Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

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.

Click to Expand Batch News
=======> ♦ Gorgeous Posters for star-studded film, The Wasted Times (罗曼蒂克消亡史), with Ge You, Zhang Zi Yi, Tadanobu Asano, Han Geng, Du Chun, Gillian Chung, Wallace Chung and more. From the comical trailers, I can’t tell that it’s a thriller about a Japanese spy trying to locate a former friend in order to uncover the truth of his family massacre in Shanghai years ago. Out in theaters on December 23rd.

=======> ♦ In addition, hot commodity Yang Yang has a new song too! “Love is a Crazy Word,” to celebrate his 25th birthday on 9/9. Very catchy song. Liu Yi Fei also showed up at his birthday party fanmeeting. So sweet.

 photo 40news 41.jpg

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.

=======> ♦ Jackie Chan will receive the Academy Honorary Award for his outstanding and legendary international film star career. Say what you will about Jackie, but he is the only Asian star whose name is recognized world wide.

=======> ♦ Wang Kai and Wang Zi Wen‘s When a Snail Falls in Love will compete head to head with its brother, Memory Lost, in October. WHYYYYYY? Why can’t I catch a break?!!

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. But, I really do like the fresh cast!

=======> ♦ Beside having a movie and a drama version, Three Lives Three Worlds – Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms will also get a webdrama, as announced before. They have silently started filming with a new face.

=======> ♦ Actress Yao Di and Qiao Zhen Yu are attached to new time-traveling drama, Man Man Qing Luo (蔓蔓青萝). Yes, our heroine wakes up in the past. And here I thought this trend ended already. Lol.

=======> ♦ TFBoys will star in a new drama called Boy Hood (我们的少年时代) with fellow teenage actress Zhang Zi Feng. She’s very cute! Was in A Love For Separation (小别离) and Sunshine Days (璀璨人生). In teacher roles are Xue Zhi Qian and Li Xiao Lu. Press conference on September 5th and the boys were wearing baseball uniforms so that’s the sport of choice.

=======> ♦ 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.

 photo 40news 32.jpg.jpg

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….

 photo 40news 34 1.jpg

 photo 40news 34 2.jpg

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.

    About the Demon Girl? Omg it was horrible to me and I gave up after the first few episodes. I wonder what others think too, the posters came out amazing at first though.

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      We were all pretty smitten with the stills and the songs! Darn it, Yumama!

      • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

        It was really bad. I DO NOT recommend. I repeat. Don’t waste your time. I can’t believe I finished the drama though! Blame it on boredom from chasing Zhu Xian lol

        • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

          You FINISHED IT?! Hannah! It has to have some good right? Second lead syndrome? Pretty?….

    william chan mv gave me a headache, so many spinning of the cameras. maybe he should play the lead in kill me love me instead.

    a big woah at zhang yi shan’s scandal…… he was groping???!! lols. kids.

    wanted to see more wuxia scenes in kris’ mv.

    li ying and the giraffe video!!! hahahaha. love her answer about the ideal man too. WHY WHY WHY are they still bringing up the stone-aged man bai zi hua? it should be jing yu and xiao fan now!! or cheney chen. hehehe

    thanks for the batch, alice!

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      Fans are saying Bi Yao is the third leg between Xiao Fan and Jing Yu! Lol. Xiao Fan has too many bromances going on. This dude. XD

      • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

        Don’t for get our resident inventor is the 3rd wheel. Biyao is only the 4th and Xue Qi is the spare. There will be more spare tyers latter.

        • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

          OMG. THE SPARE. Our leading ladies…. LOL.

  3. 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

    The song in Kris’s promo! It IS a classic wuxia song (well, a remade version). I don’t remember where it’s from, but my mom used to listen to that ALL THE TIME. I’m VERY familiar with it; one of my fav oldies.

      • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

        Oh yes, I recognize the original and the beats now!! I LOVED THE CHORUS IN THAT VERSION!! Wakin Chau!!! Epic Song.

        Wish they would put together a small wuxia-themed mv for this song instead. Would have enhanced the nostalgia level several notches.

        Great catch, Juli!

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      that’s a song by Taiwanese singer/song writer Zhou Huajian

    So, we have Sohu who did the novel adaptation of one of the Medical Examiner Qin Ming novels, and now LeTV is doing the other novel adapations? Completely different casts of course.

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      Hehe, they are sitting around a pot and pulling ideas (aka authors) out from it. Lol.

      • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

        I wonder if it’s gonna be like w/ the Ghost Blows out the Lights movies? The Medical Examiner Qin Ming Sohu drama is using novel #3, whereas the LeTV one is using the title of the first novel.

        I guess I wouldn’t be surprised if we get the movie adaptations next, eh?

        • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

          I sure hope it doesn’t follow Ghost Blows Out The Candles which really overdid the milking. One good adaptation is enough to satiate the thirst, instead of making multiple mediocre movies and dramas.

          Good thing the author has multiple novels!

