    The Thousand Faces of Dunjia looks very interesting, epic and humorous to watch.

    Never got far with Nif, please don’t sue me, I’m only worth a penny. But, Nif 2 is my most anticipated series right now. For whatever reason, fresh young faces often bring interest to me. Plus, I like the younger bro aspect of the story, “martial arts”, I’m in. And I like the theme song, it sounds epic. Also, everybody license this, so yay. lol

    Faithful to Buddha Faithful to You is totally random to me, but I’ll check it out. Monk love story? Why not! Grow that hair and get the pretty girl brother!

    The Monkey King 3: Land of Beauty, and The Thousand Faces of Dunjia, I will do more than watch, I will buy. They’re both coming over to the states. Li Ying in Blu-ray quality, let’s go!

    Ok, I’m done, bye! 😀

      Lol I’m definitely on the opp end with NiF and NiF2. I do like new faces, but personally since I know I’m not a fan of Zhang Hui Wen in her previous movie roles and stuff, she’s less of a new face to me and more of a, kind of not looking forward to her but also don’t wanna judge feeling. I did love NiF (beyond explaining at this pt). I’m actually ALSO anticipating NiF2, but at the same time, I’m not sure how I feel because I like the brother aspect, but I’m also not confident in HXM’s capability of pulling off an emotionally great brotherhood with LHR. Definitely excited tho because comparatively NiF2 has MUCH more war/battle/large-fighting scenes than NiF…I always wanted to see Xiao Shu as an actual general and while this isn’t him, it’s still fulfilling the awesome-young-marshal-yay dream. Doesn’t hurt that I love LHR.

      Yeah actually, a large part of my “dislike” if you can really call it that for NiF2 stems from the cast. in both, I like the main lead (Hu Ge, and now LHR) but actually for me NiF had more “new faces” for me just cuz I’m too ignorant and didn’t actually know a lot of the veterans in NiF (and then there were actually new peeps like Qiao Xin and stuff) whereas NiF2 has more actors I know but don’t necessarily like (sorry guys, but mainly HXM and to some small extent Zhang Hui Wen).

      And to be completely fair, I didn’t really like Liu Tao before NiF either so who knows maybe I’ll love NiF2 no matter what. (don’t hate, I’d only seen her in the Tian Long Ba Bu from the early 2000s as a child)

      Another minus for NiF2 that COMPLETELY personal (totally just me, probably) is that by personality I really don’t like “second generation” characters in stories. I usually get so attached to the original characters that for any sequel that continues with the descendants in the same “story universe” general get strong “discrimination” from me. It’s a totally irrational emotional reaction, but I just tend to dislike the “second generation” at first impression. Maybe it’s some twisted misplaced loyalty to my og fav characters but that’s just me.

      So yeah, while the Chang Lin war banner really hits me hard in a good way everytime I see it, I also remember all my fav characters that are NOT gonna be in the sequel and I just find it hard to feel anything past apathy before I actually start watching. Make no mistake tho, despite any misgivings, I’m definitely watching and hopefully will love it.

      Gotta say tho, Tong Li Ya is looking SO BOMB. Honestly she looks so badass I’m liking her more than Nihuang in NiF. Maybe cuz the more-war-stuff feel lets us see TLY in action and she can show off her coolness.

    Will Faithful to Buddha Faithful to You (不负如来不负卿) keep the time travel element of the story? And is this a tragic love story?

    ZLY hat looks silly but she still pass to look very good in it, I find her quite pretty in it. Now that you mentioned mermaid, omg I did secretly forgot for a few seconds and believed her to be a queen of the sea without realizing it.
    What was more unexpected though, is that she will be playing the personality very soft-hearted, very kind, very passionate, a little playful, weak and helpless. She had played the roles of being nice many many times, when they announced her to play this role I got the impression that she was going to get to play something else (no, not anything like Chu Qiao though) but something like Hu Jing in Quest for Sutra ’02, she was almost ruthless and controlling or arrogant but respectable personality. I feel kind of crushed to see ZLY playing this repetitive personality. But at least I went through all of the trailers above and none of them were as interesting as Monkey King 3, I didn’t find Nirvana 2 too interesting.

    I feel a little let down by the trailer for Faithful to Buddha, Faithful to You… but it’s also a classic case of being a book snob, lol. I listened to the audiobook and the monk had the most beautiful male Chinese voice I’ve ever heard. So soothing and just right for a beautiful young monk, lol.

    I was very disappointed that Thousand Faces of Dunjia is playing in US theaters instead of Youth. But I might just check it out since I had planned on seeing a chinese movie in theaters this weekend
