BTW, I like the flea market green sneakers. If you read YH's Sina blog, he's really close to his mom. He discusses each role in depth with her before shooting.
The CP gang...I like LSS best like this without make-up.
Mystery solved...the red sneakers came from LSS during LOCH08 days.

Paris Hilton's mantra about never repeating clothes in NY Post...haha! So unlike HG, YH & co. with their scruffy clothes and shoes:
"Till now, it was just whispered in the halls of fame that any A-list celeb would not even be caught dead in a repeat outfit. And socialite Paris Hilton only reiterated this vice of uber consumerism when she confessed that she never wears an outfit more than once."
Read in a Chinese magazine that speculated HG's fee per episode should be now almost on par with HXM's (RMB100K per episode - altho I think majority of the fee goes to the management co.) - don't know how true it is. I wonder how much YH is worth...

A popular music variety show on Yunnan TV to publicise the launch of Hu Ge's new album "Blue Light". Took place 9 July 2010.
Hu Ge's wearing the same clothes he wore at LOCH promo 2 years ago. YH prob just got out of bed (look at the messy hair) but I'm so glad he's wearing black shoes.
Look, it's the same bug-eye man T-shirt he wore at Tan Ban interview on "Fog of Dragons" set:

Yeah, does anyone know what show that was?
You can see the show on this link:
Hu Ge is trying out a harmonica that Yuan Hong gave him. Yuan Hong's hair looks so...errr. Don't you think they are taking the cheap scruffy look a bit too far?
Here's a link to Hu Ge performing at the show. Video sound is a bit off tho.
The singing is the main reason why he's way more popular than Yuan Hong.

^Thank you so much! Lol, the video is cute. But yeah, I don't think the cheap thing is impressing anyone...
From what I see from the pics above, Yuan Hong still looks good in his casual outfit. Nothing cheap about it. They just look like anyone else out on a casual Sunday. His hair does require brushing up. Should watch his demeanour before he goes out.
I actually felt celebrities take the 'Never-wear-anything-more-than-once' philosophy and royal dressing too far. It's really bad to encourage such material ambitions in society where moral values are going down the hill. It's really a waste just to wear anything once, not to say branded products. Also, it's really ironic that these celebrities wear royal outfits to charity shows and preach all the 'Save the misfortunates' slogans. A complete contradition in social values.
I think celebrities should look good in anything, including rags - like Snow White. Okay, going too far. Usually, they look great even in casual which makes commoners like me really jealous.
YH is not as famous, but I felt he's quite recognized for his ability. People are noticing him more and more.
I've seen him in a lot of roles, all solid performances. Luv his Yelu Qi and also as the Crown Prince in Shang Shu Fang. I also saw him in Shen Yi Da Dao Gong with Adam Cheng lately.
Perhaps Hu Ge has that idol look and can sing well, so is more famous. And HG has acted opposite Liu Yi Fei too.
Have you watched "Summer's Bubble"? It's really touching that HXM took a major pay cut to support his good friend Peter Ho and save "Summer's Bubble" from having a major investor pull out. Now if only he drops plastic bimbo Angelababy and go for a solid woman like Chen Zihan then he will earn lots more respect.
I don't like Adam Cheng's Shen Yi Da Dao Gong. Such a slapstick series. Nothing wrong with YH's performance but having that joke on his portfolio is such a bummer. I think his best performances were Yelu Xie in Young Warriors and YK in LOCH2008. He suits the angsty, brooding sort of character so I'm looking forward to "Fog of Dragons".
That's a new jacket...for a change.

I still feel that HXM is a decent enough actor, just that his fame was over-rated after YG. He was already quite recognized before he took on YG. The Hong Kong media should be blamed for his over-rated fame.
YH acted really well in LOCH2008. He portrayed the twists and turns and inner turmoil really convincing as YK. Found him extremely attractive as Yelu Xie with the moustache on. Could not recognize him at first, until I saw his name. He looks much older with the moustache too, more mature.
i would recommend watching it, its different than other bubbly comedic/sappy melodramatic taiwanese dramas.
When I watch a series/movie, I want to see the story of people who have more perfection and goodness than the average human. At least one protagonist should be more admirable than a regular person. I felt like all three protagonists were just as self-pitying and self-pitying as the rest of us.
