New banner to celebrate batch 40!
Not much going on in dramaland but music land? Everyone and their grandmas decided to drop a single this past week. Lol. I keep on pushing this batch back and removing bullet points to make individual posts. It’s been…two weeks now? But yes, lots of news.
=======> ♦ Eddie Peng has a few rumored projects and I do hope to see him back in dramaland. In Operation Mekong (湄公河行动), he is with Zhang Han Yu in the latest action movie based on the Mekong River massacre.
=======> ♦ New Promos for Ariel Lin‘s movie, Another Woman (234说爱你), with actor Qin Hao. EEKKK!! Our girl is all grown up with kisses and bed scenes!

=======> ♦ Chinese Odyssey Part 3 Trailer #3!

=======> ♦ At the event for Burberry on 9/6, Ruby Lin officially announces her pregnancy to the reporters for the first time. When asked about married life, she confesses that they are both pretty busy but they still find time to dine and stroll during the night. She hasn’t experienced these things before. While they are simple activities, she’s having fun and feeling happiness. Awww!!
=======> ♦ Here is a sneaky low quality trailer of Lee Jong Suk and Zheng Shuang‘s drama, Jade Lover.

=======> ♦ After a gathering with friends, young actor Zhang Yi Shan is caught in scandalous behavior with another male. Oh krap.

=======> ♦ Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi, Alan Yu Meng Long, and Wallace Chung are now attached to the drama adaptation novel (loosely translated) Liang Sheng, Maybe We Won’t Be In Pain Anymore (涼生，我們可不可以不憂傷). NOOOOOO. I really don’t like story line where they are raised as kids/siblings and grow up loving each other. T___T Ma Tian Yu has already been seen on set so he’s confirmed.

It’s tentatively called Deep Palace Scheme. Filming to begin in February of 2017. The original has a romance that still got me scratching on how they ended up together, despite me liking Steven and Charmaine, I was shipping her with Moses!! Lol.

=======> ♦ Zhao Li Ying‘s News Corner: The day Days of Our Own came out, Li Ying surpassed 40 million followers on weibo! Chen Qiao En surpassed 50 millions just last week. Crazy.
Li Ying became the endorser for this Chando Lipstick. They photoshopped her so much that I didn’t recognize her. But the CF video is bright and bubbly, reminding me of Korean pop MVs. Check it out below.
Here is the promotional event she attended for Chando Lipstick on the 5th that I ripped off of QQ. The first thing they asked her to do is sit like Bi Yao. Lol. It’s pretty boring but she looks gorgeous in both dresses. I uploaded them into two parts since my free account doesn’t allow clips over 20-minutes.
The messy chest area….
She posted this on her weibo, symbolizing her evilness about running for the hills when trouble comes and leaving Prince Shawn behind. All with a cackle! LOL. Ripped it below.
On 9/6, Li Ying posted on Weibo: Days of Our Own (Our Ten Years) is not hōng hōng liè liè (meaning epic and spectacular), it is simply between gain and loss. In the years of our youth, when we were the most energetic, beside love, there is still friendship. We live together in the dorm, each of us embracing our dreams – some might be ordinary, others might be difficult. Even if we pick different paths for our life, once the music of Our Ten Years plays, I will always recall the memories of our time – very simple, very ordinary. ❤ Thank-you for staying by [my side] once. Friends are the family you chose.
Whenever you’re sad, just play this video of Giraffe Li Ying. Lol.
The Legend of Chusen reveals another music video, “Qing Yun Zhi” by Jam Hsiao. Lots of new footages, including the climax scene. I need to get back to watching the drama. No motivation to continue this past week. The TV airing schedule is also going to air more episodes to catch up with the online release. Not important to us international fans since we watch on youtube anyway.
At Bazaar Charity Night the other night, Li Ying has some fun answering questions.
1. If you could teach a kindergarten class, what subject would it be?
Any subject that doesn’t deal with numbers/arithmetic. Like history class, I could share some experience. (Ha!)
2. Bai Zi Hua and Zhang Xiao Fan are closest to your ideal man?
This topic I don’t want to think about because my ideal man changes every day. (I like her answer, having an ideal “set” of qualities to find a man limits your vision and option in seeing MORE of the person.)
3. What have your fans done that moved you?
They are doing it right now by attending this charity event tonight. I’m very happy and hope that I can whatever I can to help those in need.
