Persistent Dating Rumours about 1989一念間 Back to 1989's Ivy Shao 邵雨薇 and Marcus Chang 張立昂

Rumour has it that Ivy Shao and Marcus Chang Chang, the lead stars of Back to 1989 have been dating since early March. Caught hanging out after work, and photographed/filmed while walking around holding hands and hugging each other, the rumours have been quite persistent. 

Next Taiwan reported the news in March with videos of their so-called date and photos of Marcus with his arm around Ivy shielding her from the rain with an umbrella.

Actually, there's even a timeline of what they did that night according to this report

Other reports have shown them travelling together in the same car all the time...

Ivy Shao is said to already have a boyfriend at present which makes for a juicy gossip magazine report. But other than that, fans have been quite happy about hearing this news and I believe that it's been boosting the show's ratings. The story has already been building towards an exciting climax, but it doesn't hurt to have the lead couple dating either! 

Personally I'm not sure what to believe. From watching their interactions, I tend to think of them as good friends. But that filmed footage does look like a date with some hand-holding...Also, I think sometimes people are capable of hiding their relationships better when they're in the public eye...What do you guys think?

Morning Call 輕晨電 release The Unusual Extension of Dreams tour 「夢的不正常延伸」巡迴演唱會 mini album and tour merchandise

It's been awhile since I wrote about my beloved Morning Call band...And can you believe I still haven't put up my fan meet story about visiting their concert this year? It was such an amazing experience. And I have so many photos...But alas, we'll have to wait until I'm less busy.

Anyway, Morning Call are selling the CD they released while on tour, as well as all the related merchandise (the Morning Call towel and tote bag). I bought all of these when I went to the concert, so I already have everything...but if you missed out, you can now purchase everything here at the Chia Chia Record Store page

Mini Album


Tote Bag

Although I haven't had the time to tell my fan meet story, I'll just talk a little bit about the merchandise. I got the CD signed by all the band including Jasper, and they were all very friendly and super nice to me and the other fans. And if you saw the show at Legacy, Taipei (although this may have happened at other venues too), you could get a free concert poster with your ticket, which the Morning Call members were also happy to sign. So I got a poster signed by them too. It was one of the happiest days of my life. If it doesn't damage the cover of my CD, I'll try to scan the signed album cover and put it up here...or I may take a photo of it and put it here...

Picture Spam: Bromance Asian Fan Meet Tour 愛上哥們亞洲巡迴見面會 as captured by Wow News

These were some of the clearest, nicest pictures from the fan meet as shot by Wow News. I love each and every picture. It almost makes me feel like I'd been to the fan meet myself!

If you enjoy this post, why not also check out the Official Show Biz Stills or the huge Bromance Fan Meet Compilation I did while the event was happening last week?

Magazine Scans: Bromance 愛上哥們 x SPOP 華流 Special Edition Photo cards

When I first saw this, I thought that Megan and Baron were gracing a third magazine cover with special photo cards. I don't know why. Maybe because it seemed like the Jumbo special edition SPOP issues that sometimes come out....Anyway, it turned out that this wasn't a magazine at all...just a collector's box with photo cards and a giant framed photo that you could prop up on an easel. Still the pictures are pretty, so I've scanned them and put them up here for your enjoyment :) 

If you want to post them anywhere else, please link back to this blog!
