Dance of the Dragon Premiere at Cathay, Singapore!
I thought I’d pop on down to Cathay and snap some photos and do some of that “grassroots” reporting I always used to read about, and here are 4 unprofessional photos of the Dance of the Dragon premiere at Cathay!! HAHA. For those of you who don’t know yet, it stars Singapore’s Fann Wong, Korea’s Jang Hyuk, and Jungle Boy Jason Scott Lee!!!
First photo shows us the water-rain-proofed “red-carpet”. The event was supposed to have started at 6pm, I arrived at 6.15pm, and there was barely a crowd– testimony to our sad sad fan culture (And no wonder Maroon 5 ended their concert after only an hour- my korean teacher says that if Singaporeans were better fans they may have stayed longer. haha) The following photos (at the bottom) should tell the tale. Most people were walking past it. Anyway I couldn’t stay long so I just walked there, surreptitiously snapped some photos, and slinked away. Rather piqued about the movie, especially after seeing the trailer. Then after reading some comments at POPSEOUL!’s entry about it however I did wonder about whose English would sound better, Fann Wong’s or Jang Hyuk’s? They’re good actors though, I think. kinda sucks that the English-factor has to interfere. They should have made Fann Wong’s character a mute or something, she can just look pretty and act through facial expressions or something, and made it in Korean so Jang Hyuk doesn’t have to use English. As for Jason Scott Lee… uh. They could’ve have gotten Rain for his part! HAHA but then it’d just be a Korean film and not a pseudo-Hollywood one. Oh well. Enjoy the trailer~!
