i wonder if any extremely generous and kind hearted person will sub the lux clips? thanks for sharing the links xiaolong.
but anyway. YM AND YH ARE SO CUTE TOGETHER! i'd totally ship them over hongshi, lol. even though the plot development was really shabby (i mean, the whole thing was only 10 minutes, but stilll....) but they are so cute together! especially the part where he forcefully pulls her into a hug - ahhh!
The wait is getting truly frustrating. (I want my dose of Cheng Haofeng and early Chinese imperial history, goddammit!)
Thank goodness at least for these bits of news and pictures from Japan.

It's a pity that both DQZD and HFCQ, two of YM's "zheng ju" (i.e. serious historical dramas), get such delayed broadcasting. >_< Come on CCTV, what's taking you so long...
Thanks for uploading the Lux video xiaolong! ^_^ Too bad it's only 10 minutes long--I mean, I wasn't expecting anything long but seriously, 10 MINUTES?! They probably had like 1 minute of screen time actually together, lol...but, cute nonetheless! The "hair-related" scenes are so cheesy though, haha...also I feel so bad for YH's fiancee, she took care of him for 5 years and she ends up with nothing? O_o (Anyways it kinda makes me want to go back and attempt to watch "Shang Shu Fang" again...or maybe rewatch the Yun Ting/Xuejian scenes in CP3. ) patricia, I can translate the dialogue over the weekend but I might not have time to actually sub it...
A cute YM/YH behind-the-scenes clip here: http://video.sina.com.cn/v/b/60998140-1721216174.html
Yang Mi once again shows her tendency of "bullying" her male costars while styling YH's hair...pretending to "axe" his head in half, lol. At the end YH goes, "我们之间真的没有仇吗?" (Loosely translates to: "Are you sure there isn't some kind of revenge/hatred between us?")
And from the "related" videos, it led me to this cute BTS of YH/YM during CP3 days that I never saw before: http://video.sina.com.cn/v/b/59001116-1654580962.html (includes a half-shirtless YH )
YM pretends to be a "reporter" interviewing YH; YH keeps revealing parts of their storyline causing YM to go "stop saying so much!! Be more secretive!" lol...then at the end YH is all, "ok come on let's go, let's go" but YM *has* to finish up her "reporting", hehe.)
In other news, YM attended another minor event yesterday:
This one is insanity... The person who posted it seems to be a reporter, he added: "So many people...totally exhausted me...absolutely could not manage to squeeze in!"
Crazily enough, YM and another female celeb wore the exact same outfit to the exact same event! Awkward...wonder if they ever met up that evening?

Hi mango_cake, thanks for the HongMi links! I uploaded them on YouTube
HongMi = eye-zap to eye-zap = electrifying!
And we will all continue hoping and wishing for GeMi, GeMi, GeMi!!!

xiaolong you and your diligent youtubing = awesomeness!
Speaking of GeMi, I just started rewatching their LiaoZhai (I got nostalgic after finally getting around to watching LYF's "Qian Nu You Hun") and even though the special effects are insanely cheesy, I am falling in love with their storyline all over again... ^_^ So hard to believe that it was filmed so early into both of their careers! A pity it is much less popular/known than their second collab in CP3. I am tempted to go look for more CP3 BTS/press conference stuff that I missed before...that cast was so cute together!
Edit: xiaolong just saw your post in LYF's thread and I couldn't help but do some more FengMi fangirling again LOL. So he first posted a pic of LYF along with some compliments saying how nice/kind she is etc...it was to return the favour because LYF has been highly praising and complimenting FSF in many of her recent interviews. I guess some fans took it the wrong way and commented about it in his weibo. So shortly afterwards FSF reposts a news report where it talks about LYF praising FSF, then he added: "For the people who did not understand before, now you understand why I was touched. As a friend she has already praised/showed support/encouragement for me countless times. Thank you!" I have to laugh at how quick he is to make sure to explain everything and ensure there are no misunderstandings every time when it comes to other actresses...yet all his YM-related posts he offers zero "explanation" and is probably happily reading all the comments teasing him about FengMi, lmao...he's probably thinking, "the more you misunderstand the better, heheh!" (Except really it's not a "misunderstanding" in FengMi's case, now is it? )

