Tuzicr and everyone, speaking of Addicted in Japan...look what popped up on Youtube, a comic version of Addicted in Japanese.  It has scenes with them eating the red tanghulu fruit candy and the super hard moon cake  that Guhai tried to feed BLY (that was hilarious) and BLY giving Guhai the red scarf, all in Japanese!

Hii everybody! its been a while~ so good to see that soompi is still alive.. we have to thank @tuzicr for that. Your updates are really fun to read:wub:

 

@yeammyIf Im not mistaken, Red Sea Operation was also in Netflix so you can watch it there.. but if you guys have some problems w Netflix (like me :sweatingbullets:) you can watch it for free using the link below but you have to get through a lot of ads before you can watch the movie. But it worths all the hassles because the video is in HD. Link in spoiler.

Spoiler

https://ww2.fmovies.film/movie/operation-red-sea-2018-zx1/watching.html/

 

There are 3 servers. I always prefer openload bc it always gives option to add english subtitles files online but somehow openload doesnt work for me for this movie. Im afraid there is no english substitle for other servers. If you still wanna watch it w eng subs, you have to download the movie first and add eng sub offline..

If the link is broken, you guys can dm me in IG (same username) because I might not notice it if you dm me in soompi. 

 

But if some of you are hesitant to watch the whole movie (like me:sweatingbullets: bc I also dont like watching war movies at all) but still wanna watch our JY in military uniform holding his big guns, I rec you to watch this instead. This is JY's scenes in ORS compilation.

 

Anndd thank you @sohocomo I dont know why but its really hard to find good high quality english YZ fanfics online. But your fanfics are my saviour! Im proud to announce Ive read all your fics and reread some. You are one of my favourite YZ authors in Wattpad :D besides AbbieButtonbee and Beloved_Sienna.

 

These 3 authors' works are in my top list. Check out their works guys! They are great! And Im still searching for new YZ authors too. Someone please rec me some good YZ fics or better yet, introduce me to other great YZ authors. Im craving YZ fics rn :P

 

@TakeMeSomewhereNice I think most of the CPF Soompiers have moved to IG. No worries dear. YuZHou ship is still sailing hard! like @tuzicr said, CPFs are still going strong! Especially when YZ are in the same city during this Valentine"s month haha

Hey Chocohatechip and all!  I actually don't know anything about manga, I just thought it was funny how it popped up on YouTube right after Tuzicr mentioned Shangyin was just released in Japan.  

 

I'll also say that I don't read YZ fanfic and didn't know there were a lot of writers.  But I do remember reading a couple of Sohocomo's stories here on Soompi over the last couple of years. On my first read, I totally blushed after the first page...paused, and then read on with reckless abandon!!! With all the different writers, Yuzhou and others, it sounds like a genre all its own...hello, I've been living under a rock, I need to explore more! Cheers Sohocomo!  

 

See a short YZ 3rd anniversary YouTube tribute in the spoiler.  Bittersweet memories :-(

Spoiler

 

Just sharing in the spoiler my own opinions of Operation Red Sea!

Spoiler

Last year, ORS was one of the Asian film options on an airplane my friend flew on.  Hard to believe, but it was there along with a handful of Korean, Japanese and other Chinese dramas. Talk about a global release!  I saw ORS when it first came out. I appreciated seeing JY on the big screen, that alone was awesome.  

 

But TBH, in my opinion, it seemed like a hyped up gov-backed military propaganda film with beautiful epic cinematography and effects, unnecessary gore, an important storyline that got lost, and was about 30 - 40 min too long. It looked expensive.  It  also came across like the government was sending a patriotic message to its citizens, and was flexing its muscles with its "in your face" message to foreign powers (US, Japan, Philipines, Taiwan?) about the South China Sea.  I thought JY played his role really well, and a couple of the main roles were solid and well acted. I think the movie was "good" but maybe not "great."  I also think JY has much more to offer as he gets better at his craft, searches for different and more complex roles, and perhaps is more selective of what he does.  I sometimes feel like he's just churning them out like a movie mill which of course brings him work - a good thing - but I don't want him to end up being just a handsome B actor.

