Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

Did I hear some hearts break? Drama adaptation of A Chinese Odyssey (大话西游) releases some stills of its cast and then news drop a few hours ago that Huang Zi Tao is up to romance Yang Mi in The Interpreter Season 2 in a new story. Nothing against Tao but he seems a baby next to Yang Mi. Looks like the new trend of pairing puppies with queens is in lately. Lol.

Stills:

I have written a more detailed post on the original Chinese Odyssey when the movie remake came out with Han Geng and Tang Yan. Read it here. The long synopsis of the story at wiki here.

The whole cast. Lookie who’s in the corner in blue!! Harry!

    I saw the news and almost cried… glad he’s gonna get more exposure, but I don’t want to see him romancing anyone

      Well I mean he did that in a couple MVs already, should we not be used to it already??

    • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

      My thoughts exactly especially after seeing this comment section being swarmed by his fans.

      • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

        wow ok anti, I was going to ignore you, but you’re relentless. What exactly is your problem with tao? How come you hate him so much to go on a smear campaign.. maybe you should open your eyes to the fact that he has a lot of fans, and your anti-behaviour triggered most people

        Man you got time for this today apparently.

    I am going to skip. I saw him in two of his projects and both times he left a bad impression. Even though his role was minor he still left a bad impression, which is a feat in itself.

    I really liked the original movie with Athena Chu as Zi Xia, she was really pretty…only I was shipping the White Bone Demon at that point.

    • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

      what 2 projects? So far, the only thing he’s appeared in is you’re my sunshine. That’s it. Plus, he only had a day to film for that movie cause of exo commitments and that day, he had the flu. So, I hope you won’t judge him based on that

      • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

        He is in the movie “Edge of Innocence” and he is the main star of the movie.

        So I think she is talking about his performance in there

        • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

          That hasn’t been released yet. It comes out 2017

    • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

      I think maybe there is a confusion with another actor? None of Tao’s acting projects have been released yet, there is only a cameo part from You are my Sunshine back that was released in 2015.

      So far the directors and producers have said they hare very satisfied with is performances, he even got nicknamed One Take Tao for being able to shoot perfect scenes in one take. I can’t wait until his projects gets released.

      I watched A Chinese Odyssey: Pandora box and I thought it was hilarious, and actually I could see Tao in that role because he is very expressive and has good comic timing.

      As for the drama with Yang Mi… They have worked together before, In You are My Sunshine and the I’m Sovereign endorsement. Now they are filming Real Man together, and it’s well known they are good friends, and cute together, maybe this is why he’s being considered for this drama role? It could work.

      This is I’m Sovereign endorsement

        Two “projects” don’t necessarily mean movie projects. I think fans should accept criticism and let his works speak for themselves.

        Directors and producers will always hype up their actors. That doesn’t mean anything.

        • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

          The person said ”even if his role was minor” ? Are variety guest appearances considered roles?The comment above was confusing, it doesn’t make sense.

          How can I accept criticism on something that doesn’t exist? lol! And I was not arguing, I’m only relaying what Steve Laws (guest cinematographer on Edge of Innocence, worked on British series Sherlock, Jung Chi-Chang the director, Jeffrey Lau and Gao Xixi said, they are very satisfied and impressed with him) Which makes me eager to watch Tao’s project.

          You are entitled to your opinion, it’s fine if you don’t like him, to each their own, just like you want fans to accept criticism you should accept that fans are allowed to not agree with it, the reason they are fans is because they like his work! And you should also accept that the director and producers might have a differing opinion than yours and are professional with their comments, It goes both ways.

    • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

      I think you’re mistaken too. Tao has only had one project released and he appeared for all of 10 minutes? And like 2 lines

      Haters gonna hate

      Just wait to be proved wrong. Everyone who has worked with him has said he’s a talent and only needs one take. Even Jackie Chan chose him as the second lead in his movie because he believed in Tao’s acting skills, so until his projects actually come out, don’t hate

    • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

      I agree! I watched him in two variety shows and he was embarrassing. Really childish. His face doesn’t help either.

      • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

        I personally love his mischievous, cute and fun personality, he gained a lot of fans and converted a lot of haters through his varieties, Charming Daddy, Rules of our Own, and his Happy Camp appearance broke the show’s ratings records, even beat the Olympic viewer ship! The editor said he was he was the guest that impressed her the most : https://twitter.com/ztaor/status/779362364730724353

        I get that his offbeat personality might be too much for some people that prefer more conventional celebrities. But to me it’s refreshing, I’m always smiling watching him on screen, I love that he’s full of surprises.

