Once again a picture paints a thousand words.. and words cannot express the feelings that are coursing through the hearts of each and every gengfan and gengster and geng’s gang (as someone suggested..)
This is a screenshot from the FB page of Nickelodeon. The feeling is so sweet to know that all our efforts have paid off! We have a sense of victory whenever we see him standing on the world’s stage receiving awards like this. There are still detractors lurking out there criticising Han Geng whenever he gets an award, no matter whether it’s locally or internationally. When Han Geng is recognised internationally, we have this sense of achievement and victory. Yes? No?
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all international fans and supporters of Han Geng. I personally know of a few of them who gave their time to vote for him day and night. Right from the moment after Han Geng opened a twitter account, his international fans became more energetic and aggressive to vote mercilessly. Someone said that it was unfair that we opened new accounts just to vote for him and he/she claimed that we used underhand methods. For me, I don’t have a twitter account, but I used my daughter’s dormant account to vote. At first, I don’t know how to use it but in order to help China’s Gengfans to vote I learned how it was done and all I needed to do was to hash-tagged @KCA#votehangeng# in all my messages and to re-tweet them! In fact what international fans did was to retweet again and again..
But I wanted to say is this..nothing is conclusive when the polling was still on, anything can happen. New accounts do not equate more votes and popularity does not translate into votes as well! It is the determination, dedication and devotion which got Han Geng his win. His competitors were all heavyweights in their own countries and they have access to all the voting sites in the social media. As for fans of Han Geng, their voting sites were limited since China does not have access to Twitter and Facebook. So what makes him the winner? It is not love because other fans also love their idols. It is not determination nor devotion either because others have these too! It is time and sacrifice..it is how much time can one sacrifice for sitting at the PC and keep tapping away at the keyboard on the “vote” button!! As I’ve mentioned before in the EMA polls, Gengfans roped in their family members to help in the voting 24/7. It was not just passion, it was more than that. It was a mission for them!! Every time there is a poll, GFs consider that is a mission seriously. So the end result was as we see it! I would like to insert a fan’s account here and let you guys savour the experience with her. Credit belongs to her.
Sad to say, not all are happy with Han Geng winning this kind of major international awards. They will come up with all sorts of accusations just to put him and his fans down. It is good that we, international fans are “clueless” of all the black propaganda that is going around on the entertainment front in China otherwise we will be as riled as they are. What we see from the outside is like a rosy picture but what most of us do not know is that Gengfans in China are enduring the black propaganda thrown at them and Han Geng at the slightest excuse! So do please understand why GFs in China are so protective of HG and defend him vehemently whenever sensitive topics are raised.
No matter how low a profile he is, there will always be issues to pick on, like this recent show on Jiangsu TV. Since the detractors can’t find anything to destroy Han Geng with because Han Geng’s integrity is now a known fact, they are now targeting his fans. They wrote articles about Gengfans squabbling with other idols’ fans over this new TV show!! Again this is to hype up viewers’ ratings for another show similar to the one that HG is in..! Incredible, right? Hah! Now they want to exploit GFans’ so-called “power”..hahaha!!
Han Geng rightly and aptly acknowledged that he is a big kid in his thanks on KCA stage! We know that already, Han Geng!! Right guys?
Since that Han Geng has been recognised by the international music body, China’s music industry is frantically scrambling to jump on the band-wagon as well.. Right after MTV-EMA, WMA followed closely but before everything was ironed out, then came the KCA which switched the fans’ voting attention to it. When the dust settled and cleared, we saw that WMA, will now be held this year like some time in October? The nomination list of last year was expanded to include more artists but Han Geng’s nominations are still intact! Still in the running for (1) Best Male Singer, (2) Best Music Video-Clown Mask, and (3) Best Entertainer of the Year!
Now here is the fun!! Finally China’s Global Music Awards is giving 7 nominations for Han Geng..Check it out!!
