jjss08 joined Cfensi in 2011, and will stay with Cfensi until she finds a method of time-traveling other than drama-stalking. She has an unhealthy bias for ancient dramas and pretty people in pretty clothes.

Photoshoot Friday: Nostalgia


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

Photoshoot Friday: Dad?

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

Zhen Huan ages up for the American release


The Legend of Zhen Huan is coming to the United States next year – you would think that there’d be more than enough material to cut a 76 episode long drama into 6 pisodes, but actually, Sun Li was recently spotted in Beijing, filming an extra segment for the show. What do you think – how well would a historical epic like Zhen Huan do in the United States, in your opinion?

Photoshoot Friday: Ready to leave summer?

Isn’t Li Bingbing adorable in this picture (and it’s so summery/almost fall looking, too!)? It’s from her latest photoshoot for Grazia, look under for more. Zhao Wei really shows off how good jewelry can look as she dazzles in red for Bazaar Jewelry, while Alan wants to vie for the title of the snow queen in her frosty photoshoot. Xu Dongdong wears tulle white, and If you needed any more preparation for winter, look at Gao Yuanyuan prepping with white plumes.  Continue reading

Photoshoot Friday: August 29, 2014

Yao Chen makes me think that cloudy beaches might be more perfect than sunny ones – but then, Li Xuedong turns up a heat not long afterwards, revealing that the 17th prince has a pretty nice set of abs. Meanwhile, Minna Yang (Huang Rong for the upcoming ROCH 2014) goes for our favorite newspaper look ( “black, white, and red all over”). Gillian Chung looks much more sophisticated than she does in Ancient Sword in her photo shoot here, while “her” pet kitten Zhang Yunlong (from the same drama) is quite manly, even in a butterfly covered blouse. Also, Kai Ko plays basketball with a baseball cap on in his photo shoot for Elle Men (probably the last for a while).  Continue reading

Liu Shishi plays twins for upcoming movie Five Minutes to Tomorrow

“Did you, because of my face, fall in love with her…or did you, because of her face, also fall in love with me?”

One would hope that Liu Shishi‘s next dual role in a production would be better than her last (Bu Bu Jing Qing. Kudos if you can name another production she played “two” characters in). In her next movie Five Minutes to Tomorrow, adapted from a Japanese novel, Shishi plays a pair of twins who fall in love with the same man (Joseph Chang). Meanwhile, the apprentice watchmaker played by Miura Haruma – who lives to the rhythm of a watch that’s always five minutes late – is attracted to the two twins because of an unexpected occurrence. While vacationing outside the country, the two sisters get into a car accident, and only one survives. But who is it that really returned to the side of the man they love?  Continue reading

Liu Yifei as princess for Outcast

“What will I do when i can’t learn how to act before I get too old to play generic vase characters/token asian love interests?”

Crystal Liu Yifei plays a Song dynasty princess, daughter of a deceased emperor, (she’s got Andy On as her brother) in their upcoming movie Outcast. Pay attention, though – this movie, about crusaders in ancient China, also stars Nicholas Cage and Hayden Christensen. The movie will be released in China on September 26th, and will be released in America (?) in February. It’s an English language film, but Liu Yifei is still Liu Yifei. Look below the cut for more pictures.  Continue reading
