    Latest news - Tangren will be partnering with Japan's NHK to produce 步步惊心:
    http://ent.people.com.cn/GB/12906612.html

    I know they partnered with Huayi to produce Young Warriors and with Orange Sky Entertainment to produce Chinese Paladin 3. Now with the Japanese? Interesting and strange bedfellow, considering that YH just finished filming an anti-Japanese series.

    Tangren has created a new wei bo for 步步惊心:
    http://t.sina.com.cn/n/电视剧步步惊心

    Mainland fans stormed YH's wei bo in furious protest upon hearing the news that NHK will be Tangren's production partner for 步步惊心 (anti-Japanese sentiments in Mainland are still high due to recent brawl over fishing boat collision at Diaoyu islands). Chinese media picked up on the storm.

    Tangren clarified that NHK is coming in just as a major investor. Creative direction and choice of actors will be at Tangren's discretion.

    Double-edged sword I must say. NHK is Japan's main and biggest broadcaster, so with this, lady boss K has ensured broadcast of the series to a very affluent audience. Sure, Mainland audience is HUGE with 493 million TV households in the country - even an unsuccessful TV series in Mainland can guarantee millions of viewers. But China's population is still largely rural. Japan's population is rich and sophisticated.

    But I just saw TV news of numerous anti-Japanese protests in Shanghai. Really poor timing for making such an announcement. From what I've been reading in some Chinese sites - how can you call yourself "Tangren" (which kinda translates to "Chinese people") when you are l*cking Japanese a**?

    OMG! Oh dear! I thought Huayi was interested to come in? Why did she choose to go with NHK instead...more money ah because Japanese yen so strong?! It's gonna be so weird to partner with the Japanese.

    Some people sighted YH at Shanghai Expo's Saudi pavilion, took pics and put them up all over Baidu and Tianya.

    I wonder if he knew he was being photographed...but looks like he just went about minding his own business. Heh!






    Is he wearing a bra or what!! This person took such a close shot of him and he doesn't seem to care?!!

    How long ago were those pictures?

    He still had the chubby face It's nice to see him as the "norm", instead of having his "peeps" follow him like other celebs. He's so carefree...

    I probably wouldn't recognized him even if he bumped into me!! LOL.

    These photos were just put up on Baidu last week. He's wearing the same shoes that he wore at the Tian Ya Zhi Nu press events in August. So looks like he didn't succeed in losing much weight I know Karen has been asking him to lose weight for his new role, hahah!

    Oh my gosh! Really?! Wallace Chung might be in this series, too??? Any idea what role he would be playing if he does end up in this series? It would be my dream come true to have both Wallace Chung and Yuan Hong in the same series! It would be like holding onto two ice cream cones and taking turns licking each of them!

    I think someone previously posted that Yuan Hong looks chubby in the face when he's off screen, but when he's on screen, his face seems more sculpted and slender. Well, that may have something to do with makeup and contouring and the effects of camera angle to make actors look good. Regardless, I still think Yuan Hong is hot!

    Yeah, it's pretty exciting. But I really don't fancy the baldie look on YH or Wallace.

    Hair is going, going...gone...


    I was reading a book about the 1911 Revolution. I don't get why so many Chinese men protested when Sun Yat Sen demanded they cut off that awful Qing pigtail.

    See what I mean?


    YH's head will look even rounder with his chubbier face. From what I see on his wei bo, he still can't curb his appetite.

    News from Baidu about the copyright issue:
    据说是于正买不到步步的版权,自己模仿写了个剧就是《宫锁心玉》,而唐人买到了步步的版权,将由袁弘主演大 概与年底开拍,唐人的老板和于正最近因为步步还在博客里掐起了架,两个字:胡乱。但是确定的是唐人买到了步 步要拍也是真的

    以清宫穿越为背景的小说《步步惊心》最早走红网络,被誉为清穿小说的扛鼎之作。唐人买下该小说的影视改编权 ,导演李国立表示,《步步惊心》将会延续以往唐人的年轻唯美风格,汇集年轻的阵容,目前该剧正在紧锣密鼓的 筹备之中

    Yu Zheng lost out to Tangren in buying the copyright for "Bu Bu Jing Xin". So he wrote a new screenplay "Jade Palace Lock Heart" which is copied from a combination of plotlines from "Bu Bu Jing Xin" and another novel "锁心玉下载". Yuan Hong will be the main lead of "Bu Bu Jing Xin" and filming will commence by year-end. Due to a copyright lawsuit, Karen and Yu Zheng had a big public fight over the Internet.

