Lu Han, Wu Lei’s CrossFire releases trailer

I feel like Lu Han’s character would probably lose just because of the internet and computer speed difference over a decade.

Lu Han and Wu Lei play a pair of gamers separated by a decade who end up meeting each other in a video game.

I’m super impressed by Lu Han’s acting in this trailer. His acting is so natural in every scene. He’s shown he can act previously in movies, but hasn’t really brought that to dramas (expected since dramas tend to have less directing and time to perfect every scene). The trailer and premise both look great and I hope it’s good. The drama co-stars Wu Lei, Dai Luwa, and Cecilia Boey and is airing on July 20th.

Dilraba, Wu Lei confirmed for The Long Ballad

I’m having a hard time imagining Wu Lei as the powerful general, because he is still a kid to me. It’s unfortunate Qu Chuxiao was pulled from the role at the last minute due to a contractual dispute with his agency, because I really think he could’ve made the role his own.

Period drama The Long Ballad 长歌行 stars Dilraba as Tang-dynasty princess Li Changge, daughter of crown prince Li Jiancheng. Her father was assassinated at Xuanwu Gate in a palace coup by Li Shimin, and she has sworn to get revenge by overthrowing her uncle.

Xu Zheng-produced pet film stars Zhang Zifeng, Wu Lei, Wallace Chung, William Chan, Yang Zishan

With a track record of supporting talented new directors by producing films like Dying to Survive, A or B, and How Long Will I Love U, Xu Zheng will hopefully continue this trend with his latest production, pet-themed ensemble film Adoring 宠爱 by new director Yang Zi.

Adoring finished filming early in the summer and is set for a Dec. 31, 2019 release date. The film feature six segments – Yu Hewei X Li Landi, Wu Lei X Zhang Zifeng, Yang Zishan X Wallace Chung, William Chan X Zhong Chuxi, Tan Jianci X Kan Qingzi, and poor Guo Qilin all by himself (but with a puppy!) . Can you name all the cast members from the Xu Zheng-judged Season Two of I Am An Actor?
