JUNE 18, 2012 | POSTED IN PHOTOSHOOT, TAGGED JING BORAN, LI QUAN, MARK ZHAO, TIAN YUAN, ZHOU DONGYU, ZHOU XUN
It turns out that Sun Li wasn’t the only artist who featured in Elle’s July “water” issue. Other artists also joined the cause to promote water conservation, each artist expressing one aspect of water. Adorable sisters Wanda and the incredibly poetic Linda Li are featured above; Zhou Dongyu and Zhou Xun showed off how pretty rain is. Courtesy of Mark Zhao and Tan Yuanyuan, we were reminded of how essential water is to maintaining good hygiene. Jing Boran, is your secret to such nice looking skin drinking lots of water? Li Quan and Tian Yuan chose to enjoy the simple pleasures that water can bring, while sculptor Xiang Jing expressed the other emotional side of water, tears. Synchronized swimmer Tian Tingting was quite at home as she submerged herself in the water.
Linda Li was able to quote this phrase from Tao Te Ching on the spot (how many eleven year olds do you know who can do that?) – “The supreme good is like water, which nourishes all things without trying to. It is content with the low places that people disdain.” (Translation by Steven Mitchell)

eeMedia = pop company? Think again. Pushing the envelope with topics like condoms and school violence, eeMedia is taking full advantage of the so-far restriction-free microfilm industry.
Following the condom microfilm, eeMedia joins hands with director Zhou Nan for another edgy mini-movie that completes eeMedia’s new hardcore image set by its mostly rock-related albums out so far this year.
FREAKOUT 爆走, Part 1 of eeMedia’s microfilm series Adolescent Diaries starring Liu Xin (girl), Wang Yuexin, Chen Xiang, Xu Wei, and DL Group was released on Sohu. Wang Yuexin plays a student who’ve just recently returned from jail (I wonder if he got the role because of his crew cut or if he got the crew cut for this role) for a supposed assault, while Liu Xin plays his best friend who’s been waiting for his return. Yet what landed him in jail three years ago isn’t gone, and when his little sister (Xu Wei) receives a threat, the class mobilizes to defend themselves. Chen Xiang plays Wang Yuexin’s foil, a model student and the class president who’s determined to keep his vow of protecting his classmates .
Wang Yuexin’s new song of the same name is also featured in this episode. Joining Zhou Nan is director Chen Yifu, who has previously worked with Zhou Nan on microfilm Miejue in Love.
