Alternative Canto-pop star Faye Wong, right, is to emerge from her self-imposed exile in Beijing where she has been ensconced with husband, mainland rocker Dou Wei, and baby, Ching-tung. She made a rare appearance at a Commercial Radio-organised event in the Chinese capital during the summer, but now plans to appear with friends, Na Ying and Jeff Chang, in an FM Select concert at the Convention and Exhibition Centre on September 29. Next month, she will hold concerts in Guangzhou and be the guest at a major showcase of talent in Tokyo.

However, at a recent press conference, Tsui announced that Young, who played a gender-bending youth in The Lovers, was now 'too feminine' to play such a role.
