Celebrity Schedules: September 2019

Yang Mi

Round-up of celebrity September schedules put out by their workshops, mostly selected based on if I liked their photo. I’m too lazy to look up what they’re all filming, but the biggest news is probably that Dilraba is finally filming again after being on filming break since the new lunar year.

The silent film teaser for Beneath the Brocade Robes describes Lu Yi (Ren Jialun) as a shrewd secret police officer / jinyiwei who has formidable martial arts skills. On the other hand, the tomboyish Yuan Jinxia (Tan Songyun) is a poor constable of Liushanmen who is barely capable of protecting herself from bandits.

As one of the youngest actors to star in a 100+ million film, Liu Haoran’s one of the most promising actors of his generation.

“He was already the best he could be, but I didn’t find the best in me until years later.”

Welcome to another installment in the recent surge in high school dramas, but with a better filter than the previous ones, and I believe a male lead who can actually act.   With You 最好的我们  stars Liu Haoren, Tan Songyun, and Wang Yuexin, and airs on April 8th on iQiyi.  Treasure this while you can, because  is probably the last low budget productions for Liu Haoren since he’s made his name in Chinatown Detective.

Chen Xiang as Tinghao, 17. Fierce fighter but child-at-heart, he’s a ray of sunshine to Baicao. He’s born in a family of Taekwondo masters. He was like brothers with Ruobai, but hates Songbo Academy.

I can’t believe Yang Yang‘s finally getting a modern lead!!!!   This has been such a great year for some of my favorite underrated actors, including all three of the male leads here.

Drama  Whirlwind Girl 旋风少女, which started filming this week and is scheduled for a summer release, stars Hu Bingqing, Yang Yang, Chen XiangBai Jingting, Tan Songyun, and Zhao Yuanyuan.    As the third drama by author Ming Xiaoxi to be adapted, this is the youngest cast yet, with the entire cast 15+ years younger than that of Summer of Bubbles.

On a side note, the fact that Hunan TV picked Hu Bingqing who has almost no previous work indicates a strong likelihood Qin’s Moon, for which she’s the female lead, will air soon since Whirlwind Girl already has a scheduled air date in June for Hunan TV’s Sunday/Monday weekly slot.
