"Bull Fighting" Mike and Hebe Hong Kong Promotion
translated by: x-WISHFULthinking
Mike He and Hebe Tian yesterday went to Hong Kong to promote Bull Fighting. Hebe herself, has not made a public appearance in Hong Kong for almost 1 year. Thus, when the two arrived at Hong Kong airport, they were immediately surrounded by screaming fans. It took almost half an hour for them to get from the airport to their awaiting car, proving their high popularity.
Idol drama “Bull Fighting” with the high popularity of Mike, Hebe and Lee Wei has successfully attracted attention in Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, New Zealand, Vietnam, China, Hong Kong, Australia etc, and the broadcasting network earned a massive TW$40,000,000 from overseas. From the 19th , “Bull Fighting” is airing every Saturday in Hong Kong. Hence, TVB invited the two leads to Hong Kong for 3 days and 2 nights to participate in 15 promotional activities. Promising a high standard of hospitality, Hebe and Mike’s entourage, make-up artist and manager alone were given 6 people to look after them. TVB also booked the entire hotel to prevent outsiders from entering, reflecting the importance of the two.
When Mike and Hebe emerged from the airport, they were immediately surrounded by awaiting fans. The two had 10 body guards to protect them, and it took them more than 20 minutes to get to their car. Hebe smiled and said: “The fans in Hong Kong are like the weather, very passionate.”
In order to participate in this promotional trip, Mike and Hebe had to get up extremely early in the morning; due to an allergy reaction on Mike’s face, he did not put on any make-up. Mike said: “I don’t know why but a few days earlier, I got an allergy reaction, my make-up artist wishes for my skin to rest so she insists I do not put make-up on.” However the high status him, even when he goes to the toilet, there are swarms of female fans waiting outside the toilet for him!
Thumbs up for Bull Fighting!!! They made it to Hong Kong! Congrats to Hebe and Mike! Great Job guys! That drama was really well scripted! And whoa! 10 bodyguards! That's quite a bunch! It must have been hard getting through the "passionate" crowd. hehe. And WTH! Fans waiting for Mike outside the bathroom......HAHAHAHAAAA...
