——> ♦ New trailers for the fourth season of The Legend of Zu (S). I wish we have more developments between Wu Xin and her estranged parents instead of her just chasing the same guy over and over again. There’s a bed scene though! I’m a little nervous because what if it’s not Wu Xin but the other girl?!! Are they tricking me?!!

The story focuses on the painful deep love between our OTP. They have been in love for the longest time but after discovering that her sister crushes on the same man, our heroine steps out from the love triangle. At the same time, fathers from both side die tragically in a plane accident, leading to the heroine’s recuperation in the states for the years to come. When she returns back home, she works at the hero’s company. The contrived plot! Really? No other company in China? Lol.

——> ♦ Ding Mo‘s Memory Lost to become a webdrama produced by Iqiyi and in charge of the script is Yumama. HAR HAR. I guess we can’t dodge this bullet since Yumama really wants to do it since furrrevaaa. Filming to start in March. Yang Rong is the rumored female lead.

——> ♦ It Started With A Kiss Movie Version has a rumored cast in Kris Wu and either Zheng Shuang (quite impossible since she’s reportedly going overseas half of next year to study) or Dilraba Dilmurat.

——> ♦ Real Life Husband-Wife Christopher Lee and Fann Wong reunite onscreen for Chinese drama, Dear, Long Time No See. This time, they will be playing an old, married couple of a large corporation with a side dish of doom and gloom.

——> ♦ And if you skipped my photo bomb area in Qiyi’s awards night, Just One Smile Is Very Alluring movie version has confirmed Angelababy and Boran Jing as leads.

——> ♦ New movie adaptation of Japanese novel, Summer, Nineteen-Year-Old Portrait (Natsu, Jukyusai No Shozo), written by Soji Shimada has confirmed Ex-EXO’s Huang Zi Tao as the hero. Aww man, another Ex-EXO boy I have to keep track of. Lol. His character is described as handsome and a brilliant basketball player in his first year of college. After being hospitalized for his injuries, he harbors a crush on a beautiful girl and discovers her life’s biggest secret. SHE’S A MAN! ….. Just kidding. Lol.

——> ♦ Another Japanese novel to get a Chinese film adaptation is Miracles of the Namiya General Store written by Keigo Higashino.

    Nice mv. I couldn’t finish the interns…i tried. Just wasn’t very engaging…nothing to do with the actors..more like the story does not resonate with me much

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      The story took a long time for me to actually want to finish (and like some of the characters). Everything dragged out a bit too long and the choppy editing didn’t help either. Sigh. But Li Ying was so cute in it that I had to finish. Plus, Ryan was adorable in love too! 🙂

    Have fun in New York, Kappy! That’s the place to be for winter holidays. =)

    I am so happy to see Zhu Yi Long in Xiao Shi Yi Lang. Not fond of the styling but oh well. I’ll take it.

    Our boy Tian Yu is trending on Weibo for his role in Surprise. Can’t wait to watch the movie!

    Ma Ke and Yang Zi. <3 So, so, so happy to see them reunited for projects now. If only we can get a full length drama hehe.

    WANG KAI. <3 Can never get enough of him. This drama though. I’m having fun just looking at the stills from my twitter and weibo timelines. Would rather wait for Ode for Joy.

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      Ma Ke is SO CUTE!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      LOL Wang Kai looks good in the stills but apparently the drama really sucks, like full of dog blood melodrama and everything.

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        Can’t wait to see more of Ma Ke! I’m particularly interested in his collaboration with Qiao Zhenyu in Si Mei Ren.

        Yup, that’s what I heard. Wang Kai is not enough to make me start watching it. Haha.

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        Nick confirmed participating in Hunan End of the Year Festival. 🙂 Some said he’s singing!

        • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

          Yes he is! And the Hunan organizers gave us a hint to guess: it will be “a soft rock song suitable for his sexy deep voice”

          Liu Tao will be there too and probably singing her Nirvana in Fire song

          Hunan is bringing out the hotshots this year – with TFboys, Li Yifeng, Yang Yang, Wang Kai, etc…

        • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

          There are rumors of Andy Lau being a possible guest at the Hunan concert … I’d REJOICE if he shows up! 🙂

        • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

          Fans are guessing 王妃 (LOL) but some are saying it may be Monica instead (or maybe something else entirely). I’d laugh my ass off if he sings 王妃 hahahahahahaha

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      NY was packed! And I went thinking it wouldn’t two weeks before Xmas. Lol.

      Tian Yu looks amazing does he not in Surprise? Like a handsome villain you can’t help but love… Zheng Shuang showed up at the press conference to support him too. Sweet of her.

      The drama looks crazy to me so yes, I’m not following it anywhere but the kisses look hot. Ahum. *innocent*

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        Lol NY is always packed, Xmas or not. xD

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        Good to know. I’ve always wanted to see the Rockefeller Tree but now I know not to book early. Lol.

