I haven’t been paying attention to dramas entirely but these stills from The Last Night of Madame Chin caught my attention – Fann Wong, top Singaporean actress, looks so beautiful. Almost like Shirley McLaine circa the Apartment, but more regal. Past stills from the series here.
Has anyone seen The Last Night of Madame Chin? How is it? It seems to be doing well in China in ratings. Either way it seems markedly improved in production quality from the last Studio Fan Bingbing series, and upward trends are always nice.
Posting this because I feel like there should be more Cdrama news because that’s even more underrated than cpop, and because I liked the costumes. This is the second production from Studio Fan Bingbing. From what I heard, her studio’s first drama Rouge Snowwas good with fairly elegant production values, and this seems to be an even greater improvement upon that, costing as much as 950,000 yuan per episode. The drama is based on the novel of the same name, and was previously portrayed on stage by Chinese actress-legend Liu Xiaoqing. It depicts the story of Madame Chin (played here by Fan Bingbing), who rises to prominence from a lowly ballroom dancer in old Shanghai, and her relationships with three men, here played by Alex Fong, Vic Zhou and Anthony Wong.
