Rumors had swirled beforehand that Zhou would be announcing her engagement to actor Archie Kao at Wednesday's concert in Hangzhou, the capital of China's eastern province of Zhejiang. But after she sang, she went backstage to change her outfit and reappeared in an ivory Chanel wedding gown, holding a bouquet.

China and South Korea Sign Co-Production and Import Deal

6 July 2014 10:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong – China and South Korea have signed a film co-production agreement that was described as a “landmark” by officials.

The deal was signed by China’s Cai Fuchao, director of the State Administration of Film Radio and television (Sarft), and South Korea’s minister of culture Yoon Rin-ryong following a two-day visit to South Korea by China’s president Xi Jinping.

The agreement follows a memorandum of understanding signed by the two countries in June last year. But it may fall short of a full scale co-production treaty, which both China and South Korea have with other countries.

Instead the new pact appears to focus on allowing South Korean films to avoid China’s import quota system.

“South Korea-China co-productions, once recognized as China’s home-grown films, can bypass China’s limitations on foreign movie imports, so the pact would facilitate the South Korean film industry’s advance into the Chinese film market, »

Korean ‘Star’ Shines in China’s Political, Online Firmaments

20 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hong Kong – A South Korean TV drama “My Love From The Star” (literal translation ‘You Who Came From The Stars’) has become a knockout hit in China.

And despite its whimsical plot and slick, inoffensive presentation it has sparked a string of controversies along the way.

The show features Kim Soo-hyun as an alien trapped on earth for 400 years, but who passes as a near perfect specimen of the human male and in the present day works as a somewhat cynical college professor. Inconceivably, he becomes romantically linked to a beautiful, but obnoxious pop-star/actress, played by Gianna Jun, Korea’s most glamorous movie star.

“Star” played in Korea twice weekly on Sbs for 21 episodes from December 2013 to Feb this year and was a smash ratings winner. Its final, extra, episode scored a 28% rating, according to Agb Nielsen. The show was also licensed for Chinese broadcast, for what is »
