We’re calling the Fall/Winter edition of Nanyou our “rebirth issue”. In other words, it’s our revamp issue.


I’ve already shared a few reasons for the revamp in my Editor’s Note (though Nanyou has only been published for six issues, but its biannual status means it’s actually been around for a good three years), so I shan’t elaborate on that here. If you really want to know why, get a copy of Nanyou and find out for yourself.


Celebrities have always played an important part in Nanyou’s DNA, so don’t expect to see just an unknown model on our cover any time soon. And not just any celeb makes the cut – it has to be a major star who is popular, stylish and boasts regional appeal.


This issue, we’re very excited to have the swoon-worthy Wu Chun gracing our cover. I’m sure he’s a familiar name to most, but here’s a short recap to jog your memory: Born in Brunei, he ventured to Taiwan to forge a path in showbiz. There, he first came to our attention as part of popular boy band Fahrenheit. He later carved out a successful solo career, headlining numerous blockbusters and earning accolades for his leading man roles. Despite his idol status, he doesn’t shy away from sharing details about his personal life, even confessing that he is now a married father of two. This revelation hasn’t put the slightest dent in his popularity. Instead, it has won him widespread praise.


On the day of our shoot, Wu Chun arrived at the studio with his manager, personal assistant and stylists. In our experience, having such a big entourage around can be tricky, but thankfully, things went swimmingly that day. Wu Chun’s manager and crew were extremely amiable, and placed their utmost trust in our team to get the best images.


Every bit the consummate professional in front of the camera, Wu Chun acceded to our every (reasonable) request. Despite some technical challenges, he was more than helpful when it came to creating our special cover (if you haven’t seen it yet, log on to Nuyou’s Instagram or Facebook account at NuyouSingapore now).


I’ll let you in on a little secret: We actually toyed with the idea of having Wu Chun pose topless for this cover (the man is a certified personal trainer and the founder of a chain of gyms in Asia)­­. But after much deliberation (we are a fashion title after all), we decided that it was still best for him to keep his Gucci clothes on.


The issue is now out on the shelves, along with the special cover that has created quite a buzz. We hear that even those who don’t usually have the habit of buying magazines are grabbing every last copy, all because of this highly collectible cover – isn’t that something you wouldn’t want to miss out on?


2014秋冬版《男友》,我们管它叫“重生号”。

其实说白了,就是革新。我在当期的编语中有提到为什么仅制作了六期就要改革(因为是半年刊,所以即使仅六期其实也过了三年),这里就不赘述了,真想知道为什么,(容我在此小小地打一下广告)请支持买一本《男友》来看吧。

明星/艺人是《男友》的特色之一。所以我们的封面一定不会只是模特,而一定会是明星。而且不只是一般艺人,还得至少是区域性、有时尚感,撑得起场面的大明星。

这一次,我们邀得吴尊。说起这位帅哥,你不会不知道他是谁吧?好啦,临场特别为你恶补一下:吴尊是原籍文莱,于台湾发展以致成名的明星。以男团飞轮海中一员出道,后来单飞,转战大银幕,接演了无数大片。婚后有子的他更大方公开自己的“新老公兼爸爸身份”,完全放下所谓的偶像包袱。此举不但无损他的人气,反而为他赢得新好男人的美誉。

拍摄封面当天,吴尊带着一票经理人、助理、造型师抵达摄影棚。一般这种大阵仗,会出现两种情况,一种好一种不好。还好,当天的是好的情况。吴尊的经理人等非常友善,也对我们的团队有信心。

对吴尊的种种要求(当然我们也没有很过分的要求啦),他都专业地一一做到。

《男友》这次的封面有一个特别制作(不知道你已经见识了吗?如果没有,可以到《女友》官方Instagram或Facebook:nuyousingapore寻找《男友》吴尊封面的美拍视频看一下),而吴尊也爽快地二话不说配合了。

悄悄告诉你,原本我们是想让吴尊秀一下身材、裸上身入镜的,因为人家好歹也是开健身房兼任健身教练的,不过考虑到杂志的时尚角度,最终还是决定让他着衣展现时装。

最终,一辑吴尊的时尚帅照出炉了,当然还有佳评如潮的特制封面。小道消息说:有不买杂志的人特地购买了这一期《男友》,就为了这个绝对值得收藏的特制封面。你,又怎能错过?
