If there’s anything better than one Wang Leehom, it’s four Wang Leehoms. Here he is poking fun at himself in a recent photoshoot for L’Officiel Hommes.
You! You! You! It’s not polite to point like that!
Leehom also randomly started posting sheet music for his songs, starting with “Your Love” (你的愛), the title track from his new album. If you play violin, viola, cello, or bass, and have been dying to learn how to play his music, check out the link!
I practiced violin for the entire evening, and when I walked out of the recording studio, I saw this display… too moving! A Thanksgiving feast personally prepared by my wife, so tasty. I wish that everyone will have a Thanksgiving full of love.
And if that’s not enough meat for you, Vicki Zhao Wei has you covered…
Celebrities plus cute kids is always a plus, right? Hunan TV recently began broadcasting a new reality show called Grade One (一年级), in which actor Chen Xuedong and actress Song Jia are put in charge of a new first-grade class. Watch the show on Hunan TV’s YouTube account.
Me with my mouth full of plastic Mandarin*, I’m also intoxicated. Is Grade One fun to watch?
* “Plastic Mandarin” is a way of referring to Mandarin that is heavily influenced by the Hunan dialects.
Eddie Peng has been enjoying major success with his movies in the past two years: LOVE (爱), Tai Chi 0 (太极1), Tai Chi Hero (太极2), and Cold War (寒战) all surpassed 100 million at the box office, and at last count, A Wedding Invitation (分手合约) brought in 180 million RMB in sales and is expected to reach the 200 million mark.
Apart from having the Midas Touch at the box office, it seems as though Eddie might have another superpower. Did Eddie travel back in time to help shape U.S. politics by becoming one of Barack Obama‘s high school basketball teammates?

Fan: @Eddie Peng, are you sure that’s not you on the bottom left corner? Eddie Peng: Yep, that’s me.
Unfortunately, no one else in this week’s Weibo Wednesday seems to have developed any awesome superpowers, but that’s okay, we love them anyway.
He Jie relives her journey from Super Girl and on in her new song, “That summer. ” The song is composed by Top Combine’s Ma Xueyang, and penned by the original lyricist of the Super Girls theme song. Yay for actually having a good song and MV since leaving eeMedia! Watch it English subbed below by Jo.
The thrice previously posted on eeMedia MV for their 2010 theme Kuai Le Chu Fa – has been released! It was composed by Top Combine’s Ma Xueyang, which I imagine is cheaper for eeMedia than last year, where they hired Da Zhang Wei (the flowers) to compose, and frankly I like Ma’s better. It suits its purpose – it makes you want to start bouncing around while you put up holiday decorations.
I’m putting this up here because it’s an AMAZING album with contribution from all the five members which is so rare for a boyband’s first album. If they keep up the improvement since their first EP these kids will be amazing. Top Combine’s Ma Xueyang composed and wrote four tracks, and the other four members each wrote lyrics for a song. You can tell they put a lot of effort into this, and there’s a good variety of songs, from ballads to fast tracks.
Please support them if you like the album and buy it!
Tracks starting with track three (because most people have heard the first two tracks). I’d listen to all the songs though because they’re all good.
Track 3 Guang Mang – Composed by Ma Xueyang about the friendship of the five members
Okay, so there’s been rumors going around about the new cast of F4, and while I don’t see any hard cold facts, it does seem legit that these four will be playing the Chinese F4, as leaked by a Hunan TV employee. I don’t usually like to post rumors but the final announcement is a month away, and I just wanted an excuse to post pictures and videos of these boys playing instruments. Despite my initial unwillingness to see the Chinese F4 be all from EE/Tianyu’s Superboys, since they aren’t exactly professional actors, and I wanted to see new faces, I think somwhere along the “casting process” I became resigned to the fact that they were going to use people from their own company and this is probably is as good as it gets if it does come to that. I trust Hunan TV to some degree. They’ve made very little misteps in their excellent series, choose people right for the parts, and have great scripts. They said the script was actually already completed so I’m guessing it’s good for this one as well. Continue reading →
Edited #2 A second huge picture of Top Combine (Click for bigger). I’m officially jealous now. Wang Yuexin, Yu Haoming etc didn’t get such nice pictures.
Not only are there like a gazillion boybands in China now, but there are group company MVs! EE Media, the company behind the Supergirls, Superboys and anything affiliated with that, including Top Combine is having its own New Years MV with all of its singers (except Guo Jingming who most recently signed)
