ma tianyu childhood photo
After Yang Yang showed off a slew of school photos, we have another actor sharing his own batch of childhood nostalgia. If this is going to be a trend, I say keep them coming! Ma Tianyu shows the cutest photo of himself in his younger days. I see puffy red cheeks and a forehead dot too though you can clearly see the resemblance to the actor even as he is in his early thirties now. He definitely lost the baby fat, retained the baby face to grow into a handsome hunk. 
kai ko
Kai Ko was once a rising star in showbiz after his breakout role in the 2011 movie You Are the Apple of My Eye that also put his co-star Michelle Chen on the map. He was young and he had the looks and skill to play leading man roles.  All of that changed five years ago after he was arrested for drug abuse.  Because of his scandal, his projects were cancelled and sponsors dropped him from their advertisements.  
put your head on my shoulder a love so beautiful
Put Your Head On My Shoulder based on the novel by Zhao Qianqian has recently aired. Some elements may seem familiar to people who have seen A Love So Beautiful back in 2017 and you'd be right on the money because both stories are from the same author.

chinese paladin 3 hu ge yang mi liu shishi
When Chinese Paladin 3 仙剑奇侠传3 aired back in 2009, it starred Hu Ge as Jing Tian, Yang Mi as Tang Xuejian, Tiffany Tang Yan as Zi Xuan, Cecilia Liu Shishi as Long Kui and Wallace Huo as Xu Changqing.  It has been 10 years since then and nobody would've imagined that all five of them would become such big names in the showbiz industry.    

Who is the most followed star on Weibo? 

In this day and age where social media is voraciously consumed every second, it is not a big secret that sharing platforms like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook are some of the hottest apps we log on to daily to share some bits and pieces of our lives, stay connected with friends and be updated with our favourite bloggers and celebrities. In China, there's the microblogging website Weibo. Is it any surprise then that celebrities are some of the most followed accounts online?

For the curious reader, here are the top ten Weibo accounts to keep your eye on if you are an avid follower of the Chinese entertainment industry.

Nabbing the top spot is TV host and presenter Xie Na who is famous for co-hosting the popular variety show Happy CampLast year, the new mother to twins also received two Guinness World Record titles for being the first person to accumulate 100 million followers on Weibo as well as having the most followers on Weibo.

jelly lin yun pinky zhou jieqiong kyulkyung
If Zhu Yilong spent his 31st birthday chilling with Li Yifeng, it looks Jelly Lin Yun who also celebrated her birthday on April 16 had other plans. The young actress spent her 23rd bday in the company of Meng Jia, Vava, Zoe Zhang Lanxin, Pinky Zhou Jieqiong and more in a glitzy costume party. I'm clueless as to who they're all supposed to be, but I kind of love Lin Yun's glammed up look. The Mermaid star was immediately hailed among the top 20 of TC Candler's 100 most beautiful faces of 2016 when she first debuted and it's not hard to see why, she's very pretty! 
if i can love you so cdrama poster
TV rankings for April 16th indicate that the top 5 dramas last night have all broken 1% in CSM55 ratings. If I Can Love You So takes the top spot after just a week of airing. It's a good start for the beleaguered show that had been shelved for years and a nice reward for Liu Shishi who is currently away from showbiz due to her pregnancyOf the five, Investiture of the Gods is the only one that doesn't air on primetime. 

1. If I Can Love You So (Hunan TV) 1.104% 
2. Pushing Hands (Zhejiang TV) 1.090% 
3. Investiture of the Gods (Hunan TV) 1.050% 
4. Pushing Hands (Jiangsu TV) 1.029%
5. In Youth (Dragon TV) 1.023%
andy hui admits affair
From all the cherry blossoms and colourful blooms posted all over social media, it definitely looks like spring is in the air. But it seems there must be something "not quite right" with the spring breeze as there has been not just one but two reports of infidelity trending at the same time amongst the C-entertainment set! To think that this has come after the Zhang Danfeng scandal which is, frankly still fresh on everyone's minds. 
Held in the Lonely Castle cdrama Wang Kai
Daylight Entertainment was already a roll with Like A Flowing River and The Story of Minglan when All Is Well continued the streak to become the biggest hit so far this year. I'll always associate good dramas with Daylight now, which brings me to their next project. 

