Press conference for the cast of A Journey through Time with Anthony

Another star-turned-producer and this time it’s Zhou Xun (Painted Skin, Red Sorghum). It’s based on a novel of the same name, A Journey through Time with Anthony, written in the form of a diary by Anthony as he detailed his life during the ages of 20-23 as a newly graduate being shipped to study overseas, where he gains perception of life and grows as a person. The titular role is handed to top model, Liu Chang, as his movie debut and his leading lady is a face frequently seen in theaters this past few weeks – Bai Bai He (Monster Hunt).

Does the premise remind some of you of a Japanese movie?

The Journey of Flower (Hua Qian Gu): Episode 21 – 24 “The Alternatives.”

I know I’m slow, if only I were a robot, recapping would be a breeze! So let’s keep spoilers from future episodes away from this post (we can discuss book changes, of course!) Last recap was really fun, thanks to everyone who chimed in. The discussion was lively and I think we all learned a thing or two, even if we are on different shipping camp. It’s okay to think differently than others (it is after all subjective), as long as we keep the discussion polite and respectful, I think we can make it to episode 54 without losing anyone. Lol. Let’s promise that you guys will watch and suffer with me through this arduous journey because the death count is officially on and you never know when your favorite character is on the chopping block!

Jerry Yan and Chen Qiao En cameo in youth movie Our Times

It’s been a long time since I squee this hard over the stills of a movie alone. SO MUCH CUTENESS abounds in this upcoming Taiwanese youth movie, Our Times, starring a wagon of fresh faces in a story we are well acquainted with in recent cinema trend – the highs and lows of emotional upheavals during those teenage years (here it is the 1990s), enhanced by prickly hormones and physical body changes. HA. At this point, Jerry Yan, Chen Qiao En, and Andy Lau‘s cameos are just icing on the top because the real stars are the sprouting seeds ready to blossom!

Zhu Yi Long and Viann Zhang in drama adaptation of Bordertown Wanderer

Good for you Zhu Yi Long, taking on another project. Bordertown Wanderer is one of Gu Long‘s novels, sequel to The Little Li Flying Dagger and first part of the Flying Dagger trilogy. Remember Wallace Chung’s The Magic Blade? Yep, this is another remake of the same story. Why? I don’t know. While I’m happy for Yi Long, it’s his leading lady, Viann Zhang, that got my attention in the stills. She is stunning, a flawless skin tone, enhanced by beautiful tailored costumes. It’s hard to look away.

Drama adaptation of Ice Fantasy confirms William Feng and Victoria Song as leads

Another novel-to-drama adaptation. The novel, Ice Fantasy, is written by Guo Jing Ming. The name was so familiar to me so I googled him and it turned out he’s not a new face at all. Lol. He’s the small-framed screenwriter and director of the Tiny Times franchise, who’s also accompanied Yang Mi on various red carpets. Apparently, Kris Wu’s name was attached to this project two years ago and now the production company, Shanghai Youhug Media (Prince of Lan Ling, Divorce Lawyers, and Lady and the Liar), has confirmed the leads in William Feng and Victoria Song. Funny enough, the two are currently filming My Best Friend’s Wedding, a movie with Shu Qi, which I wrote about in batch 15 of Cnews. I’m happy to have William back to the small screen but Victoria’s name didn’t stir the same excitement in me. But I’ll remain positive since the story is quite appealing.

The Four Horsemen gears up promotions near premiere date

Hmm, if none of the 10+ airing dramas this month grab your attention, check this one out, but I can’t guarantee the acting is solid. Lol. It’s an idol drama based on a novel of the same name by Yu Jia. I mentioned The Four Horsemen way back in March and it is finally broadcasting on Qiyi on July 28th, led by Taiwanese actor Andy Chen and a truckload of fresh faces, especially the pretty girls!

Wu Xin The Monster Killer: Episode 2 “Undead Bride.”

And the secret of who and what he is thickens! Gotta say that Tangren might have found their next boy to milk. I rarely compliment a Chinese actor as sexy but this Elvis guy right here got my full attention tonight. Not just with his toned body but the way his face reacts with a charming cockiness to everything. You, my dear, are one sexy monk.
