Request

Since I suck at photoshop, and want a header using a picture that is too small for just simple cropping…I was wondering if anyone could make me one? Two actually? One I want to use until December and one I plan to use more permanently? I like Chen Kun’s eyes and all, but it’s getting to be a little much.

In return, I’ll make special post when this site hit count reaches 10,000 (to give myself time to make the post basically).

Oh, and since I don’t want to make a separate post, let me link to this, all the gymnastics boys going to San Ya with boxes and boxes of wine to prepare for Yang Wei and Yang Yun’s wedding. Looks like it’s going to be a doozy. Zou Kai, the youngest said that their duty was to help polish off the liqour for Yang Wei.

Fit Lover Movie Theme MV

It looks like Deng Chao is the main lead. Congrats…out of 12 actors, that’s quite an accomplishment. They made the right choice in picking the charismatic Karena Lam as the lead. I’m watching this, and I don’t hate her. Sorry that the audio quality is not so good on the video. It’s actually quite a pretty song. Under the cut.

Using the “Superboys”.

I’ll update this post and this site with more details as I get them.

I was always wondering if mainland China would film its own Hana Yori Dango. If you follow mainland Chinese television, you quickly come to find that there are the state-wide CCTV productions, which like expensive big-budget series with casts that attended drama universities, etc and then there are the provincial productions like Hunan TV who don’t get quite as much money, but don’t have the restraints CCTV does, about providing moralistic drama with meaning, etc. If China were to have a large amount of meaningless idol dramas, they would come from these local, provincial level stations. So here we are, at the possibility of Hunan remaking Meteor Garden using their “Superboys” aka “Kuai Le Nan Sheng” (the Chinese American Idol-type series for those of you who don’t get my constant references to this).

Kimi dances a bit slutty at his Shanghai Concert

It seems like there are always concerts in China. I guess if you have the venues, and the population, then you might as well take advantage of it. So I could be covering a lot of recent concerts, but I guess I’m going to pick and choose. I don’t know how many of you know Kimi, aka Qiao Renliang but I’ve been looking forward to seeing what he had to offer at his first solo concert since he has a fantastic stage presence, and while China has rock, I don’t think that many bands are punk rock like he is. But I don’t know, this is a bit sluttier than I thought his stage presence would be. (more…)

What exactly is Takeshi Kaneshiro?

Yes, he is good-looking and he is an incredibly charismatic actor, but that’s not what I’m talking about. A commenter brought up an interesting tidbit, which is that Takeshi Kaneshiro (or in Chinese, Jingcheng Wu) is no longer nominated for the Taiwanese Filmmaker of the Year at the Golden Horse awards (In this instance, filmmaker means in general, not director if confused) because he does not hold a Taiwanese passport, but rather a Japanese one. As a Japanese citizen, despite growing up in Taiwan and making mostly Chinese-language films, he is not simply not eligible. Talking about ethnicities and nationalities and trying to somehow make sense of the two is tricky enough when you’re of Chinese heritage, but if you’ve got other Asian blood in the mix, then it’s downright frustratingly confusing.

Well, maybe just a little. As much as he usually does anyway.
