Feng Shaofeng, Chen Baoguo begin an empire in The Imperial Age

Finally, a Ming dynasty drama with expensive-looking costumes!

Feng Shaofeng plays the third emperor of the Ming dynasty in drama The Imperial Age 江山纪. He’s joined by Chen Baoguo as his father Zhu Yuanzhang, Ying’er as his empress, Chen Yuemo as his nephew, as well as Zhang Fengyi, Wang Jinsong, and Mickey He.  Director Gao Xixi (New Three Kingdoms, The King’s War)’s recent works have been a combination of hits and misses, but at least the costumes look amazing.

Mickey He drama releases trailer

… and what more could I have been expecting…

 

Mickey He and Li Yixiao’s Half for the People, Half for Beauties has released a trailer.  I just thought I would make a note in case anybody is interested in this production on Hua Tuo and a… ermmm… new take on the classic Three Kingdoms tale.

 

Mickey He becomes legendary doctor in latest series

After leaving Yu Zheng, Mickey He tries his hand at bringing legendary Chinese doctor Hua Tuo (seriously… some people worship him) to life.

Starring Mickey He and Li Yixiao in a drama about the turbulent Three Kingdoms that isn’t about the literary novel,  Half for the People, Half for Beauties has released a set of character stills.

The drama follows the famous doctor Hua Tuo, a Chinese doctor famous for surgery and anesthesia.  In order to help cure the governor’s daughter’s (Ming Xin) eyes, they travel searching for the anaesthetic mafeisan.  During his adventures, he meets Guan Yu, Cao Cao, and  and becomes embroiled in politics, including a drop by at the famous  Battle of Red Cliffs.

Mickey He poses around in a busy city, suave in suits.  Continue reading

Zheng Shuang is a guest star in this new drama.

Disclaimer: Zheng Shuang and Zhang Han are not lovers this time; my shipping goggles just automatically pair them together. (What can you expect when Zhang Han says things like, “If Zheng Shuang ever needed plastic surgery, then there are no beautiful girls“?)

Featuring Zhang Han, Mickey He Chen Weiting, Mao Zijun, Li Qing, Gui Gui, and Zhang Meng, the drama recently wrapped up filming. Look below the cut for loads of stills (a few of them couple stills) and a brief on the Zhang Han-Zheng Shuang interaction (in the drama)

So here, idarklight wanted to know if Zheng Shuang and Zhang Han would have a scene together in upcoming drama The Four. And the answer is… Continue reading

0938262209

Not to be lonely in ancient times, Zhang Han starts a new “F4” in the Ming dynasty.

Touting to be one of the best produced ancient series of the year, detective/romance series The Four 少年四大名捕 released its first trailer today.    In addition to clips of the leads Zhang Han, Mao Zijun, William Chan, Yang Yang, Zhang Junning, Jia Qing, GuiGui, and Hao Zijia, there’s also intros of the antagonists and guest stars Han Dong, Heaven Eternal Earth Everlasting lead Huang Ming, and Mickey He, Butterfly Lovers antagonist Ma Wenlong, Bounty Hunter lead Qin Yongchen, and Zong Fengyan.

New “The Four” begins filming, vying for best young cast ever

Can you match the backshots with The Four and the antagonist?

I think this might be my favorite cast of lead males ever for a mainland drama.

The Four are played by a string of rising male talents –  Zhang Han, Yang Yang(male) Mao Zijun and William Chan – while Yu Zheng  leads   Mickey He, Qian Yongchen, Ma Wenlong and Zhou Muyin play the antagonists. Given that at least four of those have succesfully been leads of their own, that’s pretty amazing.

The female leads are really varied as well, starring Zhang Junning (female),  GuiGui,  Jia Qing, Bai Bing.  I’ve always thought Jia Qing was the prettiest out of all the gorgeous girls in “Schemes of Beauties,” so I’m especially excited to see her again.

Guest appearances from Tong Liya, Zheng Shuang, Han Dong, Ye Xuan, Huang Haibing, etc. I wonder if Zheng Shuang and Zhang Han will have a scene together?

Li Sheng and casts celebrates Chinese New Year

704_893106_957721

When the 4th Prince and his granddaughter teams up for a new drama …

Li Sheng is celebrating Chinese New Year all over the place, first with Mickey He for currently airing drama Qing Cheng Jue Lian倾城绝恋 , and then with her new cast of Roy Qiu, Myolie Wu and Mao Zijun for currently filming drama Wine Beauty 美酒俏佳人. It’s rare for a mainland actress to be the lead with a really famous HK/TW actress as the supporting actress, so while I actually do like Myolie, I’m pleasantly surprised.
