Wu Hao Ze

What can I say about this actor? Underrated, perhaps. No, you don't see him as the main character, yet I feel he should be. Still, he's a character actor and always makes his characters worthy to spot. I love his latest character in My Mowgoli Boy. First, he comes off so suave, yet his Ling is very complicated from a blended family and is the traditional Momma's boy who will do whatever she says. Still, that doesn't make him too good. As the drama progresses, you see how he's never really got to think for himself nor had a chance to really enjoy life. Soon he's trapped in a loveless marriage and just might be the darkest character on the show. He is one of my favorites in this Chinese drama. All I can say..more dramas, please! He lapsed there a few years since his last drama. I am not sure what else he does, but I'm sure its something entertaining. Here's to more drama! Wu Hao Ze!

Wu Hao Ze's acting style reminds me a lot of Korean actor Park Ki Woong which is always full of surprises. Woong can be quite the villain, but I like his softer side best. He truly has a way of not faking being the good guy. Oh, and both can wear just about anything that you know they would be at ease on the catwalk (even if they might be shorter than most male models)

The Babysitters Coven

Adventures in Babysitting meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this funny, action-packed novel about a coven of witchy babysitters who realize their calling to protect the innocent and save the world from an onslaught of evil.

Seventeen-year-old Esme Pearl has a babysitters club. She knows it's kinda lame, but what else is she supposed to do? Get a job? Gross. Besides, Esme likes babysitting, and she's good at it.

And lately Esme needs all the cash she can get, because it seems like destruction follows her wherever she goes. Let's just say she owes some people a new tree.

Enter Cassandra Heaven. She's Instagram-model hot, dresses like she found her clothes in a dumpster, and has a rebellious streak as gnarly as the cafeteria food. So why is Cassandra willing to do anything, even take on a potty-training two-year-old, to join Esme's babysitters club?

The answer lies in a mysterious note Cassandra's mother left her: "Find the babysitters. Love, Mom."

Turns out, Esme and Cassandra have more in common than they think, and they're about to discover what being a babysitter really means: a heroic lineage of superpowers, magic rituals, and saving the innocent from seriously terrifying evil. And all before the parents get home.
