The Handsomest Men of the (Ancient) World

(image credit: as marked)

I just stumbled upon this MV and couldn’t help but share. (Click here for the original on Weibo and here for Vietnamese subs of the song.) The song is Zhang Jie’s “Tian Xia.” I used Ken’s picture because that was where I first saw the video being shared.

Anyway, did you see your favorites in here?

Our Time Will Come: A Wallace and Zhou Xun Collaboration

This was actually shot before the Ruyi one but I think the other one received more attention. Anyway, this is a movie directed by Ann Hui. It’s a war movie.

Many war movies focused on the male side, but this one will focus on one of the notable heroines of that time, Fang Lan (方蘭), but she is often known as Fang Gu (方姑). This is, of course, Zhou Xun’s character.

Wallace will play her lover, Li Jin Rong (李錦榮). His name sounds really, really familiar. I can’t place it at the moment. Not sure if he was mentioned or appeared in Dong Jiang Heroes yet wasn’t focused on since the other drama focused on Liu Hei Zai and his side mostly.

Which brings me to the other essential character of the drama, Liu Hei Zai. He will be portrayed by Eddie Peng. (Good luck with that since Wang Lei already stole my heart, lol.)

They will be joined by other veteran stars, such as Bau Hei Jing, Ray Lui, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Eddie Cheung, and more.

Check out the trailer (uploaded by 双喜電影 A Really Happy Film). It looks quite promising.

Janine and Eddie Reunited in Adidas Commercial

I know this is a tad old since it was from February but I just jumped back on Weibo like once in a blue moon lately to check. Did I say that they are one of my favorite on-screen couples? So yes, I had to jump at the opportunity when I noticed their interaction. (Click here for the clip.)

Translations:

Not the same type of sound
Not the same type of setting
Not the same type of movement
Nevertheless, it’s the same type of focus

Adidas’ message

Different type of Eddie
Different type of Janine
Nevertheless, it’s the same type of focus

Janine’s message

Well, it started with Adidas posting a new commercial of Janine and Eddie with the catchy phrases. Then Janine forwarded it with her own response, tagging Eddie in the process.

Translation:

Where’s the difference?

Eddie’s message

He, obviously, responded. How could he not? She was his Xiao Wei. But anyway, to answer Eddie, maybe it’s because you no longer look like this?

Just kidding! Still love them both.
