Smart lads and still ever so tightknit, rather than waiting for whatever TR is up to with the much rattled BBJX2, the princes and RX are off doing their collabs and being as lovely and awesome bromancing each other on weibo. I sincerely hope this brotherhood will last till we are all in nursing homes.
Prince 8 and Prince 13 are confirmed to be united in 华胥引, it’ll be filming in Elephant Mt Studios January. *SQUEEEEE* I know I’ve been yelping about Loverboy no end but I’m beyond excited and I never am this early with a Cdrama. Not just these 2 hotties got my votes for best performances out of the princes in BuBu on top of being in my manrem, 华胥引 is soooo rabidly loved by so many of my RL friends and fam I’m literally finishing up my other silly pleasures and making time to delve into the deep end. I’ve read from the get go of the rumor of the leaked synopsis of each ep a while back. Spoilerphobe me haven’t really taken a look, esp on sth I’m much anticipating, but word is it’s a travesty of the source material, I doubt a drama which has not even started shooting be sticking to the guns on some synopsis already leaked out. Nonetheless, I’m betting on KC really, he seems to be most astute on picking his projects post BuBu, of a certain quality and not wasting his feathers now he’s finally made it (and can’t afford to waste time on too many duds). To add on my excitement, out of all the rumored actresses, I got someone I adore so very much atvm, it is truly beyond my dream. Normally I stay away from casting rumors and such because there is always sth aggravating me, I get some, I lose some. I can save my torrents of vitriol till the end product is out, but I have Jiang Xin here. OMGOMGOMGOMG!! I’m in a disbelief with KCxYH already, I can’t wait for the synergy of their awesome, it’s hard to come by actors these days who have enough talent AND more rare to have the genuine passion to work hard at challenging himself. Now I have Jiang Xin, who is absolutely the most perfect package I’ve seen in Cdramaland for years if not the last decade! If this is a dream, I’m not waking up. Seriously.
And the fun has already begun! We have KC and YH confirmed and rumors running amok on the lucky lucky actress working with them. Prince 10 (RL bf of JX) went on and recommended ‘himself’ who can be such a pretty pretty girl with pics to prove:
lolzzzz to which JX pouts at him, ‘we are from the same root, why the inner fighting!?’
For all we know, Prince 10 has collaborated with Nicky and Han Dong after BBJX, he’s especially close to Prince 9 Han Dong, who is causing his own lovely storms in fandom with his solid acting and pretty pretty stature, appearing as scene-stealing characters in work after work after work. Mark my words, he’ll be the only watchable thing in both Swordsman (out in Feb5) and DemiGodsSemiDevils. HD is filming DGSD in Elephant Mountain currently, hopefully he’ll still be there when Loverboy arrives!
KKB must have an eye for pretty, looking at HanDong so lovingly. I think proper OTP chemistry in DGSD is hopeless *coughfuglyactressesclothesetcetcetccough*, lets bet on the bromance front. He’s the only pretty thing around in all honesty:
A few days ago, when Loverboy tweeted his very first bts pic of his face fr the set of Young Det. Dee as ’emperor…’, it so happens HD also tweeted a few moments later with the message: ‘ I’ll serve and fight for you my entire life!’ Of course it’s in the context of his current Qing Yumama PoS , but how apropos!
The drama Prince 9 and 10 worked together was #1 in cable during its broadcast, it looks inane but mindless fun. To congrat his bros, YH sent them a patpatpat tweet, reminding them of some inside joke/promise of skinny dipping and treating him dinner if the ratings is #1. Prince 10 Ye ZuXin made a wordplay on ‘#1 in rating’ @ Han Dong, impling Prince 9 is the queen of ratings. Han Dong is a prankster himself, he jokes back he is the rating king himself and the rating queen in Ye.
This is what Prince 9 tweeted 13 for his birthday….yup, it’s a topless pic of himself!
Han Dong may be the ‘Venomous Snake 9’ in BuBu, but in real life he is a boisterous sweetheart. Lest we forget, he’s also the poor Li Gan in Da Mo Yau (IF it’s ever gonna be aired) with ShiShi (and the other Loverboy’s long time bromantic lover Eddie):
He also tweeted Annie Liu, wishing her happy birthday with the only pic they took together, so pretty!
He visited Nicky on his set with 14. In a tweet, Nicky the big bro hollers for 10, 13 even his ‘rival’ 8 and of course his OTP RX to visit him as well! Hoping they can all work together in a project in the future! How precious! Lin GengXin is rumored to be leaving TR for greener pastures with the biggest C management HuaYi Brothers in a few months, he is romancing Ruby Lin at the moment in Drama GoGoGo, but Ruby is now on set for Young Detective Dee and from fan report just shot an intimate scene with Loverboy last night (fr a redbeanie on set, it seems to be a kiss, but as their heads are closing in, Loverboy halts it saying it’s not how they kissed last time and Ruby has to move her head back and NG…lolz when I think most guys will just smooch first and NG later)
But Prince 9 and 10 are of the Prince8 Gang, they visited KC on his set too:
Our RuoXi is venturing into movieland lately, she is filming a modern romance at the helm of PD Ip, the same PD directing Ad Mania and is chummy with YH. The HongShi shippers are already flexing their muscles nudging lady PD to invent a cameo or what not for Loverboy, there is no way he won’t slurp it up. I think the movie is shooting at Elephant Mt or that vicinity? He will be conveniently there ANYWAY!!!
LSS on the set, looking mightily like her Zhang Xiao from BBJX:
TangRen has officially filed the paperwork for greenlighting ‘BBJX2’ , it has a cheesy title of Bu Bu Jing Qing (Startling Steps in Love?). It is a modern drama:
Zhang Xiao is a southerner, who moved to Beijing working as an OL, with dreams of romance and a stable job. By coincidence, she gets a job at a dot.com conglomerate ‘zhen tian’ (Thunderous Sky). Like all newbies, she’s bullied and stepped on, the saving grace is her boss Yin Zheng likes her, as she gets the hang of it, she and Yin Zheng develops mutual feelings for each other, just when a gentle, considerate guy Kang XiHang steps into Zhang’s world. Yin Zheng, Kang XiHang both are fore-runners next in line inheriting the firm. Zhang is twirled into the eye of the corporate battles. After twists and turns, Zhang finally realizes where her heart is at, and bravely chooses to spend her future with her true love.
Argh. Can it be more mediocre and cliched?!
