Rene Liu’s directorial debut Us and Them 后来的我们 stars Zhou Dongyu (Thousand Faces of Dunjia) and Jing Boran(Monster Hunt 2) as two strangers who fall in love after meeting on the train when travelling back to their hometowns during the Spring Festival holidays.
I know, I know, we’ve been behind on music, but real life is full of White Pears 鸭梨 (Pressure). To make it up, here are some new releases from boybands(Top Combine, M.I.C., Uniq), girlbands(Seven Sense), normal bands (Mayday), and ex-band members (Han Geng, JL’s Jason, RTA’s Liu Junling, and Da Zhang Wei).
JJ Lin and Taiwanese band May Day’s first collaboration, The Dark Knight 黑暗骑 was accompanied by a gloomy mini-movie; warning, the thirty-minute film revolves around suicide and the angsting appropriate for such a dark topic. Part one of the film is found here; part two can be seen here. For the song itself, JJ Lin and Ashin (Mayday) provided the vocals, with JJ Lin composing the music. Mayday also contributed to the tune and the performance (of the instruments)(?)

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