        Babyfaced villain. Could’ve fooled me! XD

        Maybe we can just watch cuts of the kiss scenes.

        • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

          Yea, I couldn’t even reach that beautiful tree. Just stared at it from 50 feet away because it is a protected entity. Lol.

  3. 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

    Saw in another trailer that Ding Yin had that relationship with the other woman…hopefully it’s not true. I would really just give up on the show altogether if such 狗血 plot happens…Ding Yin and Wu Xin OTP!!!

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      Yes. That trailer threw me off so I’m confused about who he….will spend the night with. O_O Such trolls, these trailers.

      But my gut feeling said he wouldn’t do what a hero shouldn’t. Please be right!!

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      Cause she’s adorable and I cannot lie. XD

  4. 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

    LOL, I LOVE your comment on “Aaron Kwok confessed his love on weibo the other day. I know he’s secretive but he’s 50 people. 50!!”

    I know love has no boundaries but she is early 20s and he is 50. Goodness, looking at his track records of all the young models he always pick up. I think this guys only love himself and very young girls.

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      Yeah man… he likes them young and tender….

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        OMG LOL. Okay, I saw your comment in the comment bar on the side with no context, so I literally saw “he likes them young and tender” and I was flipping out like what?! what post is this for! And then I checked out the comment to look at the context. LOL don’t know which dark alley my mind was wandering into… Lies. I know perfectly well. Haha.

        • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

          LOL I don’t know about you, but I also saw the comment without context and thought of it as “he likes eating them when they’re young and tender”…. um … yeah…

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        LOL. One word comes to mind. Spring Chicken, someone called me that 30years ago….

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      Thanks Hohliu!

      His records had me rolling my eyes. I do like him as a performing artist but I don’t do well with big age differences – either way.

  5. 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

    Happy Christmas and Have fun in New York. Greetings from London.

  6. 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

    Arron and Jimmy were popular Pop singers from same era. Both have pretty face, extremely hardworking and fun personalities. Arron became for popular than Jimmy in showbiz now but Jimmy is clearly the happier one. He is now settled with a very happy family. Love his new twins. I think he may like a girl next!

  7. 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

    Any updates on whether The Lost Tomb Season 2 is going ahead? And most importantly – whether the only saving grace Yang Yang is returning despite the poor treatment he suffered in the first?

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      TLTS2 will be filmed next year and Yang Yang 90% is not participating, from what I heard. Unfortunately. =/

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        I would lose all respect for Yang Yang if he participates in that POS especially after the horrible treatment they gave him.

        Much better to film with Liu Yifei instead 🙂 Two ancient beauties together in one movie!

        • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

          I don’t think he’ll have time for it. Isn’t he scheduled to film Eastern Palace too? In any case, with that dramatic crap that went on with the company, I really doubt he’ll go back to them unless he loves Kylin. Which it seems like he does. But given his popularity these days, he will have many other offers to choose from.

  8. 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

    Have fun in New York!!! You should come visit me the middle of no where upstate New York

    Chinese Paladin movie ? Mmmm isn’t it a little late?

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      Lol. Miss Hot, imagine an introvert in the middle of nowhere! That’s a frightening sight. 🙂 Muahahah

      They wanna do what they wanna do, even if it’s 10 years later. ~Sigh~

  9. 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

    Did you have a blast in NYC? Catch any Broadway plays? Visit Rockefeller Center? Meet any celebs? Have a safe return.

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      It was a lot of fun, Keane, and a lot of walking. My short legs have never walked so much! We went to the wax museum and Rockefeller center to see the Xmas tree. Other friends went to K-Town to buy facial products. Lol. Such a short time.

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        I agree with Melody, Manhattan is always packed regardless of any holidays.

        LOL! Didn’t anyone warn you everything is walking distance!?! You get to every point faster by walking or taking the subway in Manhattan. Never waste money on taxis. I bet you lost some weight from all the walking. I do. Haha~

        I haven’t visited any wax museums. I normally hang around AMNH and The Guggenheim close by Central Park, or Greenwich Village. I always shop for shoes while I’m there. Designer shoes are cheaper there than anywhere else, it’s a plus that NY shoes normally are trendsetters not yet seen in other States.

        Next time if you can spare a long weekend trip, then try catching a Broadway play, or go over and visit Brooklyn. I believe Daniel Craig is working on Broadway now. LOL! It was chaotic when Hugh Jackman was working on Broadway. LOL!

  10. 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

    Enjoy NYC! Which places did you visit? I so miss the city in this month, particularly the Christmas markets in Union Sq and Bryant Park 🙁

    I’m intrigued to check Nick Wang’s drama above, but also doubt it would be my cup of tea :D.

