There is a small controversy to talk about as well as some more positive ones. Trailers and stills got released even more and we have some interesting casting news.
New controversy for Lost Tomb/Time Raiders… Well well well, apparently Jing Boran and Luhan‘s companies are in a feud right now. I don’t really understand completely, but let me explain what I read. Jing Boran’s company published on May 8th that they are unhappy with the multiple online rumors saying that JBR used dirty measures to get the role (? or do something that now causes a bad image to Jing Boran) and says those rumors are spread by Luhan’s company. They want to start a lawsuit. Luhan’s company responded the next day saying that this is all petty talk and they only want to the best for the final product…
In the movie, Luhan takes Li Yifeng‘s role Wu Xie and Jing Boran takes Yang Yang‘s role Kylin. Oh well, with how messy the drama adaptation with Li Yifeng and Yang Yang ended up becoming, I think that we can’t really blame the actors, but only the bad management of the companies involved. Anyhow, the trailer got released so enjoy ^^

Yoona and Ma Tianyu‘s new cdrama 三途 Three Ways just announced the second male lead to be Yoona’s labelmate Kangta. This means the heavy involvement of SM Entertainment in this production which, in my opinion, sounds like bad news…
Korean actor Jang Dong-gun is well-known in China after filming A Gentleman’s Dignity. After a drama hiatus of four years (he did do many movies though), he will partner up with C-actress Tang Yixin for a new drama 《我曾爱过你，想起就心酸》I Used to Love You, the Thought Makes Me Sad. They will start shooting on May 24th, 2016.
Alec Su is producing a new movie called 《嫌疑人X的献身》Suspect X’s Devotion and will cast Wang Kai as a physicist and Zhang Lu Yi will play a genius mathematician.
OMG YES! I had been waiting years for Zhang Yishan to lead his own drama. Ok, this is a webdrama, but still! Silly and funny Zhang Yishan is most well known for his role as Liu Xing in the sitcom Family With Kids. He also did a cameo last year in Mr.Six. Great to see him getting lead role this time. ^^ Webdrama 余罪 My Sin starring Zhang Yishan should be released on IQiyi this month, May 23rd.
New Xu Jinglei movie Battle of Memories starring Huang Bo will have a first Festival of Cannes screening. It should be released for mainland in December 2016.

Little Sheep Lay donated One Million RMB, which is about 153 000 US Dollar to his alma mater (his high school) as well as a piano. He says it is to thank them for supporting him when he was younger to pursue his dreams and talents, saying “当时我在学校成绩并不好，但学校一直支持我发展特长。” [Trans: I didn’t have good grades in school, but the school supported me to develop my specialties]. It is not easy to donate so it is nice he is doing it and have a deeper personal meaning behind it. Teachers must be proud.
This week’s Run Brother will invite the Korean Running man team, and later in the month, Song Jongki. Probably these episodes are ones you want to catch if you are a fan of the original show! Also, Song Jongki went on Happy Camp and the episode should be released next next week. 😉
