There’s fangirling talented hotties, then there’s fangirling Yuan Hong.
And this Chen Kun gif is again perfection and perfect for illustrating my state of mind:
or this on the money Yuan Hong gif:
The Tianya thread (which I surprisingly agree with almost every suggested casting by the threadmistress) for the upcoming Yumama patented PoC RoCH is a fun ‘passionate’ snarky playground of everything goes. The fact it’s wuxia (big deal in Cdramaland), a Louis Cha wuxia (even bigger freaken deal), and LC’s Return of Condor Heroes (Mother of all BIG F Deals), everything is dissected and jabbed under the fangirl/boy hawkeyes, esp when it comes to casting the most romantic wuxia hero ever and the prettiest fantasy ideal of beauty ever flying in the wuxia air, esp Yang Guo since fangirls r scarier batty creatures when it comes to their dreamiest man EVER.
SO, any actor popping up there, there is at least an ugly rant spitting all over him, not my Yuan Hong. *sobbb me so proud*
It’s understandable how devastated this remake will be in the hands of Yumama fr the likes of his Swordsman. Any rant on it being loyal to the novel will be falling on deaf dead Yumama ears. BUT the fact he’ll most probably plant his ‘muse’ Yuan ShanShan as the ultimate definition of feminine beauty is understandably distressing, and he’s already shouted out loud it’ll be his boy muse Chen Xiao as YangGuo. I’m nonchalantly fine with it, as with anything with YMM attached. I just dun fking care no more. So why are ppl even bringing up YH even for comfort’s sake? I have no idea…till I read this cap of the thread where random fangirls r screaming WANNTTTTT!! GIMMEGIMMEGIMME! some delurked and post just to support the YY casting of YH as YG. *TEARS* I’m a proud fangirl on cloud nine because there is no freaken bigger recognition ever IF you get ONE YG casting endorsement by its harshest fans, let alone a slew. *SOBSOBSOB*
Fr that excerpt above:
‘I’m dropping by just for YH alone. If he’s YG, no matter who is going to be XLN, I’ll be watching. He’s too handsome in periods! Amongst the current crop of actors, there are only a rare handful close to his gorgeousness in periods. During the LoCH watch, I absolutely ignored HG and stared at him and only him. Too bad he still hasnt hit it big, poor guy!’
YH MUST BE YG! MUST!
If it’s really YH as YG, I’ll watch it if that b8tch YSS is the XLN!!!!
*ARGH! I mined the visual in my head and #@$@% FFS too damningly unwatchable! I’m sorry for your suffering YH~!)!!!*
‘….if YH is YG, even if the scariest thing of Yumama as XLN, I can watch YH while puking for the other stuff on my screen. I can’
And if you ask my opinion (I’ve significantly cooled down my wuxia blood, and my screaming fangirl of Louis Cha ie my longest fangirling obsession):
YESEEEEEE PLEASE! Yumama, I’ll be your slave and will watch every min of your past and present crap till the day you stop crapping. There is NO better YG atvm, he’s the perfect perfect balance EVER with the exact right looks and the serious acting chops, ie his advantage to all the other prior YGs, to rise above the miasma of WTFery that is a Yumama production.
I mean if u r still reading this, unless u r blind, you DO rem how HAWT he was as the fallen into the evil firespitting pit poor rich boy Yang Kang?! DO U REM THAT RIP YOUR HEART AND TEARDUCTS OUT ENDING?! Don’t you think we owe him, in some warped but perfect fangirl logic to give Loverboy another chance redeeming himself as his own lovechild with his NianChi/his ShiShi and to put the lofty ideals laid upon the name of his son Yang Guo ( ie make right your mistake)?!?!?!?!?!?!
This is all YY, the possibilty of this happening is ZILT, but for Loverboy to get unanimous recognition and LURVE from random netizens, esp the harsh and snarky ones at Tianya ie where it counts and most genuine?! *________* Beyond precious! My fangirlLife’s complete.
