Idol dramas' main attractions are generally good looking guys or girls and a cliche love story...

there are many dramas that are borderline, but some are pretty obvious (ie. most Taiwanese and Korean modern dramas)

i c, thanx.
but it seems that stories from manga r mostly ugly duckling met a super hot prince charming, the prince will at the end choose her instead of his originally hot girlfriend.... which is kinda far from reality..i.e: my name is kim san soon and hana kimi..don't u think?..
maybe it's for a moral booster or somethin.

I still dont know so much about Cpop and Cbusiness, cause i was all time a big fan of korea, korean culture and people, but then i got some chinese or taiwanese dramas and i started loving china.so all things what did u say r important to me and to my (exiguous XD) knowledge

Yep, me too. I began with chinese/taiwanese dramas, became obsessed about Korea for most of last year. And then this year, I discovered all these new mainland singer/actors. I was drawn to their lack of packaging, and many of their talents.

I guess, to me, Taiwanese artists (excluding the composers like Jay Chou, David Tao, Nicky Lee and Wang Leehom) are often too focused on looks, with little talent. (ie. Fahrenheit) On the other hand, many Korean artists are overly packaged, and after a while, they all sort of blur in my mind.

But the mainland industry is fairly new. It wasn't until late 2005, when Super Girls became popular, that mainland China finally had the seedlings of a real entertainment business. And then, all of a sudden, all of the talented mainlanders found an outlet for their talents and looks. Last year, with the success of Super Boys and My Hero, a lot of good looking guys also came out. XD Yet the people that did came out weren't packaged, but they were nevertheless (generally) talented.

Plus,a lot of the Super Girls have amazing voices. (Jade Liu, Jane Zhang, Bibi Chow, He Jie, Sitar Tan)

But the mainland industry is still growing. It has the talent, but not yet a well-developed entertainment circle (as opposed to the welloiled machine of Korea). For example, they have great voices, but often lack great composers. They have so much potential, but must go to the US to train in vocals. (ie. Jane Zhang had an American teacher, and Bibi studied in Hollywood).


oh wow. really well said. I agree with the under-packaged thing it's so sad though. but I must say, Mainland did have a real entertainment industry just not an idol type one unfortunately

Bibi studied in Hollywood? Really? I love her voice =] it's so deep but she can always reach those really high notes apparently I look like her a little xDD

For three months, I think. I love her voice, too. It can be clear when she wants to, but she does everything with her own style. She has so much potential. I can't wait until she comes back!

BOBO on Elle:



source: http://cfensi.wordpress.com/2009/02/21/bobos-perfect-duet/

Elle China’s special “double” edition included an article on the two perfect duos of Huayi- Yu Quan and BOBO. Forgive me for not putting up Yu Quan’s interview, who’s far ahead of BOBO in terms of singing and composing, but they have no fangirls to scan their stories. Expect more BOBO friendship cuteness in the Baidu awards post coming soon.


Elle : Earlier, you guys both said you liked sweet cute girls. Would you ever fight over the same girl?
Jing (steals mic): Jiejie*older sis*, let me tell you, that will never happen! Once, we were singing Male KTV, and Baozi *little meat bun aka Fu Xinbo* saw that the MTV was about two xiongdi*brothers aka bff’s* fighting over a girl, and was he mad! He was angry about it the whole night. It cracked me up….if he can’t even accept a MV like that but was very serious and very mad about it, how could that ever happen in real life?

Elle: Why did you guys form a group? Was it because groups were “in”?
BOBO: Since the competition, we had a very strong friendship, and our company liked us, so we wanted to be a group. At the time, we didn’t understand that the entertainment circle lacked groups; we only knew that we were used to each other being there after so long. Sometimes when singing, we would look at each other; when one person’s not there, the other person would still look to their side and wait for someone else to finish the line out of habit.

Elle: Aren’t you ever bored with always singing with one person? Have you ever imagined you were singing alone or pretended the other person was a sexy girl?
Jing: If I stood on the stage alone, I would still automatically turn to the side. I don’t want a hot girl. I don’t want a boy&girl group.
Fu: I can’t imagine the two of us not singing together. I’m too used to it. Beautiful girl? Maybe, but who? (Jing: Jolin Tsai!)

Elle: So what does 1+1 mean to you?
Fu: 1+1 is obviously larger than 2. We are good by ourselves, but we’re even better together. And in such a complicated environment, we can support and care for each other.
Jing: Right, compared to the competition times, there’s less naive and innocent joys and more work. Although some tasks are not happy, but we have became closer; we have became each other’s confidant and motivation.
