Did you know the choreography for their song was mostly designed by Bei’er?

When I grow really old, my parents still won’t be old. When I’m old, they’re only 11. When I’m their age, they’re only 4. When I’m 100, they’re only born, and then they’ll grow up and give birth to me again, and we’ll continue to live together.
Marry a prince
He Jiong: Are there any princes on Where are we going? Daddy?
Bei’er: My dad
Always be with the prince and my parents
I want my mom to say I have to wear long dress.
My hair to grow longer all the time and can’t even be cut
When I grow up, I can wear lipstick and climb mountains and go on Where are we going? Dad with the prince.
Chinese-Korean collab God of War: Zhao Zilong 武神赵子龙 released its first few stills hidden behind a New Year’s Greeting. The cast stars Lin Gengxin as Zhao Zilong, SNSD’s Yoona as made-up character, Gao Yunxiang as Lv Bu, Gulinazha as Diao Chan, Jia Qing, Kim Jeonghoon, and Zhao Hanyingzi.
I’m not sure how I feel about this at all given that the latest Korean collaboration has Zheng Shuang’s outfits looking like they came from Korea 300 years ago instead of Han dynasty China. …

Tibetan Buddhist monks join Han Hong on stage in this week’s I Am A Singer.
I Am A Singer, this year, is sponsored by Honda and Oppo. So the singers drive up in their Honda cars which totally look like the Jeeps from Jurassic Park, and unbox their new Oppo smartphones. They watch the introductory video for the newest contestant, Korean singer The One, but none of them know who he is. Obviously they didn’t watch the first season. For shame.
The One’s “manager” on the show is Xiao Wu, the Korean member of Top Combine. He does most of the interpreting for him. Let’s hop straight into it.
Don’t worry. The dinosaurs don’t start eating people until after Newman shuts down the park’s security system.
This time, Jane is singing a song that G.E.M recorded back in 2013. The similarities stop there, however. While G.E.M’s version was a demure, piano-only track, Jane’s arrangement features the whole band. Her voice harks back to her time on Super Girl. It’s powerful and free.

Hey everyone, thanks so much for the support for my last post. I’m way too unhealthily invested in this show, and I really need an excuse to spazz and discuss with people, so I decided to do recaps! If you guys like it, I’ll keep doing it for the rest of the season :D
I’ll start with this week’s episode 7, which coincides with the first episode of the second round competition.
Hoping to distinguish itself from all the other youth-themed films reminiscing on the innocence of youth and first love, this film by He Jiong instead going the Disney channel route. No longer will we see the young loves fall apart and meet years later only to find out the main girl has had an abortion (because seriously, birth control exists), but instead the young leads live out the fullest of their lives.
Daniel Wu cast in AMC loose adaptation of Journey to the West, Badlands. More here.
New York Times covers Liu Cixinhere. I feel like everyone in the English speaking world who covers The Three Body Problem has only read the first three chapters of it because they keep saying it’s set during the Cultural Revolution .
Following First Grade, Hunan TV might move on to a reality show/documentary about Middle Schoolers with its adaptation of British program Educating Yorkshire. More here.
