Yes, I might as well relocate to Elephant Mountain. Don’t worry if you are getting sick of my Chang!Ge!Xing-ing!, primary filming is rounding up this week or so. Try as I might, I just have to picspam. This has surpassed my expectation every step of the way from what has been leaking out and this is now my most anticipated 2014 drama (not just Cdrama).
And there are already speculations of what Loverboy will sign himself up for next. One rumor is an TV adapt of 平凡的世界/Ordinary World by Lu Yao, the novel is a 3 volume, 1,100,000 word extraordinary epic winner of the prestigious Mao Dun Literature Prize set in the 70s to 80s in rural China, which is quite a break from his usual idol fluffy fare IF this materializes. I have heard of the novel a lot, but I have not read it. This would certainly force me to, one of the perks of fangirling Loverboy, I must say.
I also snapped a screencap of a crew under the HuaYi Brothers Management fangirling Loverboy, gushing her goal is to work hard and ‘marry’ YH. I do not know what this will lead to, but if he is catching the interest of HY Bros, the biggest conglomerate practically running the CN ent. biz. there are bound to be bigger better things falling on Loverboy’s lap.
To my relief there are young actors playing the kid version of the OTP (and the third wheel) and they are very good looking kids:
From L to R: Young Liu Xiu, Young LiHua, Young Deng Yu.
There is a new TV Series spread of the press’ visit exactly a month ago with new pics. I really can see a very cute, comfortable chemistry between YH and Ruby befitting their character’s swoonworthy romance growing and spanning many stages of their lives. It is adorable of the magazine to follow the crew for several days, chronicling a lot of little details of the scenes they witnessed.
They did individual interviews with the leads. Ruby mentioned she hopes this would earn her a 90/100, showing us a different Ruby Lin. She loves Han history and has the impression Empress Yin is very close to her own personality. Haha, she boosted she has a very keen instinctive eye on handsome guys all of whom she handpicked herself.
YH said although he had a lot of experience playing royalties, this is a very fun challenge playing different stages of the character Liu Xiu as he started off at the bottom of the caste being a poor farmer. He also enjoys the action scenes, the fighting quite a lot here, as this is much more realistic than his past roles in idoldramas like Young Yang Clan and LoCH, when the fighting are more fanciful for show. He said he was very pleasantly surprised by how well Ruby fit into her role playing a tomboy, he had the impression she would be best as the gentile period lady, with tears breaking every guy’s heart. Liu Xiu is a very steadfast, careful, stoic person, and lady Yin can be a very playful girl only around him, which is a very fun juxtaposition to play with. He said Ruby is so easy to get along and puts no pressure on set even as the ladyboss. And the flirt has to put in he was very nervous, head was blank, forgetting all his lines just with touching her hands when they first collaborated cameoing in Young Detective Dee, but now after holding hands every day all day, it feels like his right hand is holding his left one. <_<
HAHA I think this would be a scene where the future young king and his right hand men would pose and be handsome. In the head of Loverboy he thought it looks like they are posing for official portraits appearing on a Han dollar bill. Fangirls did one for them, of course.
The fangirl taking the pictures mentioned her ‘job hazard’ of keep pressing the shutter when a stallion has eyes on her and is dashing towards her full speed. It is hard to look any other way, but kudos to her still have feelings in her fingers to press anything because I would probably just stand there frozen and DROOLZ.
I am darn sure it is in Loverboy’s job description to be the clown on set, here he is having fun with the poor cow (it seems to be enjoying the abuse though)
Other actors on the set are equally happy and cute. I CANT WAITTTT!
The obligatory Loverboy in his exact same down jacket (frugality is a plus), playing with his cell looking like 1 trillion bucks.
One of his many lady bff Sun XiaoXiao wrapped up her work on the drama, this reminds me of the BBJX days…the feels…sigh.
Perhaps he is hit by a case of the blues, now that he’s about to leave this adorable CGX fam, posting his #nowplaying in the wee hours last night of Leonard Cohen’s song In My Secret Life, on how life is hard to meet aspiration, on lost love, lingering, the longing and loneliness.
I think if he got voted in some poll alongside his HuGe will cheer him up a bit in the parade of year end shows, don’t you?
Vote here . Mye told me it’s viewable in English through Chrome and she can vote. There is still 12 days left of polling and it is a very tight ‘race’! I am not sure if the cable channel organizing this can gather the winners for their show, but who knows? It does not hurt trying. If both HuGe and YH will show face, that is going to be the cutest mayhem and truckloads of hijinks enough to brighten ALL our days through 2014.
