Xiao Zhan Makes His First Post on Social Media After Controversy Triggered by Some Fans

xiao zhan
Finally, after weeks of radio silence from the idol, a little egg in the form of a new post on Xiao Zhan’s social media page appeared just in time for the Easter weekend.

Of course, while the post itself is essentially just a photo of plum blossoms that have started to flower in springtime, dare we hope that it is a sign that the idol has finally decided to emerge from his self imposed seclusion like the flowers that have already started popping up for the season?

Since the backlash from the A03 controversy precipitated by some of Xiao Zhan's fans exploded the industry which gave birth to the boycott Xiao Zhan movement at the end of February, the idol has pretty much been keeping his head down for the time being until things have calmed down a little. In stark contrast to how his Weibo page used to be chock full of updates about him and his projects, laying low has meant there has been almost zero activity on his social media page, save for a lone repost thanking healthcare professionals for their sacrifice a couple of days ago. 

It's nice to see Xiao Zhan finally taking baby steps to get back on the horse so to speak. With nary a peep coming from the actor’s camp, rumours have naturally been spreading and some people have even gone so far as to claim that a certain “X surnamed actor” has been diagnosed for depression. Of course now suddenly he’s become the target of another wave of vitriol from some Netizens who say he’s using “depression” to get back on the good side of people. Thank goodness this was already debunked by the hospital he was allegedly getting treatment in.

Anyway, I’m sure many fans concerned with how he’s been doing are very happy to see that he's at least started updating his social media again.  Here’s hoping that Xiao Zhan will be able to bounce back from it all better and stronger this time around. Update: Adding this for those who want to know what happened.

  2. I hope it means "life" & that Xiao Zhan is back. He stayed silent all this time - it can be that his management's idea or he chose to stay quiet. He is very talented & the true fans will always support him.

  3. I think this picture means rising/breaking through in darkness or hope in hopelessness.

  4. He needs to get back on someone's good side? Seriously? He is still in the Top 10. If there is something he truly needs it isn't that. Heck, those people need a life of their own. I always feel so sorry for those young celebs. Even when they choose to become one it doesn't mean they are owned by so-called fans. There were enough that ended truly with depression or worse. People never learn.

  5. An annoying fan fic writer started the whole issue, since she dared the start everything, she should face it heroically but she use death threat and committing suicide to win. Those anti-XZ emphasize with that lowly creature, but somebody who did nothing like XZ doesn't deserve the slightest empathy? Does anyone see the contradiction? Anti-XZ are inhumane and has no empathy to begin with, they are only pretending to empathize with the writer to make XZ lose. Their goal is clearly aiming at XZ's downfall, they're just playing victims.

    XZ obsessives fans are no longer as annoying as the anti-XZ group who calls themselves 227. Anything they said are done by XZ fans, they never have a single solid proof. XZ fans suffered so much. What's more, those 227 attack XZ personally too, and spread malicious rumors all over the place.

    It doesn't matter how annoying you guys think the fans are anymore, I think it's time to support the fans and destroy the evil 227 from flattering about how everybody believes their fake rumors.

    1. Just shut up. People like you are exactly why celebrities face backlash. Fanfic writers just write in their own space. If you guys left them alone no one would care about whatever they write. They even put tags and warnings but noooooo fans had to click and make a big mess with the reporting and made everyone know. And now yall realize what it did to Xiao zhan yall blame the fic writer instead of reflecting on your rash action.

    2. Terrible fanfic like you should shut up in the first place. After creating trouble, tell others to shut up, sounds very 227. You must one of those hired 227.

      Who said fanfic can be about just anything? I love Yang Mi, I’m gonna use her as an example because she is famous, maybe more than Xiao Zhan. If I write about Yang Mi in a fanfic and write that she is a prositute and explicitly write about her sex scenes, and an artist is going to draw that out, what would her fans (or even non-fans) think? It is just too inappropriate. NO EXCUSE! NO EXCUSE! NO EXCUSE!
      (Somebody gonna start telling me to keep YM out of this, OH, SOME 227 SAID IT’S FREE TO WRITE ANY FANFIC I WAS JUST TELLING YOU GUYS A GREAT FANFIC IN MY MIND HOW IS MY FREE THINKING WRONG?) – Apologize again I have to use my YM as an example (only shameless writers wouldn’t apologize after offending others, call themselves a fan?)


