Upset over the coming finale of Ancient Sword? At least we’ve got plenty of more eyecandy from the cast. Some recent photoshoots from the “Handsome Uncle” Gao Weiguang and “Little Black Cat” Zhang Yunlong, both members of Yang Mi’s Workshop under H&R Century.
In a departure from the unexpectedly hilarious period comedy Cosmetology High, Luo Jin and Yuan Shanshan‘s chapter is a reversion back to the more conventional love tale, following Yuan Shanshan as the spoiled princess who decides to join the army for fun and falls for Luo Jin’s general. Unfortunately for the pair, the prince of a neighboring country wants to marry her, and she must seek cosmetology help from Yang Rong and Jin Shijia’s characters to fake a ruined face.
But this being Yu Shanshan, not only do the pair get better posters than the actual leads, they get the better theme song by Zhang Jie and their own mini-MV below:
This Photoshoot Friday is late, but…doesn’t Rhydian Vaughan make up for it? He’s in a shoot with Qi Xi. Also, there’s Zhang Meng and Du Ruoxi rocking the crimson lipstick, and Yang Rong looking adorable in all black. Zhang Xinyi is as stylish as ever, sporting various daring outfits; meanwhile, and Joe Chen is the “cute” type of retro (she has crimson lipstick too, oops). There’s also Yuan Shanshan in black and white, and Wang Fei (p.s, she’s kind of back together with Nicholas Tse?) making a magazine cover. Continue reading
Despite two blockbusters and two TV series showing this summer, Yang Mi has been off the radar the entire summer while giving birth to a baby girl in June. Only three and a half month later, she returns to the public eye for the Milan Fashion Show.
More photos of the actress for Sina below the cut, and a video of another shoot for Tencent here.
The film version of Cong Cong Na Nian 匆匆那年 is calling for English titles with a reward! Can you come up with a better English title for the Zhang Yibai film starring Ni Ni (#beautiful), Eddie Peng, and Wei Chen?
Since we’re on the subject, what are some of your favorite English translations? Least favorites? I nominate My Fair Princess, The Last Supper, and upcoming drama All Quiet in Peking for the former and Love Yunge from the Desert, The Journey of Flower for the latter.
Starring Mickey He and Li Yixiao in a drama about the turbulent Three Kingdoms that isn’t about the literary novel, Half for the People, Half for Beauties has released a set of character stills.
The drama follows the famous doctor Hua Tuo, a Chinese doctor famous for surgery and anesthesia. In order to help cure the governor’s daughter’s (Ming Xin) eyes, they travel searching for the anaesthetic mafeisan. During his adventures, he meets Guan Yu, Cao Cao, and and becomes embroiled in politics, including a drop by at the famous Battle of Red Cliffs.

Okay, it’s only fair that the Dads of Season 2 (or…I guess, just Lu Yi and Huang Lei) get a Photoshoot Friday for themselves. Except, look at who cameos at the end…!
Lu Yi and Bei’er are adorable for their Daddy and little girl photoshoot. Huang Lei and Duo Duo not only got to reunite with mommy Sun Li (not Deng Chao’s wife, you might know this Sun Li as Liu Yifei’s queen mother from Chinese Paladin) in the show, she also makes an appearance in the family’s photoshoot for Fashion Weekly – Duo Duo really strikes the model poses here. Personally, though, I like her photoshoot with Men’s Style more, where they dress her more like a little girl and not like a mini version of Lily (Tiny Times). Continue reading
As the first modern film produced by a big studio that stars both Uyghur artists, Yu Zheng’s latest film will feature newbies and all 90hou Dilireba, Merxat, Yang Chengwen, Gao Yu’er, etc… No news of the actual plot yet other than Twilight meets angels in a high school setting.
Because the actual title “Love Against the Light” sound too fancy for an obvious Twilight-imitating name, I’m debating an alternate translation of “Waxing Crescent” or “Gathering Dusk”. What are you thoughts?
