1st album - Unprecedented 破天荒
Finishing first in the first season of the Taiwan talent competition show "Super Idol", up-and-coming singer Zhang Yun Jing was one of the most eye-catching newcomers of 2008. Originally a graphic designer, Yun Jing has won acclaim for the poster design of Taiwan movie Beautiful Crazy, and now she is living the dreams of many in her new adventure as a rising pop star. Yun Jing's debut album Unprecedented released May 2009 features 10 songs, including her CTS idol drama Knock Knock Loving You opening and ending theme songs ("You Fly" and "Black Dress", respectively), and a bonus track.

2nd album - The Opposite Me 相反的我 (to be released 7/9!)
The champion of the inaugural season of Super Idol, Taiwan singer Zhang Yun Jing was surprisingly left out in the nominations for Golden Melody's Best Newcomer award. But that didn't deter her from marching forward in her fledging Mando-pop career. In fact, Jing is waving goodbye to her old image with her second album, showing a rebellious side previously unseen of her. The major style in this album is one of British rock, and the production crew consists of such top musicians as Chen Wei, Jim Lee, Adia, Mayday's Stone, Peggy Hsu, Showan, and Japanese-American musician Skot Suyama. The album's warm-up single "Gone Bad" is already an online hit, and the titular main plug "The Opposite Me" is Jing's first composition selected from almost a hundred of demos she recorded!*

Interesting facts: Zhang Yun Jing was actually eliminated as a contestant when she forgot the lyrics to the song 白月光/Moonlight. But she came back in the 敗部復活賽 or the part of the show where eliminated contestants try to come back to the competition. And Zhang Yun Jing accomplished such a feat by singing 白月光 again (not forgetting the lyrics this time) and others.

MV preview of Black Dress (English subbed)



This is a version with just the piano instrumental and Jing's singing.
The full MV will be coming out on Channel V on 4/27 clapclap
I read from the news that the director got 168 black skirts/dresses and set fire to all of them.

Also a recent picture
Zhang Yun Jing helped a singing group in the same company as her (EMI Golden Typhoon) in their promotional pics. I think they're called Flying Fish, translated from 青鳥飛魚. something like that

Full MV for Black Dress

There are captions in the front and near the end to explain the whole setting of the MV
常常有人說 兩個女孩之間的情感
People often say that between two girls,
比一粒沙細微 比一整個世界複雜
there is a more complicated array of emotions
因為我們是女孩
because we are girls
很容易吵架 很容易和好
it is easy to argue, easy to make up again
我們一起編織對於愛情的懵懂
Together we weave together the hard to understand parts that make up love
然後約好要一起告別青春
and then we say goodbye to our youth
希望我們的小孩跟我們一樣
hoping that our children will become like us
互相分享生命中所有的樂與苦
also sharing life's joy and pain together
我們幫對方剪斷紛擾的困惑
we help each other cut off the scattered, troublesome parts of confusion (?)

有你的支持 我們永遠可以重新開始
with your support, we will always be able to start again anew
我們的內心只有對方懂
our inner feelings can only be understood between us
我們有相同的愛好
we have the same interests

(I think this line refers to the cross-dressing ppl :blink: or probably to everyone in general )
我們兩人永遠扮演著不同的角色
The two of us forever act as different characters
不管這個世界怎麼評論我們
It doesn't matter who judges us
只有你最暸解我的美
Only you understand the most of my beauty

我只有一個你
I only have one you
一個永遠與我作伴
A friend to accompany me till forever
也永遠與我作對的你
a pair to last forever (?)


Personal feelings: quite touching
i think these captions are meant to go with the background scenes of the mv
and the song's lyrics are supposed to relate to Zhang Yun Jing, herself

It's a song of friendship, the deep kind...and being your true self
perhaps some people might be irked a little by the (i don't know what to call them) people who dress in dresses and probably are guys
but this song is just about having someone who accepts who you are and loves you for that
quite deep indeed ^^

I would say my favorite scene from the MV would be of the burning dresses and Jing standing among them. It's a silent kind of motivation.

some caps here

張芸京's new album is out clapclap

I've listened to all 10 songs (I'll put the list description up later) and all 10 of them are really good, at least in my opinion. They really show off Jing's vocals and all.

