8th November’s [Happy Camp]: will Ariel Lin become “Mrs. Joe Cheng”?


Last month when Lin Yi Chen was here to record the show [Happy Camp], she was being grilled by the host to pick out the guys that she likes the most out of Zheng Yuan Chang, HuGe, Wuzun etc who she has worked with before. Lin Yi Chen bluntly said loves [Zhi Shu] Zheng Yuan Chang the most. Unexpectedly [History seems to repeats itself], when Zheng Yuan Chang was the guest for [Happy Camp] in the episode that will air on 8th (Saturday 7:35pm), he has also suffered the same [obstacle] from the host, when [Happy Family] asked will Lin Yi Chen and him continue to have rumors because of their third collaboration, with this, Zheng Yuan Chang can’t help but smiles and said: [Maybe while filming the fifth series we will have got married already.] Zheng Yuan Chang also smiles and said: [Lin Yi Chen is the most important woman in my life in the entertainment industry.]

Because of idol series like [It Started With A Kiss] and [They Kiss Again], Zheng Yuan Chang was being called as [Young and Handsome] and the undeniable [heartthrob for the young girls] in the Taiwan District. Taking the seat as [Mrs Cheng] is actually the dream of a lot of fans. About his own ideal girlfriend that he is looking for, Zheng Yuan Chang bluntly said she has to be [The One] and he still stand firm on the basic qualities that he likes: [Must have a filial heart, understanding, will be very optimistic while facing difficulties, this type of girls will be very attractive.]

A lot of people who are attracted to Zheng Yuan Chang are because of his eyes that seem to know how to talk. During the show, Hai Tao was unconvinced, he reveals that Zheng Yuan Chang’s handsomeness has been through adjustment, and he has photos as proof (Zheng Yuan Chang has single eye line when he was small; while now he has double eye line). Zheng Yuan Chang explains that as an artist, in order to make his eyes looked livelier, every time before attending an event, he will put on the double eye line sticker himself. And because his eyelashes are inverted so he also will use the eye lash curler everyday. Zheng Yuan Chang was using his skillful hands to help Hao Tao to have the mysterious double eye line, the host teases Du Hao Tao that he is finally able to get the help that he needed, making the crowd burst out laughing.

During the show, Zheng Yuan Chang was being asked about there was a time where he would often used [Racing with the police] as a way to train his body, Zheng Yuan Chang revealed that after he graduated from high school at the age of 18, he gets into a train alone, and travel to Taipei, he roamed around the big city all by himself, he has worked as a bartender in a bar, a waiter in a restaurant, a salesman in a men apparel shop and even having a stall where he sells his goods on the ground. That time when someone shouted [Police are coming], he will be very well-trained and started to grab the 4 corner of his mat together and run until he was out of sight. Luckily he has a pair of long legs, and has never been arrested by the police…… In real life, Zheng Yuan Chang’s monthly expenses is less than NT$10,000, he is that [Thrifty]. When friends asked him to borrow money, he will refuse to do so.

During the Posing class, when Zheng Yuan Chang teaches He Ling how to pose like a young and handsome man, they have created numerous funny moments and the funniest part will be the special countrified runway show. For more exciting scenes please remember to watch [Happy Camp] on 8th November at 7:35pm.

Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng are like knowing each other since their previous life

Working with Zheng Yuan Chang (first right) for the third time, Lin Yi Chen (second right) said the closeness from their latest collaboration makes her feels like they have known each other since their previous life.

Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng are like knowing each other since their previous life
Last night [Love or Bread] just aired its episode 3 but during yesterday afternoon signing session in South Park , Tainan , when the fans were being asked to guess Lin’s Chen’s character [Zhen Shan Mei] clasped her hands together, is her right thumb on the top or left thumb on the top? In the end all the fans were able to guess it right, of course it is her right thumb on the top, emotions first! For those who have watch [Love or Bread] will be able to understand the characters’ personality, even by using your [knees] to think, will also be able to guess that the kind-hearted Zhen Shan Mei will have the right thumb at the top. Zheng Yuan Chang and Lin Yi Chen’s question is too easy, actually they are not trying to test out the IQ of the fans, they just want to get some feedback and luckily everyone shares some good tacit understanding together so yesterday signing session was a blast.

The fans from the Tainan are very passionate, the event starts at 3pm but a lot of people have already arrived and form a line at the south park without taking their lunch. It's because they want to get a better seats and in order to guard their seats, they have take turns in going to the nearby shops or stalls to get all kinds of snacks to fill up their stomach.

