This weeks’ photoshoots consists of some of my favorite recent photoshoots of Sisters Who Make Waves. While I have mixed feelings about the show itself, I do love many of the contestants and hope the best for them after the show.Continue reading
Eva Huang is a human-butterfly-bird hatching from an egg in this pretty but also pretty weird photoshoot. I’m not sure if the photoshoot team knows that just because butterflies have wings doesn’t meant they are birds that hatch from an egg in a nest, but it’s pretty so we’ll forgive them.
The actress is currently in girl group reality show Sisters Who Make Waves.Continue reading
Now this is my type of show! Woman Like Me / Sisters Who Make Waves 乘风破浪的姐姐 (lit. translation) is aimed at forming a mature-age girl group, and I am loving all the contestants (full list below) and producer Huang Xiaoming after watching the first episode.
The variety show airs every Friday at 12pm on Mango TV, and will be up on YouTube shortly thereafter.Continue reading
Republican era bromance drama Winter Begonia, which still has no release date, has released a set of character poster and a video of the shooting session with Huang Shengyi and Huang Xiaoming looking like they’re going out on a hunt together. I just need this drama to air now so I have something to watch.Continue reading
Everlasting Serenity 岁岁青莲 (lit.) was originally a Qing dynasty romance drama that went by the name of Xifei’s Royal Love in the Palace. To avoid delays due to censorship, production company New Classics Media (Ruyi’s Royal Love) has changed the dynasty, though the storyline will remain intact for the most part. He Hongshan (Legend of the Phoenix) plays Luo Qinglian, a kind-hearted and learned noble lady who marries prince He Lianxin (Peter Ho).
Peking opera-themed Republican drama Winter Begonia 鬓边不是海棠红 released its first full set of still today while announcing the full cast. The Yu Zheng-produced series stars Huang Xiaoming, Yin Zheng, Charmaine Sheh , Tan Jianci, Merxat, Ma Su, Bai Bing, Du Chun, Huang Shengyi, Liu Min. Gao Yu’er, Chi Shuai, and Tang Zeng.
Wang Luodan in her bridal getup for Cosmo Bride could have her cake…and stand on it; doesn’t she look perfect as a figurine, with those colorful balloons? No groom to accompany her in this shoot, but her sister cameos in a white dress. Meanwhile, Wallace Chung and JIa Qing promote their new drama together in wedding style. Qin Lan dons white and silver jewelry, but she’s definitely the only lady here who’s shooting with a jungle as a background. Eva Huang Shenyi is the last bride in this round-up, glamorous white sparkly silver heels (has she met anyone from the stars recently…?) Continue reading
This round-up is completely different from the other Photoshooy Friday: Florals. See, it’s not even trying to disguise itself as a Friday weekly…
Tong Liya and Kitty Zhang Yuqi are completely ready for spring – the former is surrounded by pink flowers, the latter covered with them. Xu Qing wears them as earrings (so does Eva Huang Shenyi, if you look hard enough), while Liu Shishi and Wang Luodan both deck themselves with lacy flower patterns. I’m going to pass Zhang Ziyi’s black plumes off as leafy ferns.
Tong Liya looks ready for Easter in her Femina shoot, and Eva Huang Shenyi alternates between an ice queen and a casual summer look. Li Yuchun is dashing as a man for Marie Claire, and Sun Li has a few vampire-looks dressed in black. Meanwhile, Ying’er is cute in a bird print dress, and Bea Hayden poses with a stone bust in white. Mickey He poses around in a busy city, suave in suits. Continue reading
