Shadow 影 will be real-life married couple Deng Chao(The Dead End) and Sun Li’s (Legend of Mi Yue) third film collaboration, after Mural 画壁 and Devil and Angel 恶棍天使. Those movies were quite disastrous, so here’s to hoping Zhang Yimou (The Flowers of War, Coming Home) can work his magic this time round.
“I’m not immune to anger, pain or grief. It’s just that I don’t speak about the imperfect and shameful things.”
I Belonged To You 从你的全世界路过 is a romance film adapted from Zhang Jiajia’s popular short-story collection, and features an ensemble cast made up of Deng Chao, Bai Baihe, YangYang, Zhang Tianai, Yue Yunpeng and Liu Yan. It is also the latest project from notorious producer and director Zhang Yibai (Never Gone, movie version of Love O2O).
A belated Happy Chinese New Year to all of our beloved Cfensi readers! Who else stuffed themselves silly with delicious food? It looks like Ruby Lin did too, although I hope y’all had better food than pizza. (I mean, no offense to pizza, which I love, but it just can’t compare with good Chinese food.)
During this past round-up, our favorite celebrities celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival (aka the Moon Festival) and got up to some other shenanigans. Kicking us off is Tang Yan and her picture-perfect moon cake. She’s currently filming the movie Bounty Hunter (赏金猎人) and will follow that up with the drama The Princess Weiyoung (锦绣未央). As always, keeping busy.
Harper’s Bazaar teams up with Kindle to remind you to read because all the cool kids do it. Cool kids include Li Bingbing, Han Geng, Su Mang, Huang Xiaoming, Gao Yuanyuan, Liu Yifei, DengChao, Ni Ni,Feng Shaofeng, Bao Lei, and Lu Yi.
Mark Chao used the last few hours of 2014 to post a photo of his wife, Gao Yuanyuan. The couple officially got married at the end of November. Also of note is that Mark’s post was #1314 on his Weibo, which is significant because “1314” sounds like “all my life” in Mandarin.
LIu Yifei’s character is called Heartless, by the way. You can add this image to your collection of ironic pictures.
The Four 3, the final installment to the film series, has released a trailer as well as announced its release date on August 22. Starring Deng Chao (Cold Blooded), Liu Yifei Heartless), Collin Chou (the hot-blooded “Iron Hand”), Ronald Cheng (whose role Life Snatcher was previously held by “hotties” like Wallace Chung and Peter Ho), Anthony Wong, Jiang Yiyan, Alec Su, Wu Yingjie and Bao Bei’er, this film picks up from the abrupt and tragic end of the previous. Presumably, it will bring to a close all the untied ends from the last two films with flurry of CGI.
If you could figure out whose hands those were without looking at the watermark, major kudos to you! On June 1, Yang Mi and Hawick Lau welcomed a baby girl into the world. The couple has nicknamed their daughter “Little Sticky Rice” since she was born just one day before the Dragon Boat Festival, on which it is traditional to eat zongzi, which are made of sticky rice.
Welcome, sticky rice
Hawick posted on June 1 to update the world on Yang Mi’s condition and wish everyone a happy Children’s Day. (Yes, their kid was born on Children’s Day.) He later reblogged Yang Mi’s photo and added, “Always stick to Daddy and Mommy like this, all right?” Getting emotional already, eh?
With great power comes great responsibility… especially when you’re deciding on your kid’s name. Sun Li shared a funny story about when she and husband Deng Chao registered their son for school. Keep in mind that “dengdeng” means “wait” or “hold on.”
Dad and Mom went to the early class to register Dengdeng. The procedures were all completed, and the teacher asked what the child’s name was in order to register it. I replied, Dengdeng. The teacher said, Okay. After a long while, the teacher asked again, May I ask what the child is called? We answered again: Dengdeng… Teacher: Oh… is this child’s name very troublesome? We replied: He’s called Dengdeng. The teacher’s face immediately got marked by black lines.
Yes, their kid’s name is Deng Dengdeng. Makes you wonder what Sun Li, who recently showed off her baby bump in a photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar, is going to name her second child.
And according to idarklight, gymnasts Yang Wei and Yang Yun named their son Yang Yangyang (and will be appearing on Happy Camp this Friday!). It looks like this is more of a nickname, though, thank goodness.
