Chen Yao chases after Yang Le in So Young


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.

Son of Hero releases character stills

Come to think of it, Gao Yunxiang really has a thing for playing the “manly man archetype” from Palace: The Lost Daughter to Ban Shu Legend to Legend of Miyue.

Son of Hero, starring Gao Yunxiang, has released more character stills.  It makes sense that the costuming shouldn’t be too ornamental given that this should be centered on war and the Song dynasty military.

Those with a liking for Yang Rong and an allergy to Yu Zheng may find this more palatable.

Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace drums up excitement

OMG just stick to the more literal translation of the title on this one…

Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace (Ruyi Zhuan, The Legend of Ruyi, or the sequel to the Legend of Zhen Huan or Empresses in the Palace) is trying to drum up interest while it seems to be preparing for production.  There are various names being thrown around at this point but what seems more certain is that  Zhou Xun will be a part of this production.  Let’s hope the original author and production team can come together to make something amazing again.

Note:  We apologize for constantly posting and removing this one in the last couple hours since there was confusion about who is actually going to be in it.  We decided to settle for this version.

Antique stills for The Legend of Miyue

We haven’t seen much of this costume in released materials so it goes on top. :)

The Legend of Miyue has released antique stills for Sun Li.  Starring Liu Tao, Huang Xuan, Jiang Xin, Ma Su, Gao Yunxiang, Alex Fong, etc., more eye-candy for those who are keeping up with this new hot commodity (also because they are pretty and I lack self-control).
