Zhao Li Ying’s News Updates (5/26/17): Star Talks, Beijing Student Film Award, 72 Floors of Mystery Episode 3

I’m in Li Ying heaven right now. So many news of her! Who knew all she needed was a small haircut to look fresh, chic, and adorable! I love the hair split as well, not the usual blunt, boring middle split.

=======> ♦ Official Music Video for Princess Agents Opening Song, “Hope.” For the first time ever, I can say that I recognize scenes from the novel. Yes! I went to that length for her. XD I was feeling frustrated with the production because it seems like Shawn’s character isn’t heavily focused on, whereas both guys are equally very compelling and important. You can distinguish evil Shawn in the mv because he’s wearing eyeliner! LOL. And it’s so cute to see some fellows from Hua Qian Gu, Sha Jie Jie’s second hand man now is Chu Qiao’s loyal general. Oh, the irony of life! Li Qin looks lethal walking in the battlefield holding a sword heading to Chu Qiao’s body. I’m SO PUMPED!!

=======> ♦ Li Ying was a guest speaker for the show Star Talks on 5/25/17 with the theme My Small Heroic Principles. Subbed video will be posted soon! Quick summary: Li Ying discusses about her 11-year career as an actress, 7 years of just supporting roles. How people told her round faces aren’t cut out to be leading material and how she wanted to prove that statement wrong. When she filmed Princess Agents, there were times when she felt hopeless and alone in a sole fight. After she saw the official trailer, she cried and realized one person cannot change everything, the trailer is the work of the whole crew. Of course she is afraid of failures like everybody else, but as a person, one should push themselves out of their bubble of comfort and fight for a breakthrough. Speaking of the unfriendly scandals and media news, her way of relieving pressure is creating and building her characters. The Legend of Lu Zhen (Female Prime Minister) marked her struggling period. As of now, she’s presenting herself as Chu Qiao, representing her longing and desires and using her enthusiasm to realize her dreams and bringing forth positive energy.

A+ style for this event. So adorable.

=======> ♦ She attended Beijing College Student Film Festival Award Ceremony. She won Actress Most Favored/Loved by students.

Not fond of the hair, the dress looks boring, so the only plus point is the color. Lol.

=======> ♦ Episode 3 of 72 Floors of Mystery has Li Ying (member) and beauty Kathy Chow (guest). Seeing the ex-Tvb actress brings back memory of her classic role as the umbrella ghost. Ah, that themesong just played in my head.

    The MV is PHENOMENAL! It’s SO incredibly intense and LiYing’s looking so freaking fierce! I’m super excited. Like at first I was anticipating this cuz I love the actors and the plot seemed pretty interesting and come on, it’s one of LiYing’s major works like ever. But now, I’m also interested cuz the characters look super amazing and the fighting looks so action-packed and awesome and the plot looks filled with real feels and well executed angst! Li Qin’s looking so desolate and desperate…I already feel for her. LiYing’s fight scenes are so well done and she did most of them herself too. Her eyes are so intense and like her action scenes actually look real and forceful, not just going through the choreo and strking the right poses at the right times. It’s convincingly get-down-and-dirty. And Shawn’s super awesome as always. I already ship him and Chu Qiao. Surprisingly Lin Geng Xin is looking pretty awesome too and I’m not as against the ship as I was in the beginning…we’ll see how things go.
    And the MV itself is so well done! All the heavy beats and drops correspond with awesomely well done slow-mo’s at certain points and just worked really well together. So excited right now. And this comes out right when I’m free for the summer so…really anticipating.

      It also gives off the feeling of something big happening. It’s not only intense, the beginning also feel incredibly grand and majestic.

      So jelly of you for having the summer off, Juli! One of the few things I miss about school – the vacation!

      You should sit right next to me when I spazz about the music video, it’s like a constant barrage of “YESH! I KNOW THIS PART! YESHHHHHHHH!” Lol.

    Can already tell the drama is gonna be really good when you look at the acting skills of the 4 leads. Their acting in those scenes that require intense emotions were all so spot on, and most of the time throughout the mv it felt like I was watching the characters themselves and not just this actor/actress. And the mv just screams desperation and despair throughout gosh.

    And damn, Li Qin is so freaking bad ass and gorgeous in that red costume and sword? It was such a memorable scene.
    ZLY’s acting really… She pushed herself up another level again. Her acting skills is really really good, I know she can act but this just showed everyone she can really act even in a really different and intense character.

    I am looking forward to the change in Shawn’s character though. It was saddening to see him cry.
    So far I have nothing for LGX, the mv didn’t reveal much.

      Lin Geng Xin has a tough role since the character doesn’t show his emotions, is quite wicked and cunning. I didn’t like him in the novel (from where I left off in the novel, just before Shawn’s change.) LGX’s takes more center role in the latter half of the book and win readers to his side then. Will be interesting!

    Thanks Kap. Awesome to have so many bits of news. Looking forward to PA like everyone else. She looks so pretty in the award. The pink looks nice but the dress could have been a little fluffier without the huge bwo behind. Otherwise I approve. She looks nice and the colour suits her. The red dress for the press conference looks awesome too. 72 Floors looks interesting so I will be watching that one.
