Leehom Wang Bans Release of Kissing Photos with Crystal Liu
Leehom Wang’s first directorial debut, Love in Disguise <恋爱通告> will be released on August 13, 2010. In the film, Leehom will portray a superstar who disguises himself as a student in a music conservatory school while pursuing love interest, Crystal Liu Yifei. Leehom has secretly guarded footage of his kissing scene with Crystal and banned the photos from media circulation.
Placing great importance and involved heavily with all aspects of Love in Disguise’s production, Leehom worked on the script personally and insisted that the leading actress be Crystal Liu. The film allegedly cost $600 million (NT) to produce.
Allegedly, Leehom and Crystal were heavily engaged in their “romance” outside of filming. Leehom and Crystal often had dinner dates together and netizens noticed the pair even wore matching lovers’ bracelets. After filming a kissing scene with Crystal, Leehom immediately took the film footage away, banning the public release of the kissing photos. Suspicion arose as to whether Leehom was using the film to privately chase after Crystal, as evidenced by his overly protective gesture of their “relationship.”
Jayne: Leehom looks very compatible with Crystal Liu. Love in Disguise is a must watch if you are a Leehom fan. Otherwise the story may just be a showcase for Leehom to strut his stuff; the plot sounds like a teen romance novel. Will any deep and meaningful theories on love relationships be explored?
