Song Qian, Song Weilong rom-com releases first trailer

Should she follow her heart or marry someone who seems suitable?

In Find Yourself 资深少女的初恋, a 30-year-old designer ( Victoria Song Qian) must choose between a younger, financially unstable beau (Song Weilong) and a more “suitable” relationship with an exec (Wang Yaoqing) in this rom-com.  The series released its first trailer today in time for the Hong Kong Film Festival.

What happened to Song Qian? I feel like all her projects since Moonshine & Valentine have been really good fits for her and have pretty unique set-ups. Even her acting doesn’t seem that out of place anymore. Her other projects includes The Broker with Luo Yunxi and The Moon Knows Not My Heart with Ou Hao.

Qi Wei Sings for New Drama “Still Lala”

Qi Wei and David Wang for Still Lala

Since its publication in 2007, the novel Du Lala’s Promotion (杜拉拉升职记) has spawned two movies, two TV dramas, one stage drama, and one webdrama. Now the story is headed back to television, with a new TV drama titled Still Lala (我是杜拉拉) and starring Qi Wei and David Wang (Wang Yaoqing).

Still Lala is based on the fourth and final book in the Du Lala series and serves as the third part in the Du Lala TV series, following Wang Luodan‘s A Story of Lala’s Promotion (杜拉拉升职记) and Jiao Junyan‘s Lala’s Shining Days (杜拉拉之似水年华). The titular Du Lala is now in her 30s and enjoying life as an HR manager and a happily married wife. However, a new female coworker threatens to turn her life upside down.

Qi Wei sings the song’s ending theme, “Forgot to Remember” (忘了去记得), which is composed by JJ Lin and penned by award-winning writer Orson Zhang (Zhang Haochen). The MV, which is embedded below, is not all that interesting, but it’s always nice to listen to Qi Wei’s vocals and JJ Lin’s music.

Still Lala began airing on April 16 and is being broadcast on Jiangsu TV and online at Tencent. You can also watch the episodes with subs at Viki.

Musical drama releases more character posters

If anything, this drama needs to win the award for best character posters for a drama.
If anything, with four sets of character posters, drama needs to win the award for best character posters for a drama.

Another set of gorgeous posters for eeMedia’s musical drama and Hunan TV’s first air-as-you-film series, “Song of Vengeance/Journey to the Sing & War/Star Academy”. I love eeMedia’s visual design team N13 with all my heart but I wish the promotional posters and trailers actually gave us a glimpse of what the series is actually like. At least we have eye candy along the way?

Trailer below and more character posters of the cast, including veterans Huang Yida, Qin Lan, and Wang Yaoqing, as well as first-time drama leads Fu Mengni, Chai Biyun, Xie Binbin, and Ou Hao below the cut. The series airs this Sunday.
