Chen Qiao En involves in a Cruel Romance with Huang Xiao Ming

 photo CruelRo232.jpg

On the small screen of course.

Directed by Lin He Long (Miss Shanghai Sweetheart, Devil Beside You), Cruel Romance is currently filming in Shanghai, also set in 1930s. My my, if I have money lying around, I’d fly to Shanghai this season because it seems like ALLLLL upcoming Chinese dramas are being filmed in Shanghai at the same time. Chances of bumping into one star isn’t hard. No? But boy! AM! I! Excited! For! This! One!!! Gorgeous cast and lovely official stills. The slick trailer was shown at the press conference held a few days ago, which you can find at the end of this post. Joe Chen continues to shine every time I see her. Place her next to bad boy Huang Xiao Ming and we have our classic trope of all drama tropes. Hard-working fresh face, Kimi Liang Qiao, adds a youthful glow to the love triangle with his brand of good guy presence (or maybe it’s the long-term effect of Female Prime Minister?)

Official Stills: Huang Xiao Ming plays Mobster Prince, while Joe Chen is the bright, brave girl turned hard-core because of the circumstances she’s repeatedly thrown in. She looks like a servant below, no? That’s because their relationship starts out on the wrong foot (surprise?) and she ends up working in his place for a period of time.

Qi Ji. He’s the craze-eyed villain here. I haven’t seen him in anything yet but his profile says he was the lead in Cuo Dian Yuan Yang with my girl crush Zhao Li Ying. Puleease! I don’t have time! Anyone? Good?

Wow, the actor Qi Ji really towers over everyone!

They look cute together. HXM’s face!

This drama is going to be a hit, isn’t it? Joe has a natural affinity with the audience, which has been a plus for her in the very beginning with hits like Prince Turns to Frog and Fated to Love You.

Oh Joe. Why must you put everyone on duty by wearing a dress that has a lengthy tail?! [email protected] Kimi’s face.

I need to see this sequence in action. Everyone fusses around the tail. hehe. 😛

Even sitting down is a difficult task. What’s she going to do when her bladder demands a release? o.o

90-second Trailer for Cruel Romance:

  • The action sequences look really good! Apparently, Huang Xiao Ming takes small part in the directing as well. I can’t wait for this!

    The set and era looks unnatural for this beautiful modern looking cast, but the trailer looks amazing.

    First time I see so much fuss over an actress’ dress. Darn adorable. I like Joe’s dress this time around, actually, I like it a lot. I shiver at the slightest sight of her shoes though. Yikes! Someone tell me, is Joe wearing ruby red earrings and necklace while her princess cut ring is blue sapphire? I can’t really tell. I’d go with all sapphire to match with the tulle. Maybe I’m bias since I’m a water sign, so only sapphire and jade appeals to me. =p

    Nice share Kappy. (Keane oogles at Joe’s and Jia Rong’s twins. Haha~)

      I know! It looks way too modern but everything is so boootiful, I forgive. 😛 And the trailer. Color me thrilled!!!

      That dress is a cute hassle on its own. Still lolling at Kimi’s face! And the actor (Xie Jun Hao) who was sitting down eventually stood up to help too. hehe. I believe her ring is also some kind of ruby reds as well, as seen in one picture. I like her dress but the long tail is not something I fancy (fearful that my face might have to hit the floor at some point.)

      And yes, the twin sisters. hehehe! P.S. It’s nice to be off on Mondays. ^^

    I can’t wait for this drama to air! The trailer looks EXTRA AMAZING!!! I’ve been waiting ever since they announced the cast because Qiao En and Huang Xiao Ming did a movie a few years back? and that trailer took me away. They had so sizzling scenes in that movie trailer!!! I tried to look for it online, but couldn’t…I wonder if it even premiered at all?!

    Anyhow, Qi Jin is actually a pretty decent actor. He had amazing chemistry with Zhao Li Ying in Cuo Dian Yuan Yang. But the drama wasn’t that great. I skip mostly everything except their scenes…LOL…

      Joe and HXM’s movie -Breaking the Waves- will be premiere on white day March 14, 2014.
      Sigh I’ve been waiting this for a long time…………… dunno what keep them delaying >_>
      I hope this time they don’t waste my excitement.

      Haha excited to see Joe Chen as an Athlete. She looks sexy sweating and fresh in the sporty style. And yes the trailer and her relationship with Huang Xiao Ming looks yummy *__^

    Cuo/Xi Dian Yuan Yang is a two part drama, which I believe spans 50 episodes. The first part (25 episodes) revolves around Zaho Li Ying and Qi Ji’s characters and their love. I didn’t care much for the second part, but the first part is relatively good. I just loved seeing the two’s interactions, especially since they have such a great height difference. I think you would like it if you are a hard-core Zhao Li Ying fan.

