  1. Long time no see everyone! Yilong has made so many accomplishments in this short time: he has become the spokesman for Coca-cola, the ambassador for Tom Ford Perfume, and world ambassador for WWF. Besides, the film he played an important part in, My People, My Country has been released on September 30th and has earned over 1.4 billion RMB by now, a real blockbuster! And I’ve heard Tomb Notes Restart is scheduled to air in Q4, I’m really looking forward to his Wu Xie.
  2. Since My True Friend finished airing last week, it’s safe to make a conclusion now. Although I did not quite like the plots of the series, Jing Ran is another character of Zhu Yilong that I really like. And I agree with kamyzhu. It’s been just one short year and we got to see 4 new dramas and many more events (shows like Phantacity) , tv commercials, interviews, etc. of him, all of them have brought surprises and happiness to me. And that’s also why he drew my attention in the first place: a truly talented and pure actor. He never indulges himself in his past works. The Guardian is just one of his works and he moves on. No “using someone or abandoning someone” involved. It’s just that simple. I have never stopped believing in him. The nomination for Magnolia Awards was a recognition (even though he did not win the prize). There’s a long and promising path ahead of him. I believe ZYL will continue to shine.
  3. After watching 20 episodes of My True Friend, I would say Zhu Yilong never fails to bring me surprises. Jing Ran is a very mature and charming character (and extremely SEXY after he fell in love with Cheng Zhenzhen). I had thought Jing Ran was probably very sensitive and vulnerable just by the looks before I watch the series. But he turned out to be a proud, determined and strong male character. And I just get jealous of Cheng Zhenzhen because he brings that “Roman Holiday”romantic feeling with the character. But sadly, as the second male lead, Jing Ran’s romance will have a tragic ending. Sigh
  4. Yep, it was announced so suddenly! (I heard it was originally arranged to be aired in May, and then the other series got in before My True Friend. But yesterday it was canceled because of the “political” reason. Thus leaving the official weibo of My True Friend only two days to promote it. And it will be airing tomorrow night at 19:30 on both Zhejiang TV and Dragon TV!!! It’s a 48-episode series so the finale will be airing on June 13th. If you remember, the Guardian was premiered on June 13th last year. It’s almost one year down the road since a lot of fans got to know him. And we’ve been treated with so many great roles of him: Shen Wei, Black Robe Envoy, Ye Zun, Luo Fusheng, Chou, Qi Heng, Pang Jia, and now Jing Ran is coming! Just as he hoped last year, he truly does have a promised future.
  5. I’ve read somewhere that My True Friend will be airing on June 12. I’m so excited that Jing Ran is finally coming!
  6. Happy Birthday Zhu Yilong! He’s got so many best wishes today from his fans, friends, colleagues, and brands today! What a great birthday!
  7. He’s got an Instagram account! ZYLoooong! What a cool name! http://instagram.com/zyloooong
  8. I thought I had posted this, but it might be because of my VPN it didn’t got through. There’s always been an ongoing discussion about Zhu Yilong’s fans. I know that you might feel sorry for Avenue X. I liked her videos too. But I must say I started to feel strange about her recently. And not only her, there have been a few really talented fans whom I was following acted strangely. They have been trying to start a fight amongst his fans, mislead the public opinions, or be a fan leader to sell something, etc. So I unfollowed them. From what I know of, it’s because some will get paid for saying something or even selling their accounts. (I’m not saying Avenue X is doing that. But there’s a possibility.) So I don’t trust anyone online, because you don’t know the real guy behind that account, and sadly people can do anything for money. I’m following Zhu Yilong himself, not his company, his friends, or his fans. A particular fan does not stand for the whole fan base. And nothing can change my feelings about ZYL unless he himself does something I cannot tolerate.
  9. It has been announced by Chopard that Zhu Yilong will be invited to their Baselworld 2019 events on March 20-21. He will do a live broadcast on Yizhibo then. And it’s one month away from his 31st birthday, I think he’s gonna spend the day on the set of Tomb Notes Restart. But I really hope there would be some kind of fan meeting or another live broadcast.
  10. The airing date of the Skynet Action is settled on March 12th. It can be watched on Youku. And he also attended an awards ceremony for Dragon TV which will be aired on March 9th.
