Painted Skin 2: The Resurrection is a Visual Feast to the Eyes

It has been a very long time since I have a strong urge to watch a movie in theater and right now I wish I can just fly to China to watch Painted Skin II: The Resurrection on the big screen. Currently breaking box-office records, this fantasy epic about a fox demon trading "skin" or body with a disfigured princess is drawing massive viewership and earning accolades for its cinematic achievements.

Theatrical Transformation of Chen Xiao

I was never really an ardent or true fan of a single artist or singer. When I do get obsessed about something, it tends to be about an onscreen couple (e.g. FengMi, Alex Su/Vicki Zhao, Carmen Lee/Louis Koo, etc.) or drama series (e.g. Sealed with a Kiss, Huan Zhu Ge Ge). Rarely would I follow one particular actor religiously. I do have a few actors/actresses I prefer NOT to watch in leading roles and would rather see them in supporting roles. In other words, there are more cases where I prefer not to watch a  drama series because of particular actor/actress than I would purposely watch a drama series just for a particular actor/actress.

Due to my exposure to Female Prime Minister, Chen Xiao caught my attention and I began to "study" his filmography. I first heard his name on Spcnet Forum from a fellow hardcore FengMi Shipper and my good buddy, Mango_cake. She seemed to be very fond of him. When I saw his photo, my first reaction  was "Oh young boy with pretty face!." End of story...for the moment.

Charming Fanmade MV of Lu Zhen and Gao Zhan

Since I've been a little obsessed with the OTP of Female Prime Minister lately, I would like to share with you all this lovely little fanmade MV I found on the Baidu Forum. The original creator cut out all the good scenes from the trailer, rearranged the sequence, and seamlessly weaved it into the melody of this pretty Mandarin song.  The song is called Xiangsiyin 相思引which I roughly translated as "Incurring Lovesickness."

Female Prime Minister: Lu Zhen's Letter to Gao Zhan

When I was watching the 30-minute trailer of Female Prime Minister, I got really curious about the letter our handsome hero read before he started to spit blood all over the place. Luckily, someone on the Chinese forum managed to get a good screen capture of the letter and transcribed it.

New 11-Minute Trailer for In Love with Power

I've been so absorbed with the new Female Prime Minister trailer that I totally don't feel the strong excitement I once did for Hawick Lau's new drama In Love with War. My curosity and excitement for Female Prime Minister has completely consumed me! I hope I can get myself back in In Love with Power mode when the drama comes out this summer (speculated release date).

Official Female Prime Minister 30-Minute Trailer with English Subtitles!

It's finally out! The trailer succeeds in invoking a lot of raw feelings from me. Let's just say it both excites and disappoints me.

Release Date of Female Prime Minister May Be Postponed

Hi everyone! Sorry for my lack of update in recent weeks. I haven't been interested in anything lately, so I didn't have much to get excited and rant about. It's quite unfortunate that all the dramas I'm looking forward to watch will either get postponed in getting released or haven't finished shooting yet. Anyway, I hope everyone is starting to enjoy the warmer weather or colder weather if you live in the southern hemisphere. I personally love summer because I can dress in thin layers and not hog my heavy jackets everywhere I go. To put it simply, I'm just a warm climate girl. =P.
