You see this video? This is Zhang Ji Zhong's recent TELEVISED birthday celebration ... in his honor. All the stars came out to give shout-outs, including the likes of Yang Mi
and Jessey Meng Guang Mei
from Zhang Ji Zhong's professional past.
Wu Yue, Zang Jin Sheng, and Xu Jin Jiang
(Elvis Tsui) came out on stage with Zhang Ji Zhong and helped him celebrate. And also presented him with a great birthday present.
I don't see anyone giving a crap about what's-her-face ... the producer of 2008 Condor Heroes
. It's cause no one cares. And Lee Kwok-lap
doesn't even have a Wikipedia entry. WEAK! Everybody has one!
Zhang Ji Zhong and myself kinda think alike ... he probably hates Hu Ge as much as I do
. That's why Zhang Ji Zhong has collaborated with nearly every worthwhile TV star in the past decade (from Vincent Jiao to Nie Yuan to Ady An to Eva Huang
) but NEVER with Hu Ge.
If Zhang Ji Zhong was forced to work with Hu Ge, he'd probably slap that idiot to death before they ever finished shooting.
HE ZHUO YAN
Take He Zhuo Yan
for example. She was LITERALLY MADE by Zhang Ji Zhong
. To quote her Wikipedia entry, she "emerged as champion of the Zhang Jizhong category of the Chinese Yahoo Three Directors Star Search programme" ...
thus becoming a STAR.
Zhang Ji Zhong is so prominent he has his own CATEGORIES.
I've never heard of a Lee Kwok-lap category, however ...
And Zhang Ji Zhong LOVED He Zhuo Yan so much thereafter, he cast her in everything. Including giving her almost FOUR entire episodes in Journey to the West
(2012). Seriously. It's almost four entire episodes of just her character trying to seduce and rape Nie Yuan's character. And it's cinema GOLD.
Zhang Ji Zhong eventually edited down Ady An's scenes down to her having almost no lines at all ... but didn't have the heart to cut out anything of He Zhuo Yan's. What does THAT tell you?
