General and I Angelababy Wallace Chung
General and I 孤芳不自赏 releases posters of the main leads appearing forlorn yet expressive in a contrasting black and white concept. Wallace Chung commands in warrior's clothing and Angelababy is flawless as she dons a simple fur coat. 

Wallace Chung plays Chu Bei Jie of Jin, a general whose accomplishments are known throughout the four kingdoms and whose mere presence instills fear amongst his enemies. 

Bai Pin Ting is the handmaiden of Jing An Wang of Yan but she is brought up as Jing An Wang's own daughter. Her talent as a strategist helped her country in many ways but she is forced to flee after an incident that leads her right into the arms of Chu Bei Jie, her enemy and her lover. 

The series premieres Jan. 2, 2016 on Hunan TV.

  1. The posters look good. Do you have any idea how Angelababy got her name? It is so unique.

    In related fact, this may seem silly, but I get so curious how Chinese actors get their English names. Are they given at birth? Or chosen to appeal to an English audience as they begin their acting careers?

    1. lol i looked it up on wikipedia. Apparently, Angela is her English name and baby is her nickname, hence the stage name Angelababy.

      It's probably different for everyone for example my name is in english even though I'm ethnically Chinese but I think in China it's probably Chinese name first and stage name later, i would think it depends on the household:) Are u still watching When A Snail? I'm so behind on that one.. watching Princess Weiyoung these days.

    2. Then I'm very curious as to how they choose stage names. I'm very curious.

      I'm still watching Snail and enjoying it very much. How's Princess Weiyoung? I was worried it would be a NiF knock-off, but by all accounts, it is excellent. I'm gonna start watching after my exams

    3. Nope, not a knock off. I think Weiyoung is in a different category altogether other than a similarity with the revenge plot. It's so addictively good though, my family watches it together and we hardly ever do that. Good look with exams, hope it ends soon so u can watch:)
