They better use Xianzi’s real voice for singing because I miss her voice so much.

Peter Ho may not be the best-looking actor, but he has great taste in actors for his own productions.  His latest drama, Beautiful Secret, features Victoria SongXianzi, and Wei Qianxiang, and Shao Yuwei in a drama about singing competitions.   I hope Xianzi sings a lot of songs for this.

Finally, a male timetraveller! I thought those became extinct in 2011 when Gong and BBJX came out.

For all my love of  female leads, it’s kind of exciting to finally get a male protagonist in a timetravelling internet novel adaptation, partly because all the female leads  used their knowledge to juggle princes rather than  the world.   Croton Media (Boss & Me) and Juxin Media is set to adapt  Braveness of the Ming  锦衣夜行, and has released its concept posters today, announcing its cast of Zhang Han, Park Min-young (City Hunter), Jones Xu Zhengxi, and Wei Qianxiang. Zhang Han would’ve been my top choice for this role, the rest of the cast is pretty,  and Croton has never failed me yet,  so I’m definitely psyched.
