GuiGui looking pretty as opposed to cute for the first time.

Following the spectacular male leads,  photos of the females and the villains of New The Four were released, including Zhang Junning, Bai Bing, Guigui, Jia Qing, Hao Zejia as the female leads and Qian Yonchen, Ma Wenlong, Zhou Muyin and Chen Dacheng as the villains.

Given that actors like Qian Yongchen have recently lead major dramas of their own (most significantly Yu Zheng’s The Bounty Hunter) , yet they’re playing secondary villains here, this is an impressive cast indeed. (more…)

Can you match the backshots with The Four and the antagonist?

I think this might be my favorite cast of lead males ever for a mainland drama.

The Four are played by a string of rising male talents –  Zhang Han, Yang Yang(male) Mao Zijun and William Chan – while Yu Zheng  leads   Mickey He, Qian Yongchen, Ma Wenlong and Zhou Muyin play the antagonists. Given that at least four of those have succesfully been leads of their own, that’s pretty amazing.

The female leads are really varied as well, starring Zhang Junning (female),  GuiGui,  Jia Qing, Bai Bing.  I’ve always thought Jia Qing was the prettiest out of all the gorgeous girls in “Schemes of Beauties,” so I’m especially excited to see her again.

Guest appearances from Tong Liya, Zheng Shuang, Han Dong, Ye Xuan, Huang Haibing, etc. I wonder if Zheng Shuang and Zhang Han will have a scene together?
