<Black & White> leaves the ending open; Mark Zhao priced at a hundred-thousand (NT) for outside performances
Source : Chinayes news
translated by fewfew @ http://asianfanatics.net

PTS and TVBS' entertainment channel will be airing the finale of <Black & White> on June 27th, but the climax of the drama is still not over yet. Director Cai Yue Xun plans to start filming the movie version in fall to continue the story. Since the drama is well received, the overseas rights costs almost a hundred-thousand (NT) per episode. Leading actor, Mark Zhao's cost for outside performances have also increased to more than a hundred-thousand. Although he is a newcomer, his price is already higher than many respectable "B" rated celebs in showbiz.

A budget of eighty million (NT) and a movie in planning, <Black & White>, with Vic Zhou leading the drama, there has been many good praises after its broadcast in Taiwan. In recent episodes, the past and background for the Vic Zhou's Pi Zi – Chen Zai Tian and Mark Zhao's Ying Xiong – Wu Ying Xiong are slowly being revealed and the ratings continue to rise. Its ratings for last week were 3.15%, breaking PTS' ten-year record for highest recorded rating in the network. Thus, the overseas rights' starting price is now at thirty hundred (US) (around a hundred thousand in NT).

Although <Black & White>'s per episode pricing is high, it is because there is the super popular idol Vic Zhou leading, many locations were used for filming, and the selling of the drama is doing not bad in China, Singapore and Malaysia. What is interesting is that the buyers and seller are both not in a rush, and there are even a growing number of buyers awaiting for Cai Yue Xun's movie version of <Black & White>, as they plan to buy the rights for both the TV drama and the movie at the same time.

Ying Xiong's popularity skyrocketed; Exposure increases ten-folds

Apart from the high pricing of the overseas broadcasting rights, <Black & White>'s male lead Mark Zhao's price has also gone up. Since the pilot on April 11, he has received many invitations from the fashion industry, and every appearance pays him more than a hundred thousand (NT). Although his manager selectively chooses from the invitations and decreasing his appearances from ten events to no more than five to avoid tiring his new potential star, he still needs to go on shows to promote the drama, and in addition to media interviews, Mark Zhao can be said to be in the top spot of getting exposure.

As a newcomer, Mark Zhao keeps an open attitude towards going to promotional events. As long as it is arranged by his agency, he is very willing to participate. However, in the past two months, he has also had many "questions" arise. His biggest confusion is actually: A charity organization also has a "brand" and their own stand, "Recently, there has been a lot of charity organizations asking me to be their spokesperson, so I also feel that my popular has risen and that I should make use of it to help them receive more donations. But I couldn't believe that one of the organizations expressed that if I become a spokesperson for one organization, I am not suitable to be a spokesperson for another, or it will be confusing. I really don't understand it."

Plot takes a twist near the ending

According to <Black & White>'s PR Tina, she reveals that since Pi Zi thought that he was Chen Lin's (played by Ivy Chen) brother, Pi Zi and Lan Xi Ying (played by Janine Zhang), the forensic officer, have become closer. The audience expresses the most interest in this love triangle. Those who found out that Pi Zi and Chen Lin are not brothers and sisters, would call the network to protest whenever they see Pi Zi suffering pain and struggles because of love. The audience complains in anger, "They're not even brothers and sisters, so stop making Pi Zi sad." Staff members have been answering phone calls non-stop and are out of breath as they try to comfort the viewers' emotions.

Leaving the ending open

Of course, in the tight-paced drama, Pi Zi, Chen Lin, Ying Xiong, and Lan Xi Ying are all intervened into each other's relationships. But as to the most anticipated outcome of whom gets paired with whom, it is believed that in the last four episodes of <Black & White>, an open ending will be left to the audience. They will not end the story in concrete and will leave the audience hanging. From our understanding, Director Cai Yue Xun will be leaving some plot lines unanswered. This is because these plot lines will serve as a basis for the movie version of <Black & White>, which will then continue to unveil the truth.

When <Black & White> is broadcasted each week, Director Cai Yue Xun and his wife Yu Xiao Wei, Vic Zhou, Mark Zhao and his father Zhao Shu Hai, Ivy Chen, Janine Zhang, and other staff members would gather at one of their homes to watch. To thank the citizens of Gao Xiong for cooperating with the filming of <Black & White>, Director Cai Yue Xun decided that on June 27, he will bring all "TV watching" members to Gao Xiong, making their 10-week tradition a public event. They will be holding a party at Time Avenue, which is located in front of Dream Mall. They would like to invite all their viewers and citizens of Gao Xiong to join the main cast members to watch the final two episodes, and let this drama have a perfect closure.
