Chinese mainland singer and actress Han Xue released her third album in Beijing Tuesday afternoon, October 30, 2007.
Han released her first album in 2004 and in 2006, released Summer Love, her second album that seemed entirely devoted to summer. Her numerous fans have waited 19 months for a brand-new album. Han Xue revealed that over 3,000 bunches of johnny-jump-ups were transported from Yunnan to Beijing by air in order to finish the image for the album cover.
At the well-decorated press conference, her label Sony BMG presented her with a special gift, an ice sculpture containing her album within it. It was such a big surprise that Han Xue burst into joyful tears. Sony BMG predicts good sales for Han's new album.
A Journey into Fantasy, Han Xue's new album expresses sweetness and happiness. Her effortless presentation makes songs sound natural and removes any sense of annoyance the listener may have. Anyone would be lost in her refreshing melodies as soon as her songs begin.
Han confirmed that the name of the album represents her own journey into success.
Since she joined Sony BMG in 2001, she has had increasing success on the music scene and the silver screen. She now continues along her journey to her dream.
"I have made progress step by step since I started acting. This autumn, my new TV series A Love Before Gone with the Wind airs on China Central Television (CCTV) and I release my new album. My efforts help me win more recognition from my audience. For me, A Journey into Fantasy is my own musical story."
