After taking over entertainment from CCTV, Hunan TV seems to also be gaining increasing responsibility in foreign affairs in the TV world as it hosts everything from the CCP-KMT party forum to Chinese competitions for foreigners.
First up is the more entertaining competition. Chinese Bridge is a collaboration with the Chinese national Hanban committee. The preliminaries are hosted in various countries around the world, with the top winners going on Hunan TV for the finals, where they’ll make many Chinese ashamed at their lack knowledge of their own culture. Present at the opening ceremony of Chinese Bridge are , of course, the five boys who bridged cpop and kpop and the four boys who hopefully will do even more for bridging Chinese entertainment and the rest of the world.
H4 without Xun:
Next up is the less fun but more important CCP-KMT forum concert. Other than the fact that the CCP would host this in Hunan and not on CCTV, most people probably care more about the fact that this concert signifies the return of both Vicki Zhao Wei and Jane Zhang to Hunan TV. Vicki Zhao sings the theme of her and Hunan’s classic “Princess of Returning Pearl,” while Jane sings a Hunan folksong and a duet with the president of the KMT.
Wu Boxiong sings a lot better than former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke.
Is anyone else confused with how Wang Han suddenly popped out? Anyways, Super Girls were also present at both concerts, with knock outs Tao Le, Cheng Chen and Liu Meihan at the former and the top ten at the latter, along with Aska Yang and Evan Yo. Hobielover, you should really join Chinese Bridge.
