Yay! He Cai Beijing is #14 on the Yes FM music chart! Not bad for an album that's not even released yet.

Thanks for posting the cute pics, TeresaL. Xiezhi looks so young and boyish! A really different look from his cool one in Westside Story.
Only 1 more day to go until the album is released!!!
YAY!!! 2moro 56 album is released.

56 appeared on today's wangyu. Here are the clips:

I read in Tony's thread and the 5566 thread in asian fanatics forum that their new album is delayed until Monday and there were a lot of people asking about their new album. A lot of people tried to pick up the album today, but it wasn't in stock.
I think that's great news that they are so much in demand. Here is the link:

Ya, I tried to collect the CD today but was told that I can only get it next week. If the delay is due to stock shortage because they did not expect so many orders, then I am happy to wait. Of course, I satisfied myself by listening to the songs online first. Apart from the 3 songs that they have already sung during the promo trip, their other songs are also very nice. The slower songs are really beautiful and the faster ones are rather cute and catchy.
Besides my pre-orders, I now want to get the regular album as well. I want the DVD and pictures that comes with the regular album.

I love that picture of Xiezhi in the white jacket! Thanks, exadel. Are those pictures from the regular version CD or from Play magazine?

Ahhh- Xiezhi looks so happy in those pictures! I guess they started appearing on some Taiwanese shows already to promote their new album.
The songs in this album are so nice. One of their best albums -definitely!
bonniec1, I think the picture of xiezhi in the white jacket should be the pictures that comes with the regular album. As for the Jan08 Play magazine, there is a write-up on their promo in Malaysia. So, the pictures in the magazine are from that event.
56 mentioned at their Taiwan autograph session that they had been busy recording shows for the Lunar New Year. The pictures that TeresaL posted are from 2 of these shows and there were news reports about these yesterday.
The 1st picture with 徐乃麟 is for the show 「无间道不道」. In this show, they talked about their peculiarity or flaw. Xiezhi said that he had become more forgetful. He usually can't remember the unimportant things e.g. at the end of a day's filming, he won't be able to recall what were the topics discussed and who were the guests in the shows that he was on earlier.
The rest of the pictures are from the show 麻辣天后宫 which I think will be shown on LNY since the set is all in red. They had psychics or fortune-tellers (or whatever you call them) to predict their career & love life in year 2008. 詹惟中 said that their career is on the rise and June 08 is the critical month. They said that 56 should stay together as a group and they will do well in China & Hong Kong. And here's what the psychics said about their love life:
Renfu will have lots of (桃花) female attraction & so may have an affair. But Renfu loves his family especially his daughter (they deduce this from the shape of his beautiful lips) so he may be able to restrain himself.
Xiezhi & Ding Xiaoqin will not marry this year. Xiezhi will probably marry when he is 33 years old.
Shaowei is popular with the opposite sex and may date more than one girl at a time (偷吃劈腿的行为). He is said to be extremely good in that aspect ... you know what I mean
Mengzhe will have relationship problems - they deduce this from his thick lips.
Knowing 56, they probably had lots of fun teasing each other when they hear what the psychics said. I don't think that 56 believe in such predictions, and xiezhi had said many times in his Lucky Strike show that working hard is more important as that can change your "pre-determined" path in life.
I hope I don't offend anyone, but frankly I also don't believe any of these psychic stuff. How can all the millions of Scorpions, Leos (stars) etc or Tigers, Rats (chinese zodiacs) etc in this world have the same kind of luck each year or share the same characteristics. And how can a person's life be shaped by their name. Furthermore, predictions about 56 for the year 2007 also didn't come true.
Btw, in case you are wondering why are they making funny faces in one of those pictures, it is because next year is the year of the rat and they are trying to imitate the rat.
Thanks for the info, exadel. That episode of "Ma La Tien Hou Gong' seems like an interesting show.
I don't really believe in fortune telling, but it is entertaining to find out what is being forecast for the coming year. Actually I remember from last year's New Year 'Lucky Strike' show that they predicted that Xiezhi wouldn't get married, which turned out to be true. Lucky guess, maybe.
I agree that 5566 will probably do well in Mainland China, but I'm not sure about Hong Kong. I hope so, since the main Chinese tv channel we get here in Toronto is TVB based so it would be nice to see 5566 go on some TVB shows.
Have just collected my pre-order CD yesterday. The picture of Xiezhi in the white jacket comes with the lyrics, so everyone should get those pictures regardless of which version they buy. I also get the DVD and calendar, but instead of a desk calendar, I get a pack of postcards with a different picture for each month.
Realised that there is no MV in this album. Wonder if they will come up with yet another version later on (改版) and include the MV in the new version. Personally, I hope they do because I want the MVs.
Btw, this show 勇往直前 will be telecast in China this Sunday. From the fans description, the games segment are rather fun & I hope they don't edit out too much of the show. You can see some pictures of the show here:
Be sure to watch out for this when it is posted on youtube or todou or bt.
Well, 56 will be in China again from this saturday 12 Jan to 21 Jan 08 for their next round of promo.
Actually this piece of news was posted on the official Jstar website a few days back, so not sure if you have already seen it.
It says that 56 has been appointed as the spokesperson for a programme to be shown on "Animal World" channel (sorry, never heard of this channel or programme so don't know the exact name).
From 11 Jan 08, 56 will be the spokesperson for this new programme "Animals Winter Sports Meet". Animals with good sports prowess will be selected to pit their skills against the Winter Olympics gold medalists. Besides dubbing for the programme, 56 will also film the publicity clips for this show. The publicity clips will be telecast from 1 Feb 08 and the new show will be broadcasted on Lunar New Year.
Btw, after checking the other forums, I still do not know which country is this channel available in, though most think that it is Hong Kong.
Hey that's good news about the spokesperson deal - thanks exadel. The more exposure the better. Hope it's a program that is widely broadcasted.
I'm so happy that picture of Xiezhi is included in the album. It is a really cool picture of him. Just curious, what is in the DVD?
Ya, I am glad about the spokesperson deal too. More exposure & more money. The programme sounds fun too, having animals competing against humans. I guess they accepted this deal because it suits their athletic image.
Duration of DVD is about 20+ minutes and is the "behind-the-scenes" of 56 working on the Bravo album. I won't go into details so as not to spoil the fun for you when you get to watch the DVD. Oh, btw the DVD is supposed to be included in the regular version only. Somehow in Singapore, our pre-order version is the same as the regular version - the huge one shown on wangyu though our album cover picture is slightly different from the Taiwan version.
WOW, I haven't been to this thread in awhile and it is moving rather quickly.. Thanks to Exadel for all of the lovely pix and news.. It is great to hear that the new album is doing so well... I got all 3 versions so far... I am giving one to my friend to introduce her to 5566...THanks for sharing the details of the shows and DVD Exadel.
The psychic readings sound kind of funny, but I don't really believe in them either... Sometimes I might to some extent if the psychic is one that has a good reputation, but I don't think it is good to believe in everything they say 100%. I agree with Xie Zhi too. I think if you work hard than you can change some of your predestined fate.
By the way, a little off topic, but I had 1-2 dreams about Sam a couple of nights ago.... It was really strange and funny too.. Also,I think Ding Xiao Qin looks sort of like the Mainland actress Zhang Xi(Dicky Cheung's girlfriend) at some angles...What do you guys think??
I just finished watching Full Count online. It was ok... I feel sad that that series has such low ratings though.
Respect other people's opinions and views. If we learn how to do that than all of these fights and arguments will not occur.
