Upcoming family drama Over the Sea I Come To You 带着爸爸去留学 stars Sun Honglei as a father who saves up every little penny to fund his son’s studies abroad, and is forced to join his son (Zeng Shunxi) on his exchange to the US after his wife’s visa is rejected.
Never Gone 原来你还在这里 released a new trailer following the growth of its four leads – Li Landi and Yang Zishan, Hu Xianxu and Han Dongjun, Li Gengxi and Su Qing, and Bian Cheng and Tan JIanci. The series is set for a November 6th release date on Youku
Trailer below and posters below the cut.
Never Gone 原来你还在这里 released a new set of posters comparing the young and grown-up versions of its four leads – Li Landi and Yang Zishan, Hu Xianxu and Han Dongjun, Li Gengxi and Su Qing, and Bian Cheng and Tan JIanci.
Pretty much everyone but the two adult leads have gotten more well-known since the series was filmed. Lan Yingying, Li Landi, and Tan Jianci have all been applauded for their performances on I’m an Actor / The Birth of an Actor, Hu Xianxu failed on that show but did get his first girlfriend in college, Su Qing was a hit as the antagonist in The Story of Yanxi Palace, Bian Cheng in Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace, while Li Gengxi debuted in her first lead drama My Classmate From Far, Far Away.
Hopefully, the release of the posters means they’ll capitalize on the hype and release the drama soon. Meanwhile, here’s a promo song by Han Dongjun:
This beautiful dream is without regrets, so let us never wake.
The promises we’ve made, do you still remember them?
They won’t be forgotten, so let them remain.
Please continue to sing, for the years of our youth.
I was waiting for a MV for this song, but I don’t think they’re going to do that, so here it is. The catchy folk ballad, Years of Our Youth 年华,is penned by ladybros Tan Jianci and Steelo Zhao Yongxin to commemorate the ten years of M.I.C.’s lives together.
The few M.I.C. fans there still exists probably already know this, but their ten-year-contract ended last December, and it was not renewed. Tan Jianci and Aero Xiao Shunyao both signed under Wu Xiubo’s acting agency and will most likely focus on acting. The other three remains in Taihe Rye as solo artists. I’m not 100% sure what’s going on with them because they’re all clearly in love as of this weekend, and seem to not rule out them performing together.
The first trailer for modern romance drama Never Gone has been released, and stars Yang Zishan (Red Rose) and Han Dongjun (Wuxin: The Monster Killer 2) as a young couple whose sweet romance through high school and university crumbles after getting hit by the harsh realities of life outside the school yard. Talented young actors Li Landi (of cult hit My Huckleberry Friends) and Hu Xianxu (Nirvana in Fire II) play the younger counterparts.
Out of all the subplots in The Advisors Alliance 2, I’m probably most excited about the showdown between Zhuge Liang (Wang Luoyong) and Sima Yi (Wu Xiubo), as well as the Sima family’s descent into darkness and coup against Cao Wei (that just made me sound sadistic).Growling Tiger, Roaring Dragon will begin airing tonight on Youku.

Were you impressed at how gorgeous the new Tangren outfits for its upcoming Three Kingdoms drama. Yours truly happen to be currently in a Chu dynasty phase and immediately recognized them as strangely anachronistic. In fact, half of the patterns for their character posters came directly from the same tomb, the famous No. 1 Chu Tomb of Jiangling Mashan 江陵马山一号楚墓, dated about five centuries before the story’s time.
So, in honor of our beloved Tangren that seems to try each time to be slightly more historically accurate (albeit via the laziest way possible), here’s a a look at some of the patterns of Chu.
The biggest news this week? Fan Bingbing and Li Chen announcing last Friday that they’re in a relationship. The two got close while filming The Empress of China (武媚娘传奇), though they didn’t portray a couple in that drama. This is the first time in her 19-year-long career that Fan Bingbing has publicly admitted that she was dating someone.
Their fairly low-key approach to announcing that they were dating — they simply uploaded a photo of them on Weibo with the caption “Us” — has been replicated throughout the Weibosphere in the few days since. Most of the usage has been tongue-in-cheek, such as Jiro Wang with the Incredible Hulk and a random netizen who somehow got actor Lee Pace to hold up fake marriage certificates with her.
Anyway, congratulations to Fan Bingbing and Li Chen, and I hope they don’t let all the rumors about their past relationships drag them down.
