As always, keeping busy.

Weibo Wednesday: September 23, 2015

This is less of a Weibo Wednesday update and more of round-up of a bunch of celebrities who announced they were dating (or in one case, married) and whom we couldn’t bother devoting an entire post to. Let me know if there are any celebrities you’d like an update from, because the Weibosphere has been a little dry lately, tbh.

Chen Xiang Becomes First-Time Director for “We Are Not Wrong”

Chen Xiang in We Are Not Wrong MV

The MV makes it look like the love triangle is Chen Xiang vs. Girl vs. Girl’s Cell Phone.

Singer Chen Xiang recently released the music video for “We Are Not Wrong” (我们都没有错), the fourth track from his Reborn to Sing (破茧而声) album, which was released last year.

Chen Xiang directed the MV himself, marking his first time as a music video director. He was personally involved in writing the screenplay, selecting the filming locations, and deciding on the post-production edits. “I was obviously very nervous, but I was even more excited,” said Chen Xiang. “It’s a great feeling to be able to do what you want to do and reveal what you have sketched out in your mind.”

Chen Xiang as MV director

“[The MV] may not be the best work,” he went on, “but the fact is that it’s a new child that I created with all my passion and diligence. I know I still have a lot of things to learn and improve on. For every single person, the first step is difficult but also beautiful. After taking the first step, you will realize that the steps after are not that difficult.”

Check out the MV for “We Are Not Wrong” below, and if you want to see more of Chen Xiang, make sure to check him out in the currently airing drama Whirlwind Girl (旋风少女)!


Chen Xiang handsome in Whirlwind Girl

DUE, want

Look at this face and tell me why he has no good lead roles yet.

Now that my previous actor bias Yang Yang has finally made it, Chen Xiang is probably replacing him.  Not only is he so pretty, but he really makes every role spark (even BuBuJingQing,  which even A-list actors fail  to make interesting).  His latest role in  Whirlwind Girl with Yang Yang  is yet another completely different role, an aloof heir with revenge and love on his agenda.  More prettiness below the cut.
