A new and short entertainment update just because I want to release these gorgeous pictures of Yoona a little faster ^^… There were a lot of fresh sudden news today!
Interesting and unexpected. Yu Zheng Production just announced they are working on Legend of Lu Zhen 2. The drama was a huge hit in 2013 and was what pushed Zhao Liying and Chen Xiao to stardom. This sequel is supposed to be based on the novel 最後的王公 The Last Kingdom and will have some war companents during the Sui Southern and Northern Dynasties. It is aiming for 40 episodes and the rumored director is Gao Xixi. I don’t think neither Zhao Liying nor Chen Xiao should do it though, as their last two performances in Yumama’s projects were all messy (ROCH and YZG).
New drama adaptation of a novel. This time, the novel is 如果蝸牛有愛情 What If a Snail Falls in Love. Anyone a fan of the book? (Edit: the good English translation for the novel title seems to be When a Snail Loves. Thanks to @flayfuldesigns for correcting me 😛 It is aiming for 30 episodes and Wang Kai as lead…).
Another interesting adaptation: novel 鏡花緣 Flowers in the Mirror will also have its live-action version! Shanghai Television Media Co., Ltd. and Zhejiang Dongyang Hengdian studios are working on it together. It should start filming next February and it is (ambitiously) aiming for a 2016 end of the year release…
Yang Mi and Wallace Huo will (maybe) have a movie together. It is called Deadly Countdown 致命倒数. I am not a 100% the source is reliable since the actors themselves did not share the news and the casting did not make the headlines yet… This could mean their first reunion six years after the success that was Chinese Paladin 3.
As mentionned previously, Madame White Snake (also known as Legend of White Snake Maiden) is rumored to have a new adaptation. This is a great classic in Chinese/ TVB dramaland so I hope no one will butcher it. Li Chen or William Chan is rumored to play the male protagonist, even though let’s be real, that character is really boring (as boring as Tang Seng’s role in Journey to the West in my opinion) so getting casted for that role isn’t very exciting… We are more curious on the female lead casting! 😛
Nine Old Gates released first official Behind The Scenes pictures starring William Chan, Zhang Yixing and Zhao Liying. William Chan looks as handsome as always ^_^
Great news! Go Fighting Season 2 will be back with the same cast! Oh yeah! Huang Lei posted the news on his weibo and was afterward confirmed by Sina. They will start filming again in January. I am happy for them as I love the show, but I feel like they should at least wait for the movie to come out before restarting filming so fast.
Talking about it, they released some new extra posters of the cast for the movie:
More stills for Beautiful Secret starring Victoria Song and Peter Ho (seriously, this needs to be released!):
New stills for drama A Detective Housewife starring the real life couple Li Xiaolu and Jia Nailiang. The drama is aiming for a January 2016 release.
Some more gorgeous picture of Im Yoona for Chinese Hero:
Also, Yoona recently filmed a MV with Li Yifeng called Please Contact Me:
Movie The Monkey King 2 starring Feng Shaofeng, Aaron Kwok, and Xiao Shenyang released more posters of the main quatrio:
Detective Chinatown starring Wang Baoqiang and Chen Sicheng also released some stills:
You know a drama is overdoing the promotion when they barely started filming and already have a hundred posters! xD Or if even the decorative objects gets their own posters! Here are some of them for Zhu Xian, the others will also be added to the main article 😉
Finally, gossip news discussion:
- Chen He, one of the main lead of the Ipartment series and part of the main cast of Run Brother has officially announced his relationship with Zhang Zixuan (costar in Fleet of Time in which both cameo-ed in 2014). The news is receiving a lot of (extremely) harsh comments from the cnetizens, since she is known to be have been his lover. It is a known fact that he cheated on his college sweetheart, with whom he has been dating for more than seven years and eventually got married, to be with Zhang Zixuan.
- My opinion: I must side with the cnetizens as I am disapproving this relationship. However, I find it a little sad how everyone is directing their hate on the female side of this relationship, especially since Chen He should be the one getting the hate. In addition, as a fan of Run Brother, this makes Chen He less fun to watch on the show. What do you guys think?
