An all-male photoshoot round-up? Don’t get used to it. But in this testosterone filled drama season, with the top dramas all being war/uprising dramas like the two Sui-Tang dramas as well as The Legend of Chu-Han, there are actually plenty of male photoshoots this time around. Photoshoots from Zhang Han, Yan Kuan, Jing Boran, Jia Nailiang, Zheng Kai, Chen Xiaodong, Huang Haibo and Han Dong in mostly black and white.