    "Bu Bu Jing Xin" is a novel set against the Qing dynasty which became popular over the Internet. Tangren's adaptation will be directed by Li Guo Li and will bring together a young team of actors. Preparations are now in full swing.

    刚才和阿月聊袁弘会出演《步步惊心》,大家应该都知道了,看了几段视频觉得演技很好的。尤其是眼神,凌厉时 凌厉,温柔时温柔。
    From the TV productions that I saw, his acting skills are very good, especially the expression of his eyes - when fierce really fierce, when gentle really gentle.

    That's Yuan Hong's trait alright!!! Love his eyes.....so deep and intense, makes me melt!! LOL....

    I think by the time they film the series, he should lose his baby face fat..LOL

    Xiaolong, have you seen any videos of the recent promotional event for Tian Ya Zhi Nu?? I heard Yuan Hong, Liu Shi Shi, Janine, and Edwin were supposed to get together for this event on the 15th of this month?

    Think it's been postponed because of schedule conflicts. But it's now showing on NHK and Zhejiang Satellite TV. Actually, I wonder why they bother since everything is on the Internet. For NHK, the version being shown is probably Japanese-dubbed/subtitled. Zhejiang is an international channel, so hopefully there's English subs? Yay!

    Well, probably because not many people(elders and people without internet?) will have a chance to see it. Besides, I'd prefer to see something on TV instead of a computer screen...hehehe.

    Promotions will get people hyped for the series....look what it did to CP3. I have never seen so much promotion for a series.

    Well, CP3 was a co-production with Orange Sky Golden Harvest Entertainment which is like BIG and listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. So probably has a much bigger marketing/PR budget?

    Tian Ya Zhi Nu is Tangren's own production, and so is Strange Hero, so I guess we can't expect a lot of promo events for these two. Tangren is tiny compared to Orange Sky and probably runs a tighter operation. And if Karen can successfully sell the series to NHK and Zhejiang Satellite TV without need to spend money on additional promo events, why not?

    We'll see how co-production with the big and rich NHK will impact the marketing of Bu Bu Jing Xin.

    Are you referring to this incident?

    真的假的?这么猛?那后来她们都“yes we do”了吧?
    @电视剧天涯织女:庆祝#天涯织女#收视 揭秘两则谜底:因杀青时基本主演中只剩下@袁弘 一位男士,众女人在围追堵截混战的杀青宴上,逼迫袁同学示范求婚,要现场女同胞都觉OK才行。于是老袁悲壮 地单膝跪地、含情脉脉深情款款、行西式脱帽礼,就差口叼玫瑰手拿戒指(手上用香槟替代)

    Basically during the end of filming dinner with the Tian Ya crew, all the women surrounded YH to force him to propose marriage to all of them (after he pointed out wryly that the other guys in the series got to film a wedding ceremony but not him). And he said shouldn't all the women reply "Yes we do"? Subsequent wei bo entries were joking about this incident.

    Then there was this entry:
    @蔡艺侬:上一刻,我们都绝望了,以为已成定局﹗萌生退休的念头越来越鲜明﹗没想到,再一次峰回路转,下班 之前我们终于通过各个关卡,完成了不可能完成的任务,天涯织女在最后一刻获得上星审查批件,在最后一刻被浙 江卫视重新编排于明晚播出,非常感谢所有为这件事付出努力的人﹗

    Karen's really happy that she sold Tian Ya to Zhejiang Satellite TV. Apparently it's a real big deal for her as Zhejiang TV is the most profitable TV station in terms of ad revenues. But I still can't figure out why people bother. I stopped watching real TV a long time ago because I can preview all the latest series on the Internet. If I like the series, I buy the DVD and watch it at my own pace. Isn't that better?!!

    I saw this on his wei bo:

    Honestly I wouldn't recognise him in real life even if I was sitting in the same restaurant.
