It’s been three and something weeks! Here’s another news compilation for y’all!
——> ♦ A fresh reminder that Yun Ge from the Desert or Cloud in the Song will begin airing after The Journey of Flower completes its run. September 15th HunanTV. New trailer released!
Mr. Chen Xiao!
Li Ying’s small cameo with Lu Yi. Who knew they would be starring together in Rouge now.
——> ♦ Stills of Chen Qiao En for her movie, Youth Never Returns, with Zhang Han. She looks like her character in Fated to Love You.
——> ♦ Boran Jing‘s stills from Bride Wars and how he lost his battle with the angry brides. Fun cameo!
——> ♦ Coming out on the same day as Bride Wars is Cities in Love with its five couples. Which movie will reign in first place?
——> ♦ After Kwong Wah, Huang Xiao Ming is the next handsome actor to shave/cut his hair and become a monk for an upcoming Chinese-Indian historical adventure, Monk Xuan Zang. Other stars include Keng Tong (Return of the Condor Heroes TVB 1983), and Purba Rgyal (Holy Pearl). Of course, he is a monk written in real history and not the monk we’re used to seeing in The Monkey King.
——> ♦ Kimi Qiao looking hot and quite manly for his new drama, 定制幸福 (Regulation of Happiness? A toughie!). His female lead is Tanya Tong Yao.
——> ♦ Taiwanese drama, Moon River (Ming Ruo Xiao Xi), to air on HunanTV after Taekwondo Girl. Starring Pets Tseng (Angel ‘N’ Devil, You Light Up My Star), Lin Zi Hong (Angel ‘N’ Devil), and Evan Ma (member of boy band Spexial). Looks like the new trend is fighter heroine but the story spells Meteor Garden…? New girl at school, messes with troubled boys… The heroine looks completely crazy in a funny way. I might just tune in. After you watch the trailer, watch the funny clip where Yang Yang promotes it. Lol.
——> ♦ Dylan Kuo‘s movie, Where’s The Time, totally went under my radar! It came out two days ago in theaters. He’s romancing Andy Yang (Battle of Chang Sha). The mv looks sad as heck…. T___T

——> ♦ Zhao Li Ying‘s rumored project, 11 Chu Te Gong Huang Fei, is reportedly in negotiation with Luo Jin and Bosco Wong for the male leads roles! GAHHH. Polaris should be dancing at the club hearing this. Lol. It’s a good thing she’s reading the novel! But I’m not sure how these three look together. Especially Luo Jin who looks a tad older than baby-faced Li Ying. Sticky sticky!
