impression. That day, ZZ finished work and returned to the quarters, and he was very frustrated. That week, the entire crew constantly "turned classes". (Note : This is a professional term in filming, which means overnight shooting.) I can see that ZZ was really tired. As soon as he came back, he asked me if I saw his performance today. He was very dissatisfied with the performance of the day.
It was only then that I found out that he too has times where he encounters such bottlenecks.
So I began to learn how to treat myself a little better , loosen up at the right time, letting myself self-sustain and have balance.
ZZ at the filming scene will often have some outburst actions that he does at whim, creating a performance result that gives people a pleasant surprise. Later on, I also frequently join him, "hang together and singing together"/ 一搭一唱 (sytwo : not too sure of this part), creating the most natural performances.

No wonder all the recent B&W blogsite postings kept saying that we will be surprised by ZZ's performance as Ruffian (thanks to SilenceZ for posting this) :

TVBE - TLNOMC Press Con News (15 Jan 2009)

Translated by sytwo@Asianfanatics.net
VO : The Lunar New Year is coming and many of us are looking forward to the holidays, reunion with family and travelling for vacation. However, ZZ Zhou Yumin, FBB, Alex Foong, Wong Siu Kei, Paul Chin etc are in Shanghai rushing to film TLNOMC. This is the first time collaboration between ZZ and FBB so there will definitely be a quite a lot of chemistry created.
ZZ : On our first day, we filmed the most exciting/ dramatic scene, which is .....I wanted to say "chuan-see" (boat scene) (laugh)*..... "chuang see" (bed scene).
*sytwo : This is a joke about ZZ's prononciation which was during MG days - ZZ always pronounce the word "bed" (chuang) wrongly as "boat" (chuan).
Reporter : Did you feel awkward?
ZZ : I...I am still OK, because in every drama/ show it seems like I need to be like this with the girl.
FBB : You have it in every drama/ show. (all laugh)
ZZ : And I know that when we film till this part.....
FBB : It's OK, the opposite party purposely engage/ cast you for this scene.
(ZZ laughed hard and looks shy here, all laughed too)
ZZ : I don't know.....Sheng Yue Ru is supposed to shyly give away his "first time" To Jin Zhao Li. That was the original plan. But unexpectedly, Sheng Yue Ru became very experienced (all laughed and FBB hit ZZ's shoulders here shocked.gif ). I don't know why....I said "I can't pretend to act it out"......I just understand .... how to treat women... know what to do. Yeah.....so...we amended the script a little.
VO : According to many artistes, acting in an intimate scene together is the easiest way to become closer (or cultivate feelings). Looking at ZZ and FBB today, they seem very intimate/ close. Frequently speaking into the ears and talking secrets. ZZ even generously revealed that he was captured by FBB's elecric eyes. Does not seem worried about rumors at all. But when asked about his possible reconcilation with ex-girlfriend DaS, ZZ immediately became shy/ awkward. It's a good thing Paul Chin was there to help him out.
Reporter : Is she more beautiful than DaS?
ZZ: Aiyoh?! (sytwo : ZZ sounded so cute here!)
FBB : Aiyoh! (sytwo : LOL! ZZ's humor infected FBB too) I am going away. Do you dare to say it?
ZZ: (pretend to cough and clears throat) Didn't the both of you act in the same film recently? Laughed (refering to the new movie Future Cops starring Andy Lau, DaS and FBB)
(FBB hit ZZ on the shoulders, AGAIN - 2nd time she did this at the press con) shocked.gif shocked.gif
ZZ : Their face/ looks are different. Both are first class beauties.
FBB : This question is really hard for him to answer.
Reporter : There were rumors that you and DaS are going to reconcile soon. Is that so?
ZZ : I think she has answered this before.....
Paul Chin : Does the drama have this storyline?
ZZ : Huh? Does the drama have this.....ah, it does not have. We are talking about the drama today right? Oh, so that's it. (FBB and all laughing away)
Reporter : So what is the possibilty of reconcilation?
ZZ : Hmmm? Still talking about this? Ah... I do not know, I do not know....
Reporter : Do you want to reconcile with her?
ZZ : At this time, I am really .....I have said many times before to many friends ........
Paul Chin : Don't ask my son, ask his father-ah.
ZZ : Ask him, ask him
(ZZ was smiling, head down, hand touching his ear. ZZ obviously feels awkward at the question and quite relieved that Paul Chin stepped in to "rescue" Him)
Paul Chin : Whether or not he reconciles must ask me.
VO : Besides being an actor, FBB has open her own production company and become a boss. And she is the producer for this drama. Although the economy is not very good these days, FBB still invested a lot and gave high salary to the cast members. This drama cost up to 950,000 RMB per episode.
FBB : I felt that the casting this time is very good. Each actor is my first choice for the characters when I first read the script. And the best thing is that each friend's schedule was able to meet the drama's filming time and everyone was very helpful. And all of us have the fate to meet together in this drama.
VO : FBB is a very attentive boss and even prepared diamonds and phones for her employees as year end bonus. With such a good boss, it's no wonder Alex Foong reduced his pay for this drama.
Alex Foong : She is a very responsible boss. I am telling the truth because that day when she saw that one of my costume did not fit well, she ....
FBB : It's all the costumes. It's my mistake (both started laughing).
Alex Foong : She immediately said that the next morning I will buy clothes for you. She personally went to buy them for me so I feel bad on her behalf.

