I thought it couldn’t get any worse when Yu Zheng decided to make Lv Zhi and Xiang Yu lovers…but he continues to shock us all. No doubt inspired by Love Across Time, Yu Zheng is also putting together a “story within a story” drama (sans the time travel). Welcome to Love, Up in the Air 云巅之上, where Yuan Shanshan is an aspiring actress (Jian Xi) pitted against Chen Xiao’s cocky A-list celeb. (Oh yeah, she’s also looking for her birth mother in Beijing).
According to the synopsis, archaeologists find the grave of Dong Xian in 2016, and within it, the truth behind Emperor Ai of Han’s “passion of the cut sleeve.” A famous director reads about the findings and decides to film a movie based off of this story, selecting the big name Tang Fei (Chen Xiao) and the new face Jian Xi (Yuan Shanshan) to play the lead roles. Tang Fei is a guy; Jian Xi is a girl – how do Dong Xian and our meta-story come in? Continue reading
Zhao Wei is gorgeous in this forest-themed photoshoot by Chen Man. Continue reading
Yang Mi seems geared up for summer in her new photoshoot for Elle, but mostly, she seems ready to exercise. Zhang Xinyu, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to want to get out of bed. Zhao Wei and Xu Lu show off crisp blue backgrounds (though for separate photo shoots), and meanwhile, Liu Yuxin dresses in pastels and red lipstick. My personal favorite from this round up, though, would have to be Lu Yi’s stroll in the rain. Look below the cut for more pictures! Continue reading
A photoshoot Friday that is on time?!
Ni Ni is so photogenic it almost hurts (#Cfensi, # Ni Ni, #Gorgeous + Beautiful). She and Angelababy will be co-starring in the Chinese remake of Bride Wars, which is supposed to be released on August 20, 2015.
Question: Do you think Ni Ni would look good in guzhuang (ancient styled dress/hanfu)? We already know she stuns in cheongsam/qipao (both traditional and modernized), but how would she look in other period dresses? Continue reading
Liu Yifei has the same expression in three out of the five photos here, but she still looks fairly young, so I think she’ll be able to get by playing emotionless flower vases for a while yet. She’ll be playing a lawyer in her upcoming film The Third Type of Love (adapted from a novel of the same name, following a television adaptation that starred Zhang Xinyu). Look for more gorgeous pictures under the cut – the flowers definitely evoke spring! Continue reading