another point
she has another MV out called 破天荒/(translation: something about going beyond or breaking loose from expectation)
she's changing into different characters as if going beyond the audience's expectations
this song was written by 怪獸 from 五月天 or Mayday


credit MV goes to r22211133 and Channel V

at first i thought that Jing's voice was too quiet for this song and didn't have enough power

but after you listen to the song one or two times, there's this sort of inspiring feeling that comes from Jing's voice and the accompanying music
it cheers you up in a way

last note: of the many characters Jing becomes in this MV, she wears a long hair wig and all that

netizens had this whole stir because she wore this wig and "dressed up like a girl"
but then again she IS a GIRL :noclue
a really pretty girl too

haha but i would think that her personality suits her short hair better

aha I sort of thought the same thing when I first saw her on YLBFB 100% Entertainment
I was like: "who is this?"
originally i was watching the video for some other singer, but then my focus totally turned to Zhang Yun Jing haha


here's some new pics from Jing's upcoming MV for 讓我照顧你 [Let Me Take Care of You]
It's supposed to be a love triangle thingy like a drama or whatever
Plot: The three of them (Jing, QiLing from Flying Fish a.k.a the guy in the yellow shirt, and Li Hui Qi the other girl) are really close friends. QiLing likes Jing for her outgoing nature, but LHQ likes QiLing because he's really caring towards everyone. I don't know how the MV will turn out, but it seems exciting from the released pics so far.

During the filming of this MV, Jing had a scene where she had to hit QL. But she hit him too hard and so they had to delay filming for QL's jaw to swell down. This sort of reminds me of Meteor Garden (the taiwanese version). There was similar news where Barbie Hsu had to hit Jerry Yan, but then she hit him so hard that he didn't talk to her the rest of the day or whatnot. :loool:

sadly however I didn't upload the pictures in chronological order. so the more recent pics of Jing are mostly in the back pages aiya

I've been reading this particular site about Jing. So far this is the only site that post all in english. Am glad of it.. :thumbsup

About the previous posts, hmm, I think many would have the same thought and opinion about Jing's gender. But I have never thought she was guy (i guess i'm weird)... maybe because of her small body frame. The first time I saw her was on 100% entertainment news and the volume of my tv was on mute mode. Maybe that's how I got away with the wrong judgement on Jing... haha.

Anyways, am glad that minchong92 have been posting updates about Jing in english all these while. This site is where I first saw Jing's MV. There are too many websites that has Jing's story and info but very limited in english.

With regards to minchong92's post on the new MV of Jing, I can't wait to see the MV... haha. It's really interesting to see Jing acting.

By the way, does anyone knows that Jing was being considered to appear in Love or Bread where the main casts are Da S (Barbie Hsu) and Xiao Zhong (Chen Yuan Chang). But after that, there's no update about it.. I guess it's just a news, nothing much.

Also, there was this article that said there will be a new taiwan drama series titled 'San Bao Mei' and GTV was asked whether are they going to consider to ask Jing to play the role of 'San Bao Mei'. In the end, they said they wanted to get a more experienced actress as Jing is still a newcomer to the entertainment industry.

( Pls correct me if i got the facts wrong)

Before I "discovered" Jing, I was actually just about to give up Taiwanese entertainment for a while because none of the new debut singers were that unique. When I went to Taiwan, I bought a magazine and the cover had Jing on it. I was sort of confused as to whether she was a guy or not. But I saw the word 她 (she) on the interview section and got even more confused. Then I gave the magazine to a friend and forgot all about it...until a random youtubing event
I saw her again on YLBFB and then watched some of her performance clips on Super Idol.

Then it was what some ppl may call "obsession"? haha nah, I just really find Zhang Yun Jing's stage presence really fascinating and her voice is really clean and bright. Her voice isn't very girly and it's not that guyish either haha, it's like in the middle. For the new year, she had a duet with Qing Feng, the lead singer for Sodagreen. They sang Blue Eyes (the original singer was Angela Zhang) and for me, it's a whole new kind of duet. Because QF's voice is quite high-pitched for a guy and it's somewhat yodely while Jing's voice is clean and go high or low. For me, the duet really is one of the best that I've seen in Taiwanese music. Perhaps it's not the best vocally-wise (but it's up there), but it's really fresh and rejuvenating XD
The two of them are a really cool pair and funny at the same time
i shouldn't spazz so much though because I feel that I'm typing so much gibberish

here's the video (english subbed)

the holding hand part is subtly hilarious
Jing: "can I hold your hand?"
QF: "Sure...but why do you seem more like the guy?" :loool:

By the way, does anyone knows that Jing was being considered to appear in Love or Bread where the main casts are Da S (Barbie Hsu) and Xiao Zhong (Chen Yuan Chang). But after that, there's no update about it.. I guess it's just a news, nothing much.

Also, there was this article that said there will be a new taiwan drama series titled 'San Bao Mei' and GTV was asked whether are they going to consider to ask Jing to play the role of 'San Bao Mei'. In the end, they said they wanted to get a more experienced actress as Jing is still a newcomer to the entertainment industry.