Held in the Lonely Castle 孤城闭 led by Wang Kai, Jiang Shuying, Yang Le, Ren Min and Bian Cheng has released stills of the cast after recently reaching 100 days of filming out of the estimated six months. The colors feel muted compared to most costume dramas we see these days, though it kind of reminds me of The Story of Minglan, which was beautiful without being overpowering. Interestingly, Zhang Kaizhou who directed his first historical with The Story of Minglan is also directing this. The story follows Wang Kai as the Song Dynasty Emperor and the complications in the palace. It is also the actor's return to historical since Nirvana in Fire. It's about time, royal garb suits him.  
Yang Yang childhood photos
Fans of Yang Yang are in for a treat as he has recently shared some personal childhood photos on his Weibo account. The photogenic actor, who even has his very own limited edition China Post postage stamp, can be seen dressed in a green school uniform, albeit a very much younger Yang Yang, standing at attention with quite a serious expression on his face. Looks like he was quite photogenic even then!
ashton chen martial arts school
The last thing that any parent would expect when sending their child to school is for their child to die.  This is exactly what happened to a 6 year old girl named Deng Lin who died two days after her parents sent her to Xiaolong Martial Arts School.  The school is endorsed by Ashton Chen and his father is the principal.  
Li Yifeng Zhu Yilong
I did not know these two were friends, but this moment needs to be framed! At 12:35am on April 16, Li Yifeng greeted Zhu Yilong happy birthday and wished him good luck and happiness forever. As the two were together last night, Li YIfeng said that he didn't even know that Zhu Yilong waited for the clock to strike 12 in his company. Zhu Yilong responds by saying that he slept like a log right after getting home and that he had fun. 
tang yan luo jin
Recently, newlywed celebrity couple Tiffany Tang Yan and Luo Jin who have been relationship goals even before they got together are speculated to be expecting. The two were spotted exiting a hospital in Shanghai in black-clad gear, wearing caps and face masks. 

While it could be anything really, speculations are rife as to the reason for the couple's hospital visit. Some Netizens have been quick to point out that Tang Yan seemed to have gained some weight recently and the hospital visit was in order for the actress to get an ultrasound. The actress previously poked fun at trending over the weight gain as she posted a photo with a simple, "Did I gain weight?"
Song Hye Kyo,
Well well, it sure looks like another Korean superstar is planting both of her feet firmly into the c-drama industry as veteran actress Song Hye-kyo has confirmed signing a contract with internationally acclaimed director Wong Kar Wai's Jet Tone Film Production. The stunning actress recently attended the 38th Hong Kong Film Awards where she co-presented an award (lucky her) with Hong Kong actor Andy Lau. In it, the actress expressed how much she was looking forward to working with talented actors and directors in future Chinese and Hong Kong productions.
investiture of the gods
CSM55 Cities + Online

It's an exciting week in c-dramaland if only for the number of finales and premieres. Catching everyone by surprise is Investiture of the Gods which has broken past 1% in CSM55 ratings on its first week! For a show that's being flayed on user-rated site Douban and airs at the less-watched late evening slot, it's no easy feat.

Nice To Meet You continued to rank in first on TV on its final two days of airing while Youth Fight which also just ended ranked as the top drama online. Pushing HandsYouth Fight and If I Can Love You So are neck and neck as the three shows hit the 1% mark at varying times. In Youth which stars many Jaywalk Studio artists comes close with CSM55 ratings of 0.857%.  
Zhang Danfeng's reputation has hit rock bottom after his scandal broke out earlier this month. Although he hasn't commented on the issue, his silence may prove to be fatal for his career as the negative publicity continues to accumulate.
