Sun Li, Deng Chao to romance each other onscreen in upcoming period film

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 WarComing Home) can work his magic this time round.

Ruby Lin with giant pizza

林心如: 這麼大!是想逼死誰[馋嘴][馋嘴][馋嘴]

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?

唐嫣: 今天你们都吃了什么口味呀?[色][馋嘴][耶]

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?

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.

Gao Yuanyuan, as posted by Mark Chao

HERO趙又廷: 別差評了 this is my wife

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 releases trailer

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.

More stills below the cut and trailer here.

杨幂: 欢迎你,糯米米

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?

turbosun: 爸爸妈妈去早教给等等报名,手续都办妥,老师问小孩的名字要做登记,我回答道:等等。老师说:喔。然后过了很久老师又问道:请问小孩叫什么?我们又答:等等……老师说:噢…………这小孩的名字麻烦?我们答道:就叫等等呀。老师顿时一脸黑线

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.
