Liu Yi Fei Gets Waxed at Madame Tussauds

 

Personally I would have loved to see her Xiao Long Nu wax figure more than anything else just like the character waxes of Nicky Wu as Emperor Kangxi and Sun Li as the legendary Zhen Huan. Instead it’s a modern version in an embellished pink gown. She joins other Asian stars including Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, Sandra Ng and Kim Hyun Joong at Madame Tussauds, Wuhan.

Playful as she is, Liu Yi Fei kissed her wax self saying that she’s happy to have finally met her twin sister. She also coyly posed with superstars Michael Jackson and Johnny Depp and excitedly took a picture with Einstein.

Cover Wars — Sun Li VS Chris Li (China)

Both are products of a competition. Both are gorgeous sporting the pixie cut. Both are acclaimed actresses.

 

CHRIS LI for Femina magazine November 2013

She’s Super Girl! No really, she is. She was discovered and won the title in the nationwide singing competition “Super Girl” back in 2005. Now, she’s done numerous movies and graced countless magazine covers. She displays her distinct androgynous look for Femina magazine’s cover shoot this month. She has recently won her biggest award to date by bringing home the trophy for Best Worldwide Act at the 2013 MTV EMA.

 

 
SUN LI for SELF magazine November 2013

Betty Sun may not have won in 2001’s Star Search but look where she is now! Her most notable work is the highly popular Legend of  Zhen Zhuan where she played the heroine. But I bet, her biggest achievement is marrying Chinese actor Deng Chao. In this cover shoot, she rocks the retro look to a T donning men’s fashion items yet still ultra feminine.

Nicky Wu, Liu Shi Shi Admits Romance

At around 2:00 today (13th November) Nicky Wu (Wu Qilong) posted this message on his weibo account:

 

Thank you for your concern and blessing, we cherish this hard-won feelings, we sincerely hope that we can have our private life, give us some free time and space, thank you for understanding.”

A while later Liu Shi shi responded with this post “Thank you for your concern, I believe that God will give the best arrangement. “

 

It can’t be any clearer an admission than that! Just yesterday I posted about Shi shi and Hu Ge holding hands at the BQ event (see related post here) but after they walked the red carpet, Shi shi actually sat next to Nicky during the whole ceremony. As early as August this year, there have been many claims of “sightings” but the two never adressed those rumors. Earlier this month many media outlets reported that the two spent 8 hours together in one place thereby igniting more romance rumors. With their admission, fans responded with mixed reactions. But most were happy and congratulatory. It was said that weibo recorded more than 300,000 responses to the post within minutes. Many of the couples friends congratulated and sent happy messages to the two including Little Tigers bandmate Alec Su, co-stars Yuan Hong, Jiang Jin Fu, Ye Zu Xin, Guo Zhen Ni and even Nicky’s ex-wife Ma Yashu.

Nicky Wu and Liu Shi shi have worked together in the mega-popular Scarlet/Bu Bu Jing Xin步步惊心. Due to its massive success, which is also responsible for reigniting Si Ye’s (Nicky) career, a sequel Bu Bu Jing Qing 步步惊情 was made and is now about to be aired (thanks to the fandom’s incessant requests). They are also working on a third project together “Incisive Great Teacher 犀利仁师 ” According to many onlookers, the couple looked like well, a couple!

But some people are also doubting the veracity of the post because of its timing. They think that it’s an advertising ploy for the upcoming Bu Bu Jing Qing release. Oh please give me a break! I don’t think these two would resort to such cheap advertising gimmickry. So, let’s just all cry happy tears (like me!) and wish them happiness.

Hu Ge and Liu Shi shi Arrives Hand-in-Hand at 2013 BQ Favorite List Awards

The 2013 BQ Red List Awards ceremony was held in Shanghai last week. The annual award is given to chosen individuals in the entertainment industry by virtue of popularity, influence and show’s success.

But the focus of the evening were Hu Ge and Liu Shi shi who arrived at the event holding hands. If I didn’t know any better, I would have been jumping with glee over this, thinking that something is brewing between them. But I know that this is all for show, because of their upcoming series Da Mo Yao aka Ballad of the Dessert or Legend of Sun and Moon, which after what felt like eons of waiting, its official trailer was FINALLY released. Many fans are rejoicing for sure.

What I really want to know is when the airing dates will be. I am hoping to see this series early next year if the drama gods permit. It has already been cleared by SARFT so I don’t see the reason for more delays.

 

Here are the winners:

  • Most Influential Actors of the Year: Liu Shi shi and Chen Bo Lin
  • Favorite Actor of the Year: Nicky Wu and Zhang Yuqi
  • Favorite Drama Actor: Hu Ge
  • Most Popular Actor: Tang Yan

Fan Bingbing, Kim Tae hee, Gao Yuan yuan et.al. Attend Cosmo’s 20th Anniversary Bash

 

Cosmopolitan magazine celebrates it’s 20th anniversary with a gala event held last night in downtown Shanghai. The event called Fashion 时尚COSMO20 with the theme — “Fun. Fearless. Female. Love and Tell” was field with glitz and glamour. Celebrities from the mainland, Hongkong, Taiwan and South Korea were chosen and were awarded as “Dream Icons”. Some of the Chinese celebrities who graced the event were Fan Bingbing, Gao Yuanyuan, Li Yuchun, Zhang Yuqi, Hans Zhang, Chen (Xue) Dong, Nini, Zhang Jingchu. Taiwanese hunks Peter Ho, Bolin Chen and Kenji Wu were also present. South Korean stars Kim Tae hee and Kim Soo hyun were the only recipients of the award from Korea and Hongkong actor-singer Aarif Lee was also given the award.

