Author of Daylight Entertainment's New Drama Receive Threats from Yang Mi Antis Over the Actress's Rumored Casting

Fans can really be borderline crazy sometimes. Author Wei Xi's 未夕 found herself at the receiving end of threatening messages from antis who were vehemently against Yang Mi's rumored casting in a new drama based on her novel. 

Wei Xi's novel Children of the Qiao Family 乔家的儿女 is set to be adapted into a TV series produced by Daylight Entertainment whose recent hits include All is Well and The Story of MinglanNo cast has been announced yet there have been rumors of Yang Mi's attachment to the drama which has displeased some netizens who didn't think twice to let the author know about it. 

Wei Xi vented her frustrations in a now-deleted post to say that she's had enough of the insults and threats she's received day after day. She also revealed a snippet of one of the messages that she received where one user cursed at her and threatened to commission a bunch of yxh (ying xiao hao / marketing accounts) to 'expose' her novel for copyright infringement. 

The user said, "Do not use Yang Mi, I warn you. What the hell is Yang Mi? If you cast her, I guarantee the drama will flop. Copyright infringement, I have tons of yxh for that." Said user also suggested another person, presumably someone he or she was a fan of, for the part. 

Wei Xi was understandably mad but issued an apology for her outburst later that day. She admits that she was shocked by the insults she's received and the threat to make up rumors about plagiarism was the last straw that pushed her to vent her angers through social media. She apologized for her outburst and said that other than official updates about the drama, she will no longer post anything unnecessary because she is not a fan nor an anti of any celebrity.  To those cursing her family, she wrote, "no one can curse anyone to die. Everyone take care of your health, stay protected when going outdoors, wear a mask! Happily chase after celebrities, be happy fans!"

Obviously, Yang Mi's supporters were furious over what happened and at the same time worried for their idol. Most of them headed to Wei Xi's Weibo page to apologize for the incident and relayed their hope that it won't affect the author's impression of the actress. As of now, there's no official announcement about the casting so this little incident was really nonsense to begin with.

  1. Those antis have always been saying bad things about YM acting skills and praise their own idol.

    Don't underestimate the quote:

    "When 1 person say something others will not believe it, but when 100,000 people say the same thing, people will believe it."

    They all say YM (including artists under her) have bad acting skills in large groups and they really did win, YM is attached with that reputation for a long time already. And the idol they praise in large groups really did earn her good acting title through them.

    At least when YM's drama flopped, she doesn't use her fans to make tons of fake accounts to praise her dramas being good when they are not. She is honest with her works and even have to endure with others cheating. Just because YM never cheats does not mean her dramas always flops and her acting is bad.
    She never complains about how hard she worked or how much she suffered. She's the best example as an A-list artist. I'm glad the author is a fair person, hopefully she will be alright.

  2. I just DON'T understand how anyone could find a reason to hate YM. I mean, she may not be the most beautiful actress, she certainly is very pretty and is superb at acting. She's also a smart businesswoman and of course I can't guarantee this but I feel like she is also a great person at heart.
    It surprises me that such a popular and beloved actress is being hated on so ferociously. Crazy antis!

    1. She is stunning sure, but superb at acting? Lmao she is mediocre at best. When she isn't dubbed you can really tell how terrible she is at delivering lines. Daylight would be doing themselves such a disservice if they cast her as the lead.

    2. I dont understand why ppl are always criticizing this part of the actress. Its just that her voice is very cute and something a cute teenager would say and somehow thats bad and everyone calls it "whiny". of course you didn't say this but i think u are mistaking supposedly "bad voice" for what u said.

      Delete
    3. @2.b It has nothing to do with it being high pitched or cute. It's her delivery. Zhao Li Ying's voice is whiny but she still knows how to deliver lines well. Hell, even Zheng Shuang with her super shrill voice does a better job than Yang Mi. Yang Mi has gotten lazy because of the use of voice actors so when she finally has to depend on her own voice, she sounds like an amateur. Listen, I loved Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms and thought Yang Mi did a pretty good job. But to call her a superb actor is ridiculous.

    4. Yes I agree Yang Mi is superb actress.. only some antis say that she is mediocre.. even she is won Jacky Chan Actions Movie Award for Best Action Movie Actress, it's not ordinary award. Zhao Liying and Zheng Shuang also good actress.. But Yang Mi is better.

