Spring is coming, it’s the perfect time to fall in love with this new set of much chirpier photoshoot from Stay With Me. This set of posters actually has nothing to do with Easter other than the pastels, but happy Easter to those of you who celebrate it!

Btw, the script is confirmed to be by Xu Ziyuan (WuXin: Monster Killer, yay!)  and Qian Jingjing (Destined to Love You and Cage of Love, urgh) .

Also, the cast will be filming in Paris next week.They’re looking for a male to read Oscar Wilde, some extras of Chinese origin, and Caucasian male thugs if you’re interested.

Chemistry off-screen, too!
I can’t decide if this is super adorable, if he’s trying to strangle her, or if she’s using his arm as a pull-up bar.

Joe Chen, Wang Kai love and torment in new posters

 What kind of fashion designer would chose murder by stabbing? Think of the clothes that would get ruined!
Is it an issue that I  already ship this on-screen pair from the photoshoot video alone?

Chen Qiao’en and Wang Kai look stunning in the first posters for Stay With Me 放弃我抓紧我 that actually feature the two together.   We’re already seeing tons of chemistry between the leads from behind-the-scenes. This photoshoot was done the first day the actors met, and all that was going through my head for the second half of the video was “kiss already!”

Wang Kai, Joe Chen, Joe Cheng, Bosco Wong hit the runway for new fashion drama

catchme
If we  replace Joe Cheng with someone from Macau, we would get a happy Greater China family.
  1. Joe Chen and Joe Cheng are finally collaborating! Cfensi gold stars for every time you catch us mixing their names.
  2. Leave Me, Catch Me 放弃我抓紧我 features Joe Chen as a fashion designer who all of a sudden lost her memories after the age of 23, is now engaged  a man who she doesn’t know, and competitors with the man who she thought was her boyfriend.  Can she rebuild her life and find her lost dreams?  The male cast includes Wang Kai, Bosco Wong, and Joe Cheng.
  3. Filming begins next month in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Milan, and Paris.  OMG Wang Kai in Paris in those gorgeous winter coats!  I’m going to be thinking about Ming Cheng’s college days during all those scenes.  Can we please have a scene where the girl leaves him so he runs out and then kneels in the snow while wearing only a white shirt?  I’m probably expecting too much …
  4. The drama has already been picked up by Sohu, so we won’t have to worry about death-in-the-storage-room .  The drama is produced by Tonghua (BuBuJingxin, Cloud Song, Desert Melody) of Dream Stardom  (Perfect Couple, Destined to Love You )   (more…)

Hawick Lau sings for The Cage of Love

The cat's face.
Garfield in a spiffy new grey outfit steals the show.

Zheng Shuang, Hawick Lau, and Li Dongxue‘s Republican drama Cage of Love begins airing on May 26th, and has released the ending and opening themes and respective MV’s.   As the Dream Stardom Film and TV Culture Co.’s  second project following Perfect Couple 金玉满堂, I expect the first half to be hilarious and adorable, and the second half to be depressing.  See you in the first half!
