|Show Lo Passes Out Hug Vouchers ; Inviting Fans For Back Up!||1/24/09|
|On the 22nd, Show "Xiao Zhu [Little Pig]" Lo held a Guinness World Record event. Party Boys attended to support, and attacked Show's private areas in front of Mama Lo, hurting him so much Show screamed, "Stop poking my butt! Hurts!"|
To teach 2,000 fans how to do the "back up" dance, Show taught the dance in slow motion, and danced for a continuous 75 minutes, making him heat up so much that he stripped while dancing, until he was only wearing a t-shirt. He also passed out Show's personal vouchers to his fans. As long as you participated in the event, you can earn a Show-Hug voucher. Show laughed and said, "Come on over! I did push-ups, I'll guarantee that I'll hug you tight!"
Nono, who rushed to come and support him, again used his skills of a poisonous tongue and teased that the back up dance felt like rehabilitation exercises. Then suggested that friends and family lift Show into the air and throw him amidst the fans. This had Mama Lo worried and came out to save her precious son. Mama Lo was in the music video and picked Show up. Yesterday, she seemed a little weak, where Show teased, because there was money in filming the music video, so that's why she was strong.

|Show Luo's 'Calling Big Star' flies; male lead changes to Mike He||1/20/09|
|Lately, Show Luo is quite unlucky, both in music and drama industry. The music circle points finger at him, saying he is ?buying charts? and the film circle gives his role to someone else. Intially, Show was going to be the male lead of new idol drama ?Calling Big Star? with Ah Sa as female lead, but just before filming started, did Show realize that producer Angie Chai had given his role to Mike He, without telling him. Show said in private: ?Tell Angie sis to give the drama back to me.?|
Angie makes a decision for her 'love'
Mike He is Angie?s ?favourite?, they have collaborated in ?Devil Beside You?, ?Exchange Love?and ?Infernal Lover?. However, the filming process of ?Infernal Lover? did not go very smoothly ? changing director, changing female lead and re-shooting, it dragged on for 7 whole months. Angie felt apologetic to Mike, so she had to sacrifice Show and give ?Calling Big Star? to Mike as compensation.
Promises another drama to Show
Show?s manager clarified: ?Initially, Angie told us that ?Calling Big Star? would begin filming in November, but because Show was going to release his album in December, therefore the schedule clashed.? But actually, ?Calling Big Star? will begin filming after Chinese New Year? Towards this, Show?s manager said: ?No worries la, Angie has already promised that she will give another drama to Show.?
However, Mike?s manager said that Mike had already seen the script for ?Calling Big Star? when he was filming ?Why Why Love?. She said: ?Why does Angie need to compensate, it?s not like Mike doesn?t have anything to film.? But she revealed that because of the problems during filming ?Infernal Lover?, Angie raised Mike?s pay, to express her apologies.
Guo Shi Lun's revealation angers Show
Everything is indeed not going smoothly for Show; earlier, Guo Shi Lun went on ?Kang Xi Lai Le? and he claimed that Show took girls to a hotel, and towards this, Show?s manager said angrily: ?I don?t want to talk about this person, if he says it one more time, we will sue him.? As for Show?s fans, they will hold a ?Back Up Show? event at the Hua Shan Arts Centre on the afternoon of the 22nd, wanting to challenge the Guiness Records.

Manager revealed that, the 2 are indeed negotiating details for the ad.
Will collaborate to film ad
After a speedy interview yesterday noon, someone witnessed Jolin heading to her management company to get some rest. Afterwards, left and with the freezing wind blowing in her face, to the extent where it made her face turn green, she caught a taxi to the GFR Hotel and headed to the lounge on the 19th floor. Approximately 10 minutes later, Show also appeared at the entrance of the hotel, and when he saw the media had already arrived, he said alarmedly: ?How come you guys are here!?

