Zhao Li Ying’s character teaser for The Mystic Nine

Don’t worry, The Mystic Nine is just the official English name for Old Nine Gates (老九门). One heck of a badass name, don’t ya think? Two weeks ago, they gave us a character teaser for William Chan‘s character and now we have one for his devoted wifey. Zhao Li Ying is only a recurring guest role so not many scenes in the series, keke. Her role as Yin Xin Yue is mischievous and smart young lady. She has a fiancé but falls in love with William after their first encounter (and saves him many times after). When he falls from the top, she’s there to support and protect him from various assassination groups. Like she has balls of steels! I love her character already.

Nope. Never those dang straight bangs. LOL!

Gu Fang Bu Zi Shang begins filming with Wallace Chung and Angelababy

Yep! Another production starts rolling. Gu Fang Bu Zi Shang or otherwise known to novel fans as A Lonesome Fragrance Waiting to be Appreciated (孤芳不自赏) holds its booting ceremony today too. Cast members include Wallace Chung, Angelababy, Sun Yi Zhou, and Gan Ting Ting. The novel is written by Feng Nong and tells the story of a highly intellectual but quite average-looking maid who is abducted and married off to the enemy of her master. Trapped, she uses a fake identity to protect her life while living in the enemy territory. Of course, where ever there are people, feelings begin to grow and develop, and this causes conflicts with her loyalty to her original master. So she loves the successful general but has to sabotage him for her master’s sake…? Okay, folks, did I get the story right? It’s 12am at night here. Lol.

Off to post pictures!…and then sleep.

Deng Lun and Krystal Jung confirmed for Graduation Season

Another modern drama coming your way. I guess Lay is too busy with EXO’s activities to follow through with this project. He was first announced and then they jumped through a few actors before getting to Deng Lun. He was the second lead in Fifteen Years of Migratory Birds, and looks like he’s one of the new rising faces in the industry. Besides Graduation Season (毕业季), he has a modern drama with Sun Yi, and will also play a supporting character in Zhao Li Ying’s The Legend of Chu Qiao (more on this later). Quite busy! His leading lady, who was confirmed last year is Krystal Jung, from Korean girl group, F(x).

First Gay Ancient Chinese Drama: Love Is More Than A Word

Well, you know the rules. The more you want people to stop doing something, the more they want to do it. Not sure how this will turn out in the end for the production, whether they can air the series or not, but here we go. As you know, I don’t read novels so I was surprised to learn that there is a category specifically made for novels with the focus on male OTP called Dan Mei (耽美), which means a liking towards pretty things (Lol, the crime we suffer under!) Love Is More Than A Word (识汝不识丁[Shi Ru Bu Shi Ding]) is a novel written by Su You Bing and a skim of the synopsis suggests that humor (besides the pretty boys) is its strongest draw. It’s the first drama adaptation of a dan mei novel in ancient setting (what they say.)

Love At Seventeen: Episode 3 “Adulthood.”

Last recap for this drama on my end (not like many are reading!). There is only a handful of times you could shove a scene down my throat and call it romance or the tingling of teenage hormones, director. I thought we had something special, but this episode churned out cliché one after another, and the lead up to the ultimate split was dull and predictable. (Unless they are totally duping me?!)

First teaser for My Fair Lady with Chen Yi An, Zhang Tian Ai

Webdrama My Fair Lady is based on the novel My Friend Miss Chen Bai Lu (我的朋友陈白露小姐) written by Hai Tang. It stars new faces Chen Yi An and Qu Chu Xiao as the OTP; whereas she’s a wealthy girl who falls to rock bottom financially. She then meets him, a rich runaway son, and together, they change the trajectory of their lives. Their story will be told through the eyes of their best friend, a girl who is kind and gentle, and carries a torch the for male lead, played by Zhang Tian Ai. Some articles are describing it as the Chinese Version of Gossip Girl. Oh Boy. Be yourself! Anyway, the short teaser is out and Crystal definitely has more screen time in it than the female lead as the director cast her before the wild success of Go Princess Go and had to bank on that selling point with more cuts for the rising starlet.

Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (33)

Caught a break and went to watch The Jungle Book with my little boy. Seems like the running theme in all Disney movies is identifying and enhancing one’s sense of self (be the best of you!) Haven’t watched the original movie or animation series, but I enjoyed the movie and loved it quite a bit. Baloo and his jokes got me rolling.
