Stills have been released for the upcoming historical romance drama Nothing Gold Can Stay 那年花开月正圆 starring Sun Li (Legend of Mi Yue) as the richest female merchant of the Qing Dynasty and Chen Xiao (Three Heroes and Five Gallants) as her love interest.
The success story about Qing Dynasty’s richest female merchant is titled Nothing Gold Can Stay 那年花开月正圆, and stars Sun Li as the main protagonist Zhou Ying. The female-centric story should be familiar territory for the actress, who was most recently a powerful Empress Dowager in Legend of Miyue.
Congratulations to the big winners of the night!
The Magnolia Awards is held in conjunction with the Shanghai Television Festival, home to one of East Asia’s biggest television markets. Magnolia Awards is recognised as one of the most prestigious television awards alongside the Golden Eagle and Flying Apsaras, though it cannot seem to make up its mind on the number of categories (the current format began last year).
Full list of nominees, winners and red carpet pictures are below the cut.
Sun Li looks like she stepped out of a French painting in this gorgeously stunning photo shoot for L’Officiel. I never knew that a backdrop of fish could make Sun Li look like she was flying. Look under the cut for more pictures. Continue reading
Have you ever seen anyone as stylish as Sun Li when you visited the supermarket? She’s adorable in this new shoot for Grazia, buying and trying out different breads. Look below the cut for more pictures. Continue reading
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, which (or who) is the cutest of them all? Sun Li cuddles with a different dog (or a different set of dogs) in each of these adorable photos for Modern Lady.
P.S. jjss08 is not that great at identifying dog species, so whoever can identify the dog types in the comments will be the real MVP. Continue reading
Sun Li returns, with more clothes that beautifully blend into the background (I love the dress above the cut, though the dress with handdrawn pictures would be harder for most people to pull off in public). Look below the cut to see more pictures. Continue reading
It gets a little hard to differentiate between the coats and the carpets in this photo shoot from Sun Li, but I don’t mind – the actress is still stunning. Look below the cut to see more pictures. Continue reading
The Legend of Miyue has a couple more antique stills as it nears the end of its broadcast. Starring Sun Li, Liu Tao, Huang Xuan, Jiang Xin, Ma Su, Gao Yunxiang, and Alex Fong, the drama has picked up pace near the end but I still feel there are problems with this drama that keep it from being what it could be.
More stills below the cut.
The Legend of Miyue has certainly been the next “it” drama, despite my worries about another scheming-heavy drama following Nirvana in Fire. Starring Sun Li, Liu Tao, Huang Xuan, Jiang Xin, Ma Su, Gao Yunxiang, Alex Fong, etc., I was also beginning to worry about how this drama seems too similar to The Legend of Zhen Huan with the three males interested in the female lead, being about the harem, having repeat cast members, etc. but I feel that the story development and characters have developed in such a different way as to make such comparisons a bit unreasonable. Here’s to the developments thus far… and this gem I found in what seems to be the beginnings of another series of memes and parodies of this drama.
