It’s been a while! So many news that I can’t get to them individually.

=======> ♦ If you didn’t see my angry tweet a few days ago, here it is again: I’m about to slap the heck out of Hunan. The Legend of Chusen to air one week earlier. 7/31/16, 2 episodes per week. New promo and another themesong by Zhang Jie is also released. Listen below. I am both pumped (about the series) and annoyed (at HNTV).

=======> ♦ New stills and an intense trailer for sisterhood movie, Soul Mate (七月与安生) with Sandra Ma and Zhou Dong Yu.

=======> ♦ Kris Wu sings a song for the summer melo movie, Sweet Sixteen.

=======> ♦ Boran Jing being surrounded at the airport. When a fangirl falls over, he asks whether she’s okay. Then even takes a little girl’s hand to lead her along. Aww. This is why I love chu!

=======> ♦ Famous Film Score Composer Chun Hung Mak is in charge of scoring the music for The Mystic Nine. Soundtrack to be released next week.

=======> ♦ Before that, Chen Qiao En will film a modern food drama with Tong Da Wei. Booting begins August 1st.

=======> ♦ Sandra Ma and Ma Ke are the leads for loosely translated novel called General Above, I Am Below (将军在上我在下). A quick scan reveals that she’s the badass general while he’s the flowery hero. LOL. Sha Jie Jie returns? Filming begins in October.

=======> ♦ Fan Bing Bing‘s name is up for upcoming historical romance drama Win The World (赢天下), reuniting with the team behind The Empress of China. The story follows a legendary widow as she makes her way to become China’s first female entrepreneur.

=======> ♦ The leads for Royal Highness (回到明朝当王爷之杨凌传) are Jiang Jin Fu, Wayne Liu, and Crystal Yuan Bing Yan. Filming began on July 21st. Ha! This is why Ya Tou died so early in The Mystic Nine. She has to romance a new highness! Lol. But competition yo, remember when I said in a previous batch that the male lead is a player like Wei Xiao Bao!? Tskk! Tskk! Er Ye won’t forgive you!

=======> ♦ Ruby Lin and Wallace Huo‘s wedding will be held in Bali at Bvlgari hotel on July 31st. Tiffany Hsu is our bridesmaid. No jeans please. LOL. 😀

=======> ♦ The popular webdrama Go Princess Go is gonna….get a Korean adaptation. Oh crap. A remake so soon?!

=======> ♦ Hu Ge is rumored for the drama adaptation of Ding Mo’s novel You And Me In Time (你和我的倾城时光). Dang, this author’s novels be selling like hot cakes. At this point, it’s pretty much positive because fans posted a picture of Hu Ge reading the novel!

=======> ♦ Li Ying at various events for her endorsement products. Looks like her new style is the decorated one-sided earring. Stylish. She has a rumored drama with Kris and Lu Han and I’m not sure how I feel about it. Also, she won’t be attending Happy Camp Episode with the cast of Chusen due to packed schedule (she filmed HC with William and Jessica Jung a week ago). Is it gonna kill somebody for her to attend Wallace and Ruby’s wedding?!! Wahhhh. C’mon!

=======> ♦ New Promo For Rookie Agent Rouge (which doesn’t new…). Temp airing date: 9/27/16.

=======> ♦ A quick interview with Sina: When asked about possibly being threatened about the number of bromances in The Mystic Nine, Li Ying replies that she has no worries, “The moment I appear, it’s a knock out.” Lol. “Why is Xin Yue so cute?” Li Ying says she has worked with the director before so he knows her very well and the day of filming, he even brought her a bunch of food and let her take the reign in portraying the character. Asked if she worries about Chusen novel fans not being friendly with the drama script changes, she responds that every novel adaptation will undergo the same scrutiny and debate.

When asked whether she likes bangs or no bangs, she says she likes bangs (reason: resembles manga character more!) OMG. Girl, you opposite from me! Arg.

If she can pick again, she would still pick to play the character Bi Yao (cause her name sounds nice. Lol.)

Li Ying describes Yang Zi as a lovable person and hopes that fans can love and support the drama. Love her but also be tolerant.

“When will you film modern dramas?” She’s selective, looking for creative scripts to express a different side to the audience. Yes! Be selective!

    So many good news I can’t pick my favourite! Okay, maybe I can: Li Ying’s answers to The Mystic Nine questions. She’s absolutely, completely right of course: Xin Yue is a scene-stealer!

    Happy to hear that Hu Ge is rumoured to star in Dingmo’s novel adaptation! After Ballad of the Desert, Nirvana and The Disguiser, I need more of this man’s talent. And fingers crossed he will be back for Nirvana 2 along with the rest of cast. Oh and please keep Wu Lei as his puppy/sidekick.

    Now, who do I need to beg/kill to get Li Ying and Hu Ge together in a drama?

    • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

      We need to form like an altar and a praying circle. I think they will eventually work together, since she did voice her request, someone big ought to catch on. ;D

    • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

      I’ll help you kill for this,oops i mean beg XD
      Should we make a petition?

