About jjss08

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.

Gao Yuanyuan and Nicholas Tse star in upcoming movie “But Always”

Nicholas Tse and Gao Yuanyuan provide more pretty in one still than some dramas in forty episodes.

If If you liked My Ol’ Classmate with Lin Gengxin and Zhou Dongyu, you may also be interested in Gao Yuanyuan and Nicolas Tse’s upcoming movie But Always 一生一世. Joining the cast are Tong Dawei, Happy Camp’s Du Haitao, and Suet Lam.

Gao Yuanyuan’s An Ran and Nicolas Tse’s Zhao Yongyuan (his name is literally Zhao “Forever”) have a love story that plays out from 1972 to 2001. Their childhood friendship evolves into romance when they see each other years later, and although Youngyuan climbs from being a simple worker to becoming a successful entrepreneur, he continues to follow and protect (from Beijing to New York) his childhood friend. (The stills hold up to this promise so far…) The movie will be released on September 5th.  Continue reading

Stills released from the Making of a Beauty

This, and the first picture below the cut definitely qualify as one of my favorite Tang dynasty stills recently.

Did upcoming drama The Making of Beauty take a leaf from Empress Wu Zetian‘s book – er, bamboo scrolls? Yang Rong look stunning in these recent stills, in which she plays a courtesan (who ends up going bankrupt at the beginning of the series. You can read more about the plot summary here).  Don’t be fooled by her appearance here; she’s (supposed to be) a very tough lady.

Longtime Yu Zheng favorite Yuan Shanshan has s cameo in this series. You can see her opposite her love interest, a general played by Luo Jin, after the Yang Rong stills below the cut.   Continue reading

More stills from the White Haired Witch (of Lunar Kingdom)

Fan Bingbing and Huang Xiaoming could be in a (fairly effective) Ming dynasty advertisement for pajamas.

There’s more stills of Fan Bingbing with white hair below the cut, plus a few more stills of pajama-advertisements (…kissing). Look for more pictures depicting her character’s love-hate relationship with Huang Xiaoming‘s male lead (and a water-fight, yay!) below.

The music video for theme song Beautiful Woman, White Hair, sung by Leslie Cheung, is a tribute to his 1993 version over twenty years ago (though the clips for this one are taken from the new one).
