She has many, many fans (and not just in Mainland China) just bcos of the person she is...wonderful.

 

Agree. With her natural talent, dedication, hard-work, kind hearted and her positive thinking, she is like the sun - you can't block her; she will shine regardless :)

Sorry but this is one of the lamest excuses I have ever seen for someone to dislike an actress. Did you know she hurt her spine (during horseback riding) making a movie in 2013 called 'The Palace?' She cannot stand for too long yet she was insistent on doing some horseback scenes in PA. Plus you should know (and you probably do) that stunt/body doubles are there for a reason. Their main job is to do stunts/scenes that the actors/actresses cannot do. In this case ZLY's body doubles were there because of her previous injury. In the end the actors/actresses safety is the number 1 priority of the production company. So please, think before you talk/write....

 

Yes, I do know she hurts herself, and I’m fine for her to have body double for kneeling scenes. However, it was actually sitting scene. And idc if she has 30 body doubles or 3, my point was the producer and herself should have come up with a smarter way to mask the fact that she needed body double. The scene I’m complained about was at least 5mins long, it does show her face, however, it also glaringly obvious that she used body double as well (I have explained how I spotted it). For that scene, all she needed was 3 shoots side way, show her face and her body with the support actor. That’s it. That’s what 3s?

 

did I say she can’t act? No, I’m saying my brain can’t stand being deceived poorly. I actually noticed it while watching, the article was much later on. And I know how much she’s loved and hated, and how she tend to be the victim of sabotage, however, with her star power, she needs to write better contract, negotiate better and be more assertive on certain scenes if her health not allow her so, and possibly, take a rest for her body to heal.

 

my reason for avoiding her series if this glaring body double issue keep popping up, is that she is now the actress for mass market (well always has been but got worse), her series cut corner and not high quality like that of Yang Mi or Hu Ge, and she keeps letting ppl has the reason to destroy her credibility. I’m welcome her to change my mind, and I thought it did with PA until the body double issue and how the story just drag out for the sake of dragging out, and how her fame is being used to push other support actors to stardom -.-

 

anyway, I voiced my opinion, and I’m on the land of the fan :) so I understand the disagreement and the hates, that’s just my opinion, you can take it or ignore it :) I’m done here. Will check out the series when it’s out :) if it’s good, I’m sure I’ll stick with it, even though I’m not a fan of the styling (the period setting time, not whether the design for style is pretty or not)

Are you a doctor, physical therapist, or chiropractor? How do you know that her injury will/will not flair up in certain scenes? Are you a film director or producer? How do you know that she only needs 3 shoots? Do you really think that scenes are all done in one attempt? You have no idea how many re-shoots it can take to do one scene. That '3s' you speak of can take much longer, up to an hour if the director does not like what he/she sees. You do know that films are also edited right? Have you ever though about that?

 

You're contradicting yourself. Listen to what you just said:

'...however, with her star power, she needs to write better contract....and be more assertive on certain scenes if her health not allow her so and possible, take a rest for her body to heal..'

Certain scenes are requiring her body double(s) to be in her place. But you are the one COMPLAINING ABOUT THOSE BODY DOUBLES!

 

I did not say that you said she couldn't act. I am merely pointing out that you are disliking her (your words not mine) for nonsensical reasons. Yes you have your own opinion of what you like or dislike. However when you spit out b*llsh*t about celebrities who others admire you can't expect people to just sit there and do nothing.

 

Many chinese dramas nowadays tend to drag on the series to make more money and/or have another season. But you should blame the production company, not the actors/actresses in those dramas. 

 

Look you might be a nice person in real life, but you should be mindful of what you say. This goes for both online and outside in the real world.

“Many chinese dramas nowadays tend to drag on the series to make more money and/or have another season.”

 

Obviously with the number of episodes released in a duration of a week, a 12 episodes would be finished in 3 weeks if released an episode a day for 5 days.  With costs in costume, set and location, the producer would like to add more than 12 since those it is already paid for in the first place.  Hence, longer episodes to 36 or 50 especially period drama with such props and costume costs laid upfront.
