Weibo Wednesday: April 8, 2015

Funnily enough, since our last round-up, Weibo got a huge boost in Western media when BuzzFeed writer Matt Stopera blogged out about how Chinese netizens helped him find the man who ended up with his stolen iPhone. The story is pretty long, but it’s a good read for anyone who likes a dose of bromance. C: Everything else in this round-up seems pretty tame in comparison.

Kimi Qiao with giant bear plush

乔任梁: 福利来啦、送你们、、熊孩子[害羞]

Kimi Qiao with a giant bear! He and Cruel Romance costar Huang Xiaoming recently showed up on Happy Camp, which ended up being one of the highest-rated episodes in recent years. You can also catch him romancing actress Xu Lu in the upcoming reality show, We Are in Love (我们相爱吧), a.k.a. the Chinese version of We Got Married.

Benefits are here! Sending you all… a little devil [literally, a bear child].

Zheng Kai dressed as Baymax

郑恺: 是时候告诉你们真相了…

Zheng Kai is secretly everyone’s favorite Baymax from Big Hero 6. (●––●) He has a college-graduation movie with Michelle Chen coming out at the end of the month, titled Young For You (年少轻狂), which aims to break away from other similarly themed “youth” movies.

It’s time to tell you all the truth…

Xu Jinglei in self-designed dress

鸡毛蒜皮与鸡毛蒜皮: 人生中第一条自制裙子!好歹给它做出来了!![哈哈][哈哈][哈哈]虽然糙了点吧……[嘻嘻][嘻嘻][嘻嘻]please call me 天才!

Actress-director Xu Jinglei shows off a dress of her own creation. Looks better than anything I could make, that’s for sure.

First self-created dress in my life! In any case, I got it created!! Although it’s a little coarse… please call me talented!

Peter Ho posing with advertisement of himself

何润东: 他怎么会在这儿?!他是站在这儿收保护费的吗?

Peter Ho did some hilarious poses with a shirtless advertisement of himself in Taipei. He’s currently in Shenzhen filming the drama Beautiful Secret (美丽的秘密) with Victoria Song of f(x).

Why are you here?! Is he here to collect bodyguard fees?

William Chan is a certifed lady killer

William威廉陈伟霆: 終於得到認可証了….

The Four (少年四大名捕) actor William Chan brought out proof that he is a certified lady killer. I don’t think that’s going to win you any brownie points with Zhao Liying‘s dad in The Legend of Zu (蜀山战记之剑侠传奇), my dear.

Finally received proof of acknowledgment…

Wang Leehom's creative exercising

王力宏: 自創的運動方法[哈哈],你們也有嗎?

Wang Leehom gets creative with his exercising. He and wife Lee Jinglei were recently spotted vacationing in Japan.

Exercising method I came up with myself. Do you all have one too?

Tian Liang shared a funny story about his daughter, Cindy Tian Yucheng, and her devious way of getting her little brother to drink his medicine.

Sister and brother always catch the cold at the same time. It’s always been harder getting younger brother to take his medicine, and he didn’t even want to drink this time when his sister was with him. She said, “I always get better after taking medicine and going to sleep. Are you going to drink or not?” He shook his head. Then she said, “If you don’t drink it, then I’ll drink it, and when I get better, Daddy and I will go out and play tomorrow. You don’t want to go?” Younger brother grabbed the medicine and drank it up, and almost drank his sister’s as well.

And last but not least, on April 7, hurdler Liu Xiang announced his retirement with an essay looking back at his 19 years as an athlete. At 31 years old, he plans to finish up his education, as well as help out in advancing national health and the physical education of Chinese youth. Best of luck to him and his future endeavors!