      Keep preaching that fanfic is free, but it ain't. Why didn't the stupid writer put her own face in the story? If they themselves aren't willing to pornographize themselves, then why do it to others? Especially famous people who she already knows will be offended. She did it on purpose.
      BTW, The stupid fanfic was R18 but the writer purposely gave it a M rating that's why people got angry after being tricked to read the content and find out how disgusting it was. You still think the writer wasn't hired to stir problem? Is it the fans fault, or somebody slicky?


      SPECULATION 1. Xiao Zhan fans report made A03 shut down
      *** NOT TRUE: This is baseless with no proof. Give out evidence first. No matter how likely it is, it is still only as possible as the same thing with 227 reporting A03 to frame Xiao Zhan fans.
      A03 was reportedly going on and off even before all these. It’s way too coincidental, that’s why the writer is suspected to choose the right timing to do all these.
      *** IF TRUE: Fans did the right thing. The story should be reported. The problem was brought up to the writer already and she continued to stir problem. She could just take it out and use another platform. It’s obvious what her goal and intention is at that point.

      SPECULATION 2. 227 disguised as Xiao Zhan fans and reported the entire A03 platform.
      *** A HIGH POSSBILITY: It’s too coincidental that this happened when A03 was having performance issues. Pretending to be somebody else and make a public announcement that you will shut down A03, and it really happened to shut down for real, an easy ruse to make who seems like the culprit.
      --------------------------------------------------------------
      227 are equal suspects as the fans too, but after they successfully push all the blame at the fans, they also spread tons of fake rumors about Xiao Zhan including such rumors that his family died. Xiao Zhan career was affected and lost endorsements.

      If you ask who’s more terrible? Some Xiao Zhan fans are terrible, but are they as terrible as the writer and 227? At least they are just protecting an idol in a very selfish way. But 227 and the writer slyly created a tricky spot for somebody clean to be unable to escape from being burned alive.
      SO I rather support the bad fans, I wouldn’t care who is disguising as fans and create problem (that is uncontrollable), and I would support the bad fans. Stop supporting 227, when 227 no longer have any support this problem will go away. 227 needs to extinct first, then when there are only the bad fans left, good fans should kick out bad fans with attack whenever they appear. Right now, 227 is creating trouble everywhere worse than the bad fans, just gang up with the bad fans for now and distinguish 227 first.

    3. This is so long im not even gonna bother finishing. I literally don't even know what this 227 you are talking about and fanfic culture has been out and about since years. This writer isn't even special. She wouldn't have done anything if people didn't go out of their way to share her fic. You come up with this conspiracy theory that she's sly and schemes for all this to happen when you all could have just ignore fanfic. There's worse kind of fanfics about kpop idols whether its sexual or not and you don't see mess like this happen. if you just avoided them then there's no issue because it's fanfic. IT'S FICTION! NO ONE IS GOING TO ASSOCIATE THEM WITH THE ACTUAL ACTOR. because if u don't give attention they'll be bury. But no, you "fans" go and give attention to it all over weibo and now come up with all these conspiracy theory to avoid blame.

    4. Please move on from this. Xfx have an understanding to �� and move on from this issue. The best fans are those who fangirl positively and don't engage in arguments or fanwars.

    5. @ 5.a & 5.c

      You are must be the same person. What did Xiao Zhan do to you before? Why are you being so mean? Can you just stop it?

      Delete
    6. @5.d

      As you see, lots of fake rumors are everywhere. Being silent is exactly what the antis want because whatever truth they twisted people will only believe them.
      Like you see false information from 5.a, she said the writer put tags and warning on her fanfic and XZ's fans choose not to ignore her fanfic. Not even true. The tags were not there, after luring the fans in and getting them angry as intended, AO3 was shut down by nobody knows. The most suspicious is the writer and her supporters who are targetting XZ. But all the blame was just pushed at fans and XZ only, when the other party is so much more suspicious. They use lots of LIES to make things messy and cover up.

      If this problem is over I wouldn't bother saying anything but people are still targeting the actor that it's all his fault for not grooming his fans. So annoying!

