Henry serenades Thai fans. Zhou Mi throws a punch.

Today the trailer for When Love Walked In was released. The drama stars F(x)'s Victoria, Fahrenheit's Calvin Chen, and Super Junior M's Zhou Mi as main characters.



Fans don't really understand what is going on with the sound on this trailer, or if the entire show will be dubbed, and both Chinese and International fans are in agreement that the dubbing is bloody awful. It has, however, been suggested on Weibo by members of the cast that the broadcast will not be dubbed (I can't be sure about this since I'm going off Google Chrome's translation. Any Chinese speakers, please, correct me if I'm wrong).
In the mean time, enjoy a trailer of awkward kisses, loads of drama, and Zhou Mi throwing a punch.






Henry Lau, Super Junior's youngest, has recently finished filming 'Cooktales' in Thailand. The last day of shooting was the 14th of June, but he stuck around in Thailand to relax and explore. As a little present for this fans in Thailand, Henry sang a little song via his youtube channel. 
Cooktales is rumoured to be released late 2012 or early 2013. Super Junior M is due to have a comeback later this year.Henry should be able to attend all future SMTown concerts.

In the meantime, have some adorable photographs of Henry with cute children.

Whoever's dubbing queen vic's voice is making me cringe like no other
sobaek 19th-Jun-2012 08:07 pm (UTC)
the female voices are frigging terrible and seriously irritating.

I was really confused because the voice at around 1.16 sounds like Zhou Mi, but then he's dubbed as well.
General concenus is 'ew this dubbing is bad'
murderistx 19th-Jun-2012 08:07 pm (UTC)
That was more like 6 minutes of spoilers than a trailer.
But Vic's voice-over in the beginning is so lovely. She sounds like those audio-story speakers.

FLAWLESS BB !

Hate the dub but I'll sit through it for Qiannie.

sobaek 19th-Jun-2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
same but I'll sit through it for Zhou Mi.

And Liu Chao.

LOL why would this actually need to be dubbed? The leads are all fluent in Mandarin right...? I liked the song playing halfway through.

tiggie0307 19th-Jun-2012 08:39 pm (UTC)
That was...well that lols Storyline looks simple but fights, back stabbing, lost loves kinda almost regained makes for good dramas. Plus ZhouMi And Victoria. I'll watch it.
the_erotomanic 19th-Jun-2012 08:41 pm (UTC)
henry is so adorable. super junior m needs to release more music, so i can hear his voice more.

who's that other guy with zhoumi and calvin chen at the start of the trailer? he's hot.

trailer needs more victoria (and zhou mi). and why are they being dubbed?
drfaith101 Why the dub?19th-Jun-2012 08:47 pm (UTC)
There’s a lot of people asking about this (why ‘When Love Walked In’ is dubbed when all the leads speak Chinese fluently), so I felt like doing a post on dubs and why a lot of Chinese dramas, especially mainland ones, have dubbing.

Dubbing happens in a lot of dramas, regardless of who is acting, for two main reasons. One is due to the fact that the production is cheap (they aren’t spending a lot of time or effort on sound). Another is to keep one consistent accent.

China is so big, and actors in dramas come from so many other regions - Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mongolia, etc. - that the accents can vary dramatically from actor to actor. Usually, dramas like keeping the “standard” accent to have a consistency so any non-mainland actors are usually dubbed. In this case, one example would be Calvin, who is a Taiwanese actor and thus lacking the standard accent.

Another big reason is that, honestly, there usually is just bad sound quality. The dramas ignore it in favor of other aspects of filming like positioning. Sound equipment isn’t given as much important so for things like heavy wind, distance from camera/mic, and others…the voices are completely inaudible or not very clear. So they have to re-do it through dubs in the studio Whether the original artist goes back to dub over his/her own voice is hard to say because all actors/actresses are always so busy - so often (especially more famous leads) they are unable to go back.

