Prelude- winter sunshine greeting the happy-boy from Sanya
A name would be imprinted forever into the Dadonghai Beach on Fed 1st. The happy-boy, haunted by lawsuits for nearly one year, finally returned to his hometown in full glory with his debut music album and handed out a satisfactory report to Sanya people who raised him as well as his fans (¡°peanuts¡±), who had been standing on his side for all time.
The name of Spring Comes after Winter seems to go relevantly with Chusheng¡¯s heart. Comparing with his visit in Sanya for announcement shooting in summer, he looked happier and more confident. The familiarity of hometown aroused his interest to disclose his childish dream of being a pilot. Soaring in a kingdom of music, he succeeded in holding a concert of his own and bringing more different types of music to us. The happiest on the debut album autograph session must be his loyal fans (¡°peanuts¡±). When the lucky ones took over the autographed CD from Chusheng in sequence, their beautiful smiles with excitement and satisfaction were great encouragements to him.

Standing on his ridge of Sanya, you could behold the whole view of Yalong Bay and Haitang Bay with flouring tropical vegetation placing in the middle and light cloud and mist spiraling up and hovering like a dream. The lineup was walking in the scene, excited and surprised. All thoughts of hermit hidden deep within were seduced out.
