Vietnam adapts 200 Pounds Beauty with Minh Hang and Rocker Nguyen

Interesting. Having been adapted many times throughout Asia, 200 Pounds Beauty is originally based on the Japanese manga Kanna’s Big Success! (カンナさん大成功です!) by Yumiko Suzuki, about a ghost singer who is overweight by tv standards and is used by another popular singer for her lovely voice, until she decides to own that voice with a new altered face and body after going through rounds and rounds of intensive plastic surgery. Such a sad story about the cut-throat industry…

China to remake Meteor Garden 2017: Which is Your Favorite?

I can’t with these constant remakes. XD Filming will begin in May 2017 and run for 6 months with 48 episodes. No news yet on the casting. Dun! Dun! Dunnnn! For those who have no idea what this is about, it’s based on the Japanese shōjo manga, Hana Yori Dango (花より男子) written and illustrated by Yoko Kamio, following our poor heroine as she fights against the elite group of rich boys known as F4 at a privilege school.

Live Action movie Fullmetal Alchemist featuring Ryosuke Yamada



My beloved anime, Fullmetal Alchemist (鋼の錬金術師), is adapted into a live action movie. Oiiiiiiiii! My heart is about to explode when I saw the first teaser, showing the beautiful wide shots of ruined cities, the horrifying transmutation circle, and a quick glance at our lovely brothers.

They have a story to tell, a lesson to learn and to TEACH, and a courage no evil can stop.

My heart, be still.
