Qin Jun Jie and Yuan Bing Yan lead Listening Snow Tower

Listening Snow Tower is a wuxia novel written by Cang Yue, first book in a trilogy. The name of the series stands for the name of the manor in the novel, a famous assassinating organization led by our enigmatic hero – Xiao Yi Qing (actor Qin Jun Jie), who is on a quest to rule jianghu and has built the place on blood and tears. Standing by his side is his beloved person Shu Jing Rong (actress Yuan Bing Yan), who is tied to him with the promise that she will only serve someone who can beat her. Unfortunately, the cold and unbending hero is laden with an incurable disease and his life could end anytime. Likewise, she’s distrustful of everyone around her. It’s an epic romance between two extraordinary people and how they think those around them don’t end up…well….alive.

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.

Yang Rong, Hawick Lau’s The Legend of Flying Daggers to air

Good or bad news… With Hawick Lau‘s scandal still lingering, I feel bad for Yang Rong and the whole cast ensemble. Legend of the Flying Daggers is the fifth and final installment to Gu Long‘s Little Li Flying Dagger series. FYI, Zhu Yi Long’s Border Town Prodigal is the third installment. The novel follows Li Huai, Li Xun Huan’s grandson, as he wanders in jianghu to help the poor and uphold justice using his grandfather’s Little Li Dagger technique. How I wish Hawick could use those little daggers in real life and cut off the scandalous tail he has acquired for himself. Spare us and Yang Mi the pain. Lol.

Kevin Cheng, Tang Yi Xin in Tai Chi Master: The Door of Tai Chi

Yay! Another hand-to-hand combat drama! (I still need to finish A Fist Within Four Walls. Lol.) A great mix of actors from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Mainland China. Handsome HK actor, Kevin Cheng, becomes a Tai Chi master in the upcoming period series, Tai Chi Master: The Door of Tai Chi (太極宗師之太極門). He is paired up with young Chinese actress, Tina Tang Yi Xin (The Legend of Chusen), and she’s looking pretty cute in all the stills. There is a short trailer and a whopping 38-minute trailer released so far. But, do watch the BTS clip that I uploaded. All these fancy action scenes are hilarious in practice.  Hee!
