The Oath of Love Announces Cast Starring Yang Zi and Xiao Zhan

yang zi xiao zhan the oath of love
This summer has given rise to hit dramas like The Untamed and Go Go Squid. The Untamed may have just aired its finale but lead actor Xiao Zhan has already signed on for his next drama The Oath of Love 余生, 请多指教. It's a welcome reprieve for the actor who's said on many occasions that he's done too many costume dramas and wants a go at a modern drama. This time, he will be paired with Go Go Squid star Yang Zi.

I know many number of fans are probably still hung up on Yang Zi and Li Xian as a couple. It's no different from wishing that Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo could do another drama together. As someone who hasn't seen Go Go Squid, I'm admittedly more about wanting an Ashes of Love reunion between Yang Zi and Deng Lun.

the oath of love
Yet we have Yang Zi and Xiao Zhan heading up a drama together and I'm all for it! I have to say that whoever's in charge of really knows what they're doing because I'm smelling an instant hit.

Adapted from the novel of the same name, the story fits right in with the trend of sweet romances like Put Your Head On My Shoulder and Le Coup De Foudre. Lin Zhixiao is a cello player and Gu Wei is a doctor. In the summer of 2009 as she watched her father being taken to surgery, she had no idea that she'd fall in love at first sight with his doctor. 

It also stars Zhai Zilu, Ma Yujie, Gao Qing, Li Yunrui, Yang Xiaoran, Du Shuangyu, Wang Chengyang, Zhang Yuqi and Zhao Shiyi

  1. I'm bit disappointed that prod team went with Yangzi when there's a lot of younger and prettier actresses that can take the role of 21 years old college girl. Wasn't Chen Yuqi and Song Zuer were rumoured for this drama long time ago? Either of them would suit the role more visually since the gap between the leads are supposed to be about 10 years. Yang Zi looks same age with Xiao Zhan if not older than him. Xiao Zhan looks really young for his age but he's perfect for this role because he gives off a warm guy vibe. Chen Yuqi would have been so perfect with Xiao Zhan visually.

    1. Agreed, Yangzi is into too many same kind of role. Imaging she needs act like 21 when she is over 35? Sigh......

    2. Yang Zi is just perfect for d role. Popularity n acting skills matter d most not d child like face. The mentioned actresses of u are not dat popular or in d top list, so it would have been really hard for d makers to make d drama hit. Thank God they did d right choice!!!!

    3. YangZi will be perfect, she can pull any role given to her and to those haters that always says she’s not pretty...you just look at yourself cause you’re all a joke...so stop with your nonsense comments, if you don’t have anything good to say, keep it to yourself🤐

    4. Agree with you but YZ is the most popular now...
      But wonder if the audience will get sick of her always portraying the same roles.

      Delete
    5. Yang Zi is not over 35. She is currently 26. But yes, I agree with her tackling the same innocent, good girl next door image. It doesn't feel like she's challenging herself.

  2. So is this a webdrama then? Still find it weird that yang zi would take a webdrama project...

    1. Rumor has it that she took it to pursue Xiao Zhan. Kinda like how Lu Han picked Sweet Combat to woo Guan Xiaotong.
      Time will tell whether she succeeds.

      Delete
    2. 2a: saying it like that makes her seem bad. Pls dont spread it around.

      Anyways, it's probably because both Song Zuer and Chen Yuqi arent available even though them and Xiao Zhan were the first choices. The three were rumored since October last year. If I remember right they planned to start shooting on March, but Xiao Zhan hasnt finished filming another drama. The temporary contract with Zuer and Yuqi probably fell through, they accepted other projects, and Yang Zi snatched it up because of the potential hit drama with the currently hot actor. Yang Zi herself did admit she now chose projects looking at the partner and the studio producing(?) first as the deciding factors, because if the drama wont be able to air then what?

      Webdrama or not, she probably just saw a good opportunity with this project. Something that's not cutesy romance. The director also is known to be good directing this kind of story.

