Let’s Watch Meteor Shower Again released a giant batch of stills today.
… of the country.
In fact, whip out your umbrellas (if you’re a hater) or binoculars (if you’re a supporter) because a new round of meteor shower is coming!
An iconic example of speculation gone wild pre major event (i.e. concert) would be, most recently, Jason Zhang (Zhang Jie) and Xie Na’s break up rumor. (A second, Yu HaoMing and Liu XiJun’s purported relationship that gave Liu’s post-Super Girl career a nice jump-start.)
Jason Zhang and Xie Na’s relationship has been a media concern, dating back to his Super Boy days. When the duet happened at the end of 2008, fans went ecstatic over the quasi-confession (Ok I admit, I was one). Although they both remain elusive towards the subject, they are, in fact, treated like a pair of high-profile celebrity couple. Then after the release of Jason Zhang’s new album and before his concert, which took place today at the Workers Stadium in Beijing, “speculation” of their break up somehow found its way to people’s dinner table gossip. The timing seems a little… conspicuous.
I’m not one to judge any managing firm’s marketing technique, if it indeed is a ploy to attract attention (like Zhang Jie needed it; look at how well he’s done on Hunan TV’s Yi Hu Bai Ying); but if anything positive came out of it, it’s the fans’ support.
Zhang Jie is well loved and so his concert was seated to its maximum capacity (approx. 12,000 people) with an additional 350 seats added last minute.
