Tong Liya, Jerry Yan are “Loving, Never Forgetting”

704_1350074_796275

I can’t tell if she’s wearing a wedding gown with a really big veil, or in bed.

In another classic Internet novel plot, Jerry Yan’s big boss has an one-night stand with Tong Liya’s poor intern and totally forgets about it until one day, he finds a little boy in need of blood donations, and he turns out to be his son …

The trailer for Loving, Never Forgetting 恋恋不忘 didn’t look great so I didn’t post on it before, but among the six or so dramas that begun airing last week, this was the only one I stuck with.   The story is a bit cliche, but decent.   Jerry Yan, Tong Liya, and Jerry Huang all look great despite the poor lighting.  Anyways, a recommend until the two dramas I’m really looking forward to are airing soon  –  Boss & Me and Ancient Sword!

Since the fanmade trailer is better than the actual one … Whatever happened to Ocean Butterfly’s music quality anyways?

Weibo Wednesday: January 15, 2014

This week’s Weibo Wednesday will kick off with three couples — can you guess who they are? First is none other than Yang Mi and Hawick Lau, who got married in Bali on January 8th.

杨幂: 谢谢今天的一切,谢谢所有的祝福,谢谢你们,我嫁喽

Thank you for everything today, thank you for all of your blessings, thank you all, I am married.

Some sharp-eyed netizens noticed an ironic Weibo post from October 2011, shortly after Yang Mi and Hawick filmed the MV for “Thorny Embrace” (刺猬的拥抱) together. In it, Yang Mi denies the relationship rumors with Hawick… only to go public not three months later, on January 8th, 2012.

News Roundup 6/8/09 – 6/19/09

We’re going to start a news roundup of all the little bits of news that we don’t have the energy, time, or motivation to make full posts on. I wanted to start one before, but my inherent laziness made it seem like a project doomed to failure; We’re going to try again anyway because now we’re finding it harder to have the energy to make those full posts.

These links were found mostly by idarklight ….which is how it usually goes on behind the scenes of Cfensi. Except for the obvious parts by me, like where I start to whine about lack of Wang Yuexin activities again. WYX…you’re turning me into a whiner.

Yu Siyuan and B.I.Z

Music:

Yu Siyuan and Biz are back with their new single Zhan Fang, which  is making airwaves across China. Unfortunately no link, but here are the lyrics.

Chinese Paladin 3 OST is out. Though the album is a disappointed to most who loved the first OST, Blue Bird Flying Fish may make their lucky break as their song, “Ci Sheng Bu Huan,” was a general favorite. Listent to the OST here.

Huang Yali‘s first MV under Taiwanese company Linfair is out. The former Super Girl is one of the latest to benefit from the lifted restrictions on mainland artists in Taiwan.

Also releasing albums recently: Gary Cao, Peggy Hsu, Phoenix Legend, Tan Weiwei, Jerry Yan, and Lollipop. And maybe some artists I’ve forgotten (Don’t hate me!). I’ve linked to youtube accounts where you can listen to the album for some artists.

Mayday‘s DNA MV for their DNA tour is out. Watch it here.

After boybands, come idol dramas?

Will HIT-5 be the first mainland boyband to star in idol dramas?

Are idol dramas a natural procession to boybands? HIT-5 hopes so

Anhui TV stated that it would invest in a drama that is a mix of Meteor Garden and Prince Turns Frog last week. According to the news article, the drama is mostly Taiwanese in nature, with its production team from Taiwanese CTV (which did the original Meteor Garden), but it will be purchased by Anhui TV. The producer stated that “Jerry Yan has already agreed to being the lead, though age is an issue.” The main actresses  was to be chosen between Chen Qiaoen and Jolin Tsai.

In a later article, Anhui TV corrected themselves by saying that it is an original script about a poor girl and two rich guys, though they will look to dramas like Meteor Garden and Prince Turns Frog for guidance. Furthermore, they might look to mainland for the supporting actors and actresses.  While the Meteor Garden rumor is definitely false, the rest could potentially be true, though still unlikely.  But then, Anhui TV has been mainland’s exclusive channel for Jungiery(Mingdao, Qiaoen) dramas.
