Our heroine is an accomplished managing agent who believes that this vacation to a resort will bring her love for her managed artist (played by Zheng Yun Long) to fruition. However, the person he proposes to is not her…Shocked and overwhelmed, she drinks her sorrows away at the beach, catching the eye of a warm-hearted man, our hero, who helps her learn to live and love. Married for years, another couple, played by Zhang Jing Chu and Dong Cheng Peng, go on vacation at the same resort but it’s an act in front of their relatives. She, a career-oriented woman, is tired of her husband’s laziness and has already filed for divorce. This vacation is his chance to win back his wife.

The Adventurers is a heist film with a Mission: Impossible feel about a team of thieves traveling around Europe, attempting to find pieces of a valuable necklace known as GAIA, while evading a French cop determined to catch them in the act. It stars Andy Lau (House of Flying Daggers, Infernal Affairs) and Jean Reno (The Professional, Mission Impossible). If you liked the Oceans 11, 12 and 13 or From Vegas to Macau movies, this will be right up your alley.
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
Another year of weibo night. To be honest, the awards seem to matter less and less each year. Show up? Here ya go. Beside the Weibo King and Queen of the Year, I didn’t really read about the others. Lol.
In the new action thriller, Sky on Fire (冲天火), Daniel Wu stars as a security agent tasked with protecting a group of scientists who created a drug that can extend one’s life. Multiple parties want a piece of the drug and whether it’s used for justice or for evil, depends on our agent and his crew. Thrown in the mix of life and death are Zhang Ruo Yun, Zhang Jing Chu, Amber Kuo, Joseph Chang, and Wayne Lai.
Hua Jiang Hu Zhi Bu Liang Ren (画江湖之不良人) is the drama adaption of a Wuxia animation series of the same name (like Qin’s Moon). The story takes place during the Tang Dynasty and revolves around a secret government agency trying to obtain a national treasure weapon called the dragon sword. To do that, they assassinated two great martial artists, leaving their kids to survive in the chaotic world. The kids are played by Zheng Ye Cheng, otherwise known as Hao Mei from Just One Smile is Very Alluring, and Li Chun (Hua Qiao Gu). They are taken in and taught martial arts by Elder Yang. In their journey in jianghu to uncover the conspiracy of the secret group, they meet the love of their lives in Cai Wen Jing and Fan Shi Qi.
The majority of the cast is related to Zhao Li Ying. It’s nice that everyone is branching off to do their own things.
