Entertainment Updates: The King’s Avatar, Legend of Fuyao, Records of the Southern Mist House, Disney Mulan, Idol Producer, FeiTian Award, and magazine shoots

Drama News

The King’s Avatar officially started filming!  Released poster for the characters below. Song Zuer who were previously announced as Su Mucheng dropped out of the drama and the new rumored leading lady is Lai Yumeng, but nothing is confirmed yet.

You can read the translated novel here.

Yang Yang as Ye Xiu

Maggie Jiang as Chen Guo

Li Yu Jie as Tang Rou

This may be long overdue since we haven’t updated much in March but Legend of Fuyao released first trailer starring Yang Mi and Ethan Ruan back in mid March.

Records of Southern Mist House has released a large batch of the two leads’ character posters, bts of the male lead played by Jing Boran, character stills of the supporting cast that includes the amazing Zhao Lixin and the lovely veteran Liu Mintao and absolutely stunning background/scenery stills. At first, I was not feeling Liu Yi Fei‘s outfits, but it grew on me as more pictures were released. The story itself takes a rather somber tone and thus, the darker palette is quite befitting despite the other colorful choice in the manhua (vivid colors are used to capture the attention of readers).

  1. I’m beginning to think of the Mulan live action as more of an adaption if anything. Tho if they add the witch there’s less need to be historically relevant, not that the original was accurate or anything. I’m loving the movie cast, if anything it will be a powerhouse movie. Now all we need is a substantial plot.

    LYF’s drama keeps giving me xxxholic vibes, not in a bad way just somehow similar. I watched the video of the bts in making the temple/palace of the drama and it looks absolutely stunning. They’ve got Jing Fei Niang Niang (Liu Min Tao) which just makes me super happy. In a way I can see LYF aging gracefully like her in the future haha.

    Thanks for all the updates, love the fashion ones too. Angelababy is such a stunner in editorials and goddess FBB, nothing more to be said.

    2. Yeah, idk why they just keep adding new characters and I think he’s technically Mushu?? At this point, we don’t deserve this movie and Im scared they’ll ruin it. BUT If anything I’d love it is Eddie Peng played Shang! His smile gets me every time lol

    3. There is no Li Shang in the remake. The love interest is called Li Hong Hui, a fellow soldier who considers Mulan his rival in the army. When he finds out that Mulan’s a woman, his feelings turn to love. It’s in the casting call.
