iQiyi recently released trailers and posters for a slew of upcoming shows that will either air exclusively on the site as web dramas and/or on television networks next year. Which shows are you looking forward to most?
Good news for Guofu shippers – Chen Xiao and Mao Xiaotong, who played Yang Guo and Guo Fu in Romance of the Condor Heroes 2013, will be playing the leads in iQiyi’s wuxia drama The Ingenious One 云襄传 (also the drama at the centre of the script re-edit controversy in showbiz drama We Are All Alone).
The Magnolia Awards are here, and it’s another year of wishing that my favourite shows, or at least recipients deserving of the accolades, take home the awards. It’s always a delicate balancing act when it comes to giving out the awards, but I’m happy to report that there were no major surprises tonight (apart from the fact that Liu Lin didn’t win…again). Best Actress was the closest race this year, and Tong Yao edged out Reyizha to take home the award.
Judges include director Liu Jin (White Deer Plain), director Fu Dongyu (The Thunder), Tao Hong (A Little Reunion), Tong Dawei (A Love For Dilemma) and screenwriter Zhang Lei (Chinese Style Relationship).
Another year of the Weibo awards, another year of marvelling at how great all the actresses look.
Select list of attendees: Angelababy, Huang Xiaoming, Bai Jingting, Bai Yu, Deng Chao, Sun Li, Dilraba, Guan Xiaotong, Lu Han, Kris Wu, Huang Zitao, Zhang Yixing, Jin Chen, Li Bingbing, Li Xian, Zhou Dongyu, Liu Haocun, Mao Xiaotong, Ni Ni, Zhao Liying, Song Qian, Song Weilong, Tan Songyun, Tang Yan, Tong Liya, Tong Yao, Wang Kai, Cai Xukun, Wang Yibo, Xiao Zhan, Yang Zi & Yang Mi.
Most of the stars that have had or will have shows broadcast on Tencent attended the event. The actresses have my utmost respect today – it’s currently 2 degrees Celsius in Nanjing. Which look do you like best?
