Top Combine is a Mandopopboy band. The group formed in 2007 with the members Bird Zhang, Mars Ma, Kenny Liu, Caesar Li, and Tanas Kim. All were professionally trained in singing, dancing, modeling, and language.With the exception of Tanas, the other four members were all contestants of the 2007 Super Boy, the male counterpart of Super Girl. Top Combine officially debuted in October 2007 with a performance of their first single “Arrival”. In 2012, Caesar left to pursue an acting career, and the five-member group turned into a quartet.
In June 2012, rumors began to spread that Caesar had left Top Combine, due to a promotional poster that featured the other four members without Caesar. At the time Caesar was heavily involved in stage acting and other events, and so was not with the other group members as often. Top Combine’s manager refuted any rumors that the group would disband, explaining that Caesar did not appear on the poster because he would not be able to attend the concert that the poster was promoting.
On September 20, 2012, Caesar announced that he would be leaving Top Combine to pursue a solo career in acting. The decision was made after much consideration with his group members and with his company. The other four members expressed their support of his decision on their Weibo accounts. There are no plans to find a new member to replace Caesar.

Malaysian singer Michael Wong recently expressed his interest to work with Chinese songstress Na Ying.
According to 21CN, while speaking to the media at the press conference for his latest studio album, “Crazy Memories”, in Beijing on 16 August, Michael, who was asked about which singer he is interested to collaborate with, picked the 45-year-old singer as his top choice.
Michael expressed, “I’ve worked with many great artistes in the last 20 years, but the one I want to work with the most is Na Ying. I want to have a duet with her. I really like her voice.”

In keeping with the applicable rules, [Guan] was penalized … when he again exceeded the 40-second time limit by a considerable margin,” the Masters said via a statement.
The ruling is a rare one in tournament golf and moved Guan to 4-over par, putting his chances to make the cut for the Masters – a remarkable accomplishment – in jeopardy. All Guan could do was wait as the final players trickled in, setting the cut line.
When Jason Day finally putted out some four hours later, establishing a two-round best 6-under par, Guan had just snuck in by a single stroke. He’s the youngest player ever to make the cut at the Masters.
Actor Bosco Wong and his Chinese co-star Qi Wei attended the press conference for their new drama Young Sherlock and met up again at the hotel after the event.

The two left separately after 30 minutes, following which Bosco visited a high-end supermarket to buy wine, gummy bears and ham before returning to the hotel where he is believed to have met up with Qi Wei again. The 30-year-old was seen leaving the hotel room after four hours. According to, MSN Entertainment.
