New teaser only

Recap of the 35 minute event:

► Jolin’s performance with Namie Amuro on I’m Not Yours will be included in the release. She praised Namie, saying that she’s a really attractive artist. According to Jolin, in private she’s as cute as a little girl.

► Jolin watched Namie Amuro’s performance at NHK’s Kouhaku on December 31st. Since there were no Chinese subtitles, she could not understand what Namie was saying, but she could feel that she was very emotional (Namie Amuro is retiring in September 2018).

► Every time Jolin sees 美杜莎 Medusa‘s headdress, she remembers the feeling of having her neck very sour (the headdress was very heavy, that’s why Jolin doesn’t dance during the performance).

► When asked about concerts leaving the deepest impression on her, Jolin mentioned the Malaysian date of PLAY World Tour. It was outdoors, she was not used of outdoors concerts. It was raining a lot, she was drenched, slipped with her high heels and fell on stage. She finished her stay in Malaysia resting and aching.
Jolin also mentioned a concert she held for her 3rd album Show Your Love. She had lost a lot of weight, and while performing 你還愛我嗎 Do You Still Love Me, her eyes couldn’t focus, she was seeing double. After this, Jolin realized the importance of health.

► Sam Chen, Warner’s CEO, appeared on stage to offer a “gift” to Jolin: the word “呸 Pei” (Chinese title of PLAY album) written with oiled rice, and pink eggs, a symbol of the concert’s DVD/BD festive birth.
He said Jolin could be considered an “underground producer” since she went several times to the editing room. Jolin answered while laughing that she felt like she had given birth to a child and thanked Sam Chen for helping her “giving birth”.

► Last time Jolin went to an amusement park it was 3 years ago at Universal Studios Japan. She can only remember the Harry Potter games.

► Jolin thinks rollercoasters are more exciting than Ferris wheels, but she has seen too many thrillers, and fears now that the rollercoaster might stop in the air.

► For Jolin, Ferris wheels are not romantic, things from everyday life are, like cooking and eating together.

► Jolin said while laughing that she read posts by fans online saying that PLAY我呸 was already an old song. She’s very happy to finally launch PLAY World Tour DVD/BD.

► Jolin hopes to release the new album this summer to wear less clothes, and relax.

PLAY World Tour DVD/BD will be released on January 30th. You can buy it on 5music DVD|BD (standard shipping or EMS) or books tw DVD|BD (EMS only).

Jolin’s vocal performance has been criticized by some netizens.
Tom Wang, Jolin’s agent, answered to these critics by saying he was the one who pushed Jolin to perform at the Golden Horse Awards and that she was very nervous while preparing and rehearsing this performance.

Jolin thanked the Golden Horse Awards on her Facebook for inviting her, saying that every opportunity is “rare and valuable”. She was nervous because there was no dance involved in the performance, but she was also feeling relaxed and happy.

Jolin also posted on her Facebook that she would come back next year with another medley of C-Pop classics to show her determination. She’s going to practice hard !
