Also, as a surprise guest, Mr. Donnie Yen, the international action star, appeared at the event.
While Donnie Yen plays tough roles on the screen, he is also known to be a family man in his private life.
This image of protecting the family matched the image that Sharp intends to build with its plasmacluster-equipped products, leading to his assignment as the image character of Sharp's health and environment business together with his wife.
