Zhou Dongyu modeling the Asian flush

Zhou Dongyu is way too cute in this ad  for Rio (that colorful, fruity cocktail you see in every other drama).  She recently wrapped up acting in Behind the Scenes 幕后之王 with Luo Jin.

Sparrow releases heart-wrecking MV

Picture13

Those trees and flowers in the background must be really resilient to the cold.

I can’t tell if Sparrow  is actually epic or if it’s just the BGM (last heard breaking my heart here). Still do not see a sliver of life in Li Yifeng’s eyes (he’s also the only one being dubbed),  but everyone else is beautiful even while crying, and I’m impressed by a couple of the shots.  Also, I can’t wait for  Kan Qingzi to get lead roles.

Li Yifeng, Zhou Dongyu star in espionage series

Even built-in English subs can’t make-up for a dubbed Zhang Luyi.

Set in the same time and place as last year’s hit The Disguiser, espionage series Sparrow 麻雀 released its first trailer today. This is both Li Yifeng and Zhou Dongyu’s first foray into the genre, and I have to say that Zhou Dongyu impresses a lot more than her co-star. Despite her babyface, she’s able to smile like an angel but cry with the pains of experience.  And of course, veterans Wang Jinsong,  Zhang Luyi and Li Xiaoran always bring their A-game.  The series co-stars Zhang Ruoyun, Kan Qingzi, and Yin Zheng.