( Pls correct me if i got the facts wrong)


Yeah I saw those two articles and they're the only articles on Jing in Asianfanatics sadly :(.
Most of the idol dramas for GTV or SETTV usually bring up random/popular singers or actors/actresses to get more news for their drama. I don't think Jing was considered for the role in Love or Bread that seriously. But I heard that her manager was also managing that drama and was somewhat considering her. But that also conflicted with Jing and Super Idol because Super Idol is on the channel SETTV while Love or Bread airs on GTV. The two channels are sort of rivals so Jing being casted on Love or Bread would've been really complicated. I think Barbie was considered slightly but her name is just in the article to make news I guess.
The two main people who ended up being casted for Love or Bread were Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng (Cheng Yun Chang). The drama ended a few months ago.
San Bao Mei was the same thing I think. The two people who ended up being casted for that were Nicholas Teo and Amber Kuo, I think. Should be...

But I think Jing wants to further her singing career before she goes into acting. But if she ever did go into acting, according to an interview (I'll post that later), she doesn't want to be the lead. She wants to be the side character who beats up the bad guys who treat other girls badly or whatever. haha

Spoiler

pictures pictures pictures
This is Jing when she first appeared on TV and Super Idol.
The host was like: "Are you...?" haha
Posted Image
Jing sang pretty good, but then two judges pressed two X's. Technically only one did and the other judge did because he wanted to say something good about Jing and the host never asked the judges who didn't press the X's xD.

compare the first picture to Jing now
Posted Image
i wouldn't say big difference, but vocally-wise Jing has improved a lot.

and then a cracktastic photo of Jing...the dog :thumbsup

hooray good job to Jing, she deserves this
For Jing to get such good results for her first album and after 10 long months from her winning Super Idol, this shows that she will be a singer to be watched and heard from now on
Her album also got #1 on the 5music and Channel V charts
hopefully she can keep this up when all the other big name artists release their albums later this month and next month :thumbsup

During the filming of this MV, Jing had a scene where she had to hit QL. But she hit him too hard and so they had to delay filming for QL's jaw to swell down. This sort of reminds me of Meteor Garden (the taiwanese version). There was similar news where Barbie Hsu had to hit Jerry Yan, but then she hit him so hard that he didn't talk to her the rest of the day or whatnot. :loool:


They are so cute together. clapclap I hope Qiling and her get more collabs in the future even though they're kind of different musically.

Do you mean QingFeng of Sodagreen or QiLing of Flying Fish? I sort of lols at both of the guys' interactions with Jing. She's so manly towards both of them, like slap shoulder manly. haha
And that dance up there that I posted some weeks ago, that dance comes from Flying Fish's song, Weird Girl. I lol'ed even harder at that.
On the other hand, Jing seemed really happy to duet with QingFeng. She smiled really big throughout the entire duet.

can someone message me the download link 2 black dress


um, I would recommend that you not ask here. Perhaps you could message me or something, but I'll probably give you a two or three minute snippet. There are sites that you can download it without a virus, but...

I already ordered my album through my grandma :loool:
if my grandma can't find it or it's sold out :wave: , I'll probably buy it here in the States (where it's more expensive :down)

just don't ask here for download links please

I would be happy to give you the MV file though :)

there are a lot of streaming sites too where you can listen to the whole song and the other songs on her album (check youtube too) clapclap

nothing much new on Jing yet

But I heard she will be on 5/26 Tuesday's 100% Entertainment. The whole show will probably be centering around her.

Jing has started to have some signing events for her CD. She has already held two events, one in Taichung and one in Taoyuan.
Posted Image
Another big one is coming up 5/30 this Saturday in XiMenDing, Taipei.

For me, that's across the Pacific Ocean. Too far for me to go :(

however an autographed version of her album has been released on YesAsia :thumbsup

Some other news on Jing: she has been chosen to advertise the new Samsung mp3 player

Posted Image

shuai shuai; hoping that they'll film a commercial with Jing in it :)



random funny pic coming up next

Zhang Yun Jing, are you hungry? :loool:

never mind I probably got that wrong
100% Entertainment will be a live show tomorrow, so Jing will probably go on for a few minutes to promote her album

There is one confirmed date for Jing to appear on TV
On 5/31 Sunday, she will be on 沈春華Live Show, it's an interview thing where the guests talk about themselves :) somewhat like the Chinese Oprah
Jing will appear with her mom and another contestant, Li Ning, from Super Idol Season 3 and that contestant's mother
Posted Image
credits as tagged
as you can notice, Jing and Li Ning have something in common
They both can pass off as really hot guys :loool:
nah...they just don't like to wear dresses, skirts and other girly things

side topic: from some fans' opinions, some don't understand why Jing doesn't get the whole interview to herself
They don't have to pull in another person who dresses like Jing to further emphasize why Jing is different from other female artistes...
Furthermore, Li Ning was already eliminated from Super Idol 3 weeks ago and the 敗部復活賽/Wild Card part of the competition hasn't even been started (even though potential wild cards have already been getting ready for it)

