    Default Zhang Jia Ni - The "Dream" Girl

    Name: 张嘉倪 / Zhang Jia Ni
    Real name: 张佳妮
    Profession: Actress, singer, host, and model
    Birthdate: 1987-June-22
    Birthplace: Chengdu, Sichuan, China
    Height: 163cm
    TV Series: 又见一帘幽梦 Dreams Link (as Wang Zi Ling - Hunan TV, 2007)

    Zhang Jia Ni is the winner of the "Finding Zi Ling" nationwide contest, earning her a highly coveted leading role in the 2007 television internet-era adaptation of Qiong Yao's famous novel Yi Lian You Meng (一帘幽梦 aka Dream Behind the Curtain). Her previous working experience in the entertainment industry had been doing commercials and appearing in magazines as a model.

    Zhang Jia Ni is a newbie in TV series. She's only 20 years old. Just like Vicki Zhao and Huang Yi, she's a new Qiong Yao Girl. Her performance in Dreams Link was quite impressive for a young actress. I have been watching Dreams Link for a few days and I am up to episode 20. So far, I loved this series.

    ZJN is quite pretty and took on the role in Dreams Link as Wang Zi Ling, a lively girl daring to love. Her role's nickname is Xiao Ya Zi (Little Duck). (Sounds familiar?! This is Auntie Qiong Yao's nickname calling - like Xiao Yan Zi (Little Swallow)?! Remember HZGG! Obviously, Auntie likes cutesy birds.)

    The rest of the main cast is excellent according to the story. Bao Jian Feng (Bao Bao) played the handsome Chu Ling. Beautiful young veteran Qin Lan graced the screens as the flying-fairy dancer Wang Lu Ping (Zi Ling's older sister). Veteran's veteran Alex Fong dared the role as the middle-age lover Fei Yun Fan. A role of note: Taiwanese star Joanne Zeng humored the series with her renditions of song-and-dance, quite amusing. For a while, I thought she was doing the Sweety act. (Sweety: Achel Zhang, Joanne Zeng, Esther Liu)

    As for me, the plot and dialogue tickled my dream-linking fantasy and kept me awake for more episodes. I really enjoy Dreams Link so far. If you like tons of messy and juicy hugs and kisses, as well as enough tears, this TV series is for you. There were enough humors to offset the sad scenes.

    Qiong Yao's story was put on the screens twice before, in 1974 (movie) and in 1996 (a series), entitled "Dream Behind the Curtain". In 1974, I think it was a coincidence that the actress Wang Ping played the role of Wang Lu Ping.

    I wanted to make a thread for her, but didn't get time. ^^ She is very pretty and act very good. Dreams Link is her first TV serie I think and it is her last.

    She was so cute with Alex fong (Fei Yun Fan) in the TV serie, very good serie, everyone who love romantic movie should watch it.

    *Visit that site: Dreams Link
    You will see a clip with her.

    I'll say Zhang Jia Ni looks very pretty from most of the angles, but sometimes her looks are questionable, especially when she put on heavier makeup, maybe due to the needs of the stage prop. I think she only needs very light makeup. She definitely needs more chunks of padding all around (yes, she has room for a bit of expansion, especially slightly fuller cheeks). She looks quite sexy and ultra fit in skimpy outfits (ha! who doesn't?! not my cousin Rachel, shhh....). ZJN is 20 now and about the same age as LYF.

    ZJN worked on Dreams Link at the age of 19 (2006). The age span of her role up to episode 20 is 16 to 22. Dreams Link was aired in 2007.

    I just finished episode 21. Dang! I want to live like Wang Zi Ling (ZJN) in episodes 19, 20 and 21 - en France, en a 20-room castle/mansion, with someone loving her and spoiling her at almost any cost. It's like the cinderella story, except no one turned into a pumpkin at midnight. The most touching part was Fei Yun Fan (Alex Fong - her rich hubby) built a real dream world for her in his HUGE garden based on her own "Dream Behind the Curtain" website. It was so so so funny when she woke up the next morning, upon arrival at the mansion moving from China to France, not finding Yun Fan and not too familiar with her whereabout, desparately and frantically looking for Yun Fan. She finally found him...by racing into a meeting suite on the lower floor ..... with his company staff present .... in her sexy lingerie!!! Hahaha .... mega embarassing .... nice scenary for some managers .... she covered her face and ran amok and couldn't find her way back to the master bedroom. Later on, she became the talk of the town and probably won many admiring eyes! The French town was romantic and so were they. So, I shall restrain from saying too much wonderful details in episodes 19, 20 and 21. She looked grrrreat so far.

