This is the theme for Leehom Wang’s directorial debut Love in Disguise, premiering August Thursday 12th, right on time for the debut of his new album 18 Martial Arts… which I am already pre-ordering (plus, re-packaged Jing Chang’s album xD and other stuff from YesAsia… thankyouverymuch).

I feel the MV spoils the film though, but that’s just me. The song’s good, though.

Lee Hom does everything. He writes his own music, plays like 14 instruments… since he’s American, he learned to speak Mandarin… and Cantonese… and Japanese… and he even speaks French. Etc. Etc.

To make things short, Lee Hom is a pretty awesome musician.

And he’s acted before… not so sure about Moon Child, but Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution is a VERY good project to have on your CV… and now, Love in Disguise is his debut as a director.

call me crazy, but this reminded me of Nodame Cantabile. It’s the music setting. Plus, big points for Joan Chen ;P not tagging this as a trailer yet.

Also, subtitled come from the Official Wang Lee Hom channel. Now they only need to add his videos, so I don’t need to read “Sony BMG doesn’t allow the stream of this video in your region” Argh!

Early YAM 010!

MY85 made me realize that tomorrow is the 13th, so I decided to release this today.

Thanks to Julz, who’s always a diligent writer.
and MY85… and well, Maca who keeps tracks of her films.

I just want you to head over here.

Look! It’s the girl from Center Stage!

Hmm… seems like these films take FOREVER to be released.

Yes, this is a romantic comedy post.

Entertainment Weekly has a new post titled What Hollywood Gets Wrong about Women and Marriage, in light of the recent release of Amy Adams’ Leap Year.

Obviously, Rom-Coms are a branch of Chick Flicks, and Chick Flicks are doomed. Especially in the West, where Chick Flick is a super negative tag on a film. Whip Ip (which I enjoyed a lot) is a Chick Flick, and it’s fun. My dad enjoyed it a lot. We should totally watch Roller Derby together.

But Rom-Coms, where they specifically want a female character to find love/get together/get married with someone, they are doomed on a different level. American (as a continent) Romantic Comedies forget that it’s not about people getting together or marrying, and completely forget the characters. In the end, we just don’t care enough for the character to care if she is or not getting the guy.

Do you recall any good romantic comedies of the past 10 years?

I remember I liked Imagine Me & You, My Sassy Girl (Korean version), Saving Face, Love Actually, Were the World Mine, Love me if You Dare~~~ well, that’s a pretty gay selection. LOL
