Well. From now on I’ll hold up a YH post till I can tease some juicy updates.
Yesterday was some drama expo festival in Shanghai with every production company under the sun showing off their upcoming dramas and new trailers. We should get a glimpse of Ming Doctress soon. Also it is confirmed I’ll see Loverboy as a Tall Rich Handsome romancing a single Mom Cherry Ying in City of Angels come SEPT! (or Oct! It’s ok, what is a another month?!)
ETA: yes! Word from Ruby’s own mouth we will most probably see Chang Ge Xin before the year end in Dec!
My irk last few wks have been we should hear about his next project soon right?! Instead we heard of nothing but empty rumors till last week. Ordinary World will wrap up in July and he threw us all off suddenly giving a cheer to TongHua the other day on her (very pffffmeh sounding to me) ManguoHeirs: Boys Over MilitaryAcademy where the lead is described as specifically having a very ribbed torso. I mean Loverboy has been teased for and he has shamelessly flaunted his skinny yet flabby tummy since his YoungYangClan days, why the drive of suddenly train himself some serious abs huh?! Name me one C flowerboy more suitable than him now, even his nick is Lil Red Flower.
Because there is a new CN HanaDan Meteor Shower 3 in making and I am still in tears roflmao. Haha take a look at the ‘flowerboys’ CN has to offer:
So let me entertain the thought of YH as Manguo hotheaded a hair fr being a DV abuser Domyouji, HuGe as emo angsty melo prince Rui, Bosco as playboy Sojiro and WallaceH as the kind sweet popular with the aunties underworld princeling Akira. Some dearie clearly an ebil twin of mine out to throw me the hardest fangirl question: Who is the fairest of these three off your head… HuGe, YuanHong, WallaceHuo?
Hair is pulled out. WH has prettier features, HG has the handsomest aura and proportions, but still my Loverboy has my vote as the finest. Biased fangirl is biased.
My pitch for Bosco as Sojiro is any screengrab from Ultimate Addiction.
Viola! Older Manguo Flower4. so nailing the prototypes of HanaDan like never before in acting chops AND most importantly for me ALL INDISPUTABLY PRETTY for once. I never liked HanaDan the manga because I find the artistry/the F4 fug. And every adapt since, there are a few of them not rocking my boat in the pretty. But if you line this foursome up. I can watch them in ANYTHING. Throw in a ShiShi, prototype Makino, we’ll have a Kang-ge~ fiesty pepper NianChi~ in Manguo. And the shippers can have their wedding instead of painstakingly creating awesome gifs!
And lemme see some of what the ShiGe shippers see, show me their CP chemistry can touch HongShi’s let alone the HG+YH BROMANCE. Lolz. A TangYan playing either both WH Akira’s too affectionate twins with some suggestive fauxcest (then eventually fall for HuGe’s Rui and Bosco’s Sojiro so we’ll have the yummy jealous WH) or some IJA bigshot ladyofficer who is actually a KMT spygirl WH would bloody steal the heart and kiss the air out of. Ruby can cameo as the fab bigsis of Domyouji… I can go on and on. See TongHua and your clueless writer minions, i am helping u out so you won’t fork it up yet again.
Of course, my pipedream CN manguo HanaDan is never gonna happen and enough of my YY.
News is he would most probably be in a more respectable CCTV period next instead. The drama is 解忧公主/ Princess JieYou. Technically a Chu princess, bearing the royal family name of Liu, distantly related to the Western Han house sent off at 12 on eventually three marriage alliances to the westernest tribe 乌孙 diplomatic with Han. The good: this would promptly get aired on CCTV! ! ! PD is a promising award winning new PD currently working on the movie 飛魚服繡春刀/Brotherhood of Blades (with SS, ie the only thing from her lineup I’m terribly willing her to be awesome in). Tell me my bucket list of seeing HongShi in something/anything decent a C period drama, even for the very last time with SS doing a cameo here is not that far out. Bad: the other 2 leads, Zhang XinYi and Li Chen, decent, respected actors, solid fanbase, both had a couple rounds of botox too many for me. Their faces will bug me to no end especially in a period. And that is not all of it, it is from the writer of BBJQ. WHYYYYY !? I will have to put all my faith in the PD then. <_<
They haven’t posted up the character descriptions of the leads, just the side characters as listed above so I’ll be lazy and not translate.
Our Princess JieYou
She is a few procedures from facetwinning a Lee DaHae for me.
YAY! We will have a furry Loverboy, my fav!!
LiChen. He is a bigger name than YH, so perhaps he is just doing a cameo here. He most probably will play someone in the Han royalty.
This drama is bankrolled by CCTV to commemorate the 60 year anni of XinJiang. Filming will begin in July in Beijing. Poor Loverboy, he would suffer daily heatstrokes then, I bet, even if they move on location somewhere further west in the summer months. He will again play a prince from the western-est ethnic nomadic group 乌孙 (near or in modern day Kazakhstan), the alliance is strategically essentially for Han in holding off 匈奴/XiongNu. I will surely have a lovely time droolzing, he looked so fine in the so headdesky I cant Princess Taiping, and no one is a fangirl of his without completely still flailing for his YeLuXie. I don’t think this could ever be half so silly as a ‘TongHua’ coordinated original script, watchable (if not terribly exciting) more importantly at least we can SEE it and judge for ourselves very timely unlike his finished for YEARS dramas.
I am just glad his projects seems much more worthy than his TR days (ha, when he went on months, years without work. so DiaHF TR and Kboss). BUT still let me just abuse my voodoo and be ridiculous, I want all my dreams come true: I still want that manguo military Hanadan with exactly that prettiest 4some doing nothing but eyesmexing topless or in uniform, TYVM.
