Yang Yang and Liu Yi Fei’s movie adaption of the novel Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms held a press conference yesterday and finally released a 1 minute 51 second trailer (much longer than the teaser they’ve been teasing us with lol)! The cast looks wonderful, as does the CGI. This will be one gorgeous movie! I can’t wait for July 21st to come so we can see Once Upon a Time (三生三世十里桃花) in theaters!
ELLE magazine revealed it’s cover for the month of May today, and the featured star is none other than the incredibly popular young actor/singer Kris Wu. This comes as big news because it officially marks his completion of having graced the covers of all top 10 women and men’s magazines in China in less than 2 years and 3 months!
A summary of Kris’ achievements:
- 1st male celebrity to be on the cover of Vogue
- 1st male celebrity to appear on the covers of all top 5 women’s magazines
- 1st male celebrity born after 1985 on the covers of all top 5 men’s magazines
- 1st celebrity to grace the covers of all top 10 women & men’s magazines
And a quote that I feel speaks volumes as to why this twenty-six year old is so successful today: “There are many things, if you don’t pursue yourself, other people wouldn’t care. You must do it yourself, in order to do it well. For example, I want to sleep too. But, once I sleep, an entire day’s time would have passed,” — Kris Wu in the May issue of ELLE
Take a closer look at his magazine covers below (I had only included one from each of the top 10 magazines)! Which one is your favorite?
The Flame’s Daughter (烈火如歌) held it’s booting ceremony today with the cast and crew in attendance. Main leads Dilraba Dilmurat and Vic Zhou were in costume looking happy and relaxed. I’m starting to think Dilraba has chemistry with all her co-stars (lol hopefully I don’t jinx this)! For more information on the story and characters, you can find it in my last post: here 😉
I saw several updates about Yang Mi today and I thought it’d be easier to compile them all together instead of making separate posts for each one! Please look under the cut for news and photos of our favorite Mi Mi!
Of all the new dramas airing in April, this is definitely the one I’m most interested in! The Hypnotist (被催眠的催眠师) stars Yang Le and Zhu Yan Man Zi as the main leads. Together, they will work to solve a number of mysterious cases with the help of hypnosis. The drama will be airing on Sohu TV on April 13th. Koala Liu Si Han sings the theme song ‘Dream’, and an exciting music video just dropped, giving us a sneak peek to some of the scenes from the drama! Check it out!
Actresses Liu Yi Fei and Zhao Li Ying were both featured in various photo spreads this month and coincidentally wore the same outfits several times, leading to comparison posts on weibo. But, the general consensus is they’re both beautiful and give off different vibes, with Liu Yi Fei displaying the aura of a goddess (Bai Qian, anyone? lol) and Zhao Li Ying looking like an adorable princess. So, it’s a visual feast for the eyes. I can’t even decide who wore it better! Take a look at the pictures below and just appreciate the pretty!
Modern cooking themed drama Kiss, Love, and Taste (亲·爱的味道) just released a new set of colorful character posters featuring the cast of Lu Yi, Amber Kuo, Aaron Yan, Ai Xiao Qi, and Li Sha Min Zi! The 30 episode drama was shot in Shanghai and is a lighthearted romantic comedy focusing on the various challenges Wen Yuyu (Lu Yi) and Jin Jinjin (amber Kuo) face as they cook to show the world the specialty of Chinese cuisine.
Rachel Mao Xiao Tong is pretty like a flower fairy for one photo shoot, and then changes things up a bit by going for an edgier look in the next fashion spread with CeCi, while Yuan Shan Shan is featured on the April cover of Modern Lady giving off cool retro vibes, and Chen Qiao En is absolutely gorgeous for OK! magazine! Check out these ladies’ beautiful pictures below!
Dilraba Dilmurat and Vin Zhang Bin Bin just wrapped up filming The King’s Women two weeks ago. But, they will be collaborating for the 5th time in upcoming novel-to-drama adaption The Flame’s Daughter (烈火如歌) by Ming Xiao Xi. Along with Dilraba Dilmurat and Zhang Bin Bin, the two other confirmed leading actors are Vic Zhou and Liu Rui Lin. The story follows Ru Ge (Dilraba Dilmurat) and her complicated relationship with the three men she’s destined to cross paths with in a heart wrenching tale of love and inevitable hate… Look under the cut for more detailed character introductions! It sounds quite depressing tbh 🙁
The drama starring Cheney Chen, Zheng Shuang, and Bai Jing Ting released more stills of the cast in school uniforms! As mentioned previously, Rush to the Dead Summer (夏至未至) is adapted from Guo Jing Ming’s novel of the same name. The story spans over a period of ten years, following a close group of high school friends who drift apart after graduation and go their separate ways as they transition into adulthood.