Usually, dubbing is due to a mixture of these two. ‘When Love Walked In’ is definitely a mixture of the two. Some actors are from overseas. Zhoumi and Victoria are obviously very busy. Dubbing becomes the go-to thing. Sometimes dubbing can get really good voices. Sometimes, not. In this case, some actors/actresses of ‘When Love Walked In’ DID go back and re-dub in their own voices (though none of the leads did). Unfortunately, it looks like Victoria and Zhoumi did not have the time to do that.

Anyways. This is why. ^_^ An unfortunate aspect of quite a few dramas, but not an abnormal one.

P.S. Regarding whether ‘When Love Walked In’ is a Taiwanese drama or not - it’s not quite. It’s actually a mainland/Taiwan collaboration. It’s set in the mainland and produced by a mainland company (although some say it’s co-produced by a Taiwan company as well). It’ll be aired by GTV in Taiwan (although it is not produced by them) and a few mainland channels.

my angel henry brb playing this forever
uledy 19th-Jun-2012 08:49 pm (UTC)
I don't understand why this teaser is dubbed. It's horrible and reason why I'm STILL struggling to finish "Skip Beat".

But everyone looks wonderful and I really excited to ogle watch Vic and Zhou Mi.
prismboy 19th-Jun-2012 09:11 pm (UTC)
Hoping the broadcast isn't dubbed because I don't think I can watch it if it is. :(
hipployta 19th-Jun-2012 09:30 pm (UTC)
That was VIc on the voiceover right?

Calvin...you know I love you but for the love of God EAT SOMETHING. All those Fahrenheit boys are steadily losing more and more weight...though Jiro looks FAB in Absolute Boyfriend.

This dubbing...Vic, Mimi, and Calvin...PLEASE go back and re-dub your voices.

Here's a translation via KhuntoriaLurve @ Tumblr and Poga...they are going to sub it later...though subbed gifs are floating around

[English] ‘When Love Walked In’ (English Transcript)

Before we start, if you hate the (fail) snarkiness (it’s late! I couldn’t do anything too creative or funny!) - for one, I intend to sub this (without the snarkiness) so this is just a rough transcript for now and I couldn’t do it all without SOME comments (and I’m way too lazy to delete them). Two…I’ve watched almost all of Calvin’s dramas. Or tried to. I don’t dislike him as a person but as an actor, I can’t deal with him. I’m sorry. Three…this just entertains me. LOL.

Since this is a fan tumblr (and I should be a respectful admin, right? ^_^) and not my personal one, I allowed the comments to be taken out! Sorry. If you want to read the snarkiness, just visit the original post. -poga

On the bright side, Victoria is so wonderfully gorgeous! *sobs* So proud of her. And her acting - she looks amazing and her acting seems great.

———

Please credit me in full if you take this out. Thanks. ^_^

Victoria = Shen Ya Yin
Zhoumi = Lu Shang Lin
Calvin = Qin Yu Jiang

00:13 “Don’t be afraid. I’ll protect you forever.”

00:22 (Victoria voiceover) “Even until now, I can’t forget that little boy and that glass globe. That year we separated, he said he’d come back and told me to wait for him.”

00:30 (Bridge Scene) “Did he really return? If he returned and couldn’t find me, would he think that I’ve forgotten him?”

Victoria: “I’ve returned! Are you still here? Where are you, exactly?”

1: 06 “You three…whoever can find Yayin and earn her trust, is my future grandson-in-law, and you could be my future successor.”

1:17 “The three of us are the best friend, but the CEO gave us this difficult issue for us to compete. But we are always unable to reject it or withdraw. Whatever happens, our relationship does not change. We are always best friends.”

1:30 “Imagine, if my daughter is the Yuan family granddaughter, then won’t we prosper?”

“Mom, you want me to pretend to be Ya Yin?”

1:40 “Grandfather.”

“Now, I want to officially tell everyone - this is my granddaughter, Ya Yin.”

1:49 “But isn’t Shen Ah Yin me?”

1:51 “Yi Ru.”

