Chilam Cheung (張智霖) and Gillian Chung (鍾欣桐) star as tragic lovers in upcoming fantasy period film, The Fox Lover <白狐>. The 3D film’s trailer was released on August 5, which features elaborate CG effects and a prominent love scene between Chilam and Gillian.

Adapted from a short story in Pu Songling’s (蒲松齡) supernatural classic Liaozhai Zhiyi <聊齋誌異>, The Fox Lover is about white fox spirit Xiaochui (Gillian Chung), who is irrevocably in love with the naive mortal Wang Yuanfeng (Chilam Cheung). In the universe resides the largest sea demon that strikes terror amongst the people.  Inside Wang’s soul, there is a hidden power able to destroy the fiercest demons. When Xiaochui’s loyalties are tested in the clash between humans and demons, she is willing to sacrifice her life for love. 

When photo stills from The Fox Lover first emerged, netizens ridiculed the character designs, especially Gillian’s crop of blue hair, which was found to resemble the colorful hairstyles from anime, Sailor Moon. However, the hype and interest in the film increased after the trailer was released where Gillian was seen to be donning a rather revealing outfit. Her naked back scene sparked discussions as to whether Gillian had disrobed or used a stunt double to stand in for her.

The Fox Lover will be released on September 28, 2013 in mainland China.

    The costume looks cheap and ugly! The trailer isn’t interesting either so I’ll pass also. But why would Gil need a stunt person to bare their back when the public has seen more sensitive parts of hers already? Don’t make any sense or is she still trying to pull the innocent card?

        Yes, Chi Lam does looks old in this movie. Maybe the makeup isn’t good? The overall production looks like a mess though, the colorful hair and odd looking costumes are such a turnoff. 🙁

      Lol: Gillian’s nude photo incident was unfortunate. Obviously she didn’t want the public to see the photos, so it’s understandable if Gillian had a stunt double for the bare back scene. I actually feel really bad for Gillian about that incident, instead of looking down on her like a lot of people do.

    I agree everyone that Chilam looks old! I don’t know if its the costume or the hair or both but its not flattering on him at all. I admit the trailer does look quite interesting. I look forward to seeing it.

    And The color hair does remind me of Sailor Moon.LOL

    He don’t like that old on the trailer. But he did admit on one of his interviews that he need to work out more so he can firm up.

    The costumes look so anime like. Oh my gosh, Gillian’s costume looks like Sailor Moon… Goodness… Julian does look old. I guess this is a low budget production or something because everything looks so cheap.
