Wow. Such a young cast. Karry Wang Jun Kai from TFBOYS is only 18 and his female lead is Vicky Chen Wen Qi, the youngest (14) winner for the latest Golden Horse Award for Best Supporting Actress (The Bold, the Corrupt, and the Beautiful). The upcoming youth drama is Eagles and Youngster (天坑鹰猎) adapted from the novel written by Tian Xia Ba Chang following the rivalry of two hunting clans at the end of the 80s. Our hero begins the story around the same age as Karry (main reason why he’s chosen) and he’s tasked with finding an antidote to save his master shifu by traveling to a faraway land where he makes friends with a few key characters. He begins a dangerous journey of human against nature.
Inspirational youth drama, Boy Hood (我们的少年时代), with the aim to encourage younger generation to run towards their dreams and fight for their beliefs will be meeting tv viewers very soon. The drama stars Chinese boy band TFBoys – Wang Jun Kai, Wang Yuan, and Jackson Yi and other age-appropriate actors such as Zhang Zi Feng, Li Jun Hao, Song Yu Er, and teacher roles played by Li Xiao Lu, Danson Tang, and Joker Xue.
A new variety show is coming to town! Dunno about you but the first three names (powerhouse of talents!) is enough to have my interest piqued for Zhejiang new variety show called Super Boys (高能少年团) with Zhang Yi Shan, Liu Hao Ran, Dong Zi Jian, Karry Wang Jun Kai, and Darren Wang. The show will be putting the boys through various outdoor and indoor challenges over a course of their weekly adventures. There are guests! Female guests and the list will send you drooling about. What to do with the bouncy youthful energy all around you?!
Not sure how I feel about using The Great Wall of China as a protection barrier against monsters… The leader in this war is Matt Damon, and aided by Andy Lau, along with a healthy number of American and Chinese actors. While I’m not too excited to anticipate it, they do have many faces that I love, hence my shallow interest. Exposure is good! heh. The director is Zhang Yi Mou, ah, who did The Flowers of War and Coming Home these past two years.