    Excited for Ruby and Wallace’s wedding! So easy for remember to their wedding date because that’s also my parents’ anniversary hehe.

    I really enjoyed 你和我的傾城時光 and to hear Hu Ge’s name attached to it makes me beyond happy. Now who would be a good fit for Lin Qian, the main girl? Not a Mary Sue but a very smart and independent woman. Let’s hope the scriptwriter sticks to that.

    On the other hand, 他與月光為鄰 He and Moonlight as Neighbors (the book’s official title is StarDrift) makes me worried. I don’t know how receptive SARFT is to extraterrestrial themes and I’m afraid the production team would have to change the premise, which would really suck. But I digress. If there’s any sci-fi Ding Mo novel to be adapted, this would be the safest one to work with.

    Sandra and Ma Ke’s drama sounds interesting though! Give me a badass female general any day.

    As for Go Princess Go getting a Korean adaptation…LOL. The thought of that crazy drama still makes me laugh.

    Li Ying ❤ Yes, please be selective about your scripts. And yes please pick a modern one soon.

    • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

      Congratulations to your parents Polaris! More good things to celebrate. hee!

      I know many miss her in modern dramas but I just can’t bring myself to finish a modern Chinese drama. They just drag, drag, drag. In period dramas, I don’t mind as much. Lol.

  3. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    What drama is li ying doing with kris and luhan?

  4. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    HG and ZLY would be ideal. lol

    Most of her projects are releasing now. I wonder what will be her next project after Princess Agent.

  5. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    Hu Ge is rumor to be in a lot project, ‘Ode to joy 2’, ‘Nirvana 2’ and ‘to be a better man 2’ but it was never confirm…. either way I wish to see him onscreen again and to film another drama…. or two so I can get him back to back again…. waiting for ‘hunting ground’

    Talking about Hu Ge rumor project “You and me in time’, for his next leading lady, can I have Jiang Xin paired up with him please…. I saw an interview of Jiang Xin (correct me if im wrong) was supposed to be in ‘the Disguiser’ as Hu ge love interest… so can I get them pair up this time…

    • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

      I’m in favor of new pairings so Jiang Xin would be great, especially how she’s glowing like a butterfly lately!

  6. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    Jing Boran <3. Finally get to see him on screen again, though I'd like a drama return soon too ~~.

    Not really buying Luhan as Wu Xie in Daomu, Li Yifeng (for all his acting shortcomings) fit the role better imo. Such a pity they messed up that drama because Yang Yang and LYF were perfectly cast (visually).

    • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

      Agreed! I would like to see him in a full-length drama soon.

  7. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    Li Ying’s so gorgeous! Sorry for my tardiness, but lol I actually just (literally 10 minutes ago) finished Female Prime Minister (Legend of Lu Zhen) for the first time. Despite not being a fan of Yumama or palace dramas in general, I can see why it’s so loved. Finally understand the power of the Chen Xiao/LiYing ship (that’s long since sailed). Anyway, glad she had such a powerful drama to put her in the limelight. Sorry guys, but despite Flower being the one that really pushed her to the popularity she has today, Prime Minister was infinitely better that Hua Qian Gu…so much better. Gah so emotional!

    Btw LOVING LiYing’s look in the white dress with the side part. She looks unbeatable amazing with her hair down in the side part like that. Lol Kappy, personally I rather like LiYing with bangs too. It makes her look very cute – but she also looks great without the bangs.

    So excited about Hu Ge! My ultimate bias! Know nothing about Ding Mo’s books except what I’ve read (from ShuShengBar) of the synopsis (and really only truly familiar with Snail), but seriously, I’d take almost (keyword almost…Hu Ge’s got to have standards) anything to see HuGe back on my screen. I’m a bit apprehensive because despite liking GoGoal Fighting as a fluffy drama full of heart and despite anticipating Lie Chang as a (hopefully) true epic, I also am wary of Hu Ge’s modern dramas. To be completely honest, I haven’t liked a single of his modern dramas previously (altho he was still semi-idol drama-ing at the time, with Tang Yan and Ivy) (altho I also hear he was really good in Life Revelations or something, the more recent 2014 drama where his character was in a relationship with an older woman..but that kind of real-life-angsty-family-drama isn’t really my thing). He seriously has a bad track record picking modern drama, in my book. Altho hopfully Lie Chang will totally change that.

      Oh Juli, why you gotta bring up my old wound. 🙁 Female Prime Minister is my favorite drama of hers. The plot manages to be somewhat coherent and the love story just about killed me every single time I do a rewatch, most recently was last year, after Chen Xiao exposed his romance with Miss Chen. Their chemistry was undeniable and hence it hurt so freakin’ good (and tragically in real life for a fangirl. But one must move on…)

  8. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    Thanks for the batch!!!

    Excited for Love O2O!!! I think the movie versiom has more budget for good cgi. Angelababy is definitely my female lead for the role for sure.