    Hmm I admit the dress is pretty but I was busy focusing on Xiao Ming!!! Love this dude. I read somewhere about his relationship with Zhao Wei. He’s such a romantic it makes me like him even more.

    Can’t wait for this drama to come out :D.

    I cannot wait for this to air ahhh. *fans self* And the press conference photos are hilarious — thanks for sharing!

    Btw, I think Kimi’s last name is Qiao, not Liang.

    Just have to see the commotion in this thread. Turns out the photos are cracking people me!! OMG. That dress and Kimi’s face!!! LOL!!!

    And for once, a trailer from a chinese drama doesn’t make me cringe from all the ridiculousness of slapping and cliches!! The action looks really well-done!! and everyone looks beautiful.

    looks like i gotta watch the drama that the tall actor is in with zhao li ying. based on everyone’s opinion, the height difference is gotta be cuteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! heheheheh 😛

      @momo and gigi; Oh my Joe Chen is really cute in the interview and she looks shining in the whole day.
      LOLOL at how Joe said that Zuo Zhen beats up every guy who dares to get near Jinxiu. XD!

      The trailer, press conference, and everything looks good. Also the angst and sadomasochistic-love plotlines sounds interesting. Really looking forward the series to air!!!

    *Kyaaaaaaaa* Qiao En is so so cute in the interview <3 I like her a lot. No wonder Aaron Kwok wants to film bed scene with her ;p

    QE's dress made a cute fuss..LOL..But men actually lucky have a chance to help adorable En aren't they? 😀 Ah me myself want to wear it.

    HXM is so handsome, everything looks good, the trailer looks amazing. Super EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Wow, the excitement in this thread is palpable. Did I finally wake you all up with the pretty cast and amazing trailer? 😛

    Miss unknown & Yen, you guys got me at the height difference. That factor makes me swoon like a little girl. XD Now I have to try out Cuo/Xi Dian Yuan Yang, at least for the first part.

    L, me too! His forever crush on Zhao Wei makes him relatable. How I wish they will be in a drama together.

    Thanks for the correction Jo! I always call him that because one of my friends, a big fangirl of Kimi, has Liang as her last name and she calls herself Mrs. Liang, wife of Kimi, conveniently changing his last name. 🙂

    Frea, give up and watch it with me! It’s gotta be cute!

    momo, thanks for the videos! That scene with HXM carrying her tail. hehe.

    cqefan, so our male lead is the possessive type? No wonder he bullies Kimi in one scene. I hope we don’t go too far down that maso-sado road because too much is a turnoff for me!

    gigi, I read the same interview too. Aaron, you pervie! 😛

    • 19 thoughts on “Chen Qiao En involves in a Cruel Romance with Huang Xiao Ming

      Yes, you should totally try to watch Cuo/Xi Dian Yuan Yang! At least the first part! They really do have amazing chemistry and actually, Qi Ji is an amazing kisser! LOL…they had quite a few kissing/bed scenes in that drama!

      Oh my, I haven’t seen cqefan in a while!!! I remembered the last time I saw her was on Asianfantatics! I’m so happy all QIao En fans seem to pop out now! LOL..anyone mind translating a little bit of what Qiao En said in the interview since I don’t speak Mandarin…Thanks!

      • 19 thoughts on “Chen Qiao En involves in a Cruel Romance with Huang Xiao Ming

        yes me too, I miss everyone on Asianfanatics 🙁 we had great discussion back then on AF…..

      • 19 thoughts on “Chen Qiao En involves in a Cruel Romance with Huang Xiao Ming

        kissy and bed scenes…. OMOOOOOOOOOO!!! Really!? to think and zhao li ying didn’t really have a passionate kiss with chen xiao and here she is having bed scenes? interesting. now i gotta check it out for those scenes. she’s quite daring in terms of kissing scenes with co-stars.

    OMG! This is in my “To Watch” list! 🙂

    The press conference from Kimi’s fan’s fancam. He and Qi Ji are the gentleman brothers here! They take care of the ladies really well, not forgetting about Jia Rong too.

    Cute moments to watch out for at 28min, 41min, 51min-53, 55-56, 59min-the guys focusing on the tail. ROFL

    And the last minute of the video where everyone heads off the stage, Kimi hurries to whip the tail up in his hands. HXM appears a bit too cool for the task, though! Maybe if it was for his crush, Zhao Wei, he would be different?
