By on November 15th, 2012 | Hong Kong Entertainment

Linda Chung Album Love Love Love

Yesterday Linda Chung released her first album since joining record label Stars Shine. This time Linda is personally responsible for the costumes and album’s concept. She said: “The theme this time is happiness, so I especially painted my fingernails different colors and there is a large ‘heart’ drawn on my hand. I drew the heart myself!”

Linda frankly expressed she had gone through some changes in her mentality. She is much more active and laid back compared to the past. She said: “This change has increased my self-confidence, I’m now more proactive and positive. I hope this will be able to bring positive energy to everyone!” Her new album entitled Love Love Love continues to focus on love songs and the album title coincidentally came from the fact that Linda is used to writing the word “love” three times to end her letters.

Ha Ji Won promised that she would put the profits from her book “Right This Moment” to good use.

On November 6, Ha Ji Won attended the publication event for her book in Seoul.

She said, “I was asked five or six times to write a book. I turned the offers down, because I thought I wasn′t that experienced. My family cheered me on. They supported me, saying, ′You′ve worked hard′ or ′You did your best,′ and that′s how I decided to publish the book.”

“I thought back to when I made my debut 13 years ago, and I realized I could tell like a big sister to those who want to act what I learned as an actress, how I didn′t despair even after failing to pass over 100 auditions and my own know-hows. That′s why I started. In the end, though, I was the one who gained more strength while writing the book.”

Ha Ji Won′s essay was published on October 30 with the subtitle, Manual to a Happy Dream. The actress wrote the book with all her sincerity for the last two years.

Right This Moment starts with how Ha Ji Won dreamed of becoming an actress but didn′t dare tell anyone about it, afraid she would be scoffed by others. It then continues to tell about how she was determined to succeed even after failing to pass over 100 auditions, how she used to imitate everything senior Ahn Sung Ki did in order to fit in and which piece helped her learn the fun of acting.

By on November 7th, 2012 | Hong Kong Entertainment

The model finally breaks her silence on divorce rumours with Leon Lai for the first time during a radio interview hosted by longtime good friend, Vanessa Yeung.

Gaile admitted that she did receive lavish gifts such as a sports car from ex-husband Leon, but sold it away due to her “amateur driving skills”.

“We gave each other gifts too. I bought him [Leon] a six-figure sum whisky for his birthday,” she added.
Refuting talks that she obtained a portion of Leon’s assets, worth an estimated HK$200 million (S$30 million), the 32-year-old said that she only received “a small sum of settlement that is not even near HK$10 million (S$1.5 million)”.
The model stressed that their split was not due to a third party, indirectly dismissing earlier rumours of Leon and Gaile’s newfound romance with Hong Kong TVB actress Kate Tsui and New Zealander friend, Cuz respectively.
She commented, “I wish I can show everyone the divorce papers. Not all relationships end because of scandals and mistakes. There are also instances when it just does not work out.”
Gaile also denied pregnancy and miscarriage rumours which was speculated as the main reason behind the divorce.
She clarified that the divorce statement was made several months before the official announcement last month.

“Both of us made the decision [divorce]. I do not hate him and have no hard feelings against him. We will still care for each other now,” she told Vanessa.
