A Love Never Lost 人生若如初见 is set against the backdrop of The Boxer Rebellion and stars Li Xian as Liang Xiang, an ambitious and educated noble recently returned from Japan. Chun Xia plays Qiu Hong, a forward-thinking noble lady who is travelling to Shanghai to escape an arranged marriage.(more…)
Mark Zhao, Deng Lun, Wang Ziwen, Chun Xia, and Wang Duo are starring in director Guo Jingming’s latest film series, ancient fantasy Onmyoji 阴阳师, based on the novel series of the same name by Baku Yumemakura. Two films are currently scheduled in the series.(more…)
In a beautiful ad for SK-II, Katie Couric explores Chun Xia and her best friends’ differing expectations for her life plans. The ad is partly in English and partly English subbed.
Actress Chun Xia emotes so well in her photos that I feel like every other photo of her is one photoshop away from a poster for an artsy film. This set of photos is exactly how I pictured the scene where the protagonists go to the science museum in Cry Me a Sad River. She would be perfect if they ever make another film version.
Here are some recent photoshoots of people being cute together, featuring Ma Sichun X Jing Boran, Wu Lei X Chun Xia, Zhang Tian’ai X Huang Zitao, Zhao Wei X Alec Su, Wu Jinyan X Xu Kai, Zhang Yuxi X Kenji Chen, and Zhu Zhiling X Li Gengxi. Which couple has the most chemistry?
Photographer Luo Yang is one of the fastest-rising fashion photographers in the past year, a year with a lot of diverse, young photographers hitting the scene. Her photoshoot with Chun Xia was voted the best fashion magazine cover of year by fans and a panel of professionals, and imo it’s well-deserved. Here are some of her works, including with Ma Sichun, Jiang Wenli, Xiao Wen Ju, Zhong Chuxi, Chun Xia, Chen Feiyu, Li Meng, and Jing Tian.
The rawness captured in her photoshoots bring an unique perspective to the fashion magazine photography scene. I also love how her photoshoots subtly shows Chinese influences without making it in-your-face. It’s a part of what I see as a growing movement by Chinese artists to move away from the bold, explicit cultural elements like in the works of Chen Man. Another recent example is the embroidery Beauty Portraits by Leslie Zhang and Liu Zongyuan.
