Zhao Liying’s Blunt Comparison of Novel vs Adaptation Sparks Worries About Legend of Fei

`zhao liying
It may have a ways to go until its premiere, but Legend of Fei 有翡 is surely a hot potato right now after a post from actress Zanilia Zhao Liying who many think was throwing shade at the show.
 
During the wee hours of the night, Zhao Liying updated her social media with a photo of two burgers. The one akin to a scrumptious McDonald’s Quarter pounder she labels ‘Novel’ while the other uglier burger she labels ‘Adaptation’. I cannot agree more since I’ve had my fair share of novel-turned-dramas or even movies end in utter disappointments.

Though she did not say anything else, netizens were quick to assume hat the actress was referring to Legend of Fei, which she is filming at the moment. Many fear what the comparison means for the adaptation – that fillers are being added to the show to make it longer than necessary – which is an unfortunate practice that is nothing new to C-ent. Ugh! I don’t know why they can’t refrain from making draggy dramas. 
 
Rumors say that second lead Zhang Huiwen is getting extra scenes as well as third lead Zhou Jieqiong who is speculated to be getting a romantic angle with Wang Yibo’s character on top of if. Again, it’s an all too common problem for production to focus too much on supporting roles’ that the main leads end up having less screen time. Zhou Jieqiong is getting hated on as a result. Still, I’d wait for updates before springing theories from left to right.

With all that’s happening, I can imagine why Zhao Liying’s fans are feeling concerned for the actress. This will be her comeback drama after giving birth so it’s natural for them to get riled up and hope for its success. Although, some expressed their worries that she might get screwed over once again like what happened to her in Princess Agents especially after seeing how her plain styling appears to be worse than her supporting characters.
 
Rumors say that Zhao Liying is no longer participating in the drama although her camp already denied that claim. Nonetheless, it seems that something has definitely bothered her enough to turn to social media. 

Update: On the same day, Zhao Liying studio issues a statement: Zhao Liying joined Legend of Fei to portray the character ‘Zhou Fei’. The actress and her team highly value and love the project. During filming, she is earnest, professional and works hard towards a common goal with the rest of the Legend of Fei cast and crew. Sincerely hope to deliver a good project so as not tet down everyone’s efforts and expectations.
