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.
Still not officially confirmed but the piece of information did make a splash in the news sites. The funny thing is Angelababy’s name was circulated first in the beginning of this year. Lol. Remember the fiasco with Bi Yao? Tsk! If this news rings true, she will get to work with many big names in the film industry. Expand those credentials! Yao Mao Zhuan (妖猫传 or in English as Legend of the Demon Cat) is a film project from director Chen Kai Ge (Monk Comes Down the Mountain, Forever Enthralled) and famed writer Wang Hui Ling (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Lust Caution, The Crossing). Attached along with her name is Chen Kun and TFBoys’ Wang Jun Kai. Since it’s based on a Japanese novel, (which I cannot find anywhere!) the production team will be inviting Japanese actors to cooperate as well. It’s said they have worked for five years to polish the script and filming will begin in the latter half of 2016. The story takes place in the Tang Dynasty and they are working to build a stunning masterpiece set.
