<Drama General and I starring Angelababy and Wallace Chung releases new poster stills along with a trailer!>

Synopsis: Bai Ping Ting had never believed in the saying that “ladies without a talent is a virtue.” She is Xiao Jing An Wang’s maid, yet lives with more dignity than the usual ladies, what she relies on is not beauty, but instead is her head that is more wise and intelegent than that of a man’s. She does not need others to sympathize on her average appearance. What she wants is another soul of the same level as her, whom she can compete with. So, even if that man is the general of the the opponent country, even if all between them is deceits and schemes, she is still unable to not be tempted by this man. If between love and loyalty, there is only one choice, she can only hope, Chu Bei Jie’s love, is not as deep as she expected (credit)

Elaine Jin won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Mad World

Fan Bing Bing was nominated for Best Actress in her role of I’m Not Madame Bovary and presented at the award ceremony.

There are rumors that YangZi and Qin Jun Jie are dating. Paparazzi caught them hanging out. I am thrilled about this new couple. I always felt like they had a lot of chemistry during The Legend of Chusen and now I can’t wait to see their latest drama. Congrats!

iQIYi Scream Night Awards will take place on December 3rd. Confirmed guests are Zhao Liying, William CHan, Liu ShiShi, Victoria, Wang Lei, Xie Na, Zhang Han, Zhang Yishan, etc.

China tightened their regulations against the South Korean Entertainment industry even more with Korea installing the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD). Read more about it here. Below are key points to the article.

  • According to a report from China’s culture ministry on Tuesday, no Korean singer has been approved to perform in the country since October.
  • Some applications to perform in China have been turned down by the Chinese government.
  • Chinese daily newspaper Huanqiu Shibao cited that the government’s ban includes Korean product commercials on TV.
  • TV stations have been told to ban any content related to hallyu.

This is a huge setback for the South Korean and China Entertainment industry if this is permanent…..Hopefully things will get sorted out eventually.

  1. Thanks!! OMG this entertainment update is so perfect.
    1) First of all, SO MUCH Zhao Liying ❤ ❤ She deserves every award she gets, especially when it comes to popularity. She is really the top top for me (and most people on this blog hehe). She treated us so much with these pictures and that dress is gorgeous! *_* Also, great to know she is still in touch with Zheng Kai. Plus, that moment on weibo with Qiao En. So happy!!
    2) I definitely want to check out General and I next year and the stills are so pretty. The trailer reminds me a bit of Yun Zhong Ge, which is a bad thing since I hated that drama. LOL Hopefully ABB's acting will be good.
    3) Hu Ge looks so damn good in that photoshot! We are nearly done with his "one year hiatus" and this means, more projects soon! Can't wait for Resume (drama) to be released next year.
    4) iQiYi event with Zhao Liying and William Chan. I still remember the awkward seating of Liying between Wallace and William. Haha, this is going to be fun to watch 8D
    5) Yang Zi and Qin Junjie dating? Yes, a 100%. I used to ship her with Zhang Yishan, but it has been years and they keep denying it. So Junjie is a close second in my list of "potential Yang Zi suitors". Love is in the air~
    6) That Korean ban thing. What a mess. Yes I agree there is an overdose of Hallyu in China, but this is just an over-exaggeration. Over the years, Hallyu had only brought more interests to C-entertainment and even improved the production quality in the industry. It feels like the government is acting petty. I mostly watch only mainland-based actors' dramas, so it doesn't matter too much for me. I just feel bad for all the ready for broadcast dramas that will have to wait a long time. It will also hurt kpop a lot.

  2. Thanks for this! Such a long update. 🙂 Will be interesting to see how WC and ZLY interact in public after so long since that blasted HC episode. #goingdownwiththatship I wonder what chemistry ZLY will have with Eddie Peng in her new movie – she and YY may spark if he was in a manly role (not a pretty boy role!)

    Agree with everyone on the C-wave with subtitles. There are a lot of good c-dramas (together with the not-so-good and propaganda-ish types) and if subbed, would really expose some of these talented actors and actresses.