        But to each their own! You don’t have to agree. I’m not arguing, I’m just sharing information on the subject and the reason why I personally like him.

        He’s right now doing another guest appearance on Happy Camp with the cast of Real Man. I’m excited!

        • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

          Yeah he had extremely high ratings for his Happy camp so much so that they extended it 2 episodes and have invited him back. This person is probably used to the crop of”little fresh meat” that stand and do nothing – NEWSFLASH normal people aren’t entertained by that.

        • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

          I respect your opinion but you’re being a tad condescending, no?

          “I get that his offbeat personality might be too much for some people that prefer more conventional celebrities”

          What makes you think I prefer conventional celebrities? I just do not like immature and childish personalities like Huang Zitao. It’s nice that he converted some haters but personally he’s made me dislike him and I’m sure I’m not alone.

          Are his fans always this defensive? It’s not the first time I’ve seen them going overboard defending him and replying to everyone who doesn’t have a positive opinion. You can’t make people like him by doing that. Like I said, let his works speak for themselves. His works have spoken to me and I concluded he has an annoying variety personality. Replying to me with an essay about how great you think he is won’t change that.

      • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

        His personality is why I like him, he brings me so much happiness. Super excited to see more of him on screen! I hope he takes a break though, been so busy

  3. 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

    I am so sorry but from the first three pictures, he looks like he could be casted as Lin Pingzhi from the Swordsman.

  4. 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

    Handsome monk handsome monk ~~ 😛
    I still stand by my favorite monk lol.
    Athena Chu was one of my earliest girl crushes <3 Zi Xia fairy ~
    Not sure I would watch Tao with Yang Mi… I was mainly watching Interpreter for Huang Xuan until things started going crazy.

  5. 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

    Eek!

    Casting aside, The Interpreter doesn’t need a sequel at all. It’s probably one of worst dramas I’ve watched this year.

  6. 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

    Tao! If this means I will see more of you, I am all for it

  7. 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

    I can’t really look at Yin Zheng the same way after watching him in Sparrow. He was so evil in it and now he wants to convince me he’s a kind monk. Lol.

    Will skip both dramas. I honestly got into Interpreter because I read the book and also because of Huang Xuan’s acting. Yang Mi surprised me there with her acting, but the dramahas way too many WTF moments for me to continue.

    • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

      And this casting may be the WTF of it all.

      • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

        I’d just prefer that they kept the original cast if they’re doing a sequel. However, if the story and characters have nothing to do with the first season, then I’m fine with a cast change. Otherwise, please keep Huang Xuan or not film it at all.

    • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

      Polaris, wasn’t Yin Zheng in Love Me If You Dare as Wallace’s bff/assistant? The character is good natured and humorous. If he’s playing an evil in Sparrow, it shows he’s got great range!

      • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

        He does have great range. He also speaks fluent Cantonese too and I’ve watched him in a Canto series with Anita Yuen. He was only a guest star but he was so funny and memorable.

  8. 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

    I don’t mean to be harsh but he’s really ugly. Those pics of him as Monkey King aren’t doing him any favors.

    Oh, Yang Mi. She’s too pretty to be paired with him. Unless the role is that she falls in love with an ugly guy then this is a miscast.

    It’s written by the writer of Mystic Nine? Not really giving me the confidence that the plot is good.

  9. 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

    always found him enchanting, will be on the lookout for the drama. 🙂

  10. 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

    Can’t wait to see it! Tao looks so good, should be fun. He’s supposedly a really good actor, too.

  11. 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

    You know what I’ve found? Criticism Tao by *other fans* (you know who you are) try to spew out nastiness BEFORE his stuff gets released, then have nothing to say after release because his stuff is decidedly better than other “little fresh meats” work. It was the same with his music, lol, the fans of those other ones shut up so fast.

    Anyway I’m looking forward to this, looks like it’ll be funny!!

    • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

      Check out cnewsdevotee, the people there are a lot more receptive to tao and no antis to be found

      • 35 thoughts on “Huang Zi Tao in drama A Chinese Odyssey, The Interpreter 2

        this is a bit unfair no? every blog has fans and anti fans on the ready to defend and attack. some are just more outspoken in different platforms/sites. and honestly, the opinion has been divided fairly so far, with only one or two fans replying nonstop. everyone else is pretty neutral.

        if im honest, exo boys always bring the heat whether it be fans or non fans. kris wu, luhan, etc.
