Happiness comes in Two’s: Wallace Huo leads Ru Yi’s Palace

Can someone be this lucky? As if snatching the outgoing and charming Ruby Lin off the market isn’t enough, Wallace Huo is returning to dramaland as the object of power and affection, Emperor Qianlong, for the strings of consorts and concubines. And when I say ‘lead’, it’s only a technicality, as we know palace drama Ru Yi’s Royal Love in The Palace (后宫·如懿传) is truly a battlefield led by Zhou Xun. When I read the news this afternoon, I thought it was a joke because just a few days ago, Huang Lei’s name was being brought up a few times and then later today, Wallace’s side officially confirmed his casting. Are you pleased?

Another Promise of Marriage at 30: Aaron Yan to Gui Gui

After Wallace Huo and Hu Ge’s 5-year promise sprouted a new romance in the former’s life, I’m not surprised Promises of Wedding Bells is playing out in more ways than one. As mentioned before, Gui Gui is a member of the variety show, Crime Scene (明星大侦探), and the team recently reunited her with former co-star Aaron Yan, dressing them up as a republican couple. These two are so touchy-touchy!! In the brief promo clip for the another show, Idol Online (偶像萬萬碎), Aaron advises Gui Gui to get married to a mature guy who is at least 30, and when she inquires about him, he suggests a promise to marry her if she’s still unmarried at age 30. To further fan the romantic seed, he wonders where she wants to get married? Greece? Nope. She wants to go to Finland to see the Northern Lights. You two. Short clips of both shows are included after the jump (or after my imaginary storyline of them in a typical romcom.)

Li Yi Tong, Yang Xu Wen in Legend of the Condor Heroes 2016

Alright! A new remake in the making. What’s new nowadays, right? Lol.

The production team was trying to be secretive about the casting but it was already known in the cyberspace for many months about the two lucky new faces getting the coveted roles of a lifetime… in one of Jin Yong’s famous novels, Legend of the Condor Heroes. The new remake will be directed by Jeffrey Chiang (The Myth) and written by Chen Man Ling (The Legend of Magic Mirror). There’s also one small surprise at the end…. one actor from one of the previous versions is invited to play another character in the new version… hehe.

Weak heroine turned regal and revengy in Princess Wei Young

Oooh, I like the second trailer much better! Action-packed and we finally get to see the other side of sweet and tangy of Tang Yan’s character, manipulative and revengy. The guys master the bow and arrows while the ladies show off their piercing glares and possessiveness. I just realized the story is basically a bunch of sisters getting entangled with the princes. XD

Zhao Li Ying in the running for film project Yao Mao Zhuan

Still not officially confirmed but the piece of information did make a splash in the news sites. The funny thing is Angelababy’s name was circulated first in the beginning of this year. Lol. Remember the fiasco with Bi Yao? Tsk! If this news rings true, she will get to work with many big names in the film industry. Expand those credentials! Yao Mao Zhuan (妖猫传 or in English as Legend of the Demon Cat) is a film project from director Chen Kai Ge (Monk Comes Down the Mountain, Forever Enthralled) and famed writer Wang Hui Ling (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Lust Caution, The Crossing). Attached along with her name is Chen Kun and TFBoys’ Wang Jun Kai. Since it’s based on a Japanese novel, (which I cannot find anywhere!) the production team will be inviting Japanese actors to cooperate as well. It’s said they have worked for five years to polish the script and filming will begin in the latter half of 2016. The story takes place in the Tang Dynasty and they are working to build a stunning masterpiece set.

I uploaded a few more character previews of the other characters. One character in particular stood out from the rest. He might just be the scene stealer of the tomb-raiding community and Lay should be worried!
