——> ♦ 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.

——> ♦ 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

———> Quickie News on Weibo:

——> ♦ New movie Good Morning Paris reunites Yang Guo and Xiao Long Nv, aka Chen Xiao and Michelle Chen. Production begins in September.

——> ♦ Modern love drama, We Are In Love, starring Yuan Hong, Ming Dao, and Zhang Jing Chu enters production in September. Ah, my favorite boys…

——> ♦ Ruby Lin has a new movie with Peter Ho and Kingscar Jin.

——> ♦ Fan Bing Bing to lead in drama adaptation of Eastern Palace, produced by Yumama. HAHAHAHHA!! The movie version, penned by the author himself, are negotiating with Yang Yang and Zhao Li Ying.

——> ♦ Kris Wu and Lin Gen Xin as leads in Journey to the West: Conquering Demons 2. Kris is gonna be the yummy-tasting monk, and Lin Geng Xin as the monkey king. WOW. To be a lead in a movie produced by Stephen Chow and directed by Tsui Hark is not an easy feat. Yao Chen is the female lead.

——> ♦ Hawick Lau to pair up with Yang Rong for a drama adaption of Gu Long’s novel, the story sounds like it follows Little Dagger Li.

——> ♦ Ma Tian Yu joins William Feng and Victoria Song in Ice Fantasy. YESHHHH!! He can be the devil in disguise little brother! Perfect casting in this role! Read more about the book synopsis here.

——> ♦ Despite the negative feedback Zheng Shuang received from book fans, the drama adaption of Just One Smile is Very Alluring with Yang Yang plans to start filming at the end of August. Prior Casting News Page.

——> ♦ Gui Gui‘s name is attached to a new drama adaptation of The Journey from Tonight is White written by Mo Wu Bi Ge. They storyline reminds me of My Sunshine. Break up and then meet up years later.

——> ♦ Chen Qian En‘s new modern drama might just be penned by Tong Hua. Tentatively titled, Abandon You, Hold Onto You. I don’t know… I’m not big of a fan of her female leads.

——> ♦ 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!

    Thanks for the news! The collab with Ma Tianyu and Feng Shaofeng is interesting! 🙂
    LOL Fan Bingbing in a Yumama drama
    Eastern Palace is a famous novel (although not my cup of tea). Will watch if Yang Yang is in it though! 🙂

    • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

      I wanna see Zhang Han and Yang Yang play brothers in a movie/series or something cuz I swear they could pass off as brothers IRL cuz their facial features are quite similar…

      • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

        Yes! I’d like to see this. YY already calls him older brother IRL.

    • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

      I laughed so hard. Yumama brought the “drama” queen on his boat. He’s gonna HEAR it this time if he messes up. LOL!

      If it’s a movie collaboration, I don’t mind watching it for my babies. =D

      Yang Yang calls everyone Ge! XD

    • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

      Wow Fan Bing Bing and Yumama may actually a match made in heaven. Neither one is big with historical detail (or any detail at all) and both just wants a good looking film with lots of word of mouth free advert.

      I forsee a very well followed and reported Eastern Palace coming up!

      Btw…I think I’m getting confused with which story Eastern Palace in (being non Chinese and all), is it the same story as Ron Ng, Myolie and Michelle Ye did in TVB ages ago? The one where Michelle was a rich girl and ending up marrying Kenneth Ma’s character?

      • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

        Tyn, do you mean Lost In the Chamber of Love? The story of Eastern Palace revolves around a spoiled princess arranged to marry a crown prince of another country. She’s righteous and adventurous. There are similar elements but if TVB did remake it, they didn’t give credit… Well, we know that part. LOL.

    • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

      I heard Ma TianYu’s fangirls in China are annoying as fuck and way too protectivel overly delusional on top of that. Is that true?

  2. 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

    I put the 11 Chu Te Gong Huang Fei novel on hold for now, though I did finish at least 12 chapters so far. It’s not really my cup of tea as the characters are quite brutal. If they are going to adapt this into a drama, they will have to change a lot of things around and/or cut out all of the gory scenes.

    But wow, Luo Jin, Bosco and ZLY. I wouldn’t mind seeing the last two together but Luo Jin seems out of place. LOL.

    Not sure how I feel about there being a drama adaptation of Eastern Palace. It’s quite a short novel and most suitable for movie adaptation, so I’ll be looking forward to that once they confirm the cast.

    Can’t wait to follow the news of Just One Smile is Very Alluring. Zheng Shuang is not my top choice for Weiwei but I can’t say that she doesn’t fit the image. Excited to see how things will turn out between her and Yang Yang in terms of chemistry.

    • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

      Gory and brutal? I don’t mind a little brutality. This is war! Kidding aside, they would probably change/lessen those scenes to match with their ridiculous guidelines. Luo Jin should play her older brother in some series. They would look cute. XD

      It’s a good thing they picked Yang Yang, someone who is already accustomed with Zheng Shuang. Fans were shipping them together during that variety show too!

      • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

        They may have to change the protagonist’s personality if they are going to work around the guidelines. She is not a likable character so far with her being a part of the brutality. :S

        I think some fans also shipped her with Jing Boran. Both “couples” are cute. 🙂

        • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

          Definitely make them likable but I would like to see Li Ying stretch her acting in more complex and villainy roles. This sounds like a dream happening!

          Yep. They did ship her with Boran; Yang Yang was more of a genuine surprise. heh.

    I’m in such a drama drought that I’m actually excited for Yun Zhong Ge despite my earlier apprehensions about the casting. Sigh….

    Not a fan of the Bosco, Luo Jin, ZLY pairings. Double sigh…

    • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

      Yun Zhong Ge is like heaven for me – all the people I have grown to like! Not sure about the story since I didn’t read the book and it looks messy from the stills with everyone hugging everyone. We have a lot of players at hand.

      Bosco and Li Ying might look cute together but I’m iffy about Luo Jin. Gotta be optimistic or I might end up with another JOF in my hands!

      • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

        The drama adaptation will probably mess everything up, given that it’s by Yumama. The book was beautiful, I think, because of how tragic it was (I’m a sadist, apparently…). I’ve only read the english translations, but there were a few chapters in between that didn’t get translated… 🙁

        The trailers seem to imply that the main characters are different in the book than in the drama adaptation. I’m actually just really not excited about Du Chun as Meng Jue. His character is supposed to be extremely handsome…Also not sensing a lot of chemistry between what was the original triangle: Lu Yi – Angelababy – Du Chun.

        • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

          Not sure who’s the S&M here around here. LOL.

          I keep on forgetting that Chen Xiao is not the leading man. Lu Yi and Du Chun – chemistry not really there with Angelababy but who knows, they might bring magic in motion.

    I’m not familiar with those Chinese novels, but thrilled by the possibility of Yang Yang – Zhao Li Ying pairing in Eastern Promise. Make it happen, please! I quite like the title as well, as it’s also the name of a jazz club in my city :D.

    I don’t really like the premise of Yun Zhong Ge, but who can resist Chen Xiao? Will definitely check it if only for him.

    • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

      HAHHAA!! Lenje! You and your mixed up phrases. Eastern Promise? LOL!!

      • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

        I did it again? *scrolling up* Oh, NOES!!!! *banging head on my fluffy pillow*

        Eastern Palace. Dang, the jazz club’s name is Eastern Promise still. I’m the Queen of Mixing Up!

        • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

          …also the Viggo Mortensen movie comes to mind 🙂

      • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

        LOL it’s easy to mix up “Eastern Palace” because my first thought upon hearing that title was the Viggo Mortensen movie … but then I was like, “Hang on, that’s Eastern Promises…”

  5. 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

    Andy!!!! I’m so thrilled to see news on her. Getting any news in English about her is a rare event. I adore her to bits after watching her in ‘Battle of Changsha’. She is such a talented actress. Powerhouse acting-chops. Can anyone help give me more information about her movie? Storyline? Pretty please.

    • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

      The storyline is pretty generic for a movie with the setting set during the time of SARS. They were separated as kids and meet again as adults. But Dylan’s character wants to fulfill his dad’s wishes and thus marries another woman. This is the gist of it.

      I like her too and will start to cover more of her works. 🙂

    huaaaa.. been awhile! and came here to find some news and yatta.. i really do like your bulletin board 😀

    i wish ZLY will get paired with Bosco. i like him but couldnt finish watching his drama with Chen Qiao En. Sigh. a messy storyline, hehe..sawry.

    when i read William Feng, in my mind it was William Chan Wai Ting, lols.. my bad!

    • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

      heh. Yui, you’re all about Eddie and William Chan! No place for anyone else? *wink*

      • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

        IKR! lols

        i love all handsome men la.. including Ma Tian Yu (just cameback from your latest article). 😀

        No no no, i have to mention Wallace Chung too.. or else, i would get banned from his blog 😛

        btw, i rarely see you post about Taiwanese actors lately.. or did i miss something? 😀

        • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

          I did post about Dylan Kuo! Taiwanese most handsome man! XD

          Ma Tian Yu is the new it boy for you then? heh.

  7. 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

    lols.. emm.. not really my new boy.. i prefer Dylan rather than MTY actually. 😛

    btw kinda out of topic, the movie of my sunshine has already released last june, hasn’t it? any news about it? i mean, is it good enough comparing to the drama version?

    • 28 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (16)

      Honestly, I didn’t finish watching My Sunshine and the storyline is not my cup of tea…. Lol. So I didn’t pay much attention to the movie even if it looks really pretty. XD
