  1. Well don’t know if anyone here heard the news a while ago – SARFT has banned underage/ kids from appearing in reality shows or TV interviews so that means no Daddy where are we going or Daddy return home for this year :(

    Sigh I know that they put forward some valid reasons but it always seems to me that whatever Hunan makes popular, they ban. Seriously did the higher up management in Hunan do something to CCTV/SARFT bosses? it always seems to be them that is targeted.

  2. Question: anyone know why the story before Wang Kai’s in Foxes of Azure Hill- the Hu Si one got cut so abruptly? Like they literally cut at the halfway climax point.

  3. Hi there! I just discovered this blog and it’s great :) I work at Viki and would love to get in touch with anyone. We have several of the Chinese dramas (Chronicle of Life, The Three Heroes and Five Gallants, The Imperial Doctress) which have been covered recently on CFensi. I’m happy to share more updates! Thanks and look forward to hearing back.

    • Hi Dee! Thanks for reaching out to us at Cfensi. You are always welcome to chat with us here, but if it’s something more private, let me know and we can set up a better way to communicate.

      It’s awesome to see that Viki is picking up more Chinese dramas. Some of the Cfensi staff have participated in Viki projects before, but unfortunately, a lot of us don’t have the time anymore. But keep up the great work!

  4. Did anyone watch Xiao Wu’s last 天天向上 episode? I legit cried 😢 I can’t believe it’s been… 8 years since his debut 😲

    • Oh my god, me. I cried and cried and then rewatched it because I couldn’t handle the fact that he is going to be gone for two years. Those clips of his hesitant Chinese in his first few appearances and how grateful and sweet he was (and still is!) almost killed me. He was so young and small, too. And when he started crying, I started ugly crying.
      I saw on Weibo that he filmed an episode of Radio Star. Hopefully can find it with English subs somewhere once it comes out!

  5. hi can you please know what is the title of Crystal Zhang’s new drama? I saw some gifs in weibo and its really funny and set in a historical period..thanks :)

  6. I just saw a tale of three cities… Kind of boring, but in the end when I saw who their child was and who the movie was about and maybe “true” I was like OHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  7. Good news. Hunan TV and the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union have agreed to create a competitive song contest for all the Asia-Pacific region. The name of the contest would be “ABU TV Cup Song Contest”. I hope that China will participate in that event, sending a well known singer.
    It would be a very exciting event, because all the state broadcasters of every asian countries could participate.

    • It’s a pitty that china had withdrawn this year from the ABU TV Song Festival. I hope that this new competitive event by by the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting union, China participates. Jason Zhang or Chris Li Yuchun, deserve to be selected for that contest.

      • I’ve found a video compilation about how woluld be a Chinese national final for the ABU TV Cup Song Contest. I wonder if CCTV and Hunan TV will organise something like the swedish Melodifestivalen?… I’m excited about this event.

    • The ABU TV Cup Song Contest is due to premiere in 2017 and there are more than 40 countries elegible to participate. I would like that this festival was something like this. In my opinion, China should organise a big national final to select the chinese entrant.

      • More good news about this event. The Australian broadcaster SBS has signed an exclusive contract in which they will adapt the Eurovision Song Contest to the Asia-Pacific audiences. It’s still unknown if this project will be merged into one with the ABU TV Cup Song Contest, which will be co-organised between the Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union and Hunan TV

  8. omg i just discovered that many users on this website used to be the users on youtube that used to upload chinese dramas before they were all deleted.

  9. Yang Yang confirmed as the male protagonist for the Three Lives movie with Liu Yi Fei. I know Ye Hua is meant to be young and I love Yang Yang but I still think he is a little to young and fresh for the role. Ye Hua is meant to be very boss like and I don’t think he can pull it off, I was hoping the rumour of Eddie Peng was real.

      • He’s the crown prince of the heavens. Think more along the lines of cool CEO who is quite powerful and isn’t warm to anyone except his son and the main female.

        • That’s kind of similar to the character Yang Yang played in Whirlwind Girl, which I think he pulled off pretty well. (Except his character there was not really rich or powerful.) I think as long as he’s styled appropriately, he should do okay.

          • I didn’t watch whirlwind girl so I’m not too sure. At the very least this movie will be visually appealing with all the eye candy in it (and apparently the team that were involved in making Avatar)

            • I’m sure Yang Yang and Liu Yifei’s faces will make me get through this movie. I really hope they get a good stylist and don’t try to go too Western on the outfits (cough, Ice Fantasy, cough).

            • I didn’t watch Whirlwind Girl, neither, but I think he should be fine for this role. He actually plays a kind of similar character in the video game realm of the drama with Zheng Shuang, and Yehua character has a babyface anyways. Plus. He and Liu Yifei probably have the single most pretty face for a male and a female respectively for me, so…

              • Agreed the visual aspect will hopefully trump the fact that they have to fit the entire storyline into less than 3 hours.

                Also more importantly, who will play the most vital character in the book – Little sticky rice? I imagine if Yang Yang amd LYF ever did have a kid, the kid would be absolutely adorable and beautiful.

  10. OMG The Disguiser is being subbed on VIki!!! Finally! i almost gave up the hope of English subtitle but now i just can’t wait for people’s comments on it !

  11. Man all the chinese students are really changing how my home towns china town looks. It used to be all cantonese. Then all vietnamese. Now a lot of sichuan and northern restaurants are popping up. Same thing for the new city I am in. Almost have an ok choice for hot pot.

  12. Hi, I heard about the upcoming movie 爵迹 LORD: Legend of Ravaging Dynasties, directed by Guo Jingming & was wondering what you all think of it? I know a lot of the Cfensi writers are Tiny Times fans..
