    Thank you for sharing!

    I’m hooked on General and I. I don’t believe the rumors. I’ve watched the BTS clips, and Wallace and ABB got along well.

    Looking forward to ZLY’s next project. She’s making me wait lol

      Li Ying keeps saying she wants to rest this year and have time for herself to travel. I’m okay with her plan to rest and relax a little. Little bee’s been working too hard! 🙂

      1. Hannah

        True!

        Did ABB know she was pregnant prior to filming? She did a couple of action scenes in the drama thus far. Scary!

    2017 looks more awesome in drama and movie land! There is lots on that lisy that I will be waiting for. Thank you again for putting up the list for us. You’re awesome! I am very sad for tong li ya, wth i use to like chen sicheng but after this i am losing respect for him, sicko invited his sidewomens to his house gross! Poor wife and kid. I hope she doesnt just give him a slap on the risk like anglica lee did for her husband. Omg and hawick use yo really like him too, but loose respect for cheaters.

    Hoping it’s not Gulinazha for You’re Still Here. I felt she is still rather stiff in her acting.
    Has Yan Kuan ever play a vampire? He would make a great one 😀
    Zhou Dong Yu and Zhang Yi Shan look so cute
    I like how Ruby’s baby is also born in January like her <3 And awww to Michelle's and Chen Xiao's baby boy
    Haven't watched Alan Yu Meng Long in a while, but he's everywhere lol.
    Wan Qian <3
    Looking forward to the Ming brothers ^.^ So much pretty
    Princess Wei Young storyline is not really creative or out of the ordinary. Tons of ancient novels have plots with time traveling or reverting back to a younger age, and seeking revenge.
    Shame on Chen Si Cheng. Shame. Poor Tong Li Ya I'll avoid Great Expectations then.
    Wallace Chung's song sounds nice but I haven't made any progress in watching General and I lol.
    You know what Liu Shi Shi's hair reminds me of in the first poster? A stove. The part of the stove with the curvy hooks where the fire would be. Maybe they were trying to relate to her magical brightness? A+ for creativity lol.

    1. Kappy

      LOL. A Stove?! You ladies are coming up with creative ways to describe their hairstyles. XD

    Only half looking forward to Glory of Tang. I LOVE Jing Tian, and she looks gorgeous in this one. Her character also seems to have more quiet strength and maturity than her usual “fiery smart girl” type, which will be nice. BUT I’m still not feeling Allen yet, and that wouldn’t be as big of an issue for me if they didn’t have Mao Zi Jun and Qin Jun Jie in the same production playing supporting roles. I mean, I’m all for newbies getting a chance, but Mao Zi Jun has been playing “significant supporting characters” for quite a while and he’s pretty decent, so I really wanna see him get his own lead roles…

    Super excited for Ode to Joy 2!!!

    Also looking forward to Mao Xiao Tong’s lead drama, but everything else for me is well… we’ll see.

    Honestly I don’t care about the cheating that much. I mean, I thinking cheaters are just morally horrible ppl and I wouldn’t condone it by any means, but… The thing with scandals and such, is that unless it comes from the ppl involved themselves, I tend to take any like news with a grain of salt. Any photographic (well, I mean barring being caught red-handed) evidence can be easily misconstrued by paps, info left out to skew news, etc. Even if it was real, yeah it’ll affect how I see the actor/actress, but tbh it also happens so commonly in real life that I feel like I really shouldn’t judge MORE just cuz they’re celebs. At the same time, I tend to actually care less, because clearly these scandals are public news, and if it really happened, I’d hope one of the involved parties (the victim, I mean, even tho I don’t like using that word) would take action even if they don’t publicly issue any statement. Whether it’s break up, divorce, separation, etc. But if the couples seem fine with it, it either didn’t happen and they had enough trust, or one of them is willing to put up with it. While putting up with cheating can come off as really disappointing to me, I also know these situations are emotionally wrought and not always black/white, so who am I to care if they don’t care themselves.

    Just my two cents. So honestly, if Great Expectations turns out well, I’d still watch. And I really haven’t believed either the Hawick scandal or CSC’s, and even if they’re true, well…their wives seem to be handling it.

    I stopped watching the General and I for a while now, Angelababy acting is just too stiff for my taste. I am actually looking forward to some of the republican and ancient dramas coming out this year (last year dramas wasn’t so great in my opinion). I’m not really into modern dramas so no opinion on that. Just one last comment on Liu Shishi hairstyle, like I mentioned in the chat box, she looks like she is wearing an octopus on her head. These dramas should really have an independent committee for bad ideas intervention because some of them are really bad.

    1. Ironfingers

      Hahahaha thats a good idea! Like director, designer and producer all gave it a go for that awful hair. Her other one looks like a spider web lol. Its going to be distracting when watching. Wishing lss the best of luck with her future, hopes she picks great projects ahead. As for general and i, ibam okay with angelababy shes starting to show more personality and not be so cold to wards cbj. Lol wallace makes every relationship looks good hehe.

