[EDIT 3/28: New teasers] Horror MV 紅衣女孩 Lady In Red coming next week ! / [MAJ 28/03 : nouveaux teasers] Le clip d’horreur 紅衣女孩 Lady In Red débarque la semaine prochaine !

🇫🇷 Version française page 2.

🇬🇧 All translations by Jolin Jeneration unless stated otherwise.

紅衣女孩 Lady In Red MV will be released on April 2nd, for Qingming Holiday.

Director is 程偉豪 Wei-Hao Cheng, the man behind horror movies 紅衣小女孩 The Tag Along and its sequel (posters above), inspired by Taiwanese urban legend “The Little Girl In Red”.

This urban legend also inspired the song 紅衣女孩 Lady In Red (at least music-wise), which is why Jolin asked him to shoot this MV.

“I really like red very much.
Red, it has its own kind of power.
Red is blood, passion is a wound.
It’s the origin of life, it’s something we can’t lack.
When I was communicating with the producer, I said: “I want a feeling of a ghost story.”
Because when you want to walk into the muddiest place in your heart, it’s actually a bit painful.
There is a feeling of a ghost that no one is going to save you from.”

Jolin Tsai about song 紅衣女孩 Lady In Red

You can find info about the urban legend (and the first movie) below !

Five promotional posters and a teaser have been posted online by Jolin’s team.

MV Teaser

In the pure white snow, a headless female corpse with a bright red wedding dress, a wedding ceremony like a funeral, a beheading murder case exposing the darkness of human nature, exposing the story of a complicated love and hatred triangle. Everyone is anxious, in the end, who is the murderer in this beheading murder case ?

徐熙娣 Dee Hsu and actor 王柏傑 Po-Chieh Wang are guest-starring in this horror MV. 徐熙娣 Dee Hsu is playing the part of Jolin’s best friend, 王柏傑 Po-Chieh Wang the part of the groom.

They also share a kissing scene.
Dee Hsu asked Jolin if she was jealous, she shook her head shyly and said no. Dee Hsu said angrily (as an act): “That’s because you’re not married ! I’ve been married for 12 years, as long as it’s not my husband’s kiss, I can receive it !”

“I waited until Jolin invited me at last. And it’s a horror story filmed by 紅衣小女孩 The Tag Along director on top of that, so I was eager to try ! Actually, I was worried to not be able to act in the MV. However, after reading the script, I realized that it had been written for me. Because I found out that I had a kissing scene with the male lead, so I told my agent right away “I pick it up !”

Dee Hsu

When Dee Hsu asked Jolin why she wanted her for the MV, Jolin answered: “Because your figure is very suitable !”
This left Dee Hsu totally dumbfounded since she thought that Jolin would answer “Because you’re the most suitable person for the role” !

It only took 2 takes to complete the kissing scene. Dee Hsu shouted: “How come it has been completed so fast ? Can we do it again ?”

Sony Music Taiwan is also holding an event, a few lucky fans will be able to watch the MV in a theater at midnight Taiwan time on April 2nd !

紅衣女孩 Lady In Red MV will be uploaded afterwards on Jolin’s YouTube channel at noon Taiwan time on April 2nd.

EDIT 3/28: new teasers have been revealed !

“That year, you gave me a hairpin, and said that we would be good sisters forever.
Oh, light the candle, and you’ll be able to see my words at once…
I hope that my apologies can make you forgive me…”
“Dear Sis, how are you doing ?
I would like to be honest with you. Every time I think about you, I feel like I owe you something. But I know you won’t be mad at me because I’m your most favoured little sister. Since young, you always share with me all the good stuff, just like the blue apple. Although we’re not biological sisters but our relationship is thicker than ever, right, sis ?”
English translation: jolinmuse@Twitter
“Yesterday’s letter, did you read it ? I still remember when I was a child you would always share Tanghulu with me, and that blue apple…
But you still remember… How to draw it, how to draw it ?
Send it to me: go6cp4ji3@gmail.com”

If you send a drawing of a blue apple at the mail address above, you’ll get this:

“Today my older sister told me the story of a spirit (living) in a lake.
One day, the axe of a woodcutter accidentally fell into the lake. At this moment, a figure emerged from the lake, it was the spirit (living) in the lake !
The spirit (living) in the lake asked the woodcutter: “Did you lose a golden axe or a silver axe ?”
The woodcutter said: “I lost an old axe”.
The spirit (living) in the lake felt that the woodcutter was being very honest (towards him).
So the spirit (living) in the lake gave right away a golden axe and a silver axe to the woodcutter.
But none of them had seen that there was actually a pair of sisters nearby on the edge of the lake who had seen everything, and they threw an old axe into the lake on purpose.
The spirit (living) in the lake asked them: “Did you lose a golden axe or a silver axe ?”
The sisters said: “We lost a ???* axe.”
The spirit (living) in the lake snickered…”

*The Chinese sign has been altered on purpose…
From a newspaper (English translation by jolinmuse@Twitter):
“APOLOGY
Me, Dee Hsu apologized on newspaper officially because I have done something that harmed Jolin Tsai. But I hope that she can let go and give me all the good stuff just like what she used to do when we were little.
Apologize – Dee Hsu

🇫🇷 Version française page 2.

🇬🇧 Jolin attended Standard Chartered Bank Charity Marathon yesterday in Taipei !

Following fans’ disappointment since only 2 signing sessions are scheduled for UGLY BEAUTY (on Jan. 20th and Jan. 27th), she stated that there might be other opportunities to meet her.

Tom Wang, Jolin’s agent, added that they have a long promotion period anyway.

*“Standard Chartered Taipei Charity Marathon” is the biggest and the most visually-impaired (VI) runners participated marathon in Taiwan. The major difference which sets Standard Chartered Taipei Charity Marathon apart from others is its good cause of visually impaired caring. For the past 6 years, Standard Chartered Bank has cumulatively donated NT$60 million through the race event and found job placements for around 500 visually impaired in Taiwan. The theme of 2019 is “Be Fearless”.
