Promo Round-up: Nirvana in Fire 2: The Wind Blows in Changlin

Nirvana in Fire 2: The Wind Blows in Changlin occurs nearly half a century after the events of Nirvana in Fire, and the safety of the Liang Dynasty is still being threatened by neighbouring kingdoms and corrupt politicians.

My expectations are pretty low given the fact that sequels never work, though with directors Kong Sheng and Li Xue at the helm, it’s bound to look gorgeous.The 50 episode drama will air two episodes every Monday to Wednesday on Dragon and Beijing TV beginning tonight. English subs will be available on Dramafever and Viki.

Zhang Huiwen is a ballerina again in Forever Young

005voYV6jw1etfk7hw69vj30mm0xce0u

Fun fact: Zhang Huiwen portrayed an (ex)ballerina in her debut film (Coming Home), and again in this upcoming youth film, but she actually majored in folk dance.

Rising actress Zhang Huiwen (Gong Li and Chen Daoming’s daughter in Coming Home) is co-starring with Li Yifeng in a new movie, Forever Young (literally The Gardenia Blooms). Xu Nuo (Li Yifeng) and Yan Qi (Zhang Huiwen) are a greatly admired couple in college. Xu Nuo is famous for being the lead singer for the band “Gardenia,” while Yan Qi dreams of dancing. She has the opportunity to leave the country and dance abroad, but reality becomes an obstacle, and Xu Nuo tries to cheer her up by preparing a surprise…yet this “surprise” forces these impulsive youths to pay a significant price.

The theme song was sung by Angela Wang Shiling (Dad, Where Are You?) and the director of the movie, He Jiong! Look below the cut for more pictures. Li Yifeng also lends his voice for two theme songs.  Continue reading
