Another long overdue batch. Just to catch up before Thanksgiving.
——> ♦ Hawick Lau, Gulnazar, and Sun Yi Zhou cast in a drama called First Love and they have released three posters. Filming begins the 24th of November. At this point in Hawick’s career, last love should be more fitting. Leave the first love shenanigans to the young actors, Hawick! He also recently squashed down rumors of a divorce with the lovely Yang Mi. Oh reporters, leave the new parents alone.
——> ♦ Korean actor Kwon Sang Woo joins in a modern drama adaptation called Dear Long Time No See based on the book, Bei Hai’s Lover. Filming started a week ago. His leading lady is Li Yi Xuan. She looks like Kara’s Ji Young.
——> ♦ Forgot to post the trailer for Border Town Prodigal with Zhu Yi Long and Viann Zhang. So here it is, a month later! Lol.
——> ♦ OMG. I laughed so hard watching the trailer of this webdrama, Go Princess Go. The numerous suggestive/sexual scenes it is allowed to show online. WOW. A lot of new faces in here. The storyline is basically a ripoff of Bu Bu Jing Xin. A girl time-travels to the past and marries a prince. A HOT MESSY MESS. New faces: Zhang Tian Ai (0:26), Peter Sheng Yi Lun (0:47), Guo Jun Chen (0:41), Alan Yu (1:20) Air date: 12/13/15.
——> ♦ Taking a serious turn genre-wise is Han Dong, as he is paired up with Dong Jie for a republican drama, Nanjing Love Story, co-produced by Shan Dong (yes yes) and Heng Dian. She’s a singer while he’s her lover in the army.
——> ♦ Official music video sang by Zhou Bi Chang is released for Li Yi Feng and Yang Mi‘s movie, Fall In Love Like A Star.
——> ♦ This quirky movie, Surprise, is giving me all the right strange vibes for Christmas already. Continue to be your crazy self, boys.
——> ♦ And if you want more monkey, first trailer is out for The Monkey King Part 2 with Feng Shao Feng (Monk Shifu), Aaron Kwon (Monkey King), Him Law (Sand), Xiao Shen Yang (Pig). Dang, I do not recognize these handsome boys in their costumes.
——> ♦ Just two more weeks before Go Lala Go 2 hits the screen guys! December 4th! More glamorous stills and a music video (If I Were A Song – Yoga Lin) below. I cannot wait. Looks very intense!
——> ♦ The Legend of Qin releases opening theme video! 7 more days until its premiere!! Where is Juli?? ^_^ I love the themesong. FEELING IT!

——> ♦ Bosco Wong joins Chen Qiao En and Nick Wang in Abandon Me Hold Me Tight as the despicable to-be-husband, doing everything in his power to keep her by his side. This is their second collaboration after Destined to Love You and they’re never meant together, I guess. Taiwanese actor Joe Cheng also joins the cast.
——> ♦ Zhao Li Ying confirmed her guest participation in Jiangsu’s music show, I Hear Your Voice, and also webdrama Old Nine Gates (老九门) as Yin Xin Yue, William’s wife. Ying Hao Ming and Crystal Yuan Bing Yan are also part of the main cast, alongside William Chan and EXO’s Lay. Look at her cute self at the promo event for cellphone IVVI. Adorable! Ni Ni also sports the same look at a different event. Beautiful ladies altogether!
