Beauty Private Kitchens releases stills

Lesson learned. Always aim for high quality production because in case the drama ends up waiting a few years on the shelf, at least it won’t look too bad when it comes out.

Zheng Shuang and Ma Tianyu‘s Beauty Private Kitchens has released more stills.  I guess they are trying to draw interest to this drama after both leads having dramas recently airing.

With high-qualitied productions like Shaolin and  Storm of Prophecy, Zhou Yiwei seems to be en route to stardom this year.

Managing to be serene and action-packed at the same time, The Great Shaolin 少林问道 continues to stand in a league of its own with the release of the opening and an insert song MV below. The series stars Zhou Yiwei , Guo Xiaoting, and Guo Jingfei, and airs on a land channel tomorrow (aka we might never see it in HD). You can watch it live here at 7 p.m. Beijing Time every day beginning May 30th.

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 and Wang 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 write for the screen to save her life.  If anything, it’s only 15 episodes, which hopefully means it’s faster-paced.

Those afflicted find themselves regressing into shadows of their former selves, unable to function in daily life above getting themselves into trouble and falling over at the most inopportune moments.  Other possible symptoms include miraculous survival of deadly encounters to prolong their suffering and chronic bedtime PTSD…

Department Six, starring Raymond Lam, Dilraba, Alex Fong, Ying Haoming, Guo Ruixi, Huang Wenhao, He Zhonghua, and Li Dongheng, has released more stills.  After seeing these stills, I have to say I seem to be feeling a bit better about this drama.
