ttf

Taiwanese actor Eddie Peng recently graced the cover of Men’s Health, coinciding with the release of his sports movie, To The Fore (破风), which opens in theaters on August 7.

Directed by Dante Lam, To The Fore (which we will refrain from referring to as “Breaking Wind,” which the title can literally translate to) is set in the world of competitive cycling. Newbie bikers Wang Chouming (Eddie Peng) and Qiu Tian (Shawn Dou) find themselves wowed by the talented Korean cyclist Zheng Zhiyuan (Choi Siwon) and agree to sign on as his pacesetters (破风手).

Although the three of them form a perfect team, Wang Chouming and Qiu Tian soon discover that no matter how many races they win together, only Zheng Zhiyuan will be recognized as the official winner. As each of them becomes caught up in their pursuit of victory, they lose their solidarity and their achievements go plummeting. Will their team spirit ever return?

To The Fore features appearances from Wang Luodan and Carlos Chan. Interestingly, its August 7 release is the exact same release date as that of Shawn Dou’s other movie, Time to Love (新步步惊心).

Check out a teaser trailer below, as well as the rest of Eddie’s Men’s Health photoshoot.

“It’s okay if we’re not the leads, we have better photos than everyone who is.”

After the previously scheduled Chinese Paladin 5 flopped, Jiang Jinfu and Victoria Song quickly shifted to Legend of Cocoon Town, a Rotunda series co-starring only the cutest Yang Yang.   The series is directed by Li Shaohong (Dream of the Red Chambers, Da Ming Palace).

Other than Victoria Song, fellow SM’er Choi Siwon is also collaborating with Rotunda in another series, The Millionaire Heirs with Kan Qingzi and Yu Xiaotong . Yep, after years of playing the pouty second female lead to Li Qin and Li Sheng,  Kan Qingzi is finally get her first major lead! Meanwhile, poor Yang Yang is probably still stuck with the second lead. A few more stills below the cut, although they’re generally not very good.