I would think since right now is Jing's album promotion period, the show only focusing on her would be more beneficial towards Jing
personally, I have seen some Li Ning's performances (her first performance was the best, in my opinion). She's not as vocally strong as Jing and her stage presence is sometimes somewhat boring, but she has her own strong points such as her work ethic to improve and will to practice. Still, the show producers should have thought first before asking Li Ning to come. Li Ning still has a long way to go and she's only 16 (so much time for her to get better). Plus Super Idol 3 isn't even over! To give Li Ning more exposure would be sort of unfair to the other contestants...
Spoiler


after that long rambling, I would have to conclude that this interview is still something to look forward to, even with Li Ning. They're probably going to talk how and why they are who they are now and etc. Quite interesting because the two of them are bringing in a whole new wave of entertainers, people who go beyond the norm in appearance and stage presence.
There hasn't been a tomboyish (or androgynous, you could say) singer in Taiwanese entertainment for a long time. Or you could say, there hasn't been one that has appealed to the general public for a long time.

from a news article: the host of this interview show at first thought these two were long-lost brothers
Posted Image
i don't know if that is supposed to be funny or whether I should go -_-

after this, I have a tiny hope that perhaps if Li Ning goes back on Super Idol, she and Jing can try to collaborate on something

Last Saturday on 5/16, Jing went back to Super Idol 3 to promote her album. She is the first of Season 1 to have an album. After all, she was the winner. :)

Besides being a guest judge, she also dueted with another contestant (who is currently the highest in popularity votes like Ah Jing was in Season 1)
They sang Blue Eyes (the duet Jing sang with QingFeng), but this time Jing had to sing the deeper part. I would say this duet was pretty good, even though the contestant's voice is really high in pitch and somewhat shaky at times. If you download the mp3 file and listen to it a few times, the duet gets stuck in your head xD and gets as addicting as the duet QF and Jing sang

here it is (already 10,000 + views)

Jing had the opportunity to promote her songs at the end of the show

thanks to 阿Ben who gave his winning opportunity to Jing

Then it was what some ppl may call "obsession"? haha nah, I just really find Zhang Yun Jing's stage presence really fascinating and her voice is really clean and bright.


Haha... i understand that "obsession" thingy. Actually i saw Jing's 1st appearance was on 100% Entertainment News but at that time i didn't know who she was and don't even know a single info about her. I was wondering why the media focused on her so much. Hmm,i cannot recall anything i heard or saw about her last year. I think there's a news where Harlem Yu (cannot remember which artiste was with her at that time) was with her while she was in the recording studio.. hmm, isn't it??
Spoiler


Jing's appearance on Azio @ Superstar was the one that really caught my attention. It was only aired this month on 12/5/2009 on Astro channel 301. (Isn't that very backdated?? :thumbdown ). I remembered seeing her duetting with Yuming singing "Fan Dao Zhe Lian". That scene was abit funny and where the part they hold hands, I don't know whether those who saw that part paid attention to one of her fellow super idol member, the guy who's sitting back there... he's reaction was tensed up... don't why he gave such a 'king' expression (u know how taiwanese used to describe when a situation is very tense) :loool:
Since then i'm quite into Jing... especially her songs, music talents, and her unique vocal. I agree with minchong92 that her vocals now has improved alot... more than alot actually..
Malaysia's now still airing Super Idols Season 1 on their local tv station. There's still alot more episodes i think..So those who still wana catch Jing in the competition, you can still watch it on Malaysia's local channel 8tv, every saturdays @ 5pm.


Previously i didn't know that Jing had a duet with Qing Feng... i was wondering why there's news about them... i thought they were comparing as they had found a so called 'guy' version of Qing Feng.. :tricky: Sorry~

Hmm, what event was this, where both Jing and Qing Feng sang a duet??

Spoiler
:crying:


Regarding the Music Chart. G-Music is based in Taiwan is it?? so far i've watch Mandarin Music On Demand 2009 but Jing's song was not featured there....


Posted Image
Hmm, is this on Genius Go Go Go?? is this recorded last yr or recently?? i didn't catch this episode.. or i missed it... or maybe it have not even aired yet in my country.. the tv programs here are abit slow.. haih..

