Mark Chao is the Role Model for World Reading Day 2017

This is the perfect spokesperson for a very worthwhile day to highlight as a pass time that has endured through centuries is slowly eroding under the speed of modern technology. April 23rd was World Book Day as sponsored by the UN, a day to remind folks of the pleasures and pursuits of reading a good old-fashioned tome. TW-actor Mark Chao served as the Chinese face of World Book Day, shooting a commercial spot sharing his love of reading, and boy was I getting goosebumps juxtaposing him with his drama character the god Ye Hua in Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles Peach Blossoms. There’s such a quiet reserved stoicism to his aura and demeanor, so perfect for Ye Hua in every way, yet with the potential for explosive passion lurking below the surface. He embodies reading a book and then being touched to the core by the story.

  1. Thank you for the article. I have loved Mark Chao ever since I first saw him in Love (2012) movie. And of-course, Ten Miles of Peach Blossom was like a dream. I am so glad to read that he has taken on such a worthy cause as reading… I look forward to seeing him in upcoming drama Midnight Diner, aka Midnight Foodstore, in which he plays a deaf father.I hope it gets subbed.

    • Mark Chao is really attractive with character of Ye Hua. Many ladies dream to have this unreal lover in reality. Mark received western education and the way he behaves is so natural and sincere. His wife is really a lucky one! God bless!

  2. It wouldn’t have been appropriate, but it would’ve been awesome if he was reading 3L3L. Or even better, the original BL version of the story. Baha.

  3. Thank you for the update. I need more of Mark Chao. I still can’t move on yet from 3L3W Ten Miles of Peach Blossom. He is an excellent actor, in my opinion and I am looking forward to his next project. Love him!!!

  4. I love him. Ten miles of peach blossoms was such a pleasure to watch and I fell so hard for Ye Hua *-*
    More of Mark Chao please! Is he in any coming movie or drama??

    • @ Marie

      He is in a new drama called “Midnight Diner”. I think he is playing a father. I hope it will come out soon.

  5. I loved his characters in Peach Blossoms. He’s a wonderful actor and so handsome. I would also love to hear more about him in the future.

  6. The first time I saw him was in the tv series “Black and White” and honestly I didn’t care that much for his character since my heart was in it for Vic Zhou’s character but after seeing him in Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms….no man will ever be the equivalent to his Ye Hua.

    • OMG!! Your’s comment is similar situation with me during the time he in B&W drama. I am too more into Vic Zhou that time and i found him cute too. But, seriously the 3W3LTMOPB really a spark for him and make him glowing more. Now, we just realised he is a one of the rare and precious person in entertainment industry.

  7. I have been wanting to read more of Mark Chao’s news but have not found any… anyone with latest news please share. Thank you 🙂
