Joe Cheng Takes a Break from the Military to Attend Movie Premiere

Oh holy mother of a hot potato – Joe Cheng went into the military a pretty boy and took a break from securing the maritime borders of the island of Formosa to attend a movie premiere and show us all that he’s a man’s man now. This weekend during Joe’s scheduled weekend off from military service, he drove down to Kaohsiung to attend the film festival there for the premiere of his upcoming period movie Ripples of Desire. Co-starring Michelle Chen, Ivy Chen, and Jerry Yan, only Joe and Michelle attended this premiere and they also play a couple in the movie. Joe and Michelle took a yacht to the premiere party and totally dressed the part of A-list movie stars as they walked arm-in-arm to greet the attendees and do a question-and-answer session. This isn’t the first time Joe and Michelle have worked together, she played his fiancée in Channel X and I have to admit they had great chemistry. I’m not sure about the movie based on the trailer, though I felt that Ivy was stealing the show in both her character and performance. It’s great to see Joe take a breather from all his manly duties, which his good friend Mike He commented on this weekend when he was doing a publicity event for one of his endorsement deals. He called Joe a real “top gun” after seeing the picture of Joe holding an automatic weapon while guarding a cache of smuggled tobacco. After seeing Joe whipped into shape in just 3 months, I remain convinced that its actually good for the male celebs to serve their duty willingly and happily.

  1. Whoa! I’m lovin hottie Joe though my,first love always be cutie Joe….i love how the buzz cut is showing off his height…can’t wait for a comeback drama when he’s done with army duty

  2. Wow – my baby’s all grown up and really handsome. 🙂 Ok, I’m really not much older than him but still, for some reason I just see him as such. I followed him all throughout his career and to see him all grown up like that is pure awesome. 🙂 I can’t believe he’s 30!

    Anyhow, he looks so good with short hair. I always liked his short hair looks. It really fits him well.

  3. I totally agree that military service turns boys into man.
    SO HOT.
    Michelle looked kinda washed out in this white dress, wished she had picked something in colour or wore makeup in stronger tones.

  4. he looks great. though i am a bit wondering why when korean actors go into the military, they come up bulkier and still hot, yet our taiwanese ones go come out still so skinny? it’s a strange phenomenon! (i like ’em bulkier!)

  5. cant believe with his pics here compared with his character in The Rose where he’s being super adorable half-gay-half-not-gay..

  6. Urgh, I don´t think I´ll ever understand the notion that it takes the handling of weapons to make “a man out of a boy”..

  7. Joe looks absolutely delicious! btw I believe Taiwanese military allows all those serving their military duty regular breaks after their initial in-camp training. So it’s not just for celebrities.

    • I never watched any of his series before and only heard from ppl and forums that he is a great onscreen kisser. When I got around to watching his series. I agree that he is one of the best onscreen kissers out there. Too bad he can’t kiss me offscreen ha!

  10. Yah, he looks so manly in here! So agree, he’s really one hot actor. Although, short hair looks great on him, I dunno, on my personal opinion, he looks good and dashing as well in long hair. Just watched his old drama, Summer x Summer (2007); I must say he’s modelicious in that drama. So, what’s he doing now, I think he completed his service. I hope he’d do some collaboration work in the near future with my favorite Korean superstar, Yoon Eun Hye! The screen will definitely explode as both of them are the Hottest Actor/Actress!
