Posters, stills, and photoshoots that caught out eyes this week.(more…)
At the beginning of the month many Chinese celebrity workshops will put out a tentative schedule to let fans know what they’re up to.
Here are selected July schedules with what film and drama projects everyone’s attached to. Like June, July is a pretty busy month with almost all A-lister drama actors filming after the coronavirus hiatus.(more…)
A round-up of a couple of my favorite stages since the last post. If you missed it, XDramaX also did a Sisters Who Make Waves round-up.
A Tim Burton film turned into a stage, Miss Freak is easily my favorite since River. The make-up and costumes, the stage, and the choreography are all perfectly on theme, as is the performance.(more…)

Zhang Yuxi plays younger sister Cheng Ruoyu, while Xuan Lu plays older sister Qiu Yanzhi.(more…)
I’m so excited to see Li Qin playing a kick-ass martial artist / female general in The Song of Glory. Qin Hao plays Liu Yikang (yes, they changed the storyline during filming), the emperor’s brother who later becomes prime minister.
The 53 episode drama releases 2 eps every Wed-Fri on Tencent (subs on Viki).(more…)
Sisters Who Make Waves is a show that relies on the charisma and personality of the big sisters, so I wasn’t too fussed by the shoddy camerawork for the performance stages.

Ju Jingyi is cuter than ever in the trailer for her latest drama, In a Class of Her Own 漂亮书生 with Song Weilong. I feel like this might be the drama with her that has the best (aka least) filters? [Extended Synopsis]
Ju Jingyi might have two dramas streaming at the same time with both this and The Blooms at Ruyi Pavilion releasing promo materials recently.(more…)
