Today is the 2nd day for TVB stars promo tour in Changsha, and also the most crowded event. Bowie Lam, Charmaine Sheh, Joe Ma, Myolie Wu, Sharon Chan and Selena Li arrived at Changsha to attend mass fans gathering. Fans from all over China gathered at the venue to have a closer interaction with their idols.

Charmaine helping fans to break the ice

It's indeed rare for TVB to send out 6 of their popular stars together for promotion. A lot of fans purposely traveled from other states just to see their idols. The fans gathering was scheduled to start at 3.30pm, but fans started to wait at the venue as early as 9am. They feel it was worth it as this gathering gave them the opportunity to interact with their idols, which is very rare. During one of the segment, one of Charmaine fans got so excited that she went speechless. Charmaine helped by saying: "Well, you can give me a kiss then." Finally the fans said: "Charmaine, you are so beautiful, us Hunan people loves you!"

Joe's fans giving him a tough time

At the gathering, there's a segment where fans can pose a challenge to their idol. For example having the stars speak Hunan dialect or performing aerobic dance. However, the toughest challenge must be Joe's, as in the "Let's Perform Together" segment the host asked what kind of performance they would like to see, and a lady fans suggested: "Earlier I saw your performance in [Strictly Come Dancing], in there you lifted your dance partner around. Even though I'm a little plump, I'd like to try it out too!" Joe laughed and pretended that he doesn't hear the request clearly. However in the end he thought out of another method, that is to allow the fans to stand on his thigh and then lift her up. The crowd shrieked in amazement and even the host felt envious.

TVB stars joins excited fans in singing contest

[Sina 13/03/2008]

Yesterday is the second day of TVB stars promo tour in Changsha. After filming promotional clips for HunanTV, the 3 stars Bowie Lam, Charmaine Sheh and Joe Ma rushed to the mass fans gathering scheduled at noon. On the other hand Myolie Wu, Sharon Chan and Selena Li arrived at Changsha airport at 1:45pm and rushed over as well without taking a break.

This mass fans gathering have attracted many passionate fans. Excited fans started to wait at the venue as early as 9am. When the 6 stars made their appearance, all the fans started shouting excitedly, displaying their passionate feelings. After signing their names on the promotional board, the 6 stars went up onstage and started to interact with fans.

The TVB stars are here in Changsha to promote recently and upcoming TVB series aired on HunanTV such as [Glittering Days], [Land of Wealth], [Dance of Passion] and [To Grow With Love]. At the same time the 2nd season of [Strictly Come Dancing] will be held in April. Before the stars appeared, the organizers broadcast some of their series and event clips, making the fans feel excited. When the stars finally appeared, the fans loudly cheers to welcome their idols.

The 6 stars said hello to fans in Hunan dialect and the fans gathering officially begins. The first segment "Let's sing together" is to promote [Glittering Days]. [GD] is filled with songs and dances from 1960's and took the first spot in Mainland nationwide ratings. Fans are surprised that Charmaine, who portrayed 'wild fowl transformed into phoenix' farmer girl sang all the songs by herself in the series. In this segment, the host picked a few lucky fans play singing games with idols. The rule is that each song must have the word 'spring' and 'star' in them. After a fierce battle, Charmaine is indeed the super singer in the series with their team A (along with Bowie & Joe) winning against team B in the game.

The next segment is "Let's exercise together". Each stars have their own favorite sports for example jogging, swimming, high jump etc. For Myolie who gained nearly 40 pounds for her role as Ho Mei Tin in [TGWL], shared her secret on how to regain her slim figure quickly after filming. Afterwards the stars mimicked some dance moves under dance teacher's guidance and showed off beautiful poses. Joe pretended to be jealous and started to make jokes, mimicking a stiff mannequin and making the crowd laugh. [TGWL] will be aired after [GD] finished its run on HunanTV and fans will be able to appreciate Myolie's fine acting in the series.

As for the last segment "Let's perform together", the host invited some fans onstage to perform with Bowie. Even though Bowie doesn't have much on-screen scene with Charmaine in [DOP], the arduous filming process left a deep impression in both of them. Bowie's role Yim Man Hei is a very aggressive clan leader but his romance and fate is extremely volatile and filled with obstacles. Bowie personally loves this role, even more than his Sun Bak Yeung role in [War & Beauty]. The lucky fans also have the opportunity to mimic Yim Man Hei's arrogant look alongside Bowie. He also kept making 'cool' expression to tease fans, showing his friendly side.

After the fans gathering ended, the group will divide into two team and rushed to two different station to attend TV shows. They will be sharing their experience and feelings on the show, therefore fans should not be missing these shows. Charmaine and Joe will be returning to Hong Kong the next day while Bowie, Sharon and Selina will be attending the live telecast of "Happy 2008" on 14th of March.
