Painted Skin 2

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:
