The second installment of the Beauty series, Beauty at the Crossfires, is set to air in two weeks, on the 14th of this month. Really? Everything is just gonna air during my Christmas vacation ain’t it? Alrighty, let the sleepless nights begin (if…subtitle is available…) Anyways, only Sammul Chan remains from the prequel. How I missed this scholarly lad! He’s been in many Chinese dramas after bidding goodbye to native home in TVB and I don’t remember the last I saw of him (possibly The White Flame with Charmaine Sheh.) Taking the female lead role is the young but talented Shu Chang, who I found adorable in The Lotus Lantern.
Which is basically today on Hunan Tv. It’s another novel-to-tv adaptation of the same name. If Zhao Li Ying was the breakout star of 2012-2013, then Li Qin is the latest contender to take the spotlight cause this girl has several dramas under her wings, to film and to air. The newest one, Flowers Pinellia, depicts Xia Ru Hua (Li Qin)’s life with a brotherly figure, Wei Ru Feng (Lin Shen) as the two struggle to cope after Ru Hua’s grandma’s death. Their loss is further exacerbated when Ru Hua is raped by a hooligan (Spoilers!) To seek revenge, Ru Feng dwindles down the path of temptations and emotional turmoils.
Well, if you’re a Wallace Chung‘s fan, like myself, you’re in a comfy seat. His drama adaptation of Tong Hua’ss novel, Secrets Hidden in Time (now known as Best Time (inept title)), just hits HunanTV station yesterday, November 20th! (Yui must be happy.) His second good news is the newly released trailer for the epic war drama, Warriors of the City, starring alongside Wang Like, Shuo Yang, and Ringo Yu.
Is there a rule somewhere that the bigger the man, the softer he is? Or maybe it’s because of his crush? Yea. That’s the answer. After one year (really?!! A year really flashed by…), the big teddy bear joins Running Man again. They love him enough to do a 3-episode special, and this is the second part. Exo boys also have a cameo part in the nametag game. Exo’s fans, forgive me, as I no longer follow Kpop so their names escape me (Boy 1, Boy 2, it is. Seriously, 11 boys?!! Oh SM…) The nation’s first love also comes to visit, playing and laughing along with the PD’s matchmaking skills.
The upcoming Taiwanese film is cutely titled Sweet Alibis (甜蜜殺機) and I’m just waiting for the amusing excuses these bad boys are gonna spin out. It’s so nice to see a macho-looking Wu A Ge again. Age has done him good but of course, wrinkles aren’t healthy on anyone. It’s gonna be fun to see pea-sized Ariel Lin against the slew of big, bad criminals. To play their roles convincingly, the two actors underwent some basic police training in Taiwan, which is always a good thing to do research. The 1-minute preview is fun and feels quite old-schooled. Our hero and heroine are fresh out of the police academy and they just can’t wait to show everyone their skills, clumsy and all.
One couple is fine, two is suspicious, three is on purpose, four is I-know-what-you-did-there. They are merely riding along the current wave, hoping that the media only focuses on the big fish. Smart move. The conversation might go: “Honey, let’s admit to the public about our secret love?” “No! You’re crazy!” “Why not? Nicky Wu and Liu Shi Shi did it!!”
Decided to do this feature to keep track of all the confirmed couples in 2013. Add if you know~
