Yang Guo might end up being prettier than Xiaolongnü in the upcoming Return of the Condor Heroes adaptation…
Ben Affleck may be the next Batman, but guess who the next Xiaolongnü (Little Dragon Maiden) is going to be? Producer-screenwriter Yu Zheng finally announced who he’d selected to play the female lead in his upcoming adaptation of Return of the Condor Heroes (神雕侠侣). Amid heavy speculation that the role would go to Angelababy, Guo Biting, or even Yuan Shanshan, Yu Zheng decided on the one name no one would have thought of: Michelle Chen.
The revelation led to much criticism online. Although Michelle shot to fame after starring in the 2011 Taiwanese romance film You Are the Apple of My Eye (那些年，我们一起追的女孩), many netizens feel she lacks the physical characteristics requisite to portray Xiaolongnü. “The string on which Xiaolongnü sleeps will be crushed by her weight,” some wrote.
The hashtag “Yu Zheng, get out of the entertainment industry” soon became a hot topic on Sina Weibo, but like always, Yu Zheng has stuck to his guns. “I dare to guarantee that after Michelle’s costume photos are released,” he said in an interview, “no one will say she doesn’t look like Xiaolongnü.”
Now that the photos have been released (there’s another one behind the cut), you can take a look and decide for yourself. Does Michelle Chen fit your image of one of the most ethereal beauties in the wuxia universe?
Sun Li is as calm and composed as ever in a duo black-and-white and Chinese painting photo shoot for L’Officiel; even in modern clothing, she brings a touch of classicism with her poise. Fan Bingbing tries a different approach to keeping cools as she jumps into the pool, an early prelude to summer for Harper’s Bazaar. Meanwhile, actor and Central Drama Academy professor Zhang Xiaolong has found time in between the filming of the drama version of Bodyguards and Assassins for a photo shoot with Men’s Health.On the other side, Bai Baihe reminds you that chocolate is the most healthy food of them all for Women’s Day, you’ll want to watch out for her new movie A Wedding Invitation.
Despite being the main antagonist in idol drama Our Love and upcoming Hunan TV drama “Female Prime Minister/Legend of Lu Zhen, somehow it’s just so hard to hate the lovely Yang Rong. Look below the cut to see her, and the aforementioned celebs in this week’s round-up. Continue reading →

Liu Tao spends all but one picture in her shoot for OURS looking down, and Gao Yunxiang smolders by the pool – look below the cut for more pictures! Continue reading →
Guo Jingming may be super busy with directing the Tiny Times film, but he’ll never be too busy to post pretty pictures of himself on Weibo. Unfortunately, he might have to reconsider doing selcas, hehehe.
My arms are too short…. Originally, I wanted to take a photo with more of the scenery….
The two posing for their new drama Love, Love 恋了爱了
Sunday, April 7, actor Yan Kuan proposed to his long-time girlfriend Du Ruoxi before an audience of 500. (There’s a video of the event here.) Afterwards, he jubilantly weibo’d: ” 09, we met at the airport, your warm smile was deeply impressed on my heart. 10, it was negative eight degrees in Hebei, we warmed each other at the foot of the Great wall. 11, you hugged a little dog at a hotel in Yunnan while I took pictures. 12, in the hospital, I clutched at your hand in the hospital and we weathered the obstacles together. 13, today, you agreed (to marry me), thank you for your trust, this is my responsibility.I love you.”
Both cried at the scene. Du Ruoxi was speechless, but she weibo’d as well…”In that sort of situation, I became dumb, but I believe that you knew what I wanted to say was yes I do!!I Love you !!“
Why would Feng Shaofeng need to put on a mask in war and not me? I’m so much prettier.
An all-male photoshoot round-up? Don’t get used to it. But in this testosterone filled drama season, with the top dramas all being war/uprising dramas like the two Sui-Tang dramas as well as The Legend of Chu-Han, there are actually plenty of male photoshoots this time around. Photoshoots from Zhang Han, Yan Kuan, Jing Boran, Jia Nailiang, Zheng Kai, Chen Xiaodong, Huang Haibo and Han Dong in mostly black and white.
