…still. Do not ask me why there is sudden fireworks of HuGe, YuanYong and LiuShiShi happenings, it must have been fate ie love.
ShiShi has a much anticipated Republican era spy thriller out in a few days: 黎明决战/The Battle at Dawn. Have a 30+min trailer:
Or a 3 min teaser:
Erm. It is my forever bemusement why SS now manages to deliver NOT an aota of emotion as I try my darnest staring at her forcing it at emoting, and still looks greener than she was 10 years ago, not fooling anyone she is some topnotch agent…lesigh. She is the weaklink, that’s for sure, I’ll pray she could somehow be manipulated by PD to tolerable.
She is perfect for the aesthetics of the era. PLEASE surprise me most pleasantly. I beg.
This is my must watch still due to writer 刘和平/ Li Heping (ie best working C drama writer, bc in my world you have not seen worthy Cperiods if you have not touched any or all of his quadfecta: 雍正王朝、大明王朝1566、北平无战事、李卫当官) with PD 刘江/ Jiang Liu at his forte, best known for 黎明之前/Before Dawn (2010) clearly rubbing fame off the drama title here. Before Dawn is My Mom’s favorite, and a critic/crowd voted best of genre. An MV:
while it is as if she is playing blind zombies ad nauseam on screen, she is so lovely and graciously stunning a confident cool young lady in RL EVERY FREAKEN time she makes an appearance, not a hair out of place.
She is working hard filming a novella turned idolperiod 醉玲珑/ Love Lost in Time, the character seems one she is most comfortable with, some cool and manly valiant sect master. I like author 十四夜 ‘s command of Chinese but the novel is a drag to read. This would definitely be massively popular with SS pairing up with the it hot thing William Chan, just excruciating for me to sit through watching this pairing ‘act’.
However there is nothing I love more than eating socks and proving myself wrong, as I have watched a few episodes in total of 三生三世十里桃花/Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms.
While I could never sit through 50+ hours for some fantasy wuxia, this has good enough to beautiful aesthetics, nothing is hurting me in every department and YangMi, whom I have discarded as hopelessly losing whatever her lovely potential has been for the last decade + is suddenly back to form slaying a cool, bright, sensible heroine in ALL her many lifetimes. Impressive. I have always been bored by Mark Chao’s acting, and I bet there is what we called chemistry and screen compatibility working a synergy here, he has never been better. I am not watching it as a drama, but I am enjoying every bit of fine acting and OTP goodness out of the unseeming pair. My timelines exploded with shoujo hearts this morning, on the best luvmaking I have witnessed in idoldramas between two compatible, mature, wise, caring adults of gods and every twitch is perfect, from when their eyes pore into each other, that jittering uncertainty as the affectionate conversation is unfolding, at times frightening and uncertain for him, but instantaneously soothing to an rapturous joy the happiest man overwhelmed with misty happiest eyes by the next words, a most genuine firm loving glance by her. It is quite unforgettable a perfect scene. I thought I would never use the words flawless on YangMi, but she is as 司音/素素/白浅. I like these:
Fan MV to 石頭-念
~If I could spend my life weeping with you,
how could we forget, let our love seep away like the flowing river?
I could forget heartbreak, but how would I forget you? ~
OST fanMV 凉凉
~I miss you, every cold night under the somber moon, the moonlight turning into a river of longing…Longing morphing into spring soil nurturing me.~
I adore a hot face and whatever they wanna do with hair/facial hair never diminishes the gorgeous, the best example being O Joe…then there is a few hot men who could carry a lot of messy moldy looking infestation on face and still those eyes, case in point: Yuan Hong. Remember Prof Frederick Bhaer shattering our JoLaurie ship?! I got over it easy because by that time I could read Little Women, I had the immunization from Candy Candy as a kindergartener mourning LA MUERTE DE ANTHONY~~~!!!!! Plus, my shoujo manga teaches me Prof could look exactly like this scruffy hotness, EXACTLY:
It is fine by me if Cdrama wants to pirate a Twilight and he is auditioning for an Edward in those sparkling forests scene.
As far as I can tell he is still lazing around, enjoying life as a newlywed, hopping to LA watching some NBA with his wifey the other day, I am happy to see him happy…as long as you would stop working with the Mrs, because I do miss seeing you without enucleation.
So HuGe is going to take a break at the peak of his career, studying.
It is only bearable for his fangirls or a forever RL shipper of him and YH if he is perfecting himself for a glorious directorial debut starring his muse, as you both have uttered quite a few times could be in anything as long as HG is your director/YH is your leading man.
I am freeing up a good chunk of a weekend esp if the wicked tundra weather will make me repay the week of ~60F week I just had where I almost literally just roll myself all possible daylight hour in mud and sun…rewatching Ming Dynasty, just out in rebroadcast for the first time since its premiere 12 years ago. Hello Netflix, y not buy and sub this and add brilliance in your drama roster?!
