Dili Reba and Zhang Vin are the leads for The King’s Woman. Dili Reba plays is the grand-daughter and disciple of a military commander. But she is so beautiful that she attracts the attention of the Qin Emperor, Zhang Vin, and she is captured and sent to his palace. Where they slowly fall in love.

Princess Agents with Zhao Liying and Lin Gengxin announced their broadcast schedule. It will start airing July 17 every Monday and Tuesday and then it will change in mid September to Monday through Wednesday. It is projected to finish airing in October. I think Hunan never learns. Most other networks are doing two episodes per day at least four times a week with great results.

Mark Chao had a live chat with fans as a celebration of reaching 10 million weibo followers. It was trending last night on Weibo. I have not seen it, but I will leave it here in case anyone wants to see it.

Zhang Lu Chi and Zhang Yan Yan both denied the accusation and stated that they are only friends.
