The Taiwanese supermodel danced to Gangnam Style, hugged the host and even injured herself during program recording
Taiwanese actress-model Lin Chi-ling recently went on a Chinese variety show Day Day UP, to promote her new movie 101st marriage proposal which is set to premiere in China next Valentine's day.
Artistes who also attended the program recording include local celebrity couple Fann Wong and Christopher Lee, and Ada Choi and husband Max Zhang. As the only guest on the program who is single, Chi-ling was paired with the show's host Eddy Ou (Ou Di).
The 38-year-old was said to be extremely cooperative, following the rundown completely, and was not afraid to let go of her demure image. She danced to Gangnam Style, which was not in the original script, and even gave Eddy a big hug.
Eddy, who said that he felt like Andy Lau because only the heavenly kings get these 'śtreats', joked, 'I didn't expect to receive such an honour.'Ł
While hitting Eddy on the chest repeatedly for effect, Chi-ling screamed in pain when she injured herself with the studs on his blazer. Although the cut caused the model's hand to bleed on the spot, it was fortunately a minor injury.
He reprimanded jokingly after learning about the incident, 'I've caught the culprit [stud]!'Ł
When he was asked on his experience working with the supermodel, who is one foot taller than him, he shared that there was no pressure and that both of them are professionals.

The trio shared their latest 'dormitory'Ł photo and exposed each other's sleeping habits
Taiwanese girl group S.H.E (Selina Jen, Hebe Tian and Ella Chen) moved in together to a four-room apartment last month to prepare for the launch of their latest music album, The Flowers Are Blossoming Again.
Selina recalled the days when the trio lived together for the first time in a studio apartment 11 years ago and divulged that she had to share a bed with Ella while Hebe had the priority to sleep on her own.
She laughed and mentioned, "As Hebe will turn around when she sleeps, she was afraid that we would get squashed!"
"I have their best interests at heart. I was afraid that I would hurt them while I was asleep," Hebe retorted.
Ella disclosed that Hebe still has a "terrible sleeping posture" and she is "always very lazy to get out of bed every morning".
Ella also regarded herself as "S.H.E's nanny", as she is always nagging the girls to have a proper sleep timetable and is also in charge of tidying up the apartment.
S.H.E's "dormitory days" are coming to an end soon and they have started packing up after concluding album promotions. They have also uploaded their latest group photo online to celebrate living together for the second time.
The girls are extremely delighted to return home and sleep on their beds and Selina and Ella, who are married, expressed jokingly, "We can finally cuddle our husbands again!"

Kai, who is currently filming his upcoming movie Xiao Shi Dai in Shanghai, was spotted boarding a flight to Taiwan on Sunday.
Coincidentally, Elva who was supposed to be in Yi Chang (a city in China's capital, Wuhan) for a work assignment, appeared at the Shanghai airport and returned to Taiwan on the same flight which sparked dating speculations between the duo again.
As Kai had to attend a movie promotional event in Singapore on Monday, it was believed that he chose to spend two hours "dating" Elva on the plane rather than to travel directly to Singapore from Shanghai.
An insider also revealed that the 33-year-old songbird had intentionally arranged to return to Taiwan together with her rumoured boyfriend. The pair left individually as soon as the plane landed in Taiwan.
Elva's manager, Jiang Cheng Jin, denied the rumours and explained, "We only found out that Kai was also on the same flight when we met Amber Guo's (Kai's co-star in Xiao Shi Dai) manager."
Cheng Jin further clarified that Kai and Elva were seated respectively on the first and last row of the business class, and both of them "just greeted each other".

