What did I do?!? I’m not worthy. All the glossy C magazines ganged up and decide to cover EVERY ONE of my C pretties. Loverboy in 4 (or 5) Feb issues alone. These are my absolute favorites.

Fan Bingbing: every set of her pics (and she must be the most photographed C actress atm) I can find one I can’t look away, this set is the one she’s biting the peach
CHEN! KUN! Ngl, everytime I see CK being dapper I have to rub my eyes and unsee Leslie(T___T) The one he smokes! *_____* I’m anticipating FBB and HXM’s Bride with White Hair, but in the back of my mind if CK is cast instead, it would be so much yummier!!! And Master WKW, what are you doing next decade!? Can you just consider putting CK under your lens?!? PRETTY PLEASSSEEEEEE?!?!?!
Liu ShiShi and HuGe: I love SS in the first one, lately I think her peeps are trying too hard to give her an edgier or more mature image when I think the laughing without a care simple SS is her greatest allure.
Not too fond of the spread of Zhou Xun this month (the cover is horrible unless the theme is pinkzombiebride, I would think they would want us to want this pink Chanel number (same one Tang Wei donned in her spread below) but no freaken way. However the following pic takes my breath away:
Tang Wei: Effortless and so on the money in what they are trying to do: for a minute I wanna buy shorts and linen shirts and jump into a pool (and I’m still hugging my downs)
Zhao Wei: lady are you sure you wanna focus on behind the lens?! I crave her being drop dead gorgeous on screen, but she just never wanna.
Supermodel Emma Pei 裴蓓, if I’m a bride again, I would soooo salivate after every piece of these garments.
SongJia: still my fav C drama actress. Her face is subtle and classic enough to blend in with an almost plain, quiet, understated beauty.
My fav TVB hottie: Bosco
Han Dong: argh, the clothes r giving me rashes and itches!!!! but gosh this is the best constructed face in current Cdramaland. It is blasphemy of me to check out Swordsman (ie Yumama’s fanfic of Smiling Proud Wanderer) in the first place but worst yet for the characters of rapist Tian (and the very pretty Chen Xiao in drag or…less of man) but he is possibly the only one of the leads that can act himself out of that miasma of Yumama shitload.
Rhydian Vaughn: I actually am impressed with him the most in Girlfriend, Boyfriend. Somehow he has a control over how charismatic he can be on screen being true to a character instead of prioritizing in fandom sating. There is something very direct with his acting that is easy to connect with as an audience and I can always look past his gorgeous Eurasian surface because he’s opposite of too conscious. never caught up in his own looks (two of my biggest gripes in too many TW younger actors these days esp) and tap into the authenticity of character he’s portraying, after which he lets the nuances of the character seep through inconspicuously. When I watch him I feel like I can sit back and just take in the show, he’s not perfect, but it’s not hamming up begging me be some lenient acting judge and react to every tiny improvement actorly scene done well. I guess I have been having a hard time with many TW thespians last few years because that noticeable effort even when it’s not too OTT territory is distracting and tiresome.
Not a fan, but I like these 2 pics of Han Geng:
Bolin: The ‘rocker’ pic with guitar is sorry cutie, trying too hard, but he is charming like the dorkier Takeshi younger bro
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! WHY are you doing everything BUT a proper manguo Cdrama?!?!?!
