For those of you who celebrate it, Merry Christmas! For those of you who don’t… have Wang Leehom in a Santa costume.
The reindeer all went on vacation, living Santa Claus to sit on a plane to Ji’nan all by himself!
Some more silliness, but also a solemn farewell, behind the cut.
Leehom was recently in New York, not only getting married but also hanging out with the guys from Wong Fu Productions. For those who don’t know, Greg… I mean Leehom… used to be one of the original Wong Fu members. *cough* They also previously collaborated for Leehom’s “Still in Love With You” (依然愛你) MV.
In New York filming a mini-movie, collaborating again with @Wong Fu!
Watch the short below with English subs, thanks to Amanda! ♥
If you remember RTA Youth, you may be saddened to learn that they’ve disbanded. Three of the four members took to Weibo to announce the end of their contract. We wish them the best with their future endeavors!
Liu Junlin: The ending is simple; contract’s over, RTA separated. Thanks to the company for three years of taking care of me, and thanks to Zhang Peipei for the chance to do this, and thanks to the amazing fans who’s accompanied us throughout the journey. I broke out the news because life must continue, work must continue. No matter what changes in the future, I’ll continue my dreams, and my attitude toward music won’t change in this lifetime!
Zhu Yuanbing: Not being able to continue the contract was expected so we’ve simply been waiting for a statement. Still, I’m thankful for having you, thankful for the beauty of youth, the blue skies of dreams. I’m wating for us to meet again. Love won’t change, we’re our dream-chasing youths.
Xu Hao: The journey’s still continuing, the heart’s still here, the dream is still racing.. Facing the lack of choice, I won’t fight. I’ll respect thechoice and let my self be stronger! The story of this page may be beautiful, but no need to dwell, for next page will be a new beginning with the story continued and the cast the same. This is just the beginning, we’ll continue the walk together!.
But in happy reunion news, Vicki Zhao Wei and Alec Su, of Huan Zhu Ge Ge (还珠格格) fame, lit up televisions again serving as judges for Season Five of China’s Got Talent (中国达人秀). Fellow judge Liu Ye is in the photo too, trying not to fall into Third Wheel territory.
Happy life as judges, with my little partners. Am I pretty?
In case you’ve ever wanted to see Peter Ho picking his nose, here you go. He’s making a pun because NBA star Kobe Bryant (who recently returned to his team after recovering from an injury) has a name that kind of sounds like “pick your nose” in Chinese. Peter is currently filming Fu Rongjin (芙蓉锦), hence the uniform, alongside Yuan Shanshan and Eric Huang.
“Hello? What? Kou bi? Kou bi? Oh! Turns out it was Kobe Bryant is back! Then of course I have to cockily show off my Kobe sneakers, which were limited to a 600-pair release in China, to welcome his return!”
Ivy Chen doing her favorite thing, handstands, with Chen Bolin! Ivy looks like she’s having the time of her life, whereas Bolin looks like he’s in pain, lol. Their movie Campus Confidential (爱情无全顺) opened in theaters on December 6th. Anyone get a chance to watch it?
Wu Quanshun, Liang Xiaoqi… the art of backwards reflection
Hooray for wire-fu! Unfortunately, director Lee Tat Chiu, who’s helming The Condor Heroes (神雕侠侣), wasn’t able to work up enough qing gong to join Chen Xiao, Michelle Chen, and whoever the other actor is in the air.
Only I was too heavy to be lifted up @Chen Xiao
The Condor Heroes cast joins some of our favorite Jin Yong-ruiners, including Mao Xiaotong from the currently airing Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils (天龙八部) and Yuan Shanshan of Swordsman (笑傲江湖). They all look adorable here, though.
Merry Christmas! So happy during Christmas eve. @Yu Zheng @ Yuan Shanshan @Michelle Chen @Peter Ho @Mao Xiaotong @Chen Xiao
While they’re having fun, Wang Shiling also takes a break from preparing for her first big concert, where she’ll be playing a duet with Li Yundi at his upcoming concert.
Merry Christmas from Hong Kong!
If you thought Despicable Me 2 was cute, imagine it with Cindy Tian Yucheng‘s voice! Tian Liang and Ye Yiqian accompanied Cindy on a family vacation to LA as Cindy recorded the voice of Agnes in the Chinese dub.
“Despicable Me 2” is finally coming! We were lucky to play with the despicable yet adorable minions in Los Angeles. Even dad wants to bring them home, not to mention Cindy! Once she say the minions, my daughter quickly forgot about the roe deers. Thank goodness, I’ve been worried about how to get a deer …
Raise your hand if you think Jones Xu should join the next season of Where Are We Going? Dad (爸爸去哪儿). Too bad he doesn’t have any kids of his own… but that’s what other people’s kids are for, right?
An ordinary Christmas Eve. Happy Christmas Eve, friends! Thank you everyone for your support.