    1. hahaha. Looks like most people are leaving the WC and ZLY ship and jumping onto the YY and ZLY ship.
      I’m still reserving 90% of my wishes for her and HuGe!


  3. What about the dramas that have already finished because for example park min young and zhang han braveness of the ming wil it not air anymore?


    1. They’re not really banning korean related things all together. Just more hurdles to jump to get it pass the chinese government. So they might still air braveness of the ming but probably after a lot of approvals.


    2. I think it could air but it will be harder now. I know they replaced this Korean actress from a cdrama right before it was about to finish filming and replaced all her scenes with another actress. I think a lot of production companies are afraid of the regulations.


    3. Poor Zhang Han has 4 dramas already filmed, but not broadcast yet with Korean female leads, one of which he produced. Not a good year for him.


  4. 1. Congrats ZLY!!! I am so happy for her. This was a good year and I hope 2017 is even better. lol at Joe Chen joking with her ^^
    2. Liu Tao looks so badass, love it!
    3. I can’t wait for Wallace to grow his hair again. I don’t like this look on him
    4. YangZi and Qin Jun Jie had so much chemistry ❤ I will for sure catch their upcoming drama now.
    5. Finally WC and ZLY will attend the same event. I knew we would have to wait for iQIYI to see them together again. The Mystic Nine should win a few awards, mainly best OTP. They have over 11 billion views on iQIYI making it their most successful drama of the year. I hope they won't let me down.
    6. the anti Korean regulations will really hurt k-wave, who had set their eyes on China. Lately casting in kdramas was targeting the Chinese market and a lot of actors were trying to promote in China. I wonder how this will affect Chinese investors who already bought shares in kpop companies, etc. Looking at it from c-ent perspective, I think this will benefit them in the end. If they can keep making high quality dramas at Nirvana in Fire level, they could start their own c-wave.
    Thanks for the update!

    1. I agree. The bald look only works on rugged-looking men such as Jason Statham and Bruce Willis. Wallace has a pretty boy look so, um…no.
      What’s with the big Russian hat? First Fan Bing Bing; now Liu Tao? She looks good overall but she can do without the large accessory.
      I’m not too sure how Angelababy will pull off “average appearance”. On top of that, others will have to sympathize her on her average appearance. That’s gonna take a lot of acting. haha!
      Aw…Hu Ge in PJs.

      1. yeah Wallace’s face just doesn’t fit this look. It looks out of place. Yeah, I dont know what is up with the hats. She looked better in the other pictures.


    2. Thanks @Chexmix for the update. Congrat for LiYing &Yang Yang..my new shipping after feel heartbroken with the rumor of WC & Diliraba 😁😁..but still hope they will sit side by side at the Iqiyi scream night award and having stage performance together..yess agree with you @fireflymaoh both of them deserve for OTP award especially best couple award (if there is that title award)..and also agree that I don’t like wallace face without hair he just look like someone from outer space..sighh..I think chinnese government shouldn’t not only made an anti korean regulation but also more open to let their entertainment industry such as drama and movie to be known to another country with added english subtitle just like korean do so people who don’t know chinnese still can watch and being update.

      1. Yang Yang feels kind of young for ZLY. I think she likes older guys. Don’t lose hope on our ship ^^
        I agree that China should be more open to exporting their dramas. Letting Netflix get license, etc. Right now I dont think Netflix has rights to any of their dramas but they have rights to tdrama, jdramas, and kdramas.


        1. That’s why I call my self a fangirl because no matter how many time I feel heartbroken from lose hope of my ship I will create another new hope of shipping hahahaha…


    3. I would love for them to create a big enough c-wave so that more international fans have other channels of watching movies and dramas! ESP WITH SUB!!
      I have my fingers cross for them since dramafever and viki are finally licensing c-dramas. =D =D

      1. me too, I think if they are open to the opportunity and they make quality dramas a cwave could happen. China does need to be open to it and promote it more. I am hopeful with DF, Viki, and this youtube channel adding Eng Subs to some reality shows.
