Behind-The-Scenes videos: Tribes and Empires, Ever Night, Legend of Fu Yao, Sweet Dreams

You know me, I love behind-the-scenes videos. These Chinese productions have hundreds of workers on locations every day, so it’s not strange to see how fast they can shoot a drama within 3 months (usually modern), day-in-day-out. What we see onscreen is a the final results of blood and sweats and watching these videos always shows a new level of appreciation for the crew who works tirelessly behind the cameras all-year long.

Adam Cheng and Karen Mok sing for Stephen Chow’s The Mermaid

EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! I know many don’t follow or have interest in this movie but I do. They dropped the themesong for the movie sang by Adam Cheng and Karen Mok and it’s epic!

I shall call this year the year of remakes. 😛 I’m sure we’re familiar with the storyline of this one. The seven noble (and hot) sons saving their beloved father in the face of the impossible. Only one shall live to tell the tale. Louis Koo was originally cast as first Son but he got injured and they replaced him with Ekin Cheng. Truth be told, these guys are handsome but not very tough-looking. I’m very fond of Yu Bo and his overall build is not too shabby, great even. My main problem with these men is their lanky legs! I mean, seriously, if you’re gonna save me, better build up them leg muscles or else I ain’t running with ya!
