This is a mini batch of news since I feel like cramming everything in one post seems to overwhelm a lot of people and sometimes, certain dramas get glossed over. Lol.

=======> ♦ High school drama, When We Were Young (青春最好时), with Ceng Shun Xi and Zhang Xue Ying drops first stills. This actor has some prominent eyes. The storyline revolves around twins (female lead) being separated and meeting later in school.

=======> ♦ I didn’t watch part 1 so surprised to see Part 2 with a new cast in Kris Wu (as Monk Shifu), Lin Geng Xin (as Monkey King), Yao Chen, and Wang Duo for Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons 2 (西遊·降魔篇). It’s directed by Tsui Hark and written and produced by Stephen Chow. Release date: January 28, 2017. Trailer and a press conference below. I really don’t know how to make of the trailer. Lol.

=======> ♦ Joe Xu and Ju Jing Yi in webdrama, Detective Samoyeds (热血长安) aka Righteous Ardor of Chang An. This looks pretty good! Joe is beautiful. I like his hair. =D

=======> ♦ Taiwanese Actors, Jasper Liu and Vivian Sung, will star in an upcoming youth film about the 80s called Don’t Wanna Say Goodbye. Aww, so cute!

=======> ♦ Jane Zhang has some beautiful bridesmaids on her wedding day.

=======> ♦ New trailers and teasers for Wei Da Xun‘s Shuttle Love Millennium with Puff Guo and Janice Man.

=======> ♦ Till Death Tear Us Apart has been pushed back to March 2017. Noooooo! But they released the full opening themesong today. I love the chorus so much!! It sounds so old-schooled!! I eat it up.

=======> ♦ William Chan and Liu Shi Shi’s Love Lost in Times reveals posters for the rest of their core characters. Joe Xu, Han Dong, Han Xue, and Huang Meng Ying.

Is Han Dong sharing a wig with Shi Shi?

Her hair looks so heavy….

=======> ♦ I’m so happy! Martial Universe confirmed Ashton Chen Xiao Long, Liu Yan, and Suo Xiao Kun. WHOOPIE!

=======> ♦ Jiang Jin Fu‘s Royal Highness wrapped up filming on 11/10/16 after four months.

=======> ♦ Li Yi Tong and Lu Yi are paired up for drama adaptation of Just To See You (只为那一刻与你相见) written by Xian Cheng. Booting ceremony was held on the 9th. Did not read this novel. Feel free to spoil me. Lol.

=======> ♦ Another Ding Mo’s novel to be adapted. Don’t Turn From Summer (莫负寒夏). Rumored leads are Wang Kai and Li Qin. Hmmm. What’s the possibility of Nick accepting the role, ladies?

=======> ♦ Shawn Dou and Li Qin might not have a happy ending in Princess Agents but they are rumored up next in a modern drama based on the novel Variety Flowers At Seaside (剧海上繁花) written by Fei Wo Si Cun. The cast also includes Leon Zhang Yun Long. I was excited for Shawn and Li Qin before reading this one spoiler…. involving an R scene between the leads. These writers are really pushing the boundary for tragedies. Filming begins on 11/15. BAHHHHHHHHH.

=======> ♦ Sigh. Yang Mi and Hawick Lau. Their marriage has never been smooth. The latest scandal says Hawick and Angel Wang Ou (starring in The Legend of Jade Sword), are having an affair. Yang Mi was interviewed when she attended Cosmo Event and said no matter what she trusts in Hawick. Hawick also posted on weibo explaining that he has learnt a lesson of not practicing the scripts late at night in a room. I feel bad for them but dude Hawick, you’re not a ROOKIE! C’mon now!

=======> ♦ Zhao Li Ying’s News-corner: I know some are anxious to find out more about Li Ying’s movie, Ride the Winds Break the Waves, with Deng Chao and Eddie Peng. Fan accounts say that they saw Li Ying on set in older clothing, revealing that she and Eddie will play parents to older actor Deng Chao. We are not privvy to more details but something does happen to the father, throwing the lives of everyone in the family into a turmoil. Fans are going wild with a lot of theories, and I like this one: Deng Chao time-traveling to the past to meet his parents in their younger days. Lol.

Here’s a BTS in Princess Agents between Chu Qiao and Prince Li. Yes, she beats up the sly fox often. XD

    Wow..Jane Liang’s wedding has Liu Yi Fei as one of the bridemaids.. she looks like a fairy and sort of outshines the bride.
    Plus Tang Yan as a guest. Both of them are so gorgeous…
    wish Jane Zhang a lifetime of happiness ..

    • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

      Lol. It’s quite dangerous to have a beauty like Yi Fei there. XD

  2. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    That poster of “General and I” though… ‘Wow!’ Such a beautiful pair!

  3. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    The poster for General and I is so pretty *_*

    Hawick Lau and Wang Ou should have known better…hurtful rumours like this could have easily been avoided.

  4. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    Man…Wallace and ABB look good together. Poster is nice! I can’t wait!

    So many novels to dramas adaptations. That’s the trend!

    Congrats to Jane!

    Happy for Xiao Long! Did Gina Jin ever confirm? Or did I just miss it?

    莫负寒夏 was such a disappointing book, easily my least favorite modern non-mystery Ding Mo book. It had a lot of potential at first but it seemed obvious that the author had penned it just for the sake of pacifying fan requests for a story on Lin MoChen. He was first introduced in another one of her books and she had made him so mysterious there that everyone start asking about his story. Sadly his story never lived up to the hype.

    • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

      Officially, Gina never confirmed. I’m still waiting!!

      Ah~, Disappointing novel?! A drama adaptation is a chance to change that or go down the spiral road. XD

      • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

        Lol. They might as well rewrite the whole story!