      Delete
    5. Really obvious usual Ym haters are usually Zly fans jus because Zly copied her looks and acting style. Zly doesn't sound whiny but stuttering it doesn't make her sound intelligent. None of Ym fans care to say she is the BEST actress like some people. Fans are only saying she is a good actress. To say she is mediocre go check your brain why you even like her dramas if she is so average you wouldn't LOVE her dramas. She played tons of supporting roles before becoming famous, and her supporting roles were notable and provedful of why she deserves leading (not cuz she's pretty). She wasn't that pretty to begin with, her acting won so many fans that she BECAME pretty. If she is so mediocre she wouldn't be a top actress. And guess what too? She never use the pitiful route and cries about how hard she worked her way up. Others attack her she doesn't even attack them back. Just because her voice is squeaky and you call her lazy and not good at acting is so ridiculous.

    6. Lets just conclude that YM is amazing and no haters can bring her down :)

    7. @2.e I don't think ZLY is that great of an actress either. I'm also not a hater just because I think she she's mediocre. All of these super popular actresses (Yang Mi, ZLY, Tang Yan, Yang Zi, etc.) are nowhere near good enough to be as popular as they are. They're idol actresses that are mediocre, and I happen to think Yang Mi is the worst of the bunch. Again, not because she has a squeaky voice. I already said it's the way she delivers her lines that is terrible.

      Actresses like Ni Ni, Liu Tao, Zhou Dong Yu, and Sun Li are the truly superb actresses. To put the other actresses mentioned in that same caliber is what's ridiculous.

      Delete
    8. @2.g "Worst of the bunch" when her dramas are usually better in quality and she's more popular. Sounds hating with no logic. There is no problem with how she delivers her line, her expressions are on point. In fact, so many actresses tried to copy the way she delivered her line. Boo :P

      Ni Ni, Liu Tao, Zhou Dong Yu, Sun Li are great but they do different genres. They won't be successful in idol dramas either. When Ni Ni do Xianxia idol show similar to TMOPB it wasn't great either. Not true that they can't be mentioned in the same caliber, they are as skillful as each other. Liu Tao and Sun Li are mature and cannot play young 16 years old girls because they look older and will get slaughtered by netizens. They maintain a safe reputation by choosing good projects and having good attitudes. Crazy young fans are not into stalking their life anyway.
      YM's projects aren't always the best, but they don't flop all the time. She performed well in all of them and she kept a very good attitude. Like what Yu Zheng revealed, antis will find anything small to smear these popular people, when they can't find anything wrong with the person herself, they go for her acting, or projects, etc.

    9. I think maybe because most of you are not Chinese speakers you won't really comprehend how actors act on camera and the way they say their lines. Yes, some actresses probably don't deserve their exploding fame, but I am surprised to see Yang Mi (and Tang Yan) to be considered part of this list. Again, most of you would not understand (sorry this is VERY hard to explain) because you're not familiar with Chinese conduct. My parents and relatives are all Chinese and I was brought up learning the language as well so you don't need to question my view.

      Delete
    10. Wth? I'm Chinese, Speaks Chinese, nothing is wrong with Yang Mi or Tang Yan. Your view is nothing compare to the population of Chinese speakers. We should stop questioning you everytime you back yourself up with the dumbest excuses.

      Delete
    11. @ 2.i "I speak Chinese so I have the final say on who delivers lines the best." Does that mean if a native english speaker declares that Kristen Stewart is a superb actress, that any non-native speaker can't argue against them? You sound immature.

      To the other comments, I never said Yang Mi's productions flop. They do very well as do the other idol actresses. That has nothing to do with their skill level. The Untamed was the biggest hit and both Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo are not top level actors (they're not bad, but they're not great yet either). And dude, I would not quote Yu Zheng if I were you. He's such a controversial scumbag person. I greatly disagree with you on the other actresses. They pick good projects because they care about more than just money. You seem to think that whoever is the most famous is what matters. Love and Destiny wasn't as good of a show, but Ni Ni's acting was leaps and bounds better in L&D than Yang Mi's was in TMOPB. That's all my argument was. Yang Mi is an okay actress who is very beautiful and has many fans. But her acting could clearly use some improvement. I'm not attacking her or the author that was mentioned in the article. If she is cast as the lead in the Daylight production I will be disappointed but I will still watch it and hope for the best.

