Things seem to be getting even messier for Our Glamorous Time 你和我的倾城时光 as another actress Xu Xiyan speaks out about the show's real life drama. There were complaints that the story focused too much on the characters Grace and Ning Weikai. Grace is not in the original books by Ding Mo. 

After actress Cao Xiwen who plays Grace typed a long rebuttal to deny that she hogged the screen time for herself, another cast member took to weibo to contradict her.

In Xu Xiyan's weibo post, she claims that Cao Xiwen:
- found a way to replace one person (implied to be Zhu Zixiao) a third into the drama. As a result, Zhao Liying had to redo many scenes that were already filmed before. 
- instructed her own screenwriter to reduce Zhu Hanjing's scenes and dissolve her cp, turning an important book character into a minor one. 
- wanting to compare about everything when she is not even the leading lady.
- not showing up for her schedules and letting others cover for her.
- 'teaching' the director how film and 'teaching' the actors how to act.

  2. So the Peter Zhu thing does make sense. He was seen filming then towards the end, this other actor came on and re did his Ning Wei Kai scenes. Now Peter Zhu has been suppressed in cent for some years so I figured someone high up didnt want him to be on this drama. I do like the current actor for this role but I was sad that they cut him last moment.
    So much drama.

  3. Zhao was known to cut her hair without permission so she had to redo her scenes. The proof was obviously in the wigs...

    1. The production already clarified ZLY didn’t interfere with the hair cutting. Stop dragging her into this.

  4. ohh drama within a drama. while it is kinda of unprofessional for her to say this, but it does show there is discord going on if this is true. no wonder the drama goes down hill, from screen time, to ridiculous plot and terrible wigs smh why do they always fix something that isnt broken??

    1. It's probably not unprofessional of her at all, who wouldn't be angry to landed an unprofessional group where everybody ended up finger pointing at each other? Regardless of these things, the 2 main actors still made it top on the weekly rating list. And Jin Han gained some absurd fans at the airport that looked kind of staged, I like the guy and I'm not saying it's him but it looks alot like it is his agency that is trying to do hard promotions.

    3. I think they're just ZLY crazy fans. JH is only going hot now because ZLY is in OGT.

      We seen this with so many other actors when it comes to ZLY and YM, and those actors don't really last that long after the drama is over. It doesn't look as convincing if you compare JH with Lin Gexin and Ethan Ruan, even they would not get over hype out of nowhere so suddenly like this. I actually like JH, but it seems like having tons of fans was ZLY fast ticket to fame and now she's getting him lots of fans to get famous quick too.

  5. I no longer watch CDrama from the start. I hate to be disappointed by the dramas behind the scenes. I will wait till I read the reviews and deicide if it is worth watching, this is now no longer on my list.

  6. I don't know what's the true story but it is true that CX had way more scenes than the main leads. I swear I saw her so much throughout the first 10 episodes I watched (so far). I was so close to dropping it because of the lack of scenes between the main leads. Whatever the case is, this is getting really messy. I watched the show because I liked the novel. It sucks that the drama deviated a lot from the original, but I enjoyed it to an extent regardless of the disappointment. I have always been fond of ZLY but I didn't watch the drama because of her. Thanks to them casting Jin Han as the main lead, I've come to really like him as an actor and person. It sucks that many people are ruining the drama and dragging the actors into the fire. All the best to them all.

  7. The drama was interesting at the beginning and I enjoyed watching the 2 leads. But the Grace character was getting a lot of scenes than I expected and it got boring. At times I wondered if I got it wrong and that Grace is the lead instead of our OTP that I had to look up on the synopsis of the drama. I dropped the drama after drama starts showing a budding relationship between Grace and the rival. Somehow the main lead character suddenly becomes stupid along the way and has to rope in Grace''s help every time there was a trade sabotage. I wish they show case more of the OTP awesome working chemistry. They complement each other well.

  8. If CX does not think that she took up a lot of screen time then she should watch the drama again. I'm not a big fan of the lead although I do like them to an extent. I can agree that there was a lack of screen time between the main leads and too much scenes of Grace and that Ning Wei Kai, whatever his name is. If I am not the only one who noticed this but all the viewers have the same thought then it is true. I know she worked hard behind the scene. Everyone worked hard, but if it's true that she used her power and network to get more scenes then that's just really sad and terrible of her to do so. It's a shame that the production used big names to garner the general public's attention only to do them dirty like always, unfortunately. It's like "Ashes of Love" all over again. They should stop being greedy and wanting more by adding 20+ episodes to a drama that does not need that many episodes to begin with just because the drama is doing really well. That doesn't help at all. That just brings problem especially when the drama starts to drag and have too many unnecessary scenes. Sigh. I guess they will never learn.

    1. But don't forget this is another PA where the fillers are totally bs.
      It should be questioned why would ZLY falls into this type of thing over and over? Is it always the directors fault? Or is it because she's not good in health and does not want to film too many episodes, while the director is desperate to make 60 episodes, she couldn't do them so they landed with such decisions?

  9. She seems to yave an attitude problem. Stating the facts, yet she blasted and dragged the while crew in. This wouldn't happen if get along with everyone. Looks like the drama is over, im only watch it for the novel, but the drama is below expectations.
