Luhan wins Most Valuable Male Star award at Baidu Moments Conference

Luhan wins Most Valuable Male Star award at Baidu Moments Conference

Luhan received the Most Valuable Male Star Award at the 2014 Baidu Moments Conference in Beijing on November 19. The award ceremony marked the second official appearance of the Chinese singer since leaving K-Pop group EXO and filing a lawsuit against his Korean agency SM Entertainment in October. His first public appearance post-lawsuit was a Miss Granny promotional event, a film which also marks Luhan’s acting debut.

In his acceptance speech Luhan credited his fans for the feat saying, “Thanks to all the fans, I’m able to stand here today.”

The Baidu Moments Conference isn’t the first time the Chinese star has been recognized for his popularity on social media as Luhan entered the Guiness World Records for ‘most comments on a Weibo post’ in August 2014. No doubt this acknowledgement comes as a result as the host mentioned the record before handing the microphone to Luhan for a short award speech. Check out a fancam of Luhan’s acceptance speech at the end of this blog.

In other Luhan related news, an extended Miss Granny (重返20岁) trailer been released for Taiwanese viewers as well as a special video that features Luhan in several behind-the-scenes moments on set. A highlight is his 4-dimensional personality at its maximum as well as his politeness to the crew seen in the deep bow he makes to every cast member he meets.

The film Miss Granny (重返20岁) is set for release on 15 January 2015. The film is a Chinese remake of the Korean original which was released in January 2014. In the Korean version an elderly woman enters a photobooth for a professional picture and magically becomes a 20 year old in the prime of her youth. As a young woman she develops romantic feelings for a music talent scout and joins her grandson’s band.
