I was preparing for bed until I saw the onslaught of updates on news sites. Turns out it’s Qixi Festival aka Chinese Valentine’s Day! Drama productions release new stills to celebrate the annual meeting of two (tragic) lovers, the tale of Zhi Nu and Niu Lang’s forbidden love as the cowherd and weaver girl in Chinese mythology. I’m sure we have at least watched one adaptation of this story.
You might drown in the stills so I focus mostly on ancient dramas….for now. Lol.
Time to let your heart and brain dance and sing for the celebration of a great new year ahead! Chinese broadcasting stations took their turns to invite as many Chinese stars and celebrities as possible to their platform in the last days of 2016. How did it fair? Fairly equal. Find your favorite stars down below. I think it’s a solid end to 2016.
20 minutes to go before the closing of curtains on 2016! Last post is this humongous compilation of videos. Forgive me if there are mistakes….I am holding a drink…or two. ;]
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but please don’t turn this post into a war zone again! Whether you like or dislike Huang Zi Tao (or any actor in general), it is a preference of your own. No one can judge you so please do not attack other commentators for having a different taste.
Now that’s out of the way, we saw Huang Zi Tao without his monkey hair last time and now the production has revealed his transformation into the Monkey King and it’s some scary and impressive stuff. Four hours of make-up! Drama A Chinese Odyssey: Love of Eternity is the upcoming remake of many’s beloved story in the past starring Stephen Chow as the Monkey King. [Read Story from Wiki]
Did I hear some hearts break? Drama adaptation of A Chinese Odyssey (大话西游) releases some stills of its cast and then news drop a few hours ago that Huang Zi Tao is up to romance Yang Mi in The Interpreter Season 2 in a new story. Nothing against Tao but he seems a baby next to Yang Mi. Looks like the new trend of pairing puppies with queens is in lately. Lol.
Chen Shen’s mask is not perfect, as good as he is at his job. His facade cracks when he was confronted with the shooting of his sister-in-law, and it cracks even more when he finally sits down with his former love again. The love rectangle is established and in place, but in such turbulent times, loving someone can mean losing everything.
