Huan Zhu Ge Ge (还珠格格), aka My Fair Princess, is a drama which brought me much joy in my primary school days. I remember EVERYONE (Chinese-speaking) was watching it then; it practically shaped a generation of people, in the pop culture sense. After more than a decade since its broadcast, a remake of the drama is currently in the works, and lately the main cast has finally been revealed.

Apparently, plans for a Chinese remake of  the epic Korean romance Autumn in My Heart, aka Endless Love, has been made known for a while and Zhang Han of hit drama Meteor Shower has now been cast in the remake as the lead male. The drama series has already cast its second male lead in Dennis Oh (East of Eden), which makes this drama a high profile Chinese-Korean collaboration.

During the casting process, Chinese pop singer and actor Han Geng (Hankyung) of Super Junior was also a strong contender for the lead male role, but it eventually went to Zhang Han. The drama will begin filming in August at Qingdao, China and is looking at a premiere some time early next year on Hunan TV.

Chae Rim will be making a guest appearance in the Chinese remake of All About Eve as lead actor Jang Hyuk’s precious first love!

Hit Korean drama All About Eve shot its main cast (Jang Dong Gun, Chae Rim, Kim So Yeon, and Han Jae Seok) to stardom back in 2000 and Chae Rim (adorably) expressed her delight at the opportunity to appear in the remake. I also like to think that she’s lending her support to Jang Hyuk as a Sunbae who has made her entry into the Chinese market much earlier with television series such as Princess Sheng Ping, Warriors of the Yang Clan, and Love at the Aegean Sea.

All I can say is: WOW.

Ady An has officially put the mixiu mixiu behind her (perhaps too quickly for the Autumn’s Concerto fans to adapt hahah). In the midst of filming her latest Chinese period drama, Fight and Love with a Terracotta Warrior (古今大戰秦俑情), Ady specially took 3 days of leave to star in Journey to the West (西游记), aka Monkey, the latest drama adaptation of the great classical novel, where she plays the White Bone Demon (白骨精).

Anyone watching this show?

The Chinese drama which stars Lu Yi (Three Kingdoms) and Han Ji Hye (East of Eden) has begun filming at Suzhou. Paradise Embroidery (crudely translated from 天堂绣) centres around embroidery (苏绣), which Suzhou is famed for and is scheduled to air in November on Chinese broadcast station CCTV. Taiwanese actress Maggie Wu also stars.