I think that news came about in the summer/fall, this one right?
credit to favoritejing

This was when she recorded Black Dress and the guy next to her is Anson Hu, her senior who wrote the song for her specifically.
Jing wasn't on television that much last year, probably because of the Super Idol top 10 concerts and the promotion events they had to do. But I think she was on the majority of shows that the top 10 had to appear such as 100% Entertainment, Azio, and some other ones (I think Million Star contestants got more tv programs to appear on; but now that's all changing)

Jing's appearance on Azio @ Superstar was the one that really caught my attention. It was only aired this month on 12/5/2009 on Astro channel 301. (Isn't that very backdated?? n_thumbdown.gif ). I remembered seeing her duetting with Yuming singing "Fan Dao Zhe Lian". That scene was abit funny and where the part they hold hands, I don't know whether those who saw that part paid attention to one of her fellow super idol member, the guy who's sitting back there... he's reaction was tensed up... don't why he gave such a 'king' expression (u know how taiwanese used to describe when a situation is very tense) loool.gif


haha, I remember that. It's really rare when contestants from "rival" singing competitions get collaborate. It was so funny though when they switched their parts and Jing sang the lower part and Yuming sang the falsetto. I cracked up :loool: especially at Weihao's (the guy in the glasses) reaction to everything; he's so dramatic... In my opinion, the holding hands wasn't that weird. It was just really funny; Jing almost starting laughing too hard to finish the duet. :D
I think that show aired around November of 2008. I guess that is a little late to air the show in May, considering Super Idol EP promotions are over already. But it gets to show off Jing and maybe more ppl will go and buy her album. clapclap
I want to watch Jing on tv. But the closest I can get is connecting my laptop to the tv XD

Previously i didn't know that Jing had a duet with Qing Feng... i was wondering why there's news about them... i thought they were comparing as they had found a so called 'guy' version of Qing Feng.. 1.gif Sorry~

Hmm, what event was this, where both Jing and Qing Feng sang a duet??

Sorry for asking this... i missed out alot of the chinese entertainment. And the tv programs here are not very updated, plus i rarely go online to do my homework (search for updated news), plus the worst part of all, i can't read chinese...

weeping.gif


haha it's okay. Ask as much as you want, I just want someone to talk to about Jing :loool:
I feel a little overenthusiastic at times about this haha, perhaps it is obsession...

Qing Feng and Jing sang for the SETTV New Year's Concert. Before they sang their duet, Jing also sang some other songs that she had performed before on Super Idol. She also did this rock duet thing with one of the judges, Huang Guo Lun. But in my opinion, it wasn't as good. Huang Guo Lun's a little old for the rock thing XD no offense to him... He's a good songwriter and judge and he's funny too. But I don't think the singing english rock songs does it for him.

Regarding the Music Chart. G-Music is based in Taiwan is it?? so far i've watch Mandarin Music On Demand 2009 but Jing's song was not featured there....


Hmm, is this on Genius Go Go Go?? is this recorded last yr or recently?? i didn't catch this episode.. or i missed it... or maybe it have not even aired yet in my country.. the tv programs here are abit slow.. haih..


Yeah, the G-Music chart is based in Taiwan. I heard that the radio stations in Singapore and Malaysia have somewhat begun to air Jing's Black Dress. I'm hoping that her album will sell well enough for her to be able to go out of Taiwan to promote her album. :)
And the moving gif of Jing's hair XD was from an episode of Go Go Go. It aired in Taiwan around November too I think. You can watch it on Youtube. here's the link to the first part of the episode

some recent pics (quite recent in fact from yesterday :D)

some more news: yesterday 5/26, Golden Typhoon EMI held a celebration/news conference for Jing. I think her album has done really well, better than other new artists currently debuting in Taiwan, in just the two weeks that it has been out. Jing said that now her company is considering to film 3 more MVs for her (besides the ones for Black Dress, Unprecedented, and Let Me Take Care of You). That's really exciting clapclap

To get ready for going abroad, Jing got a new passport. She hasn't traveled abroad before. Her company is already planning for her to go to Hong Kong and Szechuan, China to promote her album.

yay more opportunities for Jing to known worldwide
she already has a growing fanbase in Hong Kong, China, and Singapore
and then there's the few of us in the States and other places

Yea, that's the one... haha. Thanks. Oh my goodness, what made me recall it was Harlem?!! Ah.. now i remembered, i saw Jing on Million Star ('Bai Wan Da Ke Xing' - 百萬大歌星). If i'm not wrong again ^_^* , Harlem jokingly teased her by singing Jolin's song, with part of the lyrics - 'Lao shu, Lao Hu, sa sa fen bu ching choo'. That was my another regret because i didn't watch that episode from the start till the end :STUPID . Was busy catching up my sleep..haha. When i woke up,i saw part of it, around 5 mins then went away from the tv to do something else. My sister and mum nicely got to watch the whole episode of it. I think i was not interested in that program bcoz i didn't who Jing was at that time. :phew:


I think Malaysians' definitely begining to know more and will want to know more about Jing because the local tv station is currently airing Super Idol season 1. So now not only the Malaysian chinese get to the see the program but also the non chinese will also get to see it, as well as the non satelit tv subscribers.

