Entertainment Update: Never Say Goodbye, Starry Sea, Whirlwind Girl 2, Casting News, Trailers

Here comes another Entertainment Update! We are supposed to follow a schedule of Tuesday and Saturday, but it is hard to do so when the c-entertainment world releases so much goodies these days. This one is pretty packed so hope nobody is complaining of overdose :3

Zheng Shuang and Chen Xuedong have been casted in Rush to the Dead Summer by Guo Jingming. After so many months of waiting, we finally have a cast! I am not even surprised to see Chen Xuedong casted in a GJM project, again! Filming will start in July.

A new idol drama called A Fox’s Summer will star Korean actor Kim Taw Hwan and 90s line actress Tan Song Yun:

Really excited for this (not Chinese entertainment) new project! It seems that Korea’s tvN will adapt the popular manhwa The Bride of the Water God. I always really like the drawing style of that manhwa and felt like the costume was similar to Chinese period ones. Hope tvN will do a good job *_*

Getting released on June 30th is Demon Girl starring Li Yitong and Zhang Zhehan. They held a press conference for the occasion. I was scheptical at first (and I still am), but maybe after listening to the new MVs, I should give it a try…

  1. Chen Xuedong is indeed Guo Jingming’s mistress

    It would be better if China adapt The Bride of the Water God, cause tvN aren’t good in adaptations and I assume they will spoil it like it was with couple webtoons they did. Btw after BBJX trailer I don’t want Korea to touch any Chinese material, please it turns in to disaster.

    Can’t take my eyes from Zhu Xian stills ❤

      Isn’t TvN the group behind the Reply series and Liar Game? I think they are a lot more creative than other broadcasting groups from Korea, but I doubt they have the budget to create something as extravagant and beautiful as The Bride of the Water God. I hope they will be able to cast someone well known, that manhwa is famous for the visuals 😛
      I actually think the BBJX-Li trailer isn’t too bad, but I doubt it will live up to the expectations xD

      Zhu Xian as so many baes ❤

        Hmm… Korea do have some good dramas like Rooftop Prince and the Reply Series. They are very short (16 episodes in average) and I used to watch them for fun 😛
        But yes, overall, Chinese dramas have so much more to offer: great variety (not always makjang or overreacting), very interesting plots coming from books, wuxia genre, etc ^^.

    Excited for Old Nine Gates and Zhu Xian. Old Nine Gates is airing very very soon right? I’m so surprised there’s been no promotion for it so far… or for Zhu Xian actually! But I like what I see 🙂
    It also seems that they are promoting Zhao Liying as first female lead, I feel bad for Yang Zi cause she filmed four months longer but also kinda confused. I thought ZLY’s character dies halfway into the story (and she only filmed for a month), so how can she be given more screen time? And the photoshop in the poster is really bad for Yang Zi, there’s a dark shadow/line right where her nose and eye meet. Do you see it? And also for her character still, her face is almost blurry… I don’t like it (so unnecessary)! I wish they didn’t do that, I don’t want ZLY to be involved in a fan war cause of this 😦

      It’s unfortunate for ZLY. Even prior to production, ABB was in talk to play BY. Either actress is more popular, and is the selling power for the drama.

      I’m not too surprised. Often times guest stars get pushed to supporting or get billed first. It’s all about giving them face and recognition.

        Yeah, same with Hollywood movies. A big-name star may appear for like an entire 5 minutes of the 2 hour movie but somehow be first-billed. Unfair, I know…but that’s the way movies/dramas market themselves.

      Hehe, everyone is calling it Old Nine Gates even though it is supposed to be Mystic Nine xD The drama will be released in the second half of July so we should be able to see press conference pictures soon.
      I feel bad for Yang Zi since the drama crew is clearly giving more coverage to Li Yifeng, Zhao Liying and the TFBoys. Hehe, I didn’t see those details in the picture at first :P… I think the whole ZLY vs YZ fanwar has cooled down, but the fans of the video game are boiling of frustration. Zhu Xian is definitely one of the most controversial show of this summer ^^

        Oops, the Mystic Nine is coming out July 4th (this Sunday)! Really soon. The press conference already occurred I think, but from the known actors, only Zhang Yixing attended. William Chan and ZLY weren’t there. There’s a video game? Actually, I did read somewhere that Yang Zi’s character is the top virtual idol in China (but didn’t know this was a game also)

        Yes, her character’s name is Lu Xueqi and is considered as the goddess of Chinese Video Games. So yes, a lot of debate on this topic when they first announced the casting 😛

        As of now, it still says July 4th for the broadcast date so actually this Monday… but, none of the leads have promoted it really?

        I feel bad for Yang Zi. It’s not even that she’s unattractive (to play a goddess), it’s just that when compared to the other Chinese actresses who are really slim, have small faces and features… she looks out of place, but the photoshop is too much. She is still pretty 😛

  3. I love your blog!! I’ve gotten into C entertainment this past year and I’ve been cram watching all the good dramas! There really isn’t enough blogs/sites about C entertainment and it’s not as accessible as k entertainment unfortunaletly. I’m so glad I discovered this blog!!
    On other news, thank god Kim tae hwan isn’t acting another c drama so I don’t need to watch it. Whilst my amazing boyfriend was amazing, his acting wasn’t LOL I only watched it for Wu Qian as she more than made up for it for his bad acting. So excited to see all the upcoming dramas 😀

Ever since we started the blog, I have been able to discover a lot of talented actors and idols who have nothing to lose to the kpop world… it is sad there isn’t more coverage of what they do. If you look at these stills, you would know the quality is clearly up there. Which drama do you like the most so far? 😛

But I’ve since become disenchanted with Kdramas…I dunno…same old characters, same old tropes, etc. Besides you can’t beat these Chinese productions’ budgets. And I miss my wuxia…and the handsome men.

  5. I totally see the need to have more than the usual entertainment updates you guys usually have. You make me feel like checking out half the dramas here! On a side note, there are so many actors starting to produce their own dramas now.

      lol, I also wish we can produce more articles 😛 But it is temporary… when September hits and school term starts again, there would be even less entertainment updates 😦
      Our goal is to make you realize how many awesome dramas there are, you decided to watch them all on your own 😛
      Yes, big names like Nicky Wu and Huang Xiaoming. This is interesting because last year… it was mostly about the movies (Deng Chao, Zhao Wei, Alec Su, He Jiong, etc.)

      • Somehow, I just feel that producing a drama is so much more work and effort and impressive than a movie simply because of the duration of the show. Last year, when I heard about all the movies, I was like ‘oh cool right’. But now I’m like ‘WOW, they are actually capable of doing this too!’ I might be wrong though 😛

      It seems to be the goal nowadays – to have your own production company. It’s easier for actors to transition to behind the scenes since age is catching up to them. But not all producers are successful. I think I’ve only liked Ruby’s dramas thus far. Nicky’s Zu Mountain was such a HUGE miss. 😑

        Ruby is quite successful, her dramas actually have good quality and content, whereas a lot of other celebrity producers count too much on the cast (Nicky Wu, He Jiong, etc)
