Weibo Wednesday: September 23, 2015

This is less of a Weibo Wednesday update and more of round-up of a bunch of celebrities who announced they were dating (or in one case, married) and whom we couldn’t bother devoting an entire post to. Let me know if there are any celebrities you’d like an update from, because the Weibosphere has been a little dry lately, tbh.

Whether you loved or hated The Romance of the Condor Heroes (神雕侠侣), you gotta admit that the way leads Chen Xiao and Michelle Chen went public with their real-life relationship is pretty cute.

Tangren still loves snow in drama stills released for Qin’s Moon

Michelle Chen’s hair is so much better here than it is in ROCH. Also, Tangren really likes its snowswept scenes. No, really. Even though it’s usually Liu Shishi.

After releasing a few sets of character stills and a trailer, Tangren has decided to show off some drama stills for upcoming television series Qin’s Moon. This end-of-Qin dynasty era wuxia drama is slated for broadcast later this year,Jiang Jinfu, Qin Junjie, Hu Bingqing, Lu Yi, MIchelle Chen, Sun Yizhou, and Gina Jinchen. At least one of the actresses come from a dance background, so you’ll be glad to know that they can (or should be able to) pull off some of the more martial arts heavy scenes. Look under the cut for more stills!

Trailer released for drama adaptation of Qin’s Moon

Tl;dr (you may need to have a basic grasp of the series in order to understand some of the trailer): Jing Tianming (Jiang Jinfu) is the son of the legendary assassin Jing Ke, who died in a failed attempt to kill Ying Zheng (our beloved First Emperor).The swordsman Ge Nie (Lu Yi) takes him under his wing, and along the way, they meet the future King of Chu Xiang Yu (Qin Junjie), a princess of former Yan (Hu Bingqing), and the talented doctor Duanmu Rong (Michelle Chen). Other members of the core cast include Sun Yizhou, Gina Chen, Qu Zheming, Zhang Lei, Gong Beibei, and You Jingru. 

Some of the wuxia scenes are a little awkward – Tangren’s CGI seems to have improved, but be warned, it’s not hard to do better than the lotuses you saw in Bu Bu JIng Xin. I can’t hold that against them though; the couple I’ve shipped for 5.5 years finally got together in this trailer, so…I’m looking forward to this one.

Also, the fifth season of the animated series is going to be released on December 25th.
