Tan Song Yun’s My Mr. Mermaid lines up Handsome Swimmers

HOHOHO! I believe that in an actress’ career, she should play in her own harem at least once and this looks like the case for up-and-rising baby-faced beauty, Tan Song Yun, who took on the lovable best friend role in both seasons of Tornado Girl. Based on the novel of the same name written by Jiu Xiao Qi, My Mr. Mermaid (浪花一朵朵) is a sweet and funny love story about a reporter and a star swimmer. YES to abs! I mean…sweetness and hilarity are much needed in a world where most novel writers enjoy torturing the lead couple. XD But yes, I do like my eye candy and this time, they are swimmers! Sport dramas!! I really need them! So rare in dramaland! Can’t gauge much on their physicality yet but I hope we don’t get frail flailing arms. LOL.

Sina’s Weibo Awards Night 2016

Another year of weibo night. To be honest, the awards seem to matter less and less each year. Show up? Here ya go. Beside the Weibo King and Queen of the Year, I didn’t really read about the others. Lol.

Star of Tomorrow’s Child Actors continue cuteness with Hua Mu Lan

And you thought The Legend of White Snake was cute? Wait till you see the kiddie version of Hua Mu Lan (花木兰)! I couldn’t stop smiling at the kids in soldiers uniforms! The same group of child actors from the program Star of Tomorrow. I think it’s a genius idea for the kids to have a feel of acting and simply enjoying the sets, equipment, and making life-long friends. It’s precious!

New Madame White Snake confirms Yang Zi, Ren Jia Lun, Mao Zi Jun

GAH. I know I laugh about the package deal before but this is getting a bit ridiculous. When you enter a new production, do you want to see the same faces for 4 consecutive times? New Madame White Snake (天乩之白蛇传说) held its booting ceremony this morning and it’s led by Yang Zi (not present), Allen Ren Jia Lun, Mao Zi Jun, and He Du Juan (The Good Fellas, The Gods).

Opening Themesongs: Three Lives Three Worlds, Glory of Tang Dynasty

Opening themesongs are revealed for two dramas that will be contending in the ratings game with General and I nearing its last leg of episodes. Smart move to air earlier. Yang Mi‘s Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms and Jing Tian‘s Glory of the Tang Dynasty. On the one hand, I still do not feel much for the OTP of 3L3W but their secondary and tertiary couples are looking cute and their songs are pretty on the dot to steal my little heart. On the other hand, while Tang Dynasty is on the down low with promos, I’m more inclined to check it out, thanks largely to the intense trailer, Jing Tian’s charms, and the wagon of cast members from Legend of Chusen. I need to see them in something worthwhile of their talents. Yes, that’s a shade at you, Chusen!

Han Han leads Snarky Family in Duckweed’s Animated Posters

Lol. I was gonna say three (father Eddie Peng, mother Zhao Li Ying, son Deng Chao) but writer and director Han Han is equally snarky in his weibo posts, especially targeting our Li Ying for her sharp words against every now and then. XD Such a cute man. I’m still amazed how close this cast is despite filming for about a month-ish. Imagine if they spent 3-4 months like shooting for a full-length drama! BFFs? Some translation, plus new stills and posters after the jump.

Ah, so after the initial rumored cast was exposed back in November, we finally have our confirmed cast and first batch of wintry stills for Leo Wu Lei‘s next epic costume drama, Fights Break Sphere, adapted from Battle Through the Heavens (斗破苍穹), a xianxia novel written by Tian Can Tu Dou with over 1000 chapters. Male lead was confirmed months ago for Wu Lei’s casting and now we have his female lead in Lin Yun, a film actress who broke into the scene by playing the mermaid in Stephen Chow’s movie, The Mermaid. She’s 20 to Leo’s 17. Very close! Her character, Xiao Xun Er, is adopted by male lead’s family and his childhood friend, very loyal and dedicated to him.
