Dramas usually release a plethora of goodies on Chinese Valentine’s Day, and this year is no exception. Which shows are you looking forward to most?
Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace – Zhou Xun, Wallace Huo
Zhou Xun and Wallace Huo’s Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace has confirmed a premiere date of August 20th!
Despite all the controversies surrounding this drama, I’m still pretty excited to see the final product. The ~88 episode drama will air 2 episodes on Tencent every Monday-Thursday and VIP members will get a 6 episode head start. No plans have been made for its broadcast on television.
Actresses Ni Ni, Hai Qing, Yang ZIshan, Mei Ting, and model Bonnie Chen brings us to their childhoods in Nanjing in this series of photos by Nanjing-born photographer Yin Chao.
The Rise of Phoenixes tells of the heart-wrenching romance between the descendants of two royal families who are destined to become enemies, and the political machinations that are bound to push them further apart.
Starring Chen Kun, Ni Ni, Zhao Lixin, Ni Dahong, Yuan Hong, Wang Ou and Bai Jingting, the 70 episode drama airs daily on Hunan TV beginning tonight. Raw episodes will be uploaded by Croton, and it may also appear on Netflix US.
Thanks to variety shoes Idol Producer and 101 , there’s once more popular boybands and girls outside of TF boys again. Here are some recent MV’s from some of the bigger ones, including Rocket Girls, NEXT, Awaken-F, Sing girlband, and a few solos from Nine Percent and M.I.C. boyband. .
On the girl group side, Chinese-styled EDM group released their latest single Night of Music 夜笙歌 with inspirations from Southeast China. I wish they would release a MV for “Accidentally Time-travelled to Ancient Times一不小心到古代” because that’s probably my favorite song from them after 寄明月.
Themed Martial Hero, this photoshoot by Yu Cong for the architecture magazine Wallpaper is easily my favorite so far of the year. The photos feature model-actress He Sui and disciples and architecture from the Shaolin Temple (in case you’re wondering, although you can become a monk there, most people there are disciples studying martial arts and not monks).
Like their carefully choreographed martial arts, I love how each person is so well choreographed into their surrounding yet seems to be performing their tasks flawless in every photo.
