The popularity of Legend of Fuyao 扶摇皇后 has turned the attention to its two leads Yang Mi and Ethan Ruan, and it turns out that both have a story to share about the day they first met. Apparently, Ethan Ruan has been harboring some hurt feeling towards Yang Mi since their first meeting around 3 to 4 years ago for a commercial shoot.
Now that they have worked together in a drama, Yang Mi recounts how Ethan Ruan spilled his grievances towards her after wrapping up the shoot for Legend of Fuyao. Yang Mi was completely baffled and does not remember how she could have hurt his feelings.
According to Ethan, it was during the first day of the commercial shoot. He approached Yang Mi to introduce himself, “Ni Hao, Ni Hao, I’m Xiao Tian.” She quickly dismissed him and told him that he didn’t need to be so polite since they’re only shooting for one day. What she said just seems so like Yang Mi, and I think it’s cute and adorable that Ethan still remembered the incident after all these years. It’s like school boy who didn’t get the attention he wanted from the girl he likes.
Despite this ‘hurt’ feelings, when Ethan found out that Yang Mi will be playing Fuyao, he admitted that she was the reason why he chose to accept the role.