Hmm, speaking about her album, i think it's not yet made available here in Malaysia. I've gone to the record shops but there's no sign of her album :down , not even the Super Idol EP (maybe the EP's only available in Taiwan... is it?) I wonder what's the delay. Unlike Aska Yang (Yang Zhong Wei - from 'Xing Guang Da Dao'),his album was available here once it was released.. but then of coz gota wait for a period of time. I hope Jing's album will be release here too.


haha it's okay. Ask as much as you want, I just want someone to talk to about Jing.
I feel a little overenthusiastic at times about this haha, perhaps it is obsession...


Hi5!! Haha.. same here too. Been wanting to know more about Jing but don't know where to search about her since most of the website from Taiwan is in chinese... again... :unsure:


Haha, agree that Huang Guo Lun's abit funny. I like those type of judge.. those who don't give contestant pressure. But sometimes abit pressure is good too. :blush

Yeah, the G-Music chart is based in Taiwan. I heard that the radio stations in Singapore and Malaysia have somewhat begun to air Jing's Black Dress. I'm hoping that her album will sell well enough for her to be able to go out of Taiwan to promote her album. :)


Oh, is it?? I'm not aware of the radio stations..Hmm, i must listen more often.. haha.
Yea, am hoping that she'll be able to come to Malaysia to promote her album.. :yeah but also hope that if she comes,she'll have an autograph session too (they call it 'chien chang hui' = autograph + singing session).
Though i'll be abit phobia, i will definitely try to get her autograph.
(have been to LeeHom's autograph session once or twice - the only artiste that i've ever been to his events here in Malaysia - and promise myself never to attend any more of these kind of events... dangerous) i nearly fainted bcoz felt like lack of oxigen and being squash.. hahaha :loool:

Previously, i think it was quite a few years back, the satelit tv had G-Music chart program and we were able to catch the program on tv (it was Tension - the boyband who were hosting the program.. i think... :tricky: ). But it's no longer on now... hmm, i didn't even notice, guess probably was too busy back in high school.

By the way, thanks alot for the youtube link. Honestly, i seldom watch youtube till now because i'm still using dial-up... (yea, i know that's very outdated..haha). But nowadays, i always browse for Jing's clip on youtube. :blush



some more news: yesterday 5/26, Golden Typhoon EMI held a celebration/news conference for Jing.


Yea, i saw that news on tv on 26/5. I had to watch the repeat to try to catch what the news was about. Haha. Hmm, not bad huh... Hong Kong's market is quite difficult to penetrate but yet she's able to go in... wow!! double yay for her.. :yeah


I wonder is there any official Malaysia based fan club for Jing or not...
The one like LeeHom's Homaniacs....
Do you have Jing's official fan club there??

That's strange...because there's a CD shop around where I live (California, US) and my friend told me that Jing's cd is already there. Compared to the US, Malaysia is so much closer to Taiwan

Hi5!! Haha.. same here too. Been wanting to know more about Jing but don't know where to search about her since most of the website from Taiwan is in chinese... again... :unsure:

There still aren't many sites in english that go into detail about Jing , and no one's created an english forum for Jing either (except this one XD). Jing's Hong Kong and China fans have already created forums. Maybe I'll try experimenting and make one after finals.

haha, I've never been to any signing events before, but I have been to JiuFen, this really thin alley market in Taiwan. People literally squeeze past you and you can smell their sweat and all XD. Now I'm sort of wishing that I was going to Taiwan this year to go to all of Jing's events. It would be worth it even if there were so many people. I want to shake her hand really badly :tricky: haha.

don't worry about your dialup though for these clips :D because these clips are pretty short

part2
her view towards songwriting and love in general
part3
her feelings regarding the way she dresses
part4
her views towards netizens' comments
part5
what celebrities she wants to work with

I don't think any malaysia fan club for Jing has been established yet. But I think there is a group on Facebook that was created by Singapore fans for Jing..
hopefully someone will create something for that
for more people to get to know Jing :thumbsup

more recent updates-here's a translation of an article that was written on the interview that Jing had with Sina (if anyone wants to post this somewhere else, please give translation credit to minchong92)

Exclusive Sina Interview! Zhang Yun Jing is not afraid of paparazzi, but worries getting caught pulling her underwear? Jing talks about love: Being able to hold hands while going out to eat minced meat rice (translation-taiwanese hawker food)

(2009/5/27, Taipei) Zhang Yun Jing, continuing from the momentum of winnning Super Idol and gaining a strong fan base, has released her first album [Unprecedented] which has done very well in such a short time. When interviewed, Jing talked about her feelings about transforming from a normal person to a singer, as if this reality feels just like a dream. When the paparazzi, the fear of many entertainers, was brought up, Jing directly responded by saying that she only fears that they will catch her pulling up her underwear, because such an act is "way too embarrassing."

