The Pavilion – Duan Yihong, Hao Lei, Zu Feng, Wu Yue, Bai Yufan. Nineteen years ago, the Xuan family’s youngest sister is murdered, and the family is splintered. Almost two decades later, the broken family reunites after the oldest brother becomes the suspect of a fresh murder.
Last year’s Light On program gave us two critically successful dramas in The Bad Kids and The Long Night – any guesses as to which dramas will stand out from the pack this year? (My pick is The Pavilion, based on cast performance alone)
iQiyi has released a handful of trailers and posters for its upcoming dramas. The successful Light On programme is back for a second round, and the streaming platform has also lumped its romance dramas into a Sweet On schedule, which is set to begin this month. Which dramas are you looking forward to most?
First up is Luoyang, and the trailer is giving me huge The Longest Day in Chang’an vibes. Huang Xuan‘s character seems pretty similar to Lei Jiayin’s, in that they’re both former government officials who are tasked with solving intriguing mysteries.
Most of the stars that have had or will have shows broadcast on Tencent attended the event. The actresses have my utmost respect today – it’s currently 2 degrees Celsius in Nanjing. Which look do you like best?
This might be the most fun photoshoot of the year. As the host of the upcoming GQ Men of the Year event, Wang Yaoqing spoofed all the 2020 covers. Other than being funnier, there are two covers of his that I unironically like as fashion magazine covers more than the original.
At the beginning of the month many celebrity workshops will put out a tentative schedule to let fans know what they’re up to. Here’s June’s with what film projects everyone’s attached to. Partly due to a pause in filming due to the coronavirus, June is a pretty busy month with almost all A-lister drama actors filming.
Perhaps to celebrate its lead’s 20th birthday, xianxia drama Legend of Awakening released its first video previews today. This includes the MV for the theme song by Wang Sulong (below), as well as previews for the leads on Weibo here.
Chen Feiyu turned down Ever Night 2 for this, so this drama better be worth it.
