Reporter: Understand that when Gillian makes her comeback, her fees are millions of dollars?
Mani: Not that much. Actually this is not the time to talk about money. When that incident happened, Gillian lost her confidence in facing people. But now she is feeling much better and she found a little confidence.
Reporter: Now is it difficult for Gillian to find jobs?
Mani: It’s still okay. I am in this business for 15 years and a lot of clients are my good friends. No doubt we are having a financial crisis, but they are still willing to help Gillian. We are very grateful. Now with this crisis, a lot of clients want to cut down on advertisements. We can’t lower our fees and it’s not easy to settle for a contract. It not only happens to Gillian, it also happens to my other singers.
Reporter: What are your other plans for Gillian?
Mani: This August, we will have a musical with a very experienced musical magnate. Besides that, I hope to find a movie for her. Whether her role is big or small, it is not important. She must be able to let people remember her role.
Reporter: Why must it be a movie?
Mani: Actually there are a lot of idol dramas asked for Gillian but I still hope her first work will be a movie. Firstly, for movie the period is shorter. Secondly, it gives people the exhausting feeling. Because she has rested for a year and when she comebacks, her first movie is important. She must let people see her progress.
Reporter: Gillian has already comeback so when will Twins be together?
Mani: This year, I don’t think it is possible. But I can assure you that Twins will not be separated. It’s only this year is quite difficult because Charlene have a lot of projects.
Reporter: Can Gillian and Charlene stand together on the same line?
Mani: Let’s put it this way. Now the both of them have a lot of difference. Charlene has started to have her own style. We hope to continue to groom her. She has the potential to be a superstar. As for Gillian, before this incident, the impression she gave to people is a beautiful idol. Not much of a personality. But after this incident, a lot of people feel that she has changed. Including some of the company who wants Gillian. They like her current image. Now Gillian is very clever, brave and mature. I believe she will have her own style.
Reporter: So can Twins still continue?
Mani: Of course, for Gillian and Charlene, Twins is their support. Twins will not be disbanding. As their Manager, I firmly believe they can and will succeed.
