Tong Liya has finally parted ways with actor-director Chen Sicheng. He’s been caught multiple times “hanging out” with other women by the paparazzi, so this announcement was just a matter of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Congrats!
Another year of the Weibo awards, another year of marvelling at how great all the actresses look.

Huan Xisha (Silk-washing Stream) has released its first trailer and I think Xi Shi (Tong Liya) and the supporting characters are really well cast – Wang Longzheng‘s Goujian is a real stand-out. The trailer feels like an old-school melodrama but I’ll be giving it the benefit of the doubt based on the cast. [Synopsis]
Tong Liya is making a return to period dramas, and will be playing the famed beauty Xi Shi in Silk-washing Stream / Huan Xisha 浣溪沙. She was discovered by Yue statesman Fan Li (Han Geng), and sent into Fuchai’s (Peter Ho) palace as a spy along with Zheng Dan (Chen Duling).
According to legend, the two women were instrumental in the downfall of the arrogant Fuchai and the restoration of Goujian to the throne. The drama is directed by Gao Yijun (The Empress of China) and written by Zou Jingzhi (The Four Scholars of Jiangnan 2014).
Tong Liya is stunning in this retro glam photoshoot. It kind of makes me want her in a spy role like that of Charlize Theron in Atomic Blond or Zhou Xun in The Message. This is the only photoshoot all year where I’ve posted every photo from the shoot because I want to share all of them.Continue reading
