Insatiable Geng

Han Geng has a penchant to learn and learned he did..!! When looking back at his life and his background, one could easily presumed that he would have ranted and raved at what fate and life have given to him..He could have given in to self-pity and groused that the world is unfair and people are selfish & greedy, but he did no such thing and this I would like to give credits and merits to his parents and family..He could have the mentality of that, that the world or rather the country and society owe him..and therefore he deserves to be rewarded..!

In some parts of the world, there are youths who would think that the world owes them big time..and waiting for government’s hand-outs.. I am thankful that Han Geng was born in a place and to a family who adhere strictly to certain cultural values..! The up-bringing of Han Geng is reflected in the parents’ belief..Work is a blessing and a gift from God..(though some may not think so). To quote a few great people who have passed this stage before….

Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.
Horace

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
Thomas A. Edison

Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
Theodore Roosevelt

Han Geng majored in Dance- a Discipline in Arts..which may or may not encompassed the full academic field..but that did not deter him to improve himself…! He reads lots of books to gain an insight into the world of society and glimpses of philosophy in life..!! He may not have gone to the proper or standard university but he has gained a lot more than an ordinary university student..!! a diploma or a degree doesn’t make one a better person or a smarter one..! It is the understanding of humanity and the complexity of life that make one wiser and smarter..knowing how to manage and manoeuvre one’s way in life without bulldozing or stepping on others. Han Geng has shown to the world that by working hard at what one does best can achieve success and make head-ways in one’s life.. He has carefully planned out his life on what he has in his hands and that is his talent – Dancing – ..He has danced his way into the hearts of many and serenades young and old. He channels his energy to doing the best for every opportunity that was presented to him..he never scorned at the chance to work, whether it is small or insignificant..or big and prestigious…every opportunity given to him was accepted by him with both arms ; grateful & thankful..! That’s the attitude of Han Geng. To him they are like stepping stones or rungs on the ladder for him to climb higher towards his goals..!! In an earlier post, I titled it as What’s Next Han Geng..? Some  suggested filming a movie, and that is not so surprising as that is related to his open secret of becoming a successful actor..! The thing that can be considered a surprise would be this one..! A Concept Book…?And  now he will try to put his thoughts on to paper..?

Big Hands, Small Hands, Working Hands..!!

Note:(definitions on Concept Books)

# 1 . A picture book for preschool children that attempts to teach a basic concept. Many concept books display illustrations or other art and contain only a few words per page. Concept books frequently focus on introducing children to subjects such as the alphabet, or colors, shapes, and sizes.

# 2 . A generalization (generic, basic form), or abstraction (mental impression), of a particular set of instances or occurrences (specific, though different, recorded manifestations of the concept)

Excerpt from news articleThe Concept Book of HanGeng will be published by “Enjoy Reading Era”(A publisher of Woman Magazine in China..囧)

悦读纪签约韩庚:独家授权概念书即将上市

This book contains photos that have never been released, combines with words that recorded the story of HanGeng in the past one year time.The photo will tell you, the story behind…

書中记录他这一年的歷程。从他消息隐匿的前6个月,到他重新出发發的後6个月。我们能通过这本書了解他更多,書里面也有很多别出心裁的部分~~

“Releasing an album, having his own solo concert, filming a movie… after going solo, Han Geng is having much success with his career. The approval and support by fans created a new Asian super star.

This reporter  found out recently that the only all female professional publishing company, YueDuJi Publishing  has already bought rights to Han Geng’s brand new concept book with a seven digit price tag and the book is scheduled for release at the end of the year.

Pays Attention to Female Readers: Han Geng’s First choice is YueDuJi Publishing

According to insiders, YueDuJi Publishing managed to win the rights to Han Geng’s new book completely based on its enormous publishing capabilities and professional editing team which successfully impressed Han Geng and his team. They won the exclusive rights to this brand new concept book with a seven digit copyright fee.

Seven digit copyright fee: Han Geng becomes the new “it” person in the publishing industry

The publishing industry was very busy in 2010, especially in regards to many rumors regarding copyright fees.

Han Han, Mia Jia, Yuan Tengfei… copy right fees in the millions even tens of  millions started to appear. As a normal reader, the extremely high amounts of copyright fees is beyond  us, promotional and marketing strategies based on the fee almost over laid the original meaning of the copyright fee.

For a normal reader, would super star Han Geng’s copyright fee be the same? This reporter interviewed  Mr. Yu of a renowned publishing company  about this, “This price is quite fair in reflection of Han Geng’s popularity. Because of the “Han Geng” gold banner, the sales would be very good without needing the publishing company to make a big deal out of the copyright fee.

In accordance to this, with a real seven digit copyright fee, Asian super star Han Geng has already become a new sign in the Chinese publishing industry.”

(T/N: the last bit of the article is cut as it has nothing to do with Han Geng, it mainly introduces some history and achievements of the publishing company.)

    They will officially release the pre-ordering information of this book in December. We are really not sure what exactly the “Concept Book” means here, but I believe there will be some interesting design and pictures never released before~ Our Geng just loves keeping secrets from us 🙂 Btw, I think they will intentionally set the official releasing date of this book on Dec 21, you must know how meaningful that date is for both Han Geng and his Gengfans.

    I was actually hoping that Han Geng will come out with a book one day, but not quite this soon! I was hoping that one day when he retires, he will come out with an autobiography of his life. But, this concept book will do just fine…for now. 😉 I wonder if Han Geng is actually writing the book or if it’s going to be written by somebody else about Han Geng? Either way, I hope they make it available to international fans and I hope they will have a version in traditional Chinese. Otherwise, I’ll have one heck of a time reading it. 🙂

    I am excited for him..and like Wendy, I have some inkling that he will release a book but this is too soon..all in one year..getting back his identity, cutting a solo album, having a solo concert..getting into filming a movie as male lead…and talata..! a concept book..! Just like B’grass am not sure what it’s all about..more like a little biography of HG and his achievements..
    After 2010, what is his next big step..? Directing a movie..too soon…we say, but with that precocious boy one never knows..whether one is standing on one’s feet or head..!!

    😀 😀 😀

    what else is he gonna try next? i bet he’ll come out with his own clothing line since he has shown a lot of interest in designing. i can’t believe all of this is happening in a span of 1 year…or actually less than 1 year since he only officially started his activities in July. Damn, this boy is anything but ordinary!

    i’m so curious about this book though…i’m actually hoping it will be written by him! 🙂

    • trueblue says:

      That is also one of his plans..that’s why he has his logo made already..I am sure that is already a registered trademark..He did mention it in one of his interviews that he has a plan of having his own clothes line..or fashion/design line..

      We need to call ourselves insatiable gengfans because we just can’t get enough of him. 😉
