=======> ♦ Press conference for Fan Bing Bing‘s massive historical drama, Win The World (赢天下), based on the story of a Qing Dynasty widow who was named the most successful and richest entrepreneur of the time, Widow Qing. Google tells me her ancestors became rich for digging “elixir.” She was even once rewarded by Emperor Qin Shi Huang. Anyone have more details on this lady? Anything that involves Fan Bing Bing will have to be rich. XD

Beautiful ladies and gentlemen. Main cast includes Gao Yun Xiang, Yan Kuan, Ma Su, Liu Xiao Hu, and Dai Ding.

=======> ♦ Wallace Chung‘s song for General and I has been subbed by Tranzgeek! Thanks a lot dear! 🙂

=======> ♦ First revealed Themesong to The Legend of the Condor Heroes is sang by Shang Wen Jie, champion of the third season of Super Girl. Listen to it below.

=======> ♦ So You’re Still Here will get a drama adaptation. The movie one has Liu Yi Fei and Kris Wu. Guli Nazha is rumored as the female lead.

=======> ♦ The Ming Brothers from The DisguisersHu Ge, Wang Kai, and Jin Dong, will sing a song together at CCTV Spring Festival. Something to look forward to for new year!

=======> ♦ Hawick Lau is attached to a new drama called Beauty’s Game (三个女人一台戏) to begin filming in 3/2017. His rumored leading ladies are Xu Lu, Jiang Yi Yan, and Joyce Jian Ren Zi.

=======> ♦ Ratings for Drama: General and I still reigns (highest is 1.341 on the 9th), followed very closely by Guardian of Beauty (steadily increasing) with Li Xiao Lu and Zhang Yi. A lot of controversies about this project, from using doubles, to high fees, to Angelababy and Wallace Chung only filming together for just 10 days, leaving their scenes to have heavy copy-and-paste green screen stamp. Netizens are unhappy about the poor editing and unprofessional attitude but the production crew says they will proceed according to the law if these untrue rumors persist. Angelababy was 2-month pregnant while filming General and I, hence she filmed less action scenes. Besides filming for other works, both leads were always present to do their scenes. Also, their fees are of normal market price, not skyrocketing like the rumors suggested.

=======> ♦ Despite already wrapping up, Princess Wei Young receives plagiarism complaints from 11 authors. The author replies simply, “The details were created by me. Any similarities to other works are all coincidences.”

=======> ♦ HK media reports that Hu Ge has been declining drama scripts left and right because he wants to study directing in America and want to direct his first drama upon completion of study. Who knows. Why is HK media reporting about Mainland stars? Lol.

=======> ♦ Tina Tang Yi Xin is reported the only female character in the testosterone-fueled movie, Eight Hundred Heroes (战争启示录之八百壮士). Directed by Guan Yu, other big names include Li Yi Feng, Ethan Ruan and Jackson Yi.

=======> ♦ Li Yi Feng becomes the representative for China Children and Teenager’s Fund Foundation under Spring Bud Project. Yi Feng has donated to this foundation on numerous occasions, citing back to 2008. Charity work is always appreciated!

=======> ♦ A new wuxia will begin filming: New Dragon Gate Inn (新龙门客栈) with Ma Ke and Shen Meng Chen. Filming to begin on 1/8/17.

=======> ♦ The New Legend of Madame White Snake has a rumored casting in Yang Zi (White Snake), Mao Xiao Tong (Green Snake), and Allen Ren Jia Lun (Xu Xian).

=======> ♦ Ruby Lin and Wallace Huo‘s baby girl arrives safely on January 6th. Already potential son-in-laws are lining up with Michelle Chen and Chen Xiao‘s baby boy wanting to pay a visit to the little princess. LOL. You pretty people.

For the airing dates of Cdramas in 2017, please visit my master post.

Gossips and Scandals

=======> ♦ After Tong Li Ya left the hotel room, her husband, Chen Si Cheng, was caught with two ladies entering his hotel room. They did not leave and he only left the day after…. From Li Ya’s fans, this isn’t his first offense. O_O

Zhao Li Ying News Corner

=======> ♦ Li Ying’s CFs.

=======> ♦ Li Ying enjoying free time and bicycling with fellow cast members, on her right is with Feng Shao Feng.

 photo 49batch-77.jpg

=======> ♦ Do you remember this actor by Li Ying’s side? He was Sha Jie Jie’s right hand man in Hua Qian Gu. Actor Ruan Sheng Wen (real name: Ruan Wei Jing) And who would have thought to become very close to Li Ying, close enough for her to recommend him the role in Princess Agents, as well as gave him his new nickname (Ruan Sheng Wen). He says that working side-by-side with her made him understand that fame doesn’t come accidentally (meaning: hard work is put in.) “She was born to become a top actress.”

    Thank you for sharing!

