It came as a surprise to me that there's a Chinese article on @george_hu__
in my local newspaper 「新明日报」
Here's sharing the Eng translation of the news article: 不能前往中国宣传新剧 胡宇威开启“云宣传”
Taiwan based artiste George Hu upcoming drama would be showing in Mainland China this month end, however due to the current virus epidemic, he couldn't travel to there for the publicity run of the drama. Instead, they are running the publicity through the internet.
近年来在中国发展的胡宇威， 新剧「我在北京等你」定于 2月23日在江苏卫视、浙江卫视 以及腾讯、优酷等视频网播出。人在台湾的他受访时表示，这次新剧上档刚好碰到疫情，没办法前往中国进行宣传互动，只能多靠线上的网路宣传，也就是所谓的“云宣传”模式。“换个角度想， 大家因为疫情减少出门，或许可以增加收视率，看戏打发时间也是不错。”
The drama [Wait in Beijing] was scheduled for release on 23rd February, broadcasted on Jiangsu and Zhejiang statelite channels, as well as on various web platforms like Tencent and Youku. George Hu is currently in Taiwan and due to the virus outbreak, he won't be able to travel to China for the publicity run, instead he is promoting it, mostly through the net, the so-called "cyber publicity". "From a different perspective, it might not be bad news. Due to the current situation, people tends to spend lesser time outdoors and thus more time is spent at home, watching TV. Eventually the viewership for our drama might be boosted." He explained.
Pertaining to the current epidemic, do you practice any precautions? "I try to go out lesser, and if I were to be in crowded places, I will definitely wear a mask. Besides having mask, I will also bring along a bottle of ethyl alcohol, so that I could disinfect anytime. But most importantly is to maintain positive, don't panic."
