I am in shock. And this is not good shock. I haven’t been paying attention to entertainment news for the longest time ever and I definitely didn’t thought that the next time I came back to write a post here would be because of such an incident.
Godfrey Gao, 35, passed away after suffering from a cardiac arrest during the filming of a sports reality show, Catch Me.
(In case anyone is wondering why there are two similar posts, I do realise that Marian had already shared her tribute post earlier but I only saw that after deciding I would like to share my thoughts about this whole incident and also document my journey with Godfrey. I guess writing everything out does help with rationalising and accepting the fact.)
There has been a rise in popularity of palace dramas since Legend of Zhen Huan. Scarlet Heart (Bu Bu Jing Xin), Legend of Miyue and the recent Story of Yanxi Palace and Ruyi’s Royal Love have all proved to be a great hit with audiences.
In Time With You turned out to be one of my top few favourite taiwanese dramas so I’m definitely looking forward to this. I found the Korean remake to be pretty meh but I like both main leads here so I’m really anticipating it. I can already imagine the two as Cheng Youqing (whose character I loved) and Li Daren (…whom was borderline creepy if you think hard about it). Anyway, Zhang Ruoyun looks so good cooking (as seen in Diva Hits the Road 3) so I’m pretty sure this drama will be an eyeful too.
PS: Zhang Ruoyun and Tang Yixin (whom I found really pretty from Legend of Zhen Huan) officially announced that they are dating recently. I’m really happy for them so I’ll take this chance to send some blessings their way. Hopefully we’ll be hearing wedding bells soon!
Zhang Tianai (The Founding of an Army), Zhang Ruoyun (Sky on Fire) and Xu Weizhou(Addiction) have been announced as the leads of upcoming modern romance drama TheEvolution of Our Love 爱情进化论. The producers aren’t promoting it as such, but the story line definitely sounds like a remake of the hit 2011 Taiwanese drama In Time With You.
My favourite reality show — Go! Fighting is back with season 3! It will start airing on 9 July 2017 with the original cast — Sun Honglei, Huang Lei, Huang Bo, Wang Xun, Show Luo Zhixiang and Lay Huang Yixing!
520 is a day of confession! So why did Yang Di confess to Luhan? Madness! And Zhang Ruoyun confessed to Xie Na while He Jiong confessed to Gulinazha? Didn’t they know the ladies were married/attached!?
Well, if you read my recap on the 20th May Happy Camp episode, you should know that the losing team had to post a confession on weibo for the winning team. I’ve translated the confessions from Yang Di –> Luhan, He Jiong –> Gulinazha, Sandra Ma Sichun –> Wei Jia, and Du Haitao –> Chen Shu, Wuxin –> Joseph Zeng Shunxi and Zhang Ruoyun –> Xie Na here. Enjoy 🙂
Wait what, I am so surprised! I didn’t know they were dating. But I’m happy to hear the news. I hope they will be blissful and loving even though it seems like a shotgun marriage. It’s hard to manage a marriage between two celebrities, especially since they are so young and still rising in fame. (Just look at actress Bai Baihe and singer Chen Yufan’s recent divorce…)
I really liked Dong Zijian in Young Style (and the one episode of Give Me Five 高能少年团 I watched) as well as Sun Yi in Fifteen Years to Wait for Migratory Birds and Because of You. I wish for nothing but the best for them!
