I started this thread because i think we need this to be updated.. because a sunshine girl is always ahead of everyone... So post here news, interviews, articles, and stories you want to share to keep everyone updated.


Exclusive: The real Wu Chun and Calvin Chen revealed
By Rachelle Siazon

For two days, the ABS-CBN compound was swarmed by a multitude of fans who were hoping to catch a glimpse of Asian heartthrobs Wu Chun and Calvin Chen. In fact, some of them even flew in from Singapore and Hong Kong to catch the Taiwanese idols—who were in town for a promo tour of Romantic Princess—in Manila. The two made appearances on Entertainment Live!, ASAP ’08, The Buzz, and Pinoy Dream Academy 4th Gala Night where they performed their group Fahrenheit’s hit song New Home, the theme to Romantic Princess.

In an exclusive interview, talked with Chun and Calvin about families, staying true to themselves, and about performing in the Philippines for the first time. “It was very exciting but we were very nervous as well because this is our first time to perform here in the Philippines. But of course, we are very happy that we have the chance to sing our song here. And the audience was great! I think they're so into it. We are very lucky that we’ve got so much support from so many people from around the world. Because we are working very hard and the good feedback is a very great motivation for us,” said Chun.

Being able to visit different countries is definitely one of the perks of celebrities like them. But for Chun whose family is based in Brunei, he feels that he misses out on a lot of family bonding experiences. “I was born in Brunei and my family is there. At first, every time I go home [to Taiwan], I feel lonely. And until now I still miss home. I think this is the biggest adjustment that I needed to do. What I miss most I think is the air. You know the feeling that everyday you wake up you are in your house, surrounded by your family. That’s very different.”

Calvin also agreed with Chun. “That's true you know—losing time to spend with my family—even though I live with them in Taiwan. I can see them most of the time but whenever I go home, they are already sleeping. And when I wake up in the afternoon, they already left for work.” He further described his life off cam. “Most actors are worried about going out in public. But for me, I don’t want to change too much. I still go out with my friends—even female friends—and have dinner. If I care too much, [then] I would lose many, many things. So I still want to be me.”

Fortunately for Calvin, he’ll be going to Canada where he took up his college studies and masters degree in Economics. “I’m going there by the end of August for the Sunshine Boyz contest—the male pageant where I was discovered before. I am going to be their special guest with Aaron (Yan), another member of Fahrenheit. The good thing is I can go back to look around and breathe the fresh air there, enjoy the sunshine and the beach,” Calvin excitedly shared.

Hanging out with family, friends—and girlfriends?

Their schedules are often so filled with tours, TV projects, and various public appearances that they seldom have free time for themselves. But when they do catch a break, they usually spend quality time with family and friends doing simple things like hanging out, watching movies, or eating at their favorite restaurants.

Their tight schedules are also the reason why they can’t seem to find that one special girl. There were rumors, however, that Chun was dating his Hana Kimi co-star Ella Chen. But Chun denied this, saying that among his leading ladies, he’s closest to Ella because they’re both managed by the same company, Comic International Productions. “From the very start, even before we filmed Hana Kimi, we were already close and we had a lot of projects together,” Chun clarified.

Finding “The One”

Since these Taiwanese superstars are still single, asked what would it take to win them over and discovered that their thoughts on love and romance are somewhat old-fashioned and very family-oriented. “The appearance or looks don’t have to be a certain type. For me, the more important thing is the feeling. Like she cannot be just a girlfriend, she can also be family or a close friend to me, to share everything with me. I can even express my fears and my worries in front of her and I won’t feel embarrassed,” was Calvin’s description of his ideal girl.

Chun answered similarly. “I think feeling is important if you want to have a long-term relationship. Both of you can trust each other and are willing to share everything.” Calvin added, “And you have the same values, the same life goal to work hard together.”

Fan adoration and obsession

Judging from the number of fans seen in and around the ABS-CBN compound throughout the duration of Chun and Calvin’s promo tour, it wouldn’t come as a shock if they attract a lot of stalkers. But instead of freaking out like other celebrities, they are more concerned with the welfare of overeager fans.

“The thing that troubles me sometimes is that they wait downstairs at my place late at night. One night when I finished work and I’m on my way home at about 2 am, she's still waiting there all by herself and worse, it was raining then. So I ask her, ‘Why are you still here? It’s already late.’ And she says, ‘It’s okay. My family will come pick me up later.’ I think it's not good because she makes her family and even myself worried,” Calvin exclaimed.

