As Taiwanese fans are soaking up Van Ness Wu goodness in his latest acclaimed drama “Autumn’s Concerto (Next Stop, Happiness)”, his many fans in Japan are still enraptured over his F4 days nine years ago in “Meteor Garden”. And while his Japanese “Sakura sisters” are still waiting for the epic Taiwanese drama to arrive in Japanese shores, his fans can appreciate the return of Van Ness’ musical side with his latest Japanese language song “Reason”.
Van Ness’ character in “Autumn’s Character” has had pivotal moments, not only losing the memory of beloved girlfriend as the story progressed, but also committing himself into the role of an attorney at the mercy of fate. But it’s his stellar acting, as well as the engaging story, that brought the drama’s ratings into the stratosphere.
After the release of his pop/R&B single “Reason” – the third song in his latest musical outing – Van Ness will make a full-fledged entry into the J-pop market with the release of his album “Reflections” in Japan come February 3rd.
Van Ness has been active in Japan for his upcoming “Reflections” release, receiving help for the song’s lyrics from Japanese vocalist Aisa of Taiwanese musical unit Da Mouth, as well as steamy MV cameo appearance from fellow “Autumn’s Concerto” co-star and tabloid-rumored lover Tiffany Hsu. Besides flexing his language chops in Japanese, the MV also showcases slick and impressive dance moves.
According to Taiwanese media, Van Ness will also hold a mini-live concert in Japan as an opportunity to get in touch with his fan base in the land of the rising sun.
