=======> ♦ Joe Xu Hai Qiao talks about Li Ying during his interview. He says she’s like tomboy, like a model soldier on filming locations. There was one time while filming Hua Qian Gu that she filmed 3 projects at the same time. He felt bad that she worked so hard so he found pretty pictures, one of the beautiful Japan’s cherry blossom and told her to travel there. She replied she will think about it because between filming one project to another, she only had two-days break. Everyone is shocked and the interviewee asks if he had wondered why she works so hard? Joe replies in his own view that actors spend the majority of their time on set, the people on set become their friends during that period, so when they have a day off, they wouldn’t know what to do because this profession also limits their chances of making friends. Because of this, sometimes they feel safer on the set and it’s the same case with Li Ying. The interviewee then wraps up and asks how come he hasn’t fallen for her yet. Lol. Joe: “I…am always encouraging her. *laughs* Interviewee, “Does that mean you’re chasing her?!” He’s thinking and she adds, “The good thing about interviewing a person in the morning is because one can easily get the truth!” After straightening himself, Joe says, “I think… I hope she can find someone who is extremely mature, a person who is not extremely busy to take care of her.” Awwwwwww XD The Hua Qian Gu’s family. [Watch clip here]
=======> ♦ The ladies from Ode To Joy attended Elle Style Show 2016 together. Holding hands. Aww!
=======> ♦ I wrote about this before, but here it is again for those who missed it. Took place at Marie Claire’s event. Yang Mi says she might just be the happiest person and hopes that TY could have 2 kids in 3 years. Lol. Then they ask a typical question, “If you and Luo Jin fell into the water, who would Tang Yan save?”
Yang Mi has the best response. “I think I’d just save him too because I’m a Real Man (her variety show).”
In another interview, she warned Luo Jin to be careful not to hurt TY or else she would beat him up.
=======> ♦ Stay With Me‘s costars, Nick Wang Kai is dating Joe Chen Qiao En?
Nick clarifies the rumors at today’s press conference for Railroad Tigers (12/22). They are only good friends. She brought along her parents and some staff to visit somewhere in Hubei province (?). Since his parents know the area very well, they acted as hosts for the trip. [Uploaded clip here.]
=======> ♦ Singer Jolin Tsai and model Vivian Dawson broke up (her manager confirmed the news). Eddie Peng topped the search engine. LOL. The Chinese Paladin effect? KEKE. It was said that Jolin dated Eddie back in 2006-2008 but his parents didn’t like her sexy style. Interesting.
