[Update] JJ Lin's "She Says" MV mistaken as a movie trailer

For his new single, “She Says”, which is also the album title, JJ Lin invited the former Golden Bell best actress nominee Jian Man-Shu to star in his MV.

JJ’s record company spent big bucks to film this story-oriented MV. But after their 20-second preview was premiered at the Taipei MRT station, the record company received a complaint from the transit authority requesting to stop the broadcast. It turned out that JJ’s MV preview was mistaken as a movie trailer. The transit authority requested to take down its video due to “not having a permit for movie broadcast.” The misunderstanding was resolved after clarifying that it was actually a MV for JJ’s new album.

JJ’s schedule conflicts the production stage of his album. He could only stay for three days in Taiwan, and then head back to the Mainland to continue his concert tour. Just for the filming of the MV, it took two days and two nights; JJ and the staff were allowed to return home to freshen up and take a nap mid-way, but the MV director advised JJ to “avoid washing his hair or taking a shower” so that they wouldn’t have to re-do his hair. Since JJ loves cleanliness, he didn’t dare to sleep on the bed; he took a nap on the sofa uncomfortably in the end.

JJ plays a convenience store clerk, servicing everyone from tidying the shelves to microwaving food. After extended hours of filming in the store, JJ joked, “I eat, drink, nap, and everything here. The convenience store has really become ‘my home’ now!”

[Update] Due to working overnight to film his MV, JJ Lin fell sick and was taken to the hospital – with a fever of 39.5 degrees. After taking some blood samples from the singer, he was diagnosed with Influenza A, and the doctor advised that he needed to be quarantined for five days. Due to this, he has canceled three of his performances, losing 1.5 million RMB (~6.86 million TWD).

Last Sunday, JJ had been having a cold since he returned to Taiwan after his concert in Nanjing (mainland). Due to this, the hospital decided to take blood samples as well as a chest x-ray. Before taking the blood sample, the nurse asked him, “Are you nervous?” Although JJ was already feeling rather dizzy, he still managed to joke, “I’m not nervous, what about you?” The nurse replied, “I am because you’re JJ Lin.”
