A round of applause for The SoundSeason 2, guys. The variety show has invited four of my favourite actresses – Wan Qian (Tribes and Empires, Lost in 1949), Liu Mintao(The Disguiser, upcoming The Love of Hypnosis), Qin Hailu(Red Sorghum, White Deer Plain) and LiQin(White Deer Plain, Princess Agents)– to participate in the fourth episode, which airs on the 15th.
The Sound 声临其境, as the name implies, is a variety show where viewers are treated to a feast for the ears as actors showcase their voices and prove just how important line reading is to acting. Dubbers’ contributions to Chinese dramas should not be overlooked, but it makes a huge difference when you have good actors who are able to use their own voices.
Each week, four actors are invited to dub a wide variety of characters behind the stage, and the two most popular guests make a brief appearance before all four of them prepare a short stage performance.
