The new trailer for Great Exectations 远大前程 focuses on second generation mob bosses Huang Jinrong, Du Yuesheng and Zhang Xiaolin, played by veteran actors Ni Dahong(Intrude the Widow Village at Midnight), Zhao Lixin (Chinese Style Relationship) and Liu Yijun (Lost Love in Times) respectively.
Rather than the story, it was Tong Liya’s poster that caught my eye.
If it’s not already obvious from the title, Patriot 爱国者 focuses on the story of a loyal Communist agent and later guerrilla fighter, played by Zhang Luyi (The Devotion of Suspect X), as he weeds out all the enemy spies. After the Japanese invade Manchuria in 1931, he takes on the identity of legendary hero Yan Hongguang, and continues to defend his homeland until death.
Tong Liya (Heartfall Arises) plays his comrade and love interest, while Lu Fangsheng(Tribes and Empires) plays a carefree policeman by day, and a secret agent by night.
The 50 episode drama is directed by Gong Zhaohui (Royalty in Blood) and written by Wang Hailin (Murder at Honeymoon Hotel).

I love how Daylight Entertainment just reveals the leads in one go.
Nirvana in Fire: The Wind Blows in Changlin琅琊榜之风起长林 has released posters for all its main actors, which include Huang Xiaoming (Mission Milano), Liu Haoran (Detective Chinatown) and Tong Liya (Run for Love) among others. The drama will be split into two seasons, and each one will have 15 episodes.
Please excuse me as I take a trip down memory lane…
The Golden Eagle Awards is a prestigious biannual television awards ceremony, and prides itself on being “the people’s award”. Unlike the Flying Apsaras Awards (government recognition) and Magnolia Awards (industry recognition), Golden Eagle spreads the love more evenly, and usually several dramas and actors are acknowledged.
In previous years, the Best Actor and Actress of the night were decided by online voters and a panel of judges, and presented with the Audience’s Choice award (golden statue) and Best Performing Arts award (crystal statue). This year the two awards were given to different actors, with the nominee that received the most votes from the judges winning the Performing Arts award.
A belated Happy Chinese New Year to all of our beloved Cfensi readers! Who else stuffed themselves silly with delicious food? It looks like Ruby Lin did too, although I hope y’all had better food than pizza. (I mean, no offense to pizza, which I love, but it just can’t compare with good Chinese food.)
The designer of some of these costumes clearly went through the fabric section at JoAnn.
Tong Liya’s period comeback releases stills… and a trailer!! Our prayers have been answered. Glory Hallelujah!! Love Without a Trace stars Tong Liya, Yang Shuo, Tong Dawei, Peng Guanyin, and Guan Yue. I was having doubts about the costumes at first but seeing them in motion is definitely restoring some confidence.
idarklight is getting her wish – Tong Liya will be taking on another costume drama this year. “Love Without a Trace 爱无痕” features Tong Liya and Yang Shuo as the leads in a Five Dynasties Ten Kingdoms-era romance, with a guest appearance from Tong Dawei, and actors like Peng Guanyin and Guan Yue in supporting roles. Look below the cut for more pictures!

He gave up business for warfare, becoming enveloped in political machinations, but who could have foretold that in winning “all under heaven,” he lost the heart of his lover? Lianxing is unable to understand his idea of “using battles to end battles”; meanwhile, his actions sowed enmity made an enemy of his good friend Zhang Junxiang…
