Zhang Yixing is changing his team. He is reported to be signing with the same company as Zhao Liying, Hairun.
Happy Birthday to Huang Xuan. Hopefully Tribes and Empires will air soon.
The writer for The Mystic Nine and The Lost Tomb, Xu Lei, announced that he finished working on a reality show called 72th floors of Mystery. It will air on Hunan. It will be an original story adventure reality show. Guests will enter the 72th floors of mystery, which is a massive building, to explore mysterious rooms and also travel to all parts of the country. The show will expose the audience to a variety of traditional Chinese cultural practices. Wu YiFan and Simon Yam are confirmed as cast member. It is reported that William Chan and Lin GengXin were also invited.
Ruby Lin makes her first public appearance since giving birth and she looks great.
Joe Chen recently attended an event, where she wore a baggy dress. Well this led to online speculations that she was either pregnant or fat. “Joe Chen fat” trended for a long time. She responded that she is so light that she can be blown away, which I agree with. It was just a very unflattering dress.
Zhao Liying commented on her post “O…” this is in throwback to a couple of months ago where Zhao Liying commented on a Joe Chen’s post that she also sometimes had a V face and Joe Chen joked that who was she kidding she is an O. I am glad to see they have a good relationship to be jocking on weibo.
Mark Chao‘s popularity from Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms keeps rising. It is reported that he was offered 800 million yuan in movie deals. And a large number of fans have been following him to airports and restaurants. Security has had to escort him multiple times.
He can still be seen giving autographs and trying to please his fans. But I do hope it calms down a bit since it is probably overwhelming.
Zhao Liying posted a message on weibo about not selling ourselves short . It is speculated to be in response to fan complains about Hunan’s schedule for Princess Agents, which is abysmal. I don’t know if you guys remember that last year Hunan butchered Chusen and Ice Fantasy’s schedule, which did not help their causes. Well they are doing the same this year.
Talking about Legend of Chusen, its second season just started airing on TV in China. It was trending during its release. Ice Fantasy is also releasing a sequel, Ice Fantasy Destiny, but near the end of the year.
Yonhap News reported that domestic video sites in China have stopped broadcasting Korean dramas, and some television stations are no longer inviting Korean artists to participate in their program or TV series. This means that all those dramas that were already filmed will be shelved until never. This is in response to THAAD.
Rebellious Youth with Rachel Mao and Alan Yu released some promotional posters. It is a drama about two people who exchange identities to experience the lives of each other. I don’t think it will have any romance, it seems more about youth and growing up. This will be their first lead role, about time.
First trailer for Operation Love with Zhang Yixing and Chen DuLing. For some reason the sound doesn’t work well. Here is another link.
Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms becomes the first cdrama to reach 30 billion views online. Congrats to everyone! It deserves it.
