They better use Xianzi’s real voice for singing because I miss her voice so much.

Peter Ho may not be the best-looking actor, but he has great taste in actors for his own productions.  His latest drama, Beautiful Secret, features Victoria SongXianzi, and Wei Qianxiang, and Shao Yuwei in a drama about singing competitions.   I hope Xianzi sings a lot of songs for this.

Tai Rye Music’s New Boyband M.I.C to Debut in LG Lollipop CF

We first read about this group in a  fascinating article  in the business section of the entertainment news. In it  mainland label Tai Rye talked about the costs of producing the boyband, first spending a year going to various art schools and talent locations in China to select from thousands. Then they picked 50 kids aged 15-17 to go to Beijing and train, eliminating a few each week. Finally, after three years, the group MIC was formed with 6 members, with a long-term investment of millions including choreographers for American artists like Madonna. The only thing they have mentioned in their upcoming lineup however is LG Lollipop phone commercial for the China market, which has emerged recently.
