Time to catch up…!
——> ♦ Stills of our OTP – Wang Li Kun and Luo Jin – in The Gods. Still disappointed Chen Xiao passed up this opportunity and went back to Yumama. Wang Li Kun looks stunning but someone went overzealous with the photoshop brush for Luo Jin. He’s unrecognizable!
Wang Li Kun as is Da Ji, a beautiful concubine of King Zhou, who is possessed by an evil fox spirit and causes the downfall of the Shang dynasty. I think we all know this story very well.
Our hero Luo Jin as Yang Jian, often seen in creative works as Erlang Shen, the God with the third eye on his forehead and wanted to punish our Monkey King in various TV adaptations.
——> ♦ First trailer for Lin Gen Xin‘s God of War Zhao Yun with Yoona, Kim Jung Hoon, Godfrey Gao, etc. Some stills of their press conference as well. Too much focus on the love story….are we not talking about how Zhao Yun came to be a notable warrior, writers?!!
Godfrey looks good, convincing as a general.
This armor could crush Jia Qing!
——> ♦ Hu Ge‘s spy drama, The Disguiser, completed filming after four long months. Same producer and director of Nirvana in Fire and Battle of Changsha. That should whet your appetite! New Stills below.
Hu Ge as the youngest brother of the Ming Family.
Second Brother, Jin Dong.
Badass oldest sister, Liu Min Tao.
Nick Wang. Loyal assistant of the siblings.
——> ♦ Intensely beautiful teaser and trailer to Murmur of the Hearts featuring Joseph Chang and Isabella Leong. Directed by the raw touch of Sylvia Chang, the movie came out a few weeks ago. It looks like a wonderful treat to the eyes so have some shadowy photos.
Trailer & Themesong:
——> ♦ Hawick Lau and Zheng Shuang‘s palace drama, Chronicle of Life, begins filming some days ago. The story follows Emperor Kangxi and is a drama adaptation of the novel by Fei Wo Si Cun (Sealed with a Kiss). This is Zheng Shuang’s first Qing drama. I don’t know, this author and her tragic/torturing love stories are not my cup of tea. The male leads from Destined to Love You, Jia Nai Liang and Bosco Wong were there as part of Tong Hua’s leading men so far in her various novel-to-drama projects. They stole the limelight right under the nose of the main OTP. Lol.
——> ♦ Is anyone watching The Wife’s Lies? Apparently, the ratings beat out HunanTv’s previous monstrous hit, The Empress of China. This came as a a surprise because the leads are not famous stars and the drama was lowly budgeted. This can only be good for the main couple – Jia Qing and Zhang Xiao Long.
——> ♦ Peter Ho and Victoria Song‘s Beautiful Secret wrapped up filming last week. Whew. Don’t ask me why she’s wearing an apple costume. Maybe that’s part of Peter’s star-training program.
——> ♦ Because this is toooooooooo cute not to post. Anyone who will watch this movie, please spoil me with one word – happy or sad ending! Funny how the promotional materials are using the former title now, One Minute More, instead of the generic Love Me Love My Dog. Peter Ho, Janine Chang, and Mr. Golden Retriever as our OT3!
Oh, precious precious!!
——> ♦ Zhao Li Ying wrapped up her scenes for The Legend of Zu and will immediately start filming The Rise of A Tomboy aka Perfect Lover for a Tomboy aka When will this movie stop changing its name?!! The movie is only given a short time to film… She should have rested instead taking on another project! Because she will start a new drama in June too..Sigh. The male lead…..is Zhang Han. Yep. He changed his mind and decided to be in this movie after all. The second male lead…. is Jung Il Woo (The Night Watchman). WHAT. So random?!!
——> ♦ Wallace Huo‘s drama, When He Comes Close Your Eyes, is still without a leading lady. So picky, eh? They reveal that they won’t be changing the details of the novel. Interesting. How far will they go with the gore?
——> ♦ Chinese Movie, Three Dads, with Run Brother‘s Jerry Lee and Ryan Zheng. Compiled Trailer + Clips:
——> ♦ Kimi Qiao might reunite with Chen Qiao En in a new ancient drama, and of course, it’s a remake of a novel. It has a game version too. If all goes well, filming begins some time in May.
——> ♦ Rumor on weibo is that Tang Yan might be filming a romantic comedy with Aaron Kwok. Who knows… She’s another busy worker in C-Ent.
