Ge Lei, Zhou Mi’s drama co-star (she plays Victoria’s aunt):

At my level I can only think of “handsome” and “pretty”! Or do you think “so handsome” and “very pretty” are more appropriate! [touxiao] [heehee] [heehee] [haha] [haha] [haha] @Zhou Mi @Miss Ge Lei

Calvin left Shenzhen for Taiwan the (very early) morning of January 19.

@20:45

CALVIN: Even funnier is last night, I was coming back [to Taiwan]– okay, I’m going to tell you something funny. Last night I was preparing to go back, so of course I had to check out of my room. So I called Super Junior M’s Zhou Mi, he’s the one filming the drama with me, and I said, “Hey, can I leave my luggage in your room?” So I took a shower and put on my pajamas and dragged my luggage over to his room.

AIFEI: Wha?!

[Transcript] 120111 Zhou Mi mentioned on Taiwanese makeup show “Queen”

REMOVE WITH FULL CREDIT.
TRANSLATED & TRANSCRIBED BY: @zhouminews

T/N: The show is 女人我最大, and the literal translation is: I, Woman, Am Supreme (has also been translated as “Woman” or “Woman in Me” but is basically a makeup, cosmetics, and feminine lifestyle show targeted towards, uh, people with an inclination towards makeup and fashion.)

Chen Wei is probably part of the group of girls Zhou Mi and Danson were hanging out with in Seoul.

Begins @ 2:43 — This segment is where each of the guests introduce ~new and exciting~ makeup products that they ~have to buy~ when they go abroad, which is why Chen Wei talks about going to Korea.

CHEN WEI: I only just got back from Korea last week. And! I have a secret to reveal, because among my group of friends we have a Super Junior member, he’s– He’s– He’s–

EVERYONE: What? Who?! (etc)

[Fanaccount] 120107 Zhou Mi and Liu Chao at their Shenzhen hotel

PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE.
WRITTEN BY: 维尼真爱工会
TRANSLATED BY: @zhouminews

This fanaccount was written by Khuntoria fans who waited at the actors’ hotel in Shenzhen for Victoria and is actually about their food support project, but I only translated the part about Zhou Mi (and LC, since she talked about both of them at once). They didn’t manage to meet Victoria, but they met Zhou Mi, Liu Chao, and Calvin. It’s not very informative but there’s barely any news of him, so…

Note: Saying someone’s face/head is small is a compliment… it’s considered attractive

While we were waiting, we met Zhou Mi and Liu Chao. Zhou Mi is for real skinny, with a small little head, small little face, but he’s really tall. Pipi is 166cm and she had to look way up to see him. He’s pretty nice too, as we were asking him questions he kept smiling. Liu Chao is healthy thin and super good-looking in person, with a really sweet smile. We spoke with both of them. If you met either of them in person, you’d definitely be awed. (PS: Pictures were not allowed, so we don’t have any, please don’t ask us.)

[News] 120106 f(x) Victoria tackles a Taiwanese drama, avoids dubbing: gives her first time to Calvin Chen

PLEASE REPOST WITH CREDIT.
SOURCE: Apple Daily
TRANSLATED BY: @zhouminews

The Chinese member of Korean girl group f(x), Song Qian (Victoria), has advanced onto the TV screen, and will soon be appearing as part of a love triangle with Fahrenheit’s Calvin Chen and Super Junior M’s Chinese member Zhou Mi in the idol drama Shi Qu Cheng Bao De Wang Zi (The Prince(s) Without A Castle), to be released by proxy by GTV. Her first onscreen kiss might be given to Calvin Chen!

[Omitted part listing Korean stars who have starred in Taiwanese dramas in recent years.] But none of them could speak Chinese, so they had to rely on dubbing artists to be their “spokespeople.” However, Chinese is both Song Qian and Zhou Mi’s mother tongue, so language is not a problem [this time].

[Predebut/Interview] 060817-060823 Zhou Mi leaving the CCTV Hosting Challenge for Korea

REMOVE WITH FULL CREDIT AND ALL TRANSLATOR NOTES.
SOURCES: CCTV and Sohu
TRANSLATED BY: @zhouminews

The following two articles are about Challenging the Host, CCTV’s annual televised hosting competition. (It’s sponsored by Mengniu Dairy. That comes up later.) In 2006, Zhou Mi easily made it to the Final 16 before withdrawing from the competition. The first article is an interview with him, Yu Mai, and Zheng Lei, all of them Final 16 contestants. Zhou Mi had already announced his intent to pull out of the competition before the interview was held. (Note: he was an extremely popular contestant.)

The second article talks about Zhou Mi’s motivations for and feelings about leaving the competition to train in Korea. His language is very evasive; he never mentions SM Entertainment by name nor does he even say that he’s joining an entertainment company. Instead, he talks about it in terms of being accepted to a Korean university for a study abroad program, most likely because SM didn’t want his entrance into their training program to be too high-profile. Zhou Mi’s wins were being reported on Xinhua and Sohu Entertainment and syndicated everywhere.

More notes where applicable.
