The Daredevil in Jacky Chu

Remember how I was wondering about Jacky’s current whereabouts as of talent agency and whatnot when I updated on Qiao Qiao several months back? (Go here if you don’t remember.) Anyway, I finally got the answer what happened. He had left Boda already and joined an agency called “Yale Talents” sometime around October. That is not all because after landing a guest starring role in “Mei Ren Long Tang” (美人龍湯) as a father of two kids, he scored a leading role for a movie called “Shi Kong De Mei Xue” (失控的美學). (The picture above is from the movie.) Mad exciting for Jacky fans, right?

So, first things first, this is his new image for “Mei Ren Long Tang“, I’m guessing it’s a professional role since he didn’t disclose much. (The better since there will be more surprises during the actual watching and probably there will be more info when the drama actually airs, which IS soon.) Regarding the ‘two kids’ part, I’m not totally sure, but the count is from the pictures posted so far. Here’s his daughter:

Isn’t she cute or what?

I’m guessing this is his son from the drama, BUT not too sure. From his fierce look in the scene, I wonder if that was the part he talked about with having to hit his son (which he totally didn’t want to do and had cried on Weibo about it). (Yeah, prepare for major scolding from the audience, right? LOL!)

As for the movie, it’s currently filming and I think they survived several days of it already. All I could find out as of now is the theme of car racing. (Obviously from the pictures of the blessing ceremony.) The reason why we haven’t really heard about it much was because he had kept it under wraps at the beginning (probably when he was still studying the script and talking to the production team, etc) was because he wanted to surprise his mother.

A nice surprise during Day 4 of the filming was Ming Dao’s visit. Jacky was filming some scenes at Da Jia Riverside Park (大佳河濱公園) that day. Interestingly enough, Ming Dao brought hot coffee and hot chocolate to visit them. (It was posted on the Yale Talents’ page.) Jacky had even posted the photo on his own Weibo and had expressed his idea about 183 Club reuniting to perform in the mainland sometime this year. (Probably just old feelings and how he could get excited with the memories of 183 Club days so don’t hold your breath on this one. Though I really want to see something like this happening too but we’ll have to wait and see. And yes, for those who are wondering, Ming Dao has already been discharged from the army. Go here for more info.) The reason for Ming Dao’s visit? Actually, there might not be a specific reason at all since Ming Dao’s enjoying time off right now until he starts working again. It was nice to see him visit Jacky though. The other reason? I have a guess because it sorted of add up, lol. Jacky had been whining about the cold weather during the early hours of filming so probably Ming Dao had to shut him up by bringing hot drinks to the site, lol. (No, not trying to stir anything up, just my fun guess here. Maybe I should save it for my fan fics, lol.)

Anyway, after some silence (aside from the Asia Wave hype with James), Jacky’s finally back on the radar regarding dramas. I’m excited! If only they would air “Blissful Dandelion” too. BUT since “Mei Ren Long Tang” is airing soon, I shouldn’t be asking for too much? The fact that Jacky said that he felt like he was back at J-Star sort of got me thinking he’s back into a stable point. At least I had a feeling he likes it better with a busy schedule and facing challenges, like how he’d always dive into stuffs others might suggest against in the past. But whatever it is, I’m all for it! Or should I start holding my breath for a theme song in the happening? (It’s not a surprise that the main guy gets to sing for the soundtrack, right? Or am I getting ahead of myself again?)

Until next time!

  1. A really informative update on Jacky Zhu (Chu). I think this leading role in a feature film (even, if as I suspect it is low key, low budget one) is a a great sign of success, and a definite indicator that at long last, his career is gaining momentum once again.
    The years have been kind to him, and his looks, even if he is not conventionally handsome, have become very distinguished. I like his singing even better than his acting, so I truly hope he sings the opening song for the film.

  2. Yeah, I rarely update on him anymore (because I was lazy) but had to for this one since I was on an information hunting trip. Well, not too sure how the budget/production is but just glad he has something coming and something he’s happy to work on. I saw some clips he posted with the race scenes BUT not much yet. I’ll do an update in the future if there’s a more extended clip posted. (If I don’t forget first, lol.)

    But yeah…just hope he gets to sing for the movie.
