Last May I had the opportunity to do some volunteer work and it turned out that I had to do some interpretations as well because the work I volunteered for was for a Global Congress that was held in Manila. There were many delegates from all over the globe and since I speak Mandarin I was able to interpret for some delegates from Taiwan and Mainland China. Some of those from Mainland China came from ……guess where? Heilongjiang!!
Naturally my first question to them was…”Do you know Han Geng?” Hahaha!!! I wasn’t too surprised when they replied in the affirmative. I would be terribly surprised and disappointed if they said no..and that will surely deflate my expectations of Han Geng being the King of Popularity, right? With their affirmation it sealed the title for Han Geng as the King of Popularity…….hehehe……So we were able to struck up a short conversation about you know who..hehehe…they were also surprised that I could speak to them in Mandarin considering that this is Philippines until they realised that I am not from Philippines..but only a resident here. I would also like to mention that the way they pronounced Han Geng’s name is not like we do. It has a slight upward tilt to the “Geng” It was soft and lilting! So I thought to myself..aahh that’s how they pronounced his name..hahaha!!
So now what has our boy been up to? His website is not as updated as his activities..so it is hard to know where he is all the time since we don’t live in China. I believed even if we lived in China, we still won’t be able to access all the information regarding his activities and movements. Many things and plans that he has are always kept in a hush-hush manner…until with a loud bombshell…it was announced that he will be part of the cast in the next installment of the Transformers serial..by none other than Michael Bay the director.
With that announcement, a series of explosive reports went viral in the social media sites from Korea to Poland! I didn’t even know that he has fans in Poland too..!! What will his role be in that movie is anyone’s guess.. Let’s have a simple game…if anyone can guess right what he is going to play….Please write your answers in the comments box below…thank you..
I do hope that that will be a stepping stone/a breakthrough for him in the international film arena.. And finally, I think I will be able to see him on the big screen here in Philippines..! For his other two movies, they were not shown here..so this will be one that I can look forward to..
As usual there were many reactions, comments and questions from the public; positive and negative. The one question that stood out was this – Can he speak English? In my view, it is not an issue.. he can have a part where the character does not have to speak English. But knowing Han Geng, he will challenged himself to do a perfect job for his 1st Hollywood movie..and torture himself to study and improve his English.. I have confidence in him that he can do a superb job like all the other things that he sets his mind to do!
There is a little bit of news that I am not too sure of…about him going for space travel? It is a new fad I suppose where one can pay to travel to space for a short trip……..but in the case of HG, he was one of the six that was shortlisted for space travel? Does anyone know about this? If you do please share to us what you know..thanks..! Oh I managed to get a video clip of his performance in Ypop Shanghai..and in it he did confirmed his potentiality as a candidate for space travel!! Hope his dream of going to space comes to reality..
Now one more thing before I conclude this…Is World Music Awards still on? Looks like many people want a piece of Han Geng!!
