With the drama section (Magnolia Awards) over with, here is the stars strutting it out for their upcoming movies! SO MANY. I’m drowning in pretty pics. The men are wicked awesome tonight. Usually they have on boring, routine stuff, but tonight, they shine more than the ladies, in my humble opinion. XD
Another case of remakes making its round across Asia. It’s the remake of Japanese drama Operation Love (プロポーズ大作戦) which aired in 2007 with Nagasawa Masami and Tomohisa Yamashita as leads. The Chinese remake stars EXO’s Lay (The Mystic Nine) and movie actress Chen Dou Ling (The Left Ear). I’ll say that I was worried with the news since neither impressed me with their first big acting project, but now the stills and the first trailer show them being adorably harmless and cute, I feel much better! It’s basically a second-chance at happily-ever-after with the hero being given the opportunity to travel back in time and right his regrets.
If only we all have Julian Cheung as our second-chance guardiam angel. Heh.
Performances are not as kool as End-of-the-Year shows. I didn’t really pay attention to them as much, so feel free to post the ones I missed. Was only waiting for one thing: the reunion between Michael Miu‘s Yang Kang and Felix Wong‘s Guo Jing at the very end (Jiangsu TV).
I anticipated the whole week for this event until the bomb dropped last night that Li Ying wouldn’t be able to attend because she needed to film an important scene for her movie, Ride the Winds Break the Waves, with Eddie and Deng Chao. Sigh….. Her manager went in her stead and she won Artist of the Year Award. Most of the attendees were Li Ying’s co-stars too! Good thing they have a good variety of stars to reel me back in. heh. The pretty!
Not much going on in dramaland but music land? Everyone and their grandmas decided to drop a single this past week. Lol. I keep on pushing this batch back and removing bullet points to make individual posts. It’s been…two weeks now? But yes, lots of news.
Finally, the long wait is over. The movie sequel to the popular TVB series 15 years ago, Return of the Cuckoo, will hit theaters tomorrow. I’m nervous about it, honestly. While not the greatest series, Cuckoo left a deep impression on me as child and kinda scarred me a bit too. The characters I should love, I loved. The characters I should hate, I hated. It’s such a dear part of my childhood and kick-started one of my first OTP ships ever in Hong Kong entertainment – Charmaine Sheh and Julian Cheung, together as Charlian. I really don’t want anything to ruin that perfect nostalgic feeling. Yunno? It’s been 15 years… their chemistry is no longer the same…
A lot of pictures and trailers/mv after the jump! You’re warned!
