A commenter recently requested us to give more updates on some specific guys in Chinese entertainment. Due to personal time constraints, we usually post on the bare bones basics in Chinese entertainment, like new releases, etc, that other site haven’t got to. But since she’s been pretty active on this site, we decided we would post on one of her requests.
Song Xiaobo was runner-up of the 2006 My Hero contest, which allows companies to sign talent afterward. He was deaf and mute, and thus, had more limited options in entertainment, but he’s been keeping very busy with acting and most recently, he opened a studio with friends. The first model he invited was Luo Jing, top 30 contestant of Jia You!Dragon Angels, the female version of My Hero.
You might remember Luo Jing because she was actually in English news a while back, when she was attacked by netizens for covering up her birth history (her mother had an extramarital affair). English reports erroneously attributed it to being about race (way to just ignore part-Indian Tan Lina from Supergirls whose race no one cares about). Neither reason deserves flack, but mostly, people really shouldn’t write articles based on netizen attacks in China, where netizens don’t represent the population, and where there are just too many of them to pick and choose quotes from.
Anyway, Luo Jing looks gorgeous here, as captured by Song Xiaobo.
This photoshoot was done last month, November. Since then he has taken many other photos of various others, including himself, for a photobook, whose release his friends like Wu Jianfei and Luo Jing helped to celebrate on December 16th. So for those of you heading to China, try looking for this in bookstores.
Song Xiaobo, who’s acted in various things, notably the Chinese Prince of Tennis Seasons 1 and 2, has not given that up either. He’s next starring in a play called Shi San Xing Zuo.
