This is a random pic spamming post of hotness! Thunder and lightning struck me so randomly out of the blue one day, while I was watching Painted Skin 1 (just so that I could check out Painted Skin 2), I realised! For the glory of hot men, why haven’t I been hoarding Chen Kun stuff all this while, this LONG?! Why why why? Not that the movie was great, not that the characters were captivating, but heck, you don’t mess with pretties who can burn stuff into ash. Dun even mention Vicki and Zhou Xun (who literally stole hearts of men in different ways in it), I think even CK managed to steal some of their thunder in the movie o_0. It’s utter travesty, to my principles of having to scour and save pics of hotness of the internet once heart is captured, this came insanely overdue.
Let the random hotness begin!
Something about CK, amongst the prettiest of his prettiest, he looks best in black and white (I mean the photos). In some way the contrast of both colors accentuate his features a tad more, makes him look a lot more charismatic and sensual, and totally ups his heaty hotness to major naughty levels. I think he’s insanely pretty, and can be smexyhot if he wants to, but you know he never really got to my radar until I saw him act. I’ve had my share of prejudice against him in the past (so as with other pretty actors and starlets), he genuinely just came off as a pretty boy who danced and sang. That’s it, oh yeah, and had dark skin. But after some hot sexting funny feminine like performances (all so different from each other), I’m impressed! He’s got chops, and he’s got thoughts (I follow his weibo and he posts really good stuff, and I mean really good and meaningful ones).
Lucky dog! And I need a fan right now! *sweats*
TBRH I haven’t seen that many projects of his, to count, perhaps 4 or 5? But his most memorable came in a portrayal of 2 different characters in the movie The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate (which was an utterly MEEEHHHHHH movie, wasted all the actors in it). He played both playful naughty and a male drag in it, and I was o__0, that’s something to call near home if you ask me. He was soooo effective and convincing I can’t help but lament, only if the script was better. Being pretty does help a whole lot, cos he is, but telling and differentiating 2 characters so drastically apart, I can’t help but be impressed. My fav of his, most probably his char in Mulan. Movie was a huge success but a critical flop, I don’t quite remember the details, but I do remember loving it A LOT (perhaps due to his wondrous chemistry with buddy Vicki ZW). His character went all out for Mulan, and I remember giving all of my heart to him the same.
Insane pretty much? Don’t think you can argue with me on that.
Did some research, found out some stuff on CK and his leading ladies. He’s got a bunch of them, the famous ones ranging from Zhou Xun to Yang Mi and to his buddy Vicki. They’re all amazing beauties in their own league, with their own forte to hold in the acting department. We’re bound to combust into air just seeing him with the ladies. Well him alone suffices. I read he’s got chemistry with almost every single one of them (who wouldn’t, even a dead object would I reckon!). But it’s his buddy bromance with Vicki which interests and intrigues me the most. Believe me, I’ve been searching and watching their vids off Youtube these days, non-stop whenever I had time! Staunch fan and believer of RL friendships and bromances. How lovely.
CK and ZW who’ve been friends for almost 15 years! They’ve collaborated about 3-4 times if I’m not wrong. I’ve only seen Mulan and Painted Skin 1, and darn, they just burned my screeeeens. Amazing electrifying heart-palpitating chemistry. I’m sure many have shipped them in the past, and would have continued to do so if ZW hadn’t gotten married. But anyways, it’s still good to see them being really buddy buddy like with each other. Friendship FTW!
Some old but very cute funny vids of the 2 of them I’d found off youtube: –
And last but not least, a Mulan MV that made me tear up in bed last night: –
I need to watch Painted Skin 2 NOW.
Thursday movie date with friends better happen!