  11. Well I can explain about the Chinese names. Of course each character has its meaning, but not exactly every name means something. For example, every daughter of the Sheng family has a "兰Lan" in her name, and every son has a "长chang" in his name. Lan means orchid, which is a noble flower in acient China. Minglan can be explained as "bright orchid", while Molan is "ink orchid", Rulan is "like an orchid". In Gu Tingye's name, "廷Ting” is given to every son in the Gu family, which means the court. And "'烨Ye” means glorious. For Qi Heng's name, "衡Heng" means balance. His Zi, Yuan Ruo can be hard to explain, because 元Yuan has many meaning and 若Ruo means "if' or "like". The author chose these two characters might simply because Yuan Ruo sounds good. And in the novel, they nicknamed him "元宝Yuan Bao" (which is a shoe-shaped gold ingot) because the pronunciation is similar. So that's why Minglan sewed a shoe-shaped gold ingot on the knee pads.
  12. I probably should not say too much about this, but I think ZYL and his fans have been facing severe cyber-violence since last June. You know, there are some specific accounts on Sina Weibo that are paid to promote/tarnish celebrities. We usually call them “营销号” (YXH). And usually they collaborate with Sina to create some hot searches. That’s why you’ll find they never say anything good about ZYL, and those “black hot search” about him will quickly rise to the top. They’ll even call white black if they’re paid to do so. If you think about it, they have done it many times: back in June, they said his fans were illegally fund-raising for him; in July, they slandered that he had been secretly married; in August, they put the Swkopt thing on hot search to tarnish his look... Then they found these fake stains cannot hurt him, they started to turn to ZYL’s fans. The hot searches changed to “ZYL fans argued with A, ZYL fans fight with B, ZYL fans C, blah blah. “ They will find a teeny tiny thing that a “fan” said to provoke the others, once they “argued”, it’ll draw attention so YXHs will earn money from misleading the public opinions. But first of all, if a celebrity has millions of fans, there must be one or two that might say something improperly. They won’t stand for the whole group. But the YXH will exaggerate on this one person’s single line, and make people believe ZYL fans did some silly things. They will also delete the good comments and push the bad comments to the top. These are repeated many times, then people believe that “ZYL is a good actor, but his fans stink”. Secondly, even if his fans now are really cautious now, they will create a “fan account” themselves to say some bad words about others, then repeat the routine. What’s more, if a B fan or C fan says the same thing, no YXH will post anything about it. If a ZYL fan did something good, no YXH will post anything good about it, either. I just find it really disgusting. I don’t know why he has to face all these slanders and swearings. Just because he has popularity now and a small company that does not have the ability to protect him? Sorry that I rambled too much about those negative things. I just want you to know that Zhu Yilong is a great actor, and a great person. His fans are also a very positive group of people that are greatly misunderstood. Luckily, overseas forums like this one are not polluted by those haters and YXHs. This is why I like the environment here, the love is pure here and we can discuss without distractions.
  13. The finale of the Story of Minglan will be aired today! I’m so glad Qi Heng will have a happy ending that’s different from the original novel! (The first character of him from last June that has a really happy ending, yay!) And he has been announced spokesperson for two brands: L’Oreal and KFC. Usually these two brands love to have many popular stars to promote their products but they rarely give a spokesperson title to them. So ZYL and his fans again proved his business value. The Skynet Action has postponed its airing date. But I think it’ll not be very late. I’m also waiting for My True Friend, which is rumored to be aired in late March or April.
  14. It’s called Substitute Bride (替身新娘), a sketch from the variety show. It’s not an independent tv series. Here’s a link: http://www.bilibili.com/video/av4421773/?share_source=copy_link&p=1&ts=1549247145&share_medium=iphone&bbid=ca1920afef1219ad0a17e5a226801afd In fact, a lot of his works can be found on bilibili.com, but there’s no Eng subtitles. As for Guardian, I just wanna mention that even when they started filming in 2017, there was no plans for a second season, nor did they start filming one. It’s always a one-season tv series. Indeed, they adapted the novel badly with that ending. I’ve read the original novel and I love it so much. I’ve been following the English translation too and I think it’s good too.
  15. It’s gonna be Chinese New Year tomorrow! Stay tuned to CCTV-1 Spring Festival Gala on Feb. 4 coz Zhu Yilong will perform a show about basketball LIVE! Let’s just celebrate the year of the pig with him. (Although the haters are always using pig to mock his family name, pigs are cute animals to me.) It is said that his show will be jointly performed by Li Yifeng, many talented basketball players and street dancing kids. It’ll feel like High School Musical. He’s been rehearsing very hard for it.
