I will shot someone if they don’t change the super misleading title. 

Daylight Entertainment has the best trailers.  They can build up suspense even where the actual series fails. Their latest work is detective series When a Snail Falls in Love 如果蜗牛有爱情 starring Wang Kai andWang Ziwen in their third drama together.  The trailer looks great as usual, with movie-leveled cinematography, actually decent action sequences, and some moments of cuteness injected in the midst of suspense.

The series is based on the book of the same name by author Ding Mo and directed by Zhang Kaizhou (two of the three people behind the spectacular fail of Love Me If You Dare). Luckily, the scriptwriter is not Hai Yan, who can’t for the screen to save her life.  If anything, it’s only 15 episodes, which hopefully means it’s faster-paced.

It defeats the purpose of masking your face if you ornament your hair in such a unique fashion…

The Legend of Flying Daggers, starring Hawick Lau, Yang Rong, Wu Yingjie, Huang Ming, Kenny Kwan, and Yuan Bingyan, has released even more stills.  Those looking for a wuxia drama can probably look into this one.

Sparrow releases heart-wrecking MV

Picture13

Those trees and flowers in the background must be really resilient to the cold.

I can’t tell if Sparrow  is actually epic or if it’s just the BGM (last heard breaking my heart here). Still do not see a sliver of life in Li Yifeng’s eyes (he’s also the only one being dubbed),  but everyone else is beautiful even while crying, and I’m impressed by a couple of the shots.  Also, I can’t wait for  Kan Qingzi to get lead roles.

Li Yifeng, Yiyang Qianxi stills for Noble Aspirations

Apparently, clothes cleaning was a necessary prerequisite to join any of these groups so you can go on dangerous missions and still look immaculate…

Noble Aspirations 青云志 has released stills with backgrounds.  Stills of Yang Zi, Li Yifeng, and Yiyang Qianxi below. I know some of the costumes were starting to look a bit tacky but I feel like the backgrounds so far are working nicely…

Seriously, guys, stop beating around the bush and either come out or stop taking advantage of the market while actually queer erasing your stories. 

Tangren’s latest production is still stuck on the Foxes of Azure Hills as two foxes leave the hills and join the palace.  Beauties in the Closet 柜中美人 stars Chen Yao and Hu Bingqing as the two foxes and Vic Chou  as the male lead/emperor. More character posters below the cut and here.

Anyone else get the feeling they just stole Yu Zheng’s costume designer and gave them a bigger budget for embroidery? Continue reading

Song of Phoenix releases female stills

Time travel was never easy… especially when you were an emo girl, suddenly forced to wear pretty pastel colors, and found you had to satisfy your urges with a hair pin…

Song of Phoenix 思美人 has released stills at long last and I have a developed a serious case of the gimmes.  Starring Ma Ke, Zhang Xinyu, Qiao Zhenyu, Yiyang Qianxi, Du Chun, Liu Yun, Lan Xi , Lee Hyunjae, Yin Zhusheng, Fu Yiwei, and Wang Yuelun, so plenty of eye candy to go around.
