SK-II ADs: Wallace Huo

As most of you have known already that Wallace has been an ambassador for SK-II for a while now. Yet I want to play this game called, “Is his hair real?” LOL! Seriously! It looks a bit weird. Some people are saying he shot the AD before filming for the Qing dynasty drama, but others suspected the hair is fake because had to put a wig on. Here are some other shots to compare:

Yuan Shan Shan: The Road Ahead

(image credit: as marked)

Last week or so, I heard some rumors about her leaving Yu Zheng’s company. I was feeling hopeful, considering how she had racked up all these “rocks” that could help her build a mansion–mostly due to being linked with him. Yet I didn’t want to be too happy and then disappointed again. Then stuffs happened so I didn’t get to search for it yet. But it was confirmed later on. (Click here and here for articles.) The second article went into more details about how Yu Zheng had shared his thoughts regarding to that and suspected that he was issuing some sort of underlying threat about her career. I’m not much for conspiracy theories, but from Yu Zheng’s past reactions to events, I think it’s possible. But I’m just happy that she’s out his grasp. Well, NOT yet since she still have some time left with her current contract. I’m still glad that she’s not renewing. Now, others can fight over who would get promoted next and can’t blame her for being in the way of their precious favorites anymore. I’m not saying she’s the best or whatever. I’m not saying that. I mostly like her because of her perseverance and hardworking attitude. But I’m just sick and tired of others hating on her because she was promoted more (instead of aiming at Yu Zheng for his decisions).

Xiao Ao Jiang Hu 2017 Adaptation

Yes, it’s happening! I was looking around and thought it was a gag, but found some decent sources to verify it. I actually found out via Yuan Shan Shan’s Vietnamese Fanpage that they were doing another one. When I went out to search, realized they just started, sorta, so probably not much news yet. But there were like 2 or 3 actual articles highlighting the project. (Click here for one of them.) They’re planning to use fresh faces for this new adaptation.

Ding Guan Sen (丁冠森) will portray Ling Hu Chong.

Liu Jia Tong (刘珈彤) will be Ren Ying Ying.

From someone’s post, this guy would be Lin Ping Zhi (林平之). Not sure.

You might be wondering if I’m nuts in following this one since: 1) I haven’t finished the 2012 version yet, 2) I complained up and down about the last one, and 3) why bother? But guess what? Here are reasons why I’m sticking around to see what’s up for this one:

  1. The outfits are tamed. People who are so used to seeing glossy outfits are probably disappointed but these are considered the right tone for traditional wuxia outfits.
  2. Dong Fang Bu Bai is a guy. YES, it is important.
  3. 30 episodes. They could somehow extend since changes are inevitable, but I’ll stay hopeful for now.
  4. If you think it’s too early to have another adaptation, think 2003 when they did HSDS and then 2009 brought forth another adaptation.

So for now, I’m waiting. If they as much as say they change script and want to go the bizarre route like some other ones, I’m out. Serious. So I wouldn’t complain up and down like the other version. What would qualify as bizarre–since I don’t rate like others? If they cut Qu Fei Yan (曲非煙) out, I’m out. She was a brief character in the novel BUT played an essential role to the whole story. She was also my favorite character in there so yes, that would be the tipping scale component for me.

The Missing 2017: In Theaters

Yes, it’s out! I didn’t realize it until I saw Jacky’s post about urging others to go watch it. Yes, I was stalking Jacky’s page again, but realized he and Ming Dao had a mini reunion.

Jacky said that he could miss anything yet couldn’t miss his good brother’s movie. So yeah, he had to go support Ming Dao. But the message with “183 forever” got me all sentimental again. Speaking of “brothers”, today is also Ehlo’s birthday! Nice?

Jacky said in his Instagram update that the post-production phase is done and over with. It will be coming soon. I don’t know how soon but since he shared a clip of his scenes, I suddenly got hopeful for it.
