Background
In the first lunar month of 645, Tang Taizong led his armies from Luo-yang 洛陽 on a punitive expedition against Koguryŏ, the kingdom in southern Manchuria and northern Korea.

The campaign was triggered by events dating back to 642. In that year, Yŏn Kaesomun 原蓋蘇文 (d. 666), an official of Koguryŏ’s eastern circuit,
Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!
had murdered the king and a host of high-ranking officials, put a nephew of the king on the throne and appointed himself as mangnichi 莫離支. This office gave him control over the civil and military affairs of the state.

For centuries, Koguryŏ’s kings had received Chinese recognition of their status through a system of enfeoffment from the emperors, although this was largely a nominal relationship. Ko Kŏnmu 高建武 (r. 618–42) received his investiture from Tang Gaozu 唐高祖 (r. 618–26) and was thus a vassal of the Tang emperors. When the news of the coup reached Taizong in December 642, he considered it his duty to avenge his vassal’s death, punish the perpetrator and restore order in Koguryŏ. Although in theory all investitures entailed this responsibility, few emperors acted upon it. Taizong, too, first attempted a diplomatic solution. Only when it became clear in the early months of 644 that Yŏn Kaesomun would not co-operate, did the emperor state his intention to lead a punitive expedition in person. All but one of Taizong’s advisors vehemently opposed his personally leading the army, but he disregarded their counsel. Preparations for the expedition started in the autumn of 644. These included building ships for transporting provisions, and gathering intelligence on the enemy’s situation in Liaodong 遼東.



On the 1st of April 645, under the pretext of marching to camp Huaiyuan, Tang forces led by

Tang attacked Ansi Fortress with several siege weapons including catapult and battering ram. However Goguryeo repelled the attacks and repaired the ramparts each time. As a result, Taizong was furious and Li Shi asked to massacre all the men and women if the fortress was captured. After Anshi people heard this, they defended the fortress more tenaciously, the Tang Army's assaults were repelled several times. When the Geonan fortress attack came to a standstill, Tang was in a hurry. So Tang Army attacked the west side of the fortress as many as six or seven times per day.

One night, hundreds of Goguryeo soldiers climbed out of the fortress and attempted to attack the Tang Army. When Taizong heard about it, he called up soldiers to make an emergency jointly attack, killed dozens of enemies, and the rest of the Goguryeo soldiers fled back to the fortress. Under the leadership of Tang's prince Li Daozong, Tang force attempted to build a rampart in the southeastern corner of the fortress, gradually approaching the wall. Meanwhile, the external wall was constantly raised by the garrison. Li Daozong was injured in the battle. The Tang used 500,000 laborers and soldiers to build the rampart and the top of the rampart was only a few feet away from the fortress.

It overlooked the city downward. Fu Fuai, one commander of the Tang Army, stationed his troops on the top of the rampart. However, Fu Fuai left the camp privately and the rampart suddenly fell, at last Goguryeo army occupied the rampart. Taizong was very angry and put Fu Fuai to death. After that, Tang tried to regain the rampart for 3 days by turning loose on there but Tang failed. The Goguryeo army reinforcements has arrived and Taizong had failed to capture the Ansi Fortress. In addition, the weather was getting colder and food ran out. So Tang unavoidably retired.

Well Chinese company decide to remake the "little Nyonya drama series" to introduce the "baba nyonya" to the wider Chinese audience with the original creator Ang Eng Tee. But using mainly Chinese mainland and Taiwan actor and actress with no real Baba or nyonya cast like the original one that give it a bit of authenticity "Janet Aw and Pierre Ng " performances was good and so the rest of the cast

I have reservation about this series Since it is fiction but has no relation to real Baba and Nyonya culture other than costume and typical family plot.
But I am glad it introduce to much wider audience in Chinese world the existence of Peranakan culture. Because we still retain very much the best of Chinese culture has to offer like the principle of honor, compassion, family and Manner, respect for tradition and custom
So the story does not reflect the cultural aspect but It does show some aspect of tradition and customs. I hope the director will bring more of the cultural aspect of the peranakan to wider Chinese world and remind them of the great Chinese culture But I doubt that

Jointly produced by Chinese companies iQiyi and Changxin Pictures, and Singapore company G.H.Y Culture & Media, the series will wrap up shooting by January 2019. Filming will be at locations including Johor Baru, Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai and Haikou.

Chinese sci-fi novel 'The Three-Body Problem' makes a buzz in Japan

4edd2ef0c0a3413494da20790de87285.png


It took 11 years for Chinese science-fiction novelist Liu Cixin's Hugo-Award-winning book "The Three-Body Problem" to reach its Japanese readers, and only less than a week to emerge as the talk of the town.

