What does August 2020 look like for your favorite Chinese actors and singers? Here’s a preview of what they’ll be up to based on the schedules put out by some of their workshops. Schedules are based mostly on how much I like their aesthetics.(more…)

Round-up of celebrity September schedules put out by their workshops, mostly selected based on if I liked their photo. I’m too lazy to look up what they’re all filming, but the biggest news is probably that Dilraba is finally filming again after being on filming break since the new lunar year.(more…)
Explore the Note 怒海潜沙 & 秦岭神树, the latest in the Tomb Raider installment, comes out today. Two episodes come out every Thursday-Saturday on Tencent here.

The last one recently began filming and stars Hou Minghao’s ex-teammate Zeng Shunxi.
The series stars Hou Minghao, Chen Yi, Li Man, Zhang Boyu, Yao Yichen, Liu Xueyi, and Yao Lu round up the cast.
The latest TV series based on The Lost Tomb book series, Explore with the Note : Rage of the Sea 盗墓笔记之怒海潜沙 goes under the sea as the crew explores the fallen ship of a Ming dynasty fengshui master.

A couple of travel photoshoots as Chinese actors use work as an excuse to travel. The set features the Jing Boran pondering life in Geneva, streetstyle Hou Minghao in NYC, Liu Haoran skipping around in Turkey, and Huang Xiaoming lying in trees, fields, and shirtless in a trailer in Morocco.
A series for some of my favorite up-and-rising young artists. Most of them aren’t big enough to have fancy photo shoots, but they’re cute. I don’t know a lot of them, so feel free to leave a comment if you want some featured.
Hou Minghao 侯明昊 (born 1997) debuted as a member of the Fresh Geek boyband. He’s most wellknown for his leading role in Cambrian Period 寒武纪. You may have also seen him as a young Wang Kai in The Devotion of Suspect X.
