Posters, stills, photoshoots, and random photos that caught my eye this week.
Upcoming historical romance drama The Song of Glory 南歌, previously known as 雀谋 / 锦绣长歌 / Biding Time, comes from the producers of The Princess Weiyoung, and stars Li Qin (Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace) as the mistress of a dance house who is later revealed to be the missing daughter of a respected family of warriors. Qin Hao (Tomb of Sea) costars as Liu Yilong, the emperor of Liu Song and her main love interest. Continue reading
A round of applause for The Sound Season 2, guys. The variety show has invited four of my favourite actresses – Wan Qian (Tribes and Empires, Lost in 1949), Liu Mintao (The Disguiser, upcoming The Love of Hypnosis), Qin Hailu (Red Sorghum, White Deer Plain) and Li Qin (White Deer Plain, Princess Agents)– to participate in the fourth episode, which airs on the 15th.
It seems like it’s now a thing for fashion event to take group photos now. This time, Marie Claire captures Yang Mi, Tang Yan, Ni Ni, Angelababy, Zhou Dongyu, Victoria Song Qian, Li Qin, Zhao Wei, Wu Lei, Cai Xukun, Fan Chengcheng, Huang Xuan, Song Weilong, Sun Yi, Zhang Tian’ai, Lisa Lu, Song Zu’er, Wang Ziwen, Chen Wenqi, Dong Jie, Tong Liya, Jolin Tsai, He Sui, and Xi Mengyao behind a window. This time we’re at Marie Claire. How does this compare to the Cosmo, Elle, and Vogue photoshoots earlier this year?
Liu Haoran, Wu Lei, Li Yuchun, Cai Xukun, Yang Mi, Tong Liya, Han Geng, Kim Jaejoong, Zhai Tianlin, Yin Zheng, Gulnazar, Jing Boran, Zhou Dongyu, Xiao Zhan, Li Qin,
Wei Daxun Dong Li,etc. pose as if they were at a press conference for a Cosmo event. The photoshoot is probably one of the more interesting “event photoshoots” lately, although they didn’t even bother to change the color palette when they ripped off of a Ni Ni Gucci ad.
Who looked the best?
I have not yet watched Battle Through the Heavens / Fights Break Sphere 斗破苍穹, but here’s another set of watercolor/calligraphy posters for leads Wu Lei, Lin Yun, Baron Chen, and Li Qin.
Dilraba, Li Qin, Ni Ni are beautiful under the red lights of these photos
I’m picturing a film of three neighbors living in an abandoned motel turned rundown apartment in the red lights district. Li Qin is a small town college graduate at her first job, trying not to lose herself among the lights of the big city; Dilraba is an aspiring actress who has run away from her affluent home to pursue her dreams, only to be turned down again and again; Ni Ni is a singer/dancer at a nightclub who has long given up on any dreams she might’ve had.
