There was a Vogue party and this happened:
How we adored all the Chinese Paladin 3 darlings then, being that cult hit of an idol fantasy period with equal much flaws and heart, those were the early days of social media infested interweb and they were still newbies just hitting stardom, so young so eager to share their most precious RL then, going on group trip to Egypt, blatant flirting of HongShi….and in hindsight we heard of HG and YM possibly dated then (and I would never shake the HongShi shipper in me). Those were the days, pre Goong/BBJX phenoms, before all the fallouts, and never would anyone thought there would be a snap of YM and HG next to each other ever again.
And I am still a very rabid eternal shipper of HuGe and YuanHong:
He has become fast friends with Carina after their reality show, and she also took a selfie with his bff the red hot HuGe. There is no escape, even when all my older gens have seen him in LoCH2006, they had no impression of his GuoJing, whatsoever. His MCS fr LangYaBang though, turned all into very rabid fans I have to be so fake cheering the fandom along. So do something glorious next HG, I like your person, but I could not stand ANYMORE LYB.
So adorably FINE
I am perfectly aware that last pic is supposed to wink at some condor cushy bromance, but I am disppointed at the RedWhite shippers not already have a million fanip of YuanHong inserted.
There is already talk of ‘passing the LYB baton’ just with these two taking a picture together. I hate the hyping up.
I am not a biggest fan of William Chan shallowly because his face is a bit disproportional with a plastic-looking nose (but it is real probably, I’ve investigated lol) for my aesthetics, and practically because he is not good enough an actor and a misfit in periods yet he kept doing them, next up period OTPing with Liu ShiShi I do not have hopes for improving slightest and it depresses me 2 much to post she looks like life is sucked out of her again. WHY. But it will sure be a megahit with their fans. I concur he has that elusive star quality of charisma oozing, and he can carry the chic, I adore this outfit, it is trendy, a bit edgier, wearing every bit of hipness out of it when all the other young idol lads making appearances go boringly safe or just tragic in peptobismol ahjumma tapestry disaster:
I am sickly glad never a fan of LYF both facewise nor acting (though he did have some promising sparks LONG AGO in supporting roles) and could stare and laugh my arse off! MUAHAHAHAHA
I said I had broken up with him last week, and of course I am eating my words today, so predictable. Especially when those artsy redbeanies are feeding me fansnaps of him at airports signing autograph so cutely and such:
OK, You look fine, and I am shallow and annoyingly loyal:
This is some exact designer suit WangKai has donned recently, I am more a fan of YH’s face, but of course WK is the IT boy with better proportions, carrying his currently airing drama blehblehblehSnail solely on his shoulder, competently attracting his fans, the viewership is quite respectable. I like WK, just not yet flailed, lets see how his rom with JoeChen will do to me in a few weeks.
Look who else was there like a dork:
ZRY has roped me in one role at a time, I should blame him making me endure a lot of time wasting. All’s forgotten when his Dr Qin will stay so memorably sweet for me a long while!
Trio continues to be so effortlessly ridiculously awesome and authentically professional, my delight of any day:
Our Grumpy is conned into an after a long day at work fancy dinner date with DaiBao by our normal nice dude Det Li who is ofcoz asking for sliced by surgeon knife death. He told DrQin DB is going to treat them dinner, he will come along and DrQin the cheapskate (and deeper down really want to spend his every waking hour with them he won’t say) can’t be happier to oblige hehe.
Thank you for your treat!
-Aren’t you buying me dinner?
What a miserable miser you are? With my misely wage you dare?!
So Lee told you this is my treat?!
*ROSES!* (lol Lee sms him every step of his suicidal cupidly ways)
It is your birthday?
-No. It is Li’s passing.
Dr Qin: Your corpses of flowers! I can turn you into one too.
*You, nice normal dude…*
*Falls for….this weirdo?!?!?*
Det Li is emoting his feelings of the absurd, not so much for our Dr Qin huh?!?!?!?!?! rofl
This upcoming epi:
Some crazily talented dearie did a fanvid AU of Dr Qin x Jabber XieHan fr LMIYD, and needless to say it is way more worthy than LMIYD
鬼吹灯之精绝古城/Candle in the Tomb has a trailer and an air date of 12/12 out:
Lesigh why tempt me?!?!! It looks maddenly exciting, BUT I know the writing will not be watchable, butbutbut these are much better actors than Mystic Nine which I have watched more than I should.
《外科风云》Surgeons also has its official trailer out:
I can’t say I love it 110% but it is seriously good yet this does not ease my worry over the writin. And now I am even more terribly greedy with this A+ ensemble, wished they had just bought the adaptation rights and straight up remade a GLORIOUS perhaps the best ever White Tower drama adapt just by going page by page of the novel. Still, This could not go wrong. COULD NOT…but I am slightly worried about the romantic chemistry between JinDong and BaiBaiHe a tiny bit in that trailer, should I?!?!
Not that they do not look good together, but would I like it in context because the tone is so very serious?! I am kinda cringing for no viable reasons other than gut.
To a newer girl crush: the third and final season of 灵魂摆渡3/The Ferry Man 3 is out!! Why am I sucha wimp, this is so my thing themetically:
‘Have you ever own something, something that has rubbed off some warmth from your body, something that has listened to your innermost yearnings. Some things that have been loved, and loved. Have you ever lost that thing, the thing that is longing for you in a dark forgotten corner, even if shattering your entirety, even if it had been years passed, there is still a day, the missing, the yearning, will bring it back to you.’
