Zhao Li Ying stars in Kenny Kwan’s To Love You MV

Love it when Li Ying reaches out and does something for/with her friends. They starred in two dramas together, Legend of Mermaid and The Wife’s Secret, both of which I didn’t finish. She went to Hong Kong for a few days during her short break to film Kenny Kwan’s new music video. 🙂 But how could he make her look so plain with the middle hair-split? Lol. The song isn’t mind-blowing or anything, except my high school crush looks good with facial hair!

Ruby Lin’s Singing All Along (Chang Ge Xin) secures air date

When Ruby mentioned the airing date for the Nth time at the most recent interview, I of course waved it off. But now it’s official! Darn this drama with all the pretty boys and girls gathered together has been shelved for what, 3 years? Anyway, having the most ridiculous English title ever, Singing All Along (秀麗江山之長歌行) will premiere on June 23rd on Jiang Su TV folks [Master Post]! Mark your calendar. I don’t even remember what the story is about anymore. Lol.

Zhao Li Ying’s character teaser for The Mystic Nine

Don’t worry, The Mystic Nine is just the official English name for Old Nine Gates (老九门). One heck of a badass name, don’t ya think? Two weeks ago, they gave us a character teaser for William Chan‘s character and now we have one for his devoted wifey. Zhao Li Ying is only a recurring guest role so not many scenes in the series, keke. Her role as Yin Xin Yue is mischievous and smart young lady. She has a fiancé but falls in love with William after their first encounter (and saves him many times after). When he falls from the top, she’s there to support and protect him from various assassination groups. Like she has balls of steels! I love her character already.

Nope. Never those dang straight bangs. LOL!

Stylish first trailer for The Legend of Flying Daggers

The news needs to slow down! I shut my eyes for four hours and more news comes out. The new adaptation of Gu Long’s novel has dropped its first English-subbed trailer. It’s three-minute long with an instrumental background, but keep your volume at a low level because at some point, Yang Rong lets out a high-pitched scream after her fallen lover, Hawick Lau. Girl hasn’t been watching wuxia dramas, no one dies falling off a cliff. heee!

Yang Rong’s gorgeous palace in Gu Long’s Flying Daggers

It’s only one still but if I had a palace house like Yang Rong in the latest remake of Gu Long’s The Legend of Flying Daggers, I would host my Thanksgiving and Christmas party there every year! Basically, I would never leave. Is everyone here all set for the big dinner tomorrow? Don’t head out to the grocery store because you’re most likely gonna get a black eye. Not pointing fingers but it was brutal last year. Lol. Happy Thanksgiving to our fellow drifters (~^_^~)! Remember to be thankful for what you have instead of the luxuries you don’t own (read: Black Friday is just around the corner! =P) There is a reason why you have those in the first place. Cherish them! =)

The Legend of Flying Daggers drops silky costume posters

Is this the promo week for costumes? Which production to outdo the rest and rise above in terms of creativity and beauty? I don’t mind one-colored costumes but then you set yourself up for some needed eye-catching designs to prevent blandness! Gu Long’s The Legend of Flying Daggers drops a batch of posters for their characters yesterday and I’m pretty much not as pumped as I thought I would be. They overly photoshopped these actors too much! C’mon, editing crew, you have a group of beautiful people!

With all that being said, I haven’t finished Julian (Chi Lam)’s version yet, I think I’m stuck at episode 5 or something. No time!
