Out of nowhere I miss the young Jay Chou, not really out of nowhere, I just saw Jay at 金曲獎 Golden Melody Awards. Every time I just so happen to see him live, and I haven’t been following him at all, these years, I will still pause and skip a beat, the skipping a beat, the daze and amaze as close to bumping into an ex, still all fine and, out of nowhere the butterflies are back in tummy. We do have a muscle memory of love, I suppose.
Is Hua! Xu!! Yin!!! (I know it is stuck with an incredulously dull drama title, hence just…no. It doesn’t exist to me.) My most anticipated Cdrama or is this THE most anticipated Cdrama?!?!?! I had the hardest time keeping up with the delicious frenzy (and my delightful Loverboy is so his normal self in not giving me a moment to just INHALE from being all the hyperventilating of him being ridiculously entertaining and lovely when I’m least free).
After being secretive for weeks, stills are out last wk!
Jay Chou maybe repeating himself since forever, but I’m a sucker for his ‘wuxiapop’. Jay is still the reigning, no contest King of Mandopop, needless to say his new MV Hong Chen Ke Zhan 紅塵客棧 is a HUGE deal. I’ll be looping it till I’m sick of it, like I always do a Jay MV:
It’s quite horribly acted, but it’s for an MV, so we can’t be too nitpicky. The pretty girl is TR’s Gu Li Na Zha, her ethnicity is Uyghur, so it’s a nice surprise she can carry the period/wuxia garb, but alas, she can’t act. The hero is forgettably fug. The white horse can act better than the 2 of them combined, but the wuxia is AMAZING, the splattering of blood too. It’s just pretty (scenery), pretty (action), pretty (Gu Li), pretty (Jay’s ARMS)
And it takes no time for the super talented MagicBlade fandom to make an ever better MV with their OTP RedLeaf (Wallace and Baron). It is utterly amazing and romantically slashy, saving anyone not knowing a thing about MagicBlade the misery of laboring through that PoS.
