Recently, iQiyi’s new show The Rap of China 中国有嘻哈 held a press conference to give us a better understanding of the program — a talent competition which aims to showcase hidden hip hop talents from China and bring the underground culture into the mainstream spotlight. There are four producers on the show: Kris Wu, Wilber Pan, A-Yue (also known as Chang Chen-yue) and MC Hotdog.

Kris Wu is the cover model for the May issue of ELLE! As we have mentioned previously, this ELLE cover is extra special because with this cover, Kris has now officially graced all top 10 women and men’s magazines in China! This news was announced several weeks ago, but today we finally get to see more of the breathtaking photos from the shoot! Look below the cut for your daily dose of Kris~
2017/04/06 Update: I have translated the full interview and included it in this post!
Peter Sheng Yi Lun (Pretty Li Hui Zhen) is confirmed as the male lead of upcoming mega republican era drama Picked Flowers (十里洋场拾年花) and it is expected to air sometime in 2019. The cast includes Ma Su, Chen Zi Han, Bobo Gan, Monica Mu, Pan Chen, Xu Rong Zhen, Qin Hai Lu, Aaron Wang Ming Duo, Li Zong Han, Zhang Tong, Liu Guan Xiang, Lawrence Shi Fan Xi, Zhao Bin, and Ding Qiao.
They are currently filming and from reports, it seems the story will be set in Shanghai during the time period of foreign concessions within the city from 1910 to the 1920’s, focusing on a group of passionate youths who come together to start a revolution…
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:
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
