The late leading actress of Firebird/Phoenix has a minor supporting role in the film.

AZN TV Profile on World Screen Weekly


Excerpted from World Screen Weekly: class blockquote The big draw continues to be dramas—be they in Mandarin, Cantonese or Korean. Korean titles in particular comprise a big part of its prime-time block, with Jumong, a hit for MBC Korea, slated to launch February 20. The Chinese drama Handsome Siblings, with pop star Nicholas Tse, and the Taiwanese title Mars, starring Vic Chou and Barbi Xu, both premiered in early January. “We’re really tapping into some of these Taiwanese dramas,” says Alison Keenan, the programming manager at AZN Television. “The actors are popular throughout Asia, not just specifically Taiwan.”

The bulk of the daytime programming consists of dramas and fresh in-language news feeds that come from all over Asia, including China, Japan and the Philippines.

Movies are also an important part of AZN’s programming slate, with a number of films premiering this year from a 2005 output deal with Sony Pictures Television. This year, AZN has access to 11 titles from that deal, including the Korean movie Tae Guk Gi: Brotherhood of War, Saving Face, and two movies featuring Gong Li: Zhou Yu's Train and The Emperor and the Assassin.
[…]
Anime is also a popular genre for AZN and the network has two new 30-minute shorts scheduled to premiere in August: Kakurenbo: Hide and Seek and Negadon: Monster from Mars. “They use a lot of new computer graphic technology [and] visually they’re stunning,” says Keenan. Kakurenbo is a short “horror-type” film that revolves around a game called Kakurenbo that kids play in the middle of the night. Negadon: Monster from Mars falls into the “kaiju” category, which is a genre of monster, Godzilla-type movies from Japan.
[…]
[Programming Director Alison] Keenan notes that AZN is also looking to expand the content that will be available online, such as offering a series in its original language on the media player and airing the English-language version on television.
Wow, those are some first-rate Asian movies AZN has coming up. I highly recommend Tae Guk Gi, Saving Face, The Emperor and the Assassin, and Kakurenbo. I look forward to seeing Zhou You's Train, which I remember hearing reviewed on the network channels.

Airing English-language versions of shows is a bad idea since I'm a fan of subtitled shows, but that comment hopefully applies mostly to AZN's anime, all of which is currently shown in English-only format.