|Xiao Zhu wants to duet with Da S||1/13/09|
|Xiao Zhu held an autograph signing session in Shanghai the other day for his latest album "Trendy Man". Because of the cold weather, Xiao Zhu went on stage 30 minutes ahead of time, "Last time, I remember when I held an autograph event, it went for 7 hours, since its too cold we should have a "limit" and go home early, I will sign as many and fast as I can," he then added "for those who can't have autographs, don't be discourage, I will come back"|
Xiao Zhu had been collaborating with female stars for his past albums, but for the first time on his latest album, he'd gone solo. When the media asked for the reason, Xiao Zhu immediately answered "Because during the album preparations, Da S had a tight movie schedule, I certainly must have a duet with her next time". When the repoters asked him why he picked Da S, Xiao Zhu said with excitement : "Because she is my lucky goddess!", " You see how we filmed "Corner with Love" beautifully, and the song "Love Corner " also became a hit, I certainly want another collaboration with her!"
|Lee Hom Wang Accuses Show Lo of Buying Out The Charts||1/13/09|
|The day before yesterday, Show "Xiao Zhu [Little Pig]" Lo happily celebrated his album's taking of first place, and announced that the number of records sold in Taiwan was 81,158 copies. When he was asked how he felt about defeating Lee Hom Wang, Show responded, "I only compete with myself."|
Unthinkably, Lee Hom's record company, Sony, had responded directly to the sales record competition, and accused Show's management of buying out the charts.
In their declaration, Sony expressed, "The music industry knows that when artists from a certain management company release albums, they always think of ways to get first place. We're most clear that Lee Hom Wang's record sales is the real number 1." Lee Hom also said, "My boss Tsui Cheng Dong told me that these billboards aren't trustworthy, I don't have to care about them."
When Jay Chou released his album a couple years ago, he had once criticized the director of EMI of the time, Chen Je Shan (Who now is Warner Music's chairman) of adding fluff to Jolin Tsai's record sales. Today, Lee Hom has followed Jay Chou and is now speculative of Show Lo's record sales number. Sony also very directly accused the management company, which clearly implies Jolin and Show's management, Mars. However, Sony's "Main girl" Rainie Yang is also from Mars.
This declaration full of competitiveness and argument, Show's management company couldn't help be respond, "In all the record stores, digital download of ring tones, etc., in these ten different billboards, Show is all number one. Every autograph session he's signed at least 5,000 copies more or less. His #1 record sales is without a doubt a fact. We will continue to work hard, and not find any excuses."
Show and his company stands on the same point of view, believing that rank doesn't matter. The quality of music and the hard work of the artist is the things that are most worth discussing.