So what does he do whenever this happens? “If there are people downstairs waiting for me, I just tell them to go home and say, ‘I won’t do anything for you. I won’t take pictures with you. I won’t do autographs.’ Because if I keep doing that [signing autographs and taking photos], they'll think that it's okay for them to come to my place,” said Calvin. As for Chun, he advised their supporters to keep their own safety in mind, “We hope that they would be very careful when they follow us, when they go to our activities. We do not want them to do something that will put them in danger and make their families worry.”

here is their latest picture.. ;D

i just saw him here.. hahahahahahah! he touched my face!!! bwahahahahahaha!!!

Q: Which was your most memorable vacation during your school days?

C:'s probably the time where I went to Japan with my family! Because that was the 1st time, so everything feels new and interesting, the food was great, it was a lot of fun!

Q: Do you still remember how you felt about school re-opening after term break?

C: Because of having to face a new start, usually I would slowly recollect my calmness 1 week before school starts...also a time to start catching up on homework! When it comes to mood, there's a bit feeling of unwillingness to go back to school, still wanting to be on holiday!

Q: Which is your most unforgettable homework?

C: During summer holiday in childhood we had to complete a whole booklet of homework, sometimes we had to write journals each day~ Each time I always slack-off till the last week before school starts to catch up, so I often cannot remember what I did in the past, so I don't know what to write in my journal!

Q: If you are a teacher, what kind of holiday homework will you give your students?

C: Nowadays, students are too busy daily with their homework, and not have the chance to go outdoors, so I hope that students would take the time during the holiday to go out and walk around, to enjoy nature!

Q: Talk about your rebellious behaviour during school days

C: During junior high, senior high years, I was quite rebellious! That time I like to play, also very childish, often skip classes to go out to play, or I would hide at home to sleep and not go to classes.

What do you feel after having the first handshake event in Japan?
Calvin: The first time I came I was so nervous and didn’t know anything, but this time it felt like meeting friends so I enjoyed it very much. Also fans came from so many places to see us so I was very pleased. I would like to go to other places in Japan. I have been to Hiroshima and Tokyo, but I would like to go to other places too.

Calvin: I have a lot of things I haven’t done yet like being a presenter for a TV show, and I would like to do reporting on the cultures of different countries. Also I would like to act a role that I have never done before in dramas. As Fahrenheit, I will practice hard so we can show everyone a good performance.

Wu Zun jumps over to movies, Calvin turn to hosting

Fahreheit has been really famous, seeing that Wu Zun has slowly moved over to the big screens to act in movie 'Butterfly Lovers', Calvin Chen is secretly planning to change route and have his first try at hosting!

Wu Zun and Calvin Chen visited Philippines for GTV's 'Romantic Princess', the two had a PK for popularity, for two days consecutive, the local media reports have crossed many pages having a huge coverage but mostly its about Wu Zun. Be it news reports or photos, Wu Zun had the most coverage, but in reality, the 2 are equally popular among fans, Calvin Chen was bear-hugged, kissed at the lower ear and nearly was kissed at his most sensitive area. At the hotel he stayed, he even had fans calling him in the middle of the night to greet him, different from Wu Zun, Calvin Chen's smile has charms and is more friendly.

Endorsing Taiwan tourism bureau, Fahrenheit introduces scenic spots

Recently, Fahrenheit pushes F4 out of the way and became the new endorser for Taiwan tourism with aims to attack the Korea and Japan market. From known, the main theme for Fahrenheit will be different from the drama 'Wish to See You Again' acted by F4. This time they are planning a travel program to introduce the different scenic spots in Taiwan, and they are thinking of getting the member with the highest qualification from Fahrenheit, which is Calvin Chen who is currently studying Public Finance at National Chengchi University to host the program. And from known, Calvin Chen's management company, Comic Productions Co., Ltd is also currently planning to let him have a switch in the route, while Wu Zun, Jiro Wang and Aaron Yan are acting as the male lead in dramas, they want to let Calvin Chen begin hosting.

Speaking of the change in route to hosting, Calvin Chen said frankly, "I always had this idea, and is very interested" In April this year, he had a outdoor shooting for a Japan program 'CI-POP WORLD', and dated a girl who was over 100 kg, this first try at hosting a segment let him had taste of how hosting is like but whether he whether he will be hosting will still depend on time as they are in the midst of having a concert for Fahrenheit. As for the travel program, he said that currently he's not sure, but if it's really true, of course he will feel honored.

Wu Zun loves to bicker, especially likes to compete for cold jokes

Although stuck in the awkard stage of changing routes but the friendship of Wu Zun and Calvin Chen still did not change in the Philippines promotion. On the road, the 2 were always bickering, when the crew asked if Wu Zun if he still want one more beer, Calvin Chen purposely said, "He wants two more!" At one stage, they joked that they are not going to talk and have cold war, but in a blink of an eye, they were talking non-stop again and kept putting the other party down.
