The Legend of Chusen… not to be outdone with stills

Such nice backgrounds… but somehow we couldn’t find the money to make two different umbrellas…

Li Yifeng goes emo in The Legend of Chusen trailer

If ancient China had an equivalent of Hot Topic, I imagine they would sell clothes like this…

The Legend of Chusen 青云志, what we previously called Noble Aspirations,  has released even more stills and a trailer.  Starring Li Yifeng, Zhao Liying, Qin Junjie, Tang Yixin, and Yang Zi, after seeing some of the backgrounds the costumes look a bit less “mass produced” to me, especially after the trailer.  :)

Sparrow releases heart-wrecking MV

Picture13

Those trees and flowers in the background must be really resilient to the cold.

I can’t tell if Sparrow  is actually epic or if it’s just the BGM (last heard breaking my heart here). Still do not see a sliver of life in Li Yifeng’s eyes (he’s also the only one being dubbed),  but everyone else is beautiful even while crying, and I’m impressed by a couple of the shots.  Also, I can’t wait for  Kan Qingzi to get lead roles.

Li Yifeng, Yiyang Qianxi stills for Noble Aspirations

Apparently, clothes cleaning was a necessary prerequisite to join any of these groups so you can go on dangerous missions and still look immaculate…

Noble Aspirations 青云志 has released stills with backgrounds.  Stills of Yang Zi, Li Yifeng, and Yiyang Qianxi below. I know some of the costumes were starting to look a bit tacky but I feel like the backgrounds so far are working nicely…

Li Yifeng, Zhou Dongyu star in espionage series

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 11.39.13 PM

Even built-in English subs can’t make-up for a dubbed Zhang Luyi.

Set in the same time and place as last year’s hit The Disguiser, espionage series Sparrow 麻雀 released its first trailer today. This is both Li Yifeng and Zhou Dongyu’s first foray into the genre, and I have to say that Zhou Dongyu impresses a lot more than her co-star. Despite her babyface, she’s able to smile like an angel but cry with the pains of experience.  And of course, veterans Wang Jinsong,  Zhang Luyi and Li Xiaoran always bring their A-game.  The series co-stars Zhang Ruoyun, Kan Qingzi, and Yin Zheng.

Li Yifeng character posters for Noble Aspirations

So… I guess it’s fashionable this year for the male leads of fantasy dramas to dress like somebody died…

Noble Aspirations 青云志 has released more stills… what else is new.  Starring Li YifengZhao Liying, Qin Junjie, Cheng YiTang Yixin, Zhang Luyi, Wei WeiChe XiaoXiong NaijinYiyang Qianxi, Wang YuanWang Junkai, and Yang Zi,at least it seems like they are starting to move away from simple character stills… and this week, featuring what looks like a yellow-orange hanfu-poncho…
