Super Boy 2013: Beijing and Hangzhou Stops

想唱就唱 我最响亮

想唱就唱 我最响亮

Sorry for this late post on Super Boys, but I was trying to find the motivation to write abut these two regions. A totally of 25 people received the pass card, with 14 from Hangzhou and 11 from Beijing. You would think with 14 pass cards there’s some INCREDIBLE talent in Hangzhou… Anyway Super Boy held audition in Beijing for the first time (that must’ve been a big tourist attraction lol). You can watch the full Beijing and Hangzhou episode on HNTV Official Youtube. After you’ve watch it, please tell I’m not losing my right to write Music Monday? Because Hangzhou really didn’t need 14 pass cards. Watch selected performance below with limited comment, so I wouldn’t get myself in trouble for saying too much.

The 66 to 20 knock-out round will air live on the 11th and 12th. The judges for this round will be: Tao Chingying, Chen Kun, Nicholas Tse, and eeMedia’s very own Li Yuchun. You know when HNTV is taking a show seriously when they bring out both He Jiong and Wang Han to MC. Continue reading

Jiang Kaitong, Han Chengyu do a fancy photoshoot


Jiang Kaitong also wishes her company would spend more on good scriptwriters instead of only trying to  make everything look pretty.

Mango Films actors Jiang Kaitong and Han Chengyu does a fancy photoshoot together. I really like how  Mango Films spends a lot of money to actually package their artists with great outfits and photography/cinematography.

Jiang Kaitong is currently filming drama Love Shine 爱闪亮 with Jones Xu (!) and Van Fan.
Han Chengyu is still attending school at the Beijing Film Academy, but you can watch the latest photos for his upcoming Qiongyao drama Like Flower Like Fog 花非花雾非雾 here.

More of the shoot here and below the cut.

“Flowers in Fog” releases stills in France

This is about the only still of the two where they are neither kissing nor about to kiss.  It seems like Li Sheng just isn’t cut out to eat pork.

The queen of romance sets her latest series in the most romantic country – France.  With her favorite casts that include both old-timers Ruby Lin and Wan Qian and new favorites Li Sheng, Zhang Rui, Gao Ziqi and Medina, as well as a few newbies Han Chengyu, Joo Jin-mo, Deng Lun and Yang  Zi,  “Flowers in Fog 花非花雾非雾”  is the latest work from author Qiong Yao.   With an emphasis on art and focusing on art students,  France seemed like the perfect setting for the film.  Following coverage by the French press, including Le Telegramme and TF1, Qiong Yao decided to celebrate by releasing stills of the series.