  7. haha

    So, my guess is right. While watching G&I, I always thought it seemed that they heavily edited both WC and AB’s scenes whenever they were in the scenes (not particularly together). *sigh, I was eagerly waiting for this drama and that’s all I’ve got, edited version of the green studio!

    1. nell123

      yup, that’s actually what made me stop watching. i can live with silly stories (tbh, unlike most people here, I’m not really into the original book story) but the crappy editing and bad FX – nooope.

  8. peach

    LSS’s hairstyle… I don’t understand how is it that nobody in the production group is saying something about that hair when so many people are saying that it looks ugly lol.
    I love the vibe that’s going on between Zhang YiShan and ZDY! The stills look pretty and I can feel their chemistry just by looking at those photos!

    Another cheating scandal lol… Don’t understand why ppl just can’t stay loyal towards their another half. Is it that difficult??? If you like having different woman around you then don’t get married and harm your wife and let her suffer. Poor LiYa and her son!

  9. Wuxialovers

    Hello Kappy, thanks for the update. I did not recognized LSS in the first photo. Did they photoshopped her or something? Or maybe it’s the hair. Feels like the person in charge really want to be creative ………and failed !!!! Shu Chang’s hair in Chusen is quite awful too and she is so young in reality. The hairstyle made her look a lot older than her real age. I know she was supposed to be 2000 years old in the drama but still.

    As always any news on ZLY is welcomed. I liked that she has friends and enjoy herself. I am really impatient to watch her movies and dramas.

    As for the scandals, well the media really like ot play on it especially since Tong Liya and Yang Mi and their respective others are famous. Eventhough it is true, this is their family business. Actors and actresses are human too. Just my thoughts of course.

    1. Kappy

      I think they used a little too much airbrushing here for the flawless skin effect. Lol. She does have great skin in real life (from the close-up shots I’ve seen.)

  10. Licorice

    Liying is friend with everyone! LOL

    Been a long time since the news for White Snake Legend remake. Yang Zi as White Snake??? lt’s not that l’m against it, but that means the speculations for the posters are so off. LOL why they haven’t revealed the actors yet?

  11. Coco

    Am crazily chasing after General and I. Wallace’s character is so hot!

    I read the book General and I and personally feel that the 2 leads don’t really spend that much time together until the end…most of the time they are on opposing camps trying to outmanoeuvred one another & halfway through the novel, 1 disappeared & another faked death…but am really happy that there’s more kissing in the drama than the book! Both seem quite professional in getting their scenes right especially the kiss scene.

    I do agree that the editing isn’t that good. I used to think that the actors were acting with that wonderful scenery until I watch a bts (for another drama) & realised the actors were surrounded by green screens…

  12. DonD

    Ah any news about the beloved Li Ying is always a treat to read. She seems like she would be so much fun to hang out with.

    Thanks for the news Kappy.

    China’s filming and drama budgets are getting so huge in comparison to 5yrs ago. The cost to produce a great number of drama shown here are not for the faint hearted. The home entertainment industry is definitely out doing the Korean. I remember the cycle as I was growing up. It started of with Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, China now. Thai lakorns are getting popular steadily. I just started watching them three months ago. And I am hooked. But likely I will creep back to C_dramas soon.
    Thanks Kappy for taking time to put together this “dossier”. Again if there is anything I can support your site with. I have happy to do so.

    1. hohliu

      Just read gossip in Tong Li Ya, I feel so angry for her!!! She does not deserve a man like that in her life.

    2. Kappy

      I replied to your email Hohliu! I welcome all kinds of uploads from any country! =)

  14. Carla

    Hi Kapoy, thanks for my daily dose of ZLY news! Cant wait for #PrincessAgent

  15. Yui

    Havent quitted watching General&I but ABB’s acting is just meh. And Wallace couldnt help either.

    Btw, Kappy, you havent talked about TW dramas for a while. I am currently watch Behind Your Smile and The King Of Romance. Typical TW dramas but not bad.

    While for some other Cdrama, still waiting for engsub. Do you know when will OTJ2 air?? Im a big fan.

    Ps : i want to recommend Kr-drama called Goblin. Have you watched it? It’s good. Really.

    1. Kappy

      Hey Yui! It’s because I’m all backed up with Cdramas alone! Lol. So many out! And I have work, and updating news takes up a lot of time.

      You gotta help me out here, what’s OTJ2? I plan to watch some twdramas in the near future (lol). XD

      Goblin! Yes! I am. One of the few I’m following, but mainly for Wookie and Inna. Beautiful. 😉

      1. Julianne Lin

        Hazarding a guess, I think OTJ2 = Ode to Joy 2

      2. Yui

        Yes, thanks Julianne… Ode to joy 2.

        I hope it will air soon. I miss the girls so much. But i want the boys more hahaha…
