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, Yang Yang, 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.)
So big! Who do you want to hound to death?
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.
What flavor [of moon cake] did you all eat today?
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, Deng Chao, Ni Ni, Feng Shaofeng, Bao Lei, and Lu Yi.
Happy 2015! A quick round-up this week — I expect that the next Weibo Wednesday will be several weeks from now, so enjoy your fill while you can.
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.
Don’t criticize her. This is my wife.
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.
We’re still waiting for a broadcast date for Ancient Sword, but in the meanwhile, Yang Mi‘s more romcom movies seem to be going well – Tiny Times 3.0 is slated to come out on July 17th, and her other upcoming movie with Deng Chao in the Break Up Guru will come out on June 24th. This will be Deng Chao’s first directorial work, adapted from a stage play of the same name. Asides from Yang Mi and Deng Chao’s main characters, you can also count on seeing Sun Li, Liu Yan, and Liang Chao in cameo roles. (Gulinazha should have a small role as well). Yang Mi plays a “leftover lady” (a Christmas cake) who makes a living selling DVDs; meanwhile, Deng Chao’s character lives off of women. They meet in an accidental “hero saves the damsel in distress” scenario, and from then on, embark on what is advertised as the “stupidest, yet most touching love story in history.” Look under the cut for some more stills!

What better way to start off this week’s Weibo Wednesday round-up than with pretty Hu Ge? An unofficial trailer for his upcoming drama Nirvana in Fire (琅琊榜) was leaked yesterday, and although the video doesn’t really reveal much (people flouncing! people walking! people darting around with swords!), at least it gives us some nice shots of Hu Ge.
Tomorrow Ah Su [Hu Ge’s character] is going to get sorted out by Lin Chen. Today, I hurriedly went out to get some fresh air. Medicine you don’t necessarily have to eat, but snow you cannot not appreciate.
