It is getting cold and I wish I had Nicky Wu to take care of me. Lucky Liu Shishi recently shot a photoshoot with her hubby Mr.Wu. Meanwhile, in the entertainment world, some movie/drama stills were released, some variety shows are announced and some scandals are created.

Drama Zhu Xian released more BTS with Li Yifeng:
A video concept for Si Mei Ren Best Beauty was released and it definitely creates more positive hype for this production starring Ma Ke and Viann Zhang.
Stay With Me released first concept character posters starring Chen Qiao En, Wang Kai and Kimi Qiao. The story is about a girl losing her memory for the last seven years, trying to get back together with her ex while dealing with her current fiance. [complete synopsis here at lifewithdramas]. From these pictures, I love how the chair define the character. 😛
Drama Three Heroes and Five Gallants feels so cheap quality that I am sure all three leads are regretting picking up this project. Sigh… BUT, the biggest victim in all this is Yan Kuan! HAHAHA, look at this…
New drama Sister and Sister 姐妹姐妹 released character still starring Yan Kuan and Du Ruoxi.

X Fire is a new variety show starring Li Yuchun and Shu Qi that we never really talked about. The concept is simple: the two gorgeous women go head to head to train the next generation of music talents by grouping them into two teams. Here is a nice series of pictures of the two ladies:
Hunan Satellite is doing things right! Their newest variety show addition called 妈妈是超人 Mother Is Superwoman will (based on rumors) have Liu Tao and Alyssia Chia!! OMG, so excited. We will have to see who else will be casted, but I am already motivated to watch it ^^ Maybe I will write a recap!

2015 Mobile Video Festival
- [From archidisgn] There is currently a huge kpop scandal over Tzuyu (member of kpop group Twice) on weibo and other Chinese social media. In brief, cnetizens are mad because she hold proudly a Taiwanese flag and said she was Taiwanese instead of Chinese. I won’t get into the polical side of this “scandal”, but I feel like adding a few word on the subject since we often cover weibo trending subjects 😉
- First, RELAX! Unlike what others are saying, this is not THAT big of a scandal in China. It already stopped trending much on weibo and other movies, dramas, birthday wishes are replacing this hashtag. Second, you may get scarred at the number of upvotes, but in truth, a lot of posts get a lot of upvotes on weibo (remember China is a huge country?) I feel like international kpop community is exaggerating the scandal a bit.
- Last, I am quiet surprised this is even a scandal. She is definitely not the first Taiwanese to work in mainland and I can even go as far as saying that about one third of the c-entertainers are not mainland Chinese (I account Taiwanese, HKese, Koreans, Thai, etc). I would say she need to be a bit more careful with her words considering JYP wants advancement in China. She didn’t do anything wrong per say, but sometime in life, it is not about doing things right. It is doing things that will please the public (especially in the entertainment world). It is more dangerous with people like her and Jackson who are not 100% Chinese, decide to go work in Korea and then want to come back in China for more opportunities. With dual identity, it is never easy. That’s all!
