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.

Friday Photoshoots: Li Yi Feng, Zhou Dong Yu, Wu Jing, Chang Chen

Hope your friday went well! My friday started with a morning cold splash. Lol. So this girl and her friend hopped on the bus and dropped one of their starbucks drinks….right on my thighs. I’m not one to draw attention to myself so I was busy wiping off the colorful splash on my scrubs until I noticed fingers pointing and raising voices around me. Apparently, the older community on the bus was livid the girl didn’t apologize and called them rude teenagers and all. The teen girl and her friend….cursed right back. O_O. Then the tension got real and the girls decided to hop off the bus and put up their fingers outside the window. Sigh. What great kids we have taking care of elderly us in the future. Parents, spend ample time teaching your kids!

But anyway, long holiday weekend ahead of me!! =D

Ancient Drama Updates: Legend of Fu Yao, The King of Blaze, God of Lost Fantasy, Win The World

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.

Drama-Binging: What Are You Watching? (11)

What can I say…. I will binge-watch Princess Agents at the end. Lol. The other show I’m watching is Seven Day Queen, and while both shows are tragic, one is tragically messy (PA) the other is tragically compelling (7DQ), but of course, I’m in the minority with PA’s 35 Billion views+. LOL. I still can’t believe they did that to poor Seo No!! It was fitting but so unexpected for me. I thought he would last longer or at least be the one to stay with Chae Kyung after she’s deposed!

So what are you guys watching? Maybe I need some fluffy romance or just simply something unique!

We finally have a peek at the styling for our OTP – Yang Mi and Ethan Ruan in their upcoming period drama Legend of Fu Yao (扶摇皇后), an adaptation from the novel written by Tian Xia Gui Yuan, same author behind Chen Kun’s The Rise of Phoenixes. And I’m happy to report that both look good! Yang Mi had horrendous styling in Eternal Love that I still can’t get over them (lol), so am glad they made her look very pretty here!
