To celebrate her Golden Bell nomination and the recording completion of her new album, Rainie Yang ChengLin's record company gave her seven red undergarments for good luck. They hadn't expected Rainie to say that, in addition to never having worn a thong before, she was afraid that wearing them for seven days straight would inflame her skin and make it red and swollen. She laughed and said, "I still prefer to wear my granny panties! Am I disillusioning my fans?"
Rainie said that, she had had two pairs of sexy underwear in the past. She said, "It had little polka dots on it, and it had ties on both sides. It was the type where, if you pulled the string, it would "open." But I never wore them, and, when I moved, I actually threw them out." She said that, even when it came to pajamas, she prefers the one-piece type. Additionally, she won't wear "invisible" underwear, even under her clothes. "It's very dangerous! If you start to swear, even a little, it will start sliding down!" When it comes to choosing her underwear-- bras and panties alike-- she prefers to remain conservative.
* Translator's Note: By "invisible" underwear, she probably means the type you tape to your body.
Rainie's new album, 半熟宣言/Ban Shou Xuan Yan, is scheduled to be released on the 7th of November. 帶我走 [Dai Wo Zou] [Take Me Away], the ending theme for Rainie's 不良笑花 [Bu Liang Xiao Hua] [Miss No Good (The Bad Campus Belle)], will be included. It was written by 蘇打綠 Sodagreen's 青峰 Qing Feng; she even specially went to Qing Feng's blog to leave him a message of thanks.
Knowing full well that her immune system has become weaker, Rainie has recently begun seeing a nutritionist. "The doctor said that my blood is "hot," as though there are three fires burning within me." The nutritionist told her to be careful with her diet; the hardest habit she'll have to break is eating beef.
Translator's Note: "Hot blood" is a Chinese medicinal concept. It's extremely hard to explain >_<
Asked about her hopes for taking home the Golden Bell Award for Best Female Actress, Rainie replied, "Everyone has a chance, but it won't be me." She is "betting" on either 柯素雲 Ke SuYun or Ariel Lin YiChen. She clarified again that there is no "argument" between her and Ariel: "Ever since I was little, I've liked to wear the same clothes as my friend. I would definitely not care about someone's 'bangs being the same' as mine!" Her record company also gave her a replica of the Golden Melody Award trophy. She joked, "It's possible that I won't be nominated for another five years!"
