Who doesn’t want a Forbidden Palace X themself themed gift?
Lu Han has the best fan memorabilia ever and I’m beyond jealous. With a theme around deer (Lu 鹿 means deer) and reading, the collaboration with designer Wu Tong takes inspiration from books from the Royal Library as well as architectural accents from the Forbidden Palace.
The collection includes a pencil case, a six-sided stamp that doubles as a necklace pendant and a incense burner, a paperclip, a bookmark, a journal, and envelopes with designs from the Royal Library.
恋爱先生 Mr. Right comes from the writers behind last year’s To Be A Better Man, and stars Jin Dong (Surgeons) and Jiang Shuying(variety showDivas Hit the Road) as a bickering couple. Like all rom-coms, they’ll progress from enemies to friends and then lovers.

As one of the few time-travelling novels where the lead actually acts like she’s from the modern era and is intent on changing the social order versus being caught in a love triangle, this is definitely the ancient idol drama I’m most looking forward to, and the trailer doesn’t disappoint. Princess Agents特工皇妃楚乔传 stars Zhao Liying, Lin Gengxin, Shawn Dou, and Li Qin, and tells of Khaleesi Chu Qiao’s quest to abolish slavery in ancient Western Wei.
