The Shaw Eleven Lang has released more character stills and seems set to air on February 9th.  Starring Yan YikuanGan Tingting, Li Yixiao, Zhu Yilong, Zhang Hanyun, Ray Liu, Yuen Wah, and Yu Qingbin, I am going to give up on keeping track of which name they are going to point at this point and just go with this one.

City of Hopeless Love releases trailer

Now if I can only get my hands on more stills…

City of Hopeless Love 华胥引,  starring Kevin CheungGan Tingting, Yuan Hong, Jiang Xin, and Guo Zhenni, is aiming for a July 10th release and has released a trailer.  More hurrahs as things finally come out of the woodwork.  Boo hiss since we’re running low on stills.  To be completely honest, despite the costuming, I’m sickly satisfied with the development of the trailer.  It’s not like being born into royalty was a straight up ticket to being able to do anything you wanted.

Cosmetology High injects humor and botox into the Tang

Bringing on the Tang dynasty grove.

Cosmetology High (formerly the Making of a Beauty)  is a surprising mix of humor and even some creativity, a refreshing change from producer Yu Zheng.   The trailer also confirms my suspicion that Yang Rong is amazing and deserves better roles.  The series co-starring Jin Shijia, Zhang Zhehan, Merat, and guest-starring a lot of pretty people airs on Sundays beginning next week.

City of Hopeless Love releases trailers, stills for “A World of Peace”

With high gratuitous period satisfaction and plenty of chemistry, what more could we want?

Qiao Zhenyu plays the male lead in the next chapter of the upcoming drama City of Hopeless Love 华胥引,  as Kevin Cheung’s character’s father Su Heng. Gan Tingting plays the love of his life, the beautiful immortal Murong An. The drama also features Yuan Hong and Jiang Xin (in their End of an Unstable Life chapter) and Guo Zhenni (in Thirteenth Moon). 

The story goes that Su Hung was determined to have Murong An as his master, and the two agreed that if Su Heng could defeat Murong An, then Murong An would marry him. So Su Heng studiously set to practicing his swordsmanship, eventually winning Murong An as his bride. However, Su Heng’s father makes marrying another woman the stipulation if Su Heng wishes to inherit his throne….more synopsis* under the cut. Watch the trailer below with English Subtitles so everybody can enjoy! There are more stills, and another trailer under the cut.