  8. XZ doesn't need to apologized to anyone. True fans wouldn't blame him. Hope his new dramas can air soon.

  9. I still don't understand why he is getting all the hate. The poor man literally didn't do anything. I hope he comes back stronger than ever. Good Luck to him!

  13. Hey guys, I really a fan of Xiao Zhan. So handsome and had many talents. I hope all this scandal and stuff get over soon. it is annoying. I think they need to shift it from the bad scandal and shift back to his work. he should be paired up with good actresses to help him out of the negativity, so far I don't see any good candidate. I hope he works with actresses like Yang Mi, Dilreba or Victoria Song. All are excellent and beautiful actresses!

    1. I hope he will make a drama with Dilreba. I will vote for that. ��

    2. You act like he needs to be paired up with certain actress to save his career. XZ works hard, theses actress you mention besides VS hasn't dramas hasn't been that great. Honestly besides a pretty face Dilreba acting is lacking! Yang Mi looks to old for XZ. Besides Victoria I don't think I want to see him with the other two.

      Delete
    3. Please.... Dilreba is lucky WU Lie is even acting with her. They should of cast a different actress not the other way around. She looks more like his mother.

      Delete
    4. Nobody saying he needs a popular actress to propell him. Stop making up things. We just think he's handsome and she's pretty and will be a good match, you are obviously just itching to make trouble for XZ by hating on actresses. DLRB CAN ACT, and she's also pretty at the same time, so? Too jealous? Go take it out somewhere else!

      Delete
    5. @ 13.c

      In general the younger female actresses pair with older actors are better. Dilreba looks like Wu Lei's older sister, not mother. I like to see Dilreba pairs up with Xiao Zhao.

  14. Yes!! me too! Both beautiful people and good actors! I hope they pair up together!!

    3. OH MY GAH!!! LOL!!! HAHAHAHHAHAHA
      They were only on the same stages and fans make it look like he was paying quite some attention at her ^_^
      They really do look like the greatest pair!!! Yang Mi wouldn't be bad either.

      I find Vengo and Vic too old looking for her, Vin looks a tiny slightly younger.
      Xiao Zhan is neither young or old, and has more manliness.
      It's really perfect. One is handsome and the other pretty, it's such a beautiful match. If she is still searching for a partner, OMG I can ship these two in real life already.

      Delete
    4. I wish he will replace Wu lie in the new drama. That would of been so perfect! I don't think the drama will have high ratings, they should of cast Xiao Zhen and Dilreba it would of guarantee a hit! Thank you for the video, omg she is staring at her the whole night. who wouldn't I think she is the most beautiful girl there!

      You are welcome. Yes. I also wish that they replace Xiao Zhan for that role instead of Wu Lei.

  15. In the current world of C-ENT, it have evolved into a very ugly culture. Fans are like locust, easily brainwashed and programed into brainless mobs by capitalism. It is amazing how little people understand this situation. Take off your fan filter and see the world for what it is. Life your life for yourself, not for someone else.

    1. It's huge competition for Chinese Celebs to have fans, lots of actresses and some actors even bought their own fans. Usually I don't trust overhyped actresses with huge fanbase that's unrealistic when their acting is so average. What you think is reality might not be the truth. Some fans might sound crazy, but that might just be because they were hired to be a fan. Second is, competitors also hired fake fans to act crazy and cause troubles as well. Possibly, nobody is crazy in real life but paid to act crazy. C-fans make up how much of the C-population? If they are all crazy for real, I suppose nobody in China is graduating and hard working like claimed in the media.

      If you are living your life, you should not try misleading others.

    2. Marketing play a big role. Nowadays, there are very few Chinese celebs with strengths to match their popularity. People with strengths are often 'explosion-proof' by their competitors in order prevent them from becoming 'traffic'. Opposite is also true, company can also create a so call 'traffic' by excessive marketing even though they don't have the strength to complete with others.

      In any cases, ''traffic' can only last for so long. Everyone knows that only 'work' can speak and be recognize by a wider audience. Fans are only a small number, it is the quality of your work that will speak to the rest of the C-population. How long you can stay popular and how long you can last in this industry really depends on your strength and your work.

    3. 15.b As long as somebody work and produce crap, make the fans say the crap is good then they are ranked 1st.

      Lots of good artists put in strength and produce better works, but they don't get first place if they don't know how to "get the fans".
