A Bite of China Season 3 to air during CNY

“Taste life through food, taste China through film.  A Bite of China returns.”   – Season 3 slogan

Season three of the documentary series that tells the story of China and its people through their food, A Bite of China 舌尖上的中国, has released a trailer. The series will air during the 2018 Chinese New Year to maximize the number of ugly cries they get from those of us who are away from our families.

After a four-year hiatus, the series was revived under a new producer. Like the previous seasons, it’ll feature eight themed episodes, each directed by a different director. Based on the trailer, the most interesting food so far is the fried chrysanthem. Hopefully the new season will live up to the previous two.

夢想家林志穎: 那天给kimi剪完“男生头”,他高兴地摆各种POSE。我说,哇!你现在像爸比一样头发了!kimi说,不是嘢,我是李敏镐!囧……求评鉴:新发型到底像谁?#4700万粉丝礼物#

Remember last week, when Jimmy Lin tried giving Kimi Lin a haircut and thought he’d totally ruined his son’s new hairstyle? Well, turns out things didn’t end so badly after all…

That day I gave Kimi a “boy haircut,” he happily did various poses.
I said, Wow! Now your hair is like Daddy’s!
Kimi said, No, I am Lee Min-ho!
Embarrassed… I ask for an evaluation: Whose hairstyle does his new hairstyle resemble? #gift for reaching 47 million followers#
