Zhaoge 朝歌 released more stills. Starring Zhang Zhehan, Bao Jianfeng, Lin Youwei, Wu Jiayi, and Liu Mintao, a production video has also been released for those interested.
More below the cut.
A Tale of Two Phoenixes 凤囚凰 is preparing to start filming. Based on the novel of the same name by Tianyi Youfeng 天衣有风 and produced by Yu Zheng. He has stated that Yang Rong and new actor Merxat will be playing the leads Chuyu and Rongzhi respectively, though knowing Yu Zheng, anything can change.
More character designs below the cut and (WARNING!) spoilers at the bottom of the post.
Those who miss Yu Zheng‘s productions are in luck. Zhaoge 朝歌 has started filming. Starring Zhang Zhehan, Bao Jianfeng, Lin Youwei, Wu Jiayi, and Liu Mintao, the artwork so far looks fantastic but I guess with all Yu Zheng productions, we’ll have to wait until the final product to see if it suits your personal tastes.
(Warning!) Potential spoilers below the cut.
Yu Zheng has released character stills, a trailer, and theme song to the second installment of his internet spin-off of his palace series. Watch as Zhang Zhehan, Deng Sha, and Liu Xin take on fox demons, time travel, the Han dynasty, sorcery, and modern times. Watch and be left scratching your head thinking “gee… I think I’ve seen that same scene in that one movie/drama…” This series releases on December 15th on Tencent QQ’s video platform.
Link to theme song here. More stills below the cut.
Who knew that Chen Xiao could sing so well? I think I’m starting to be touched by Chen Xiao’s
undying love for fanboying Liu Xin, or maybe just his voice. The Chen Xiao-Liu Xin duet, as well as more of the OST from Chen Xiang, Michelle Chen, and Zhang Jie, below. The series premiers Wednesday night on Hunan TV.
As the first modern film produced by a big studio that stars both Uyghur artists, Yu Zheng’s latest film will feature newbies and all 90hou Dilireba, Merxat, Yang Chengwen, Gao Yu’er, etc… No news of the actual plot yet other than Twilight meets angels in a high school setting.
Because the actual title “Love Against the Light” sound too fancy for an obvious Twilight-imitating name, I’m debating an alternate translation of “Waxing Crescent” or “Gathering Dusk”. What are you thoughts?
Cosmetology High (formerly the Making of a Beauty) is a surprising mix of humor and even some creativity, a refreshing change from producer Yu Zheng. The trailer also confirms my suspicion that Yang Rong is amazing and deserves better roles. The series co-starring Jin Shijia, Zhang Zhehan, Merat, and guest-starring a lot of pretty people airs on Sundays beginning next week.
Now that Fan Bingbing’s White Haired Witch (of Lunar Kingdom) has been broadcasted, Yang Rong can take a shot at the title. Featuring Jin Shijia, Dilireba, Kenny Kwan, Kristy Yang, Li Xin’ai, Luo Jin, Sheren Tang, Su Qing, Wang Li’ke, Yuan Shanshan, and Zhang Tian’ai, Yu Zheng’s upcoming production The Making of a Beauty continues to release stills.
Laure Shang Wenjie performs the theme song (listen to it on Youtube here) for the drama, “Waiting for Waist-long Hair 待我长发及腰 (wait for my hair to grow to my waist).” (Zhang Jie is supposed to sing another, Listen 听).
Incredibly, this drama (which began filming this July), will be broadcast on Hunan TV every Sunday…beginning September 7th!? in Paranormal Adonis’ time slot (source). More stills below the cut. Continue reading
