As you may already know, our favorite actress is starring in the second season of a reality show called “Viva La Romance“, which premiered in China on February 14th.

Charles and I will not relay any information about “Viva La Romance” for several reasons that will be explained here.

We probably share the same opinion as most of you that Ziyi is a wonderful and talented actress worth admiring. We’ve always respected her integrity and career choices (even if we can be somewhat disappointed to see her act in commercial movies such as Cloverfield and Godzilla). During the past few years, Ziyi appeared on several TV reality shows such as X-Factor, The Birth of An Actor / I Am an actor. Each time we thought that she was trying something fresh and new and that it was a good thing. But our feeling concerning “Viva la Romance” is different. The exposure of her private life and marriage that comes with starring in this reality show is not something that we want to promote or have any interest in. That’s why we chose to not update anything about it

We still support Ziyi and will always do. We just hope to see her in more great Chinese films and we are very excited about her first TV drama.

The Hollywood Reporter finally confirmed the participation of Ziyi in the Chinese blockbuster Climbers directed by Daniel Lee. She will star as the meteorologist alongside Wu Jing, Jackie Chan, Hu Ge and Jing Boran. The filming is currently underway and it shouldn’t be too long before we see some pictures of footages of the film.

The film will dramatize the real-life expedition of Chinese climbers Wang Fuzhou, Gonpo and Qu Yinhua, who made a historic ascent up Mount Everest’s North Ridge in 1960. The Chinese team was the first to successfully climb Everest’s north side, which is known to be especially perilous. The trio famously left a small statue of Chairman Mao atop the summit before returning midway down the mountain to rescue a fourth member of their team who was unable to complete the climb.

Alongside Wu and Chan, the two other climbers in the group will be played by popular young actor Jing Boran (Monster Hunt, Us and Them) and television star Hu Ge (Chinese Paladin, 1911). Actress Zhang Ziyi rounds out the star-studded cast as a Chinese meteorologist who assists the mission.

Happy birthday to our dearest Ziyi <3
