Posters, stills, photoshoots, and random photos that caught my eye this week.
Photos this week includes Angelababy, Cai Xukun, Liu Haoran, Wu Lei, Bai Jingting, Dilraba, Chen Wenqi, Ouyang Nana, Guan Xiaotong, Zheng Yecheng, Zhang Yunlong, Xu Kai, as well as Bai Lu X Xiao Yan for The Legends, Song Qian X Song Weilong for Love Actually, Chen Feiyu and He Landou for film With You.
Sweet Dreamsstars Dilraba as Ling Lingqi, a girl who is able to enter the dreams of her crush Bo Hai (Deng Lun). She lives vicariously through the romances that play out in Bo Hai’s dreams, and is disappointed when her imaginations don’t match up with reality.
Li Qin did a prettier if less creative botanical photoshoot in the same garden as Yang Caiyu. Meanwhile, birthday girl Dilraba not only went to a garden, but also dressed in florals. Ni Ni and Li Yuchun are decked out in Gucci in a garden in France. Banana Culture trainees and Tang Yan go on picnic, Finally, while not in a garden, Wang Junkai celebrates the last of spring with a kite on a hill.
When you’re hailing a magic carpet on your balcony.
Some pictures of actress Dilraba because she always looks perfect in a crown. She’s taking a break from filming between Sweet Dreams and a new film with Shawn Dou by attending the Dolce & Gabbana show at Milan Fashion Week .
Dilraba is absolutely adorable in this latest trailer for sci-fi rom-com Sweet Dreams 一千零一夜 with Deng Lun. Also, can we talk about how unrealistic it is for Dilraba to be chasing over guys in every single show? In real life, all the men (and women) should be chasing her.
Sweet Dreams 一千零一夜 is an upcoming sci-fi romance drama starring Dilraba as Ling Lingqi(a name which is read the same way as James Bond’s 007 for no special reason), a kind-hearted girl who has a crush on colleague Bo Hai (Deng Lun) but keeps her feelings secret because of her low self-esteem.
Love the costumes and the chemistry, not so much the plot.
With the perfect amount of bright colors and modern silhouettes without looking tacky, The King’s Woman 秦时丽人明月心 first caught my eyes because of its look (and Dilraba). The series is adapted from the prequel to animation Qin’s Moon and retells the attempted assassination of Ying Zheng (Zhang Binbin), the king who’ll eventually become China’s first emperor, by Jing Ke (Liu Chang), modified to become a huge love triangle featuring Gongsun Li (Dilraba).
The series opens with some classic clichés that they work in with mixed ability, including but not limited to having a long-lost childhood true love that you’ve only met once, no one recognizing the female lead is female, accidentally sharing a bed, the rich guy pretending his underling is his superior because we all know relationships that start with lies end well, and one or more lead’s guardian dying, but not before reminding them to hate their romantic interest for their parents’ sins.
Zhang Binbin is surprisingly (to me) the best actor of the bunch, and nails all the romance scenes, be it awkward first meetings, head over heels in love, or possessive creep. Continue reading →
For some reason, many dramas have chosen to go with a poetic seven-character title format, and The King’s Woman秦时丽人明月心 is the latest show to follow suit. Starring Dilraba and ZhangBinbin (costars in Pretty Li Huizhen, TLTWTMPB), the upcoming drama tells of the fictional love story between Concubine Li and China’s first Emperor.
Liehuo Ruge / The Flame’s Daughter / Agni Cantabilehas released its first stylish teaser. Dilraba(Mr Pride vs Miss Prejudice) stars as Lie Ruge, a young woman who gets romantically entangled with Vic Zhou (Z Storm II), Zhang Binbin and Liu Ruilin (TLTWTMPB).
I’m actually surprised at how well all the backgrounds meld together and don’t look out of place.
Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossomshas been gearing up for its January 30th release date. Starring Yang Mi, Mark Zhao, Yu Menglong, Ken Chang, Dilraba, Zhang Binbin, and Gao Weiguang, lots more goodies from the promotion avalanche in the last couple weeks.