    I’m excited about Wallace Chung’s new project, although I’m on the fence regarding the cliche material. The Left Ear was a commercial success, but I was underwhelmed by it. Sandra Ma was fantastic and Yang Yang was quite excellent (I’m thrilled he wasn’t playing a goody-two-shoes character), yet even their performances couldn’t really elevate the movie. Too bad, because I like Alec. I hope the producer will find a better scriptwriter this time. A good script (combined with a good direction, of course) many times save a crappy plot.

    Based on the news, Go Lala was ok at the box office. Our Times has been way longer in the theatres, but is still ahead of it. But it looks like Surprise is doing pretty well! I believe it was #1 over the weekend. I’m definitely checking these two out!

    Kap, I also read Zhao Liying just got a Best Actress award at the Macau Film Festival. I’m happy for her, but not too thrilled if it was for The Journey of Flower, LOL :)))

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      It was for HQG…but we can view it as one of the silver linings from the drama?

      Half the press I read says this award is quite prestigious and the other half says the previous recipients are all over the place in terms of how serious it is. Would be interested in hearing what others think…

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      The main attractions – around times square, Madison park, wax museum, and Rockefeller Center.

      Left Ear needed better development to the script and characters. I didn’t really care for anyone except Bala. XD

      First thing I saw when I got home is Li Ying’s pretty face at Macau! But for The Legend of Flower. *insert sad noises* But she looks amazing and sleek in that high pony tail. A classic look.

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        No sure about her stylist. I think there are great Korean and Japanese stylist. China still have catching up to so. Putting big Brand names may not be necessary mean good taste.

        • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

          I thought this was a pretty good look as far as ZLY events go! I have not been a fan of some of her recent looks (i.e., Press conference two-piece for her new movie, the red dress thing for the phone event, her dress for the iQiyi event), but this one I could actually get on board for — don’t LOVE the shoes personally, but the dress and hairstyle and purse work for me.

        • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

          I’m on the opposite end since I liked the majority of her looks in recent events. hehe. The moment she gives me bangs, I’m gonna be upset. XD

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      I didn’t even finish HQG but I do think Liying should get credited for her acting there. She managed the role well, at least in the 26 episodes that I’ve watched.

      The only thing HQG should not be getting is an award for best script or best adaptation of a novel. =P

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      Speaking of Nick again, I saw some pictures of him and Sandra, in black and white, and they’re sizzling hot! I think those are for a magazine or something. Sandra definitely has more personality in those still pictures than Jian Yao does in the LMYID :D.

  11. 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

    have fun in NEW YORK!! *singing… lols*

    Huaaa… Wang Kai’s pics… and those kisses… *exhale-inhale*, gotta have 2nd lead syndrome again and again… uhm well, just re-watched NIF yesterday and wrote the review in my language, so… i always got Wang Kai’s fever. non stop and for this fever, i dont need any medicine. no thanks 😛

    then my fave Wallac Chung. waaaahh, im so happy for him ^^ i know, one day, he’s gonna be ‘someone’ behind the scene. and i hope he will work together with vicky zhao too.. i love them both!

    and talking about wallace chung, and reading about 50 years old not old aaron kwok, i wonder who’s the girl beside them. haha… andy lau already has a family. what about them…???

    Jimmy Lin, i watched him since i was young and now i still read about him in my twenties hehe. forever baby face!!!!

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      Yui, I remember reading something about Wallace already having a significant other in Taiwan. I’m such a bad fan because I haven’t caught up with what he’s been doing for the past year. Lol. But that’s what I remember reading. He’s so low-key so I doubt we’ll hear him announce his marriage. He could be already married for all we know. XD

      There is no cure for this Wang Kai fever!

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        Nope, no cure at all. The WK fever only gets worse 🙂
        Looking forward to seeing WK at the Hunan New Year’s concert 🙂

      • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

        yeah.. i read from our sunshine blog but still curious. he’s 40 something yet not look like 40, hehe… why C-popular actors marry their girlfriends after years of dating… carina lau and tony leung, have they married already? i wonder.
        i really hope wallace has someone in TW. whoever she is, as long as i know he’s happy, im gonna support and be happy for him, hahaha *such a loyal fan*

        huaaaaaa… count me in ladies for wang kai!!!! btw please if anyone knows if he gets invited to Take Care of My refrigerator C-version, please inform me. im watching chen xiao on that program and wonder if wang kai will be invited too..

        • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

          Yup, Carina and Tony got married a few years back. They had a pretty lavish wedding in Bhutan, I think.

          I’m happy for Wallace if he decides to marry or if he’s already married. He’s already in his 40s. It shouldn’t be a surprise for us. Lol.

          I haven’t heard anything about him participating in that show. He just started filming the drama with Qiao En yesterday so he should be busy for the next couple of months.

        • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

          Funny how we mentioned Wallace Chung and there goes the news of his wife and daughter floating out immediately. She was his stylist. Now come out and confirm Wallace! Whether it’s true or not. Let the ladies have their time in the shine. Lol.

          Can we petition to get him on Dad Where Are We Going? heh.

      You get points for trying! 🙂

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      You look so cute next to the figure. I am short too so I understand the walking complaint you made…. Just like folding bikes, they have small wheels till takes more effort to cycle from A to B.

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      Ha, this can be a spin off movie, titled “KEED”. J/k, sorry, can’t help it 😀 (just read the Golden Globe noms).

      Silly pictures are fun! I wish I had taken more (not that I don’t have many already, LOL)

  14. 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

    Lol. Finally watched this week’s ep of Grade One Freshman and realized that the “fresh faces” Jia Nai Liang’s choosing from for his new movie are the kids from the reality show…sigh. So disappointed. Like, maybe I’m too judgey I just don’t really like most of the kids there…but I honestly don’t see too much talent from the students in the show. At all. I just watch the show for its ridiculous practically-always-staged drama (I HATE the stupid attitude and disrespect from those students though, staged or not), and the interesting teacher interactions.

    I REALLY LOOOOVE Liang Ge (JNL) esp after Run for Time, both for his pretty decent acting and his amazing personality, but I really think he’s not making the best choice. Oh well. Love him enough to watch the movie…maybe.

    • 63 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (24)

      But I’m really loving Jia Nai Liang’s presence in the show this ep. As a producer/director(?) looking for potential candidates, he’s super friendly and encouraging, but he can be serious and professional too. Like he’s easy-going while still knowing what he wants and not letting go of his expectations and requirements despite his relationships with the teachers.

      I’m waiting to see his final picks. Hopefully, they are fresh and memorable!

        The thing is, I think a lot of the official Shanghai drama academy students actually can act out their roles realistically, but the truth is, the reality show isn’t as…well motive-free as it tries to sound. The show so obviously focuses on a few students chosen because of their drama-full potential context and NOT, as they say, on talent. And it’s so obvious. They sideline so many decent, but ultimately “normal” and hassle-free students and so the ep shows JNL focusing on the final group of students who “made the cut” through auditions, except it’s so hard to believe that wasn’t edited or scripted be coincidentally the ENTIRE (maybe 99% cuz there was like 1 unfamiliar face) final group was the selected attitude-heavy students the show introduced as the part-time-non-official students. I refuse to believe they were all that much better than the hundreds of other OFFICIAL students who auditioned. Heck, these non-official students are the ones who didn’t even qualify and test into the academy to become an official student, hence the “special talented group” Tong Da Wei’s leading. We’ve seen in brief, very brief and sidelined, clips of some of the acting performance projects that some of the official students did for test and there are some REALLY decent fresh faces who have untapped potential. The non-official students consistently test at the bottom of the rankings, yet the shows seems to suggest that JNL’s choosing from these kids as the resulting group he’s most satisfied with. I don’t want to criticize JNL cuz I ADORE him, but it just looks like he’s choosing these kids cuz they’re known faces and people know them from the show regardless of actual acting ability. I’d like to think JNL’s unhappy with some of this since he’s made some comments (subtly in his trying-to-be-nice-and-off-handed-joking way) about being unsatisfied with what these puppet kids have to offer, but I really don’t know.

        On another note, it’s not even just talent and skill, I don’t like these kids because of there awful (possibly scripted) attitudes and personalities. Not one of them feel honestly genuine. They’re constantly whining about life being unfair about the teachers, the rules, everything. Where do they come up with these kids who manage to complain and turn every opportunity and privilege into punishments? They can be so…ungrateful and disrespectful! Like with Gang Gang — I find him lazy, sullen, unmotivated, treats everything like a joke, and often excuses his mistakes and laziness with words like “I don’t know” and “so difficult”. Yet all the teachers can say is omg he’s so much better now, he’s got a lot of inner substance to offer, he brings up so many surprises….really guys now you’re just sounding desperate to make him look good. So many of the kids make mistakes and act god-awful yet the show just makes comments and editing to garner pity and sympathy, as if in the end they’re in the right and the teachers always end up taking responsibilities and guilt in the voice-overs. If it weren’t for the decent, interesting, and somewhat genuine-feeling teachers and all the amazing cameos, It’s be so so disgusted by these entitled, self-righteous brats. People need to stop catering to them and letting them have such amazing privileged opportunities and turning them to outlets of complaint and whininess.

        One upside is that this show has made me like Yuan Shan Shan as a person more and more. (I already liked Tong Da Wei before and I always thought Huang Zi Zhong was cool…so they don’t count). I’ll probably never like YSS much as an actress unless she improves drastically, but at least now that she’s made a good impression and changed my bad perspective of her, I’m more inclined and more likely to feel forgiving and lenient and sit through more of her dramas before calling out her acting…
