Legend of Ace begins filming with Michael Chen and Gina Jin

I’m feeling rather lukewarm about this series, mainly because our hero is described many times by novel readers as another version of Jin Yong’s famous character, Wei Xiao Bao, and I’m not fond of him at all! Then they cast Michael Chen He (Run Brother) in the role and that’s kind of a deadly combination – cannot take this man seriously. Lol. I hope he proves me wrong because the only medium I have watched him in is variety shows and that is very different for everyone. Rising new face Gina Jin plays one of the main roses in his life.

First trailer for Les Interprètes with Yang Mi and Huang Xuan

I have to say, I didn’t have interest in this drama but as I read reviews from novel fans, I think I will tune in after all.

I wonder whether they have to re-shoot that scene several times to get it right.

In addition, it feels more grounded than your usual fare. Looking good.

The opening themesong is released just a few hours ago accompanied by lots and lots of spoilers. You are warned!
