Leehom Wang: “I Am Currently in Love…”
Leehom Wang appeared on Taiwanese talk show, < SS小燕之夜> and said that he preferred women with a natural style who do not give him pressure. He did not like women who wear a lot of gold or silver jewelry. The program host, Chang Hsiao Yen, noted that Leehom appears to prefer mature women. Leehom thought for a moment and said, “From my past love relationships, that seems to be true.”
Leehom’s statement re-directed fans’ attention towards his past rumored girlfriends, Amei Chang Hui Mei (who is four years older than Leehom) and Shu Qi (who is one month older). Due to his preference for older women, Leehom is able to share his life experiences with a partner [who is of equal maturity].
In Leehom’s directorial debut, Love in Disguise <恋爱通告>, the media pointed out that he took a gamble in casting young actress, Crystal Liu Yifei. Leehom smiled, “I quite admire Crystal . She has a unique style. Although she is only 22 years old, but her acting possesses a certain strength.” Leehom did not deny the fact that when Crystal was selected as the female lead in Love in Disguise, the film company owners and investors were doubtful and gave him pressure.
Love in Disguise dominated the box office and his album, The 18 Martial Arts <十八般武艺> was the number one selling album since its August 13th release. After he became a film director, Leehom has become livelier. Earlier at a premiere party, Leehom got slightly drunk and participated in Chen Handian’s dirty jokes, displaying his saucy side.
In addition, during the promotion of Love in Disguise, Leehom openly admitted that he is currently in a relationship, but did not disclose his girlfriend’s identity. To find out what type of woman he preferred, Leehom asked fans to watch Love in Disguise.
Jayne: Leehom is a big teaser; how can he admit that he is seeing someone and refused to provide more details? In recent interviews, he hints at romantic currents with Crystal Liu. Or perhaps he is just a master at marketing? Love in Disguise is performing very well for a directorial debut film.