Proganist has The eyes which can see souls, as a 24h convenience store clerk, he has reluctantly picked up the role of ferryman for souls of the dead, coerced by a ‘policeman of the underworld’, owner of this peculiar #444 ( DeadDeadDead in chinese) convenience store, his OTP, ferrying spirits losing their ways, lingeringwith yearnings…his way, helping them with their closures in this world, to rest in peace in the other world. I watched S1 behind my 10 fingers and at times just through retelling, Season2 was not as great, but franchise gives me THIS:
宣璐 XuanLu, my girl crush from the criminally underrated gem 舞乐传奇’s dancing goddess 兰玛珊蒂 or cutely coined Masarati (she was 19yo!!!), I watched her dancecut fr the cult hit post epi20, washing down all that Fug from Scarlet Realpoop.
Talented a natural as an actress as well. Please, cast her in stuff I could watch. All her past characters in an MV.
And should I even get a tiny bit excited with very pretty…posters?! A 景甜/JingTian/SallyJing vehicle called The Glory of Tang Dynasty, talk about having the dreamiest backers in the industry. I have tried never watching anything with her in it, just not impressed with her acting and she has been forcefed to us as the biggest breakout, lead actress in a dozen of big name popcorn blockbusters you can not help but notice, next up Great Wall by Zhang YiMao, costarring Matt Damon; ;Pacific Rim 2 etcetc. So, plainly put she does not have the likeable charisma, and my impression is quite talentless an ok pretty vase on screen, BUT she keeps getting the most surprisingly terrific international exposure of leading roles nonetheless. TBH I won’t be surprised she would be cast as the next Mulan, mark my words. She has converted some naysayers though in her recent shoujo Tang dynasty period fluff penned by YuZheng(thus no way I am watching). This looks soo lustrously authentically pretty and somehow my girlcrush WanQian is in it (the lady in red), I have watched and am in madlove in her in her EVERYTHING, crap or not.
Because hopelessly my eyes have been spoiled by mindbending gorgeousness eons ago and there is no turning back, some things snapped shaped my standard of gorgeousness in periods since, I do not want to compromise:
At long last…whom to enjoy life’s flowers and fireworks?
Sealing the world, yet betrayed him.
I desperately need to be excited about Legend of Ruyi/ 如懿传 with my eternal girlcrush ZhouXun. BUT if this is not my earthshatteringly terrific, I would love it to bomb gloriously thus the death of any half-assed adaptation of borderline worthy material wasting time and energy of everyone involved. This has been extended for 10 extra eps to 80 or 90. I have lost that ability to be patiently shallowly sitting through drag, my attention span needs decent writing constantly nowadays. There is no story for 90 hours of RuYi, 30eps would have been succinct, I can not live with SIXTY hours of filler no matter how beautiful. However, did my heart skip and my inner fangirl voice started screeching till sore with JUST a second, an eye of her in this short minute of BTS/ teaser?! It is as if a look of her, all the rest of the characters, the rest of the minions of her world dissipated to thin air of nobody cares. This is a very very decent gorgeous competent enough bunch of actresses, well versed in periods, foil to her RuYi, not many of these court ladies will be loveable in the moral angelic sense, but that’s merrier right?! I really could realistically watch a genius actress batting eyelashes for an entire drama. NOW if JiangXin was on the roster, then I would seriously shut up with them just eyesmexing each other playing chess, embroidering, drinking teas, eating sweets, not a word, nor script, for 1000 eps as WH watches along the sideline droolzing, and me the most happy camper.
Yup, sorry to preemptively mark your acting grave WH, you will be eaten alive by Miss Zhou alone.
Just lemme dream on a little, and let RuYi be perfect, with the visual of my utmost cutiepie atvm PBG
I hate to be affected, but there is some award thingy and some boybander is above my PBG, your LJK, your SJK in the best actor category…and even if a word of ScarletRealcheerio being some form or every way better than Moonlight Drawn By Clouds in some silliest poll or any paassing comment on my social media, and there are lots, it is turning me into a blood spitting ragey lunatic. I was hate!watching quite a lot of ScarletRealShiz over long plane rides in hope it could put me to sleep with evil chuckles, instead it so hurting my eyes. I have suffered, expected that, but I need to rant some more.
Nothing in it was acceptably decent, not a hairpiece, not that gold foil kindergarten project of a king’s crown, not an acting job borderline worthy a mention, not a plotpoint was worked on with ANY diligent sense/care. EVERY single good looking thing in it has seen better more gorgeous days in their RL or everywhere else, some just looked plain awful in period do, and the artistic direction is to blame really because even if it took a fictional take of Goryeo around 900AD it is ~ 200years post the time of Princess Taiping above, and the Tang dynasty leftover influences alone, even by way of Buddhism should be on par with the fineries of life then. LJK overacted the worst ever I have seen him at it, I did not know he was playing a super scary abusive psychopath only murderous nightmares are made of, which I did enjoy too much lol at the out of control spasticity of his eye muscles alone I admit, I am terrible, but I wont admit I am half as terrible as this real piece of shiz, not a honest to gawd pretty enough thing to be this cuckoo over Crap. And without fail, every time a drama I deemed so ridiculously worthless, always spawn the craziest of OTPshippers, WHO fretted how the writing and directing and everything else, at times the acting of heroine was not deserving their OTP/Oppah. Work on some aesthetics and rational tastes my darlings, PLEASE. Because we will be getting this quality of shameless money churning shiz made till. I have stared at some BH long enough, nope. He could wear nothing but some pplBulgarianRoseMasks covering his face for all I care come the sequel and predictably the target audience will love it if all their oppahs r inserted, no truer words. Because even if I thought LGX was the weakest link in acting, in the much finer ensemble of half bald intriguing princes in origBBJX, he is also so much more handsome normally than any of those in KBBJX, rotten eggs my way is welcomed, kthxbye.
