Sword Dynasty Star Li Yitong Responds to a Rude Comment About Her Lack of Popularity

sword dynasty li yitong
They say that it's better to promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate but i guess not everyone gets that. The last quarter of the year seems to be Li Yitong's moment as three of her dramas - Blossom in Heart with Deng Lun, Royal Nirvana with Luo Jin and Sword Dynasty with Li Xian - have aired. 

A netizen left an insulting remark on Li Yitong's Weibo page saying that she feels sorry for Li Xian because he is acting alongside an actress who just can't get popular. I guess at first glance, you'd think that the person is a fan of the actor but Li Xian's supporters were quick to comment that a person who says such words can't be a true Li Xian fan.

Li Yitong herself responded to the basher: "No worries, I know my nephew and his fans will never shun his little auntie", referencing to her role as Li Xian's "aunt" in Sword Dynasty. She also added, "I'm cold," which is another reference to her character.  

Clearly, C-ent does not have a shortage when it comes to celebrities which means there's a lot of competition but truth be told, Li Yitong isn't doing bad herself. Although hers is not as big as other actresses, she's got a solid fanbase, has starred in various dramas (some of which haven't seen the light of day yet) and has been paired with well-known actors so I think that mean comment was really uncalled for. With her acting skills, that person might even eat her words when Li Yitong finally gets her well-deserved recognition.

  2. She can act. Way better than some highly promoted actresses right now. She has no backing, so she needs that hit role.

    1. With all the quality projects and costars, who are either have acting or popularity she has been getting it’s hard to say she has no Good backing.
      Not to mention LYT never once played supporting role and got 1st billing or the center role right with her very first drama. How many actresses out there have this kind of luck when her her face isn't exceptionally beautiful like LYF? Many popular actresses today have played supporting roles for years before they get a leading role.

      But she doesn't go with the media-play or water army to get fire. And she has acting skill too. All she lacks is some luck

    2. 2.a
      Before she played lead, she was found by Yu Zheng and played as Zhao Liying's stunt or double. I guess it's maybe because of the resemblance. Even today people still say she look like her. He once said "Li Yitong will surpassed Zhao Liying".

      It's common already that lead actors or actresses play lead roles right away if they are ready. If you play supporting roles, then the support roles still have to be really good that they made you stand out that's why you get promote to lead roles. Being a fillers over and over but they don't even showcase your ability, when you move to a lead role it is still just going to feel like, it's your first time acting.
      That's why Yu Zheng give opportunities to new people to play lead as long as they have the thirst, the experience don't even matter honestly. If you watch his dramas whenever he think somebody is going to match something (or maybe he just likes the person more) he will just cast without caring about anything.

  3. I think she's doing okay. She has 9 million followers which is pretty good. In comparison, Chen Yuqi from the massively popular Ashes of Love has 8 million followers. With more works, she'll be rising more, slowly but surely. She may be 29 already but she looks very youthful so no prob.

  4. 29 whaat?? She looks much younger than Chen Yuqi, Yang Zi and Dilireba who were born in 1992. Personally think her acting is better too.

  5. She's working hard, even now she is still filming and in demand regardless of her dramas airing or not. Never look down on people who are doing their job.

  6. Li Yi Tong isn't too famous for her works because I feel like the majority of people feel like her looks are too normal and not pretty enough, but looks isn't everything. I've watched a couple of her dramas before and to be honest her acting makes up for her looks. She portrays each of her characters in a really different way, making each character significantly different from her other ones. My first drama of hers was Bloody Romance and I loved how she portrayed her character. But she really deserves more recognition for her acting skills. I believe one day soon people will realize how good of an actress she is.

    1. I think most people recognize her acting skill. But they wonder why she isn't getting "fire" with her acting skill and the projects along with the leading men she has

    2. Too normal.. not pretty enough hmm weird cos I find her prettier than Yang Zi for sure.

      She's actually at good place but if people are expecting her to blow up like Yang Zi and Dilireba, then she needs the right romance drama with a lot of cute and cheesy OTP moments. That's the one genre that can easily make someone blow up in popularity. She's been doing serious/heavy drama and while some of them were doing decently, it's not the type of drama that will make the lead super popular. People mostly tend to obsessed with romance and drama CP shipping.

    3. Totally agree 6.b. She haven't had that one HIT drama. Or like you say cheesy cuteness all over, even if there's no OTP if she just play wimpy and stupidly cute I think that's what fans usually like. Screw the "she needs to play kick ass strong", sometimes fans say those things but really they don't actually mean it. Sun Li, Liu Tao, Wu Jing Yan, Bai Lu, Sandra Ma, Li Yi Tong play serious roles and their are no hype around them at all.

      TBH, Besides AOL Yang Zi had not been lucky with any other projects as a grown up, exclude her younger days. And Dilreba, TMOPB was her only decent project too, where she wasn't even the lead. The only thing common is both actresses played stupidly dumb roles. Similar to ZLY's road, Boss & Me and Journey of Flower, the characters are super super wimpy. And all those hit dramas mentioned, the OTP aren't always the best. The only thing in common is really the actresses acted the same way. The childishness, and speaks like 3 years old. They look young and pretty enough to kill it I guess.

    4. I agree in a way. I feel like ONE possible reason why she's not currently very popular is not because she's not pretty enough (she's cute-pretty), but because her face is too ... standard cute - something that would count as 'normal'. Like, it's not interestingly pretty like Yang Mi's or Tiffany Tang's. But whatever, right? As long as an actress's looks are OK, and their acting is good, they'll be popular soon enough.
      Coming from a 14-year-old: Go Li Yi Tong! Though I personally haven't seen any of your dramas, I support you ......

    5. Yang Zi's Go Go Squid is so popular tho. Stop being bitter about others success. Even her My mowgli boy is also good and mind you her role there is way different from her role in GGS,it just didn't get that so popular bacause people still hyped up of GGS but it still rated higher than sword dynasty and begonia rouge... she even have great chemistry with whomever she's working with...

  7. She's not the prettiest but still prettier than ZLY, DLRB, YZ. Her acting is a bit stoic though, like everyone else, not as if she lacks anything more or less although I would say YZ have a bit more ranges in acting than the rest.

    Considering the amount of works she's doing and being restless like the big stars, she didn't play her game right, if she'd bought a water army nobody would dare to say she isn't popular enough. Usually, people working that hard with that many projects, they would have more fans than what she has now. LYT is really honest that's for sure.

  8. glad she handled it well, she frequently makes it into top actresses who didnt get big despite being with big male star

  9. Give her a xianxia with tons of sugary romance and heart wrenching angst and I bet you her career would skyrocket. Look at Yang Zi and Dilireba after AoL and 10MOPB. Hell even Zhao Li Ying got way more famous after Journey of Flower. They're not the most deep dramas but people like them (myself included). I disagree about her looks being plain, and with her acting ability I think she deserves to be one of the most famous young actresses right now.

  11. Li Yitong is both cute and pretty, not to mention super talented. I LOVED her acting in Legend of the Condor Heroes. She was the best actor in that series and made the show worth watching. Can't believe people think she looks plain. Her acting alone makes her look better than the rest of the big actresses out there who can't act but just have a pretty face.