 

That said, ORS was the perfect career move for him, and it wouldn't surprise me if it wins the Oscar for best foreign film. It looked like there were well-connected sponsors with deep pockets who did advertising on steroids - so it's plastered everywhere for sure. But all JY fans will love seeing our Boss on an international stage, and I also think his looks and popularity made it a huge success among the younger generation in China, IMAO.  I hope he got a big chunk of change for that!  Again friends, just my opinion.  

 

What do you folks think?  Snowlight :-)

I would like to read the novel in english with my new e-book (kindle).

But I wasn't able to find a MOBI or EPUB or TXT or PDF. With the full novel! :(

I'm sure many of you have already read it!, can someone help me to read the novel on my ebook?

Hello everyone,

I’m very new to this fandom and this forum as well. 

First of all, I just want to say that I was never into TV series or movies between men before, because I never found one that was impactful or good enough (maybe just 1). But a few days ago, on my Instagram I saw some suggestions and one of them was a short clip of Addicted. It was the scene where Gu Hai was asking a sulky Bai Luo Yin questions (after Gu Hai kissed Bai Luo Yin’s bruised ankle) as they were in bed. It didn’t look like anything spectacular, but for whatever reason I went to Youtube to see more about it. I ended up bingewatching the 15 episodes at one sitting. And when I finished I cried and cried, because my heart was full of emotions from the whole thing. Addicted is the best love story (between men) that I have ever come across, and a big part of it is obviously the 2 stars (Johnny Huang and Timmy Xu) portraying their respective characters. 

Secondly, because I’m very new to this forum, I haven’t had a chance to read every single post on it yet. I will start doing so, though, from the first post dating back to sometime in 2016. If I ever ask a question that has previously been asked and addressed before, please kindly be patient with me and tell me either the answer, or the link to a previous post that has that answer.

Thank you for keeping Gu Hai and Bai Luo Yin alive in people’s hearts.

Hii @Blastilonic, as far as I know there's no official English version of Addicted novel. But there's unofficial English translation of that book. You can visit this site http://saehan01.com/addicted/

 

Book 1: http://saehan01.com/chapters-1-111/ 

Book 2: http://saehan01.com/book-two/

 

The translators had posted a link for Book 2 (pdf format) so you can download it there. But I can't find the link for Book 1 in pdf format there. IIRC, they had posted the link previously.. but they may have deleted the link now. So you need to read Book 1 on-site.

 

Sae, Sienna, Nancy et al. are really dedicated translators and translating the whole book is not an easy job.Please show them your support by liking/voting/commenting their page. 

 

If you're interested in other translators, there are several English translated Addicted chapters scattered around in Wattpad. But the translations in wattpad aren't complete, they only translated certain chapters.

 

Andd welcome @manifester to our YZ fandom:lol: If you have some questions just ask away, I'm sure some of the members will know the answer.. but I'm afraid it may takes a long time to be answered as Soompi is not as active as before. 

 

PS: Shout out to all CPFs that have recommended me YZ fics! You guy are so sweet :wub: I'll try to read them asap

PPS: Im sorry if I reply your message late as I seldomly visit Soompi, I'll reply faster if you dm me in Insta. And don't worry guys, I don't bite and I'm friendly haha:P

Hello, everyone.

 

I realize that I'm late to the party. I finally had time to watch some things just this month and I watched Addicted on Viki. That was... amazing. I got addicted. Three years late, but the experience is still a roller coaster ride. After finishing the series, I went to Youtube and found a gold mine of their Behind the Scenes. I fell in love with their love. Eyes can't lie and the tingles were there when I looked at their interactions. I couldn't sleep without looking at their videos. I looked for more and eventually opened an Instagram account so I could follow the active posters. I reactivated my Twitter and followed some more because I needed sugar to help me with the withdrawal. When I found out all about the ban, etc. it became even more bittersweet. I am seriously addicted.

 

Also made a soompi account because I need to be with good people who love YuZhou ;-;

 

I made a fan video because my heart aches still. Probably will make more because I'm not over them. ;-;

 

*wails internally*

deary deary me :lol:thanks for sharing @snowlight351 cos this is definitely one of a kind! I still cannot wrap my head around hearing the Japanese dudes' instead of JY and ZZ voices :lol:

@ChocoHateChip I totally agree, its enough to see why the Chinese got so hyped-up about JY after seeing him in ORS while skipping most of the gritty parts ;)

Thank you @snowlight351 for sharing your thoughts on ORS, I always enjoy others' opinions:wub: some of my reflections in spoiler.

Spoiler

Like I said before, I dont watch the war movies in general, so I cannot compare ORS to other movies, be it Chinese, Asian, European or American. My personal opinion is that even with the somewhat global release, its still movie mostly for Chinese audience, so the patriotic messages or the show of the military strength is very much targeted at them and less to impress the worldwide audience. Actually considering the international relations between USA and China, I dont think ORS could have ever received an Oscar. If you noticed, ORS was submitted under Hongkong entry, under China entry the movie "Hidden Man" was submitted, which also says something.

For JY career, ORS definitely proved to be a good move, yet we all agree he can offer much more, but I think as with Love Knot, he did the best he could with the role he had been given. Due to the effects of the ban, both JY and ZZ went back to square one, going from starring in Addicted to climbing up through the support roles and the second male leads before finally getting back to the leading roles again. Also in a way its hard to have Addicted as a benchmark of yuzhou acting skills, because it was so special in so many ways, that I believe it would be hard or even impossible to duplicate such performances with other co-stars, other director, other script...

Now all I want is The Thunder and My girlfriend to be released, yuzhou first leading projects to be released in the "new yuzhou era" B) Fighting!

Hello everyone,

Welcome here @manifester on soompi!

The first few months after I was "hit" by yuzhou were really intense, now I am more organized and figured out the routines that works the best for me, like the social media sources and coverages, weibo, wechat, livestreaming, i have even organized my phone gallery into different yuzhou folders cos it was one big mess :lol:

Hello and welcome @Saikya too! I think as the party is still in full swing, you are definitely not late, just bit later than some others ;)

"yuzhou eyes cant lie" is what i hear lot from my chinese cpf friends as the reason why they fell under the yuzhou spell. for me personally it was how obviously happy they were when together and of course all the lovey-dovey. i have seen lot in china, but nothing like this :wub:

And here comes the usual yuzhou report :)

Starting with some important Yuzhou milestones, such as the 3 year anniversary of Addicted Shanghai fanmeeting on 20th February. Remember I said 5ML wouldnt just post to commemorate some past stuff, well, looks like I was wrong cos they posted for the Fanmeeting anniversary with a song "Everybody is a universe". Looks like 5ML is as sentimental as us ;)

I found on baidu app (quite by accident) the following photos that were taken on 19th February 2016 when yuzhou landed in Shanghai (see spoiler, cr. on the pics)

Spoiler

Another important milestone is that both Yuzhou spent more than one month in Shenzhen! :heart:

JY only left briefly for few days for the Pegasus promotion in Beijing and few days to spend Chinese New Year in Dandong.

Lets celebrate with the latest Yuzhou couple stuff compilation (see yt link in spoiler, cr. Qing Ruan)

Spoiler

 

My favorite one in the spoiler below :joy: (screenshot by me)

Spoiler

WFQfqYF.jpg

Today ZZ "broke the record" by flying to Shanghai due to his scheduled activities.

Originally, ZZ was supposed to have Laneige event in Chongqing, but my friend said the organizers didnt get some kind of permit for the activity and therefore it had to be cancelled. I feel for Chongqing cpfs, because I also heard this is the second time ZZ event got cancelled there. I met some of the Chongqing cpfs in Beijing for ZZ bday and then again in Chengdu for JY bday and they are really lovely and dedicated yuzhou fans.

Nevertheless, the second Laneige event in Hefei should be still on (6th March), so we can look for ZZ being all whitey, sparky and boyfriendy as always when it comes to Laneige :P

Spoiler

I keep saying I am a very slow yuzhou fan, cos everything takes me such a long time, like getting a weibo account or simply figuring out yuzhou stuff that everybody else already got long time ago :blink: So just recently I figured out the "laneige boyfriend" term they keep using on weibo for zz. in chinese, "boyfriend" is "nan pengyou" 男朋友 (literal meaning "male friend"), so for Lainege (in chinese "lanzhi" 兰芝) they turned ZZ from "nanpengyou" into "lanpengyou" 兰朋友,using "lan" from "Laneige".

"lan" 兰 also means "orchid" in Chinese, so you see there are lots and lots of implications and ways to spin this.

My second embarrassing moment was JY Alice movie name. in chinese 月半爱丽丝 ("yueban ailisi"). what i should have realized is that when 月 and 半 are put together, it makes 胖 (pang) which means "chubby, fat". So considering the movie plot is about Alice being obese and drinking the potion to get thin, the movie title should be 胖爱丽丝 "Chubby Alice". Yeah, this is typical Chinese idea of a joke :sweatingbullets:

Another interesting point, Hefei city (Anhui province) is not very far from Shanghai, so based on rumors, ZZ should be taking a train from Shanghai. Now speaking of trains, last time with JY in Jinan Railway Station in December it was disaster, so hopefully nothing similar will happen to ZZ :wacko:

We also got ZZ participating in 2019 TV Drama Quality Awards (not sure what the proper English name is) on 5th in Shanghai, and the 26th Dongfang Fengyun Chart (chinese wiki says the English name is "ERC Chinese Top Ten") on 25th in Shanghai. Based on what I could see on ZZ studio weibo, ZZ participated last year and won some award(s) as well. In between there is some unspecified program recording on 19th in Beijing.

JY is still not sharing his monthly schedule, so I only know about the Meibufao activity on 9th in Foshan and the AFA in Hongkong on 17th (that Newcomer Award is hanging in the air and I so want it for JY :rolleyes:). 

Spoiler

there have also been going around rumors of JY staring in a new movie called something like "Loop" and that the filming should start in May, but its all very rumor-y and unofficial-y, so who knows. but its nice that there seems to be something going on, the more movies and dramas got yuzhou in the pipeline, the better chances are that something will be released :P its a simple math, really.

Re the two projects I mentioned earlier I have been waiting to be released like forever, The Thunder and My Girlfriend. What a headache :tounge_xd:

Thunder was planned for release in February, which obviously didnt happen. Then March, but we are already in March and still no sign of a fixed date :wacko:

Spoiler

I read some comments that it could be postponed till April (hope this will not be the case), some say there is some ongoing dispute between the investors and the previous actor (got nothing to do with JY), but its all just vague rumors without any solid evidence.

ZZ My girlfriend got no fixed date either, according to ZZ vlog the airing date should be April, I hope that still holds.:innocent:

At least their weibo account is still "alive", the latest poster in spoiler (cr. My Girlfriend drama weibo).

Spoiler

fdeR4kX.jpg

I really dont want to sound mean or petty, but even Pengpeng got a drama out on 1st March :unsure:(see spoiler, cr. c-drama tweets @dramapotatoe) Actually I am happy for Pengpeng, good luck with "All is well"! :thumbsup:

Spoiler

1znYebk.jpg

 

Well, looks like all i can do is grind my teeth and practice the "Power of Patience" according to the Zen Masters :sweatingbullets:

There is some fun stuff with My Girlfriend too :P

After I saw the following post from @bearology (see spoiler), I digged little bit into it...

Spoiler

 

Cos Bridgette seems really slim, so what could have been the issue, right? :mellow:

I found a funny article on baidu app (cr. 八卦多) from June 2018. The author started with the following picture (see spoiler) pretty much saying Bridgette looks like ZZ gonna drop her at any moment and that he should go to gym cos he is too weak :wacko:

Spoiler

hPOJwUO.jpg

Then the author continued that Bridgette is quite tall, over 170cm and that her thighs look rather fat on the photo (I am not making this up, it was really written there. sometimes Chinese dont sugarcoat anything :crazy:) and that could be part of the problem.

At that moment I thought Im gonna stop reading cos it was not really nice towards either ZZ or Bridgette, when suddenly the author wrote: well, if it was Huang Jingyu instead of Xu Weizhou, there surely wouldnt be any issue. :w00t: (yes, I decided to continue reading :lol:)

The author concluded that probably the problem was ZZ's grip on Bridgette and showed the next photo where ZZ had changed his hold (see spoiler)

Spoiler

26AO4u8.jpg

Seeing the photos, of course I had to check what other Yuzhou evidence we have, so I digged for some more photos:

1. JY holding Zhang Tianai at the old Happy camp recording

(see spoiler, cr. on the pic), ZTA height should be 165cm

Spoiler

uIK0UUA.jpg

2. JY holding ZZ

(screenshot from yt by me, cr. jeong rhie )

Spoiler

sh3VCiq.jpg

3. ZZ holding JY

(screenshot from yt by me, cr.  哥是個傳說 )

Spoiler

9cWfDo4.jpg

We all know that at least once ZZ dropped JY and the technique had lot to do with it :lol: so it seems ZZ have not really learnt from his past mistakes :phew: (just kidding). To be fair, some ppl suggest that Bridgette is actually taller than her official height which is 172cm. I tried to find if there is any photo of her standing next to Guan Xiaotong (our Alice) whose official height is 173cm, but unfortunately found none. The problem is that in the showbiz the "official" height is kinda a floating number, some report less, some more, so even comparison between two celebs is quite impossible :unsure:

One good tip I have learned, ppl suggest to look at the waist lines more than the top of the head for the height comparison. So once ZZ will start promotions for My Girlfriend drama with Bridgette, I will be for sure checking their waist lines :lol:

 

When it comes to comparing, one extra "no comparison no hurt" example ;)

Saw the following pic (cr. Harper's Bazaar Men) of Qi Wei and her husband Li Chengxuan...

Spoiler

X2s0TGk.jpg

....and what I thought about immediately? see spoiler :rolleyes:

Spoiler

As @nyota said: "strange posing and detached faces versus super comfortable and sexy" :phew:

 

Gosh, I think I should stop now. Okay, two last things.

Please if you can also like and comment on their FB and Youtube accounts:

2. Continuing with the Yuzhou Japanese saga ;)( @snowlight351 ) JY Pegasus movie will be part of special Chinese Film Festival in March (see the poster in spoiler, cr. H .Jingyu Japan FC)

Spoiler

Sorry, two more things :sweat_smile:

I just want to say that the music video for Walking Slowly always makes me cry. It's both heart-warming and heart-breaking, knowing the context of their circumstances both in and out of the Addicted universe.

Also, I have a question: if JY stands for Jing Yu, then how come Wei Zhou is not WZ? Why is it ZZ instead?

Who else feels for Gu Hai when Bai Luo Yin is making him sleep in his own new bed in Episode 8? Gu Hai looks so defeated when he says something like "You don't have to be so heartless" to Bai Luo Yin.

He just wants to sleep next to Bai Luo Yin.... My heart sinks at this scene, because I can actually understand Gu Hai's disappointment at that moment.

But something interesting..... later Bai Luo Yin tells him "If you come over here again, I'll switch rooms with my dad."

2 things about this:

1. it means that Bai Luo Yin actually already knows that Gu Hai really wants to sleep next to him so that they can be close to each other, not because of the "you'll catch a cold" excuse. Him threatening to switch rooms with his dad implies that he knows it will deter Gu Hai from coming over, so that means that Bai Luo Yin is aware of Gu Hai's feelings :) 

2. it also means that Bai Luo Yin secretly doesn't mind being next to Gu Hai; otherwise he would either have switched rooms from the beginning, or switch rooms at that moment. But of course not - he never does, ever :)

WZ has a song called 塵埃 (Dust), and there is a line in the chorus there's a part that says "wo de ai" (my love). It's been brought to my attention that in the last chorus of the same song, he replaces this "ai" with "hai" (sea). This is the same "hai" as in Gu Hai, as the "Hai" is written with the same character as "sea". Therefore, he sings "wo de hai" (my sea or my Hai - same thing).

Neat, isn't it?

By the way, it's a REALLY GREAT song. I love it so much.

Can't believe I just created an account just to comment here :rolleyes:

I'm a 31 year old business woman and I can't stop watching/reading BL drama. I think I need help! :lol: 

Thank you so much for all these posts and regular updates for us international fans of YuZhou! I NEVER thought I would EVER be so Addicted to ANY BL drama series in my life, until 1 year ago. It has captivated me and inspired me to draw BL illustrations and write BL stories. 

But all fun aside, I just wanted to show my appreciation for this forum and how you all have helped me to understand what happened to this series and the actors after the horrible injustice in 2016. It only shined a light on how important, we, as a community should support the right thing, because things WILL change, they ALWAYS have and they ALWAYS will. It's just about when. 

I hope one day ZZ and JY will be able to meet publicly again, weather as friends or more, because as celebrities they would be a huge impact for the LGBTQ community and would help millions of chinese gay people to fight for their rights.

From my personal view, one of my girl friends is dating a chinese girl. The first time I met her she told me to not take any photos of her or tag her on any picture because she didn't want anyone from her family or community to accidentally see her with her girlfriend. She is 28 years old, well educated and smart woman, but she still can't be herself and has to constantly be on guard with her private life. It tore my heart hearing this, because in my country, being gay is perfectly fine. So, it's horrible how laws of a country can infect people's private lifes like that. 

But until then, fight with them by supporting your local LGBTQ communities and continue to spread positivity into the world and never feel ashamed for love :wub:   it's the most beautiful thing we have in this world and there will always be people around who support it!

 

Thanks again!

I am not Chinese, so I can only make guess based on what I observed or heard. Chinese people like to double words because it sounds cute (thats explanation I got, I cannot personally judge if it sounds cuter or not :lol:), so for example, instead of 开心 (kaixin, means "happy"), they sometimes say 开开心心 (kaikai xinxin, still means "happy"). Often the doubling is applied to names too, so for example HaoHao and ChenChen (from Let go of my baby) full names are: Dan YuHao and Xiao BoChen (using Jiaersubs source, link HERE ), but only their last part is used and then doubled. Therefore I guess its the same with ZZ and his ZhouZhou.

For JY, i think the "whale" nick probably follows him from the young age as well, as its kinda obvious nickname (鲸鱼 jingyu, "whale"), it doesnt look like anybody is using "YuYu" for him. Chinese probably think it doesnt sound good, but I really cant judge :lol:

I agree, its very sweet. Its also @nyota one of the most favorite Yuzhou thing ;) I heard ZZ singing it live at his bday concert in Beijing and it made everybody crazy and crazily happy :wub:

I think quite some people in China are okay with gay people, especially the younger people, but of course not all and there are huge differences between generations, especially the older generations. So I hope eventually, over time more and more people will be accepting of gay people in China :wub:

One example from my local gym in China. There were two men I would say in their mid-twenties kissing each other and kinda making out directly in the gym. Now gym is usually rather "testosterone-driven" place, so for these two to feel comfortable enough to openly show they are together, i think it speaks volumes. (just to clarify, it was all very innocent).

Regarding our Yuzhou, there have been quite busy this week.

ZZ TV Drama Quality Awards on 5th March

We started (and unfortunately finished too :() with the red carpet. Livestream was via Tencent app, so quality was quite good.

I am sure everybody have seen ZZ's fantastic shirt :P

One interesting thing. The lady MC wanted to hold the mic for ZZ during the short interview, but ZZ didnt want to and took the mic from her in a rather assertive way.

Screenshot 1, ZZ taking the mic (cr. Tencent app) and it looked like he is trying to avoid the lady's fingers :phew:

Screenshot 2, ZZ successfully holding the mic by himself

For the Awards ceremony itself, there was no livestream, which many of us watching didnt know. Everybody on both tencent and iqiyi streams were asking about it, but nobody knew. i especially wanted to see ZZ playing the guitar solo that was revealed by ZZ Fanclub. What a bummer. Funnily enough, as I decided to give up, there was JY ORS broadcasted on CCTV6 :lol: can swap one yuzhou for another :D

The Awards Ceremony was broadcasted today on Dongfang TV as cut and edited version. It feels bit lame, cos I got really spoiled by all that live coverage of yuzhou events :P

Screenshot from CCTV app by me, ZZ receiving his apple-looking "trophy" for All-round Artist (everybody had to pick up his/her trophy him themselves from a table actually)

Apart from ZZ, three more artists were awarded and the "Fantastic Four" was asked for some poses :lol: (see spoiler)

Finally it was time for the music! Our "Guitar Hero" nailed it! B)

Also its interesting to compare with ZZ rehearsal photo ;)(cr. ZZ studio weibo)

ZZ looks bit dorky here, dont you think? Still very adorable :)

 

To make it "interesting" for CPFs we had JY Meifubao event today in Foshan as well! And both were originally scheduled to start at 19:30. Talk about coincidences... So I had to set up my streaming station again :lol: (see spoiler)

Spoiler

Here I was totally unlucky, the official stream via Suning app (which I took the pains to download and install) was not working, there was some chinese chick only and after lots of lagging, buffering and complete shutdown, the livestream was closed :wacko: Fortunately my friend sent me a link, Lion Sis was livestreaming from the venue herself. Thank you very much! :rolleyes: So after lots of stress, I managed to see JY for few minutes. Well, he didnt stay long anyway, there were more pre-activities with fans that included some singing even. But I did get to see him, so I am not complaining. JY was dressed in a lovely light pink suit and it reminded me of ZZ pink suit photo that popped on the SimpleSearch app few days ago (see spoiler, cr. SimpleSearch)

Spoiler

Then my friend said its very similar to the pink suit JY is wearing on the Meifubao promo poster (see spoiler, screenshot from Suning app by me)

The most funny thing is that as soon as JY left the stage, ZZ name was announced on the Drama awards program! I mean, really?!

 

Last but not least, ZZ Laneige activity on 6th March.

There were lots of CPFs at the event in Hefei and way less BZs, i am not hating, just saying, also JY Meifubao was full of CPFs  :phew: I managed to find a livestream link, which only said there will be some lady showing Laneige makeup, but turned out she was streaming ZZ and she was also ZZ real fan, cos she couldnt stop herself from saying how handsome ZZ looks and was even bit ooohing and aaahing when ZZ started talking on the stage :wub:

The stream quality was not much, so im not even gonna share screenshot :unsure: Most important is that after the event, ZZ flew back to Shenzhen :phew:

 

Now, the biggest thing of the week, JY Weibo "PR Campaign". First the mysterious 3 selfies followed by THE weibo story.

Im just gonna link Bummie's posts here, she summed it nicely and thoroughly as usual.

JY Selfies, link HERE. The official version (also posted by JY studio) is 3y anniversary of HJT...

Spoiler

but its also been 3 days since ZZ left Shenzhen :ph34r:

 JY Weibo Story, link HERE

I just would like to add few points to the Weibo story.  JY BGM is the same as the one used in ZZ Final Light promo/teaser video (I didnt realize myself, my Chinese friend told me). I have found the video on YT for those who have no weibo access, see spoiler, cr. 11301020

Promo video

 

Adding ZZ studio weibo cover, as it was in a different Bummie post (see spoiler, cr. ZZ studio weibo)

One more point from my Chinese friend, the original quote contains 相许 "xiang xu", which is similar to "想许“ (also "xiang xu"), which could be understood as "miss Xu" --> "miss ZZ" :wub:

So everybody can draw their own conclusions, but we felt its all rather touching and romantic

Yuzhou forever :heart:

Hello there @Sayu9913 and welcome here:wub:

 

Re JY OST songs, I dont know if there is any list, what I know of and can find on YT:

1. Date with the Stars show - there is one version where JY sings with the other cast members and then there is version when JY sings it by himself. It sounds bit sad compared to the first version, but its beautiful to listen to JY's soulful voice.

(YT link in spoiler, JY version, have also ENG SUBS and pinyin version)

Spoiler

 

2. ORS - the same thing, one version with all, one only JY

(YT link in spoiler, JY version) For some reason I really listen lot to this song :rolleyes:, but im trying not to think too much about the lyrics :sweatingbullets:

Spoiler

 

3. Small "bonus" - not OST song, but I like it too, JY singing "Red Bean" song at Dongfang TV Mid-autumn Festival program

(YT link in spoiler)

Spoiler

 

 

Just a quick note if anybody would like to watch the 13th Asian Film Festival on 17th March. There is official livestream via opensky.tv app (can find on app store or google play)

From AFA13 Twitter, Red Carpet starts at 6pm (in the app it says 5:30pm, so not sure which is correct), Awards Ceremony at 7:30pm, all in China time

The app is in Chinese, but the AFA pops up on the main page, so it should be easy to find the stream once its live (fingers crossed ;))

See spoiler, screenshot from opensky.tv app by me

I found there also a list of all nominations; as we already know JY has been nominated in the Best Newcomer Category with the following actors/actresses:

Jiayou Jingyu! :heart:

From what I know, there are 3 different DVD/Bluray releases for Addicted: Korean, Taiwanese, and Thai. Do they all have different sets of behind-the-scenes footages from each other?

Also, does anyone know how I can buy the Thai-release DVD set? It seems to be out of print on YesAsia.

Thank you.

From rewatching the behind the scenes on YT (almost everyday), I believe they have a lot of overlapping scenes but there are some nice juicy scenes that can only be found in each. I like this one in particular:

Aaawww it's so beautiful and heartfelt! Those two have the best chemistry ever.

Now I really want to have the Thai-release DVD set! I love this series more than any other series I've ever seen in my life.
