  1. Regarding 72 floors of mystery. I saw William Chan on 1st episode. Is he only guest star for 1st episode? It’s sad that he is not a permanent star for the rest of the episodes. I was wondering why 😦


  2. OMG @ that picture of Wang Zi Wen. She looks so different with long hair. And she looks like she’s about 12 when she was 20 years old.


              1. I have higher hopes for DF just cause they’ve been licensing so many right now. there hasn’t been any news at all for season 2 on viki…


  3. they are sooo cute. He kept looking at her ❤
    Zhao Liying looks so small next to Kris and Leo. I am still sad that WC won’t be on the show, but probably for the best to avoid all those rumors. Reporters were trying to start ZLY-WYF ships but they both crushed them lol.


    1. hahaha she does! She looks 5″2 there even though wiki said she’s 5″5.
      I have a feeling that the show will try to start a ship out of the two of them too.


  4. Lol. It’s considered one of the better looking ones when you compared it to other dresses at the Met Gala. *cough Rhihana and Kate Perry cough*


  5. The Dragon pearl reminds me of Huan Zhu Get Ge to some point but more wuxia orientated.

    I wanna burn Yang Mi’s dress, cause this piece of evil shouldn’t be on her. This gown is horrendous.

    1. There were so many ugly dresses that night, but yea, what the hell were they thinking putting her in that dress? what the hell was she thinking looking in the mirror and still leaving the room with that on?
