Republican Era dramas The Love Never Lost, The National Southwest Associated University and Us release stills

The National Southwest Associated University and Us – Wang Hedi

Two upcoming late-Republican/Pre-revolution dramas, The National Southwest Associated University and Us with Wang Hedi and Zhou Ye, and A Love Never Lost with Li Xian and Chun Xia, have both recently released stills.

It’s pretty rare to use popular young actors for this period, but the casting for both seem spot-on . Wang Hedi and Zhou Ye look perfect for the wide-eyed university students of the era, and Li Xian and Chun Xia are both very solid actors who can blend flawlessly into the era. Plus, this is Hong Kong Film Awards Best Actress Chun Xia’s first leading drama role, so I’m actually really interested in the two projects. Whose stills makes you want to watch their dramas?

Celebrity Schedules: Feb 2020 / Coronavirus Donation List

All dramas have ceased filming and work is sparse, so I’m going to use this opportunity to highlight the following celebrities for donating to efforts to contain the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. I know there’s a lot of uncertainties about whether donations are being properly used, but that doesn’t diminish the goodwill of the donators. If you chose to donate to anything, though, definitely do your homework and making sure that the money is actually well-spent.

The list is too long so I used google translate, feel free to leave corrections and additions in the comments.

Ever Night 2 releases trailer

Wang Hedi replaces Arthur Chen Feiyu in Ever Night 2

Despite a change in the male lead from Arthur Chen to Wang Hedi, the trailer for the new season of Ever Night looks imo even better than the previous one, with better CGI and a more crispy edit. The drama brings back director Yang Yang as well as most of the first season’s cast – Song Yiren, Yuan Bingyan, Dylan Kuo, Sun Zujun, etc. Yang Chaoyue joins the cast as the god Haotian, while Lian Lian replaces Tong Yao as the princess. There’s still no broadcasting date announced.
