Chen Xiao, Wang Ziwen’s medical procedural drama releases trailer

Wang Ziwen, Chen Xiao, and Jia Qing’s medical procedural drama Healer of Children 了不起的儿科医生 released its first trailer yesterday. Chen Xiao seems way too young to look like he was a doctor when Wang Ziwen was still a child, but that seems to be what the trailer implies?

The series is directed by Yang Lei (Stairway to Stardom,The Red) and written by Wang Huan (Kill Mobile) and Weng Haixin (A Simple Hero). No news on airing dates yet.

Best of National Treasure Performances

This Tang dynasty relief come to life under Song Jia and co. as they sing of a better life.

Using star power, original songs, and innovative stage performances, variety show National Treasure 国家宝藏 has made artifacts and museums come to life to the audience. A round-up of the best song and dance numbers, with performances from Chen Xiao, Song Jia, Purba Rgyal,   Zhai Tianlin, and Wu Tong.  Embedded videos are set to where the performance starts.

Students from the Beijing Dance Academy perform a dance that perfectly encapsulates the youthful playfulness and grace of young scholars.  Watch the viral practice room version here. If you like this style, I also recommend Zhao Lei, Yan Xujia, and Guo Zifan’s performance of  West Chamber here. I want a boyband with this style of performances.