    I’m hooked on General and I. I don’t believe the rumors. I’ve watched the BTS clips, and Wallace and ABB got along well.

    Looking forward to ZLY’s next project. She’s making me wait lol

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

      Li Ying keeps saying she wants to rest this year and have time for herself to travel. I’m okay with her plan to rest and relax a little. Little bee’s been working too hard! 🙂

      • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)


        Did ABB know she was pregnant prior to filming? She did a couple of action scenes in the drama thus far. Scary!

  2. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

    2017 looks more awesome in drama and movie land! There is lots on that lisy that I will be waiting for. Thank you again for putting up the list for us. You’re awesome! I am very sad for tong li ya, wth i use to like chen sicheng but after this i am losing respect for him, sicko invited his sidewomens to his house gross! Poor wife and kid. I hope she doesnt just give him a slap on the risk like anglica lee did for her husband. Omg and hawick use yo really like him too, but loose respect for cheaters.

    Hoping it’s not Gulinazha for You’re Still Here. I felt she is still rather stiff in her acting.
    Has Yan Kuan ever play a vampire? He would make a great one 😀
    Zhou Dong Yu and Zhang Yi Shan look so cute
    I like how Ruby’s baby is also born in January like her <3 And awww to Michelle's and Chen Xiao's baby boy
    Haven't watched Alan Yu Meng Long in a while, but he's everywhere lol.
    Wan Qian <3
    Looking forward to the Ming brothers ^.^ So much pretty
    Princess Wei Young storyline is not really creative or out of the ordinary. Tons of ancient novels have plots with time traveling or reverting back to a younger age, and seeking revenge.
    Shame on Chen Si Cheng. Shame. Poor Tong Li Ya I'll avoid Great Expectations then.
    Wallace Chung's song sounds nice but I haven't made any progress in watching General and I lol.
    You know what Liu Shi Shi's hair reminds me of in the first poster? A stove. The part of the stove with the curvy hooks where the fire would be. Maybe they were trying to relate to her magical brightness? A+ for creativity lol.

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

      LOL. A Stove?! You ladies are coming up with creative ways to describe their hairstyles. XD

    Only half looking forward to Glory of Tang. I LOVE Jing Tian, and she looks gorgeous in this one. Her character also seems to have more quiet strength and maturity than her usual “fiery smart girl” type, which will be nice. BUT I’m still not feeling Allen yet, and that wouldn’t be as big of an issue for me if they didn’t have Mao Zi Jun and Qin Jun Jie in the same production playing supporting roles. I mean, I’m all for newbies getting a chance, but Mao Zi Jun has been playing “significant supporting characters” for quite a while and he’s pretty decent, so I really wanna see him get his own lead roles…

    Super excited for Ode to Joy 2!!!

    Also looking forward to Mao Xiao Tong’s lead drama, but everything else for me is well… we’ll see.

    Honestly I don’t care about the cheating that much. I mean, I thinking cheaters are just morally horrible ppl and I wouldn’t condone it by any means, but… The thing with scandals and such, is that unless it comes from the ppl involved themselves, I tend to take any like news with a grain of salt. Any photographic (well, I mean barring being caught red-handed) evidence can be easily misconstrued by paps, info left out to skew news, etc. Even if it was real, yeah it’ll affect how I see the actor/actress, but tbh it also happens so commonly in real life that I feel like I really shouldn’t judge MORE just cuz they’re celebs. At the same time, I tend to actually care less, because clearly these scandals are public news, and if it really happened, I’d hope one of the involved parties (the victim, I mean, even tho I don’t like using that word) would take action even if they don’t publicly issue any statement. Whether it’s break up, divorce, separation, etc. But if the couples seem fine with it, it either didn’t happen and they had enough trust, or one of them is willing to put up with it. While putting up with cheating can come off as really disappointing to me, I also know these situations are emotionally wrought and not always black/white, so who am I to care if they don’t care themselves.

    Just my two cents. So honestly, if Great Expectations turns out well, I’d still watch. And I really haven’t believed either the Hawick scandal or CSC’s, and even if they’re true, well…their wives seem to be handling it.

  6. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

    I stopped watching the General and I for a while now, Angelababy acting is just too stiff for my taste. I am actually looking forward to some of the republican and ancient dramas coming out this year (last year dramas wasn’t so great in my opinion). I’m not really into modern dramas so no opinion on that. Just one last comment on Liu Shishi hairstyle, like I mentioned in the chat box, she looks like she is wearing an octopus on her head. These dramas should really have an independent committee for bad ideas intervention because some of them are really bad.

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

      Hahahaha thats a good idea! Like director, designer and producer all gave it a go for that awful hair. Her other one looks like a spider web lol. Its going to be distracting when watching. Wishing lss the best of luck with her future, hopes she picks great projects ahead. As for general and i, ibam okay with angelababy shes starting to show more personality and not be so cold to wards cbj. Lol wallace makes every relationship looks good hehe.

