Officially older today! I feel the same as always. Tired! Funny how as you get older, birthdays become less of a big deal (duh, more wrinkles and white hair!!). I don’t even celebrate them anymore. My sweet, bubbly mom buys me a box of lobster and I’m good. Happy Birthday to all ya’ll November babies out there! Remember, live in the moment! 🙂
Looks like they are doing a series of Pearl Earrings dramas. Gui Gui will be in the first one that we have come to known as The Girl with Tassel Earrings alongside actor Dai Xiang Yu. Our leads meet when they work together to start and expand radio station at their school, but due to a misunderstanding, he steals her family heirloom – a pair of tassel earrings. To get them back, she slowly wins over his heart with her Intelligence and kindness (aka by surviving the mental and physical torture he dishes out….sounds familiar?)
Apparently, all my girlcrushes like to be tortured onscreen. *shrugs*
Wallace Huo‘s thriller series and Gui Gui‘s push-and-pull republican series came to an end this past week while many more started their booting ceremony in the same breath. Dramaland in China never sleeps. Check out the latest stills and trailers from both series!
Something is wrong with the water in dramaland. How is it that my favorite ladies are taking on stories where they are in unhealthy relationships?! Girl with Tree Blossom Earrings is a drama set in ~1930s Shanghai in the period when radio stations are beginning to take form and our main couple pushes for that change. When a misunderstanding arises, the hero puts the heroine through hell and even steals her family heirloom – a pair of tree blossom earrings.
How about some news round-up?
YAY! So glad Gui Gui has a new project on her hands and this time, she’s the lead! She has been playing supporting roles for a while now in Chinese projects and I’m glad she’s stepping up! Plus, her co-star, Dai Xiang Yu, is a hottie! We have seen him around quite a bit in Singles Villa, Poetic Justice, and the on-air Tea Love. I remember his face but know nothing about his acting. Tell me folks, is he good?
Sorry for the slow updates, just got promoted to be a full-time employee and I can’t catch enough sleep! 😉