  5. 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

    Agree! Eddie needs to return to dramaland soon sobs! I miss seeing his face on screen so much!
    I didn’t know YangYang was that close with LYF! But they look so cute standing together! Like siblings!!!
    Both the dramas adapted from DingMo’s novels are coming out in Oct? Im looking forward to Oct now! Im out of dramas to watch after WeiWei ended sobs! It was such a happy fluffy drama!

    Aww why is Yoo In Na switched out? Im actually looking forward to seeing her in the sequel!
    Sequel for the classic TVB drama? Im all ready for it! The cast looks good but hopefully the plot is good!

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      LOL@ Like siblings! XD

      RE Yoo In Na – the souring between China and Korea. Which makes me confused when news of Big Bang’s Top with Yuan Shan Shan in a drama came out.

      The cast for the sequel is up to my liking too! Missed Steven Ma!

      • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

        Lol…don’t they find it quite ironic that they are filming the sequel to the remake of a Korean drama? Smh at them mixing politics into the entertainment world. Poor Yoo In Na! Dragged out halfway through filming, hopefully she gets her rightful compensation!

        • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

          These productions like to shoot themselves in the same foot… many times. XD

  6. 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

    Hmmm, one of the rare posts where I’m more interested in the movies rather than the tv shows. I want to see the one with Eddie, hot uncles+Vic and the very first one about the japanese spy.
    Thank you, Kap, for the new inspiration :))))

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      We have very similar tastes in movieland, Nell. heh.

      Definitely all in for Eddie and hot uncles. 8D

  7. 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

    Looks like the entertainment world decided to go all music land this week! Only thing that shoecked me is that scandal with Zhang Yishan. WTF?! Totally unexpected >< My baby. But I mean, it really doesn't matter to me what his sexual orientation is. Also, as young as he is, this may just be some experimental thing too. Don't want to judge him.
    He has the talent to stand high even with such a scandal, but I am worried for him as his success was hardly won this year. Hopefully nobody will be too harsh toward him 🙁

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      Them young and wild kids. Lol. I hope they don’t snipe him off any of his new projects. Tread lightly, little one!

      • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

        Tbh, it’s such a normal thing for most teens. It just highlights the unrealistic expectations of society on celebs that people just de-humanize them and forget, oh yeah, everybody does these things…all the time. I hope he’s more careful though. Even if fans generally couldn’t care less about his sexual orientation, the “officials” (companies, directors, producers) are definitely inflexible and unreasonable in that aspect.

        He posted an apology I think? On his Weibo. I couldn’t really read all of it, but I think it was something along the lines of, his friends were in town, and he took the fun too far (I think he meant just messing around fun and not the sexual fun??? my Chinese skills are meager…) and something something something.

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      The time when Johnny Depp was in my area, I missed him too. T_________T *understand your feels*

  8. 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

    I am in the middle of watching Yang Yang’s huge birthday party. The video almost two hours long so it will take me a while. Lol. But I did see the part where Liu Yifei showed up. At first the host tricked him into thinking that she wasn’t able to make it, and poor Yang Yang did actually look disappointed. Lo and behold, in she came with the director and producer of Three Lives. Since the director, YY and LYF are all Virgos, the producer joked that it was a pain working with them. Lol. Both YY and LYF were both gifted with model replicas of their respective residences in the movie. YY’s management company also bought and named a star after him.

    Ah, so it will be a Ding Mo vs Ding Mo month. No doubt that Snail would have a higher production quality but no idea what Yumama will throw at us for a surprise.

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      You’re a bigger fan than I am, Polaris. I only hunt for the songs he sang! hehe Them all being Virgos. Puahhaha.

      I hope for Yang Rong and Bai Yu’s sake, it is at least decent with a crack quality!

      • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

        Yang Yang is so silly to watch so that keeps me entertained. =P

        I certainly hope so!

  9. 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

    Between Ba ZiHua and XiaoFan, I choose FoYe 😛 but she did good. I think she is getting better with her answers.

    You should pick up Chusen again, it is really now (at least for me). The plot started moving faster after ep. 14 and now they are having a lot of cool battles and I like how they are done. BiYao and XiaoFan are also adorable. I dont know if XiaoFan is getting more charming or if I just warmed up to him, but I don’t dislike him anymore.
    I really didn’t like WC’s MV nor the song.

    The China-Korea tensions are weird. Some people are getting the boot but others are not. Also they are still airing K-dramas online.

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      I know right? Why didn’t they put Fuo Ye in the list? Bai Zi Hua is sooo last year. LOL. Fuo Ye FTW!

      Good to know Chusen’s picking up! I at least want to watch until Ghost Tear appears! 😀

      • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

        Yes! People really don’t like Mystic, and while the plot is definitely lacking (like nonexistent), I think just the setting of Mystic is awesome and I rather like some of the characters (read Xin Yue, sometimes Er Ye, and the supporting cast), and the CHEMISTRY between William and ZLY was FANTASTIC! All my dashed dreams from Legend of Zu were revived with the Zhang Qi Shan/Xin Yue ship. So so so so awesome.

