[Drama][Part 2] Old Nine Gates with William Chan and Lay

12400705_570368639779725_7447502526743630505_nSecond collection of pictures for Old Nine Gates :)) Enjoy~~ I know most people don’t like how they styled Zhao Liying, but I find her so cute with this new hairstyle! And the fluffiness of her costumes is awesome~ Otherwise, Lay looks adorable but I heard he has received some criticism for his acting :/

[Update on February 18th with more pictures: those pictures were also shared on the Entertainment Update of the same day]

First article here. I took the information there and added it to this post 🙂


On the eve of the Battle of ChangSha, a mysterious train is travelling with the male lead Zhang Qishan in it. As the story goes on, Zhang Qishan with the help of his newly made friend ErYue Hong finds a tomb with a big secret. (Oh, and they both fall in love with the female leads) Both are part of the Old Nine Gates, a group composed of nine members. They off play the Japanese people before the Battle of Changsha and saved hundred of lives. At the end, an epic battle happens between the troops led by Zhang Qishan and the Japanese invaders.

    Actually, I think it’s a riding crop but a honking big one. Perhaps the costumer has taken some artistic license? Or else he’s riding a water buffalo? Still, we’re all just enjoying the other parts of the photos.


  2. OMG! All the stills look good, especially Liying! *_* To be frank, the stills are all super pretty, but it makes the drama look very… boring? Like normally, shouldn’t they release more angsy and emotional stills to make us more attracted to the drama? Anyway I will have to wait and see,


    • intellectualkitten says:

      You are right, they look like they are posing on every picture… not real stills. But I really love the cast, so I will still give it a shot 😛


  3. I agree with you that Er Yuer Hong’s (二月红) description does sound creepy….lmao XD But the criticism with his acting…it’s inevitable because he didn’t really have a lot of acting experiences (nor “life experience” to open up) compare to his co-stars.


    • intellectualkitten says:

      Yes! I watched his movie Oh My God and his acting was very average (sadly)… I hope he cuts his time in kpop (I am not sure if it is a good idea from his pov) and take on more projects to improve his skills!


    • intellectualkitten says:

      Yes, I saw that gif on netizenbuzz recently… It was quite embarassing :”D But his acting is not all bad in Oh My God and he was adorable in the heavily scripted Go Fighting Movie, so I haven’t lost all hope on our little sheep ^^


    • intellectualkitten says:

      Humm… a little like Lost Tomb? When I first saw The Lost Tomb’s stills, everyone looked like they were posing in a photoshoot… I hope the drama develop more on the story since the book are quite good 😛


    • intellectualkitten says:

      :”D I know that feeling… sadly a lot of Chinese dramas now days have a great list of celebrities, but lack depth and are very stereotypical…
