It’s here! The most anticipated drama for the last two years…. LOL! 2 episodes per day, VIP accounts get to see more, of course… I honestly don’t have the time to recap this drama and with my comprehension skill, I think I’m gonna butcher all the names and places. Open arms for volunteers, let me know! 🙂
Awww man, our Mr. Smile aka Shawn Dou Xiao will be doing another modern drama… but it sounds so dark and gloomy! Hear me cry. It’s adapted from manga series Asunaro Hakusho (あすなろ白書 “Asunaro White Paper”) by Fumi Saimon.
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.
OMGAHHH!! Can I get a hallaluyah?! Oh yea, my birthday month is proving to be a festive occasion! Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy (海上牧云记) with Huang Xuan, Shawn Dou, Xu Lu, and Zhou Yi Wei is finally airing!!
I miss Mr. Sunshine. Don’t you? After making a splash in dramaland with his tv debut performance as Prince Yan Xun in Princess Agents, Shawn Dou has other projects to quench your thirst; all of which have finished filming (he wrapped the last one up last week). For the count, Shawn has four unaired dramas under his belt. Reminders below. =D
Words in the alley reveal that Tears in Heaven is airing on 10/9. *fingers crossed*
Saw pictures of the cast of Feng Xiao Gang‘s movie, Youth (芳华), crying their eyes out at the press conference and I thought someone was injured. Turns out the coming-of-age movie about the military art troupe is delayed and won’t be premiering during the national weekend next week, as anticipated by movie goers, who found out they couldn’t book tickets. The production and director did not give an official explanation but many theories have been mentioned. 1) Sensitive subject (the Sino-Vietnam war) 2) movie’s final script is different than the submitted version calling for changes 3) Fierce competition for national holidays weekend with a total release of 10 different films.
Sailor Moon! Oh man…. this brings back memories. Lol. A lot of updates for movies from new stills to new teasers/songs; a huge chunk taken from the next news batch and some you might have seen on AVV twitter as I battled against site issues!
