There's a brief image of XZ in a black suit here. Anyone know's if it's recent? He looks really good here.
Thanks for the link. I'm pretty sure the clip of Xiezhi is from 2008 when he gave a speech at an university. His hair is the really short cut he had when he was promoting the Bravo album.
Anyways, saw this poll in the TTV forum asking if 5566 comes out with a new album, will you buy it?
I really hope it means that they will come out with one soon!
Yes, it was from year 2008 when he gave a speech at an university. It was also during the time when the press was rife with news about his breakup with DXQ and his mother's blog. If you are interested, there are 2 short clips of that event:
Btw, I think most polls by the TV stations are for fun so I don't think that the result will have any impact on whether 5566 will come out with a new album. Nevertheless, I hope Warner will pay attention to it and have some concrete plans for them.
Agree that both Xiezhi and Renfu are great singers. Xiezhi's performances at BWDGX managed to change some people's negative opinion of 5566. Of course, the emergence of newer and weaker boybands also made people realise that 5566 does have substance. Wonder if Renfu will go on BWDGX to show that he can really sing.
Well, time flies and just realised that this year is coming to an end soon. Wonder if 5566 is slated for any shows to usher in the new year ... both Countdown and Lunar New year.
Hey-good news! Read on Baidu and another forum that Xiezhi will be filming in
魔女18号. I can't wait to see Xiezhi and Shaowei together!
Yeah- and I know- time flies- I hope 5566 will participate in more Lunar New Year/New Year shows this year. Their participation in this year's BWDGX special made it by far the most entertaining New Year's Special this year.
Yes, today's news confirmed that xiezhi is acting in 魔女18号. Well, I did not watch this show at all but it sounds like ZQMTX in that new characters are introduced now so I can probably treat it like a new show and not bother about the earlier episodes. And xiezhi appears during the theme song in today's episode 60 and you can see his cute chef outfit here: http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kz=635886313
Wonder how many episodes will he act in? Read from baidu that this show is expected to last about 80 episodes, or would they decide only after checking the ratings? But weekly ratings for 魔女18号 usually hovers around 1 plus.
Btw, there is also news today that RF and JQ are hosting a new game show together to be aired in September. So, looks like Xiezhi is focusing on acting, RF hosting and SW will probably spend more time on his bread shop. Luckily MZ comes from a wealthy family so he doesn't need to worry too much about his showbiz career.
Thanks for the news exadel and bonniec1.
I can't wait to see the show.
Thanks hotasuki for the GGBBM links.
I wonder what kind of gameshow is RF and JQ going to host???
I really miss those days where 5566 always get together to host shows or those BTS about them.
Tomorrow Singapore's Starhub cable channel 56 will be showing the BWXXT ep where XZ appear in in april this year.
Yeah- I really miss 5566 hosting together. SNTGD was such a great show. Actually all of their game shows were good. I feel like I missed out on a lot since I only found out/starting watching Xiezhi and 5566 in 2007, but at least the episodes are pretty complete on Tudou and Baidu. I was so glad to be able to order the fudai that Jungiery was selling last year because it is so hard to get 5566 collector's items in Toronto, even on ebay.
Anyways, I'm really looking forward to Xiezhi's appearance in 魔女18号 starting next week. He is so cool + cute in his chef outfit! I haven't watched the show, but I guess 1+ is an average rating?

Saw this piece of news today implying that Xiezhi had indirectly admitted to his relationship with Zhou Youting: http://udn.com/NEWS/ENTERTAINMENT/ENT1/5114693.shtml
Though I still do not like her very much based on impressions from news reports about her, but I am still happy for him as long as he is happy. Afterall, we really do not know these people at all but can only guess their characters from what we see & read which may not be accurate.
Actually, I am more interested in the show that he and Renfu are on, hope it will be telecast soon. Actually, I would expect Xiezhi to go on a show with Shaowei instead since they have "something in common" as they are in the same drama 魔女18号. But guess Xiezhi & Renfu are invited to this show since both are good friends with the host, Zheng GuoCheng.
Xiezhi had mentioned on his blog that his episodes of 魔女18号 will be shown from around 10 Sep (next week). Btw, ZQMTX had ended and the new settv 8pm show started yesterday. I am glad ZQMTX has ended so that Xiezhi will not be competing for ratings against a show that he had acted in.
Oh yes, Xiezhi looks so charming in his chef uniform. Btw, Yurong seems to have a bit part in 魔女18号 as well.

Thanks, exadel for the update. Well - as long as he is happy. I guess we'll see what his expression is like when the show airs.
Yeah- I was thinking that he would appear with Shaowei first since they will be in the same series- but I am looking forward to seeing this interview too since it's been a long time since members of 5566 have appeared together in a Taiwanese show (not counting the fundraising event of course).
I am counting down till the 10th!

