Wang Leehom - Poet Li Bai

Fan Bingbing will play imperial consort Yang Guifei, one of the four legendary beauties of Ancient China, in Kwak Jae-Yong's same-titled "Yang Guifei". And Wang Leehom will play poet Li Bai in this China-Japan-South Korea co-production. The core of the story will be centered around war and palace intrigues. Fan Bingbing played the role once before in a 2007 TV series, Tang Paradise. Also, Antoine Fuqua is making another version concerning the romance between Yang Guifei and Tang Emperor Xuanzong. Fuqua had been trying to invite Zhang Ziyi and Chow Yun-Fat but he may make another film about Tupac Shakur first.

I imagine (or at least hope) that Huang Yi approved the distribution of the pictures of her suffering from gastritis--which can be really painful--although she doesn't look like she is shape to do much of anything.

Get well soon to Huang Yi.

Women often say guys are just checking out a woman's breasts, but Wu Renhui is a prefect example of, "hey, if you're going to show off that much, guys AND girls are going to notice (and stare/ gawk)!!!!!

re: Wu Renhui
I don't know who she is. Couldn't find anything about her. But if she wanted to get noticed, then she succeeded! :D
