Zhang Zi Yi’s drama debut Monarch Industry with Zhou Yi Wei, Tony Yang, and Yuan Hong confirms airdate!

Emperor’s Conquest/Monarch Industry (上阳赋) is adapted from the novel written by Mei Yu Zhe and stars Zhang Zi Yi in her television debut! I know it’s a shocker that she never did a drama in her whole career until three years ago when this was filmed. The production remains so quiet and secretive until now. Then Boom. Airing. Lol. The story follows two intelligent people bound together by a political marriage that slowly morphs into an epic relationship of love, loyalty, and trust in their conquest of the world. Female cast is not to be joked around either – Kara Hui, Angie Chiu!

You can read the translated novel here (still in progress).

Airing 1/9 on youku!

Movie Review: The Wasted Times (Cmovie, 2016)

One of my favorite Chinese movies, The Wasted Times, is now on Viki so I had to review it. I watched this last year during a trip to China and was really drawn in to the story as well as the incredible cinematography so I was eager to watch it again. It’s a dark drama about a Chinese mob boss and a Japanese national, which starts just before the Japanese invasion of Shanghai through to the end of the Sino-Japanese War, and stars Ge You (To Live) and Tadanobu Asano (Thor: Ragnarok).

The Birth of An Actor Show: Episode 1 with Zheng Shuang, Ren Jia Lun, Zhai Tian Lin, Yu Shao Qun

The Birth of An Actor is a new show on Zhejiang TV featuring a crop of actors and actresses in acting challenges against a fellow actor each week. The judges are Song Dan Dan, Zhang Zi Yi, and Liu Ye. Actor Zhang Guo Li serves as the MC. Acting is still subjective in my opinion so this show is a platform for fiery discussion among netizens, fans, and non-fans alike. The always hot-topic individual Zheng Shuang is in the first week, pitted against Ren Jia Lun and Song Dan Dan, while she wins against Allen, she loses to the veteran actress, respectively. In the short play, Zheng Shuang plays Zhang Zi Yi’s character in her big screen’s debut The Road Home, directed by Zhang Yi Mou. Other contestants in the same episode are Zhai Tian Lin, Yu Shao Qun, Huang Lu, and Liu Yun.
