Ten beautiful actresses join Hunan new reality show, Up Idol

Wow, what a fanboy-driven show! Heck, I’m a girl and I definitely have a crush on almost all the invited ladies. Up Idol (or Idol Is Coming), is a new reality show produced by HunanTV with ten beautiful actresses of their respected era traveling to different areas, one of them being Mongolia. Just when we complained we don’t have enough sisterhood displayed onscreen, here is a golden chance for creating those precious bonds that might just last a life time. I’m not sure what it is about because the baidu page is pretty unhelpful. But the core of the show is dividing them into two teams and competing them in various games and competitions. The show begins airing on July 25th. There will be male guests in certain episodes and some of the leaked news include Li Yi Feng, TFboys, Kris Wu, EXO, and Lu Han.

Who are the ten actresses? Click to find out! 😀

Let’s go by seniority! First up, and I can’t believe they managed to snatch her is Miss Brigitte Lin, starring in over 100 movies, including Royal Tramp, Peking Opera Blues, and The Bride with White Hair.

Youthful face Kristy Zhang (Princess of Lan Ling) was born in 1989. Hopefully, her appearance will boost the chances of POLL airing. T_____T

    Wow I wonder how they got Brigette Lin to come on the show. Who powerful people do they have behind Hunan.
    Zhao Li Ying will now have 3 shows airing, excited to see her on a variety show.

    What’d they sacrifice to get Brigette Lin to be on this show?!

    It was time. All her kids are grown up. Brigitte Lin needs the exposure for future projects not to mention increase sales on her books. I read there are some movie line-ups for her. Even rumors of a reunion movie with her and Andy Lau or Jackie Chan.

    She started snailing back into the industry with a book signing in Hong Kong, or was it Macau, sometime last year? Then it TURBO-ed from there. “Tuck and roll”, Brigitte! Tuck and roll.

    Looking forward to this since ZLY is here and it’s going to be my first time seeing her on a variety show ever since I became a fan. I just hope someone/some site would sub this. I couldn’t find any subs of Divas Hit The Road on any site. TT^TT

    Btw, do you know some sites where I can watch Whirlwind Girl and The Interns/Best Get Going with subs? Pretty please. 😀
