InSecret of the Three Kingdoms, Liu Ping (Ma Tianyu) is a secret prince who was raised outside the palace with Sima Yi (Han Dongjun). His twin brother Liu Xie, the last emperor of the Han Dynasty, summons him back to help save the country as the ambitious warlord Cao Cao (Tse Kwanho) begins to amass even more power.
He is helped by empress Fu Shou (Wan Qian) and Sima Yi, though the latter eventually decides to serve Cao Pi (Tan Jianci) to further his own ambitions. The 54 episode drama will air 2 episodes every Tuesday to Thursday on Tencent beginning tonight.
Weird out by how brother-like the M.I.C. boys were, Wu Xiubo signed Tan Jianci and Xiao Shunyao on the spot to play his sons.
Wu Xiubo was such a big fan of his family in TheAdvisor’s Alliance that he signed management deals with all the main male characters. That’s right, in addition to Wang Dong (who plays his brother and who you might remember opposite Dilraba in DiamondLover), Wu Xiubo’s two sons in the series – M.I.C. boyband’s Tan Jianci and Xiao Shunyao- now have acting management deals! Don’t worry, they’re still managed by Taihe music-wise.
During the press conference for the drama on June 8th, Wu Xiubo said that they had looked at many actors for the role of the brothers, but none of them had chemistry with each other. Watching Jianci and Yaoyao eat before their audition, Wu Xiubo was struck by how close they were. “Even by looking from the side, the way they ate and interacted with each other were so much like real brothers. I thought it was so strange,” Wu said. He then gave them a script to read and hired them on the spot. So happy to know that M.I.C. still loves each other (especially given the recent Top Combine fallout).
Following playing Sima Zhao, Jianci stars as the Emperor to the Sima family, Cao Pi , in Tangren’s new Three Kingdoms drama. Meanwhile, post his Sima Shi gig, Yaoyao is currently filming an idol drama with Fan Shiqi.
Congrats, boys! Now please go record your group album already. IT’S BEEN FIVE YEARS.
A kiss for you, a kiss for you, a kiss for all my sons!
It seems like Tangren (nicknamed ‘Poor Tang/穷唐’) has been investing more money and effort into their costumes lately…
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).
I’m pretty sure no other boyband in China could pull off this song live. gif cr:Yama Dandan
After two years forever, M.I.C. boyband finally came back as a group for Only One. The gorgeous future bass r&b song is once again produced by themselves. This song is so much better than I expected, and really shows how much they’ve matured musically. It perfectly shows off their perfect voices (Yuehan and Yaoyao’s voices won my heart in this song). Even the MV is so clean and beautiful and not filmed while they’re drunk in a club.
The song will be released as a part of their album SOLO, which will be the gift item of their photo book. My inner Chinese music industry fan died a little on the inside when I read that, and then pre-ordered two copies of their photo album in retail therapy even though I never buy photo albums.
But all the perfection of their voices and faces aside, the real question is … Does Tan Jianci have a U.S. driver’s license or can we blackmail them with this MV? Continue reading →
