IS IT JUST ME OR IS DARREN CHEN MADE FOR LONG HAIR??? 

Darren Chen who rose to fame after taking up the role of Hua Ze Lei in the 2018 drama reboot of Meteor Garden has just started filming for his first xianxia drama, Yu Zhao Ling 玉昭令 alongside actress Zhang Yishang. The young actor seems to be getting the hang of donning traditional robes as he also finished filming for The Sleuth of Ming Dynasty earlier this year, that's helmed by none other than THE Jackie Chan. If that doesn't boost your CV for future job applications, I don't know what will.

Adapted from the novel Kaifeng Zhi Guai 开封志怪 by Wei Yu 尾鱼, Yu Zhao Ling is one of those love stories that I'd instantly click on as our beautiful heroine is an immortal who falls in love with a human while on her quest to vanquishing the demons in the mortal world. But of course their love story doesn't start off all lovey-dovey as they'll be fighting like cats and dogs. Untypical.

Wai-Man Cheng who co-directed the hit series The Untamed signs on as the director, and I can only hope it will also receive the same success as his former show did.

Set in the world of Kaifeng in that familiar place where Justice Bao became a symbol that stood for justice, Darren Chen seems to be moulded after Zhan Zhao whom we all know as the handsome guard with incredible fighting skills.

  1. Hopefully he has improved his acting. Darren is the most stiff actor from Meteor Garden after Shen Yue. Shen Yue had pretty good drama resources but all of them did very bad in China, if anything her name now become more associated with terrible acting.

    1. Good rating is not associated with good acting vice versa. You are very stupid to think that way no wonder why your idol has stupidly high ratings while her dramas are some of the worst. Ratings are only associated with fans.

    2. ??? Ain't nobody saying good ratings associated with good acting. Never mind Shen Yue's flopped dramas since a lot of other actors have few flops every now and then, but the thing with Shen Yue is she's not even good at acting. That's why cnetz always criticised her acting. She doesn't have anything to offer. No beauty. No talent. If she has at least one of the two, she won't get so much flak from cnetz. See Yang Zi and Bai Lu, they don't fit the beauty standard China has but they have very good acting skill, that's why they're so likeable among cnetz.

    3. the she yue hater is back again. I feel bad for Shen Yue because the industry scouted her and people act like she wanted to be an actress. Also she's a naturally pretty girl which is why to many people hate on her.

    4. No, you're wrong. There were so many celebs with natural beauty in China but they dont get as much hate as her. cnetz hate her because her acting is so mediocre. Her fans just dont want to acknowledge it because they are so blind and refuse to see the truth that their idol is just talentless. Ju Jingyi , Bai Lu, Zhou Ye, Xing Fei also have much better acting than hers. They're prettier too.

    5. Can't I just take Bai Lu away? She isn't making yet. No need to bring her to put others down

    6. Bai Lu isn't the beauty type but I agree she is natural, also she is getting really good projects don't know what the hell you saying.

      Ju Jingyi is totally 10Xs more plastic than everyone else. Really funny that you named her. And she also gets good projects as well.

      Zhou Ye and Xing Fei look good but very new, too bad they were not scouted, so what if directors chose Shen Yue instead? If you think all those names you listed are pretty, LOL! Shen Yue isn't ugly to you, you are only jealous and insecure when seeing her that's why you hate her so much. She is a threat we know that.

  2. Jackie Chan can't even save his CV if he doesn't boost his acting skill.

    1. That's F'ked up to say he needs acting skills what a dumb a**.
      He's old and cannot do anymore stunts so he can't continue what he was doing his whole lifa. He doesn't sound supportive of human rights and his family is a mess so we don't like him as a person but denying the truth about his skills is just dumb.

    2. Uh another dumbass here. OP was referring to Darren Chen. Did you even read the article -.- The writer was saying Darren Chen working with Jackie Chan can boost his CV when boy can't act for life. We shall see if his acting improve while working Jackie.

  4. Why are people bringing up some irrelevant shrek when this is an article about Darren's drama?! Get out and bring your fanwar elsewhere.

    To Darren's haters and trolls, I just want to tell you once his drama out, be prepared to get surprised and be ready with the compliments. Y'all going to witness how his acting will improve by leaps and bounds with the guide from the acting legend, Jackie Chan and totally end all your faves' career. Thanks for caring about him.
