Looking too darn good to be true. O__O
Guys, start popping the popcorn!
There are a few C/HK must-see this year in showing. I am shallow, they have my crushes (but some of them should be truly amazing…)
This is my bromance edition. There are quite a few that have warm my hearts through the years to name, I should say I love too many of them. The obvious is HuGe+YuanHong, or Daniel Wu and Stephen Fung, or the love hate bff/frenemy trio of Chen DaoMing 陳道明, Ge You葛优 and Jiang Wen 姜文, of the older generation of C thespians, never into the game of flaunting anything personal in public. There is a current unfolding juicy rumor of Jiang Wen casting Ge You and maybe CDM in his upcoming movie he’s also starring. I doubt it’ll happen, but these 3 honchos in one movie? Not gonna miss that.
This is mostly a Liu Ye appreciation post.
When I saw half my Wlist loling like a cackle of hyenas a wk ago, when the following rumored list for the cast of DGSD2013 was leaked, all I can helplessly do was ‘Oh-PLEAAHZEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’ it to oblivion, this utter devastating exacerbating load of bullcrap. I had a good laugh though. You will too.
By this time we’ve all seen Wallace as QiaoFung, and 90% of us r nursing massive headaches because of it. Wallace can never be a QF, he’ll angst and be in pain but missing the boat as the commanding hero of a Demi-god able to survive more than the whole wuxia’s worth load of crappy boulders falling on him.
imo Wallace has always attached himself to duds, I have seen quite a handful of his work through the years but none of them can be hailed as watchable. None. So it does make sense he’s attached to this. It fits, actually. I don’t think he’ll be the main reason this drama is the stinkiest of all wuxia adapts, he’ll hold his own and be bland coz if we are talking about a myriad of funny smelling things….there are plenty.
Oh well, how am I not surprised by now (and super grateful) of my prayers being answered, in hordes. Thank you thank you TPTB!
I’m not shy to shout out to the world I love all my hotties playing a cop for my fancy, better yet evil twisted baddies in uniform.
Here is Loverboy being ridiculously hot for his role in Devil’s Right Hand:
Hotness of Cactors is off the charts, this post. You’ve been warned:
YH kissing the mind out of a darn lucky woman in his upcoming TW/C drama.
Lets not forget he’s equally as lovely at the receiving end *I kid, he’s just rehearsing, PD showing him how he should hold the heroine Wang LuoDan’s face before some hot smooches*
1. Andy Lau is confirmed by Derek Tsang he’s attached to a TVB drama. Andy is now working on the writing and preproduction.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m not a fan of the moviestar Andy Lau, but the TV idol Andy in the 80s?! *WANT!*
2. Derek is also enticing Chow Yun Fat for a return to the small screen.
@__@ tbh, I’d rather see CYF doing sth he enjoys than selling out in one PoS blockbuster extravaganza after another. So a big Fat yes/maybe?
The theme song Painted Heart MV looks beyonnnnddd amazingggggg!
If you have a fond memory of the original Painted Skin, this should do it. I have, so I’m gonna watch it no matter what, like my biggest griping: no respect/adherence to source material whatsoever.
This is ChenKun, ZhouXun, ZhaoWei proving their worth and they r not pulling stops. There is not a shot of them that is not dazzling and mesmerizing. I thought the eye sores will be YangMi and FSF…but I’m wrong, and pleasantly surprised how cute they are in the few seconds.
What draws my eye is this is dripping in gilded gorgeousness!!!! Yoshitaka Amano is the artistic director, and his derelict decadence is a feast for the eyes. One of the reason why the barely decent original movie crept into my heart is the lovely theme song Painted Skin sung by the gifted voice of Jane Zhang. I love how with part deux they aren’t even messing with the new and try to best that impossible feat and just add extravagant strings and orchestral accompaniment to it.
It’s lethal and illegal to have a wet/sexing/eyesexing/angsting ChenKun in all his scenes in the MV, let alone the homoerotic frolicking in a steamy bath by ZX and ZW. We can see every dime spent and from the looks of it, very well spent.
Have another MV of another theme song: Painted Love ( a bit more spoilerish)
Have a picspam:

Okeydokey, I got it, I have more than enough crazy happenstance going on in 2012 to get it's the oh so scary~! 2012, so please just TPTB…gimme a freaking break.
Bees a-buzzing, birds a-chirping for weeks of a Secret Garden Cmovie in making. Yeah, I know, u just snorted at the absurdity, I did too every time I came across such rumor last few wks. BUT it's likely to be a real thing, there's a SH Film festival coming up in June and the production company with the right to this chimera has announced it'll put up stuff for the press and it's in a frenzied stage of casting. ie the movie right is bought. It'll be crappity crapping crap. I'm not even sure they even care to work with a script with words and lines on papers and such. The production company also went the tried and true nasty promo-tactics of throwing it out there in the weibosphere for us to REACT and hopefully sth will stick and….fanwars galore! They now r gathering names on possible C JooWon and C Ra Im. And ha. Ha. HA! Guess who's on the list? None other than my loverboy YH. Also my C girlcrush GweiLunMei is on the shortlist of RaIm.
So *breath* *gulp* *grasp* MY uber K bias Binnieboy's 'most famous' role could possibly even if ever so remotely be reinterpreted by my Loverboy Yuan Hong. The same exact Kim freaken JooWon. *ooooooohhhhhhmmmmmmmmmm*
OH P-LEASSSEEEE. FYI they put 4 SuJu hotties on the list as well: SiWon, KyuHyun, DongHae and HanGeng. Oh and HXM, and ChenKun, and Wallace Chung…etcetcetc.
!@#!$#&%^^&%^%##@$~ I'm still in absolute disbelief typing the tags of this post alone.