上海生活時尚 星尚 (Shanghai TV station 星尚) - TLNOMC press con
Credit to mizukakeron@youtube
Translated by sytwo@Asianfanatics.net
Starting from when lady host starts talking :
Lady host : If one were to guess which TV drama will be the most highly anticapted in 2009, some industry insiders said that drama by FBB's own production company, The Last Nite of Mdm Chin, is the most exciting TV drama this year.
VO : Yesteryday, TLNOMC which is now being filmed in Shanghai, held it's first media conference. This is FBB's 2nd time to become both "lau-ban" (boss) and lead actor in a drama produced by her own studio.
Actor Alex Foong who acts as XXX in the drama said that FBB is a good boss (sytwo : not sure of this)
FBB : The costumes designed by the stylist for Alex Foong somehow did not fit him well, each one was too small for him and he looked really uncomfortable in them while filming. So I said that during the day time when I am not filming, let me go and get some new suits for you. So I went together with his manager to buy a few new pieces for him. After that he was very happy and from then on treated me very well. Before that he treated me coldly (sytwo : she was joking). Actually I felt really bad because I am an actor too, and know that costumes play a part to help an actor get into character. So when I saw that all his costume were too small, although I did not go and say sorry for him, but my heart felt sad.
VO : All the actors said the same thing about FBB.
Another actor : You can feel that she is someone who is very attentive to actors. You feel that you should give your best performance for this boss.
VO : With a group of cast fully behind you, FBB appearance at the media conference has a unique charisma. (sytwo : not sure of this part).
FBB : Today's filming is at a very big party and there will dancing and ballroom costumes. This is set during the 1930s and 1940s where everything is very extravagant and elaborate, including the props, the costumes, red wine, utensils, restaurants and the rest. It's very different from the previous drama (Rouge Snow).
VO : This drama looks like it will be like the Big Shanghai appearance etc etc (sytwo : don't understand the rest)
Another actress (plays ZZ's older sister) : Because I am a girl from a rich family from that era, so my clothes are more classy and traditional.
Another actress : Because she is very poor and not like those from a rich family, and all her money came from him and these clothes are given by him (points to actor next to her).
Another actor : The director feel that my character is someone very cool. So my clothes are "powerful", always in black and with high boots.
Reporter : Was this designed specially by a stylist?
Actor : Yes.
Actress : It should be designed specially by a Shanghai master.
VO : FBB said that the most important thing in the drama is not on the investment on costumes or props but the key point is the actors/ casting. Zaizai Zhou Yumin acts as ......this time. (sytwo : can't understand some words).
ZZ : During our first scene together, when I am not filming, I will watch the monitor to observe Bing Bing's acting style. I feel very happy to see that her performance style is one of a very hardworking actor, which is something to be appreciated as many artistes who have acted for a long time tend to be less serious/ too relaxed.
VO : This drama is still being filmed in Shanghai. Experts predict that TLNOMC will become the drama which garners the most attention within the mandarin/ chinese TV entertainment industry.

I also found a VERY interesting news, about this Mainland singer called Li Yi-Feng who is recording a song based on the theme of "Hua Ze Lei" !!!
I could hardly believe it! Really incredible that 8 years after Meteor Garden, there has been 2 other adaptations, another rumored one from Mainland, and now even a song based on HZL! MG and Taiwan F4 really is the Godfather of Idol dramas and a Legend in Asia and rest of the Asian drama world !
Here's the article of Mainland singer Li Yi-Feng recording a song with the theme of Hua Ze Lei :
You can see Li Yi-Feng's picture here (quite a shuai guy) :
Some highlights of the article :
- Li Yi-Feng is preparing to launch his album during Spring and one of the song that he is recording currently is based on the theme of Hua Ze Lei. People born in the 80s have special feelings towards Meteor Garden and F4.
- Li Yi-Feng who is good-looking and have a slight melancholic temperemant was rumored to be a candidate for the role of HZL in the Mainland MG version. But Li said he does not have the good fortune to participate in the drama.
- FULL TRANSLATION of parts related to ZZ :
When asked who is the best candidate for Hua Ze Lei, Li Yi-Feng, said :" Zhou Yumin's version of Hua Ze Lei is a CLASSIC. The difference between him and the rest of F3 is that HZL is many female students' "COMPLEX" (direct translation : Emotional Knot/ 情结, therefore the successor who wants to challenge him will have the highest difficulty. "