Fsf is such a gentleman...it's no wonder his female costars have such nice things to say about him. I just watched the lux video without understanding a single word except for yvonne! Lol...it was nicely shot but so cheesey. Yh and ym look great together...very compatible and a good looking couple.
As for liao zhai, i thought ym did a good job as xiao qian (?) or maybe i am just blinded by her chemistry with hu ge.
I wonder now that ym is almost if not already at the height of her popularity, cctv will finally air both of her historical dramas? For sure her presence will draw in her fans and hopefully the storyline will make the viewers stay.
I really think we just have to be patient, it's just a matter of time before CCTV broadcasts those series--being the "official" TV station, CCTV often has a lot more restrictions and have to consider a lot more factors when deciding about which dramas to air compared to other stations (which basically only consider what will give them the most profits/ratings etc; CCTV sort of "speaks" for the government so they have to make sure they air things that do not disrespect history, promote good values, etc). I don't really watch CCTV but from reading the Baidu forums it sounds like CCTV quite likes Yang Mi--not only are they shameless FengMi shippers (like I've mentioned several times before!) but they also often do favourable news reports about her. (I think YM has a lot of the qualities that CCTV wants to promote: hardworking, overcoming obstacles, optimistic, humble/modest, honest, loyal to her friends, values family highly, etc.)
So unlike other TV stations (which have been repeatedly airing Gong, MRXJ, JCSS, etc in the past few months to garner ratings), I don't think CCTV is in a rush to air her series to "cash in" on her current popularity because ratings are just secondary to them. (Their POV is probably similar to Hua Pi 2's producer's view.) Though honestly the media attention on YM is a bit too crazy right now--it makes some people feel that she is too "attention-seeking" despite the fact that it's really due to the reporters who focus the attention on her. e.g. during the JCSS press conference, I read an article saying the reporters basically spent all the time asking YM questions not related to JCSS, making it rather awkward for her and the other actors. Zhou Jie at one point joked: "Yang Mi you are really too popular right now! Before you arrived, all the reporters kept asking me only questions about the rumours surrounding you!!" I also remember at the HFCQ conference, the reporters kept asking FSF/YM questions about their relationship etc; both of them clearly started to get a bit uncomfortable, with FSF even saying, "we are at the HFCQ conference, let's talk more about the series", yet the reporters didn't seem to listen and just kept hounding them with the other random questions.
I was excited when they teamed up again in CP3. It was like a dream come true. LOL. Hope one day they'll be able to do it again since i enjoy watching them onscreen together. Some more YM/HG focused pics would be great but yeah, in general, that whole CP3 cast was fun to watch.

I wouldn't mind YM/Wallace either. Though with YM's focus on movies now I dunno if this is likely...Meanwhile my GeMi hopes have also now gone from TV series to movies since it seems highly unlikely they'll ever collaborate in a TV series again--but if HG participates in more movies in the future perhaps we have a chance of seeing GeMi on the big screen?? XD
Cute gif of YH/YM from Lux BTS that someone created--YM head-chopping YH in hyper-speed, lol! (YM reposted it on her weibo and then YH replied to her, referencing their "Shang Shu Fang" days, hehe)
New "Ru Yi" still:

LOL, YM's so funny & playful the way she fools around with YH's hair, just like a little kid up to her mischievous pranks. And YH appears to be so used to her antics that he can't be bothered to retaliate.
P.s. I find it really nice of YM to be showing her full support for good pal LSS & BBJX (despite TR & Karen's past mistreatment/grudge towards her) as the series is currently airing in China. Don't know whether LSS also showed similar support for YM when "Gong" was aired (as there were also quite a fair bit of comparisons btw the 2 shows then).
Although YM hasn't had the time to watch BBJX, she tells the press that her co-workers have said that it's a very good show and also adds that LSS is a very hardworking actress who keeps improving in her work.

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.
I probably haven't seen all the news about it but I've seen LSS reply that she hasn't watched Gong (so doesn't know how it is), and Gong vs BBJX are quite different (in terms of storyline/style/feel etc) so there really isn't any point in comparing the two. She also says she is good friends with YM but they never discussed their characters since the two series are quite different. Overall a very polite and "neutral" comment, but I don't expect anything more because no way would Karen ever allow LSS to offer any compliments or support to Gong! So unfortunately I think LSS is pretty restricted in terms of what she can say when it comes to YM. (There was also a report that said LSS replied she would not "chao fei wen" i.e. purposefully stir up rumours the way YM/FSF did for Gong to promote the series...it angered a lot of YM fans since "chao fei wen" has a very negative connotation. However, I think this was probably the media taking her words the wrong way or purposefully asking her the question to set a "trap", since I can't imagine LSS saying that the way the article made it out to be. It's actually a bit sad--from what I've seen in the Baidu forums, a lot of YM fans dislike LSS and a lot of LSS fans dislike YM--probably a direct result of the rift that occurred between YM/TR. Even though the two girls themselves are good friends! e.g. when YM wished LSS happy bday, apparently a lot of LSS fans commented on it accusing YM of not being genuine; similarly when LSS wished YM happy bday, a lot of YM fans took it that LSS was just "using" the opportunity to get more popular/promote BBJX. Yeesh, is it really that hard to believe they're just 2 girls who simply want to send each other well-wishes on their bday??? >_<)Don't know whether LSS also showed similar support for YM when "Gong" was aired (as there were also quite a fair bit of comparisons btw the 2 shows then).
Note: the video above also mentions the "identical outfit" incident I mentioned before. Just read that apparently, both YM and the other HK actress who wore the dress said the outfits were actually provided to them by the company who hosted the event (I think it's a clothing brand company.) Some people suspect the company purposefully did this to generate media attention, lol. (If so, they were pretty successful in getting people to talk about their dress!) Actually it seems that many of YM's outfits at these type of events are not picked herself--e.g. at the JCSS conference seems like all the actresses were just given outfits to wear as well (maybe it's more common practice in China to do this). A few of the outfits YM wore to events were also from previous photoshoots she did...not sure if it was just because she liked them a lot herself or if she was asked to wear them.
I find that so sad, because I love both LSS and YM, and I really wish they could all openly support each other and interact, and the thing about their fans is super sad as well. They're both such beautiful, hardworking, likeable girls, I hate the accusations. But LSS still has TR's protection, and I feel like things are a lot harsher for YM.
