Show Lo Sure Is One 'Trendy Man'!

By April Lee and Jessie Ng
March 11, 2009


You know him as Show Lo, Luo Zhi Xiang, or even Xiao Zhu. From the moment of his solo debut in 2003 with Show Time, Show's star has been steadily flaming (with the number of awards ever increasing), without a hint of slowing down, almost a decade since he joined the entertainment industry.

Show Lo Interview - MTV

A talented singer from a tender age, Show is also a well-known and loved host (Xiao Zhu) of the immensely popular entertainment variety show, 100% Entertainment, alongside his partner Xiao Gui. Together, the pair has delighted audiences with their wit and candor. Aside from that, Show is also no stranger to acting, having appeared in numerous Taiwanese idol dramas, the latest being Hot Shot, together with Jerry Yen and Wu Zun.

Having recently released his 6th studio album Trendy Man late last year, Show dropped by our island over the weekend for the Singapore Entertainment Awards, and swept up the Most Popular Male Singer, Artiste of the Year and Most Stylish Hunk awards.

MTV Asia stole a few moments with the boyish star, and asked him about his label as a "heartthrob," holding his own against co-stars and mega-watt hotties Jerry Yen and Wu Zun, and scrutinizing himself during KTV.

You were last in Singapore for a concert in 2007. What are some of the things you remember about your time here?
Show: It's a very safe country, very clean and orderly. I love the food here. I'm actually pretty surprised that fans here are so obedient and orderly;; that they follow instructions during concerts and don't breach security. There was once during an event, where fans were squeezing with each other, and the host for the event was like, "Don't squeeze. Spread out!" And fans actually listened!

The first single from your latest album "Trendy Man" is "Support," where you thank all your friends in the video. How did you come up with that idea to make something like that?
Show: We spent some time in the studios thinking about ideas for the video, but I didn't like any of it. So I was just mulling over it, when in the car one day, I started thinking, why not just thank all my friends? I sounded it off to my managers, and they liked the idea, so it was a go-ahead. My friends were very helpful though, because they didn't take a single cent for appearing in the video.

"Twinkle" (from 2006's album SPESHOW) was your first attempt at an English song. Why haven't you included any for Trendy Man?
Show: Well, I feel that having just one English song is good enough to make it special. Besides, I've already given up on learning English. It's too difficult, and I don't really see the need to use it much in my daily life. Even in areas of work, there's usually a translator present when I travel. But that said, I do know a few basic lines that get me by!

You've been a host, singer and actor in turn...
Show: "Which do I like best?" I've answered that question about 3000 times and my answer's never changed. I like all three. As a singer, I like to get people excited, to get them to jump and sing along during my concerts. I appreciate the sound of their applause. As a host, I get to hear the sound of their laughter while as an actor, I get to move people and make them cry.

You've been in the music industry for more than a decade, and you're recognized as one of Asia's reigning heartthrobs. How do you feel about that honor?
Show: I feel really grateful to all my fans for their loyalty, especially since I understand how fickle it can be. I think it helped that I joined the industry in my teens, so that the age difference now between me and the upcoming idols isn't that great. I always think it's funny when reporters come to me and ask how it feels like to be an upcoming idol. At this point, I always tell them "Hey buddy, I've been in the industry for 10 over years." I come across new fans now and then, and when I ask them how they got to liking me, most of them can't really explain why. Some of them will say it's because of my songs, others that it's because of my shows. But most of the time, they still can't explain what exactly it is about me that attracted them.

Tell us about performing at the Henessey Art of Mixing last year. Who were some of the stars there that you most looked forward to meeting?
Show: It was a good experience collaborating with the other guests. I remember standing beside this Caucasian guy, who was obviously much taller than me. We were doing an English duet, and I was really afraid that he would turn around and catch me just mouthing the words! I couldn't remember anything about the song really, so all I was just doing was to listen and then mouth the words after.

Almost every leading actress starring in a drama opposite you has been linked romantically to you. But what we want to know is... What is your own leading lady like?
Show: Let's talk about how a good leading lady should be like. She must be likeable, affable and someone who is personable. Her shows have to be able to garner high viewership, and she must be able to touch and move people.

You acted opposite Jerry Yan and Wu Zun in the Taiwanese idol drama, Hot Shot. How did you hold your own against those two heavyweight hotties?
Show: They're the ones who should be feeling stressed! [Laughs] But seriously, Wu Zun used to be part of the national basketball team for Brunei, while Jerry is good with passing the ball and occasionally shooting. But where that is concerned, I'm still the most accurate. So who do you think is the best - the national player, the good passer or the one with a good aim? Of course it's the one with the good aim!

Share with us some of the hilarious behind-the-scenes moments while filming.
Show: Those moments are usually shown at the end of every episode, actually. But there was one unforgettable incident, where I took a lighter and lit it under the director's backside. He didn't even notice it, because he was just too focused on looking at the monitor!

Your songs are among the hot favorites for selection in the Karaoke (KTV) scene. Do you KTV much yourself? What are some of the activities that you do to chill out?
Show: I actually have fun scrutinizing myself when I KTV. My screen at home isn't as big as the ones at KTV. KTV screens in Taiwan are ridiculously huge, I don't know why either. But that just means I get to scrutinize every single detail of myself in the music video. Besides KTV, I love playing mahjong with friends - friends who may or may not be in the entertainment industry. I also do basketball, go shopping. When I travel, I like sleeping during the flights as well.

Finally, what are some of your future plans? A concert maybe, or working on your next album?
Show: Probably a concert or tour at the end of the year. But look out for something big happening in May. It's "coming soon!"

The question about acting, hosting and singing, which one he likes most? I would like to change the question a little bit and ask him IF you could only choose one which one would it be? I he had to give up two and focus on one which one would it be?

you know sometimes some idols check out some websites that write about them.So maybe he reads this.Hmmm...i can speak both english and chinese and i wld say it dpends on what environment one lives in.for example,he lives in a 'mostly speak chinese' environment and he cant really practice english,so he thinks its hard.Well,its his decision.And i believe he does everything for a reason.and if he ever asks me why i like him...i'll give him the most hoest yet unexpected answer!
