Drama News

Story of Minglan with leads of Zhao Liying and Feng Shao Feng, released behind the scenes stills! I really like the lightning here as it makes the clothing palette less jarring.

Two new stills of the leads Tang Song Yun and Allen Ren Jia Lun for their drama Beneath the Embroidered Uniform.

The two leads Ni Ni and Chen Kun wrapped up their filming for The Rise of Phoenixes which totaled to 196 days (omg). The two leads were in tears after wrapping up and Chen Kun thanked Ni Da Hong for showing up to their wrap-up celebrating even though he  already finished filming.

Celebrity News

Gao Zi Qi and his wife Chae Rim welcome their baby boy on December 12 ❤ Congratulations to the lovely couple~

The charismatic Dai Si for Instyle China~

Mark Chao and Yang Mi promoting for their Chinese New Year 2018 campaign with H&M China.

For every year Sina would select what they considered ten outstanding actors and actresses for the “Most Beautiful Performances” films. Of those 10, three of them included Ni Ni, Huang Xuan, and Zhao Liying. I’ve added their quotes in the teasers, please excuse any inaccuracies 😩

Here for Ni Ni, they tease photos of her Best Performance film portion.

“To be able to let the audience forget who you are, and when I’m her, I forget who I am. That is my understand of the most beautiful performance.” – Ni Ni

“I think that as long as you perform with your heart and have trust in your character, then the character’s charm will accentuate. That is what I feel is the most beautiful performance.” – Zhao Liying

“I think the best performance is not when you are performing. It’s when you forget that you’re acting. You become hypnotized by the story and your feelings will show. Such moment cannot be replicated.” – Huang Xuan

  1. Thanks for the update! Nirvana 2 just started and it is impressing me so far.
    Smart marketing to get YM and MC together. It bothers me that LGX and ZLY have like two ads together but they never have a photoshoot together -_-
