=======> ♦ Production company H&R Century and Chusen novel writer, Xiao Ding, had a clash on weibo. Xiao Ding said he never sold the rights for the movie or webdrama adaptation. A fan explained that the copyrights is nearing expiration date and the company wanted to extend the time by trying to make quick money with just an internet film but the truth is they haven’t had any concrete plan in place (in terms of script, actors, budget). It’s abusing extension protocol and Xiao Ding is upset with their greedy ways and lack of decency.
For us, this just means…no more Chusen….
=======> ♦ Li Ying has an upcoming event for sports brand Xtep. She posted on weibo that she has a surprise for the marathon on March 21st and tells everyone to look forward to it. She linked the picture below. Other endorsers are Nicholas Tse and Jiro Wang. Yang Zi replied with, “This body… kissy face x3.” Aww! Bi Yao and Xue Qi!
