Entertainment Update: Sweet Sixteen, Gui Zhong Mei Ren, Demon Girl

… Yes, an early release of the Entertainment Update 🙂 Because there is too much information. ^^

Wondering which dramas and celebrities came on top of the rankings this week? With the finale episode coming up, The Interpreters receives the most viewers on television, followed by To Be a Better Man. On Weibo, the three dramas creating the most hype are To Be a Better Man, Yu Zui and With You. Finally, the most popular actor is Lay, followed by Yang Mi, Chen Xuedong, Zhang Yishan and Huang Xun.

As of June 22nd, Kris Wu officially requested a lawsuit against Xiao G Na for defamation of character for 220 thousand RMB. This probably means the two knows each other; otherwise, the lawsuit would have been for “false claim” (what is the legal term for this?). If you are curious about what is happening with this whole situation, @Lia posted in the comment section a lot of information. High likely, the girl knows Kris and tried to use him to debut as a celebrity (:”D I will not comment on this).

New drama The Fated General will start filming in July 2016. It will star Zhang Ruoyun and Ji Changwook. Sounds like Ji Changwook wants to stay in China a bit longer…

  1. I was like… are we Saturday yet?! But agree, this entertainment update is so ready to be released! First of all, now that To Be A Better Man, Les Interpretes and Yu Zui ended, I wonder who will be more popular in dramaland. Unless everyone decides to wait for Ice Fantasy/Zhu Xian this July. Sweet Sixteen is such a dark drama compared to the stills… I want to check out That Crazy Little Thing. Finally, Huang Xiaoming+ABB is such a strong visual couple *__*

        If I remember correctly, the main character, portrayed by Kris Wu, saw his parents die and couldn’t move from the hidden spot for hours. As he grew older, he develops feelings for the caring older Lu Shan whom he sees as a “mother”. She already has a boyfriend, Hangeng but one evening is raped by a stranger. Kris decides to revenge her. :”D It is so dark… right?

    Kris sued for defamation and slander not invasion of privacy, please correct it.

    They probably do know each other but I doubt they are dating because that slut has a boyfriend around the same time she claimed to date Kris and she deleted all the pictures of her boyfriend from her social media ever since she pulled this stunt. Why would she delete pictures of her real boyfriend if she’s innocent?

    And last but not least, she released Professional pictures yesterday from a photo shoot she done in May when she was supposedly “heartbroken”. Don’t you think that’s some sort of ulterior motive already?

    So yes I hope Kris wins this lawsuit because all this girl wanted was her 15 seconds of fame. I mean if you’re someone’s ex….why are you trying so hard to prove it?

      Heyyyyy >< sorry I didnt see your message sooner… I will add it to the article asap. The girl probably did something wrong and pissed Kris (why sue her when the whole thing is cooling down?). Kris has every right to sue and I hope G Na does not gain anything from this whole affair.

      P.s. I wasn't able to find the correct translation of the legal terms and was hoping someone in the comment sections can correct me, so thanks!

    Is Ji Chang Wook really going to be in The Fated General/General of the Flying Cavalry? I saw posts on Weibo naming other cast members besides title role being played by Zhang Ruoyun i.e. Alan Yu, Victor Huang…and guest stars like Wu Xiao Bo, Hu Jun, Yang Shuo. Filming to start July 25. Drama team supposedly made up of those who worked on dramas such as Black Fox, Snow Leopard, Nirvana in Fire, Disguiser, Legend of Chu & Han, New Three Kingdoms, Ni Shui Han, Ode to Joy

    Like

    • Hi there! I read the same information as you, but only registered in my brain that the leads are Zhang Ruoyun and Ji Changwook. From my source, Changwook is starring as lead, but I mean, until we get to July 25th, we cannot know for sure who will stay in the final line-up 😛 Apparently it is supposed to be a big budget drama, but I will wait to see the stills to judge. 😛 If they are hiring the team behind Nirvana in Fire and the Three Kingdoms, then it will probably be a hit! :O

      • creidesca says:

        According to weibo posts (from all the way back in March when Zhang Ruoyun’s name became attached to the drama and now), producer/director is 张健 (Black Fox, Snow Leopard, New Snow Leopard), screenwriter is 温豪杰 (The Ordinary World, Ni Shui Han, New Water Margin), director of photography 郭增友 (Nirvana in Fire, Family on the Go, Battle of Changsa), art director 王贻涛 (New Shanghai Bund, New Three Kingdoms, Legend of Chu & Han), costumes 茹美琪 (Nirvana in Fire, The Disguiser, The Ordinary World), lighting direction 孙红良 (Nirvana in Fire, Family on the Go, Battle of Changsa)…

        Another weibo post lists Zhang Ruoyun as Huo Qubing , Li Nian as Wei Zifu, Wu Xiubo as 赵严, Hu Jun as 大单于, Pan Taiming as Wei Qing, 钟雷 as Ichise Chanyu, Alan Yu as Li Gan.

      • creidesca says:

        from watching several of producer/director 张健’s projects (namely Black Fox, Snow Leopard, New Snow Leopard–all war dramas), should Ji Chang Wook be casted in this drama, he will certainly need to be speaking Chinese and not Korean when doing his dialogue because in the dramas I mentioned when a Chinese actor portrayed a Japanese who spoke Japanese, the actor/actress had to speak in Japanese. They still dub over his/her voice with someone who is more fluent in Japanese, but at least the lip movements match the voice. I believe the majority of the veteran actors I listed in the post below, as well as Zhang Ruoyun, at one point or another have worked with the director/producer on a previous drama project.

      • It would be indeed a shame if a Korean actor who doesn’t fit the story was casted just because of the “Hallyu” wave. Also, as a Korean actor, why film so many dramas at once? If I was a producer, I would wait for some of his projects to get released before casting him too. Hope he doesn’t mess up this adaptation then!

        Doesn’t look like the drama has started filming yet; they’re still building the set from weibo pics. However, they’ve confirmed/reconfirmed several cast members: Li Hongyi as Zhao Ponu, Yang Shuo as 郝命, Victor Huang Weide as Emperor Wu of Han, Pan Taiming as Wei Qing. Not sure if I’m understanding one of the posts, but drama team is apparently releasing the names of the cast members hidden in poem?

I am not sure if they will just adapt from the 2014 drama or they will shoot something new… They apparently started the shooting in March, but I honestly had no idea. It should be released for 2017. Also, no idea if Renny Harlin is attached to this project…

    • Totally agree. I love anticipating for dramas and then watch them as they air, so I try to follow the release schedule. It is a shame it rarily corresponds to the final release date (especially this summer)…
      Undercover looks so fun! Sadly I know no one acting in it so I will wait for it to get trending online before checking it out for myself ^^
