With Ashes of Love becoming one of the most talked about dramas and Yang Zi and Qin Jun Jie announcing their breakup around the same time, Qin Jun Jie has been getting a lot of hate due to incessant speculations about why the couple broke up.
Netizens are accusing him of using Yang Zi as a stepping stone to gain fame and making assumptions that Yang Zi was more into their relationship than he was. Moreover, Qin Jun Jie allegedly said in an interview post-breakup that he did not like Yang Zi‘s plain-spoken personality which would have been hypocritical of him as she has always been known to be like that.
To make matters worse, his studio even liked a post on Weibo that said, “Because he is being crazily attacked by netizens for cheating, Qin Jun Jie is full of grievances.”
Qin Jun Jie‘s studio released an informal statement last Sunday on Weibo to explain their side. Qin Jun Jie has been busy with shooting and dubbing that he didn’t have the time to give interviews on the breakup so the statements he allegedly made are not true.
According to the studio, the original article has since been deleted but there are some netizens who are still spreading the fake news. On the studio liking a post on Weibo, it was done by accident and the staff has already been reprimanded.
While we will never know who is in the right or in the wrong in the relationship, I feel bad for Qin Jun Jie since it can be frustrating when fake news get out of hand. I wish Qin Jun Jie and Yang Zi the best of luck in love and in life!
