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!

More character stills from upcoming drama Qin’s Moon

Michelle Chen and the (absolutely adorable) child actress for the princess of Yan take a break from filming to take a selfie together (and prove that Michelle Chen suffered really bad photoshop in her character stills)

Tangren’s drama adaptation of QIn’s Moon has released another set of character stills. Lu Yi, MIchelle Chen, Jiang Jinfu, and Sun Yizhou show off more costumes/poses, but they’re also joined by Sui Yongliang as Gao JIanli, Gong Beibei as Snowlady, Song Ning as the senior “Controller of Fate”(Da Siming, who was female in the original), Qu Zheming as White Phoenix, You Jingru as the junior Siming, and Zhang Lei as Zhao Gao (a very powerful, and generally evil eunuch from the Qin dynasty). Look under the cut to see character stills.

Also, if you were interested in the animation series, the trailer for Season 5 was also recently released. HQ version of the season 5 trailer here; Youtube version below the cut. There was also a trailer showing off how nice the animation of the series is becoming, for another one of the special shorts (you can watch the full short here) (this one is particularly heavy on the fantasy).

Patricia Field becomes Stylist Consultant for “Du Lala’s Promotion”

2009-8-7_10_27_18

China’s film market growing in size means that you now have enough money to hire famous crew. While I normally would rather these jobs go to rising Chinese artists, so that the industry can actually build up talent, who can say no to Patricia Field? She’s the stylist for Sex and the City, Devil Wears Prada, etc. She flew from New York to Beijing in order to be a consultant for the movie, Du Lala’s Promotion, an adaptation of a very popular novel in China, and the much publicized directorial comeback of actress-director-screenwriter Xu Jinglei.

Cross-Profession Artists’ Burberry Photoshoot for Men’s Uno and HotSpot

8cac19ce737f181ab700c872

From L-R linda, Peng Tan, Song Ning, Chun Xiao, and Zhang Junning

I have no idea if the title made sense to anyone? Basically Men’s Uno grabbed five artists that dabble in different areas of the entertainment field (singing, acting, modeling) and put them in Burberry clothing. The shoot caught my attention because it had both Peng Tan and Zhang Junning who are just so different from each other. The other guy is Song Ning who started out as a model and now falls into that category of late twenties  to early thirties actors who only have slight fame in China. He’s been in a few series and a few MVs, including one of Ding Wei’s back when she still sang (she composed this song as well…don’t you just love her?).