Album achievements-Zhang Yun Jing: "It feels like a dream!"
From the singing competition to releasing an album, ZYJ feels like she has completed her dream. Releasing her album has given her feelings that she has never experienced before. She said: "When the singing competition started, I was an ordinary person that people paid a lot of attention to. Now that I have the chance to release an album and fulfill my dream, I feel that I am a very fortunate person. It still feels like a dream."

Zhang Yun Jing yearning for new romance: hopes to find someone who is willing hold hands and eat minced meat rice together

In ZYJ's new album, she debuts her songwriting skills by writing her own lyrics in sync with a melody composed by Golden Melody winner and songwriting-queen, Tanya Chua. ZYJ commented that the lyrics "Actually speaking of love, love is always ordinary happiness" represent her own views towards love. ZYJ: "I'm actually really 'old' when it comes to love. I don't want the drama-filled romance, I only wish for someone to hold hands with when I go out to eat, just living a normal life. I hope that I can find this someone!" (hopefully this is an accurate translation XD)

Zhang Yun Jing is not afraid of the paparazzi? [Pulling up underwear] is really embarrassing.
As ZYJ's popularity is rising, it is hard to avoid the paparazzi. When the interview got to talking about what would be more embarrassing to be caught doing, Jing said: "Pulling my underwear!" Jing feels that the life she lives is too normal so she isn't afraid of the paparazzi following her. But Jing, who is a Virgo, holds a small stance concerning such circumstances. She isn't afraid of getting caught picking her nose or cleaning her teeth. But she is afraid of wide circulation of pictures taken of her pulling her underwear because it really is "too embarrassing!"

Receiving criticism for dressing neutrally (or like a guy), ZYJ doesn't take notice
During Super Idol, ZYJ attracted much attention and discussion about the way she dresses. Coming from a singing competition and still dressing the way she did before, ZYJ has been compared to China's Li Yu Chun. Regarding the way she dresses, ZYJ gave a firm answer: "When being yourself, having your own opinions is most important. You can't use someone's appearance to judge that person. For example, those who express their own opinions in showing themselves to the public are the ones who won't become bad." She encouraged other girls who dressed like her in outer appearance: "I've always felt that someone who knows how to be themselves, is someone who is the most simplest person."

Regarding the opinions that netizens hold, ZYJ said that she doesn't look at them. She is grateful of netizens' support and comments that she usually takes into consideration. But ZYJ feels that what is most important is if one knows what kind of person he or she truly is. She took the role of comforting a junior contestant (Zhang Cheng Han or Xi Er) whom she dueted with on Super Idol season 3, telling her, "[this] is something everyone has to go through, people in the public are always talked about. Occasionally listening to these comments and regarding them as opinions is all you have to do."

a funny segment of what happened during the filming of Jing's Unprecedented MV

credit to mai0409 for the clip
Jing is hilarious in here during the first few minutes where the makeup ppl put on the wig on her
she keeps on thinking she's looking at her younger sister in the mirror
rofl :loool:
she's just so awkward when it comes to girly stuff

Jing had a signing event 5/30 in XiMenDing. I think this was her biggest signing event, the crowds were pretty big from the accounts I've read clapclap
so Jing did a special performance of her song Cynical/玩世不恭
it was like a sword dance thingy, I've sort of forgotten what specific english term I can call it
Posted Image
the sword's not visible in this pic...haha...but I think Jing is getting even more confident in performing now (even if it is something she hasn't tried before...like dancing in front of hundreds of ppl XD)
Posted Image
here's Jing and the sword XD
i wonder if she's filming a MV for this?

here's some links to Jing's performances at her signing events today 5/31 in Jiayi

Jing's Let Me Take of You is so good live, especially if you watch the clip with your earphones on :D (cuz sound quality sort of escapes due to video quality...)
Unprecedented
Jing goes crazy near the end of the song; she goes jumping around the stage like a monkey
a graceful monkey :loool: she must have been really pumped up :loool:

waiting for the release of Jing's new MV...
it's almost been 4 weeks or so since Jing has come out with her album
Let Me Take Care of You shall be a popular 3rd single once the MV comes out :thumbsup

side note: congratulations to Jing for staying on the Top 10 on the music charts (it varied between #10 and #3, some of her singles stayed #1 : thumbsup )
a lot of popular artists released their albums this week including Wilber Pan...
one last pic

Everyone, please take note that AF is an english forum so do not post in chinese in this thread :)
If you guys want to have a chinese conversation, do it on each other's profile.