“Don’t ever call me that. Under this roof, never call me that name.”

“Older Sister, how can you say that? She’s our mother!”

“Under this roof, she isn’t my mother either!”

“How could you say that? How could you say I’m not your mother?”

“I said it long ago. Once we began this ruse, we’ll act it to the end. If you guys don’t listen to my words, just leave now. Better than staying and ruining it.”

hipployta 19th-Jun-2012 09:30 pm (UTC)
2:26 “The girl you have here, she isn’t Shen Ya Yin. She’s just pretending to be your granddaughter.”

“What?”

“Even this kind of thing, you guys can do? You truly have no hearts.” (It’s an idiom that basically means they did something horrible/unforgiveable).

“CEO, I know I did wrong. It’s all my fault for thinking of this kind of thing. I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Please forgive us.”

2:43 “You must continue searching. You can’t leave anything else. Whatever happens, you MUST find my granddaughter.”

2:49 “Do you still remember, the girl who came that time when we asked the Chen family’s restaurant to send food.”

Victoria: “I came to send food.”

“She’s the true Shen Ya Yin. Your true granddaughter.”

“It’s her?”

3:00 “Introducing my granddaughter, Shen Ya Yin.”
(…)

Calvin: “Why are you here?”

Victoria: *mehrong*

Victoria: “Qin Yu Jiang” *kisses him*

“You!…What are you doing?”

3:23 Zhoumi: “I truly like Ya Yin. This has nothing to do with the pressure my father is giving me.

3:30 “Yu Jiang, I like you. Ever since I was small I’ve liked you, even until now. “

3:47 “Ya Yin. Let’s not hide from it any longer. Let’s date.”

“Yu Jiang…”

4:09 “Ya Yin. I did something unforgivable. And I can never forgive myself for it.”

4:18 Zhoumi: “If you decide to be with Ya Yin, then you can’t harm her! Or I’ll never forgive you!”

Calvin: “If you were me, for the sake of protecting Ya Yin, don’t tell me you wouldn’t do the same thing!”

Zhoumi “I-”

4:27 Calvin:”If we don’t fix this now, my scandal will become the company’s scandal. At that time Grandfather and Ya Yin will fall with me.”

4:36 “So the only solution is that you reject me”

Victoria: “I can’t do it”

Calvin: “But I really don’t have no choice. I can bear it all, but I know Ya Yin won’t be able to. I can deal with anything else, but I cannot deal with Ya Yin suffering like this.”

4:57 Calvin: “So Shang Lin, let’s say it is me begging you. Start chasing Ya Yin wholeheartedly.”

5:05 “Ya Yin. Forget me, please. If I’m the thorn in your heart, then please pluck this thorn from your heart. Before it pricks someone else.”

5:15 Victoria: “Okay. I’ve heard what you said. And I know I shouldn’t delay anymore. But I need some time to think it over.”

Calvin: “Of course you can. But the condition is I hope you accept Shang Lin. Or I’ll forever disappear. Forever disappear from everyone’s sight.”

5:40 Calvin: “The engagement between Miss Shen Ya Yin and I has been cancelled. Now all that remains is the simple relationship of colleagues.”

Calvin (placing ring back in her hand): “From now on, I , Qin Yu Jiang, truly separate from you.”

6:03: “Don’t be afraid. I’ll protect you forever.”

dooood calvin chen is taller than zhou mi? i always think of mimi as a giant.....
sobaek 19th-Jun-2012 09:40 pm (UTC)
Zhou Mi is around 6ft? Calvin is apparently 184cm which is around 6ft as well. So...either Zhou Mi isn't quite 6ft or Calvin is a touch taller.
shocko_o 19th-Jun-2012 09:36 pm (UTC)
so much melo :(
i dont think i could watch this even for vic or calvin, there's one too many melodrama conflicts that remind me of bad past melodramas (lost rich grandchild, impersonation, brotherly fighting, slightly lackluster acting), unless this gets good reviews. pretty trailer though.
hipployta 19th-Jun-2012 09:37 pm (UTC)
Also....I would punch that second lead in the face since her Mom slapping her obviously doesn't have the intended effect