  10. 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

    For those who want to listen to Yang Yang sing… heres a clip I got from weibo of the 3 songs he sang during his fanmeeting! Enjoy!

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      Boy is lipsyncing for his life!

      I believe dancing is his forte? He should have just danced.

  11. 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

    Ahhhh… the I Belonged trailer with Deng Chao and Zhang Ai Tian is so good! The one with Yang Yang & Bai Bai He is light, funny and happy, and this one is… how to put it? Sentimental? It has a lot of feels! When is it due to screen, Kap? (Sorry if you mentioned it earlier)

    Speaking of Chusen (which I’m still following), I just read on another forum about Viki’s new policy not allowing fan channels anymore, probably due to copyright issues. Chusen (and some other shows) that are not licensed by Viki, will not continue there. This is super saddening to me, though it won’t stop me from continue watching. It is unfair to those who have spared their valuable time and energy to do all the subbing works, pro bono. While I’m all for protecting IPR, it’s really not helpful for production houses/TV stations to go all out targeting fansubbed videos, thus limiting access to their productions.

    Yang Yang and Liu Yi Fei — so much prettiness! It’s pretty quiet both from the drama and movie camps of the Three Lives. Any news, even a small one? Tee hee. I chuckled a bit seeing the photos from YY’s birthday though. For some reason LYF looks like YY’s teacher. I must find that Three Lives family picture again 😀

    Alan Yu’s a busy bee! He seems to be in every new project out there LOL (same with Wallace Chung)

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      I Belonged is coming out very soon, Lenje! September 29th! 😀

      Oh No. Fan channels. We live for fan channels. That’s unfortunate, saddening, and maddening at the same time. So much hard work put in and then being targeted. T___T

      Three Lives releases a poster for YY’s bday but that’s about it. Not sure how the legal controversy works out since they gave me headaches just reading about it.

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      No trailer for Three Lives yet. Yang Yang actually thought he was getting that as a present at his birthday bash, but nope. Nothing yet! I’m anxious!

  12. 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

    So many updates! I want to watch The Wasted Times.

    Kris looks great in historical attire. He should act in a wuxia drama or something.

    I liked watching the song production process for the CF song – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=py8uEQR-cZM He’s very serious about his music.

    I don’t like that dress on Liying.

    I hope Zhang Yishan isn’t being attacked because of this. China needs to chill with the homophobia.

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      Is there even any one attacking Zhang Yishan?

      People need to chill with looking for homophobia before it even starst.

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      He already issued an apology for his behavior. He didn’t explicitly explain what he did, but apparently he urinated in public in addition to groping his friend. Personally, he doesn’t need to issue a public apology to his friend. That can be done in private and I’m sure his friend would understand the circumstance, if that friend has seen more than enough intoxicated people in his life. The public urination though? If he did indeed do that then I would say he did the right thing by apologizing. His apology seems genuine, explaining that he hadn’t seen the friend in two years and got carried away with drinking. He promises to drink less in the future.

      Haven’t seen any attacks on his sexual orientation though. In fact, a lot of headlines that come up mention the urination first and then the groping. So there. Easy to see which part of the scandal is more worth mentioning.

      As for China and homophobia—my thing is that people from the West need to give China time. Yes, Chinese economic is rapidly growing and has been for the last decade or so, but you do realize that its people have much to catch up with, right? The US, where I’m from, only started to legalize gay marriage as a whole nation in June 2015. And yet there are still plenty of homophobic people. LGBT hate crime is still rampant. So how do you change a nation like China? Telling them to chill does nothing. In fact, I think they’re starting to become a little more lenient with homosexuality-themed productions. Can’t expect them to fully embrace the LGBT community but baby steps are good enough for now.

      Just my two cents.

      • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

        Agree! I didn’t know about the public urination part though! Yeah. That’s gonna need an apology. Like, honestly I don’t really think either are particularly scandalous, but since the urination does involve the public and is more a ethics/decency sort of thing, I can see it warranting an actual “official” apology.

  13. 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

    Rumors has it that Legend of Ancient Sword Movie version has cast Huang Zi Tao.


    I swear YY doesn’t sound like himself when he sings.

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      Well, the drama version was Li Yifeng so it’s not like he’ll be replacing an acting juggernaut.

      I personally don’t think Huang Zitao is handsome though but I’m sure some people find him appealing, I guess.

      • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

        Definitely, don’t think LYF wide-eyed puppy look ‘acting’ works all the time.

        I can’t look at HZT anymore without thinking – is he gonna cry again?

    • 48 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (40)

      I’m looking forward to him in period attire, he’s actually very beautiful too look at and pretty promising as an actor already.

      But this absolute need to point out how you feel about his looks, though.
      That and passing negative judgement on his acting when none of his films have been released. Chill a bit.
