    I think I’m actually pretty excited for all of these news. And Zhang Bin Bin in Liu Huo Ru Ge is sizzling!!! Actually, pretty much everyone in that show looks really good so far. Especially also the girl who played Demon princess in 3L3W; she’s looking badass and gorgeous. Zhang Tian Ai’s looking pretty awesome herself in Naga Pearls. Bai Yu’s looking hot too… admittedly while he’s always been handsome, he wasn’t really my thing earlier in the year and last year with the two O2O’s and with Memory Lost…but add the facial hair, man is he my man. LOL. Also super excited for the potential air date for Little Valentine. Been waiting for that since…well for a really long time. Also for Season 2 of Dectective Samoyeds. I actually really liked season 1.

    Zhang Bin Bin always sizzle.. not sure its his gaze or facial features.
    Oh yay my eyes lit up when i come cross Janice Wu’s name- always needed more of her on screen. I like Tao’s personality on variety shows- but i dont know about his acting though..

    NO!!! Leave Nodame Cantabile alone!
    Seriously though, I doubt anything can ever live up to the original. Korea’s adaptation failed as well.

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

      That’s me screaming too!!!!!! Jap Nodame Cantabile anime and drama was so good, the Korean version was a mess and seriously I expect the Chinese version to be as well… It’s hard for any country to pull off Japanese’s way of making their kind of comedy anime like drama. It’s a Japanese thing.
      Even the other versions of Hana Yori Dango couldn’t overtake the Jap version, for me.

    The funny thing is that apparently Moka Fang’s father told Aaron Kwok that he listened to his songs growing up.

    Blazing Ruge looks alright, but the plot is a definite no go for me. I think I’ve mentioned my extreme dislike for this author.

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

      LOL that song listening thing. I think Moka’s father looks to be around his mid 40s.

      Flame Daughter/ Blazing Ruge is not my thing either. I’ll probably check it out for the cast and then use the flash forward button by a lot lol. So far works from that author don’t click for me at all, especially Summer of Bubbles.

      • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

        The author is coocoo for coco puff in torturing! Not a fan of her style either.

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

      LOL. I read that and immediately thought, Who’s older? XD So bad!! Hhahah.

    Whoever the make-up artist is for The Flame’s Daughter they are a bit too happy with the eyebrow pencil! Who is the actress in black and white in The Flame’s Daughter pictures. She’s gorgeous and looks so cool in the pictures! I do wish Yang Mi’s company would promote some of the other ladies in her company more besides Yang Mi and Dilraba. Zhang Bin Bin looks sizzling even with curly hair.

    Crystal Zhang looks gorgeous as always in the Naga Pearls movie but both the CGI and Darren Wang’s hair look horrible.

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

      Dai Si. She was also in 3l3W. Lol. Another package deal migrating from one filming site to another. LOL.

      • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

        Thanks Kappy! I just googled and she was the demon princess in the 3L3W. She was the only female character I liked! Glad to see her here.

        Yep with the package deal! YM definitely keeps her people employed at the very least LOL!

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

      Most of the supporting actresses in TMOPB belong to YM’ agency. I think they are doing a wonderful job promoting their artist even all the package deal are a bit ridiculous.
      However only Yang Mi and recently Dilraba have enough power and popularity to carry a drama as lead. I even heard rumor that Dilraba was originally chosen to be Bai Qian but all the investor didn’t think she can carry the ratings and wanted Yang Mi so they did their best to promote Dilraba so she can handle more dramas on her own now…

      • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

        I definitely agree she is doing a great job promoting her artists but she isn’t doing any favours for the actresses by giving all the leads and popular characters to herself or Diireba) (I personally loathed Feng Jiu but that character is popular and had a big fanbase from novel readers) and leaving the other actresses with nothing but second lead harridans and best friends where they can easily end up typecast. Dilireba is big enough now to strike out on her own for roles outside the company and to give some of the other talented actresses in the company a chance.

        • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

          It’s unrealistic to expect them to give the lead role to the more unknown actresses. They have to sell the drama and earn money too. Having Yang Mi or even Dilraba on the cast allows them to price the drama higher. Before Dilraba struck gold with her character in Diamond Lovers, she was also just part of the package deal. I expect to see them stick with this mode considering that they already have a successful case. Not that I like that they are using the same cast over and over again.

        • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

          Nothing was given easily. YM is doing her best in term of she is giving them what she could and it’s how she started to- playing supporting roles and roles that people loves….
          She knows the formula and is doing exactly so with Dilra and her other actress. It’s unrealistic to expect her giving them what she doesn’t have or expect her giving them big roles when they don’t have the popularity and power. Dilra takes a few years and these other actresses might need longer and a bit more luck. More of her actors are getting offers after TMOPB with bigger roles. That’s a very good start. How many other actress and actors could do that for their boys and girls?

    So it was Zhu Yi Long’s birthday on the 16th and of course they threw a birthday party for him. The hosts asked about the new drama with Johnny Bai Yu and poor Yi Long was embarrassed about the (bro)romance in it. =P

    Liking Qiao Zhen Yu’s version of the Song of Phoenix theme. I can put that on loop along with Ma Ke’s version, haha.

    I had wondered about Little Valentine’s release date. Good to know it’s soon!

    Lol good luck with trying to adapt Nodame. The Japanese cast brought the manga characters to life and it’s super hard to surpass their success.

  7. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

    After reading the novel, I think Zhu Yi Long fits well for his character in Guardian. Bai Yu feels more iffy. I wonder whether bromance alone is sufficient to explain Zhu Yi Long’s guardian of human and ghost realms, neither of which his character truly cares for, for more than 5000 years.

  8. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

    So much news!!

    Wow, didn’t even know Wong Kar Wai was coming out with a new movie. Kris seems to be the top pick by directors.. he’s been extremely lucky on that front.

    I watched the first few episodes of Surgeons but it failed to hold my interest. I hope the new dramas coming out are good.

  9. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

    Is it my eyes, or is Sun Yi’s boyfriend wearing a wedding band in his ring finger?

    So much news! I join the chorus praising Bai Yu’s facial hair — he looks smoldering hot. Pairing his new hot look with Zhu Yi Long’s pink cheeks.. whew! Give us some teaser — better yet, trailer — soon, please!

    Leave Nodame alone. There can only be one !

  11. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

    I might be the only one but I’m having trouble getting the drop down feature to work. It’s been happening a lot and I try to refresh until it works but lately I’ve got no luck 🙁

  12. 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

    Wow I never knew that the director for the old Journey to the West was a woman. We hear so much about the lack of female directors in the U.S. that I forgot about the fact that many of the best shows in China are helmed by female directors. She gave us one of the most Chinese iconic dramas–none of the numerous remakes could even come close. Death is always sad, but Director Yang Jie left behind a pretty magnificent legacy.

    On a lighter note, the layout for the website is looking great!

    • 26 thoughts on “Bulletin Board: Cdramaland & Entertainment News (54)

      Yep! I didn’t know a female director was involved either. It’s a collaborative effort to produce the iconic Journey to the West. 🙂

What do you think?
