Was Gina Jin Pushed Out of “Martial Universe” in Favor of Crystal Zhang Tianai?


It started just like any other unveiling when official posters of Crystal Zhang (Go Princess Go) confirmed her as the female lead Lin Qing Zhu in Martial Universe 天蚕土豆. No posters were released for the second lead but sources pointed to Gina Jin (Monster Killer) as Ying Huan Huan. 
Things seemed to be progressing smoothly and there were even reports that Martial Universe has been recruiting stunt doubles for Yang Yang, Crystal Zhang and Gina Jin. However, there has been a shakeup lately because another official poster of Crystal Zhang has been released where she is now playing the role of Ying Huan Huan, whose character has been upgraded to female lead. 

The production team posted on weibo to clarify that the change was for the betterment of the drama and Director Zhang Li even admitted that after meeting Crystal Zhang, he finds that she is the only choice for Ying Huan Huan. 

Where does that leave Gina Jin? Nowhere, apparently, because Wang Li Kun will be taking the role of Lin Qing Zhu instead. On the same day, Gina Jin tweeted a curt but telling posts where she says, “Reason is not won by argument. Good riddance.” Another celebrity by the name Wang Li Xin supported Gina as he says, “Attention, Gina Jin’s schedule has opened up. First to grab, first to prosper.” 

To put the nail on the coffin, promotional posters of Gina Jin as Ying Huan Huan has been making the rounds on Weibo, posters that are no longer meant to see the light of day.
