Announcement: Hey, Cfensi sponsors time travel now!

What was happening around 6 years ago, in September? Yang Yun and Yang Wei were getting engaged/married, China’s Modern Sky Festival was in Beijing and not coming to New York (October 4-5, 2014 if you remember), Ugly Wudi had yet to come out, Painted Skin came out on the 25th, on and on and – oh, yeah, and Cfensi started to publish posts on this WordPress website!

So here’s an anniversary present! (We’re actually ~4 days late, but…you and I both don’t want to wait until Christmas or Chinese New Years~) Cfensi now features a “Time Portal” tab – take a look here, and you’ll find a catalogue (by time era, ie: Qin, Han, etc) of the Chinese dramas we’ve posted on since we came back to WordPress in late August/early September, 2012. We’re trying to incorporate some type of video link for each project, so if you find one for a drama or movie we haven’t listed yet, please leave a note to make our jobs easier! Of course, also feel free to leave other suggestions and feedback.

End of the Year survey / Liebster

Do you know why we are “Cfensi”?

We’re a little late with our Liebster Award answers, but first we’d like to thank heisui for her nomination, as well as her continuing support of Cfensi. Not only is she an amazing contributor to the drama blogosphere, she always makes an effort to comment on our posts, plug our Photoshoot Fridays, and share her Legend of Zhen Huan expertise. We greatly appreciate you~ ♥

Unfortunately, not all of our writers were available to answer, but we hope you enjoy the responses from those who could.

A full roster of the writers for our site this year would be idarklight, Jo, Loryy_G, Benji, Bumbleberri, cloudandsea, emsterz (who was already tagged by hesui. You can find her blog here), and 0kuo0 (by the order we started writing for Cfensi)~ Continue reading

Announcement: Cfensi writers on vacation

Liang Jing looks like she’s having fun – wait for Friday to see the rest of her shoot in our weekly round up.

I hope that you have come to enjoy the new weeklies as much as I have (Weibo Wednesday? Music Monday? Kudos to Jo and SJZGloria for their excellent posts!). However, our writers are rather busy this summer (winter, if you’re in the Southern hemisphere!) – and unlike Liang Jing in our feature post, they are not lounging at the beach. Photoshoot Friday will still be regularly posted, but Music Monday and Weibo Wednesday will be somewhat irregular.

We are also introducing a new weekly, Translation Tuesday. At the moment there is nothing in particular we want to translate (feel free to offer novel suggestions in the comments!), but readers can leave comments with each post for song translation requests. (Feel free to leave suggestions in the comments for this post, even).

Poll: Which production would you be interested in a recap of? (updated with descriptions)

Two modern, two ancient, and one in between (sort of.)

Which production (if any) would you guys be interested in a recap of? The options listed in the poll below are mostly movies (Double Exposure, Caught in the Web, Painted Skin II, The Assassins, Tai-Chi Zero…), but if there’s a particular drama you’re interested in, leave a comment and we’ll put that into consideration. (Just note that dramas are a lot more subject to my whims than movies are.) Descriptions of the movies have been added below the poll.

New Theme

Love? Hate? I really love the feature slide on top. I also added sharing buttons at the bottom of each article (Facebok, Twitter, Tumblr ect.) What do you guys think? If people really dislike this I’ll change it back on Sunday…
