Yu Zheng’s claim to fame: The Palace’s awkward cast promos
Yu Zheng’s debut film The Palace premiered in China yesterday, and, I kid you not, the cast promotions for the movie can break records…who’s up for winning the Most Awkward Cast n Crew award? If you think Chen Xiao refusing to look at other costars besides Zhao Liying wasn’t enough, this whole cast of cutie pies and royal princes are basically shy shy and serious.
The cast snaps for press photos for their upcoming premiere:
And then there was the time the cast promoted their movie on Tengxun talk show and had to play a game:
@20 minutes and 30 seconds in – they play charades and it looks like nobody knows how to play or guess and the host has to re-explain the game throughout the entire process that the host even got tired, ending with ‘Aiya ok that’s good enough’ LMAO. From what I see, Chen Xiao only feels truly at home when talking to Zhao Liying and rarely laughs at anyone else’s jokes. Look at more interviews and you’ll see what I mean 😛
Hey – never mind the awkward cast in promos! Let’s talk onscreen: I heard the response for the film was rather positive, for a Yu Zheng debut. Sparks did fly onscreen in the middle of a power struggle between the royalty, but more importantly, between 13th prince and Chen Xiang! (all thanks to the charms and convincing portrayals of our cast) On this blog, more related posts to look out for later this week.
Disclaimer: this is meant to be a lighthearted post wherein I poke fun at the cast promos, please don’t take offense. But I guess Chen Xiao-Li Ying fans won’t really have a problem with this huh. xD
