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#

“Bu Bu Jing Qing” to Air on April 22nd

“Neither time nor tide can keep us apart, be it in another world,” aka the regular state of mind of drama fangirls.

Fangirls (and fanboys) rejoice! Bu Bu Jing Qing (步步惊情), the long-awaited sequel to the 2011 time-traveling drama Bu Bu Jing Xin (步步惊心), has an official broadcast date — April 22nd, which is in just a little more than a month!

On March 18th, Zhejiang TV reported on Weibo that Bu Bu Jing Qing would have an exclusive showing at the station’s China Blue Theater (中国蓝剧场). Sina Entertainment then contacted an insider and received confirmation that the series would begin airing on April 22nd.

Interestingly enough, Bu Bu Jing Qing will be broadcast on Zhejiang TV, instead of on Hunan TV like its predecessor. Earlier this month, netizens began buzzing over rumors that Hunan TV would begin airing Bu Bu Jing Qing on March 9th, but the news turned out to be untrue.

Known as the drama that brought Nicky Wu and Liu Shishi together, Bu Bu Jing Xin will see a reunion of the real-life and on-screen couple in the modern-day Bu Bu Jing Qing. The upcoming series also features returning cast members Ye Zuxin, Annie Liu, and Damian Lau, along with new cast members Sun Yizhou, Jiang Jinfu, and Chen Xiang.


New MV for Bu Bu Jing Qing’s other love triangle

If she can’t have a prince in this life, well, being a princess herself isn’t too bad either.

How often do you see an official music video dedicated to the “other” love triangle? Recently, the “wrongful love” MV version of the Bu Bu Jing Qing theme song “Dust 尘埃” was released, featuring the love triangle between 8th prince stand-in Sun Yizhou, Liu Shishi, and Annie Liu. (No sweat, Nicky Wu, you’ve got the girl in real life!) The synopsis can be found here, and more stills in other Bu Bu Jing Qing posts we’ve written. 

I guess if you pretend Sun Yizhou’s face is Kevin Cheung’s, you could pretend…actually you can’t, Annie’s here too.

Some more silliness, but also a solemn farewell, behind the cut.

A 54-foot-tall inflatable duck arrived in Hong Kong earlier this month, though it unfortunately had to be deflated after a while due to strong winds. It’s all JJ Lin‘s fault.

林俊杰: 對不起,我不是故意嚇你的

I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you

Ah well, at least he put up this really cute post to celebrate Mother’s Day:

Liu Shishi Shows Off Pixie Cut for “Bu Bu Jing Qing”

After seeing the character posters and trailer for Tangren’s Bu Bu Jing Qing (步步惊情), the upcoming modern-era sequel to time-traveling drama Bu Bu Jing Xin, a lot of people’s first reactions were “What on earth happened to Liu Shishi!?” Because leading lady Liu Shishi, who had previously won over viewers with her lively and youthful depiction of Maertai Ruoxi, looked so ridiculously drab with her pale coloring and matronly hairstyle.

Fortunately, the media was recently allowed to visit the set and shared some photos of Liu Shishi sporting a sharp and cute pixie cut, a welcome change from the lifeless hairstyle she had before. Since Liu Shishi will be playing twin sisters in Bu Bu Jing Qing, I’m guessing this is how the two characters will be differentiated. I’ve never imagined Shishi having short hair, but I think she looks good! At least she no longer looks the same age as male lead Nicky Wu (who is 17 years her senior, but looks young for his age).

Check out some more photos of Shishi, Nicky, Jiang Jinfu, Damian Lau, and Sun Yizhou.
