Charlene's Confirm News:

Jingle Ma’s new movie 'Butterfly Lovers’ has been confirmed to have Charlene as their female lead

Jingle Ma’s new movie 'Butterfly Lovers’ has been confirmed to have Charlene as their female lead. She has even secretly gone for a costume fitting session.

According to The Sun, the role of Zhu Ying-tai has been a topic of concern after Gillian declined it. And now finally there’s an answer! The role will be acted by Charlene. The movie company already expressed interest in getting Charlene to act as the female lead right from the start, but because her schedule was too tight, the plans fell through in the end, and Gillian was considered for the role instead. But now that Gillian has also turned down the role, and filming for Wind and Cloud has been pushed back due to some preliminary production, so Charlene can finally be confirmed for the role of Zhu Ying-tai, and act out a life-and-death story with Wu Chun, who is acting as Liang Shan-bo.

The reporter sought confirmation from the movie company regarding Charlene's involvement, and the spokesperson said, “Yes! It has already been confirmed! Actually right from the start we wanted Charlene to act.�

Charlene’s manager Mani said, “I was having a huge headache over Charlene’s schedule. I must really thank the crew of Wind and Cloud, for willing to compromise with Charlene’s schedule. Now that Charlene is acting in Butterfly Lovers, she will be in the best shape to act in both movies, and she is excited about the collaboration with Ekin, Aaron and Wu Chun. Hope that there will be sparks between them.�

There were news on the net yesterday that Shawn Yue is unable to act as Ma Wen-cai (A/N: the villain) due to schedule conflicts. And there are also rumours that they are thinking of getting Chris Li or Hu Ge to act in the role. As for the model Angelbaby who openly said that she went for an audition, the spokesperson said, “Actually she was trying out for another role. We thought that she was not bad, but this movie doesn’t suit her. In the future we can have other opportunities to work together.

Director/Producer's Statement:

Catherine's Statement:
In modern times, there are so many couples fall in love but never have the happy ending. Is the legand of Butterfly Lovers destiny recurring? I hope that the story would bring viewers a new definition of love and a new angle to look at it.

Jingle Ma's Statement:
I was touched by the tranditional Liang Zhu story. However, i disagree with Liang's passiveness in the pursuit of love. I am looking forward to creating a strong man who would pick up his sword and fight for his love. It is the strong will for seeking love, not the ending, that matters.

Clips of them first interaction in the Press Conference for Butterfly Lovers:


Wu Zun and Charlene are working for the first time in the Butterfly Lovers or Kung Fu Lovers, in there they are lovers, The Movie isn't even starting to film and they are already wearing matching clothes. Asked about wearing the matching outfit this is the reply.

Wu Zun: At first, when I was looking for clothes I was thinking should I ask if we wear similar outfit, however I didn't know, and didn't ask, when we saw eachother and I was like wow, it is matching.

Charlene: I never talk to him before, today is the first time I meet him (I think she met talking, Wu Zun will explain)... After seeing him, she said that Wu Zun outfit is like wow, we match, he is good.

Asked about what Wu Zun think of Charlene, here is his reply.

Wu Zun: We met before, but we never talked, people asked us to stand next to eachother and take pictures, but we are scared so we didn't. I have been very waiting or anxious to work with her. The character (Charlene plays) is one that is very outgoing... and Charlene is very caring know what people want, what is that word ummmm careful..

Asked this is his first time filming, will he ask Charlene to give him several tips.

Wu Zun: Of course, because..
Charlene: Oh, don't say that lai
Wu Zun: I haven't made a movie, never learned it, so I really need her to help me out.
Charlene: I think making movie is suppose to be fun, so if we make movie and think of it as a fun thing, then I think it would fine. Plus, we are young people, so I think we will get along, furthermore the Director is a interesting and funny guy, I think we will work very happily together!!

Charlene & Wu Chun explain the situation:


Charlene said how she was sought after since last year, and she accepted it, however, because of some problem with the film, it was delayed and she at the same time accepted another film, I think Wind and Cloud 2. She also said that she knew that she was going to make the film with him Wu ZUn, it was so funny, first time meeting and they used him and her instead of saying their name. So stranger, but funny. Wu Zun said this is his first time filming and and it is ancient, so even more excited and nervous, but he knew he was going to work with her Charlene.

Anyway, second part is where Charlene talk about working with Wu ZUn. She said that she meet him in singing awards and WU ZUn nodded too, then she said she is excited or so thankful to work with a handsome guy like him, also she had seen him act before and like it, and Wu Zun was kind of like shy but not really turn his head the other side several time. Charlene also said this film is going to be fun, because we are both young people, easy to get along with. Wu ZUn on the other hand said that he is very happy to work with Charlene, he had seen her act in her movies, and Charlene is very popular in his own country Brunei, and he said that his fans like Charlene too. Moreover, it is his first time in a movie, but he asked her how many films she had done, and she said over 30, and Zun was like "Help me out." hahaha, I think the last thing Charlene said was that it is their first collobration, so she think there might be some firework between them, and Wu ZUn was nodding his head.



kelly was talking to Wu Zun and reporters asked if she wanted to work with him, and Kelly didn't really answer I think, instead she said how he is very handsome, nice tone and all, but too young her her.

Then it goes to Charlene and she sad Wu Zun is very handsome, pretty boy. Then she said her cousins and remove cousins all call her everyday to get updates on Wu ZUn, so now she is very familiar with Wu Zun. Her cousins also asked if Wu Zun is really that big, and Charlene was like yeah Wu Zun is very that big, will tone and muscular!! Then Wu Zun stands in front of the camera and said, yeah, I could cover you up too hahahaa.

The reporters then goes on to say how Wu Zun is so good with words too. Speaking in Cantonese, he said is very excited about the film, he acutally meet Charlene at some functions and asked to go take pictures with Twins, but he was scared and so was the members. Then Charlene said Really? Where, and then it end there.
