Being no stranger to playing the villain, Wang Maolei has put on a memorable performance once more to become the hated villain in Story of Yanxi Palace 延禧攻略. That’s usually something that wins praise, yet there have been antis who are personally attacking Wang Maolei with comments as extreme as telling him and his whole family to die.
While there are many that left supportive comments and called out the haters for being absurd, the actor admits that he’s not so strong after all. As he was being cursed at too much, he has decided to turn off the comments section on his weibo temporarily. He thanks everyone’s support and those who liked Story of Yanxi Palace.
Furthermore, he ends by doing a great service to fans and answering the question that has been on many people’s minds after the finale. On his character’s real identity, he confirms that yes, Yuan Chunwang is the illegitimate son of the late King. The Empress Dowager’s reaction is proof of it.
