Tony Leung joins Bai Baihe, Jing Boran in Monster Hunt 2

Monster Hunt was a commercial success when it premiered last year, and now a sequel starring original trio Bai Baihe (I Belonged To You), Jing Boran (Love O2O) and cute white radish Hu Ba has started filming. This will be Tony Leung’s (The Grandmaster) first comedy in 14 years, and it’s likely he will be playing the main antagonist.

Li Yuchun wins MTV-EMA World Act

Li Yuchun with Katy Perry, who won Best Female, at the  MTV EMA

“Why Me? Because I’m Chris Lee.”  –    Li Yuchun with Katy Perry, who won Best Female, at the MTV EMA

Reminding everyone that she would win the president of the world election if her  fans were allowed to vote,  singer  Chris Li Yuchun recently won the MTV EMA World Act, beating other nominees such as One Direction, Justin Bieber, and Exo with over 100 million votes in three rounds of fan voting. Congrats, Li Yuchun!

You can watch her at the Award Ceremony on Youku here.  Also, MTV,   Macau is crying for being left out in “Mainland China/HK/TW/SE Asia.”

eeMedia Family’s Winter MV

The thrice previously posted on eeMedia MV for their 2010 theme Kuai Le Chu Fa – has been released!  It was composed by Top Combine’s Ma Xueyang, which I imagine is cheaper for eeMedia than last year, where they hired Da Zhang Wei (the flowers) to compose, and frankly I like Ma’s better. It suits its purpose – it makes you want to start bouncing around while you put up holiday decorations.

Baby Jie grows up and moves out

I think this may be a Watercube replica that she's holding, but it also might just be tofu. It also might be tofu in the shape of the watercube.

What’s the difference between one and four?

In the first year of their stardom, Chris Lee and He Jie, once best friends from the Sichuan Music Conservatory, won 1st and 4th respectively in Super Girls.

Four years later, March 2009 –
For her birthday, Chris Lee held her annual Why Me concert in Guangdong with soldout tickets and a sea of yellow.

Two weeks later, on He Jie’s birthday, He Jie announced that she would leave EE Media.
Why such different outcomes?

In honor of He Jie, the cute “Jie Baobao”, and both myself and Cfensi’s favorite Supergirl alumni, this is a look into eeMedia’s flaws. Btw – don’t take anything out of here without also posting its companion piece coming soon.

This is the performance that drew me into cpop. Hopefully, He Jie’s musical dreams are only hibernating and will make a comeback soon.

CCTV’s Spring Festival Gala has become one of the symbols of the Lunar New Year in China and one of the most extravagant shows that CCTV puts on every year. Jay Chou’s performance was probably the most anticipated event of the night. It consisted of three generations of singers – folk singer Song Zuying, Jay and 9-year-old genius Hou Gaojunjie- singing a blend of Song Zuying’s “Spicy Girls” and Jay’s “Herbalist Manual.” Apparently, singing with Song Zuying has been a dream of Jay.

Update: Jay also said that he has already invited Song Zuying to sing in a duet with him. He says he wants to compose a duet just for her.
