Taiwanese singer Valen Hsu, who registered her marriage with Korean boyfriend Choi Jae Sung (nicknamed 'Mr. Big') last November, finally held her wedding banquet in Korea last Friday.
The venue was at Aston House, the location of popular Korean drama Hotelier and also a hot favourite for couples to hold weddings.
Although it poured halfway through the wedding rehearsal and the ceremony got delayed, it was still a heartwarming occasion. Valen was led down the aisle by her father and they exchanged vows in front of family members and close friends.
The couple dedicated songs to each other with the accompaniment of live musicians ' Mr. Big sang 'She' and Valen crooned a Korean song 'I Am In Love'.
40-year-old Mr. Big, a senior manager at S.M. Entertainment, was shy when it came to singing but found courage when the guests gave him a round of applause. The happy bride revealed she had secretly practiced the song two months ago to surprise her husband.
After a tear-jerking speech by Valen's father, her celebrity friends Charlie Young, Angelica Lee, Tanya Chua, Angela Chang, Waa Wei and Fish Leong sang a Chinese classic 'The Moon Represents My Heart' for the newly-weds.

Following his faced pull-outs from as many as 19 endorsers. He is reportedly requested to compensate them NT$50 million (approximately S$2.1 million) in damages.
The 19 companies are split into three groups ' those who had to remove his advertisements and are seeking for compensation, others who are still monitoring the situation, and those like Adidas and KFC whose contracts with Kai have already or are about to expire and thus do not need compensation.
There are news that NIVEA Men and chewing gum company Stride have demanded compensation as well. It is estimated that he has to pay up to twice the amount sought after currently, if another third of the endorsers were to demand compensation.
The manager of the 23-year-old, Angie Chai, said in response, 'The company and Kai will bear the costs. We will go through the hard times together. His mood is still pretty bad so we have not discussed (whether he will bear the entire bill).'
As to previous rumours of the Chinese media industry banning Kai, it will not happen as movies A Choo and Tiny Times 4 will be released as planned. Authorities commended his bravery in admitting his mistake and called him a 'good role model'.

Vivian Chow Wai Man yesterday along with the film CAFE. WAITING. LOVE. leads Bruce, Vivian Sung Yu-Hua and Marcus Chang attended an audience appreciation event and surprised viewers. They announced that the film after 4 weeks in release in Hong Kong has already reached 20 million. Its Taiwan box office even reached NT$ 50 million. When they appeared they were welcomed with enthusiastic applause. Bruce even reprised a hot dog magic trick from the film. Vivian said that she felt very happy to have such an ideal box office performance. Because her role was very minor, it was like a magical journey. Only each time when she went to different places to promote she did not have time to stay and dine with other actors. Thus this time she already agreed to have dinner with them.
Did her acting bug act up from the production? She said, "This isn't my regular job, I will leave it up to fate in the future. This performance was run into but could not be asked for." She continued to say that her husband Joe Ngai Chun has watched it twice, but he did not give her any special review. He only said that the entire film was a pleasant surprise. Would her husband cheer her up with magic normally? She joked, "He is always playing pranks on me, but since this is personal I won't talk about it. He may look like scholarly but he actually is very mischievous. I look very nice but I am mischievous as well, haha." ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Teddy Chan Tak Sum directed martial art 3D film KUNG FU JUNGLE (YUT GOR YUN DIK MO LUM) starred Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Charlie Yeung Choi Nei, Wang Baoqiang and Bai Bing. After the classic IP MAN scene was 1 against 10, Chi Tan this time in the film fought 1 against 17. In the story a series of mysterious murders took place in Hong Kong. Chief Inspector of Police Lok Won Sum is out of ideas. Prisoner Ha Hau Mo volunteers to assist the police in capturing the culprit.
Charlie said that when the film started, Chi Tan by chance saw the news on television in prison and learned about the recent series of murders. He immediately demanded to see her but was denied. He then started with a prisoner he never got along with and ended up in a 1 against 17 fight. For this fight, Chi Tan performed personally and even directed the action. He said that before the shoot he already discussed the action designs with director Chan Tak Sum. In the end they decided that he would direct three to four action scenes in the entire film. The other fight scenes would be left to the Stuntmen Association's Stephen Tung Wai, Yuen Bun and Yim Wa.
Chi Tan said, "I took a very actual fight approach, very demanding on martial art theories. When you do this, I do that, whether it is reasonable, can it be blocked, can it be ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Stephen Chow Sing Chi has been tangled in trouble lately but has not made a statement, as he is still busy with his upcoming film MERMAID (MEI YUN YU). Only 4 of the 13 selected "mermaids" will remain after the elimination round next week, thus they fought and plotted to stand out and perform. Seeing how far the Mainland candidates have gone, Barbie Liu (Ha Wai Yu) and Linah Matsuoka did not dare to hesitate; Ha Wai Yu performed a seductive musical routine to stand out, while Matsuoka not only showed off her figur but also studied her Putonghua hard in hopes of getting more points and into the final 4.
Chow Sing Chi actually has secretly been meeting the 13 candidates, but since they signed a confidentiality agreement they could not reveal the process of meeting Sing Yeh. The film's screen writer Chris Chan Jan Yue posted photos of the "mermaids" meeting Sing Yeh and Wilson Chin Kwok Wai on Weibo. "No matter the strong the storm is, we would only work hard on the next film -- meeting the 13 competition candidates!" Seemingly the rumors have not affected Sing Yeh.
Sing Yeh is expected to instruct only the final 4 "mermaids" on acting. Although the winner might not be the lead, the 13 candidates ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
