Guo Jingming’s Onmyoji adaptation releases trailer

Guo Jingming’s Onmyoji 阴阳师 adaptation released its first trailer today to prepare for its Christmas opening. I don’t know why Hollywood continues to build crappy sets like this one for Shang-Chi when even a Guo Jingming CGI-fest looks like this.

The film stars Mark Zhao, Deng Lun, Wang Ziwen, Chun Xia, and Wang Duo. How does this compare to Chen Kun and Zhou Xun’s Yinyang Master, which has the same name in Chinese?

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.

Chen Xiao, Wang Ziwen’s medical procedural drama releases trailer

Wang Ziwen, Chen Xiao, and Jia Qing’s medical procedural drama Healer of Children 了不起的儿科医生 released its first trailer yesterday. Chen Xiao seems way too young to look like he was a doctor when Wang Ziwen was still a child, but that seems to be what the trailer implies?

The series is directed by Yang Lei (Stairway to Stardom,The Red) and written by Wang Huan (Kill Mobile) and Weng Haixin (A Simple Hero). No news on airing dates yet.
