Is Kris Wu No Longer Starring in The Golden Hairpin with Yang Zi?

kris wu
Here I am still trying to picture Kris Wu as a prince in what would be his drama debut, but rumors that his pairing with Yang Zi is off the table keep coming.

Please take everything here with a grain of salt since things heard through the internet grapevine aren't exactly the most reliable. However, the latest buzz surrounding The Golden Hairpin 青簪行 is that filming has started, but with a casting change. According to rumors, Yang Zi is staying on as the leading lady while the production team has decided to replace Kris Wu after much deliberation. Names allegedly considered include Hu Ge, Lin Gengxin, and Song Weilong, none of which panned out. But maybe the most popular among the theories is Li Xian because he was Yang Zi's love team in Go Go Squid! He also fit the criteria of the rumored leading man whose: 1. name is two characters 2. born between 1985-1992 and 3. has a free schedule. Li Xian fans have simply laughed off the rumors as ridiculous since the actor's schedule is far from free. Li Xian is in fact busy with his new movie Schemes in Antiques.

I honestly don't know how to feel about this. While I was worried about how fans would receive Kris Wu and Yang Zi's pairing, a small part of me was looking forward to seeing how good they're going to look together.

  1. Wow. Hu Ge would have been epic. Although LGX might be a better choice to match the age difference of the characters. While I loved GGS, LX's acting wasn't anything great... We shall see. Last I checked, Kris's weibo post for this drama is still there.

  7. Here is what it said on Jaynestars:

    "On November 29, a netizen revealed that the male lead of Chinese drama A Story of Hairpin has been changed from Kris Wu (吳亦凡) to 28-year-old actor Li Xian (李现). The lead actress remains as Andy Yang (also known as Yang Zi 楊紫), who plays Huang Zixia, a famous female detective during the Tang dynasty. In the netizen’s revelatory post, filming for the drama has already started and both leads Li Xian and Andy Yang have been confirmed."

    1. take note that it said a netizen. it's not a reliable source. jaynestars have reported based on rumors too just like before

  8. Jaynstar is not that reliable! They usually just translate articles. If this is true i do wish it was LGX or Deng Lun! I am okay with Li Xian too.

  9. I heard Li Xian may be the likely choice....

  10. Why are you reporting rumors that are not confirmed yet?? Write an article once it's confirmed. People who spread unreliable rumors are so annoying. If you heard a rumor, keep to yourself. Be a responsible writer/journalist. This is why there are so many idiots out there who easily believe on all rumors eventhough most of them are fake and never proven to be true.

    1. Dramapanda writers have lost it. This site is becoming like the basic gossip site who translate news and rubbish rumors from unreliable weibo accounts. They don't even bother to check the credibility of the source and just proceed to write a juicy article for sake of clouts. The bar to become writer on dramapanda is so low.

  11. The filming has already started and Li Xian is currently busy with filming his movie. It's IMPOSSIBLE for him to be in the drama. Kris Wu would most likely be still the male lead. Gossip accounts spread all this rumors to create bad publicity for the drama. If you're an intellectual, stop paying attention to all these rubbish rumors.

  12. Lmaooo the source linked you to Kris' weibo. Can't even put the exact source. This just prove that they wrote article based off untrustworthy sources.

    "According to rumors.." People really report stuff based on rumors nowadays and act like it's trustworthy news. Wild.

    Putting disclaimers is so useless when people believe things they want to. No one is taking rumor with a grain of salt. The world we are living is rumors now become the main source of news.

  13. Those that are not happy to read what this site has to offer can just go elsewhere. Or even better setup their own site.
    This site should really remove the "Anonymous" comments, many are just keyboard cowards that are here to create a anti social environment.
    Even Baidu has a article on this possible cast change...it is a popular topic, Drama Panda has all her rights to post whAt she finds suitable.
    Dont like it, Just get lost. No one is forcing you here with a knife on your throat.

    1. Thank you! I so agree. Such rude, ungrateful posters here. If they don't like it then they can go elsewhere. Drama Panda can post anything she pleases on her own site.

    2. @ Hohliu & Sunny:

      I agree with you also. Those people can go to other websites and read the news - we won't miss you here. Thank you!

      You guys are mad because you're the exact examples of those idiots who love gossiping stuff from rumors.

    4. @Sunny & 13.b:

      13.c is a example of this site's troll and parasites.

    5. 13.c, apparently that Hoeliu's butthurt because every time any1 disagrees with her she acts up. She is the number 1 troll herself, she lives for the sake of participating in gossips. Such a hypocrite, when it comes to innocent celebrities she hates, she also chews on them with bad comments too. She only puts on an act like a heroine protecting others, when her faves get bad comments or some1 aint agreeing with her.

    6. @13.e: LOL, what a liar....whatever...sprout all you like.

  14. What's so hard about picturing Kris as a prince when he had a whole MV where he wore traditional garb with long hair styling? Are you living under the rock?

    Also you know they're not exactly reliable rumors, then why must you still spread it. To gossip for fun? Are you that jobless? So many other legit news can be written into article. Guess you'll do anything just to get traffics to your blog huh. Shame on you. Stop writing article about Kris from now on bitch.

  15. Nah I highly doubt it's real since the filming has taken place few days ago. It doesn't make sense that Kris Wu suddenly backed out at the last minute when he and Yang Zi greeted each others' characters on Weibo. If he backed out, there should be an advanced announcement since this is supposedly his very first drama. Plus the other rumoured names don't seem plausible. Hu Ge is busy with his movie road shows and promotion, don't think he'll return to dramaland for now. Song Weilong is currently filming a drama with Tan Songyun and Zhang Xincheng. Li Xian is filming a movie. Li Gengxin is the only plausible name if there's changes in cast but he seemed like he's on break from his latest Weibo post.

    Previously, there was a rumor about Zhao Liying backing out from Legend of Fei, rumor about Wang Yibo's attitude during filming, rumor about Yang Zi arguing with her costars over billing issue etc, all these rumors are created by opponents or black marketing accounts to make them look bad. Trending stars always have to deal with all sort of rumors. If you're smart enough, you won't easily believe all these rumors.

  16. I am puzzled to why a change of cast is a bad rumours? Cast change all the time in many movies/drama till it is cast in stone. This drama have not confirmed the full cast with Press released as such. So any changes is possible. For Kris's fans, why are you guys offended by this? He is so popular, he may be busy with other projects. It is just a drama, no one is putting anyone down.
    I dont not understand the hate comments at all. Sound very childish.
    We will know when the drama starts filming...but even before it starts the air for this drama is already so negative. Fan wars everywhere. No wonder the investors are concern.

      Hu Ge is a great actor but she's not THAT far out of his league when his best friend Wallace Huo starred in a highly rated and watched drama, Battle of Changsha...opposite.... YANG ZI.

    2. Somebody sounds extremely jealous. Of course Hu Ge rejected doing dramas with some idol actresses because he's focusing on serious things. If he chose to work with Yang Zi it's going to look unfair to some people because they jealous. But she has good attitude so anybody would like to work with her.

    3. lmao dude Hu Ge's a good actor who picks good projects but he's not that much better than Yang Zi. He's worked with plenty of idol actresses that are worse than Yang Zi, get off your high horse.
