I am still pinching myself, ALL my favorite stars are there, almost. My favs, in their most glamorous, through my childhood to a teen to a grown fangirl to now a Dama in one room. Well, even if Zhou Xun is busy filming Red Sorghum, she should be here and now I winced not able to see what magic she can pull and dazzle in THIS company.
Gosh, another March. My garden is suddenly blooming in one afternoon, after my ruthless abandon, I do not know how living things survive under my care, or lack there of.
March, 2003, I was in Hong Kong. It was the most depressing darkest days of my life in that city. Time is flying in a speed that is too scary now, when the unit is going by decades instead of years. Enough of my downer blues.
Happy WEEKEND! What’s better than a mindless pretty picspam? And I really do not fangirl a whole lot of C actresses, or do I? Every single one of them seems to have a monthly engagement covering EVERY glossy magazines while I’m sipping red dates sweet soup that time of month. :X
It’ll be wise to rest your eyes before clicking 😀

….the type that gets us squeeeeee and swooon and even for a cynic like me….delve into a strictly escapist YY pipe dream of 2 RL breathing human beings being a couple, and united we shout at them at the top of our lungs TO!GET!HER!!!!!!!!
I’m not a fan of HXM on my screen (blasphemy I know, but too often he is swarmy and Moi Too Pretty For Your Screen) but I LURVE him in RL, he’s such a warmest prettiest teddy bear giving silly hugs all around. Absolutely no air, no fanfare. A kind, childlike derpy soul. I’ve never dived into a fandom because of RL persona, if it doesn’t work for me on screen, I really don’t care if you are Jesus. Sowry. BUT this will be the first case, and I’ll now be on my best behavior and never another bad word on XiaoMing because along with the whole weibo I’m screaming at the top of my lungs: I swear, I may not be lucky enough to be in the vicinity of such a perfect package in 10000 years. And really what did you do in your past 10000 lives Vicky?! Did you spent every single one of them rescuing children and baby penguins EVERY WAKING MOMENT to earn your blessing?!?!
Allow me to chronicle the explosive fireworks at weibosphere yesterday, most glorious, so squeeworthy, so ADFSFGDHGKJFHDGA romantic no drama airing atm in ANY dramaland I know of is even remotely close:
What did I do?!? I’m not worthy. All the glossy C magazines ganged up and decide to cover EVERY ONE of my C pretties. Loverboy in 4 (or 5) Feb issues alone. These are my absolute favorites.

Things I truly want to write about:
1. ILICDD: but then it’s mostly squees and I can’t stop myself from clicking another ep to begin with, and on top of that, control my inclination to gush with spoilers when this is one show that every detail is so precious and must be experienced firsthand.
2. FOL: It’s D-2 KoreanTime!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are down to counting down hours tmr!!!!!!!!! It is one that truly gets better with rewatch, so dense and immersing a drama experience, and it’s just so well done with effort and thought behind every frame. I still lost it so very early on, as in had to break and curl up in a ball crying when DongSoo’s dad is weeping about his dead son, his every word is like a stab to himself and to me, when we are also fresh on the visual of it happening on DS’ body. TT___TT I think this is partly responsible (bulk is it’s written by a Kmelo fiend monkey no offense to monkey) of me not able to enjoy any of the contrived melodramatic in IMY. In FOL I see a young DongSoo, being snuffed of hope every time there is a glimmer, and yet I see him at least trying to soldier on, this tender, old soul in a young boy’s body. I’m talking about a lonely, withdrawn young boy, not dealt a lucky card in life at all.
3. My 2012 favs. I have so many or I should say I rabidly insanely love the precious few like no other year, my head is exploding in the happy.
But of course I go do sth not even remotely related instead. *I do blame it on IMY being sooooooooooooo FUG. Lets not kid ourselves, obviously YSH’s party do is ShinChan going to his prom.*
C netizens voted on the best (and worst) glossy magazine covers on their newsstands in 2012. How can shallowme look away, may I ask?!
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:

DDay T-1. Tmr, there will be an Occupymookie movemt by a certain crazy6002fanbeast.
So I'm hording pretty nuggets of everything else like a squirrel with her nuts. Painted Skin: The Resurrection trailer is looking so kickass gorgeous, so much better than the campy trying too hard posters. ChenKun+ZhouXun+ZhaoWei are reminding us why they r each C cinema's greatest happening megastar, lest we forget. They r not hinting on the fireworks of most awesome 3way chemistry in the movie proper, they r giving it to us every nanosecond of this 2 min trailer in our very face and our eyes know nth else to do but be held captive…. yet what to do when they share the screen?!?!!??!!??! dilemma dilemma dilemma!!!!
