Show Luo – Hot Shot theme MV

Show Luo’s amazing music video for the theme song of his drama Hot Shot. This type isn’t usually to my taste, but I love Show so much that I’m interested to see any direction he goes in, and this is certainly a new one.

He was compared to both Usher and Michael Jackson in this vid 🙂

Hot Shot

Hot Shot is a recent Taiwanese drama that just finished airing in November. It stars music idols/popstars and actors Show Luo, Jerry Yan(from former music group F4) and Wu Zun(from current music group Fahrenheit). It’s a sports drama, which means I would normally stay far away from it, but with a cast like this…I just couldn’t resist. I am currently a little more than halfway through it.
