"Rear Mirror" peaks at 31 PTS; Louisa So promises to get married if ratings break 40
"Rear Mirror" cast members Louisa So, Wayne Lai, Natalie Tong, Tony Hung and others appeared in Tseung Kwan O TVB City to celebrate Monday night's episode peaking at 31 points! Louisa revealed that once she received the news of the high rating, she was so happy and blurted out "I am very happy!" and expressed her hopes for the ratings to continue climbing up, to another number that will make her scream out loud.
Speaking of Tony Hung showing up today in a cosplay costume as Asuka Langley Soryu to fulfill the promise he made if ratings are good, Louisa also added to the list: "If the ratings break 40, I'll get married immediately!", causing everyone to be surprised and congratulate Louisa. Louisa admitted that her boyfriend had proposed to her many times already, but when asked if she agreed or not, she did not respond and only said: "Hope the ratings break 40! Then you ecan ask whatever you want! (Happy event one after another?) Yes! Double happiness please!"
Wayne Lai expressed that he is very happy about the drama passing 30 PTS, but he remained humble and said he believes the drama received good results because of his co-stars and the balance of the script was done well. Wayne also revealed that they may have a celebration party on the night of the finale: "If the results are good, I think it's great if we gather together!"
About Louisa promising that she will get married if the ratings break 40 PTS, Wayne laughed and said if Louisa gets married, then he will treat a table of the Rear Mirror co-stars to congratulate Louisa. Natalie Tong also promised that if the ratings break 35 PTS, she will dress in her beer girl costume from the drama and show her "career line" to thank the audience for their support. Tony Hung agreed that then, he will play guitar and sing an English song and accompany Natalie showing her career line.
Jaycee Chan, son of Jackie Chan has been arrested in Beijing on drug-related charges, Chinese state media say. Jaycee Chan, 31, and Taiwanese movie star Kai Ko, 23, were detained last Thursday, Beijing police said in a statement on their official microblog. Police said both men tested positive for marijuana, with more than 100 grams of the drug found at Jaycee's home. Their arrest comes amid an ongoing crackdown on drugs which has already netted several celebrity figures. Gao Hu, 40, who appeared in the 2011 Zhang Yimou film "The Flowers of War", was detained earlier this month for possession of marijuana and methamphetamines, state media said.
In June, Chinese President Xi Jinping called for "forceful measures" to tackle illegal drug use. A government anti-drug advisor told the Associated Press news agency that Chinese celebrities were being targeted because of the "huge influence" their behaviour had on "their large numbers of fans". Beijing Municipal Anti-Drug Office deputy director Jin Zhihai however, said that police were not specifically targeting celebrities. "If there is an increased crackdown on drugs, the number of celebrity offenders will also rise," he told the Beijing Times on 14 August.
Last week, 42 artist management agencies in Beijing signed an agreement with police pledging not to recruit celebrities with reported drug use problems. Jaycee Chan and Kai Ko are the latest celebrities to be netted in the high-profiled crackdown and Chinese actor Gao Hu was arrested in August for drug possession. Jaycee's father Jackie was named an official "Narcotics Control Ambassador" by Chinese police in 2009, had been put under "criminal detention" for the suspected crime of "providing a shelter for others to abuse drugs", Beijing police said. If convicted, Jaycee faces a maximum prison term of three years.
Kai Ko, accused of consuming drugs, had received a two-week detention term, his management firm Star Ritz Productions said. "I feel very regretful, very sorry to all the people who support me. I've been a very bad example, I've made a very big mistake," he said in an interview broadcast on Chinese state television on Tuesday. Beijing police also said two other people, a 36-year-old assistant and a 33-year-old suspected dealer, were detained in the incident.
Jaycee's management firm M'Stones International apologised on his behalf for the "social impact" caused and said they would "supervise his rehabilitation and help him return to the right path". According to SCMP, Jackie Chan has travelled to Beijing in a bid to help his son Jaycee, following his arrest on drugs charges.

The title song is by Duble Sidekick, and is a fresh dance song with a strong beat. The choreography for the song is also one of the hardest KARA has to date, with flashy hand movements and complicated stage flow.

Siwon takes part in the ice bucket challenge for ALS + challenges 2 Super Junior members
A trend these days is to bring about awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosi (ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease) by doing the 'Ice Bucket Challenge'! People will be challenged by friends, family, or others to either dump buckets of ice cold water onto their heads or donate to charity (although some do both). In turn, this will help bring awareness to the problem and rake in more donations from those who learn about it through this publicity.
Recently, the ever kind member of Super Junior, Siwon, was tagged by singer Tim and posted the video onto his Instagram for all to see! He then challenged two other Super Junior members, Eunhyuk and Donghae, so maybe keep an eye out to see their own take on the challenge.
