Trailers and stills have been released for the movie version of Cry Me A Sad River 悲伤逆流成河. Unlike the drama version, the film seems like it’s going to be a relatively faithful adaption of Guo Jingming’s source novel, which delves into bullying/peer victimisation, rape, teen pregnancy, and suicide. The movie has cast completely new actors Zhao Yingbo, Ren Min, Xin Yunlai, Zhang Ruonan and Zhu Danni as leads.

The lyrics by Wu Tsing-Fong of Sodagreen for Rocket Girls’ third single Light (second from their EP) is heartfelt and shines with his unique combination of childhood wonder and empowerment, and the arrangement of the girls’ voices is stunning Someone said it reminded them of classic SHE songs and that’s how I feel.

Will Zhu Yilong continues his bromance journey in this series?
Zhu Yilong and An Yuexi’s new drama, Promising you a fleeting and dreamlike life 许你浮生若梦 , began streaming on Youtube here on the 13th.
The series so far is kind of similar to Zhu Yilong’s Love for Three Lifetimes – basically the female lead and the supporting male lead are totally in love, but Zhu Yilong’s playboy character also likes her and continues to harass her. Except this time he’s not married to the female lead and he is best friends with her lover. I hear that the supporting male lead will turn out to be a horrible person later, so that may redeem Zhu Yilong’s character eventually, but so far I’m not buying it. An Yuexi and Zhu Yilong, along with supporting leads Zhu Jianran and Madina Yalqun are all really cute in this, though.
Soundtrack: Theme by An Yuexi ft Zhu Yilong ; Ask Oneself by 12th ; Together for the fleeting life by Shao Yuan
