Oh boy! I just saw ZYL's performance on Youth Mango Night and he was amazing! I love how he sang the first song, "Suddenly I really miss you" and then at the end that sunshine gesture...awwww... that was simple but soooooooooo sweet and came as a surprise to me.... his expression was kind of shy as well as that last sign of breathe - He is probably thinking I completed the performance...I can breath and relax now - it shows me that he was nervous and being nervous means that he truly value the chance to performance to his fans :)

Yes, that little sun on his palm is a smart surprise for his fans. I just bursted into tears when I saw it. 

I was also touched by a video: after the performance, the fans gathered outside the stadium even though it was raining. And Yilong just walked out to the crowd especially for the fans. He walked up to the fans holding an umbrella, and waved to the fans. And the rain stopped! He’s no doubt a little sun!

How long before it's on youtube, do you think? I'm in the US, so youtube is probably my best chance to see it.

Multiple news confirmed that To Dear Myself is coming in early September on Mango TV! The finale of TV series showing now will be on Sep 2nd. So it’s likely that we’ll be able to see Chen Yiming in two weeks! 

 

There’s no exact info of Season 2 of Reunion: The Sound of the Providence yet. However, there’s evidence that it has past the censorship. So I reckon it’ll also come very soon. I hope it’ll be in late September.

I'm a big fan of ZYL after Guardian and reboot. Just wondering what his popularity is like in China? Is he quite famous?

I don’t know how you define “famous”, but in my opinion he’s more than famous in China in many ways. He first rose to fame in the summer of 2018. Many youngsters began to know him because of The Guardian. He has been on top of all kinds of ranking lists. His followers on Weibo increased from 5 million to 10 million in a few months. Then at the end of 2018, the Story of Minglan showed on TV. And the majority of people began to know him because of Xiao Gongye. Then he got to appear on CCTV Spring Festival Gala, which was also a proof that he got  accepted by the county’s authority mass media. 

He also got many commercials  and brands to cooperate with, which also proved his business value. (Some big brands like Coca-Cola, KFC, Chopard, LV, L’Oreal, etc.) And the products he promoted all sold out in seconds!

And he is able to get involved in many important programs because he now has a huge fan base, being the lead role and working with the best cast and crew. He wouldn’t have this many opportunities if he were not famous.

And there’s also one side effect. Once you become famous, you get more haters (or anti fans). The statistics showing that he once had 20k-30k active haters on Weibo. (By “active” they mean you will continue to post something about that person every day). Just think of that, the number is even larger than other celebrities’ active fans! And in 2018, they also named him one of the “two top social media stars” (双顶流), which was not a good phrase at that time. The public tend to dislike “social media stars” because they always represent “good looking, lots of crazy fans, but no talents”. But ZYL proved himself with time and effort that he gained the popularity because of his talents, his acting skills, and his moral qualities. 

It’s been two years since the summer of 2018, he has achieved so many goals. He has 26 million followers on Weibo now. But there’s still a long way to go ahead of him.

I have also known him since Guardian and the short live show Clown. His portrayal of Shen Wei in Guardian left such a deep impression that I was hesitant to watch reboot or any of his other shows. I thought I would be reminded of Shen Wei. He was also fantastic in Clown, this was live show where he was moving around acting and singing it was very impressive, the child actor did great too. I can only imagine the teamwork needed to create something like this. 

 

I finally watched Reboot and was impressed by his acting again. His portrayal of Wu Xie feels like he is Wu Xie and not a character he is playing. I did not find a trace of Shen Wei or any other character in his portrayal. Then watching him in Dear myself as Chen Yiming, needless to say I won’t have any preconceived ideas again regarding his acting. I am now watching all his shows that I can find with English subs.

 

I have also watched some of his interviews and he seem very down to earth, serious about his craft, improving himself, trying different roles. His singing is also getting better.  I also like his awkwardness makes him feel more real (the drawing of sun on his hand during one of his performance was adorable).

 

I wanted to thank you for always providing updates and tidbits.  Sometimes I come across some negative comments but without understanding the language and context of the situation some things seem worse than they might be. Every actor has fans, people who dislike them and people who are indifferent, but I did not know there were people who would spend time and energy by actively posting negative things. I mean if I don’t like someone, I won’t follow them or their work and not waste my time.

 

I agree with you, he has a long road ahead of him. I hope he will get better scripts and roles to play both in dramas and movies, and work will good directors and productions. I cant believe I am following an actor like this and even get worried about him, anyways thanks again.

What you said bout him, more or less, what I feel bout him too...I know bout him since guardian, sometimes I miss this character. Clown too, it's just 15 minutes performance, but I cried when I watched it.. his acting left deep impression and feelings..his eyes, it's like it's real, not pretending..

And I'm thankful fans sub his interviews..I can learn few things bout life from his answers. And yeah his singing is gettin better..I love to listen  to his songs and ost..it has calming vibe for me...

I haven't followed actor, like this, and lol yes sometimes I'm worried bout him. Coz you know filming, he may get hurt, too tired, etc but he never whine, and continue to work hard.

Thanks for the response.

 

I have also been avidly watching all his shows. It begin with Guardian, then I realised he played the second male lead in Ming lan. Then I watched Love three lifetime (loved his character, not sure why the female lead didn't pick him. lol)  and grant you a dream like life (bad drama but good ZYL eye candy). I've also watched a lot of his song performances and interviews. He seems very down to earth and serious about his art. 

 

Recently, I watched reboot and he's portrayal of Wuxie is so good. I've yet to get into To dear myself...It's been a lot of ZYL during Covid lockdown in Australia but becoming a fan of his has actually made this time period easier to endure.

 

I looked at his Weibo and he has 27 million fans now! I agree, he's career is only looking upwards and I hope he continues to thrive.
