New entertainment update! Keep rolling because we like to have things moving in cdramaland 🙂

Huang Zitao and Yang Mi have worked together before. In the upcoming Takes a Real Man (reality show), they will both be regular cast members. In You Are My Sunshine (the movie), they had scenes together.

They also endorsed a game called I’m the Sovereign

Also, they are game partners in real life. Often, playing together in online games with Huang Xiaoming too. This is the game promotion trailer in case anyone is curious (it’s their real voices):

Another exciting project, The Flower Road to Bid Farewell, starring Maggie Jiang and Wallace Chung

Wallace Huo said in an interview that he created an account to talk with his fans, but no one believed him and they even deleted his posts. Wallace Huo is known for being really private so it doesn’t surprise me that fans didn’t believe him.

Leo Wu (Wu Lei) is all grown up, 10 years ago with Fan Bingbing and Hu Ge

Another star who grew up is Liu Yifei! Here is what she looked like when she was fifteen years old

Zheng Shuang is in the news recently because she has been accompanying a sick elderly lady on walks. She also got stopped by fans and signed autographs for them. For the elderly woman to get treatment, Zheng Shuang arranged for a private jet and limo.

A bit late, but happy belated birthday to Jimmy Lin who turned 42 on October 15, 2016!  🙂 He celebrated his birthday with his daughters (haha… they are male twins XD They are so pretty though ><) and JJ Lin.

Changchun Film Festival (an international film festival held every two years in the Chinese city of Changchun) closing red carpet with various groups and celebrities from Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong. Huang Xiaoming and Bai Baihe won the best actor’s and actress’ awards. Film director Derek Tung-Shing Yee received the best director award. The best Chinese language film went to Xuan Zhang.

  1. Great update. So ZLY has two dramas in the 20 billion club and The Mystic Nine celebrated reaching 10 billion views. I hope Princess Agents is her next hit.

    • thanks for the help! I like the pictures of the Changchun Film Festival that you added!! I think Princess Agents will be a hit 🙂 even Rookie Agent Rouge is doing very well now! More views online than Sparrow (even if it’s just a bit more)

      • I didn’t add those. It was probably Chexmix since they are all nice quality pics ^^
        I am really hoping for Princess Agents and I am really excited about the story. I just saw your update that filming for Princess Agents is finishing up and I am so happy. ZLY needs a mini break. And yes Rookie Agent is doing pretty decent. Daily views and ratings are going up. ^^

    • I know. I didn’t even hear about Dear Translator having a second season or Joe Chen and Tong Dawei’s drama until now! I do too ❤ he's just so handsome even in rags! Have you seen the new stills of him for Takes a Real Man? Such up close and personal shots! I didn't know they were doing a project together, but they seem very well-suited

  5. wow. I didn’t know Chusen was that popular… I might have just developed a new found respect for it.
    ZLY is soooo cute in those bday pics!! =D =D and Wang Kai looks stunning in white! tho that red splash is a little…
    is Zheng Shuang doing charity work for the grandma? That’s pretty nice of her.

    • I think Zheng Shuang was helping the grandma because she lost her husband. It’s a sad story, but it’s just out of the kindness of her heart. Makes me like her so much more!

  7. omg I didn’t realize I wrote the wrong gender for Jimmy’s sons >.<
    Aaaaah I should have double check the article and look at the character properly. Asides from that they're so adorable and Jimmy barely age that much lol. No more editing at night then for me 😛
    Awww poor Wallace Huo. I would follow him, but I don't even know his account lol.
    Waited forever for Tribes and Empires.

  10. Zheng Shuang is really nice. I’ve been watching her behind-the-scenes and offcam videos and I’m liking her even more. I like her personality the most and she also looks very pretty with no make-up in my opinion.