Keep to using english here. Thank you!

Since I haven't met any other Jing's fans from U.S for the past 10 months :(
Wow, Minchong, you really did a good job for spreading 'Jing's Poison" clapclap clapclap !!

nice to meet you too, Jing truly has international fans :thumbsup

new news article (thanks to singshow2008 for posting at golden typhoon)
this news is referring to the new MV, [Let Me Take Care of You] that Jing filmed with QiLing of Blue Bird Flying Fish and Li Hui Qi, fellow Super Idol from Season 1 Top 10
thanks to cfensi up above for posting the 120 second teaser
a lot of ppl are beginning to "ship" the two xD

Zhang Yun Jing isn't [girly] enough, will only kiss up occasionally


2009.06.02 Taipei
After acting gentle for a while, Zhang Yun Jing immediately went to playing basketball with junior Qi Ling and even hurt him in the process of doing so. (credit for pic: Golden Typhoon)
Zhang Yun Jing just can't be girly so in the setting of her new MV [Let Me Take Care of You], Jing becomes engaged in an ambiguous relationship with Qi Ling and her acting was praised to have much chemistry. So Jing hurried to film the basketball playing scene and once again regained her manly status, even causing Qi Ling to get hurt.
Jing's record company took on a challenge in trying to bring out the feminine side of Jing. They got her to film scenes with Qi Ling where she leans against him and there is even a scene where Qi Ling pushes her against the wall in an attempt to kiss her. These scenes gave Jing a chance to display the [Young Woman] side of her. Anyone watching the television won't be disappointed. There are also scenes filmed outside, including a scene where Li Hui Qi lets Jing and Qi Ling have a moment together.
Unexpectedly, when Qi Ling and Jing filmed the basketball scene, Jing was so manly that Qi Ling was no match and really scraped his knee. (translator note: not sure if this is just describing the scene or if it actually happened -_-)
Qi Ling, defeated by his senior, became the laughingstock of the film crew. But Jing said: "I do have my girly moments though." On the outer appearance, she may not have the legs of Japanese teenage girls, but she will kiss up to people occasionally;that "occasionally" meaning once every two days.
On the other hand, Jing plays basketball like Jay Chou. Playing skills don't matter, instead it's all about looking good while playing.

Jing is really going beyond in this MV, watching the teaser actually just makes me more excited for the full version. The whole story of the MV is like a drama. Jing's acting is superb for her first time.

To Minchong92 and Little Bee:
Nice to meet you, guys ^__^
Oh I see~~that's why I never see you guys there
but you guys can always reply in English :)
maybe it will make more international fans come out there and join the fan club
BTW, in Baidu, there is this 198396 Birthday Building people try to build for Jing before her B-DAY
it's a little bit behind schedule now
since Jing's B-day is 3 months away
you guys are welcome there
you can write down anything you want
English~Chinese, whatever ^__^
I think it's a very meaningful gift for Jing
if you guys have time, please join us there
Yeah, I'm waiting for my CD also
but the new version CD+DVD is coming soon
I definitely will get that one too
It proably includes all the MV too

ok sure do :)
I'm really set on getting the CD+DVD and whatever thing Jing designed that will be included
but I heard there are only 5000 copies of this version :wave:
and I'm sure that by 6/5, there's a huge chance that all these copies will be gone...which is a good thing clapclap ...but also a bad thing for everyone overseas
i'm hoping to buy it online at the 5music website, but im not sure :(
hopefully more copies will be printed, but that's a small chance

wow, i've been waiting "let me take care of you" 's MV for sooo long,
it's finally here, and i love it

haha
but,
did he really kiss Jing??
doesn't seem like it,
hmmmm
lol

probably around this weekend or early next week
i bet once people watch the whole thing on TV, there'll be a whole wave of ppl rushing to the cd stores to get her album :D
as for the teaser version of the MV, I've already watched it more than 3 times
and surprisingly, I don't get sick of it or anything :loool:

thanks minchong for all the translation ^^
i posted this link to the facebook account already..
i believe that this forum will be very alive soon!

thanks :)
hopefully more ppl will join now
side note: I figured out how to post news now here
Spoiler


some new pictures from a news article from NOWnews (probably will try to post that news article in the headline news section)
Jing is really 絕美超帥. how do you translate that to english? Beautiful and Handsome at the same time... haha... I think that is what makes Jing different from most Taiwanese female entertainers
Posted Image
shuai pose

cute or shall I say... XD?
did anyone see that fancam of Jing jumping up and down really crazily after her Unprecedented performance at the Jiayi signing event?
