Legend of the Dragon Pearl: The Indistinguishable Road 龙珠传奇之无间道 has released character posters. Starring Yang Zi, Qin Junjie, Mao Zijun, Shu Chang, He Zhonghua, and Zhang Na, I’m a bit disappointed with these posters but hopefully, better materials will be released in the future.

Shishi is the perfect choice for the heroine, though I do wish she would try more challenging roles.
Liu Shishi (Precious Youth) has returned to her historical drama roots after a two year break, during which she filmed republican drama Battle at Dawn 黎明决战 and modern romance drama If We Could Love Like This 如果可以这样爱. This time Shishi will be pairing up with up-and-comer William Chan (The Mystic Nine) for Drunken Exquisiteness 醉玲珑.
This week, we look at more Eastern Han Dynasty hanfu through pictures from Sinan Ge Hanfu‘s (Compass Pavilion Hanfu) 司南閣漢服 weibo.
Just going to make a note here that sometimes, clothing styles persist in different eras and groups go on a limb and do things like be creative or combine elements from different eras. Therefore, every now and again, some clothes get kind of hard to classify into a time period and we are left to rely on factors like fabric choice, style of the sleeves, make-up, adornments, etc. to guesstimate a time period. That being said, not everything we assign may be completely correct despite how much we try. Hanfu from this weibo are in the category that I would say are a bit more “creative” and tend to be a bit hard to classify so I am putting them in the period they would probably fit most closely in although some variance and arguments are probably possible for other periods.
