Many Tan fans waited in the storm, some even followed Yen Chi Tan and his wife Cissy Wang from the hotel to the premiere. Although the guests were caught in an awkward situation, everyone's enthusiasm moved them. In particular Yen Chi Tan did not turn any photo, autograph or interview request down. He even went cheek to cheek with a little fan for a photo. Although the rain was heavy, everyone also thought that "water was money, so rain was a good thing". A fan in a wheelchair made the trip and Chi Tan was deeply touched. He even went over to shake her hand and pose for photos.

Carina Lau has no problem returning to TVB if she gets to work with senior actress, Liza Wang.


According to Mingpao News, the award-winning actress recently appeared for a recording of TVB's programme "Queen Feast" with Liza, and revealed that the "Wars of In-laws" actress has been a great influence on her.


"Liza is a representative of the TV industry, and I am always eager to cooperate with her," she said.


Carina also added that she has no problem participating in a TVB drama, as long as she gets to work with the 67-year-old diva.


When asked about Nicholas and Faye's rekindled romance that has been making headlines in the media, Carina, one of Faye Wong's best friends in the industry, stated that she has yet to meet up with the singer due to her hectic schedule.


"She must be very 'intoxicated' right now, so I don't want to disturb her," she joked.

 Hong Kong singer Denise Ho is not affected at all after hearing that there is a danger of her being blacklisted from mainland China due to her support for the Occupy Central Movement.


As reported on Hk Top Ten, the singer, who even joined in the protest in Admiralty several times before, said that she considered the threat dull.


"We are standing up for Hong Kong's conscience, not just for the students. I can't just stand by and watch from afar," she said.


Denise stressed that there are many more things to do rather than making money, and she is not interested to dwell on threats of boycotts.


"I won't be scared just because people are threatening my source of income. As long as it feels right to me, it doesn't matter. I won't mind that much," said the singer.

While he has gained a lot of support from mainlanders for his recent post of the Occupy Central protests, Jackie Chan has also been slammed by many who believe that the action star is the last person who has any credibility to talk.


As reported on Independent News, previously the "CZ12" star, whose social networking account, Weibo, has been inactive for quite a while, recently posted a message to express his thoughts about the protest.


He wrote, "I found out through the news that Hong Kong's economic loss has reached HKD 350 billion (approximately USD 45 billion) and I am really worried. I believe every Hong Kong resident loves Hong Kong and wishes it well."


"Hong Kong's bright future requires everybody's support and hard work. Just like in the song "Nation", it goes, 'There is no prosperous home without a strong country'. I am willing to work hard with everyone and return to rationality, to face the future, love our country, love our Hong Kong."


However, Jackie's statement rubbed Netizens the wrong way. One Netizen urged Jackie to stop talking about politics and disciplined his own son first, referring to Jaycee Chan's recent drug arrest for using and possessing marijuana, while others reminded that Jackie was not a stranger to protests as well, using examples of his 1999 Anti-Piracy Alliance protest and 1996's protest against Triad violence.

FT Island’s Lee Hong Gi brought up about using ExSo as the group’s name in the drama.

During press conference for SBS’s new drama Modern Farmer, Lee Hong Gi apologized about the fake group name used in the drama.

Lee Hong Gi will be acting as a member of the fake band called ‘Excellent Souls’ along with Lee Si Eon, Park Min Woo and Gwak Dong Yeon. As ‘Excellent Souls’ is being called ‘ExSo’ in short, Lee Hong Gi apologized to the EXO fans.

Lee Hong Gi said, “When we first heard our team name of ‘ExSo,’ we thought, ‘We’re in trouble. We might not even be able to broadcast.’ Our bulletin board was terrorized. There were all kinds of curses on our articles. Si Eon hyung told me he has never experienced anything like this. Si Eon hyung is quite upset,” causing a round of laughter.

He explained, “As an idol, I would feel happy if someone called themself FT Island on broadcast. I guess this is because it’s been a while since we debuted but I think their fans were more sensitive. I apologize. The names hold different meanings so I hope that you won’t misunderstand.”

Lee Hong Gi then revealed, “Even in the drama, I get slapped on the face and get knee-kicked by a high school girl because of the name ‘ExSo.’”

Meanwhile, Modern Farmer is a human comedy drama about four rock band members who become farmers. It is set to air on October 18.