Why you gotta do Calvin like that?
dorkiilove 19th-Jun-2012 09:38 pm (UTC)
OTL please...stop...dubbing....dramas.............
honeyfunnybunny 19th-Jun-2012 10:17 pm (UTC)
what is it that henry is filming for? i've been out of it although i have noticed him tweeting a lot in thai.

but aweeee, that song and intro was the sweetest ever - and his accent is so good cause i understood everything without having to concentrate.
sobaek 19th-Jun-2012 10:22 pm (UTC)
Henry has been in Thailand shooting a film with Michelle Yeoh called 'Cooktales'. He's just wrapped up :3
greengirly22 19th-Jun-2012 10:29 pm (UTC)
This storyline sounds atrocious. I could deal with the dubbing but I just can't with this story.
sobaek 19th-Jun-2012 10:34 pm (UTC)
I love Zhou Mi enough to sit through all kinds of shit.

Though I will probably laugh.
At everything.
___varying 19th-Jun-2012 11:08 pm (UTC)
Lol the dialogue and the plot (and that title) are so Taiwanese idol drama-esque. xD I don't actually think the dubbing is too bad; I've sat through horrendous Mandarin dubs of K-dramas because that was the only way my grandma could understand them, and those were far squeakier/more annoying.

IDG how this is a 'teaser trailer' - isn't this practically half (or more) of the plot already? (And it's the first, so there are more to come?) Hmm.
p3rk3le 19th-Jun-2012 11:10 pm (UTC)
i cant with the dub. vic is gorgeous! henry be more cute, i dare you.
pistolkrystle 19th-Jun-2012 11:50 pm (UTC)
I don't care what u all say I loved this! I'll watch it dubbed or not.
(as long as they sub)

I came to the post just to see Queen Victoria, but strangely her parts were the only "awkward" parts idk if it was the dubbing but her character didn't flow in with the rest.
jia_zhang 20th-Jun-2012 01:12 am (UTC)
This drama in general looks TERRIBLE (as most mainland dramas tend to be, sans wuxia stuff), but gawd it's Vic and Calvin and I want to watch this for that alone. >_< They look really beautiful as a couple.
hipployta 20th-Jun-2012 02:44 am (UTC)
When Calvin stood up towering over Vic...my heart skipped a beat...I didn't expect them to be so...PRETTY together and I've been following all the BTS stuff all along too
sirhin 20th-Jun-2012 02:00 am (UTC)
The dubbing makes me cringe. Please don't. However, I'll probably give this a go just because of the cast. ^^;

AHHHH! HENRY!!!! :D
aussiebaka 20th-Jun-2012 02:33 am (UTC)
This Henry kid has always given me all these adorable feels and I'm not sure where to put them but me gusta.

The show on the other hand looks fucking terrible, tbh.
Doesn't help that I hate Celvin Calvin though. Sorry.

Now that EXO-M is around... what's gonna happen to SJM??? I need more Henry and Zhou Mi in my life! You could just even make them a duo, or let Henry go solo...
sobaek 20th-Jun-2012 06:50 am (UTC)
SJM is due to come back in November. There's some rumours that SJM and ExoM will share a promo in Taiwan but I honestly think that's a whole load of bullshit. SM will just rotate their activities, the way they do with their groups in Korea. One entertainment company can have more than one group in a market, no one has to disappear to make room for someone else...

But I do hope Henry and Zhou mi get some other project.
freepureangel 20th-Jun-2012 03:40 am (UTC)
This is what happens when you don't voice over Mandarin speakers:

cienaeche 20th-Jun-2012 05:32 am (UTC)
lol she sounds sooo cantonese
xxmannequin 20th-Jun-2012 05:23 am (UTC)
Zhou Mi, the bright light in this horrible drama.
I might watch it because of his handsome self.
