We’re going to start a news roundup of all the little bits of news that we don’t have the energy, time, or motivation to make full posts on. I wanted to start one before, but my inherent laziness made it seem like a project doomed to failure; We’re going to try again anyway because now we’re finding it harder to have the energy to make those full posts.
These links were found mostly by idarklight ….which is how it usually goes on behind the scenes of Cfensi. Except for the obvious parts by me, like where I start to whine about lack of Wang Yuexin activities again. WYX…you’re turning me into a whiner.
Yu Siyuan and Biz are back with their new single Zhan Fang, which is making airwaves across China. Unfortunately no link, but here are the lyrics.
Chinese Paladin 3 OST is out. Though the album is a disappointed to most who loved the first OST, Blue Bird Flying Fish may make their lucky break as their song, “Ci Sheng Bu Huan,” was a general favorite. Listent to the OST here.
Also releasing albums recently: Gary Cao, Peggy Hsu, Phoenix Legend, Tan Weiwei, Jerry Yan, and Lollipop. And maybe some artists I’ve forgotten (Don’t hate me!). I’ve linked to youtube accounts where you can listen to the album for some artists.
Mayday‘s DNA MV for their DNA tour is out. Watch it here.
Jane Zhang joins Universal Music. This should be good for her career, but sad to Huayi. Nevertheless, I applaud Huayi’s statement that they “will never change their company to accommodate one person,” something that eeMedia seems to have been doing way too often.
If like us, you almost forgot their existence, revisit man-band Go Go Club as they prepare for an new album. They also have a song in CP3 and belong to Gold Typhoon.
eeMedia stars do a random 60th Anniversary of the PRC photoshoot, with certain members of its company participating, perhaps the ones that will be featured in their upcoming group album with the same theme. Wang Yuexin is not there. I started to panic at first but I’m sure he’ll be fine, being the goal oriented guy that he is. I hope. T_T
Meanwhile if you are also a deprived Wang Yuexin fan (are there any besides me?) listen to him sing a folk song for father’s day here. The song starts at 3:45 , but it’s worth the wait. He does it so, so beautifully. Is there any musical style that this boy can’t do? That is if he were given the opportunity.
Meteor Shower changes its name to Let’s Go Watch Meteor Shower to be more “unique.” They’re currently recording the OST, which features the beautiful voice of Zhang Han singing Lu Hu’s song. Why is everything in this drama going so wrong?
Hunan TV snubs at SARFT by broadcasting the banned Gillian interview anyways, but on the Hong Kong-based global channel, where SARFT has no control.
Hunan also wants to move into movies, and it begun by changing the title of its local “Media Agency” to “Movies and Film Industry”This is not surprising announcement since it has recently invested in several big movies, including Mulan and Bodyguards and Assassins,
An animated series of CJ7 is to begin production. Stephen Chows says he always loved animation.
Liu Ye to get married on July the 5th with French girlfriend. Best men will be Nanking! revisionist director Lu Chuan, and wedding style of choice is traditional (traditional French or traditional Chinese?).
Movie news will be up next as I finish posting on the Shanghai Film Festival.
