hblnln1

If I do end up watching this drama, it would be for Wang Likun.

Martial Universe 武动乾坤, the upcoming fantasy drama starring Yang Yang (I Belonged To You) is the latest drama to get embroiled in a public casting shakeup. Zhang Tianai and Jin Chen were initially slated to play female leads Ling Qingzhu and Ying Huanhuan respectively, though it was announced today that Zhang Tianai will be taking on the role of Ying Huanhuan instead, while Wang Likun (Somewhere Only We Know) will play Ling Qingzhu.

“Saving General Yang” Releases Posters, Stills, and New Trailer

The real reason everyone wants to see this movie. (But how come we don’t get to see any of the other brothers like this?)

After releasing an international trailer last year, upcoming war movie Saving General Yang (忠烈杨家将) recently released a grittier new trailer, along with promotional posters and stills. The film, which is based on the legend of the Yang family, in which the seven sons brave death to rescue their father, will air on April 4th, which I find depressingly appropriate.

As expected, the trailer is full of fighting and killing and yelling and horses. On average, the crew had to use about 500 horses each day when they were filming. Check out the trailer below, as well as more stills behind the cut:

Chinese Celebrities When They Were Young

I said I would do a special fun post in exchange for someone making my banner when site hit 10,000. Well, here it is as promised, although nobody ever made me a banner. :( This is still incomplete…I don’t have a few people in here, and I wanted to put an after pic of everyone, but I got way too tired of that so I only put some for some people I didn’t think people would know (like all the mainland guys apparently), but eventually I will update this and make it the most comprehensive Chinese celeb baby picture list ever.

Love or hate her, you’ve got to admit Liu Yifei was one of the most adorable children ever.

More of cute adorable children behind the cut. I think it’s really rare for Chinese people to do plastic surgery (as of now) so this won’t be one of those “spot the differences” posts. This took a lot of time and effort to put together, so PLEASE DO NOT COPY AND POST ANYWHERE ELSE, w/o permission.
