🇬🇧 It was announced only yesterday that a dance video would be provided for 玫瑰少年 Womxnly !
Jolin explained why she decided to release a dance video before the official MV:
“When I first started writing (the song), I wanted to show the beauty of my body. When I heard the arrangement, my body could not help but sway. It made me enjoy dancing in an instant. It’s like the body is emitting the language it wants! Love yourself is respecting your body’s intuitions and reactions. “
She asked Ryan Parma, a director from LA who already collaborated with Korean singer CL for Hello B+tches, to film the dance video.
It took 10 hours to film Jolin and her 14 international dancers in a sequence shot (long take). They rehearsed for 3 days before the shooting.
The meaning of 玫瑰少年 Womxnly‘s lyrics is only expressed by the choreography. The dance video is also showing Jolin’s acting and performing skills !
Jolin expressed her gratitude on Instagram to the dancers, choreographer, and director:
🇬🇧 Subbing team Qing Chun You Ni subs shared their latest release, the fourth episode of Idol Producer Season 2. Enjoy !
Jolin has joined the show this year as a dance mentor.
Jolin had an interview in 对话朋友圈 Dialogue Circle (Jiangsu TV). There are parts of 怪美的 Ugly Beauty MV making at the beginning !
“Every male and female in their heart will have a different image of their physical appearance, find how to be the most comfortable on your own, you don’t need to live in the framework of society ! (boys can also be feminine, girls can also be unyielding) I always strove to seek my self-worth. I have been lost in the definition of others, and I have resisted everyone’s expectations and criticisms. I believe that learning anything with curiosity can be equal to experience setbacks and failures. The happiest thing in 2018 is to finally hand over the album and share it with you after more than two years. In 2019, I hope to continue to share with my life and stories. My stories and the fans’ ones are inspired by each other !”
UGLY BEAUTY is still going strong for its eighth week, see for yourself below:
QQ Music (China): UGLY BEAUTY got certified Diamond for 250,000 copies sold. Jolin is the first female singer from HK and Taiwan to get this certification (and in less than 2 months) !