    12. Somebody sounds so much like a troll here, anybody notice that person's flaw?

    13. First off, i am not a fan of any actor (meaning I don't follow or have an obsessive interest in anyone). I just love good dramas. Talent and skills stand on its own, not based on how big a fan base they have or how popular a drama is or how beautiful/handsome they are or even how hard they work. I watch a lot of dramas - Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Indian, American,some European ... And I can see for myself that YM's acting skills are no way near superb - she is just average in the Chinese industry. There are others in her category too, both male and female. You can love them all you want but please do not insult the truly good actors by saying that this group of purely traffic actors are the best actors. On a side note, I also won't be attracted to watch Daylight's new drama too if YM is cast in it cos I already have seen some of her past works, including 10 miles. But no way would I go and curse anyone for their choice, (tho' I would expect Daylight to cast actors based on suitability and skills, rather than traffic idols); it's their money, not mine. And hey, who knows, the director might be able to work miracles with actors who have limited range. ��

    14. Daylight is just a reputation, doesn't mean their dramas are always good. You sound like you don't love good dramas, you love well reputed stations.

      Anyway, ZLY is an idol traffic star who has way more traffic than YM and she proved that casting idol into Daylight makes things more successful than serious stars.

      Do people really like slice of life dramas that are slow and boring? Nope, look at similar dramas such as, Royal Nirvana and Rise of Phoenix (didn't somebody say NiNi is the best, well this drama is a flop). They are not successful because the stars are not traffic idols. People dare to say out truthfully that those shows are too boring and draggy. Then how come, how come in Ming Lan, everybody say, I love slow and boring things?

      Daylight + traffic idol = success

      Sorry but you don't understand best recipes.

      And who cares about this Daylight stuff anyway? YM is already famous does she need to depend on it? Nope. Those dramas are so boring.

      Her haters will buy account to say the drama is bad (which will likely be true because of how slow and boring) and then blame that it's all YM's fault when it's the production's fault. And YM is not buying accounts to make herself look good, she will lose.

    15. Daylight has a good reputation because they consistently put out good work. That reputation didn't come out of nowhere. Ming Lan did well yes because ZLY has a large fanbase, but also because it was just a really well done show. It had good writing, pacing, and fleshed out characters. You think it's boring? Well that's on you and your 12 year old attention span. The rest of us loved it.

      Royal Nirvana and Rise of Phoenixes are so different from Ming Lan that it's not fair to compare them. Ming Lan is a historical slice of life whereas RN and ROP are heavily political palace dramas. RN and ROP were both high budget dramas with wonderful production quality and amazing actors, but the writing went downhill throughout both of them. Both of them also heavily butchered the source material which is why they were so scrutinized. If you're going to make comparisons then at least make ones that make sense and don't leave out information.

      Who cares about Daylight, you ask? Nirvana in Fire, Ode to Joy, All is Well, Ming Lan, Battle of Changsha, etc. All are widely loved dramas. Clearly they make good dramas. They have their duds, sure. But their dramas in general are better than most other studios. Yang Mi would be lucky to star in one of them. Just because she's one of the most famous actresses doesn't mean she's one of the best.

    16. @2.n Again I say, Yang Mi doesn't need Daylight. Daylight needs HER.

      Delete
    17. I like the author of Ming Lan as a person but the story is too amateur.
      For the drama, the pacing is unreasonable. The character Ming Lan does not have a clear goal and her personality is everywhere.

      Lots of other Daylight projects were directed really well, but with Ming Lan they got really lazy.

      The main character is naturally gifted with sudden skills and doesn't have to learn anything, or go through any obstacles in order to learn anything. Imagine a champion teaching you basketball, does that mean you will become the best in basketball? Just because they teach you, does not mean you will be good at it. Every skills you have, you must go through practicing. Ming Lan can do perfect shootings because it was a natural instinct ever since as a young child, not because her mother taught her. Her muscle are just naturally way stronger than men, when she plays polo she is so much stronger to be able to push them instead of vice versa? Did we see how much she exercise to the point her body is that well built and sturdy?

      She revenges on her sister with a sneak attack and then run away, through out a period of 10+ years in her life, she never had that opportunity? Suddenly, she attacked out of the blue then ran away. The acting was very bad. The drama does not show on camera if the character looks scare from her actions either, or if she isn't scare, then we should know that. We have to see her expressions to understand her better. Things happened unplanned. And after they happened we usually don't see her next intentions. Another example, the marriage scene when she laughed inside her carriage, her expression leaves confusion and it didn't make sense. Most of the scenes that could have been the highlights of the show were not done thoughtfully. It creates wonders, what was even the purpose of her doing those things? What did the character gained, and how far along is her with her plan?

      The show couldn't speak for itself. They were unable to show why Ming Lan is a strong and smart character through acting. They relied on fans to explain these confusions online. If this type of drama was not played by an idol, there is no way it would have been successful. The inconsistency of the main character's mind, and unclear of direction and goal she has, it is hard to root for her if played by anybody else instead of a traffic star.

