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.
“The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all.”
Disney has heard your wishes and cast Cfensi’s top choice for Mulan.
Hollywood Reporter reported that Crystal Liu Yifei has been cast as Disney’s Mulan. The film is directed by Niko Caro and set for a 2019 release. Liu Yifei is one of the most famous young actress in China, and is known for her graceful martial arts roles. Based on the casting calls, she will likely speak Chinese for a Chinese version and English for the English-speaking audience. The plot has been significantly changed, most significantly cutting out Mushu, replacing Shang with a fellow soldier, and resetting the story in the Tang dynasty.
I’m so happy for her and for the audience!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cool Liu Yifei as Mulan poster found online. cr:???
When designer Lawrence Xu puked rainbow unicorns over Liu Yifei and Yang Yang.
Liu Yifei is pretty much the definition of fairylike for me, and so I was so excited when she announced she’ll be playing a fox immortal in Once Upon a Time三生三世十里桃花. Unfortunately, even her and Yang Yang’s face could not savage the film’s undeveloped characters, zero chemistry, poor acting, and atrocious aesthetics.
The film opens as Bai Qian (Liu Yifei), a fox fairy that is 30,000-years-old, runs through the forest like fairies do and then enters a giant jellyfish carriage to attend a wedding. There we find out that the immortals have terrible taste in fashion, and Bai Qian finds a wandering child who speaks like Siri. Soon we learn that Bai Qian looks just like the child’s mother, and the child’s father is her betrothed (Yang Yang) . What a small world!
It’s hard to criticize this face, but it’s about the only thing going for the film.
