Joe Xu Hai Qiao who plays the second lead Yuan Zhan in Lost Love in Times seems to be having issues with the way that his character is being portrayed on the show from his lines being changed to scenes being cut.
Last week, he posted, “What? Lines were changed? Usurp the land? Excuse me! The mouthed words don’t even match, cant you see? @LostLoveinTimes.” He later commented on his own post by adding, “In the scene where Zhan and Xia were drinking, Xia asked Zhan a question, but where was Zhan’s response? Excuse me, this scene had a second half, right? Where did it go?”
Fourteen Nights who wrote the original source novel seems to side with the actor as she also commented on the same weibo post to praise Xu Hai Qiao, saying that no matter what was done during post-production, at the time that the drama wrapped, Xu Hai Qiao gave the best Zhan Wang and the most complete portrayal that is faithful to the novel.
I stopped watching the show a long time ago to be able to relate, but it seems like the show just hasn’t lived up to expectations based on ratings and general word of mouth and now this. On a brighter note, in case you missed the schedule change, Lost Love in Times is cranking out episodes much faster to air three times a week rather than twice. It airs two episodes at 10pm every Wednesday to Friday.
