[Variety] 偶像来了 “Up Idol” Announces High Profile Cast


  • Cast: Zhao Liying , Guli Nzha, Xie Na (from Happy Camp), Brigitte Lin, Athena Chu, Ada Choi
  • Release date: July 25th, 2015

Super big cast for this variety show! I am really anticipating it is since the show features Ada Choi and Zhao Liying, two really sweet ladies and amazing actresses :3 Also, it is a show that is not (completely) stolen from Korean which these days, is a very precious feature! Here is the show to make you fangirl for your girl crushes. I am not sure myself about the concept just yet, more information in the future🙂 From what I read, it seems a regular cast of female stars challenge themselves in different Chinese culture activities. Something in those lines😛

Here are the posters:


Zhao Liying, beautiful maiden



Guli Nazha! I still have to watch a drama featuring Guli Nazha since I always wanted to discover this actress. Se looks so refreshing and beautiful *.* !


Ada Choi! She is a HK actress who is better known for her portrayal of the Empress in Zhen Huan Zhuan


Ada Choi


Xie Na, the lively MC of Happy Camp

  1. Do you have any idea on which sites this variety show will be aired? Also, can you recommend to me some Chinese variety shows? Thanks^^ I’m not too familiar with them. I only know of Happy Camp, which I also don’t watch often, since episodes with Eng subtitles are hard to come by.

      I can give you the link when it starts airing🙂 but pretty sure it will be uploaded on Youtube by: 中国湖南卫视官方频道 China HunanTV Official Channel and indeed, these shows are hardly English Subbed


      • It’s nice China HunanTV has a YT account, I watched the Season 3 of I Am A Singer. But I had to watch it without subtitles. Are there any other variety shows you know?


      • intellectualkitten says:

        There is We Are in Love (I think the parts of Kimi Qiao and Siwon are eng subbed, but I am not 100% sure) and some episodes of Happy Camp (mostly the ones with Kpop stars :’D). Otherwise, I believe the new Variety Show of Kris Wu and Fan Bingbing will be subbed but it is only starting in August-September. Other popular shows that are not english subbed are: Divas Hit the Road, Run Brother, Dad Where Are you Going, and The Voice😡


      • It did really be super nice if HunanTV can sub the shows they upload on their site. I know the eps with Kpop stars tend to get subbed. But I’m watching Chinese variety shows to have an insights into Chinese stars not Kpop stars lol!!! Thanks Intellectualkitten😀
