Celebrity News

Kris Wu caught holding hands with a woman! After further searching, netizens have found that she is a student attending Beijing Film Academy and goes by the name of Luna. She is a young internet celebrity and had a small role in Story of Yan Xi. There was also a video leaked of her chatting with Kris Wu on her phone (don’t know how it was filmed, but it was clearly Kris Wu on the phone). However, she has spoken up and denied that they are dating.

Thai actor Push Puttichai Kasetsin gets mistaken by fans as Wang Yi Bo. With Wang Yi Bo and Xiao Zhan holding a fan meeting in Bangkok for The Untamed, many fans who attended mistook him as the C-actor and asked to take pictures of him. It must’ve been a lot because he took it to social media to politely joke about the accident.

Wang Yuan heads off to UC-Berkley with a new haircut.

Young actor Qi Pei Xin gets caught in a messy controversy. He garnered attention after playing Jin Ling in The Untamed. However, just after getting popular, his ex-girlfriend openly accuses him of being emotionally abusive, cheating on her, and even denying being the father of her baby. The actor hasn’t denied anything, but actually spoke up and apologized.

Jin Chen was caught together with Jeffrey Tung, from Idol Producer a few weeks ago. However, despite both sides neither denying or confirming their relationship, Jin Chen recently posted on Instagram that makes netizens think that, if the two were dating, they might have broken up! Jeffrey Tung also commented on the post, too! But nothing has been confirmed yet!!!

Liu Shi Shi shares a picture of her son.

Victoria Song’s contract with South Korea’s SM entertainment recently expired and the C-actress has decided not to renew her contract with them. It’s not surprising since she has been in China in the past recent years doing drama after drama and probably hasn’t stepped foot in South Korea in a while. 10 years ago, Victoria Song debuted in f(x), a South Korean girl group under SM Entertainment alongside four other girls, Krystal Jung, Amber Liu, Sulli, and Luna. The group was very popular, but stopped promoting within recent years. But even though she won’t be a K-pop star anymore, Victoria Song has a pretty successful career in China. She’s always participating in variety shows and her acting career is really picking up.

NRTA recently announced that they are planning to enforce C-dramas to reduce the number of episodes. As C-drama fans, we all know that they can get quite long (up to 70 episodes!). While I’m not usually a fan of NRTA, I actually support this new rule. As a C-drama fan, sometimes dramas tend to get draggy and prolong unnecessary side stories. Hopefully this new rule will help C-drama actually develop better storylines for their dramas.

  1. Yes! Hardworking Yingbao is back again, she’s got 2 dramas lined up already..a costumed drama with Wang Yibo and a modern drama by director Zheng Xiaolong. So excited that we’ll get to see her with something new!

  2. I believe Wang Yuan is attending Berklee College of Music

    As for the NRTA 40 episodes count, think it will work quite well for modern dramas. I do think some production might try to work around it by having multiple seasons…
    For historical dramas, might be a good or bad thing. For a drama that has a storyline like Nirvana in Fire, 40 episodes are not sufficient. However, If you get something like Tribes and Empire, yes please cut the count lol.
    I do worry this will affect dramas that haven’t air yet that fall under the xianxia, wuxia, and palace categories. Production would have to scramble to cut out scenes >.<

  3. Depends on how NRTA enforces episode count. Industry insiders have complained that these “new” censors are party bureaucrats who know nothing about films and TV dramas. If they just go, “Cut this out because it is bad for the youth. Cut that out because it doesn’t depict the correct social values.”, we end up with draggy and incoherent dramas.

    1. Yes, I agree! I also don’t know how strict they are with regulating dramas. So many dramas that have been filmed years ago haven’t even been aired yet. For example, I know the relationship between South Korea and China is very shakey, but it’s affected all dramas that star any K-actors and K-actresses. I would’ve loved to see Braveness of the Ming with Park Min Young and Zhang Han, but who knows when that’ll air.
