Stage of Youth Preview + NGs + Wrap Up Celebration Pics

It’s basically like half mainland stars and half EEG people. What…is the point of Kenny Kwan? His acting looks so exaggerated, and while I don’t really seem to mind Joey Yung and Yumiko Cheng’s accents when they speak in mandarin, his bothers the heck out of me. That + the exaggerated acting is very, very painful to watch.

I have a feeling I’ll be disappointed with Zhang Junning’s part…he just looks pensive in this, and it doesn’t seem like his role is very big. And he seems to be paired with Yumiko. Ugh. I’m going to fast forward to those parts anyway.  

/useless commentary about a show that I’ve posted too much on.

Edit: Whoops. I put up the wrong video before.

Edit 2: Wrap up celebration for the series took place at Han Geng’s mom’s new restaurant. Junning looks cute peering over Han Geng’s shoulder in the background. More pics.

Han Geng and Zhang Junning Filming Dance Scenes Together

I’ve been waiting forever to find pictures of these two dancing together and this is it I guess. I must be the only one who is going to watch this not because of Han Geng but because of Zhang Junning, even though I like Han Geng too. Zhang Juning shot to fame last year when he landed a coveted role in  Five Star Hotel, a Hai Yan drama series. He’s also pretty passionate about dancing, although he never had too much formal training. Zhang Junning seems to be trying to be a triple-threat, with acting, dancing, and sometime soon singing, which was expected since he was a music major at university. Let’s hope he lives to that potential because he’s tremendous eye-candy. More pictures below.

Han Geng and Zhang Junning Start Filming Dancing Drama

Today there was a lots of news all semi-related to each other and all involving hot guys so I’ll take this one at a time.

First of all, CCTV is starting the production on a new autumn drama (basically fun, non serious drama like the lunar new year movies, but for tv), called Stage of Youth, which may as well be an idol drama, with its cast. It is about competitive dancing, with Han Geng, the only Chinese member of the Korean boyband Super Junior in the lead as a dancer. Zhang Junning is playing his rival. Both have dancing experience, with Han Geng having graduated from a dance academy and Zhang Junning having learned dance for the series that brought him to fame, “Five Star Hotel”, and was a contestant on “Strictly Come Dancing”. He didn’t win that but I’ve seen him dance on variety shows and I think he’ll definitely be able to pull off this role. And the fact that he’s one of the hottest guys I’ve ever seen doesn’t hurt either. The drama will be twelve episodes.
