Loosely based on Jiu Yuexi’s In His Youth, In Her Beauty, the new film from Derek Tsang (Soul Mate) is titled In His Youth 少年的你, and focuses on the issue of schoolyard bully and its consequences. Zhou Dongyu (Us and Them) plays model student Chen Nian, and Yi Yangqianxi (currently seen in variety show Phantacity 2018) costars as phys ed student Bei Ye, an outcast at school who becomes a good friend of the heroine.
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.
Actress Zhou Dongyu goes makeup-free (but not PS free. It is a Chen Man photoshoot, after all) in these two photo shoots.
The actress has two upcoming films- April 28 release Us and Them opposite Jing Boran and June 28 release Animal World opposite Li Yifeng.
Rene Liu’s directorial debut Us and Them 后来的我们 stars Zhou Dongyu (Thousand Faces of Dunjia) and Jing Boran (Monster Hunt 2) as two strangers who fall in love after meeting on the train when travelling back to their hometowns during the Spring Festival holidays.
Teasers: (1), (2)
Li Yifeng, Michael Douglas, and Zhou Dongyu star in Han Yan’s weird semi-futuralistic game of rock, paper, and scissors in Animal World 动物世界. Other trailers here and here.
Holiday lights light up actress Zhou Dongyu in her new photoshoot. Her latest film, the Thousand Faces of Dunjia 奇门遁甲, is currently airing, and she’s currently filming a youth film with Jing Boran.
It’s been ages since I last saw a Chen Man (and Zhou Dongyu) photo shoot that I liked. This is the second set to be released from the collaboration between Harper’s Bazaar Movie and The Thousand Faces of Dunjia. Female lead Ni Ni’s shots can be found here. Continue reading
The Thousand Faces of Dunjia 奇门遁甲 is an upcoming wuxia comedy set in a chaotic fantasy world overrun with demons and spirits, and will follow the exciting adventures of a group of young martial artists, played by Dapeng (Dong Chengpeng), Ni Ni, Aarif Rahman Lee and Zhou Dongyu.
English-subbed teasers and BTS (playlist):
The new coming-of-age drama is titled Ten Miles of Spring Scenery Can’t Compare to You 春风十里不如你 and stars Zhang Yishan (Yu Zui) and Zhou Dongyu (Love & Life & Lie) as medical school students growing up in 1990s Beijing.
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.
