  1. There are some actors I do not want to watch at all, and one of them is Jiro Wang. China has some really horrible young actors, but the current generation of Taiwanese stars are worse. They aren't even pretty to look at, which makes their acting flaws more obvious.

    And despite me having a fondness for Dilraba after 3L3W, I have full faith that her drama with Vin Zhang will flop bad. In fact, I think her drama with Vic Zhou will flop too. One has a horrible plot, the other that plus an awful lead actor. How unfortunate...

    Honestly, none in the August lineup looks good. I'll probably watch Once upon a Time, but that's it.

  2. Looking forward to Les Interpretes 2! I liked YangMi in 3L3W and I watched all of Huang Zitao's movies recently and he is a really good actor. I know he has another drama coming out too around this time so I will be catching that too.

  3. Just curious, how will Les Interpretes 2 relate to the original Les Interpretes? Will Yang Mi play the same character?? Or a whole different one?

    1. The characters are different/unrelated but in a similar setting expect this one is about businesses while the previous one was about working as a translator

  4. This Summer's movie line up sucks. But I can't for the Fighter of the Destiny movie adaptation...
