There have been zero updates about Mirror Twin Cities 镜·双城 since last year but rumors just keep coming. It wasn’t long ago when there were rumors of Li Yifeng and Yang Zi starring in that drama yet it turned out to be nothing but smoke. New rumors now point to Dilraba Dilmurat and Xiao Zhan as the leads and that the two will allegedly start filming in Hengdian.
With both actors having large fanbases that can be fiercely protective of their idols, many aren’t too keen on the two being linked together. Both Dilraba and Xiao Zhan fans object to the rumors and firmly call for others to wait for the official announcement before jumping to conclusions.
Come to think of it, both are busy with their respective projects. Dilraba is currently in the middle of filming Love Advanced Customization opposite Johnny Huang. She has unaired projects like The Pillow Book and Legend of Sun and Moon. Meanwhile, Xiao Zhan is currently filming The Oath of Love opposite Yang Zi. He also has unaired shows such as Joy of Life, The Majesty of Wolf and Douluo Continent.
Given how well these two have done in their past costume dramas, the team up might actually be a nice decision. But as their fans say, there’s no point getting worked up over something that may or may not happen. Who knows? This may be a ploy from people who’s got nothing better to do than to pit the fans of two popular celebs against each other.
This is looking like The Oath of Love and Legend of Fei where the actors and the drama starts trending weeks before the official announcement, and nobody comes out to deny it except for fans. Then weeks later you see the official announcement.
Anyway the drama is rumored to start filming in Jan so by then both actors will finish filming their current drama. Only time will tell whether the rumor is true. Both look good together anyway and has been paired multiple times in bilibili videos, so it would be great to see them work together.
Yang Zi and Li Yifeng sound great.
Dilireba and Xiao Zhan sound great too.
I can already guess everyone wanting to yell at Dilireba taking away things belonging to Yang Zi again. Pitting them against each other. But everything was only rumors from the beginning, these roles don't even belong to anyone yet. Nothing was officially announced.
And of course Xiao Zhan fan girls are the craziest of the craziests. Always hating every pretty actress near him in case she date him or something. The actresses fans usually have no problem with the actresses acting with anybody, it was never issues before…so now if it's suddenly a problem…that's very suspicious, maybe somebody is just trying to prevent Xiao Zhan from pairing up with popular actresses so he won't continue getting popular.
Yeah, I can for the life of me never understand why YangZi fans always slandering against Dilireba. Even if there's nothing new going on, I have seen them beating down on Reba's popularity just so that they have something nice to say to their idol. I love both of them, YangZi and Reba. They both are amazing in their own way. So, I just wish people would just chill the freak out and enjoy what they bring out to the table.
Yang Zi fan here but I feel bad that Dilireba suffered the most.
Because Yang Zi fans feel that Dilireba snatched Golden Eagle award from her I guess.
Xiao Zhan fans are the mix of solo stans and his CPF with Wang Yibo.
The crazy ones mostly the CPF since they want him to be with Yibo and hate his other friends/co-stars. Not only actress, they attacked Xiao Zhan other friends and X NINE too.
His solo stans fighting with CPF everyday.
If this drama true, I hope the hype about him already cool down a bit. I love Xiao Zhan acting, he's good actor but I don't want his fans hurt Dilireba too.
I read XZ studio already made statement about the continous incidents caused by obsessive fans disrupting his work & life,also his relationship with friends and if they not stop, his studio will take the matter legally.
Let's hope the crazy fans leave the poor boy alone. If this continue popular actress will really avoid to be paired with him which not good for his early career 🙁
Dilireba has the most fans among Chinese actress nowadays lol they are no push-overs.
I feel like as fans, we should support artists as they are and support them for no matter what they do. If we are a true fan, then we should be able to support them for whatever decisions they make and respect their privacy. Sometimes it may seem that one artist took the resources from another artists, but things may be more complicated than we think it is. Anyways, just support your favorite artists and don't hate on others.
Very well said.
Anon 2.f Dilireba has lots of fans but they can't always argue that she is a good actress. She was put into so many bad dramas that did no justice to her. She suffered lots of backlashes about being bad at acting. And after winning the big award she got even more of those. And when rumors say she will work with Xiao Zhan his fans told him to never work with a bad actress who couldn't act. People say she only have fans because of her pretty face alone.
After the hit of The Untamed and Jade Dinasty, Jade Dinasty is shit but got more than 400 million RMB and people praising his good acting (and good face) despite the movie bad reviews.
Xiao Zhan need to be careful to choose drama script and lead actress to maintain his image. People have high expectation of him. He's new after all.
Dilreba is very beautiful and very popular but many reviews about her bad acting as well. Personally, I think she is not bad but not that good either, depend on the script and character.
Jade Dynasty is no shit if compare to the stupid drama. That IS all the damn story is about, it's a very boring story. The good thing about the production was the director and they hired professional fighting choreographers. The movie is bad, but days like these, where talents are too scarce. That was the best it can get these days.
Give the 400 million to Xiao Zhan. he really saved the movie.
His acting in The Untamed was a lot better, I gave an okay and passable for his acting in Jade Dinasty but not memorable.
Also disappointed with Li Qin lack of screen times.