Finally Lin Yi Chen, Zheng Yuan Chang, Bryant Chang, Zhang Jia Hui and Wang Wen Xing arrived at the event. The event started right on time and in order not to be late for the next event, they can only allow 300 fans, who have bought the series merchandise, to be eligible for the signing and hand shake.

For those fans who get to go up on the stage will get to shake hands and take pictures with the cast, having zero distance then they could used the microphone to confess their love to that characters in the series, everyone was having a lot of fun.

When asked what they feel about their 3rd collaboration? The closeness with Zheng Yuan Chang is like (we've) known each other since their previous life. This will be Lin Yi Chen's first time playing as a working adult, yesterday she has also shown some concern about the current unemployment rate, she said, Zhen Shan Mei is also a person who have several jobs so she hopes everyone will working hard together with Zhen Shan Mei!

Edward Lam’s column: Stage play’s newcomer Joe Cheng bringing “Li Xiang” to life
A breath of fresh air
In [Design for Living] Zheng Yuan Chang plays as the character Li Xiang, this character’s name comes just right off from my mouth. The other day while we were talking about what “he” will be like as a person, I said to my colleagues, stage play is different from TV series, in stage play you have to develop a character within 2 to 3 hours. The viewers are very surreal, they are just like the people that you faced in the real world; majority of them won’t be remembering other people’s names ---- just a person who happens to passed by. While TV series, its aim is to become part of the ‘family’ (TV is a machine), who is who, you have to remember the name by heart, so that’s why the creators can take on any name, saying them softly and won’t have any doubts about creating a new name. There’s another problem in stage play too, even if the viewers could remember one name, then what about the other names? Once I have a very crazy idea and that would be putting one ‘desire symbol’ into each name, to represent their personality and temperament.

Li Xiang’s pronunciation is implying to ambition. ‘His’ biggest ambition is to earn money, ‘earning as many as he can’ ------ When he came for the job interview, he talks confidently about his future to his future supervisor. Not only this, he even talks about his past, about how he holds a net auction (Auctioning in the internet), how he was able to earn $10 thousand and how he loses $60 thousand later. He was very arrogant and uttered: [Earning ladies’ money are the easiest……] He remembers it by heart after seeing his future supervisor (Sylvia Chang)’s branded snake skins bag and later he describes her as a ‘magnificent snake’.

Zheng Yuan Chang has put a lot of effort by making this laid-back and yet so pure and innocent that people find it hard to hurt him character into such a cute and likable person; the laughter that he brought to the viewers were like the winds of springs. From the stage play point of view, Li Xiang is very a very likable person and yet sad to say that he has a sad fate in the end. I am not going to reveal why the viewers will shed their tears for him but I will say that if Zheng Yuan Chang was unable to fully grasp hold of this character Li Xiang, then the ending for [Design for Living] will not be able to accomplish.

To me, Xiao Zhong happens to be the reason why the director will think of such a name for the character, it has to be “right to the point”. Zheng Yuan Chang is a newbie in stage play and in the play he is someone who is a ‘newbie’ in the working class and then plus the meaning behind the name (not one of those weird name), the character has immediately becomes more surreal. The viewers don’t have to memorize his surname or his last name, just need to accept the temperament of his [position] ---- Who doesn’t want to meet up with their own innocent self again in this common world?

Of course if this ‘newbie’ character has changed to someone like Zheng Xiu Jiao or Zhang Yuan (did discuss about it but due to all kinds of reasons, they were unable to make it); but then the entire play will be totally different from the current one and they will not be having the surname as Li and last name as Xiang.

After Zheng Yuan Chang finished filming the TV series [Love or Bread], for the past 6 months he has been busy with the performances of his stage play; at the moment he doesn’t have any intention in taking part in any of the idol series. It turns out that in the 2nd half of the year he will be invading the music industry, carrying out his plan to become a fully versatile artist. Since the beginning of 2009 Zheng Yuan Chang has already set it as [Year of Surpassing Zheng Yuan Chang], other than giving it as a breathing space to his acting skills, in a way it will also allow him to redefine himself.

Zheng Yuan Chang (Xiao Zong) is not filming any TV series for more that half a year now, he is only concentrating on stage play performances, he says: [I want to give a breathing space to my acting skills! Last time I will have 2 to 3 TV series in one year, fully using the time of the entire year; even though there are a lot of people who are saying that I’ve done a very good job, I still didn’t see how I would be able to make any progress, so I’ve decided to absorb. This time I am very fortunate to be able to work with Zhang Jie (Slyvia Chang) and other talented cast in the stage play, I have been able to learn a lot of acting skills from them. Other than using your facial expression you could also expressed yourself by the movement of your body, to me this is another indication in acting, I’ve gain a lot from this experience.]