From Laiou of vicpower.net
From this blog, (see ZZ's photos)
Besides posting photos of Zai riding a bike while he wasn't filming, the blogger, Xiao Ruan, wrote about some scenes shot during the day she worked as an extra.
In the afternoon:
1. Yue Ru got into an argument with Jin Zhao Liang (Jin Da Ban's brother).
This is the scene in the picture she posted in which Zai was not riding a bike.
By the way, Jin Da Ban's real name is Jin Zhao Li.
2. Jin Da Ban went to the Paramount Dancing Hall to work.
1. Waiting outside the Paramount Dancing Hall, Yue Ru tried to ask someone to take flowers to Jin Da Ban but wasn't able to.
2. One of the supporting actresses got drunk.
3. Yue Ru got into an argument with several guests and was bitterly beaten. Jin Da Ban came out and took care of the matter.
4. Yue Ru awkwardly gave the flowers to Jin Da Ban. Both laughed happily.
5. From that point on, all the filming was about Yue Ru and Jin Da Ban. They looked sweet together. They continued filming until 11:30 p.m.
FBB's English teacher was there, too. He or she speaks Chinese fluently and liked to take pictures of the extras.
She woke up at 5 a.m. and got home at 1:30 a.m., i.e. 20 hours later.
Her feelings are it's hard work, exhaustive, and tough to be an extra. It was cold and she was trembling since she played a dancing girl in qi pao.
Even though she left her number for contact at the end of the day, she writes she will not go back to work as an extra if the crew contacts her.
It's officially in the news now.
Zai is wrapping up his filming in the TV series.
He's leaving Shanghai.
See the related news thread as of 2009.01.23
And from the photos taken were ZZ is seen closing the car door (taken on 2009.01.21.)
The reporter wrote:
Zai's filming in Jin Da Ba is coming to an end.
The day before yesterday, Jan. 21, Zai arrived at the filming location, looking a bit tired. It was probably because he had been working hard constantly.
But he was still very considerate of his assistant. After getting off the car, he closed the car door himself, completely without the pompous manner of a big star.

Vic Zhou is swearing off relationship for now
Thursday February 19, 2009 Taiwan
Posted by LFtan@Asianfanatics
Vic Zhou, member of F4, who broke up with Barbie Hsu because they had "differing views and directions in love", claimed that he has lost confidence in maintaining a relationship.
In TV drama "The Last Night of Madam Chin", Zhou took the role as Fan Bingbing's young lover; a passionate man who tried to commit suicide for "Madam Chin", Fan's character. In his opinion, taking one's own life for love is a stupid move.
This is the first time Zhou and Fan are partnering on screen. "She is more like a mother and quite a nag; she'll bring me thermo bags, ginger tea, afraid that I'll catch a cold. I found out recently that my costumes were handpicked by her too," he shared.
In response to this, Fan said, "Everyone says I care too much for people around me."
Zhou also revealed that he has no wish to get into a relationship in reality for the time being. "Based on past experience, if I do not have confidence to bring her a lifetime of bliss, I should never fall in love with her," he said.

Video Clip on this news...
credit thanx to Stephenie@vicpower.net for the info and link.
Laiou of vicpower.net has posted a translation on this video..
English translation based on 晴天小猪's Chinese translation:
Flower boy No. 13
Taiwan's Vic Chou, born on June 9,1981 in Taiwan
This beautiful man, called the Yuan Bin of Taiwanese Wave, is the only member under 30 among Taiwan F4. (The host laughed)
The look of a prince living in a castle .
Has such superiority that he would keep his eyes open even when he fell into the water.
A vital capacity strong enough to match that of a merman prince. (host: I can't keep my eyes open.)
He played Rui in Taiwan's edition of "Flower boys" with as great charisma as our own Rui.
He will turn 30.
May have aged with a wrinkle or two.
He is now good-looking and matured.

Media Interview of ZZ (14 Mar 09)

Translated by sytwo@Asianfanatics
Reporter/ photographer seem to be giving some instructions to ZZ how to pose.
ZZ : Like this?
Reporter : No, don't turn that way. Pants too short (sytwo : not sure of this).
Reporter : ZZ, look this way. ZZ look up.
ZZ, Ivy, Mark watching B&W video and laughing.
ZZ : Initially, I thought that being an action drama, it's normal to get injured in the action sequences. But unexpectedly, even during love scenes, injury occured, due to over-aggressive actions. This is something I can't imagine. (sytwo : not sure of this part as sound was unclear). (Ivy was laughing at this part)
Reporter seem to have asked a question
ZZ : It was during the artificial resuscitation scene that I got injured. That was what I was refering to when I said even love scenes can cause injury.
(sytwo : ZZ did more explanation about that scene than what I translated above, but really could not hear what he said)
Reporter : What was your reaction when you were called "Zai-Yeh" at the filmset?
("Zai-Yeh" literally means "Grandfather Zai" which is an honorific normally used for a very senior person/ respected veteran).
ZZ : The first time I heard it was from a cameraman (or crew member) whom I have known for a long time. He said "Zai-yeh, we are going to start filming." When I heard it, I was thinking "What's that?" Because I don't like something that's XXX (sytwo : can't catch this), I don't like something that is XXX (sytwo : can't catch this), something that is not logical. So I directly went and asked him "What's happening? Why did you suddenly say that?" He said "No lah, it was a feeling we got and so everyone started calling you that." But a senior (older person) calling a junior (younger person) that way, isn't it too much? I was really unused to everyone calling me that.....but, once I got used to it, I was getting rather used to being called that....(everyone laughed loud at what ZZ said at the end).
