Character posters have been released for Secret of the Three Kingdoms 三国机密之潜龙在渊, the drama adaption of Ma Boyong’s novels of the same name. Starring Ma Tianyu (Beauty Private Kitchen), Han Dongjun (Chinese Paladin 5) and Wan Qian (Glory of the Tang Dynasty), it focuses on the power struggle between Emperor Xian of the Han Dynasty and powerful warlord Cao Cao (Tse Kwan-ho).
Joining the January marriage/wedding club are Tong Liya, Chen Sicheng, who held their wedding this Wednesday in Tahiti. The couple met and started dating during the filming of Beijing Love Story, for which they were the leads and Chen Sicheng was the director and scriptwriter. More photos from the wedding below the cut.
While the leads of The Condor Heroes are getting all sorts of hate, the rest of the cast still get pretty stills. The latest set released are of name-changed Yan
Yikuan as Wang Chongyang, the founder of the Quanzhen Sect, and Dong Xuan as Lin Chaoyin, the founder of the Ancient Tomb Sect of the main character XiaoLongNv. The pair of star-crossed lovers has a rather beautiful love story, which you can read more about here.

Actress Dong Xuan 董璇 celebrates the tenth year anniversary of her fan club Whirlwind 璇風 (Xuan Feng), with a few lucky fans in this MV titled Ten Years. Currently, the actress is filming Heroes and Heroines of Shanghai and The Condor Heroes.
Laure Shang and Zhou Xun aren’t the only ones who can sport technicolor hair. Dong Xuan is prettily whimsical as a purple-head in this shoot for Bazaar, occasionally joined by a long-haired Gao Yunfan (her husband). I want to describe this look as Bohemian; which one is your favorite? Look under the cut for more stills. Continue reading
Since Dong Xuan‘s marriage to fellow actor Gao Yunxiang in August of 2011, she only had a guest appearance in the popular Beijing Love Story 北京爱情故事. The newlywed also starred in a drama about a pair of newly married couple in Mother-In-Law is Mother 娶了媳妇不忘娘 in early 2012.
Dong Xuan will be making her return with two Early Republic Dramas. She will star alongside Lu Yi in Scarlet Golden League 血色金盟, to be aired sometimes this year. And she is currently filming Heroes and Heroines Battle Shanghai 英雄儿女战上海 in which she plays a magician.
Bride-to-be Zhang Xinyi was gorgeous in lace and feathers for Modern Bride; she and Zheng Leipai‘s sweeping dresses help create a sort of Gothic theme for this round up. Qin Lan has a pixie cut with threads of red and blue, and Dong Xuan looks surprised in her almost gloomy set. Zhang Jingchu, with her role in upcoming movie The Switch, is confident against red lacquer, and Shu Qi adds a few more long dresses to our collection of fashionable gowns. I’ve always thought hat Eddy Peng had the cutest baby face, but he really exudes a new type of maturity for Milk.
Perhaps most exciting of all…look at the end of the shoot for a little surprise regarding Yao Chen. It must be significant if Bazaar gives her three covers for it. Look below the cut for more pictures. Continue reading
In this batch, actress Chen Shu takes on Bazaar magazine and sports a light veil throughout most of the shoot. In the second feature, actress Dong Xuan (Unbeatable) goes nicely retro; look below to find more stills. There’s also a still from one of Tong Liya’s recent photoshoots. I’m not quite sure what the point of that one was, unless it was to prove that yes, she does eat. Her other shoot, where she promotes an online game, is a fluorescent blue, but much nicer.
After being spoiled by her mother-in-law for the past few months, Li Xiaolu (AA Living) finally gave birth to a 6.78lb little girl. Hubby Jia Nailiang (The Most Beautiful Times) broke the news on weibo:
Jia Nailiang: The little princess I’ve waited endless days and nights for has finally arrived in this beautiful world. I just want to say, being a mother is not easy; we’ve waited for this blessed moment for such a long long time, staying by her through the whole journey, the complexity of my current emotion is hard to put into words. My beautiful wife, you are so strong, so courageous, (about the baby I think) clenching your hands, the look of weak and helplessness in your eyes… Lulu, Little Princess, I love you! Thank you for everyone’s well wishes, the three of us will continue to live happily ever after. (Translated by SJZGloria) Continue reading
