Tsui Hark, show them how it’s done!!

The New Dream of the Red Chamber Trailer and Photoshoot

Li Qin (Young Xue Baochai), Jiang Mengjie (Lin Daiyu), and Yang Yang (Older Jia Baoyu) in InStyle

Even though there have been many trailers already for The New Dream of the Red Chamber, the previous ones tried to only convey an moody ambiance. This new trailer actually had dialogue, and shows off the beautiful camerawork and sets. The total costs of production for the 50-episode  series reached 118 million yuan (for comparison, even the elaborate sets of  The Message cost around 50 million yuan), but the producer, sounding much more confident than in previous reports, said that the costs should be definitely recoverable.

This post has about two and a half photoshoots of up and coming actresses. Why the 1/2? Well the above of Yang Mi and Liu Shishi (from Chinese Paladin 3) was for Nv You (Girl Friend). Unfortunately the only picture of them from the magazine was the one of the cover, and I can’t even find outtakes. Too bad, but if you want to see pictures of them being girly and bffs, you should check out the post of them vacationing in Egypt with Hu Ge/Yuan Hong/others ( even if you already saw it, I added more pics)…
