Yes, it’s that time again. Welcome to another version of one of the most adapted mangas in Asia – Hana Yori Dango / Boys Over Flowers / Meteor Garden .
Helmed by producer Angie Chai of the original Meteor Garden, New Meteor Garden 新流星花园 recently announced its cast of the four male leads, members of the clique F4. There’s no news on who’s who yet. The four male leads – Connor Leong, Dylan Wang Hedi, Darren Chen, and Caesar Wu Xize – average 21 years old and are all fairly new actors. The female lead is Shen Yue, whose first major drama is only airing this week.
Will the new cast get instant famous like every other cast so far?
Female lead is played by 20-year-old Shen Yue in her second major role.
What Did I See In You 看走眼 is the last of Xianzi’ adorable MV’s, a surprisingly chirpy song scolding her playboy boyfriend (who irl is her husband’s former roommate).
Here’s a throwback to singer Xianzi, known for her distinct vocals and cute songs back at the peak of Taiwanese mandopop. The Guangxi native has since then moved back to the mainland and got married to ex-Top Combine member Li Mao . Unfortunately she now seems to mostly be singing boring Tan Xuan OST’s.
Presenting Chang Chen, an actor who looks gorgeous when he is all broody. His upcoming movies Forever Young (with Zhang Ziyi, Huang Xiaoming and Wang Leehom) and Savages (with Liao Fan and Ni Ni) have yet to secure premiere dates.
Watch Hebe Tian and Jing Boran in their rendition of the classic Beauty and the Beast theme song for the upcoming live-action film. The translations are very non-literal and almost sounds more like a translation of Sun and Moon, but at least they both look gorgeous. Also, if you haven’t heard, Disney’s live-action Mulan is set for a Nov. 2018 release date and is expected to begin filming in April. No news on Sony’s version yet.
Sword Master 三少爷的剑 will be releasing on December 2nd. Directed by Derek Yee and produced by Tsui Hark, this production stars Lin Gengxin, Peter Ho, Jiang Yiyan, Jiang Mengjie, and Jiang Yiyan, not too much longer now.
Yes… because we all know the spray tan was invented during the Song Dynasty…
