How could Liu Bang cheat on her?

There’s a lot of white in this photoshoot, from Qin Lan – with two roles as Empress Lv – as a bride for Cosmopolitan, Huang Yi in wintery neutrals for Vigour, Ni Ni frosty for Glass, Hai Lu with doll eyelashes and snowy flowers, and Yuan Shanshan in simple white. A bit more tropical are Liu Xijun, Bai Baihe, Zhang Meng, and a Tong Liya verging on Lady Gaga. Look below the cut for photos and links to more.

Cast of Sophie's Revenge working the red carpet.

This is one of the two A-List film festivals in Asia, the other being Tokyo. Despite starting late (1993), organizers have been working hard to make this as prestigious as possible, a subjective measure, and it does seem to be a step up from last year with Danny Boyle heading the jury, and various other stars walking the red carpet. I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of these pictures already, sorry for the lateness! I’ll post on the SIFF again later.

Holding hands – every couple in love often began with this simple gesture Love – two pair of hands, separating and joining Holding another person’s hands, doesn’t always mean a smooth future; Love – is sour, bitter, and sweet – hotspot

Stage of Youth Preview + NGs + Wrap Up Celebration Pics

It’s basically like half mainland stars and half EEG people. What…is the point of Kenny Kwan? His acting looks so exaggerated, and while I don’t really seem to mind Joey Yung and Yumiko Cheng’s accents when they speak in mandarin, his bothers the heck out of me. That + the exaggerated acting is very, very painful to watch.

I have a feeling I’ll be disappointed with Zhang Junning’s part…he just looks pensive in this, and it doesn’t seem like his role is very big. And he seems to be paired with Yumiko. Ugh. I’m going to fast forward to those parts anyway.  

/useless commentary about a show that I’ve posted too much on.

Edit: Whoops. I put up the wrong video before.

Edit 2: Wrap up celebration for the series took place at Han Geng’s mom’s new restaurant. Junning looks cute peering over Han Geng’s shoulder in the background. More pics.
