An award show? How unexpected at this time of the year! Anyhow, some of our favorites went to the ceremony so I am happy. SUPER long post today. There are lots of new stills for various projects such as Old Nine Gates, My Sassy Girl, Demon Girl, Ode to Gallantry. Also, there are some new casting news for both dramas and variety shows. Enjoy ^^
First and foremost, it is the 92th birthday of Chinese legend Jin Yong. He is the genius behind most hit wuxia stories including Tian Long Ba Bu, Ode to Gallantry, Condor Trilogy, etc. Congratulations!! Hope we will have some good adaptations of his work to make him and the fans celebrate 😉 Here is an amazing MV collage using scenes from his works. THE FEELS

Be prepared for an overload of names @_@ Since these are rumored castings, I won’t tag the names to the post…
Hope nobody was holding their breath based on the cast I announced for Up Idol season 2 cast. I previously announced a line-up that includes the it boys of the moment such as Sheng Yilun as Sina previously reported that they want to do a male line-up this time. However, I just read another post saying that the season 2 will have a similar line-up as season 1, with Zhao Liying, Ada Choi, Zhang Hanyun, Ouyang Nana, Yang Yuying, Ni Jing, Yang Lele and Liu Tao. So hum, I am confused since the two line-up is so different! @_@ Either way, I will definitely check out the new season so I will keep an eye on it and write an official post when they officialise it.
On another note, Hunan is also busy preparing for a whole new season for Run for Time. The names mentionned so far are Liang Tian, Deng Ziqi, Xie Yilin, Ma Su, Wu Xin, Xue Zhiqian, Yue Yunpeng, Sa Beining, Zhang Ruoyun, Bao Bei’Er, Wang Zulam, Zhang Tian Ai, Wang Jia Er, and Yang Lele. They are also trying to court Li Yifeng and Yang Mi.
