Qi Wei gorgeous in more For the Holy Guiguzi stills

Now that I think about it, palace life isn’t THAT bad.

More stills have been released for the drama For the Holy Guiguzi.  Starring Duan Yihong, Qi Wei, Zu Feng, etc. , this drama is probably hoping to get out of the backed-up “upcoming Chinese drama artery” and finally be released.  Those looking forward to The Legend of Miyue can probably get a taste of the general time period through this drama, given this drama ends up released before the latter.

All in all, best of luck to this drama and others stuck in the backed-up upcoming Chinese drama artery.  More stills below the cut. (more…)

I’m always super excited when new genres are explored, especially when one with such a great photoshoot and cinematographer.  Han Xue workshop’s latest work, Home of a lady 淑女之家, is based on the mystery novel of the same name by author Ma Yiwei.  Han Xue plays the lead female who, with the help of her friend and amateur detective (Liu Ennuo), enters then Shen family to find out the truth about her father’s death, only to find the new lover (Ma Tianyu) of the head of the household (Cecilia Yip) soon dead. Who could’ve done it? Is it the maid? The sisters? The brother-in-law? The mother? Or even Han Xue’s character herself?
