Tong Li Ya is the rumored female lead, set to begin filming in 2017, so the game is still open for other actresses. Gorgeous pair though!

 photo 43batch-42.jpg

=======> ♦ Actress Jiao Jun Yan (Medical Examiner Dr. Qin) will lead food drama Problematic Restaurant Bistro Fou (问题餐厅) about 7 different women. It’s the drama remake of Japanese drama, Mondai no Aru Restaurant aka A Restaurant with Many Problems. She’s sticking with her short haircut too. I think she looks good in it.

=======> ♦ Zhang Xue Ying (Tornado Girl) is chosen for the remake of Kdrama, School 2015, which starred Kim So Hyun and Yook Sung Jae. She will be portraying twins just like the original. My heart still bleeds for Sung Jae!!

    I have heard that legend of Chusen has second season,the production is already complete,the cast remains the same,it will be released next year. Buy I just know that there is season 3. Wow, that’s long. Hope they won’t take it too long to released season 3 like the lost tomb. And I hope the cast stays the same,even it’s almost impossible. Did anyone get the news about Li Yi Feng song for Chusen that haven’t released yet? Is it going to become theme song for the second season?Thank you so much Happy for sharing the news. Btw I saw the commercial starred by Yang Yang and Zhang Tian Ai. It’s so cute 🙂

    • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

      its basically one drama split into two parts for more money-making, making a part 2 with only 18 episodes. that is unheard of.

      season 3, they won’t return, i can see it already. in yang zi’s recent interview she spilled that her and xiao fan will get together “so its worth the wait!!”

      it makes sense for another song, a whole new chapter for xiao fan as ghost tear.

      • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

        Yang Zi comment was more likely towards the book ending then season 2 ending since season two was originally a side story but since fan of the original novel very angry at the changes they said it’s season two and will follow on the story. Season 3 is something they annouced without any definite proof that it will go ahead. The online ratings are very good but the tv rates are very bad for a drama with so much investment.

        As a fan of the novel I hope they just leave it alone, they already ruined it beyond repair. If they make a 3 season with a different cast then might was well not make it at all.

        The person I feel the most sorry for in this whole mess would be Li Yi Feng, he is a fan of the original work and backed this project for years, only now for them to ruin his character and changed the plot so much. But he can’t say anything because it would be inconsiderate and unprofessional of him.

        • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

          but from the beginning they said they would keep the book ending, which is xiao fan will end up with xue qi, despite the whole non-existence of their romance NO MATTER HOW MUCH they ruined the storyline.

          they filmed the whole drama and now only decided to split it to make it seem like they are taking fans reactions into consideration.

          but ultimately it’s all for the money from the various sponsors Li yi feng stars in, ex. the oppo phone. lol.

          “As a fan of the novel I hope they just leave it alone, they already ruined it beyond repair. If they make a 3 season with a different cast then might was well not make it at all.”
          => I agree. It’s already ruined . Poor LYF, his character was butchered .
          And they made Yang Zhi to ask people to watch Season 2*LOL*. Probably because they knew that fan of the original novel was really angry.

          Well, if they do really make Season 3 with the same cast (which I doubt), doesn’t that mean the ‘Season 2’ won’t cover untuk the end of the book ?

          Anyway, it’s hard to watch in peace if the prod company alwasy uses tricky words. You just don’t know what to expect.

        • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

          “doesn’t that mean the ‘Season 2’ won’t cover untuk the end of the book ?”
          => should be ‘until the end of the book’. Sorry

        • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

          Didn’t LYF butcher his own character with that wide eyed look on his face 24/7 in Chusen? Rofl.


          Not. He’s really so bad it hurts D:

    • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

      Both Li Yi Feng and Yang Zi has a solo song they sang that would be release for season 2.

      Not sure why Zhao Li Ying didn’t have a song, I’m very sure she sings as well, but it’s likely that she simply didn’t have the time to record one. The girl’s so busy all the time.

  2. 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

    lol. another exo boy casting! i sure hope this won’t become another fanwar like the other taos thread…… what is with fans and non fans?

    hu ge’s neck tattoo as a villain is sexy!

    another forgettable song by gui gui. hope she comes back acting. miss her.

    Zhang Han and Gulnazar might be the next couple to get married. zhang seems the type to love long and hard. and she seems so meek and quiet around him. as long as she’s happy.

    lol at all the photoshopped photos on princess agents. 5 months of filming… so long…. li ying is ultra focused on this project. it will be a big one for her.

    • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

      I know. ZH is the alpha in the relationship. He prefers the quiet girls.

      • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

        Yea, ZH is definitely the stronger one in relationships. I hope Gulnazar is stronger than Zheng Shuang though and doesn’t break. As long as they are happy.

  3. 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

    That shopping commercial of YY and ZTA <3
    I was fangirling for a bit then ran to my cousin to tell her the news lol.
    Hmmm Legend of the Cat Demon… At first I was slightly interested due to Huang Xuan and cats, but with Zhang Tian Ai in the mix I might check it out (when it does hit theaters).
    Glad Annie Liu is breaking into HK. She should do more stuff.
    Agree with frea, Gui Gui needs to come back to acting 🙁
    All those filter pictures from ZLY lol. I like the one with the demon ears 😀 ZLY would be great in a demon role (I don't remember if she star as one before? )
    Want to check out Happy Mitan for ZLY's cameo but omg 80 episodes?! Goodness.

    • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

      Hmmmm ~….if you count the demon role in Hua Qian Gu minus the ears, she did do one! Lol.

      I want Shawn and her to reunite and have a happy ending!