    Cant wait for Chusen!!! Yang Zi is gorgeous. Heeeheee!!

    Ma Ke has so many dramas, looking forward to him and Sandra. She looks badass in time raiders. Approve.

    Agreed with you guys, Hu Ge with Li Ying or Jiang Xin or Liu Tao for me.

  9. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    I KNEW Zhang Jie would sing a song for Chusen and he’s a great singer but why the hell is the song so techno and pop when it’s supposed to be a period / wuxia drama???

    Always here for more Sha Jiejie! Ma Ke looks gorgeous in period costumes and flowing long hair and stuff so that’s cool 🙂

      • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

        But WHY did they get this techno song to be the opening theme when they should’ve used the Hero song they had before instead? You know the one that was on the soundtrack you posted before? Like, that one sounds WAY more like an opening theme for a period/wuxia but apparently they’re not using it… What a waste!

        Zhang Jie is great and the song is good in terms of beat and everything but they should’ve used it as an insert song for fight scenes and stuff, and used Richie’s Hero song as the opening theme… Wouldn’t that make more sense???

        • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

          I’m thinking that they may split the songs, used 1 for 25 episodes, then change to the second one. 😀

      • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

        Hmm well I guess splitting the songs makes sense…
        Maybe they’ll do what you said and make the Hero song the opening for half of the eps and then make the techno song the opening for the other half…
        For such a long series like Chusen it makes sense to have more than 1 opening and ending theme song…

  10. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    hope the idol drama doesn’t become real. i want her to do more serious roles, instead of taking on idol dramas. with both kris and luhan, the female character will definitely be written not very… good. lols.

  11. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    We heard the song before, this is the mv with new footages. Looks like sad ending for our epic love triangle. Sigh.

    • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

      I love the melody of the ending theme the best but the singer sucks *shrug* Oh well…

      BUT I really like the scenes they included in this MV and I especially like how they turn some scenes into ink paintings every now and then! Also the scenery looks great!

  12. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    Patiently waiting for The Legend of Chusen to air 😀 but only two episodes per week!? Boooo

    And why is every one getting married in Bali, lol.

    • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

      WTF Hunan 2 eps a week for a 50 something episode drama, that’s like more than half a year!

      Dunno why everyone’s getting married in Bali

    • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

      LOL, living in Indonesia, I personally think that Bali is oversaturated. Sure it’s nice there, but already a little too touristy. I would recommend Labuan Bajo for its fantastic diving spots, awesome view, and a hop to the Komodo Island. Now you’ll get an exotic wedding there :)))

      Bali seems to be a favorite wedding venue for Chinese celebs now. I think it was Maldives before.

      • 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

        Sweet 🙂
        Thanks for all the tips about the nice places! 🙂

  13. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    Looks like Hu Ge did not make 2016 as his year of rest after all. Hope he takes some time off for much deserved
    beauty sleep after back to back trips from China to Europe and then from China to New York, all within the last month or so.

  14. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    I need to join this prayer circle for Hu Ge and Li Ying working together

  15. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    I love the OST for Sweet Sixteen. Kris Wu has a very soothing, pleasant and sad voice. The song itself is very heartbreaking too. Mando-ballad done right! Here’s the MV with subs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANntmuywdGQ

    As for the Liying/Luhan/Kris rumor.. that’s very doubtful considering the mess that already occurred between Luhan’s team and Jing Boran’s team regarding who gets to be the lead in their movie. Kris’ team and Luhan’s team would never agree to the other being the lead and their fans are just going to be warring all the time. I wouldn’t mind it but the drama would be too much and would distract from the actual project.

  16. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    I really love reading all your articles.

    A K-version of “Go Princess Go”…I really can´t imagine it…I love the drama with all its craziness and quirkiness…but…they would have to change a lot..so that the Korean house wives won´t go on the street and demonstrate again…I only need to think “Life is Beautiful”..were they did just that because of the first ever open gay couple in a K-drama….and “Go Princess Go” is definitely not a purely “straight” story.

    More Hu Ge…oh yes 😀

  17. 33 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/ENT News (37)

    The Legend of Chusen…. finally! I’ve been waiting for Chusen and Novoland for like forever! Currently enjoying Novoland but it’s going to be a happy party with Chusen joining the mix! For some unknown reason, I’m interested in the “Never Said Goodbye” movie. I’m in the mood for melo after an overabundance of fantasy! I’ve shelved Ice Fantasy and don’t even get me started on Demon Girl! Those two are just pretties with no substance. I call them “The Blonde Dramas”! 😉

    I’ve also gone back to watching KDramas after a 3-year hiatus. Currently watching W- Two Worlds and Bring It On Ghost! Love W! Watching Lee Jong Suk in a drama again reminded me of his role in “I Hear Your Voice” – one of my fav KDrama! That young man is going places! I read somewhere that he’s going to be in a period-fantasy-romance Chinese drama called “Jade Lover”. Not sure if I should watch that one since most Korean-Chinese collab dramas do not do well……What do you think, Kap?

What do you think?