I was wondering what did they have in the fudai???
Ya! i saw the pics posted in another forum!!! So shuai!!!
I'm waiting for XZ's part of MN18H to air too!!!
Ya. I'm happy for him to. But, base on the previous records of ZYT, i really really really hope that it will not happen on XZ.
What show is XZ and RF going to appear???
Yey!!! Luckily it ended already!!! I've seen a few clips of the show an some of the cast in ZQMTX did appear in the new 8PM show.
Exadel, do you mind giving me the surchpage of MN18H in tudou or the dvd.dianping9 so that i won't trouble you to post up the eps here?? Thanks.
The host (ZGC) asked XZ "ZYT & DXQ, which is the secret relationship that cannot be revealed?" At first, XZ tried to evade the question but eventually said that both are his very good friends. ZGC then asked "so you do not have a girlfriend now?" XZ was quiet for about 7 seconds and finally said "I do have a very good friend all along." So indirectly admitting to his relationship with ZYT.
XZ and RF went on this show 「一袋女皇」and both have some links with ZGC. RF hosted「冒險奇兵」with ZGC whereas XZ knew him from the time he was in the singing competition. XZ often seek advice from ZGC on how to tell jokes and so they had a good relationship.
Though XZ seldom talk to the press about his relationships but he find it difficult not to answer his buddy's questions. XZ lamented "why must public figures talk about their private lives, they should be more concerned about when am I going to retire from showbiz instead". After XZ "admitted" to his relationship with ZYT, ZGC then asked "Are you frustrated with your mom for always interfering in your love-life, just answer yes or no". XZ tried to evade the question again but then said "life is full of frustrations so of course i am frustrated."
When asked about this, ZYT's manager said "he may not be talking about ZYT. Anyway, I have never met XZ" . In the past, her manager had met & spoken to her then boyfriend Ma ZhiXiang many times.
Well, I don't like her manager's reply ... as if XZ is using ZYT to get news. If her manager does not want to say anything or does not know anything, he can simply say - no comments or they don't probe into their star's private lives.
Here's the tudou link to XZ & SW show: http://www.tvtiandi.com/detail/5497.html or http://so.tudou.com/isearch/%E9%AD%9...B318%E5%8F%B7/

Surprise, surprise! Xiezhi did reply to his fan's messages on the UFOTown. Haha, he must have just learnt how to use the reply function and spent a day replying to the messages.
The one reply that got me excited is ... he confirmed that he will be filming a show in China but the date of filming is yet to be fixed. He is looking forward to this as he liked the script very much.
Ok, I shall stop criticising Sun Zhong now that it is proven he does have plans for XZ Perhaps they had discussed his future and decided that XZ concentrate on acting and taking on more diverse roles from more varied directors/production teams.
Oh btw, XZ also replied that he did not pierce his ears so the earrings he wore for 魔女18号 are clip-ons which he bought specially for this show. Wonder why the actors/actresses had to buy their own clothes/accessories for their shows. Always thought that such things should be sponsored.
Anyway, don't be too bothered about the manager's reply. Taiwanese media are well known to write what they want to by breaking up what the person says and piecing them together. also only presenting only one side of a story about what 1 person say while interviewing another so that they can 'trap' them into saying things they want to hear.
Thanks for the translation, exadel. I thought the answer was kind of vague so I guess we won't know for sure unless he openly admits it. Doesn't matter anyways- as long as he is happy.
Yeah- I was surprised that Xiezhi replied to the ufotown messages too. I guess he must read what is posted on websites because I think some fans in the Baidu forum were complaining that he doesn't reply to messages, unlike Shaowei who replied a few times. The ufotown site is for fans in China only I believe. Too bad- it would have been nice if we could leave messages on it for him. I'm glad that he confirmed that he will be filming in another series.
Oh pat/clare- I did (surprisingly) get a lot of Xiezhi stuff in my fudai from last year. What I got was: the T-shirt with the heart shaped collage of the J-stars, J-star mousepad, Xiezhi necklace, Xiezhi picture, Mojian flashcard, 5566 folders, 5566 cellphone accessory, 5566 key chain, 5566 sticky notepad, 7 Flowers mirror, Bravo passport (the one in the album), 5566 bookmarks. The cost of the postage was almost the same cost of the fudai, but it was worth it. It took a lot of emails to convince them to send it to Toronto!
Yes, Xiezhi did not mention names so he could be referring to DXQ or ZYT or even someone else. Whoever that person is, I am just glad that he has a girlfriend. Xiezhi yearns for marriage so I am happy that he has someone to share his life with, which is better than reading about him nursing a broken heart at home.
I used to think that he and DXQ faked their breakup or were just going through a bad patch, since DXQ does not talk about Xiezhi or her love life at all on shows despite what the press had written about her. However, I changed my mind after XZ & ZYT were photographed together because I don't think Xiezhi will be close to another female friend if he is still attached. Oh well, just like what bonnie said, "Doesn't matter anyways- as long as he is happy."
Saw these photos from baidu, http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kz=639527475 and http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kz=639532468 Haha, Xiezhi must be trying to act shuai in that photo and SW as usual trying to act cute.
And here are photos of RF and JQ at the press conference few days back to introduce their new show: http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kz=638410182