  4. 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

    The only one I’m looking forward to is the CK + TLY pair. It sounds like it could be a great show, the promotional posters look good already, and not to mentioned that this potential leading duo is pretty much the prettiest you can get.

    • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

      I do wonder the extent of them changing the script to have him on board. Hopefully, for the better!

  5. 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

    Isn’t Part 1 55 episodes? Chusen should be ending next week.

    That’s what I thought. The splitting of the drama is for financial purposes. Time to cash in the sponsors lol

    • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

      I just checked again, the old article puts 60 but baidu says 55. Lol. I don’t think they have more material to fill 10 episodes. 55 should be correct.

      I dislike the advertisements so much! Give me more work when I encode. XD

  6. 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

    So Chusen has three seasons, wow. I doubt I will even watch Season 2. Right now I am just watching for my BiYao- XiaoFan ship. I was hoping once XF went to the dark side he would be more interesting but I have a feeling I will be really disappointed.
    I wonder if it is true about ZLY being the lead for that movie. There were rumors about another movie going around. Either way Princess Agents should finish soon and she did say her next project was a movie.

      • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

        the new Fearless Vampire Killers movie with Andy Lau, I saw some rumors about that recently.

    • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

      Same here, Maoh. Only skimming for Qing Long, Mao Zi Jun, Bi Yao and Xiao Fan. Lol.

      We know the disappointment feeling well don’t we? Had practice with Hua Qian Gu. X)

      • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

        We like the same ppl in Chusen. Sometimes I just want BiYao to leave XiaoFan and go away with her sect.
        yeah I was disappointed Hua Qian Gu didn’t go full evil, but she had some really good lines in the end so that made up for it. I really like when she is cursing Ba ZiHua. XiaoFan is just hopeless. I was hoping his character would have more charisma when he became evil. However, so far evil XF just looks so ridiculous and over acted that I just laugh. I am still holding on to a bit of hope.

        • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

          Bi Yao is starting to frustrate and annoy me, same as as Hua Qian Gu’s character, so focused on love that she can’t see past it.

          Qiao Gu had so much more crap thrown and happened to her, much more so than Xiao Fan, but her transformation was the most disappointing of all. We still have 18 episodes of Ghost Tear, here’s to hoping!

        • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

          I wanted Qian Gu to tear off people’s heads and stuff. LOL!! Sorry, I’m too evil when it comes to exacting revenge. Tang Bao’s death froze my heart! 8D

        • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

          @Angela: BY is a catalyst to XF’s transformation.

          HQG wasn’t lovesick though. She was a pawn in the struggle and couldn’t escape her fate.

        • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

          the problem is that I doubt LYF can pull it off, so far XF has been very disappointing. My only hope for him was that once he goes evil, I will see some emotion from him. However, the moments he has gone dark so far have been very bad. BY seems like a big romantic. But she will go into coma before I start screaming at her to forget about her love like I did with Qian Gu. That being said I liked Qian Gu a lot, even if I was frustrated with her not killing everyone and torturing them.
          @Kappy I was ready for her to destroy everyone when Tang Bao died. She was just too good in her core, even half crazy she couldn’t bring herself to be fully evil.

        • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

          @Hannah, lol. I know she’s the catalyst, every promo posted here pointed to that. Doesn’t mean I can’t find her frustrating to watch with her constant love, love, love talk. Lol.

          Hua Qian Gu did everything for love in my eyes. Love love love shifu.

        • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

          @Angela: lol, that’s the purpose of BY – her love for XF consumes her

        • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

          @Hannah, Hence I find her frustrating and annoying, nothing wrong with that. Lol. I just wish her end to happen sooner because they’ve been dragging it way toooooooo long.

    Lee Min Ho’s City Hunter was not even close to the manga City Hunter.

    • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

      As a standalone drama though, I think it was really good, especially all the daddies issues. XD

  8. 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

    Great batch of news, Kap! Thanks a lot! I hope your house will be spared any possible flood. Stay safe!

    OK, Zhang Tian Ai gives more reason to watch that demon cat movie, and I hope it will be screened in my country. (Speaking of which, I still can’t find I Belonged to You and Soulmates anywhere *sigh*)

    Isn’t that Zhang Xin Yi in We Are In Love drama?

    The Warrior Gate trailer looks cool — but is it dubbed in English? I’m curious now if it’s only for promoting (like what they did for The Journey of Flower, lol) or for the entire movie.

    I also like Kevin Cheng’s movie trailer. It seems to depart from his usual theme, as here he’s a single father. The movie looks touching too.

    Lesigh, Chusen. Good thing I didn’t read the book, since I read many fans/readers are furious about the drastic changes in the drama. I quite like it as it is, and am glad that Viki has licensed it. I’ve been relying on recaps to follow the story (though I admit to skimming a lot).

    • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

      That is Yuan Hong’s wife!! LOL. They are not even paired up. Funny.

      Can’t believe 8th reunites with his dead wife who didn’t love him. XD

    • 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

      My roof leaked instead! LOL! This house is old. These squirrels be digging holes!

      Wifey in hubby’s drama. I see her but never made the connection. Omgosh!

      I’m not sure about Warrior Gates. They switched back and forth. O_O

  9. 36 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (43)

    So many movies! Looking forward to seeing Hu Ge play the villain. Hehe.

    Glad to see Zhang Xue Ying’s name tied to a drama. I was hoping she would get more exposure.

    Yang Yang and Tian Ai’s commercial made me laugh out loud. So cheesy! I hope they give me a different vibe in Martial Universe. Hopefully the stylists will also have a way to make Tian Ai look younger against YY lol.

What do you think?