The ladies kept it simple and chic. But I guess Kim Tae hee didn’t get the memo and went for a white bridal gown. Maybe she wants to send a message to her beau Rain. The men were sharp and stylish. My man Peter Ho brought more style in that coat more than any other man.  But during the awarding ceremony he ditched the mustard turtle neck and Italian long coat for a more classic black suit.

Hu Ge, Tang Yan, Wallace Chung Considering TV Adaptation of “Lang Ya Bang”

A few days ago I’ve written about Long Ballad 秀丽江山, a popular novel which is about to hit the small screen with actress-producer Ruby Lin and Yuan Hong headlining the said series. At this point the shooting is almost about to wrap up and ready for the chopping block (board of censors)to give it a go signal for airing next year.

Shandong Television Media Group has acquired the rights to the novel Langya Bang琅琊榜, a highly popular internet novel known as the Chinese version of Count of Monte Cristo. The novel is about to get a live adaptation with two famed directors Kong Sheng and Li Xue at the helm. According to several sources, initial preparations are already under way. The script is ready, the costumes have been designed, the settings have been chosen and names of actors offered to play the lead roles are floating in the netosphere. If the rumors are to be believed, which I pray to the drama gods to be real, Hu Ge, Tang Yan and Wallace Chung might be the leads. Excited does not even come close to how I feel! I should probably start burning the midnight candle, add a little bit of incense and start chanting to make it work.

Hu Ge and Tang Yan have worked together in several projects in the past including the modern drama Unbeatable, a typical mainland workplace drama which also starred heart breaker Roy Chiu, and the RPG series Rift of the Sky 轩辕剑之天之痕, which was so ridiculously whack I laughed uncontrollably at some scenes. But it did have it’s saving grace, Yuwen Tuo’s (Hu Ge) tormented character and demoness Dugu Ningke‘s quest for redemption and love.

I have always been a big Hu Ge fan since forever. I love how he always works his chemistry with co-actors like Ariel Lin (Seven of the Sky, Legend of the Condor Heroes), Ivy Chen (Modern People), Liu Yi Fei (Chinese Paladin) among others. Oh well, save for Shangri-La which I could barely stomach despite of my love for Hu Ge. He may not be so young anymore to play Lin Shu but I have no doubt he can pull it off. Tang Yan, on the other hand, is one of my favorite mainland actress. She can be cute (Love Waking Up,The Xia Girls), kick-ass (Agent X,Storm Warriors), cunning (Chinese Paladin 3,Rift of the Sky), innocent (Gone with the Wind) and surely she portray Princess Ni Huang with aplomb. Wallace Chung, although I have only seen him in a series once, (The Magic Blade which I absolutely abhor) is a solid actor and I think he will be perfect as Jing Wang Xiao. If the three signs on they will start filming in February 2014.

Zhuo Dong Yu Denies Rumored Relationship with Lin Geng Xin

Official Poster for My Ol’ Classmate

Just last month photos of mainland cuties Chen Xiao and Zhao Li Ying acting intimately made the rounds on every entertainment site in China. Which they have since denied. According to them no such relationship exist or ever existed.

Just a couple of days ago another dating rumor hit the stands and the web alike. Chinese actors Lin Geng Xin and Zhou Dong Yu were snapped “supposedly” rendezvousing at night. The 21 year old Zhou Dong Yu’s white cayenne was parked in the vicinity not far from where the 25 year old Kenny Lin was. A few moments later, LGX hopped into the same car. People are speculating that the couple have been together since early August. The two are currently doing a movie called My Ol’ Classmate and have gotten closer even sharing cute snaps on their individual weibo accounts. Which in my opinion is what you call “marketing”. ZDY was recently interviewed and she denied any romantic involvement with LGX saying that their encounters are strictly work-based when asked about the issue. For his part, LGX has got more explaining to do because everyone knows that he has a girlfriend of four years.  The fans may not like his plain-looking girlfriend who is said to have come from a well-off family like him, still, they’ve been together a long time.

Kenny Lin’s girlfriend

Actually, I like LGX more for admitting his relationship and the fact that his girl is just like any normal girl. It shows that he’s the type of guy who looks on the inside and not the physical attributes of a person. But I know that showbiz can change a person. I hope he doesn’t though and that he stays true to his real feelings no matter what. Wu Chun was able to endure it. But of course he had had to lie so many times to his fans faces. But I’m pretty sure he feels that it was all worth it. The man looks really happy now. Kenny for his part still has a long way to go.
