(Disclaimer: The views expressed in this post are jjss08′s, and not Cfensi’s.)In response to my own question…because he still manages to make money off of those other adorable adaptations he makes. Regardless, this means that I will be in a corner crying while he makes another mockery of history, filming for his new drama Song in the Clouds (adaptation of Tong Hua’s novel. Btw, its prequel Desert Melody still hasn’t been passed by SARFT, partly due to history fans who’s been calling SARFT every day to protest it.) has recently begun. The cast was finalized, with Chen Xiao playing Liu Bingyi and Su Qing playing Xu Pingjun…actually they aren’t the main characters. They’re just my historical favorites (historically speaking).Angelababy will play the actual lead, (Huo) Yunge and Lu Yi will play Liu Fuling, her romantic interest #1, with Du Chun playing Meng Jue, love interest #2. Yang Rong will be playing Huo Chengjun, the evil daughter of Huo Guang (spoiler alert!) who probably would not have been able to be so evil in history, given the fact that she was thirteen when Liu Bingyi became emperor and just sixteen when her mother poisoned Xu Pingjun.
Evidently jjss08 is very hung up over this. The cast is fine – better than Mickey He for Liu Bingyi, of course. And no Yuan Shanshan for Yunge, I suppose.
Also, idarklight is mourning at the fact that the designer for this is the one who did “Beauties of the Emperor” and not the one from “Schemes of a Beauty,” so even the clothes won’t be authentic.
Almost 20 years since her passing, is Teresa Teng still the best Chinese singer?
Last week, Liang Huan 梁欢, who is probably a man, compiled a list of Chinese singers on her his Weibo, allocating points in increments of five, alongside some brutally honest criticism (e.g., Jolin Tsai: “dance moves accompanied by bad vocals”). Since then, her his post has been retweeted—or the Weibo equivalent—tens of thousands of times. Some fans, notably those of Han Geng, have derided the low scores of their idols.
Actor Ke Zhendong (Ko Cheng) recently got an opportunity to pose for both ELLE and Marie Claire; his newest movie, “Together” with Angelababy, Donnie Yen, and Michelle Chen will be released two days before Valentines Day (on the 12th). He will also be working with Yang Mi for the movie version of Tiny Times, Look below the cut to see more! Continue reading →
I can’t tell if the tears in my eyes are because of the boys, or that giant logo blocking them.
The 2007 Super Boys, probably the group of Supers with the most brotherhood, reunites once more after over 5 years. Through these 5 years, they’ve survived fires, run away and disappeared, got married, had a kid, and even went to jail. Watch the video below, with either interviews or performances by all of them but Su Xing. I think it’s really warming how almost all of their individual songs were written by themselves or another Super Boy.
Deng Jiajia reassures her mistress that their drama is really finally being broadcast.
Having been filmed in 2010, the drama Romance of the West Chamber has finally started broadcasting. (Though three years isn’t really that long – Yang Mi’s Great Qin Expressway was filmed in 2007 and didn’t come out for some five years, and I’m sure that there are others that waited longer.) For a detailed summary of the traditional plot, you can go look at Wikipedia here; for what the stills that have been released make it out to be, know that it will involve Deng Jiajia as Hong Niang (the maid turned matchmaker) looking more refined and well-off than most young ladies; Zhang Xiaocheng as the romantic young scholar (there aren’t many high quality stills of him, but he is youthful and serious looking enough), and Zhou Qiqi as the young lady who could also pass for a ball-jointed doll. Deng Jiajia’s Hong Niang will also get her own romance story with Qi Ji‘s general Du. Look for stills portraying a very close lady-and-maid relationship below, or watch the trailer. (As a heads up, the pictures below are predominated by Deng Jiajia and Zhou Qiqi).
Mega-hit movie “Love is Blind 失恋33天” continues its quirky feel in the upcoming drama of the same name, with a cute trailer about the “Four Seasons of Love” featuring supporting leads Zhang Bo and Shen Jiani. This particular trailer shouts “Central drama” to me, and I love how they did such an unconventional trailer.
Vacation? Why would you want to go on vacation, when home’s like this?
There weren’t any guys in the last photo shoot round up, so to balance that, here’s a post with just a guy. Below, enjoy Huang Xiaoming for a photo shoot with CG. The actor will be sharing a role with Chow Yun-fat in the upcoming movie Da Shanghai 大上海, set in the Republican-era. The movie will follow the life of the leader of a gangster mob from approximately 1920 – 1930. Continue reading →
