Even though it’s been three weeks since our last round-up, there’s not much to report from the Weibo front. I guess all of our favorite celebs have been too busy having fun during the Chinese New Year and Lantern Festival to waste time on Weibo… which is how the holidays should be spent, amirite?
Anyway, for those of you wondering whether or not you’re a famous Chinese celebrity, here’s an easy litmus test: turn on the TV during the Chinese New Year season and see if you see yourself on the screen. If yes, you’re probably famous, like Vicki Zhao Wei, whose Princess Returning Pearl (还珠格格) has been a Hunan TV staple since it originally aired in 1998. This is reportedly the 15th time the channel has rerun the series.
Can I say that I was startled when I turned on the TV? Very amused this holiday
Her Princess Returning Pearl costar Alec Su also joined in on the fun. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get over how cute he was back then!
Dad, have a good New Year! Dad, remember to wash your feet!
In case those two examples aren’t enough, here we have Wang Leehom doing more or less the same thing. (Except he wasn’t in Princess Returning Pearl, thank goodness. I don’t want to imagine him bald.)
Turned on the TV today and suddenly discovered that My Lucky Star is spending the New Year with everyone! Has everyone seen it? This movie really is suitable for the New Year!
In cute family news, Tian Liang shared about daughter Cindy Tian Yucheng‘s standards for her future boyfriend. Zhang Tiantian, take note!
The day we pieced together the building blocks, Cindy asked me a serious question: Who liked who first, Dad or Mom?
I replied: Should be at the same time.
She then said: You liked her and she agreed, she liked you and you agreed, and then you got married?
Secretly delighted that my daughter could rush to answer a question, I said, Yes, yes, and then asked her: Do you think Mom made the right choice?
Daughter: She did. When I grow up, I want to find one of your friends to be my boyfriend.
Daughter, your criteria are so strange. You meant to say you want to find someone who is like me, right?
And winning the award for random post of this round-up, here is Chen Xiang poking fun at a common Asians-taking-photographs problem.
Every time I’m in a photo, I will deliberately shrink my eyes so I seem more like an earthling. This new year, I will be my true self. Actually, my real face looks like this. The one I’m holding is my master on earth.
No photo for this last one, but it’s about Cruel Romance (锦绣缘·华丽冒险) and is cute, so I’m including it. (Keep in mind that Huang Xiaoming‘s studio was one of the investors for the drama, trololol.)
Huang Xiaoming: This drama satisfied Chen Qiao’en’s wish of being in a “nouveau riche” cast and being able to eat two packed meals each time.
Chen Qiao’en: And also my wish of eating many cakes.
Omg, Chen Xiang scared me for a minute.
I’ve missed Weibo Wednesday’s!
By the way, I was wondering if you know when the c-drama Detectives and Doctors 陆小凤与花满楼 will start airing?
As usual, there isn’t an official release date *sigh*, but I’ve seen “summer 2014” floating around on its Tieba.
Aw darn it. I heard somewhere it would air this February so I was looking for it. No wonder I couldn’t find it, heh.
Did anyone ever else ever think that Ertai (Julian Chan) was played by Leslie Cheung? … I thought they were the same person for the longest time.
Cindy looks so much like her dad in this picture.~
This reminds me of this set of photos XD
wow, Grandpa Tian Liang still looks so young!
You don’t even need to face swap this time…
If it weren’t for how tall Tiantian is, I feel like I would start suspecting there’s something going on between Kou Jing and Tian Liang …
any news on wallace huo or ruby lin?
Wallace Huo just finished filming a late-Qing series last week. Posters here:
Lin Xinru’s on vacation? I haven’t heard about any new dramas from her since she finished Long Ballad.
