A belated Happy Chinese New Year to all of our beloved Cfensi readers! Who else stuffed themselves silly with delicious food? It looks like Ruby Lin did too, although I hope y’all had better food than pizza. (I mean, no offense to pizza, which I love, but it just can’t compare with good Chinese food.)
So big! Who do you want to hound to death?
Rising actress Zhang Huiwen (Gong Li and Chen Daoming’s daughter in Coming Home) is co-starring with Li Yifeng in a new movie, Forever Young (literally The Gardenia Blooms). Xu Nuo (Li Yifeng) and Yan Qi (Zhang Huiwen) are a greatly admired couple in college. Xu Nuo is famous for being the lead singer for the band “Gardenia,” while Yan Qi dreams of dancing. She has the opportunity to leave the country and dance abroad, but reality becomes an obstacle, and Xu Nuo tries to cheer her up by preparing a surprise…yet this “surprise” forces these impulsive youths to pay a significant price.
The theme song was sung by Angela Wang Shiling (Dad, Where Are You?) and the director of the movie, He Jiong! Look below the cut for more pictures. Li Yifeng also lends his voice for two theme songs. Continue reading

The female cast is stellar cast of film leads, including Coming Home‘s Zhang Huiwen ,The Rooftop‘s Li Xin’ai, Summer of Bubbles‘ Zhang Yuxi, and Song Yi.
It seems like everyone’s becoming a director these days, but I don’t mind if these celebs are all using their fame to promote young and talented actors. Also Zhang Yuxi is gorgeous.
Li Yifeng, Coming Home‘s Zhang Huiwen, Jiang Jinfu, The Rooftop‘s Li Xin’ai, Yang Mi Workshop‘s Zhang Yunlong, Tiny Times‘ Du Tianhao, and Summer of Bubbles the film‘s Zhang Yuxi make a star-studded cast for the latest youth-themed film – Bloom of Youth 栀子花看 2015.
Hoping to distinguish itself from all the other youth-themed films reminiscing on the innocence of youth and first love, this film by He Jiong instead going the Disney channel route. No longer will we see the young loves fall apart and meet years later only to find out the main girl has had an abortion (because seriously, birth control exists), but instead the young leads live out the fullest of their lives.
Filming started this month in Thailand.