    18. I honestly don't know how you have come to those conclusions at all. They did mention how she was good at both arrows and polo, but I guess you just weren't paying attention. It also explained that she wasn't just naturally gifted. Her mother who was raised in the countryside taught her. She also had been allowed by her grandmother to play and practice polo. These weren't actually shown onscreen because they weren't necessary. Her being good at polo was part of her character. Just as her having terrible handwriting was also part of her character. She wasn't made to be perfect at everything, but she did excel at some.

      I'm confused by what you mean by sneak attack and then ran away? It was all planned out perfectly. There was a reason why she waited. There was a reason for everything she did. Just because you didn't pay attention doesn't mean the show didn't explain it. Every action on her part was shown later to have been done for a reason.

      As for acting, everyone can have a different opinion. I know you're this site's resident ZLY hater so I won't try to convince you on her. But you can't deny the other veteran actors' stellar performances. You're trying to nitpick at this show despite the fact that it was beautifully done. Simply because you hate ZLY you will disparage such a wonderful production. You even previously said that Daylight productions are boring, but now you're trying to backtrack and say that it's JUST Ming Lan that's bad. If you're going to make an argument, make it consistent and comprehensible. Don't just spew out whatever nonsense comes to mind because you're a ZLY anti-fan or blinded by your adoration of Yang Mi.

    19. for 2.R ... I just commented once on 2.d. I want to say you're wrong if you think here is Zhao Liying's hater, you should see the comment above (2.c.) who first praised Zhao Liying and said bad about Yang Mi .. since the comment 2c. that's why here talking about Zhao Liying too ...
      I'm not interested in talking about acting because it's just a matter of taste ... I certainly have my own opinion about who is acting good but I don't want to talk too much and I watch drama because I want to enjoy drama not to judge acting.

      Delete
    20. Yes, most of YM haters are from ZLY fans. I'm using Ming Lan as an example because it was Daylight production and same author from this article. Just because you are blinded by your adoration for ZLY does not mean everyone hates her just because they think her dramas are not good in quality and her acting is only so-so.

      Delete
    21. @2.t ZLY wasn't the point of my argument at all nor am I her stan. I was arguing for the writing of her character in the drama and the production as a whole. I made a ton of points in my comments in 2.o and 2.r, none of which you had an actual rebuttal to. Just call anyone who disagrees with you a "YM hater" without any logic to back it up.

      Delete
    22. Uh...from my understanding somebody was only talking about Ming Lan as a character and you were the one who brought up ZLY hater because of adoring YM in the first place now you are shifting blame. And your argument about the Ming Lan drama was circling around it did not answer anything.
      Just look at all those comments above how you made all these bad comments first then when you couldn't answer you start saying you didn't say this you didn't mean this, but it was obviously you. You want to spread rumors YM cannot be in a Daylight show but she's already too good for that.

      Delete
    23. To the one commenter all the way up there, saying ZLY voice is better, that is hilarious.

      The differences is huge ever since from past then to now.

      ZLY is not good in speaking, needless to talk about singing. You see from the videos, ZLY tried to dress like YM, and also compete using the same talents? She always used YM as a role model and live in the shadow of YM that's why her fans don't like YM. I see lots of her fans dare to say she is the best of the age, but she is the most far away from it. They only like her flaws because they feel connection to it, but talent is not about liking the flaws.


      Ever since the beginning to date, YM has always been the upper hand in everything. They are only a year apart in age, but YM is first to be famous because of her multi talents. In speaking, singing, acting, and even who looks better and good personality.

      The only talent in ZLY right now is acting, but her acting is copied from YM and still did not exceed or surpass. She also gotten self to look younger and prettier, but her looks still resembles YM in the end. Her speaking has not improve too. Even in personal life, she also married YM's ex bf. This is why ZLY fans only want to recommend her to a Daylight Ent. but excludes YM to the grave. YM doesn't even need to rely on fans to defend her projects and they can do well if the project itself is good.
      YM is a huge road block.

      The photo was edited so it focus on YM so, not sure if that was a reflection on a mirror, or if somebody was at the back. The face is quite huge so it doesn't look like somebody from behind, it could be a mask.

  5. Yang Mi's defamation process has been going on for years, but they are frustrated because Yang Mi still remains above any idol.
    I am sick of visiting the internet so much negative news that the media makes for her, most of it is too excessive and too personal.
    But she is still the strongest actress in her generation until now she is still at the top.

I am so glad this actress is strong and isn't affected a bit by her haters. Even if I'm not exactly a fan I like her and am happy she also has so many defenders.

  6. Personally ZLY's acting lacks emotion and calling YM's acting mediocre in TMOPB and comparing it to love and destiny has bias written all over it.
