On This Day…

Today marks a year of Han Geng’s lawsuit with the old company..

Today indeed is a day of  multiple blessings and celebrations…! There are so many things to look forward to…for one,the results of Han Geng’s lawsuit.., the launching of his concept book, the 1st of it’s kind in China regarding a celebrity..! His win at Mengniu Music Festival…!!

A year ago on this night, I didn’t sleep, he slept for a while. This year today, he can’t sleep, and I’m going to sleep for a while. In the middle, but it’s been a year.

From that entry of Sun Le, one will notice how Han Geng is feeling right now…compared to a year ago…on this day..!

Han Geng was at peace on that day, 21 Dec. 2009…he slept well whereas his friend, Sun Le couldn’t sleep..worrying what will happen to Han Geng on the road ahead…in the years to come..! It shows that Han Geng was really relieved to be out from that contract and does not worry too much about the problem..just leave it to the lawyers…and he was confident that he can look forward…He had the attitude of someone who just believe that there are certain things that is within one’s  control and that there are those which are not..! He knew that once the “stone is cast” there is no retreat..there is only forward march..!! And marched he did, in the days and months that followed..!!

Today, it seems that the reverse happens..Han Geng couldn’t sleep and as for Sun Le, he slept..! Why did Sun Le sleep and Han Geng stays awake..? Probably, Sun Le knew that Han Geng is doing well now and that he has paved his way on the path  which he had chosen..! Or maybe, he was thinking that he did a good job of assisting Han Geng along the chosen path and he has no regrets seeing that his friend is happy and both of then have come out of the aftermath of the lawsuit with minimum scars or without..! Or he could be thinking that today, no matter what the result or verdict of the court might be, both of them had tasted their dreams and had tested the waters and knew that there is no turning back..the clock! At the very least, today, could be a turning point for both of them..that they don’t have to go around aimlessly and carrying a burden with them not knowing the outcome of the lawsuit which was started 365 days ago. Finally, there is some progress and the arbitration/ debates/ arguments/ are over…! Today is the day of reckoning be it “good” or “bad” provided that there is justice done today..!

Now, Han Geng, he couldn’t sleep..why? Could it be excitement for him..? That finally, the day has come to know whether he has gotten rid of the shackles that bound him..and be totally free..! Be free to accept offers and contracts without having the shadow of “uncertainty” hanging over him..

Be free to do bigger and greater things..!

Be free to venture into the vast expanse of the universe.!

Be free to roam the grounds of the earth without looking over his shoulders to see if there is anyone stabbing him from behind…!

Be free to soar higher, sprint faster, and go the distance without any burden on him…!

Be free to be the person that he wants to be…and can be !! That is the ultimatum of  his desire..!!

So that may be the reason he couldn’t sleep..thinking back to the day he took fate into his own hands and made that important decision..! Looking back at how far he has come and where he has been..! Savouring all the tastes and experiencing all the ups and downs in the past year..!All he had experienced could be contained in a book and in a book he did..! He did what no other ordinary singer or star could…!

He sang.  He danced. He performed. He acts.

He directs. He “writes”… 

He is one ordinary man doing extraordinary achievements…!!

His weibo followers has reached the 2 million mark as of today…! He only opened his weibo account in the last days of June this year..! He had 2 million fans/followers in just 6 months…!! Fantastic…!

His album “Geng Xin” has passed the 500,000 mark (unofficial count) as of today…! Official count is at over 300,000 copies..!

Now this ….The Top 10 Outstanding Chinese Youth 2010 ( At last, he is recognised by people other than Gengfans/Rice )

England Big Ben Awards Organizing Committee revealed to the reporter of Fujian News Net that on the 20th, by the Big Ben Awards Organizing Committee, World Youth Chinese Chamber of Commerce, Yan Huang International Federation of Youth Culture and Federation of Chinese Elite Youth, they held a conference for the ‘2010 England, Canada and China’s Top 10 Outstanding Chinese Youth’ and revealed the official list of winners.

    It is so strange, like everything is destined… Exactly one year ago he filed the lawsuit; exactly one year the result came out; on the exact same day his book came out; exactly one year ago he wrote the same message to his fans… like Han Geng is destined for greatness. Han Geng’s story IS extraordinary, like a fairytale…almost too amazing and unbelieveable.

    • garnetblue says:

      Whether if one believes in destiny or not, this is something that borders on the uncanny, was it deliberate..?
      Or was it just coincidental..?
      Was it destined..?
      Yes it was like a story out of a fairytale, that I find it hard to “believe” and digest them all these ….
      Even HG reacted in a way that is not “natural”
      Watch this clip…HG’s response to the verdict..