  6. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    The whole Hawick and Wang Ou scandal felt like a witch-hunt to me. The ‘evidences’ didn’t even look believable to me, but yeah both of them should have known better. I don’t know if most of the actors and actresses discuss their scripts in their own rooms or what, but as a married man, he shouldn’t have just entered a single woman’s room in the night, no matter what reason it was. The way things are going, even if the whole scandal isn’t true, it will definitely cause some kind of harm to Yang Mi and her daughter if people kept on going on about this cheating thing.

    They said the stylist were some famous stylists for Love Lost in Times… but what am I seeing lol! The hair is a no go!

    • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

      Yes, they even asked the grandparents, going too far. I wonder what’s going on in the background that these two keep getting smeared endlessly. Who did they offend and could I apologize in their stead? Please!

      When it comes to hair, I judge them individually! LOL!

      • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

        I sincerely feel sorry for this couple. But I can more curious where are the negative coming from? From the Hong Kong media or the China media? But work in China but their main base is in Hong Kong.
        They both probably don’t spend time/ money bribing the media enough….Both are not interested in playing this games.

  7. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    Martial Universe is a drama right??? He looks so mature in the poster but there’s still an unmistakable familiarity in his features to his Young Wong Fei Hong self. I do hope he has an interesting story line as well and not just put in to be a one dimensional martial artist. Adding this to my watch list!!

    • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

      It is a drama so rejoice! *throws confetti*

      YAYAYAYAYA!! He’s my Fei Hong. The perfect Fei Hong. ❤ ❤ ❤

    Notice 2 things:
    1. Wang Kai possibly in another Ding Mo adaptation? What is he – the template for all the heroes in Ding Mo’s books??

    2. Li Qin in a FWSC drama with R scene….but but her character in Princess Agents is also gonna get R-ed, at least not by any of the male leads.But still…. and dang FWSC really likes violence in the relationships of his CPs.

    • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

      In all honesty, I do not like FWSC stories. Lol.

      That’s just my personal opinion.

      • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

        I agree with you, Kappy. Her stories feel semi-creepy, dysfunctional. Has anyone get her checked out by a psychologist? I just mean to say that surely her constant obsessions with her unusual story lines must mean something. I just want some psych experts to tell me her possible motivations, reasons, and why there are so many readers who like these story lines. I just want to try to understand a bit.

        Like maybe her childhood was too happy, so she craves for the less happy stuff? Or is it just a financial strategy? She sees an open market in the novel writing world, so she’s writing these darker stories just to make lots of money?

        I just feel uncomfortable with her stories and cannot understand their mass appeal.

        • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

          Agree! I just don’t get why most of her leading male characters are so manipulative and abusive. They’re so intent on seeking revenge on the girl they supposedly love if she doesn’t love him back. Or if he’s particularly interested in a girl, he’ll try everything and anything to get her in his possession. Maybe some women think this is a sign of how deep the man’s love is. To me, it’s just an unhealthy obsession of an overgrown boy who was never told no. What’s worse is that the female lead eventually succumbs. It’s sad.

        • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

          YES LADIES!

          Took the words out of me!

  9. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    愉此一生. When the news of the delay came out a couple days ago, first time, anywhere, I used “WTF” in my comment. Now it’s almost certain that regardless of what the original vision is or how “cleaned up” it is, this drama’s central theme will be destroyed.

  10. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    What in the world was Hawick Lau thinking? As a married man with a daughter, he should’ve known better, along with her co-stars and other staff who were with them. No matter if this scandal is true or false, it caused nothing but harm to Yang Mi and her family.

    • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

      im with you all. what was hawick lau thinking? entering a room at night with an actress??? he knows the paps are always chasing him for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING.

      i feel bad for yang mi and his parents, being dragged into the whole mess.

      he’s not new into the entertainment either, his parents are actors! he’s so tactless it’s upsetting me. lol.

  11. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    That’s it! Han Dong’s character is the great wizard of the world unmatched in astronomical powers until he met Liu Shi Shi whose wig is higher than his.
    ヾ(⌐■_■)ノ♪ 乁( ˙ ω˙乁)
    My excitement for Martial Universe has proliferated!!!!

  12. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    The Journey to the West “trailer” is not the actual trailer… that’s the point. It’s a spoof. And it’s hilarious! This movie is gonna smash in the box office.

    • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

      lol. not everyone has to find it hilarious. i geddit but it just wasn’t really funny. i miss stephen as an actor, not so much behind the scene.

      • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

        Oh I wasn’t trying to say everyone has to find it hilarious. I was just saying it wasn’t a serious trailer by any means because it wasn’t really specified in the description above.

        He’s a great actor and he was funny in this trailer actually… most acting he’s done in forever lol.

  13. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    I was shocked to hear of Hawick’s cheating. He was always gushing about his wife and daughter on TV.

    The Chinese netizens have pretty much believed he did the deed, some of them are saying: if you can’t stay committed, don’t get married and you can screw around all you want.


  14. 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

    Thanks for the updates Kappy. You made my week. I am very much looking forward to new dramas especially Princess Agent with ZLY. The General and I poster looks great and I hope the drama is not going to be a disappointment. I am not sure about the others although I do like LSS so pretty much looking forward to seeing her again. I finished Mystic Nine and enjoyed it and was shipping hard ZLY and WC (such cute couple) although the ending left me in suspense and I was like…..what?? Do you know when is the New Eternal Wave coming out (I may have missed the air date in an earlier post maybe) ?

    • 32 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (45)

      You’re welcome, Wuxialovers!

      New Eternal Wave is said to come out in December 2016. But so far, there’s no exact date. 🙁
