Chris Lee – Prologue

Director of Infernal Affairs, Andrew Lau, directed Mainland China’s pop idol Chris Lee’s new music video titled Prologue (序幕), in which she plays an assistant at a music video shoot where she ends up being the star.

Chris Lee, a.k.a. Li Yuchun, was China’s first Super Girl winner in 2005. The show, which is an American Idol-type show only for girls sprung runner-ups BiBi Zhou Bichang, Jane Zhang, Huang Ying, and winner Laure Shang Wenjie.

The video, lasting a whopping 15 minutes, chronicles several days of a music video shoot with fictional diva Xiao Tao as she is directed by Lau and makes it difficult for the production to continue… until the director is fed up and puts Li Yuchun in front of the camera.

There’s a YinYueTai version available.

You can also watch a slightly crisper versions of the video on Youku.com or Sina.com, though the loading times seem to be slower for people outside China.

Lesson learned from this video? Never be difficult in China. They can replace you easily.
