Attention Actors posters and stills round-up

Peng Xiaoran and Huang Junjie reenacts The Legend of Demon Cat

From classics like Daming Palace/Palace of Desire and Chinese Paladin to recent films like The Legend of Demon Cat and Cry Me a Sad River, Tencent’s new acting competition Attention, Actors 演员倾就位 combines the best of I am an actor and Phantastic by capturing the actors for a TV performance rather than on stage while still maintaining an one-take rule. Featuring directors Chen Kaige, Li Shaohong, Vicki Zhao Wei, and Guo Jingming, the resulting segments are on average far more watchable than the other two.

Plus, they have some great stills and posters that are better than many dramas and film posters that are wallpaper-worthy. You can watch episode two English subbed here. Zhang Yunlong and Chen Xiaoyun act out Romance in the Rain:

In Youth cast at the amusement park

Zhang Yunlong, Liu Ruilin, and Huang Mengying all graduated from the same class (like twenty people who took every class together) at Beijing Film, while Daisi and Qiao Xin are a year apart from Central Drama.  Zhang, Liu, Huang, and Daisi all work for Yang Mi. 

Young, good-looking, and mostly already bff’s since so many of them went to the same college and works at the same company and have been in every other drama with each other, the cast of In Youth 趁我们还年轻 – Zhang Yunlong, Qiao Xin, Liu Ruilin, Daisy, Huang Mengying, and Huang Bojun are so adorable together.   The trailer was imo the cutest looking of the modern  trailer smorgasbord released last month.

Here’s a photoset of them at the amusement park, and a video of them being dorks (that makes me want to ship every combination of them) :
