Webdrama Hero’s Dream (天意之秦天宝鉴) is adapted from a sci-fi novel Heaven’s Will written by Qian Li Fang. Not much about the novel is talked about but the vague synopsis describes the journey of a young talented lad (Ou Hao) after he’s offered an opportunity by a mysterious man to change his life. His character becomes the god of war – the Great General Han Xin, who served under Liu Bang (Zhang Dan Feng) and contributed to the founding of the Han dynasty. The promises of intriguing power plays, manipulations, and mysterious unknown forces all come together for (hopefully) an excellent re-imagining of history.
With the drama section (Magnolia Awards) over with, here is the stars strutting it out for their upcoming movies! SO MANY. I’m drowning in pretty pics. The men are wicked awesome tonight. Usually they have on boring, routine stuff, but tonight, they shine more than the ladies, in my humble opinion. XD
I thought this post will never see the light of day. Every time I thought I was done, I turned around and they held a conference, released new pictures and bts videos. Good stuff, but too many news to sort through!
First trailer is out and they aren’t cheap with explosions and fresh meat. Led by Zhu Ya Wen (as Zhou En Lai), Liu Ye (as Mao Zedong), Oho Ou (as Ye Ting), Ma Tian Yu (as Lin Biao), Liu Hao Ran (as Su Yu), and Ma Yi Li (as Xiang Jing Yu), The Founding Of An Army begins in 1927 at the beginning of the Nanchang uprising, known as the first major Kuomintang–Communist engagement.
Of course after my initial post, they went and released a trailer shortly after…along with a press conference. In the trailer, you can see Japanese actors Meisa Kuroki and Kento Hayashi, to quench your thirst! So, so, cute. Continue reading →
Awww so cute! The first batch of stills for upcoming youth film Fist & Faith (青禾男高) is hitting me all in the right spots! Jing Tian with her beautiful and milky skin is perfect in a gentle campus teacher, combined her with a tough-looking Oho Ou Hao and I’m harked back to the old tvb drama tropes, rich girl and poor bad boy with a heart of gold. The story is set in 1932 during the times of Japanese invasion after the Mukden Incident and the pro-Japanese government was installed. The other synopsis I’m reading about involves school bullying and power struggles between the Chinese and Japanese students with Japanese actors Meisa Kuroki and Kento Hayashi on board to do just that. I’m confused. In any case, I hope it is done carefully~