On July 4, the first part of Liu's sci-fi trilogy went on sale in Japan, reaching the top of Amazon's bestselling literary fiction in the country on the same day. On the following day, the Japanese translator of the book, Nozomi Omori, wrote on his Twitter account that the publisher was preparing for the third printing.

As of Wednesday, books from the 10th printing batch have been delivered to bookstores across the country, according to the publisher, Hayakawa Publishing Corporation. A total of 86,000 was printed within the first week.

The publishing house was quite confident about the sales of the book, saying that the bookstores have no need to worry about the sales of sci-fi novels at all.

"The buzz brought by 'The Three-Body Problem' has been sprawling beyond sci-fi fans," they said.

Warm reactions from Japanese fans

A number of Japanese celebrities have turned into Liu fans and spared no effort to recommend the novel on social media.

Hideo Kojima, Japan's top video game designer, is also a big fan of the novel. He tweeted about the book several times, sharing his feelings and recommending it to Japanese readers.

"I finished reading 'The Three-Body Problem' in one go. My goodness! It has been long since I read such a grand and genuine sci-fi novel. All the subject matters are contemporary, but the historical background, the scientific knowledge, and literary significance make it stand out from the rest," said the designer.

He also wrote a recommendation on the book jacket, saying that it is "a miracle-like surrealistic sci-fi novel which was born at the Lagrangian point of popularity, entertainment and literariness."

Japanese director Yu Irie said it is a book that contains human history, great for "the unbelievable imagination and profound knowledge."

Issui Ogawa, who is also a sci-fi writer winner of the Seiun and Hayakawa Awards in Japan, said reading Liu's novel is like reading "James Hogan and Robert J. Sawyer with Chinese flavors."

"I forgot to make a reservation at the library for 'The Three-Body Problem' and there are 20 people waiting in line right now. I'll need to buy a copy myself," a reader said.

"I couldn't stop until I finished reading it. It was crazy, and I can't wait to read the next volume. It is one of the 'must-read-now' types of literature," another Japanese reader mentioned.

Literature exchange between China and Japan

Akira Yamaguchi, chief editor at Hayakawa Publishing Corporation, who is in charge of publishing "The Three-Body Problem," said that the buzz about the novel could be an opportunity for greater communication in terms of literature between China and Japan.

"It could no doubt lead the Japanese readers to more Chinese novels, and we are confident that 'The Three-Body Problem' could be a bestseller here," said Yamaguchi. The chief editor also added that the publishing corporation has been planning to invest more in the exploration of the Chinese book market.

"We hope not only sci-fi novel fans, but people from various backgrounds, such as engineers, scientists, researchers, scholars, and all the intellectuals would get to know [about] Chinese novels," he added.

He said that the non-English sci-fi works might be the next trend and China is a main contributor to Asian sci-fi works.

Yamaguchi mentioned that he was impressed by three characteristics of the Chinese sci-fi works: marvelous imagination, anxiety over rapidly-developed economy and technology, as well as fear of the unknown future.

"Compared to Japanese writers' focus on cyber-punk, most of the Chinese sci-fi novels are hard sci-fi works," said the chief editor.

Though it is hard to say what the novel's popularity could bring for the literature and culture of both countries, it could open a door for people to learn more about each other.

"The film 'Spirited Away' debuted in Chinese cinemas 18 years later and the Japanese version of 'The Three-Body Problem' 11 years after its launch. Such 10-year delay would be much shorter in the future, right?" a Japanese reader commented after reading Liu's novel.

The top TV drama hit in 2021 is a 23 episodes poverty eradication drama in China

TV drama on rural China's poverty alleviation transformation twice tops popularity chart
February 1, 2021
"Minning Town," a TV drama revolving around poverty eradication, has twice topped the weekly popularity chart for Chinese-language TV series on the review platform Douban.

Set in northwest China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region from the 1990s to the present day, the production shows how villagers from Xihaigu, one of the country's most uninhabitable areas, have triumphed over destitution under the guidance of China's poverty alleviation policies and with assistance from the coastal province of Fujian.

The Chinese title "Shan Hai Qing" roughly translates to "Mountain and Sea Love," which in itself implies the joining of hands by Ningxia and Fujian.

Produced by Daylight Entertainment, the company behind many popular Chinese TV dramas, the star-studded show soon became an online sensation and won praise from media outlets and internet users alike following its release on Jan. 12.

It has won the top spot on Douban's weekly popularity chart for Chinese-language TV series for a second time, boasting a rating of 9.4 out of 10 based on more than 150,000 reviews, according to the latest rankings.
