I believe this piece of game show was broadcasted in late 2000, probably
around Oct/Nov. Tony was in Taipei promoting his new album 'tony leung - In the
mood for love'. He participated 'naming the celebrity' game on a popular tv
show Super Sunday. I got a recording of it when it's aired over here two
weeks ago. Have a look...
This CNN interview was recorded 2/1998 on CNN Asia. For those of you who had never heard Tony speaking in English, this would be your chance. As a matter of fact, Tony speaks excellent English, with a mix of British and American accents. Each clip is two to three minutes long. The entire interview was only about ten minutes long. Many thanks to Seo-young for contributing this tape.
From 1998 HKFA Award Ceremony. I don't know who came up with the idea, but it's brilliant. Two Tony Leungs showed up to present the award ---Tony Leung Chiu-Wai and Tony Leung Kar-Fai.What a stunning cast! (Seo-young's contribution)
This is a series of home videos taken by TIOH members when Tony visited Korea in 97 and 98. There are actually several more hours of these, but since I don't have enough time to put everything up, so I selected several interesting ones to post. Tony
really knows how to play the crowd, always smiling and waving in every occasion.
Watch out for the korea4.ram. Tony speaks in English again! (Once again, thanks goes out to Seo-young. She is the one who made it all possible for you to see.)
Watching these clips, you get an undeniable feeling that Tony was bewildered by his own popularity. At least it's to his credit, he remains humble after all the maniacs.
I, for one, have never thought Tony was this popular in Asia. No doubt he is a a very friendly fellow. He is always ready to beam into a big smile--- a true star quality---knowing when to turn on the charm.
He was friendly, but with a reserved guard. Could it be his shy nature to keep a personal distance? After all, he probably has his own doubt about the public perceptions. The fans may want him today, but they could turn their back against him, and abandon him tomorrow. Being a star is a very unrealistic thing. A star is never how he appears to be.
The real person is several layers masked below the glorious makeup. His true self remains to be seen. How can a man remain himself after hearing thousands crying for his name, screaming every chance they get near him? How can he remain cool when everybody around him is in hysteria? How can one remain sane when everyone else is not.
Perhaps, sanity is a rare commodity in his life. (Sorry that I got carried away with my commentaries. Well, I couldn't help thinking about it after watching these tapes....)
You got to see this one---footage of Tony behind camera. It was taken in the backstage of Esquire photo shoot. Look familiar?? One of the poses was posted in the Magazine collection. (Seo-young's contribution)
