Park Hae-jin, Li Fei’er, Wu Lei form a family in Faraway Love

Baby Wu Lei!
The tragedy of a baby Wu Lei in puberty is that he grows up so fast.

If you wanted to catch up on baby Wu Lei, Faraway Love 远得要命的爱情 is your chance!  Li Fei’er plays a single parent who all of a sudden finds love with a CEO (Park Hae-jin)  and an old classmate (model Zhang Lunshuo).    Wu Lei plays the sweetheart son who can sometimes be angsty. The series was filmed back in 2013 but is only airing now. Oh, how he’s grown.  Also, the female antagonist is Song Yi.

Tsui Hark returns to wuxia

Tsui Hark, show them how it’s done!!

The Third Master’s Sword 三少爷的剑 (I am sure they will have a better English title sometime soon) has released a teaser, marking Tsui Hark‘s return to the wuxia genre.  Starring Lin Gengxin, Peter Ho, Jiang Yiyan, Jiang Mengjie, and Ren Qingan, this seems to be based on the novel by Gu Long.

Weddings aglore in Azure Hill

The mysterious town near Azure Hills, where no wedding ever works out, and the Lantern Festival occurs every other day.

Tang Yixin, Wang Kai, Jin Chen, Xiaocaiqi, Yao Yixin, Zhai Tianlin and Mike Angelo are only some of the people (foxes) getting married in the currently-airing Foxes of Azure Hill/Legend of Qing Qiu Fox.

So far, I would say the three chapters are in reverse order of quality.  Xiaocaiqi and Fu Xinbo make a surprisingly cute pair in probably the best-written chapter so far, Jiang Kaitong and Zhai Tianlin pull off the over-the-top story with their natural cuteness (although his dubber is the worst), while Chen Yao is the only redeeming feature of chapter 1.

Chen Yao chases after Yang Le in So Young

704_1818837_198387
When people like Chen Yao and Dilireba always play the one who relentlessly chases after some completely unmoved guy, you begin to question what’s wrong with the male race.

Chen Yao, Yang Le, Ma Ke, and Cai Jingwen tackle on Yang Zishan, Mark Zhao, and Han Geng  in  the much brighter(literally) and younger TV adaptation of So Young 致青春.  I’m a fan of both leads, and the trailer actually looks like a lot more fun than the film. No news on broadcasting yet.