|Show Lo's New Year Autograph Session - 4,000 Fans Accompany Him||1/5/09|
|The first day of 2009 at 1 A.M., Show Lo arrived in Taichung's HsuiLee Plaza to spend the first day of 2009 with his fans! Due to the various new years' events everywhere, the entire plaza was under traffic patrolling. There were so many people that even Show's vehicles were unable to get in, fans were crowded everywhere, so the vehicle moved at the speed of a bull's stride. Show also expressed, "After so many years, this is the first time I've held an autograph session at midnight! It's a really special experience, I will definitely remember the first day of 2009 forever!" Because he was worried that the fans that were accompanying him through the night would catch a cold, he personally brewed 6 big pots of ginger soup, so everyone would keep warm. But at the even there were nearly 4,000 people, so Show could only say to everyone, "Drink sparingly, just drink a bottle cap full!"|
As the perfectionist he is, during his performance, he especially suited up in a vaquero outfit. But when the autographing began, he didn't bother keeping up his handsome-ness, and put on a huge overcoat and wrapped himself tightly, leaving only his face and his hands. Fans teased and said, "His neck disappeared!" Show also said, "I signed until I almost fell asleep!" But he was still doing little silly acts to keep his hard-working fans amused and awake.
When he was almost done with the autographing, it was almost 6 A.M. Show also kept his promise and had his staff buy 100 burgers and ginger soups for those fans that had been there so they wouldn't be hungry and catch cold. His fans were obviously extremely moved.
In speaking of 2009 new years resolutions, Show also revealed that he hasn't got anything too wild, but it's not easy to achieve either, "Lots of people wish to try different things, new jobs! I just hope that I can do my job well as an artist. Execute my performances well each and every time, whether it's music, drama, commercials, events, I hope to have everyone see my hard work!" But upon hearing that Lo Mama wanted to hold "Little Pig grandchildren," Show jokingly said, "So, now do I have to find a girlfriend that has a marriage on her mind? I feel that marriage and children are very sacred! So it'll have to come slowly! I will try my best!"
|Show Lo Vs. Lee Hom - Wins By a Landslide ; Easily Capturing Taiwan's Billboard||1/5/09|
| Taiwan, at the end of 2008, those artists that released new albums were almost all male. On the charts this week, Taiwan's two big stars were head on : Show Lo vs. Lee Hom Wang. The results were clear, Show Lo's newest album "Trendy Man" sales were greater than Lee Hom's "Heart Beat" by 20+%, with real figured, Lee Hom lost by a crushing defeat. Even though showbiz isn't a place that only involves hard work for success, but Show Lo's diligence can be seen by anyone with eyes. A few years back, when Lee Hom was at the apex of his career, Show Lo was half-famous second line entertainer, but now Show Lo has become "Taiwan's Dance King." He opened his new path beginning with dance, then with his "pop king" status popularity, he became Taiwan's all around idol. His new album "Trendy Man" is the key to continuing his contract with his record company, thus his record company very willingly and paid high costs to promote for Show Lo, becoming Gold Typhoon's "main event." Lee Hom is working more and more towards the "artistic world," probably believing it not worth it to sing anymore of those audience attracting songs. Acting and hold concerts have seemingly slowly replaced releasing albums, and releasing albums seems to have been neglected by Lee Hom. In comparison, though both Show Lo and Lee Hom both started out as idols, but Show Lo, who had halfway through became a comedian, does not have the burden of the idol, he can be silly, do impressions, everything. And on top of that, he's basically on TV everyday in Taiwan because of his hosting, ultimately showing his most down-to-earth side to everyone. Lee Hom, who has released 10+ albums, has been a 'sunshine-y' guy since entering the business, and now has let listeners become esthetic and perhaps fatigued. Strangely enough, after 10+ Mandarin albums, Lee Hom's is still not quite smooth with his Mandarin. Lee Hom keeps wanting to slab Chinese culture into R&B, why not get a stronger command of the language first. Of course we could accept some "ABC" accents, but his accent has strangely stuck for ten some years, how strange it really is.|
Naturally, this week's top ranker is Show Lo's "Trendy Man," and Lee Hom Wang's "Heart Beat", even with pre-orders, came in third, this super-healthy sunshine boy hasn't received low rankings in a long time. This week's number two is May Day's album "Poetry of the Day After," this album is reliant on the concert tickets that come with the album purchase, thus constantly staying on the board, again receiving high sales percentage this week, being its 11th week on the shelf, yet still sitting in the top three. May Day has this year's "Taiwan's Selling Champions" undoubtedly. Speaking of which, celebrities, especially big shots, release their albums at the end of the year for a reason, and that is, the "Taiwan Golden Melody Awards." Only those artists that released an album before 01/01/2009 are able to participate in the annual Golden Melodies judging. This means that those that released albums this week, Lee Hom Wang and Show Lo, and also last week's Khalil Fong and Stanley Huang are all paving their way for the "Golden Melody Awards." This year's Golden Melody Awards competition for male artists is fierce. As for female, Jasmine Leong has passed the deadline, and almost all of pop queens will be missing out on the 2008 Golden Melody Awards. As for now, the popular Rainie Yang and Elva Hsiao have big chances. This week, Rainie Yang's "Not Yet a Women" was re-released bringing her up to fourth place. Her new re-release includes a documentary of her celebratory concert, which is better than her previous version with her drama's merchandise. Every year, Rainie Yang has candles burning at both ends, an album and a drama. This year, her album seems to have lost popularity, especially when she first released the album, the big news about her music video accused of "plagiarizing," which probably affected her album promotions. But Rainie's new drama is fairly successful, with the character "Chiang Hsiao Hua" and her "Taiwanese Mandarin."
As for other new albums, the blind artist Hsiao Huang Chi's new album "I am Hsiao Huang Chi" was rank 18. He became extremely popular after singers from One Million Stars sang one of his songs, thus he was finally able to get a taste of popularity. Hsiao Huang Chi's work contains a lot of social goodhearted-ness, but because most of his work is in Taiwanese, besides the widely popular song "You are my eyes" in Mainland China, they know very little of the rest of his work. This time, he finally released a Mandarin album, and even there was little expenditures for its production, there isn't a bit less of that sentiment. The upbeat hit "I am your fire department" is hard to forget. The truth is, blind people have a unique pureness of heart, especially this happy blind artist. After listening to his songs, perhaps it isn't the songs that we remember, but it's that pure and straightforward feeling.
|Rainie Yang does 'drip dance' ; Show Luo dances 128 moves in 20 seconds||12/19/08|
|Rainie Yang and Show Luo have been practising dancing non-stop for their new album. Rainie leads a group of pretty nurses to challenge ?drip dance?. They each hold a drip pole, and dance till both hands have bruises. Because she must do dance movements around the pole, she shyly said, ?It?s like doing pole dance!?|
As for Show, his album will be released on the 26th of December. His dance moves are extremely difficult, and he must complete a total of 128 moves in only 20 seconds. Hence, he specially invited Henry Link from Italy, who was once Michael Jackson?s dance teacher to help him. However, before he arrived to Taiwan, the 2 had to communicate via video past midnight. As there were language barriers, they could only communicate via physical language, and Show could not help but laugh: ?A big man like me, dancing and making sounds like ?en en ah ah?to a screen at midnight, if people saw me, they would definitely think I am weird!? Show also has to wear crystal gloves that weigh 5kg and hence his arms got cut and bled; Show cried, ?Swollen like pig hooves!?

Afterwards, Aaron invited everyone to go and eat spicy hot pot together, and he made a toast to all the workers and dancers. He revealed that he is about to head to Guang Zhou to rehearse.
|Show Luo films ad; makes girls feel very comfortable||12/19/08|
|Show Luo really is a girl?s ?best friend?, endorsing female supplies, his value is now 5 times more than it was 5 years ago!|
In 2004, Show filmed an ad to promote female supplies. Back then, he was paid 800,000NT. 5 years later, he is now paid 4,000,000NT, which is 5 times more than before. During filming, the female lead leans on Show, and this made his heart beat rapidly. He said: ?It?s been a long time since I?ve smelled a girl?s hair.? The female lead had big clear eyes, and with her long black shiny hair, she really was Show?s ?dish?. He immediately made the most of this opportunity: ?Next time, we can collaborate again in a MV,? expressing his good impression of her.
Show really knows how to make a girl happy. Afterwards, the female lead said: ?He is very good-looking, very friendly, makes me feel very comfortable.? When Show heard this, he laughed: ?Comfortable? This is the first time a girl has praised me like this, it?s quite special, but still I feel very happy. How about you just say I?m a sanitary pad!?
