[9/7/11] Following Jerry Yan, Godfrey Gao, and Ming Dao, Mike He especially went to Southern France to shoot for his first photo book, “Le Retour Du Sud De La France”. For the photobook, Mike posed nude while only covering his most important area with a blanket, making him the most daring male idol in terms of showing skin. Mike revealed that he originally only planned to go topless, but after arriving to Southern France, he decided to go all the way in order to breakthrough from his past image, as well as making it a great memory for the eight years that he has been in showbiz.
With just the photographer and his manager on set, Mike stripped away all his clothes. He expressed after the shoot, “Although I feel very embarrassed, I want to do this when I’m in the best shape and leave a great memory for turning 28. Furthermore, I want present a photobook that people will feel worth buying.”
Mike’s management company was very cautious about Mike's nude photo shoot. After the photographer finished taking the photos, the photographer surrendered his camera’s memory card right away to avoid the photos from being leaked. Mike’s manager expressed that they took another set of photos that were even more revealing, but they will decide on whether or not to put them in the photo book after seeing how the public reacts to the press release first.
The photobook will be released on September 21st.
Mike's photobook is now available for preorder at YesAsia!
