成龙为子剃头 寓意重新开始
Jackie Chan gives son a new haircut

【新闻速递】房祖名选在大年初六发布涉毒获释后的首条微博,称要“从心开始”。在房祖名发布的微博图片中,祖名以一头利落的短发示人,看上去精神了不少。父亲成龙亲自为儿子剃头,意为“重新开始”,母亲林凤娇则在一旁陪伴,一家人其乐融融,这也是房祖名出狱后一家团聚的首个新年。此前房祖名曾召开道歉记者会,表示将彻底悔过,这次在成龙的监督之下“削发明志”,看得出房祖名的一片悔过之心。

对于房祖名的改过宣言,郭采洁、陈建州、徐濠萦、锦荣等一众艺人纷纷转发力撑。有网友苦口婆心地表示,盼望祖名体会老父的不易,早日重新做人:“加油别让龙叔伤心了,小房子!”“知错能改善莫大焉!”“还很年轻,一切都来得及!”“想想你爸那么大岁数了,还在银幕上拼命,你就心疼心疼他,别再让他操心了!”“祖名依旧是大哥的好儿子,我们都支持你。”

The beginning of the year motivates people to move on, and it seems that Jaycee Chan, son of actor Jackie Chan, is ready to start over with his life and career after a six-month jail sentence on drug charges.

The 32-year-old posted two photos on his Sina Weibo yesterday, featuring Jackie Chan cutting his hair, with his mother looking on. It was the first micro blog item he posted after his arrest in August.

The caption attached to the photos says congxin kaishi, which literally means "start from the heart", and also sounds the same as "start from the beginning." The other photo features a close-up of his new haircut.

Chan made a public apology earlier this month on Feb 14 after he was released from jail, for allowing people to use marijuana in his apartment.

During the press conference, he said that there was "no reason, no excuse" for his behavior that led to his arrest in August alongside Taiwan actor Kai Ko.

Jaycee Chan's action also echoes a Chinese idiom, xiaofa mingzhi, or, "cut one's hair short to indicate his firm determination". The idiom comes from the tale of King Goujian of Yue during the Warring States Period (475-221 BC). After he lost the fight to King Fuchai of Wu, he cut his hair short, lived in a shabby hut, slept on brushwood and tasted gall to remind himself of the humiliation.

Chan's post has received positive feedback, with more than 358,000 likes, 43,000 reposts, and over 70,000 comments as of 10.30 am today. Most of the messages encourage Jaycee Chan to move on, and some complimented his father's haircutting skills.(英文文本 via ChinaDaily)
