Zhang Yixing (Lay) fainted at Incheon Airport on October 11th due to exhaustion/lack of sleep (these people work way too hard, get some rest and stay healthy!)

Get better soon, Lay!

Jackson and Tao are known to be close friends (caring for each other through injuries and the hard times in Korea)

Lastly, we are covering C-pop! This is the music chart for this week

  3. Wang Junkai – 树读
  4. Kimi Qiao – 环城巴士
  5. SNH48 – Princess’ Cloak

Huang Zitao just released the Taiwanese version of his album, The Road. The Chinese version sold out within 30 minutes. His debut mini-album, T.A.O, that released in 2015 broke digital sales record in China by selling 670,000 copies within its first week of release. This record is still held by him.


This new album features Wiz Khalifa (they met at Tao’s L.A. music studio)


Zhang Yixing (Lay)’s new MV for single, what U need? (catchy!! His dancing is also amazing). UPDATE: Lay’s first album will be released October 28th

The MV for 环城巴士, Kimi Qiao‘s posthumous single (I like it!)

  1. Soooo excited for Rise of the Phoenixes !
    Heard the rumor of the female lead is Li Qin or Tong Li Ya?
    I definitely recommend people to read the novel that Oh My General is based upon. Pretty comedic on some parts 😀
    Aww, hope Lay get some rest. His song sounds pretty nice.
    I got a bit teary listening to Kimi’s song 😢


  2. Thanks for the update! Rise of the Phoenix looks pretty interesting. LinQin is set to film for Ruyi after Princess so I wonder if she would take another drama too.
    Four episodes a week for Princess okay thank you Hunan. I hope by this they mean on TV and not what they did with Chusen where they aired two episodes on TV and four online. I am thinking Princess is finishing up filming sine a lot of people are posting pics, etc.


    1. Oh god, I hope not. Hunan TV, please don’t do that!! I agree 🙂 it finished filming!! Now, I am so curious what ZLY’s next project is


    1. You’re right!! wow. They look so much alike. 😱 Had to double check the article to verify
      I don’t think I can call myself a ZLY fan anymore….(
