Leehom Wang to collaborate with Jackie Chan in new film; says it's hard to maintain friendships when you're an artist

translated by: x-WISHFULthinking @

On the afternoon of the 22nd, Leehom Wang appeared in Shanghai to attend an event. During an interview, he confirmed that he will soon collaborate with Jackie Chan in a new film. When on the topic of him and Jolin Tsai collaborating in a new ad, he expressed that actually, the 2 have very little opportunity to work together: “Artists are all very busy, it’s hard to maintain friendships.”

It was noticed that Leehom looked very thin, and he said that it is because he is currently working on his new album, and everyday he only gets to sleep 2-3 hours. 2 days ago, he just returned from New York, he is indeed quite busy. About working with Jolin in new ad, Leehom expressed, “Everyone will soon get to see this ad, and will also be able to hear my new song in it as well. In the ad, you will see me teaching Jolin to play pool. We filmed for 2 entire days, and our pool skills have improved a lot, we specially invited a professional teacher to guide us.” He also said that besides filming this ad together, he actually has very little opportunity to work with Jolin: “We’re actually been friends for many years, but artists’ lives are all very busy, and these kind of friendships are hard to maintain, unless we have the opportunity to work together like this.”

When asked whether he will collaborate with Jackie Chan in new film “Young Soldiers”, Leehom expressed, “Of course I am very anticipating working with Jackie, I’ve watched his movies since I was little. To Chinese people, he is a hero in our hearts, to be able to work with him is of course very happy.”
