She declared: “I’m under pressure !” And added: “Actually, I regret a bit taking this role, for this work, I am now starting to eat hard-boiled eggs !”
She keeps asking her staff: “How do I look ?”, and after listening to everyone’s praise, her confidence comes back: “The old lady is fighting !”

Jolin’s agent, Tom Wang, stated: “Thank you for your concern. Xiao S has always been an artist that Jolin likes very much. We are also looking forward to great work happening!”
