The trailer for supernatural Republican romance drama The Love of Hypnosis(previously Records of Nanyan Studio) features Liu Yifei as a mysterious perfume shop owner with a split personality. There’s the normal Lu Mansheng, and then there’s the second persona Ye Moluo, who seems to gain the upper hand in the latter half of the series, and has a love-hate relationship with male lead Ye Shen (Jing Boran).
Liu Yifei is a performer of all types – ballerina, acrobat, singer, and guitar player – for this photoshoot by Liu Zongyan (who did her awesome modern Wuxia and Mulan-like photoshoots). She has recently finished filming Nanyan Studio with Jing Boran and has been training in New Zealand for the live-action Mulan (if you don’t read the comments, the male lead has been cast and I’ve given up my last sliver of hope this movie knows what it’s doing).
Fantasy romance drama Records of Nanyan Studio (Southern Mist House) stars Liu Yifei (Hanson and the Beast) as Lu Mansheng, a woman who listens to other people’s love stories, and use her scents to give her clients a happy ending in their dreams (aka Republican version of City of Hopeless Love 华胥引). Jing Boran plays her love interest Ye Shen.
Records of Nanyan Studio has released pictures of its two leads Liu Yifei (Once Upon A Time) and Jing Boran (Monster Hunt 2), in character as the mysterious owner of a perfume shop who heals broken hearts and a member of a secretive organisation respectively.Continue reading →
One of the many cats (left in the second photo) that have been touched by the angel that is Liu Yifei
Actress Liu Yifei has been outed as an angel. For the past couple of years, she’s been running an animal shelter out of her own home for kittens. She takes stray cats in, nurtures and neuters them, and then find them homes. Liu YIfei even removed her brick fence after some cats got stuck in it.
Liu Yifei (Once Upon A Time) and Feng Shaofeng (The Starry Night, The Starry Sea 2) played Yu Ji and Xiang Yu respectively in White Vengeance, and will be starring opposite each other again in fantasy rom-com Hanson and the Beast 二代妖精.
Liu Yifei(Once Upon A Time) is returning to the small screen after 12 years, and will be playing the female lead in Records of Nanyan Studio 南烟斋笔录, an upcoming supernatural romance drama set in the early years of the Republic. Jing Boran(Love O2O) costars as her love interest.
As a part of her casting announcement for Disney’s Mulan, actress Liu Yifei released a photoshoot that is perfect for Mulan. The photoshoot shows her fighting side, but then has others that could easily be captioned “the flower that blooms last is the most beautiful of them all.”
Someone pointed out to me the outfit-pose combo is similar to the MCU’s Elektra, and now I kind of wish the execs could introduce her to the dudes next door and get her in the MCU.
