Update:Hunan TV Will Put On a new season of 快乐男声 aka Superboys next year.
This post has officially become a celebration post
Superboys musical picspam behind the cut. Click and be amazed at the festivity, the wonder, the number of straight(?) guys dancing together, awesome t-shirts and “the girl with braids”. Also, some more information about Hunan’s New Meteor Garden/Hana Yori Dango.
Pictures have surfaced of the movie “Le Huo Nan Hai” (maybe I should start calling it this?) movie, or what I like to call the Superboys Musical, where most of the boys are at the beach together dancing and singing, that reminds me so much of High School Musical. HSM is of course, insanely popular in Asia as it is in the entire world I believe. Maybe this movie, as silly as its premise is, can tap into the musical niche in China. Let’s see if fangirl power in China can propell this movie to the top.
I’m a bit in love with Hunan TV like all the other Chinese netizens out there. CCTV is losing money despite/due to lots of funding to do their big-bugeted historical dramas and their feel-good boring dramas with morals (think Han Geng’s Stage of Youth), and bad marketing skills. For CCTV/SARFT it’s not about if the movie/series is fun to watch, it’s about if it has good moral character, etc. Thus SARFT makes directors edit and CCTV will show tv series an episode per day until it’s over. It’s quite bad decision-making. But Hunan TV is different, it’s out to make money, and it knows how to. It also has all the silliness that I could hope for without the overbearing restraint. I don’t understand why the entertainment world can’t just go out and make money. China’s one of the most capitalist places in the world. How can you fail so bad at capitalism in the entertainment market?
Oh and check this out, one of the female cast members that no one knows but has a awesome t-shirt, that would have went well with my last picspam on this movie, wherein I talked about the female shortage in China.
Oh, and this girl. She is so unique looking. A long time ago, well not that long, I wanted hair like hers.
And she’s tight with Wang Yuexin!
More on her from here. It reads like a people article on how supporting cast members and their interactions with their more famous costars, which is kind of cute. It says basically that she’s a great addition to the cast and Wang Yuexin says he wouldn’t like to compare strength with her.
Alright, ending my rambling. Tell me if you don’t like my Le Huo Nan Hai picspam posts, because considering how far away the premiere date is, there’ll probably be many more like these.