    These 3 episodes are so lovey-dovey. I can still feel the honey, molasses, sweets, wonderful hugs and kisses all over. It tinkles. Damn, What A Dream!!!

    She grows on you with each episode:

    1. I love the way Yun Fan and Zi Ling danced to the Tango in some company anniversary(?). Zi Ling broke her high heel and fell on the dance floor, due to clumsiness. In a waning and awkward moment (really cute), to cover her embarassment (what else is new!), Yun Fan came to her rescue by presenting her a rose and led her with an ultra romantic Tango, with a rose in her lips and with her in her bare feet. Awwwww! Wah haha! Afterward, everybody celebrated their "accomplishment"!

    2. Zi Ling (ZJN) looked really feminine and elegant in her outfits - at parties, on the hill, on the beach, en Paris et at a press conference.

    ....... up to Episode 33.

    Dreams Link Main Cast:

    ........ continue ........

    As I said, there was enough humor in Dreams Link to offset the seriousness. The following is one of many humorous occurrences.

    Yun Fan and Zi Ling visited China for various reasons. One day, after Zi Ling's TV interview, Yun Fan drove her home. While stopping for a red light, Yun Fan kissed Zi Ling passionately (looked like the wet-n-wild type). A policeman stopped next to them and advised them to keep moving after the light had turned green. Otherwise, they would be at risk of getting a ticket. Yun Fan was evidently annoyed by the interruption on their "good deed". He told the policeman to just write the ticket and turned around to continue to "attack" Zi Ling's lips. The policeman shook his head chuckling and wrote the ticket. Zi Ling was kinda embarassed and couldn't push Yun Fan away.

    Dreams Link Theme Song:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxyCB...eature=related

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjHdO...eature=related I like 1 or 2 more beautiful shots of Zhang Jia Ni in this variation.

    I have an interesting suggestion. Click the 1st url and then go back to SPCNET immediately and click the 2nd url. There will be 2 separate windows opened. You will hear the theme song being sung in rounds or echoes. Try them.

Alex and ZJN's lovey-dovey scenes make one envious and feeling so romantic and sometimes blood-flooding (almost erotic, hehe! any minors here?!) Man, Alex was the man!! They were probably in those scenes more than 5 times. They probably kissed about 15 times in the series - in different varities, from pecking to puckering to mouthing to biting to ...... maybe not the French variety (......... well, they were in France, you know!). Poor Bao Bao (Bao Jian Feng) only got to squeeze in maybe 2 kisses.

    This girl is 19-20 years old and Alex Fong is how old? Sorry but it's just disgusting. He could be her dad. Just makes me sick.

    You are welcomed Tammy. =)

    Anyway, everyone has their own opinion, according to me she is georgous, can be cute, pretty and elegant. She doesn't look average at all. She is an amazing new actress.

    And GuGu, srry but it's a bit immature your way to see their relationship. One day when you will meet someone you truly love and he would be so much older than you, you will probably see how much the age isn't very important. She didn't marry a men who is going to dead because he is 80 years old!! hey babe, she marry Yun Fan(Alex Fong), just 20 years old more than her, yes it sounds so big difference of age, but Alex Fong is so special, energic, dynamic and still charming, she marry him for love not for money, how can you compare it to a father? It's not disgusting at all, it's not like she marry her brother or father hey babe!, it just shows us how much "love" is powerful and important. Try to open your heart. Bye.

    Hehehehe you speak as if they are really marrying.
    I'm speaking only on them getting paired up as a couple in series.
    Please don't confuse the two.
    In your eyes Alex Fong may be 'special, energic, dynamic, and still charming' but in mine he's just an old and ugly man. It's just aweful to see him molesting a 19-20 year old child in the name of acting.