These deals are reportedly worth S$6.38 million in total, making him the 'highest earning'Ł baby this year.
Under the precious care of the whole family, little Nadim's weight has crossed a healthy 5 kg mark and he will remain cloaked in anonymity for the time being, according to Stefanie's spokesperson. 'Actually the baby's name has already been decided, but Stefanie does not wish to announce it yet and she hopes to be given a little more space.'Ł
That aside, having turned a month old recently, Stefanie's bundle of joy has received blessings from local and overseas friends alike. As part of the baby's full-month celebration, the first-time mummy distributed cakes to friends in Singapore and Taiwan; the 34-year-old got her Taiwanese manager to order 20 boxes of cakes to be distributed to her friends there.
Ever since Stefanie gave birth on October 30, the only news fans had of the local songbird was a heartwarming picture of her and her baby's hands, inviting many requests for her to share more images.
However, as Stefanie is said to have caught a flu and fever due to exhaustion, she is unable to grant her fans' wishes. Her family has hired a confinement helper to assist in looking after both mother and baby.
After announcing his break-up with model Sami in July this year, Taiwanese television host Eddy Ou (commonly known as Ou Di) was recently seen sharing close interaction with artiste Patty Wu during the recording of his program Experts' Mobilization.
The two were rumoured to be linking arms and when Patty was asked if she would let go of Eddy's hand, she proclaimed, 'No!'Ł
However the rumour was reportedly stirred by the two artistes themselves in order to boost the show's ratings. Sources revealed that Eddy's real beau is actually a model nicknamed 'little Jasmine'Ł who is 11 years his junior, andthe said model is frequently seen on variety shows as a show girl.á
Fellow Taiwanese host Nono once pressed 'little Jasmine'Ł on her relationship with Eddy during one of his shows, to which she replied with a mere 'thank you'Ł. Similarly, Eddy refuted the speculations and teased, 'I'm single and meeting girls for dinner. You can come and take pictures if you want.'
Since Taiwanese host and writer Kevin Tsai openly acknowledged his sexual orientation on a television program in 2002, he has been in a loving relationship with his partner George for 10 years now. He expressed no regrets about being honest and is glad to see the society's growing tolerance and acceptance of gay public figures.
With the coming out of Hong Kong singers Denise Ho and Anthony Wong Yiu-Ming recently, the 50-year-old shared tips on maintaining a long-run relationship. While there is inevitable pressure being a gay couple, Kevin and George choose to keep their composure in face of problems and try to resolve issues calmly.
The pair's amiable relationship has always been the envy of many Taiwanese artistes. In response, Kevin advised that the key is to learn, show concern for one's partner, and luck. He cited gifts and couple holidays as examples to warm the relationship.
Though they tend to go on ÔÇścold war' rather than having verbal arguments, such instances are rare and when they did happen, they would straighten things out. George would bring Kevin's favourite food to appease him, and added that the best ÔÇśweapon' to end a fight is by telling the other party ÔÇťyou win".
Though they are on good terms, they are not thinking of engaging a surrogate mother. According to Kevin, the world is too complicated and the couple is not confident of raising a kid well.

Zhang Ziyi appears as a guest
The film THE LAST SUPPER held its premiere in Beijing. "Xiang Yu" Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho), "Liu Bang" Liu Ye, and "Han Xin" Chang Chen attended. They accepted the challenge and answered Chu-Han Contention idiom and knowledge questions. Liu Ye repeatedly answered incorrectly. He shamefully joked that he lost all his face. During the 8 month long production, the three kings were with each other day and night. They were like brothers but were made fun of a "heavy in gay flavor". Liu Ye even revealed, "Chang Chen cooked for Ng Yin Cho everyday!" Chang Chen struck back and and pointed out that Liu Ye was tight with director Lu Chuan and were very ambiguous!
Although LAST was a male drive film, when actress He Dujuan performed "Farewell My Concubine", her emotional dialogue almost made Ng Yin Cho cry. Another actress Qin Lan had more scenes with Liu Ye. She played Empress Lu from young to old and was just as much a bright spot. A surprise segment of "director interrogation" took place. Chang Chen accused Lu Chuan of being a masochist who "does not use doubles even for dangerous stunts". Liu Ye said that he "has no upper limit during the shoot". Actually everyone is secretly complimenting the director for his serious production.
