Chinese Celebrities When They Were Young

I said I would do a special fun post in exchange for someone making my banner when site hit 10,000. Well, here it is as promised, although nobody ever made me a banner. :( This is still incomplete…I don’t have a few people in here, and I wanted to put an after pic of everyone, but I got way too tired of that so I only put some for some people I didn’t think people would know (like all the mainland guys apparently), but eventually I will update this and make it the most comprehensive Chinese celeb baby picture list ever.

Love or hate her, you’ve got to admit Liu Yifei was one of the most adorable children ever.

More of cute adorable children behind the cut. I think it’s really rare for Chinese people to do plastic surgery (as of now) so this won’t be one of those “spot the differences” posts. This took a lot of time and effort to put together, so PLEASE DO NOT COPY AND POST ANYWHERE ELSE, w/o permission.

Why the heck is there so much Chinese Entertainment news?

I gave up trying to translate all of the articles one by one and instead decided to stock compile. This way you get a lot of news but maybe not all the detail. Comment if you’d rather me take more time or one or two articles rather than doing something like this. I think I have enough news to do one or two more of these posts actually right now.

1. Idol singer Li Yifeng is still alive and kicking (I thought he wasn’t, the active part I mean, not the alive or dead part). As part of his promotion for his first release, his EP Ferris Wheel, he sang and met with fans in Chengdu, played games in Fu Zhou with them and now supposedly in Beijing according to Baidu.

Jay Chou still trumps JJ Lin in Sales

JJ...too cute to be diao? It's okay, maybe next time!

Despite JJ Lin’s Sixology album being generally considered better than Jay Chou’s latest release Capricorn, and the fact that he collabed with people all over the Chinese music industry (HK’s Charlene Choi, Taiwan’s Maichi, and China’s Kym Jin Sha) the Taiwan music charts have JJ’s newest release as having debuted at #5 with only 2.97% of sales. Jay Chou is at number two this week with 19.9% of the sales. S.H.E dropped all the way to 9 from # 2 but had a pretty good run. Most impressively One Million Star’s Jam Hsiao is still strong after 17 weeks at number 6 and even more impressive, Ding Dang’s Decisively Loved is clinging to the list at spot 14 after 16 weeks, which I’m sure is a rarity for a mainland singer in Taiwan. Jay Chou’s album sales has just recently crossed the 1 million number mark.
