The rest of the Super Girl photobooks (Huang Ying, Jiang Yingrong and Pan Chen) have been released. Of the three, I could only find the cover of Pan Chen’s photobook. Overall, I was a bit unsatisfied with the photoshoots. Though very pretty, they didn’t really show the personality appeals of the girls – Huang Ying’s simple, childlike cuteness and Jiang Yingrong’s infectious happiness sprinkled with sexiness.
Also, I think the Vanessa Hudgens -ness is a sign that Hunan TV should do more musicals, though with people who can actually sing. (more…)
The top 10 Super Girls are all releasing their own mini(?)-photobooks. Looking through these pictures, which are far not too artistic but captures the girls in their natural prettieness, it is not hard to realize how bad Elle must be to make the girls look anything less than gorgeous.
The first batch of pictures released are that of Li Xiaoyun, Liu Xijun, Yu Kewei, Zeng Yike, Pan Hongyue and Li Yuanxi. (more…)
High ratings, ton of eye candy, adorable theme and an exciting scriptwriter made both Meteor Shower and Super Girls a success this year.
Both reached about the rating of 3.0 (over 60 million viewers) at their latest, and both have had an upward slope of viewership. Meteor Showers peaked at about 3.1, and Super GIrls had 3.46 last week (70+million). And that’s not counting the number of people who watched it through other devices (Super Girls last week had over 100 million users watching it on PPLive)
When revisiting this summer, Chen Chusheng’s lyrics come to mind – “this winter(summer) did not bring me any surprises.” There were small things along the way that were unexpected, but for the most part, GBS (Golden Eagle Broadcasting System, aka the Hunan Broadcasting Company that owns eeMedia and Hunan TV) delivered to the best of their abilities. There were no breakthroughs, only GBS doing its best. (more…)
Meteor Shower seems to have already lost the dramatic category before it even started. Super Girls’ scriptwriters are probably way better. What other drama has the music, the dancing, the pretty girls, the tears, the triumphs, the unsung heroes, the evil henchmen, and of course, the righteous Judge Bao (somebody on baidu tried to link his heritage to Judge Bao Qingtian) like Super Girls?
Li Xiaoyun, you know, on this stage, playing the guitar on this stage is very dangerous. But I want to thank you for reminding me of someone. Her name is Wang Zhixin, and she once sung a song called Match Heaven. I once said her music striked straight into the heart. I want to thank her and thank you.
I cried the moment he mentioned Wang Zhixin. But wow, if last week’s comment about “protective forces” wasn’t direct enough, this week’s comment about the guitar is way too obvious. (He’s hinting at the fact that Wang Zhixin got kicked out so she wouldn’t compete with Zeng Yike as the guitars).
Forget about the happy, the female and the voice. This is war, and judge Bao Xiaobo is one against many.
After walking out last time because he disapproved of Zeng Yike’s admittance into the top 20, Bao Xiaobo returns, vowing to help the other 9 girls left . He begins the contest by saying that he wants “voices with confidence, voices that doesn’t waiver, and voices that aren’t off key.” Yikes for Yike.
