The dreaded question has arisen… who is cuter: Nicky Wu, or a Despicable Me Minion dressed like Nicky? For those who are wondering, the first one is Emperor Yongzheng from Bu Bu Jing Xin (步步惊心), now immortalized at Madame Tussauds, and the second is Zhan Lang from To Advance Toward the Victory (向着胜利前进).

When the 4th Prince and his granddaughter teams up for a new drama …

Li Sheng is celebrating Chinese New Year all over the place, first with Mickey He for currently airing drama Qing Cheng Jue Lian倾城绝恋 , and then with her new cast of Roy Qiu, Myolie Wu and Mao Zijun for currently filming drama Wine Beauty 美酒俏佳人. It’s rare for a mainland actress to be the lead with a really famous HK/TW actress as the supporting actress, so while I actually do like Myolie, I’m pleasantly surprised.

Chinese Celebrities When They Were Young

I said I would do a special fun post in exchange for someone making my banner when site hit 10,000. Well, here it is as promised, although nobody ever made me a banner. :( This is still incomplete…I don’t have a few people in here, and I wanted to put an after pic of everyone, but I got way too tired of that so I only put some for some people I didn’t think people would know (like all the mainland guys apparently), but eventually I will update this and make it the most comprehensive Chinese celeb baby picture list ever.

Love or hate her, you’ve got to admit Liu Yifei was one of the most adorable children ever.

More of cute adorable children behind the cut. I think it’s really rare for Chinese people to do plastic surgery (as of now) so this won’t be one of those “spot the differences” posts. This took a lot of time and effort to put together, so PLEASE DO NOT COPY AND POST ANYWHERE ELSE, w/o permission.