  7. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

    So, my guess is right. While watching G&I, I always thought it seemed that they heavily edited both WC and AB’s scenes whenever they were in the scenes (not particularly together). *sigh, I was eagerly waiting for this drama and that’s all I’ve got, edited version of the green studio!

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

      yup, that’s actually what made me stop watching. i can live with silly stories (tbh, unlike most people here, I’m not really into the original book story) but the crappy editing and bad FX – nooope.

  8. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

    LSS’s hairstyle… I don’t understand how is it that nobody in the production group is saying something about that hair when so many people are saying that it looks ugly lol.
    I love the vibe that’s going on between Zhang YiShan and ZDY! The stills look pretty and I can feel their chemistry just by looking at those photos!

    Another cheating scandal lol… Don’t understand why ppl just can’t stay loyal towards their another half. Is it that difficult??? If you like having different woman around you then don’t get married and harm your wife and let her suffer. Poor LiYa and her son!

  9. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

    Hello Kappy, thanks for the update. I did not recognized LSS in the first photo. Did they photoshopped her or something? Or maybe it’s the hair. Feels like the person in charge really want to be creative ………and failed !!!! Shu Chang’s hair in Chusen is quite awful too and she is so young in reality. The hairstyle made her look a lot older than her real age. I know she was supposed to be 2000 years old in the drama but still.

    As always any news on ZLY is welcomed. I liked that she has friends and enjoy herself. I am really impatient to watch her movies and dramas.

    As for the scandals, well the media really like ot play on it especially since Tong Liya and Yang Mi and their respective others are famous. Eventhough it is true, this is their family business. Actors and actresses are human too. Just my thoughts of course.

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

      I think they used a little too much airbrushing here for the flawless skin effect. Lol. She does have great skin in real life (from the close-up shots I’ve seen.)

  10. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

    Liying is friend with everyone! LOL

    Been a long time since the news for White Snake Legend remake. Yang Zi as White Snake??? lt’s not that l’m against it, but that means the speculations for the posters are so off. LOL why they haven’t revealed the actors yet?

  11. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

    Am crazily chasing after General and I. Wallace’s character is so hot!

    I read the book General and I and personally feel that the 2 leads don’t really spend that much time together until the end…most of the time they are on opposing camps trying to outmanoeuvred one another & halfway through the novel, 1 disappeared & another faked death…but am really happy that there’s more kissing in the drama than the book! Both seem quite professional in getting their scenes right especially the kiss scene.

    I do agree that the editing isn’t that good. I used to think that the actors were acting with that wonderful scenery until I watch a bts (for another drama) & realised the actors were surrounded by green screens…

  12. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

    Ah any news about the beloved Li Ying is always a treat to read. She seems like she would be so much fun to hang out with.

    Thanks for the news Kappy.

  13. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

    China’s filming and drama budgets are getting so huge in comparison to 5yrs ago. The cost to produce a great number of drama shown here are not for the faint hearted. The home entertainment industry is definitely out doing the Korean. I remember the cycle as I was growing up. It started of with Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, China now. Thai lakorns are getting popular steadily. I just started watching them three months ago. And I am hooked. But likely I will creep back to C_dramas soon.
    Thanks Kappy for taking time to put together this “dossier”. Again if there is anything I can support your site with. I have happy to do so.

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

      Just read gossip in Tong Li Ya, I feel so angry for her!!! She does not deserve a man like that in her life.

      I replied to your email Hohliu! I welcome all kinds of uploads from any country! =)

    Hi Kapoy, thanks for my daily dose of ZLY news! Cant wait for #PrincessAgent

  15. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

    Havent quitted watching General&I but ABB’s acting is just meh. And Wallace couldnt help either.

    Btw, Kappy, you havent talked about TW dramas for a while. I am currently watch Behind Your Smile and The King Of Romance. Typical TW dramas but not bad.

    While for some other Cdrama, still waiting for engsub. Do you know when will OTJ2 air?? Im a big fan.

    Ps : i want to recommend Kr-drama called Goblin. Have you watched it? It’s good. Really.

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

      Hey Yui! It’s because I’m all backed up with Cdramas alone! Lol. So many out! And I have work, and updating news takes up a lot of time.

      You gotta help me out here, what’s OTJ2? I plan to watch some twdramas in the near future (lol). XD

      Goblin! Yes! I am. One of the few I’m following, but mainly for Wookie and Inna. Beautiful. 😉

      • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

        Hazarding a guess, I think OTJ2 = Ode to Joy 2

      • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland/Entertainment News (49)

        Yes, thanks Julianne… Ode to joy 2.

        I hope it will air soon. I miss the girls so much. But i want the boys more hahaha…
