Ni Ni gets magazine shoots from these “big” magazines much more often than most other actresses…but really, who can blame them when she’s so beautiful? (My Ni Ni + beautiful campaign continues).
If you’re not convinced that Ni Ni is just as pretty in action as she is in these photoshoots, you could check out her new movie Waiting for the Wind 等风来 with Jing Boran online at Youku here. There, she plays a struggling journalist who is sent to Nepal because her boss changed the offer to send her to Tuscanny at the last minute; rather bitter over the difficulties she’s had fighting for her lot in life, she meets Jing Boran’s second-generation nouveau rich “young master.” (His father has kicked him out because an ex-girlfriend ruined his semi-arranged wedding).
Look for more Ni Ni pictures below the cut! Continue reading
The answer to fun, joy and laughter. *laughs hysterically*
With over 600 million views, Never Ever Expected (万万没想到) is one of the most successful online shows around. The mini-comedy drama is a collaboration with Youku and Wan He Tian Yi Company. Generally, each episode lasts for about 6 minutes. It is generally very funny (in a nonsensical way) and I thought it would be nice to introduce and share with you this production. Each episode is different but they have a few episodes dedicated to a special theme such as Chinese New Year. The starting song is very catchy and before you know it, you are actually humming it unconsciously!
Pst… She’s trying to tell Yu Zheng she would have made a better Xiaolongnv.
Despite a foot injury and other setbacks, The White Haired Witch Of Lunar Kingdom, starring Huang Xiaoming, Fan Bingbing,Yan Kuan, Vincent Zhao, Tong Yao, Li Xinru, Nicholas Tse, Wang Xuebin, has finally released a trailer. Screening is planned for April 25. Synopsis and stills below the cut.
You may have heard the four official Chinese versions or the 25-language version of Frozen’s “Let it Go”, but have you heard China’s latest trending version – the fanmade version compiled by 括号君 from netizens singing in a small sample of 26-dialects all loosely falling under Chinese ? Also I love the mainland film version of Love is an open door if you haven’t heard it.
How many versions can you understand?
Before we step into this week’s shenanigans, please consider holding a moment of silence for the victims of the March 1st Kunming attack, which left 29 civilians dead and 143 others injured.
I haven’t been able to find much information about providing aid, short of flying to Kunming and volunteering at hospitals there, which are still treating victims. For those of us who can’t do anything tangible for the situation, let’s follow Yuan Hong‘s advice:
Friends in Kunming, how are you doing? Those thugs are still at large, a reminder to everyone to be alert. May the wounded be safe and the decease rest in peace. As for us, try your best to remain rational and calm. Any negative or hostile moods from us are exactly what they, the ones who caused this massacre, wanted to achieve. The scars of hate carved by the devil brandishing a knife — only love can heal.
Fortunately, there is lots of love for this week’s round-up, starting with writer-racecar driver-director Han Han and his daughter.
Am I the only one who thinks Liu Shishi looks an awful lot like Yang Mi int his first still? Don’t look under the cut if you don’t like the color blue; there’s tons of it as Liu Shishi poses for Marie Claire in bright lipsticks. Shishi’s fans should be happy: her upcoming dramas include The Legend of the Moon and Stars, Happiness of an Angel, Bu Bu Jing Qing, Sorry But I Love You, and Incisive Great Teacher. Of these, Bu Bu Jing Qing and Incisive Great Teacher play her across her real life boyfriend Nicky Wu. Happiness of an Angel is a modern day drama piece about a single mother and an ailing daughter (the “angel”), with Ming Dao as her doctor-love-interest. Sorry But I Love You will star Liu Shishi against Wu Xiubo (Tiantian’s fan!), with Le Geng playing her childhood sweetheart and Wu Xiubo the boss at her new company.
A lollipop makes everything better.
If you don’t succeed once, try again. Several years after two non-hit modern musicals, Hunan TV is not ready to give up. Their latest musical series, Song of Battle 唱战记, will be yet another musical. The school-based musical will include over 50 original songs as well as many covers from coproducer ee-Media, the company best known for its music. The series stars Wang Yaoqing as a teacher seeking revenge, Qin Lan as the friendly sidekick, and Huang Yida, Chai Biyun, Fu Mengni, Ou Hao, and Xie Binbin as the students.
The posters are surprisingly bleak, but the leaked stills seem to make this still an energetic musical drama. More posters below the cut.
Lamborghini or Huang Xiaoming? Angelababy got both for her birthday.
Huang Xiaoming, Angelababy go official for her birthday when he surprised her with a new Lamborghini with him inside. It’s okay, Jo. You can take my place to cry in the bathroom after Wang Leehom got married.

I’m sad that none of these pictures have Cindy in them, but on the plus side, there are several with her parents, Tian Liang and Ye Yiqian. Angela Wang makes an appearance though, together with her parents Wang Yuelun and Li Xiang. Everyone’s favorite Shitou shows off how tough he is while he poses with father Guo Tao. Jimmy Lin looks smart in a suit – no Kimi to be seen, though. Zhang Liang‘s photo leaves us no doubt that he’s a model, with those long legs…But where’s Tian Tian? Having tea with Cindy?
Sorry, jjss08 is completely smitten with this series.
