Sorry for the site downtime guys, I’m gonna expect more sudden downtime until I can get this sorted out. On the one hand, I don’t feel like AVV has grown, but on the other hand, resource is being eaten like hotcakes. Building a community is hard, building an active community is even harder.
It’s hard to focus on one drama per post when they churn out news endlessly throughout the day. Of the three dramas featured in here, I’m not sure which one I will watch. Nothing Gold Can Stay have weird coupling chemistry going on, The King’s Woman looks twisty and I don’t like mean lead guys even if he’s Zhang Bin Bin, but Dilreba looks stunning in all the stills, and Xuan Yuan Sword: Cloud of Han Dynasty…. I’m iffy about everyone’s okay acting. Lol.
Am I too hard to please? Or too jaded for dramaland?
The above still is hilarious, Chen Xiao is purposely trolling Sun Li. I’m surprised at the arrangement of the trailers released for Nothing Gold Can Stay. The first one features her heavily with Peter Ho, and now we get to see her with Chen Xiao in the second trailer. He still looks like her brother, with the way she manhandles him in every scene. XD As for Lost Love In Times with William Chan and Liu Shi Shi, we have a peek at its themesong, sung by Jane Zhang. It’s so soft and soothing, I didn’t expect it. Sounds oh so…..pretty? Lol.
It is an interesting trailer, one long-shot of Sun Li wandering through the night and visiting memories of the past. The chemistry thermometer is not what I want it to be! Peter Ho while plays the second male lead has more chemistry with Sun Li than her male lead, Chen Xiao. Chen Xiao looks like a younger brother around her. Lol.
UPDATE: Forgot to add that the actors will be using their real voices. No dubbing!
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I don’t think we need a reminder to appreciate our moms because such unconditional and selfless love can only stem from our parents. It always amazes how much my mom has accomplished so far despite being illiterate (she only recognizes her children’s names) and very poor for many years. She’s my star, my love, and my inspiration. Always and Forever.
A compilation of Chinese celebrities with their lovely mothers or some fans would say… their mother-in-laws (hehe)!
Why a spinoff? Because 62 episodes isn’t enough to tell the story? Cdramas, we need to talk about the new lengths you guys are reaching for in terms of dragging out storylines! The next downside is removing the female lead and replacing her with a new face. That never ends well with original fans. Ice Fantasy Destiny (幻城凡世) is the modern spinoff starring Feng Shao Feng in a CEO role as he unlocks memories and powers of his Ice Prince past, with actress Zhang Yu Qi as the leading female, followed by little brother Ma Tian Yu and his lady love, Alina Zhang.
Based on a true story, That Year Flower Blooms The Moon Is Full (那年花开月正圆) has an official English title as Nothing Gold Can Stay. The story features Chen Xiao (Romance of the Condor Heroes 2014) and Sun Li (Legend of Mi Yue) in a period drama at the end of the Qing Dynasty in Shaanxi, surrounding the merchant trade of silk. They held a press conference a few hours ago and boy was it a star-studded event from the TV industry with TVB ladies Myolie Wu and Niki Chow, as well as Ren Zhong, Yu Hao Ming, and veteran Zhang Chen Guang in attendance.
You know when I write about dramas, I rarely sit down and count them? Until I do and the list is humongous! There are about 20+ chinese dramas set to start filming in the winter of 2016, as you might already notice from the onslaught of press conferences and booting ceremonies this past week. To keep me sane, I have compiled the first batch here. Hee!
