Personal Note: Looking forward to Sheren playing a different Yu Fei this time around! :)

Don't really like Ada's blue top, but she looks so pretty...most definitely an ancient beauty! :D

Not used to Moses looking so serious anymore.... :P

Not a fan of Christine's split hair....

Ha ha.... Christine gave herself an English name (Sophie)! :P

He he.... Kenny is wearing a head piece because he hasn't shaved yet....

Always thought that Katy resembles Amy Kwok...she looks even more like her here! :P

Alice's look reminds me of Christine's look in "Wars of In-Laws"....

  1. hyn5, do you know why there will be no bed scenes or homosexual scenes? It's not like Chik has not had that in his series before? So much for the "fresh" part that many have said after watching the sales clip (even though we all know that sales clips are not the actual script).

    1. Guessing that there will be "feelings" between females, and that the "relationship" will not be as overt.

  2. :( very disappointed. Why did they scratch that idea it was so fresh and the story within a story too! I wonder if it's because they couldn't get approval or that Sheren and Ada doesn't want to film such a story? Not as interesting but I still look forward to WAB2 due to the cast. Just hope it won't be another grand production that flops due to poor script.

  3. I'm fine with the no bed scenes lol but the homosexual scenes would really freshen things up and I'm a bit disappointed that they didn't include it in. Oh well, I'm still looking forward to this! I think I may like this better than the first one.

  4. I thought Katy is Ada's younger sister, but you wrote "Katy Kung will play Buyamuqi Muduer (布雅穆齊‧木都兒), Ada's daughter."

    1. Was confused because @ckwok said that Katy is Ada's younger sister, but Katy later Weibo-ed saying that Ada is her mother.

    2. Ada clarified in her Weibo that she will be playing Katy's stepmom.
