Novoland: Eagle Flag: Ken Chang’s Role

I just saw this posted on one of his fan pages so I had to go hunt down for more info. Anyway, this is adapted from the novel of the same name. If you want to follow the drama’s Weibo page, go here.

Ken’s role in here is Bai Yi (白毅). I’m not sure how big of a role that is since I have never read the novel. However, kind of excited to see another role of his.

Year 2017 in Recap

year_review
When I thought that 2016 was a terrible year for me, I was wrong. 2017 continued to tank to a new level of crappiness. There were many frustrating things–one after another. It was like when I asked, “How much worse could 2017 be?”, it was like a challenge to the universe. So stuff happening in real life obviously affected how much time I have for this blog or attempted to keep some sort of activity. I did better than last year regarding updates, but that was a lot of effort, because I’m still way behind on some news that I wanted to talk about. Yet no time or more like didn’t feel like it at the moment. I continued to get drained to another level that I thought might not be possible–like several days before. Then the pattern just repeat itself at different intervals. I think somewhere along the way, I ended up revamping my blog by getting rid of the too random posts. Like those general update ones. Although my blog already is random on many levels, but I didn’t want to just post for the sake of placeholders too much. Anyway, here are some stats for this year.

Total Posts in 2017: 155 (11.7% of all time).
January: 18 (% of the year)
February: 10 (%)
March: 21 (%)
April: 20 (%)
May: 11 (%)
June: 18 (%)
July: 6 (%)
August: 4 (%)
September: 20 (%)
October: 14 (%)
November: 9 (%)
December: 4 (%)

Books Reviews: Sad, because I actually read a bit this year but didn’t feel like doing reviews for some of them. Maybe I’ll go back to do them later.

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries:

Fan Fiction: Complete failure–unlike what I promised last year about getting  things done. I started looking over some of the fan fics again and managed to get going on some, but I can’t promise on how fast it would be rolled out. I’ll get it out when I’m happy with what I wrote.

Songs Translations: I used “You’re Always Beautiful” to start the year, thinking that if I continue to retain some sense of positiveness, somehow things will get better. But it didn’t. Anyway, how was this year regarding translations? I didn’t realize I was that productive. Mostly, I tried to push the majority of 183 Club’s songs out.

Chinese:

Vietnamese:

I didn’t want to do this update like I said last year. However, I felt like I needed to persuade myself to continue on. Not to mention, I want to keep some sort of teeny, tiny bit of hope that 2018 will actually be better. So we’ll see, right?

Tang Dynasty Tour: Web Series

I just saw someone updated on Ken Chang’s fan page about this so I went and hunted for more information. He’s finally portraying a king. Although he’s not the main guy but I’m still excited for his role. (Go here to follow their Weibo page.)

Ken will be portraying Li Shi Min (李世民), a well-known king of the Tang dynasty.

Anita Yuen will be portraying the queen. I haven’t seen her in anything ages now, lol. So I’m excited to see how she’s doing lately.

Wang Tian Chen is the male lead.

The female lead is Zhang Jia Ning.

Regarding other cast, Wang Wen Jie will portray a prince.

Yu Yang will be portraying the main lead guy’s wife. Or some information said so. I’m not sure how this will work out, lol. What’s also strange is it’s supposed to be a time travel series aka the main guy is from the modern time and then travels to the Tang dynasty. Or the rule for web series are different so they could pull it off?

Anyway, the last of the cast that I’m updating on this time is Liu Yu Feng. I’ll update more as the filming goes along and they disclose a little more, lol. I wish the production team the best of luck with filming.

The Handsomest Men of the (Ancient) World

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 share.

Anyway, did you see your favorites in here?