    3. 2a: Ah now that you mentioned Lu Han and Guan Xiaotong I can definitely see Yangzi doing something similar. XZ is indeed very handsome and popular. I bet alot of female stars are fighting to work with him and Yz just won this round.

    4. Why would she pursue someone who is avg at looks n have just received popularity? She has way more handsome n successful people around her.so just keep your nonsense with you

      Delete
    5. Those handsome n successful people around her apparently always friendzone her. So she gotta keep trying. And if fangirls are allowed to chase their idols, why can't she? It's up to Xiao zhan whether he wants to accept or not.

  3. YZ is only 26. Not anywhere near 35. And there are plenty of actors and actresses who take on roles way younger than their real age.

    1. The problem is she looks older than Xiao Zhan...... It doesn't matter how old is an actress as long as she suits the role. Chen Yuqi for example is similar age with Yangzi but she looks way younger.

  4. Xiao Zhan seems have no luck with female lead. He's so fcking handsome but all his female leads are average looking. But then again he's too handsome for anyone.

    1. I personally think Li Qin visually matching with him, and technically is the female lead for Zhu Xian.
      But yeah let's hope he has better luck in his future projects.
      But yeah maybe he is too handsome so they find less pretty actresses to pair up with him so his younger fans won't be jealous.

  5. I just can't see him as handsome as Deng lun or li Xian. He just have avg looks. Yang Zi is way more popular than him so it's Xiao zhan's luck to work with her!!!

    3. Xiao zhan will eventually surpass yang zi. Her career will not go far with cutesy roles and CP mediaplay.

  6. First fans of Yang Zi just because someone say she doesnt fit the female lead doesnt automatically mean they are her hater. As someone who has read the book, if I also say it, does that make me her hater? Am I not allowed to have opinion based on how the book describes the female lead? (I'm not the one who said YZ looks old in the other comment btw). Please calm yourself.

    Fans of Xiao Zhan, dont say things like he is too handsome for anyone, or such, you're only sparking unnecessary hate on him. Both of their fans are peaceful on weibo, even helping each other fending off real haters, obsessive cpf (and provocators) of both stars.

    Lastly, this cooperation is a win-win situation for both sides. Refrain from saying either is lucky to have the other as partner or even something like one side riding the other's popularity. Tencent chose them both because they are very hot this summer. The one most lucky is Tencent for having the 2 hottest actors heading their project.

  7. They changed the personality and career of female lead. I doubt it will be very faithful to the novel.
    So yeah its basically GSS no.2 with the 10 year age gap + cold guy/cutesy female lead

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, unfortunately. So as a novel reader, I do think Yang Zi doesnt fit the female lead as described in the book. But now they have changed the background of the character so I will wait and see. Male and female lead have 6 years age gap in the book if I remember correctly, so changing the male lead's age for the drama is also a bit of a huh?why? moment for me. So in this aspect Xiao Zhan also doesnt fit the 30+ yo doctor because he looks a bit too young, however if it were like the novel, he actually fits.

      Tl;dr the changes they made for both lead characters are a bit...unnecessary and I'm curious to see what they will transform the plot into with those changes

  8. Wow, people are so unnecessary cruel because they don't get what they want.

    You may not like her but to cruelly bash her is unnecessary. You only display how ugly a person (you) can be. Heck I don't even know who this actor is and dont really care for him one way or another. I won't be bashing him or anyone. It's unnecessary and cruel.

    You don't like her. Ok...doesn't mean she's ugly because you dont like her and dont find her pretty.

    Then a baseless statement of her wanting this role to pursue a guy...wow...you know all about their lives eh? She's an actor, she will pick a role that sounds like a hit and that it will get aired because of the censor.

    Is this role the same? I wouldn't say the same but it sounds similar. Those who read the book would know.

    Majority of people *actor* has played the same or similar roles. How many characteristics is there...

  11. Deng Lun way more handsome than Xiao Zhan he's just average looking compair to Deng pun and his popularity can't compare to yang zi she has been an actress for a long time he just gain popularity because of his new drama and the last thing is yang zi is pretty enough to be female lead in this drama and he is the one who pursue her not her it's his luck that can work with her (It's my own opinion)

    1. You wish, honey. From styling alone, you can obviously see Xiao Zhan in The Untamed is 1000x more handsome than Denglun in Ashes of Love. Deng Lun has weird looking lips because he's a smoker. His monolid eyes can't compare with Xiao Zhan's stunning eyes.

      And stop embarrassing yourself. At the moment, Xiao Zhan is 1000x more popular than Yang Zi. His supertopic ranks third. Rate of engagement of the posts related to him are way higher than GGS ever. The Untamed's popularity >>>>>> GGS

    3. @Anonymous1: Untamed is not more popular than GSS. But Xiao Zhan is definitely more popular than Yang Zi. Thats why Yang Zi wants to work with Xiao Zhan to guarantee another hit next year. he is the selling point of this drama.

    5. who is more popular? its up to the ratings and views. Both GSS and The Untamed did real good. When this drama is over there will be another project for both of them and they will forget about each other just like the previous dramas. Deng Lung wont make another drama with YZ. So stop the gossip and unnecesary drama. Because next yr this will be old news.

      Delete
  12. My opinion, Xiao Zhan is not as handsome as people made it ought to be...I can understand they liked him from his previous drama but his looks is just one of those flowery boy with soft skin. It is a perfect match with Yang Zi, she is not that pretty but good looking enough like Xiao Zhan too.

    I won't believe the stupid rumor that she's trying to pursue him. She is more experienced, and worked with many men way more handsome than Xiao Zhan. At one point she dated co star QJJ but she dated openly. If she's going to date again she would be open.

    I would also praise her for not using PR with all the hot costars. She is so polite, event though she is playful and even somewhat flirty, she does them in a polite manner that doesn't make her comes off inappropriate and touchy. She's cool. She could have drop hints everywhere, pretend to make it look like she's dating all her costars, create puzzle pieces for fans to solve. That would give her tons of buzz each and every time a new drama comes out!!! But she didn't take that route. Because she has such a good attitude and proves herself to be only the "cool friend" of her costars, she can hang around them nicely without looking like she's using them for PR. It's normal that friends talk, chat, hang out. She is so real about that already. That is what admireable about her. But there are jealous people who hate her about this too. If you hate how she get to talk to her hot guy friends, go get your own.

    This girl only relied on her acting even when no good scripts are available and she stuck playing same roles. Fans ship her so hard with Deng Lun (and more) if she deliberately use him for PR she would've gotten far already. She values friendships. It's hard to find an honest worker like this. Why would she work with a guy just because she wants to pursue him? Both of them are recent hits, combining them together the directors will get double hits that's why he chose both of them.

  15. I was hoping Yang Zi would do something different than these idol drama, but hey she got to make the $$ and stay on top while she is hot! It is to bad because she is probably one of the best actress in her age group. Anyways she can choose to do whatever she wants, we can always choose not to watch it. It never hurt to sneak at a couple of episode, who knows it can surprise me like GGS. Yang Zi is well known because she is a child actor, she transition very well as an adult actor. Her Battle of CHangsha and Yangko dance are my fav performance of hers. I had no idea who Xiao Zhan is lol, i doubt she wasn't to pursue him. SO many ridiculous haters make up the most idiotic things! If anything Yang Zi was probably contact to take on the role to help boost some-other so call rising young star. It's a win win. Hi Marcus!

The drama didn't even start filming yet, and there are already accusation. Like seriously, no actor/actress can add extra intimate scene. These kinds of rumors are always spread around between CPs. Why pick on Yang Zi? I always think she is better , she need to get out of these idol dramas.

      Those are such exagerattions saying YZ added scenes on her own. If the director approved it, that means her suggestions are helpful for the directors. So what? Jealous of that?

      Outside of filming, have she forcefully snug on men's arm in public? Travel with men? Pretend to sleep on men's shoulder? Kiss them outside of filming? Buy matching items like the men? So those things will create publicity for her? So, no, she isn't touchy or inappropriate. If she is filming, that's totally her job. As if the actor will not act cozy with any actress in his future projects, looks like he will with YZ that's why his fans are so afraid and jealous of YZ. Wishing to be her.

  22. WOW!

    1. They could have went with a different actress, however, they chose Yang Zi. I don't see anything wrong with her for some of you to make a big deal out of this, other than the fact that you hate her for whatever reasons.

    2. She's not old. She's only 26 and I'm pretty sure Sean is older than her (by a year). Also, have you seen her in Go Go Squid or Ashes of Love? Her acting is pretty damn good. She did a great job as a 19 yr old in Go Go Squid. I'm dying to see them together in this drama.

    3. So what if one of the actors is more popular than the other? They've both been casted to do a job, something they'll both be paid to do. If you're mad about the fact that she's in it, then don't watch the damn thing. It's as simple as that. There's nothing you can do if they already chose her as the lead. It's just a drama. Get over it.

    4. It's totally fine if you have opinions of her, however, if they're just mean, hurtful words and not actual constructive criticism towards her work, then you're just a damn hater. I don't see why some of you hate her so much when she's done nothing to you and doesn't even know who the hell you are. Don't spread rumors around that's false and you know nothing about. Rumors and scandals always happen in the celebrity circle... It's nothing new. So what?

    I could care less if she has a "loose reputation" as you guys said. She seems cool to me and her acting is really good. I just want to watch a good drama with actors who can portray the characters right and tell the story. All this extra shit is unnecessary.

All of her roles are silly,innocent and bubby type of girl. In Ode To Joy, she's the most average compared to the other ladies. Wang Ziwen is much better actress than her. Her role in OTJ and When A Snail Falls in Love is totally different, that's what should be called good actor.

    3. You obviously did not watch The battle of Changsha or Yangko Dance. The actress from OTJ all can act. Usually Day Light Entertainment hire actresses that can act. Yang Zi is better than these idol dramas, i hope she turns back to her roots. These crazy fan girls be hating on her.

I don't think Yang Zi and Xiao Zhan make a cute couple. Very disappointing indeed. I agreed with many, she's look older then Xiao Zhan.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Now I just feel so bad for girls who did not do plastic surgery so they don't look pretty enough and people be callin them ugly. I now support YZ to go and get plastic surgery! There's too much hate. Since she did none, they call her "plastic and ugly." So why not go get it? At least they will call her "plastic but pretty." Like everyone else? The most popular idol is the prettiest and how they maintain their beauty is plastic surgery. YZ, learn from them, just do the same.


    YZ is currently replacing old idols and becoming one of the top idols so she's getting hates. Fans of the previous big idols see YZ as the new threat. But I usually think international fans are not this cruel, now they are getting heavly influence overseas. This problem is not about Sean only, every time anything about YZ came up there is hate bcause people hate that she is ugly.

    2. Yang Zi is pretty but not all of the times. Her teeth isn't the best so during some angles she can look unflattering. Her eyes are already bigger than big, but it's still not humongous. While huge eyes is the bigger trend now. If girls don't have huge eyes, the shape should be attractive (i.e. ZDY squinty eyes but cute), but YZ eyes are very very ordinary. Her most outstanding feature got to be her tiny mouth but the flaw is also her teeth and sometimes her lips appear thicker at some angles. She's not actually ugly but she has disadvantages at certain angles and will not look pretty 100% of the time.

      The "unflattering" things on YZ face are what I like because of "naturalness." But since people hate it so much maybe she should go copy those BIG actresses who made their face pretty at each and every single little angle.

    3. She's not ugly but also not natural like what you claimed. Her surgery is well known in China lol

      Delete
  25. Just because lots of haters in China say she is plastic does not mean she is. If you are not aware, fans have power to turn truth into false as they wish, vice versa. If they like somebody who is plastic, they can even deny her plasticy all the time so that they can turn her into a false natural. They can kick out anybody they don't like out of acting, like Guilnezha and maybe Dilreba she's laying low these days. If they like somebody, whether her projects are good or bad they will make it work.

    Yang Zi face is still the same like when she was a kid, unless she did plastic since childhood is what your saying.

  26. Her elastic face looking like its going to burst everytime she smiles is enough evidence. Haters don't even need to do anything. Fyi plastic surgery is not just about going under the knife. Her face looks like its surviving on a million injections.

  29. I actually think Asia is too small for yangzi- she doesn’t fit the mold of Chinese celebrities— she interesting, intelligent and unique. She’s HERSELF and I can see with Netflix picking up AOL and word of mouth that she has broad international appeal. She has the talent and charisma to reach a more global audience who doesn’t simply judge you on looks or being an “idol.”

    Yangzi’s selling point is her charm. For an actor—- that is the main thing you can’t buy or fake—- charisma.

    She has a magnetic ability to draw an audience in and the subtleties in her acting allows her to create fully developed characters. I mean, the transformation of jinmi from clueless (with great comedic timing) to depth of despair is a perfect arc! The acting was exceptional.

    FYI- I’m not a drama fan- I clicked AOL on Netflix by mistake and after the first episode I got hooked. I don’t even watch romance movies!!!

    I mean, I don’t speak the language at all and while everyone fell in love with the guy- I fell in love with the girl.
    I started googling everything about her and her body of work is impressive! To Yang Zi— much love from Texas! Keep doing YOU! ��

    1. The actress is irrelevant anyway all the hype is on Xiao Zhan alone. Let's just support him!

  32. By any chance if Xiao Zhan or his Manager/Agency ever read this message, it will be great. Dedicated for you.

    If all the above accusations are from your fans, please advise them to behave themselves.

    If all the above accusations are from paid keyboard warriors, please consider to change to another team.

    By condemning others don’t make you good at all. We will not go into the discussion how handsome or how ugly the actor or actress is because “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.

    But please learn how to read Forbes Top 100 Chinese Celebrities 2019 other than just the daily and weekly VLinkage and PowerStar ranking. After that, learn how to read Asia Top Celebrities and International Celebrities.

    There’s a long way for Xiao Zhan to catch up with Yang Zi even just in Weibo. Not to mention the years of experiences in entertainment industry and awards she has achieved in all these years compare to Xiao Zhan. By accusing “Yang Zi accepted the drama due to pursuing Xiao Zhan”. What an ugly statement that was. Xiao Zhan is so far behind so many male celebrities’ achievement with his age now.

    Even if you want to disregard, Yang Zi and Deng Lun as part of the Top 100, you still have to surpass another 98 seniors in order to make yourself to Top 1. ( Opppsss, forgotten, TF Boys are much more younger than Xiao Zhan and Cai XuKun is only 21 years old but have made it to Forbes )

    At the end of the day, no one will remember who the fans are but will only remember how disrespectful Xiao Zhan’s fans to the rest of the seniors. And will eventually fall back to Xiao Zhan as an arrogant person with such embarrassing accusation to others.

  33. True. Ignoring others achievement or condemning other actors/actress do not make you great in anyway or anywhere especially they are your seniors.

  34. Jesus the amount of hate for the lead actress horrible fans. xiao zhans fan need to get off from their high horses lmao so much arrogance when only one drama of him got popular.LOL i didn't even knew him before "the untamed" and yangzi she is a popular actress in china and had been in industry for more than a decade.You guys talking about popularity hahahaha he is not even 1% as popular as TF boys or kris wu who are also more good looking than xiao zhan. Recently forbes released 100 celeb ranking in china based on influence,reputation,work and commercial value and yangzi is at 24th rank(there are only 7 actresses in top 25) where is your xiao zhan he is not even in top 100.This is the real deal not your rigged online voting.He has long way to reach yangzi level well let him first reach wang yibo level as i see him in the list. At the end of day fans represent their artist and way xiao zhan fans are hope he wont get labeled as a horrible person,

    p.s just saw his crazy fans chasing him my goodness they don't even respect their own idol i literally fear for yangzi hope she doesnt encounter these lunatics

  35. Yang Zi jiayou!I can just laugh at the claims of his crazy fans that he is more popular and beautiful I guess they just got into C entertainment world 2 days ago have they ever heard the name of TF boys,Kris Wu,luhan,lay and many more idols? Xiao zhan is way too behind them in both the aspect you can't even do comparison.Wang junkai is immensely popular yet the way he adores and respect yang zi is just admirable and even his fans too love the bond between them that's why they got together in different varieties shows.So the fans of Xiao zhan should sit calm and respect his costars and nobody is asking you to like/love yangzi but please be respectful even though she is younger than him by 1 year she has way more influence and experience than him.

  36. Earlier I was nuetral about him but after seeing how his fans are treating yangzi i wish Xiao zhan wasn't the male lead moreover he is way too girlish with flowery boy image and worse he is an idol with wild insane fans phew! Yz please choose wisely next time you can do so much better specially after working with talented actors in past this is just :(

    1. I feel like most of the hype for Yang Zi's dramas ends up going to her male leads. She is no Zhao Liying or Yang Mi who can carry a female-centric drama to success. This looks like it will be another drama that will boost Xiao Zhan's career while Yang Zi remains a "nanny" who helps boost her male lead's popularity but remains stagnant in her acting range.

    2. meanwhile for xz he's the main lead in all his upcoming projects... duoluo continent and jade dynasty. even on weibo people are talking about his role as a doctor. don't see any discussion about yz's role.

    3. The ZLY fans need to stop being jealous other actresses going to surpass her! All ZLY fans do is pretend to ship her with her costars like Lin Gexin, Li Yifeng, and Wallace Huo when they have absolutely no chemistry together at all. The men was not even romantic with her in the dramas and fans pretend to make it like they are the best pairings ever existed.
      Plus, all the dramas all failed in good storyline and good acting, and fans pretend to act like they are all the best dramas in the world. They need to stop. Everytime another actress is becoming successful like Yang Zi and SHen Yue, ZLY fans try to step on other actresses. Only ZLY use the media to praise herself working hard. They keep trying to drag down other actresses saying they use hype and media when they did none. Every other actresses worked their ass off, much harder, and never sell the pitiful act like the idol ZLY so stop trying to bully others because they're replacing her.

      Delete
    4. Nobody is replacing ZLY. She is the top television actress of her age group.
      ZLY has one hot drama every year starting from 2013, two nominations from Magnolia Award and one Best Actress award from Golden Eagle Award.
      Her drama quality isn't the best but still managed to get high ratings and views thanks to her popularity and chemistry with her male leads. So what if fans think they are the best pairing? Don't act like its the fans' sentiment
      because viewership ratings speak otherwise.
      Even her "flop" dramas do better than other's hit dramas.

      Yang Zi still has awhile more to catch up to her, and Shen Yue is not anywhere near. Why do we need to be jealous when our fave has both ratings and award? Those using ZLY's name are obviously not her fans, so don't even try to use this as an opportunity to bash her.

      Also, ALL celebrities try to sell some type of image. At least ZLY is selling the hardworking image instead of useless things like beauty and fashion.

      I know you are the resident ZLY hater on this website. *roll eyes*

      Delete
    5. You are the resident of ZLY fan here no wonder she is the only person who can use her male chemistry (media play that she is dating them) to boost up her horrible dramas. While people like YZ can have good dramas but did not use male chemistry to boost up her career and still get yelled at that she used media play. Yes, ZLY kissed He Jiong on the lips and fall asleep on his shoulder when they were in the car and she used him for popularity, it's nothing. YZ was only a friend playing tag with the men and it's such a huge sin. Things ZLY can do, her fans here protect her. But others, not the same. Such as Yang Mi, she'd always been eating healthy and skinny and people are calling her anorexia and unhealthily skinny and saying she should stop acting because of her kid. ZLY also have a kid and lose so much weight right after giving birth and it is nothing, she should come back and act ASAP and lose as many weight as she wants. So much biasness.

      Delete
    6. Hah you are the pathetic bitch who accused all the admins of being a ZLY fan, and love to post ZLY content under non-related posts? Suck it up that ZLY gets defended and not your faves. If you work as hard as ZLY fans do to defend your bias instead of posting useless shit like this, maybe they will get shielded and not receive so much hate.

      You do know that YZ and YM are also known for being "flirts" in China right, according to C-netz? Go browse Chinese forums and you'll realise they are all accused of the same things so don't act like ZLY is the only one that do these stuff.

  38. And the one who replied saying he is the lead actor in coming projects so why are you telling me? Should I start dancing?

    P.s If you didn't she that doesn't mean her role is getting discussed.These kind of obsessive and hard headed fans are the reason why some male leads have bad reputation.

    1. Stan her then since you are already spending lots of the time defending her. Nobody is advertising just pointing out what you are blind to see. While your potential bias is busy relying on mediaplaying CPs for her projects, her co-star is leading dramas with his own ability and popularity. And its not like YZ has such a prestige reputation or she wouldn't be getting so much hate lol.

    2. I am blind okay thanks�� as per you she doesn't even have a reputation okay so deserves all the hate WOW this statement Lord where is the humanity.

  40. The amount of hate in this comment section is completely unnecessary. If you don't like Yang Zi or don't find her fitting for the role, well, ya'll can't really do anything about it. People have different opinions. the people that chose her obviously saw the potential she has in her acting and also her ability to bring in viewers. She's been on two successful dramas so idk why people find it so hard to believe that she got this role. And LMAO at the comments saying she's flirtatious and using this to pursue XZ. Her prior co-stars have nothing, but good things to say about her. She becomes really good friends with her MLs or were already good friends. She has fun with them, and makes her co-stars feel comfortable on the set.

    I have full faith in Yang Zi. When she was casted for GGS, she received a ton of negative comments as well mostly stating that she doesn't fit the role of Tong Nian and based on my opinion, she really did not fit the author's description of TN. Buuuuuuut she was able to create her own TN and was able to convince the viewers that she was meant for that role. Her chemistry with LX was off the charts and I think they were able to pull that off because of how playful they are on set. He mentioned this quite a few times &&&& as for the unscripted kiss, LX was the first one to kiss YZ without notifying her and both unscripted kisses were planned by the director. In my opinion Yang Zi is a great actress and whether you agree or not, there is no debate that she is one of the top in China. She not only has her acting to back her uo but also prior projects and popularity.

  41. I always find it funny when an actress gets called out for playing a cutesy character when the script literally tells them to act that way and this type of character is obviously popular in China, so I don't know what you guys are expecting. They're trying to please the audience that they're targeting not individuals looking for something new.

    If you don't like the drama, don't watch. If you don't like the FL, no one is forcing you to watch. XZ literally just got his big break, so stop acting like YZ, a veteran actress, is using this role to take advantage of him. And what's with all tbe accusations? No one knows why the other choices for the FL did not get the role. It could simply be tje fact that it didn't work for their schedule. You guys are acting like YZ started acting yesterday. She's been in the industry since she was a kid. She's not stupid enough to choose a drama to pursue some guy. She saw the potential of the script, her co actors and the team/staff that she'll be working with. I don't know what actor were reject an offer to work on essentially a sure hit. Sure I would love to see her in a completely different role, but I'm just a fan and I can do nothing but hope for her success and the success of the drama. Yang Zi, fighting!

  44. Agree with the above comments about karry Wang even though he is just 19 yr old with lots of talent and huge popularity is so humble towards his seniors in work space. His interaction with yangzi is well loved by fans thanks to his gentleman attitude toward her and in the same way yangzi caring attitude toward him. Yangzi fighting! Wish you all the veryvery keep rising and shining

  45. Yes waiting for this! YZ and XZ! <3

  46. Yang Zi dubbed as one of the four most bankable actresses post the 90s and known as China's national daughter does not need to rely on CPs to get popular. She has gone through the depths of hell in this industry and does not deserve the unnecessary hate she gets based on groundless rumours. Yes, she's touchy, but those times are limited to times on the filming set. In rL, couples are touchy. Dramas try to depict rL as much as possible with limitations of course, so do you expect couples on the screen to be one foot away from each other? Is that realistic? She's also more boyish than other female actresses, so her MLs are able to be more comfortable with her and are able to have fun with her like they would a really close friend. Girls with mostly guy friends always get a bad rep of being flirty when in reality theyre just one of the guys. And YZ literally gets an abundant amount of hate because of CPs. Breathing the same air with a guy gets her hate. She has stated that her tandems are fake and onscreen only. Her team even refuses to associate with CPs. And lmao, have you seen her kiss scenes in her dramas? They're literally just pecks. She barely reacts. It's honestly disappointing. And all those rumours that she snatched away this drama from another actress, is there solid evidence? Could it simply not have worked with the other actress because of the schedule or could it have been the production team that decided YZ was better suited for the role? No one knows the truth. All I know is that Yang Zi has been in industry for so long that she has gone through all the ups and downs of the entertainment business. She has been replaced more than once in other dramas including a time when she was already on set ready to be filmed. Everything she has now is well deserved and whether people like her or not, she will continue to be successful.

  47. Some XZ fans are honestly scary from the mean comments online to the fans that chase him to the point that he actually has to run to escape their wrath. I don't want to generalize though because many of his fans actually condemn this behavior and support his new drama with YZ. I really hope the drama meets everyone's expectation and becomes another hit drama like the Untamed and GGS.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yang Zi is not the most beautiful actress around but I think she has a simple girl-next-door beauty. Whether she got plastic surgery or not, it doesn't matter because it doesn't affect her ability to emote. I'm not her fan but I find it easy to watch and follow her dramas. Hopefully she'll get the chance to star in more credible works. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy her "idol" dramas because its my fave genre.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Yang Zi might not have problem. How she handles her r'ship with MLs is all her personal preference and of course, how the MLs would like to respond is also their choice. That's why so many MLs have publicly announced it that she's just another bro to them.

    So, be XZ's fans or whichever MLs' fans, Stay cool. It is just another drama.

    Yes, kind of agreed that some of YZ's fans are scary too. They said they are neutral but from some comments, be able to see they just blindly like YZ. True, She has gained her further recognition and popularity in AOL and GGS but that doesn't mean she's just good in everything. They just adore her like goddess which flawless and condemning others actress. They accused other actress get no. 1 b'coz the boss bought the award , bought the ranking . But how good is YZ when she needs to send text to all her friends and get them to support her.

    Has she ever think that her friends are also the other actress's friend ?

    Now her latest drama My Mowgli Boy is released. I am curious how her fans will react. Such an annoying lady after few episodes. Her acting is so fake and she is unable to carry it. Will they say she is adorable ? Of course they will since they blindly support her.

    I love Xiao Zhan, he is my fave actor (and denglun :D) and this upcoming drama is a big move for him. especially that the lead actress is YangZi who is very love by china. I watched YangZi in Ashes of Love, and she did a damn great job as Jinmi. She and Xiao Zhan will make this drama a hit, billions will watch this, so you bitter human can suffer!

  53. The story is kinda similar to Go Go Squid! There's a 10 year age gap between the two leads and the male lead character is described as "having a warm heart behind a cold exterior". Only difference is maybe it's more serious because cancer is involved. I think I'll pass on this drama. Should have hired a different actress for this. Yang Zi needs to do something different; she isn't challenging herself.
