  1. I read in a gossip column that Angelababy replaced Yang Mi as Bai Qian in the Pillow Book because YM's schedule made it impossible for her to film the cameo..... Oh dear.... http://maplestage.com/article/gRbyb/楊穎客串白淺再跳誅仙台,卻激怒全網觀衆
  2. Gulinezha has the unenviable talent of being beautiful yet unlikeble enough in real life that it seeps even into the characters she plays. Doesn't help shows unless the rest of the audience is so captivated by her physical beauty to ignore the cold, haughty, sanctimonious characters she always ends up playing. Appreciate the other characters on the show like Shawn Dou and the rest but just couldn't stomach her character enough to keep watching after episode 16.
  3. thanks. but I think you merged me into the wrong thread or I commented on the wrong series. OOPS!
  4. Watching this because there is nothing much to watch from mainland China right now worth watching. Like Lu Yi the actor. .....
  5. All these BTS shots are only making me more impatient for the real deal.. Seriously tho, Dilreba and Vengo;s natural camaraderie and chemistry .... Thanks to everyone for sharing these recent BTS....
  6. Yes. It's all about money. Like you said - Pillow Book is rumored to be scheduled as a TV drama vs. web drama. Considering the popularity of FJ and DH chracters in the TMOPB franchise, that probability of the series becoming a TV release is not improbable. So the earliest possible date for airing the series is now moved to December if we're lucky..... Just sayin'
  7. Considering China just announced another 'ban' on historical dramas starting August, we might not get to see this show depending how long the ban lasts this time. I just can't believe they broadcasted love and destiny ahead of this show..... sheeeeesh!
  8. The character that Mark Chao plays only appears several times (less than 5) in the entire book so I doubt they will have him reprise his role. Even if they do, it'll probably be a bit character actor who will be doing it since MC is too famous for such a role.
  9. I read the author's works - this story line is neither part of the original author's work nor part of the TMOPB 'franchise'. I could be wrong but I don't remember TangQi writing this story/sequel. If it is - I would love a link to the original Chinese edition if possible. It must have been recent because I started reading the Pillow Book after discovering TMOPB.
  10. i just completed watching LnD's fist 6 episodes. Story line is weak, poorly developed and ridiculous characters overall. Some seriously bad and cartoonish/juvenile overacting. Other than the 2 leads - the other actors are forgettable with over-exaggerated personalities (or is it the overacting, or both that makes it excruciatingly hard to stomach!?!?). Am already skipping to episode 14 I like Nini's acting but good acting cannot hold a weakly scripted show together. The CGI is really great - that's all about it. I can't wait for this show to end and for the Pillow Book to begin.
  11. yes - me too. I am a cheater and went for the ending first..... ps - Chia is written this way 谢 right?
  12. any idea where I can read this novel online (mandarin ok)? Usually I go to luoxia but am not sure if this is available there. thanks a million.
