The first official trailer is dropped and My Story For You with Zheng Shuang and Luo Jin feels very different from your usual overly dramatic Chinese modern dramas. It’s hard for me to stomach 90% of modern Cdramas or should I say the mainstream ones with popular actors and actresses. It tends to drag on for a thousand of dog-blood years before reaching an abrupt end. Lol. Maybe because it’s based on a writer’s personal love story with his wife, so he was able to work with the team to create the atmosphere he wanted. I do like what I see ~
Manhunt (追捕) is an upcoming thriller movie that is directed by John Woo as a way to commemorate late Japanese actor Ken Takakura, who starred in the original in 1976, which was also based on Japanese novel Kimi yo Fundo no Kawa o Watare by Juko Nishimura. The new remake follows the same story setup with Zhang Han Yu as a prosecutor who is framed for robbery and multiple murders and on the run. He’s chased by Japanese actor Masaharu Fukuyama, who plays a detective. Female cast includes Qi Wei and Korean actress Ha Ji Won. Plenty of reasons to catch this one!
It’s here! The most anticipated drama for the last two years…. LOL! 2 episodes per day, VIP accounts get to see more, of course… I honestly don’t have the time to recap this drama and with my comprehension skill, I think I’m gonna butcher all the names and places. Open arms for volunteers, let me know! 🙂
William Chan‘s foray in films takes him into the beautiful grassland as he plays the conqueror and founder of the Mongol Empire by uniting many of the nomadic tribes of Northeast Asia in the movie Genghis Khan (战神纪) alongside Jelly Lin Yun and Hu Jun. First teaser and some stills after the jump!
Trying a new feature since I see fans always asking is this or that drama worth checking out? If you’re watching the new modern vampire drama Can Not Hug You with Xing Zhao Lin and Zhang Yu Xi, let us what you think: the goods and the bads! It begins airing today 11/20.
I am a plain jane when it comes to Fashion so I never watch these fashion shows. Lol. The first Victoria’s Secrets (VS) Fashion Show in China is held last night in Shanghai with seven Chinese Models strutting down the runaway in elaborate lingerie that no one would wear on a normal day. XD
We only have a dozen episodes left to Oh My General, has anyone been keeping up? I know it was one my anticipated dramas but I still haven’t gotten the time or the will to sit down and watch. Maybe I’ll try to catch up after it finishes airing.
Yan Shi Fan (艳势番) is the novel-to-drama adaptation of a novel written by Han Lu. The story takes place at the end of the Qing Dynasty and beginning of the Republic of China, following a bunch of youths in a time of turbulence, power struggles, and nation’s pride. Huang Zi Tao and Jackson Yi play dual lead roles; Huang Zi Tao plays Chong Li Ming, a leader to one of Eight Banners aka elite forces of the Qing military. But his other identity is leader to a special royal organization (assassination group), Yan Shi Fan, which protects the nation. Despite A Yi (Jackson Yi)’s humbling background, he encourages the boy to join. A Yi is described as beautiful, quiet, and cruel, with potentials to become a killing machine. A profound friendship develops among the men (yes there are a group of pretty boys!) as they go through difficulties and challenges, realizing their ideals and desire to protect their homeland, and joining the revolution.
The other boys include Yu Meng Long, and Wang Rui Chang. It’s a male-centric drama so Hu Bing Qing‘s screen time is limited.
