Hi, Mom 你好，李焕英 is written and directed by Jia Ling, and stars the comedian as the daughter who travels back to her mother’s generation after the latter’s untimely death. Zhang Xiaofei plays the younger counterpart of Jia Ling’s mother, while Shen Teng and Chen He costar.
The film is an adaption of Jia Ling’s popular skit of the same name, which in turn is based off her own personal experiences. The film is slated to premiere on Chinese New Year’s Day.
I like how the concept teaser for Pride and Price likens signing a contract to an imminent battle where everyone has their own schemes and ideas. Starring Anita Yuen, Song Jia, Chen He, Wang Yaoqing, Wang Longzheng and Song Zu’er, the drama will probably be released this year. [Character Intros]
Pride and Price 盛装 is a glimpse into the lives of the people responsible for a top fashion magazine as they navigate the challenges that come with the digital age. Song Jia and Anita Yuen play editors who hold opposing views regarding the magazine’s future direction.
After a disastrous movie that they themselves poked fun at, sit-com iPartment 5 released its first trailer yesterday. The series brings back leads Lou YIxiao, Li Jiahang, Sun Yizhou, Li Jinming, Chen He, and Liu Mengmeng. The series is set for a 2020 release.
The answer to, what if Men in Black was a miniseries in China?
Millions of years ago, aliens, now known as yaoguai or demons, landed on Earth. To blend in, they hide their animal forms by shapeshifting into humans. Join the cast of alien animals and one lone human vet as they try to regulate the underground alien world in urban fantasy/sci-fi Bureau of Transformers 动物管理局. The series is set in the same world as that of Hanson and the Beast and stars Chen He, Wang Ziwen, Tang Xiaotian, Huang Tianyuan, Kong Songling, Huang Yilin, and Longbin. It premieres today on iQiyi here with two new episodes every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Sniper 瞄准 stars Huang Xuan (Entrepreneurial Age) as Su Wenqian, an agent who plans to assassinate an important figure in the Kuomintang government within 180 hours. Chen He (Mad Ebriety) plays Chi Tiecheng, a Kuomintang assassin and Su Wenqian’s older disciple brother.
No, not those Transformers. More like reverse animorphs. Urban fantasy series Bureau of Transformers has Wang Ziwen and Chen He working for an agency in charge of regulating transformers, or animal-looking aliens aka yaoguai that can also transform into humans. Wang Ziwen is an agent of the agency, while Chen He is a human veterinarian that got roped in . Together they must solve a series of cases while trying to maintain the delicate balance between the human and transformer worlds. The series is a spin-off of Hanson and the Beast, which I thought had a great premise that deserves to be flushed out more.
