Vivian Hsu back in Japan after 7-year absence

Vivian Hsu back in Japan after 7-year absence Vivian Hsu

TOKYO —

Model-actress-singer Vivian Hsu, 34, held a press conference in Tokyo this week to announce that she is back in Japan to perform. Hsu was all the rage in Japan in the mid-to-late 90s after appearing on the cover of Penthouse Japan and then on several variety shows.

She greeted reporters in Japanese, saying “Tadaima!” and that she hadn’t forgotten her Japanese. The Taiwanese beauty said she couldn’t believe that singer-turned-celebrity Chiaki, 38 - who she became good friends with after starring together on a variety show - was now a mother. Hsu added she doesn’t have a boyfriend at the moment, but that there was someone she likes.

Hsu stars in a new commercial for esthetic treatment brand “Slim Beauty House,” which will air from Feb 20. Her new single “Beautiful Day” features as the background song and will go on sale March 3.

    Vivian Hsu? Oh yeah, I remember the last thing with her in it:

    Vivian: "Oh Andy!"

    Andy: "Aisha!"

    LOL I hate that character very much!

    That reminds me, it's almost 7 years to the day her duet song with Kaz fom Siam Shade "Moment" was released as the theme tune to Gundam Seed where she made her voice acting debut. Could it be that Gundam was the last work she did before going on hiatus?

    I think it translates as: I'm not a spider-webbed spinster.

    I can't believe she is back. Yes, she certainly is good-looking, but I hope her Japanese language skills have improved since the last time as they were rather limited last time.

    Come on! Doesn't anyone remember her in Black Biscuits and their hit single "Timing"? I preferred Pocket Biscuits with Chiaki, especially their first song "Rapturous Blue". They were both fun TV produced groups from the mid-90's. I think I need professional help....

    I went to Taiwan a few times in the past few years and have seen little to no coverage of her on TV or magazine adds there. Just as here, when the new generation of talent begins to emerge, the older ones began to fade. This may be her last opportunity of fame and money. I did see here on a hwy billboard in a tea campaign there, once.

    From the statement above I think you do not like Vivian Hsu enough. When you love a woman, you do not let your woman easily go without you knowing where she went to... Anyway, I wonder why this hot Vivian Hsu is not your type so you will let her go...I want to study how to be dumped in 10 days.

    Maybe it's just Taiwan, then - I know many guys in Malaysia who still follow her, and she was all over promotions in Thailand last year or the year before.
