Movie version of Summer’s Desire starts filming with new face

Continuing the trend of having both movie and drama adaptation of novels, Summer’s Desire, written by Ming Xiao Xi, is next in line and has secretly started filming two weeks ago. But it doesn’t have much fanfare yet because playing the heroine is a new face. Not to worry because the drama adaptation released five years ago starred some of Taiwanese biggest stars in Barbie Hsu, Peter Ho, and Huang Xiao Ming. I’m sure some of us remember the summer storm created during that time between the two ships. HAR HAR!

L♥ve Bug Report: Chen Xiao is dating Michelle Chen

You guys jumped the gun on me. Lol. I saw the news about 7 hours ago and have been in denial since then. I thought that if I could sleep through it all then maybe the news was only a dream. Then I woke up and reality is still there. Chen Xiao‘s manager has come out to confirm the relationship between the OTP of Romance of the Condor Heroes, the second real couple to emerge after portraying Yang Guo and Xiao Long Nv. They were caught by paps entering and then exiting from the same hotel room in Shanghai the next morning (+ previous dates). Of course Yumama is skipping happily around on Weibo too. But I’m only human and my heart has dropped somewhere when I read the news…. Gimme some time to retrieve it and I’ll be fine…

Fun trailer for Andy Yang and Qiao Zhen Yu’s Perfect Wedding

It’s been a long time since I last saw a lively and merry trailer from a Cdrama! Usually, it’s packed with cliches, slaps, inheritance, screaming, etc, but this one is filled with key moments between our main couple, played by Andy Yang Zi (Battle of Changsha) and Qiao Zhen Yu (Legend of the Ancient Sword). He’s a plastic surgeon, specializing in breast perfection (lol…) and she’s a….wedding planner. To dispel rumors surrounding his preference and to get his mother off his back, he’s persuaded our heroine to pose as his ex-gf and the charade somehow turns into a fake wedding for both. Perfect Wedding (direct translation: Great Marriage Custom) is an urban drama focusing on the journey to a perfect wedding for couples in love.

Forbidden kisses in Tangren’s Legend of the Nine-Tailed Foxes

I took a shift for a co-worker and now I’m 8 hours behind on my recapping schedule. BAH. Anyway, last time I translated the title of this drama out to be Green Hill Fox Legend, but yesterday, Tangren released a trailer and a few new stills, one of which is a poster with the English title and I took it upon myself to tweak the words and now the title shall be called Legend of the Nine-Tailed Foxes. The synopsis tells six stories surrounding the batch of our immortal characters and human boyfriends – all rising faces Tangren is promoting. When I have time, I will translate a quickie premise for each story. Right now, I just want to sleep, operating on a 3-hour sleep everyday for the past 3 days is taken a toll…I nodded off so hard on the train, my neck hurt. No Eddie to be my plushie pillow. Sigh~

Liu Shi Shi and Ryan Zheng’s Precious Youth unveils trailer

Another urban youth drama! And it’s the classic good-girl-bad-boy trope. It’s nice to see Liu Shi Shi in a modern setting, especially in one where her character has a temper and she gets to show off her real life ballet training. Ryan Zheng stars as the male lead and he’s the typical naughty bad boy during high school. They like each other but the love never blossoms due to youthful naivety and confusion. They meet each other years later, each walking a different path, making different life choices. Will the sweetness of youth be strong enough to pull them back together?

You know, all these dramas about meeting past loves/crushes make me nervous sometimes. I don’t know what I’d do if I see my high school crush again. Lol. Maybe I’d run and hide behind the corner. But in the drama universe, he would stop right before the corner. Tskk Tskk!!

L♥ve Bug Report: Zheng Shuang – Tiger Hu, Ryan Zheng – Yvonne Ching

A lot of couples formed/discovered overnight huh? Why can’t I sleep in peace? ^_^. Anyway, now can both sides of the camp stop fighting? Zheng Shuang has found love in Tiger Hu, the beloved singer known previously as Anson Hu. While I do wish the photos captured by the paps were less intimate, she’s happy and smiling. Likewise, Ryan Zheng (The Interns aka Best Get Going) took it to weibo and announced his sweet confession to Yvonne Ching.
