Here I am still trying to picture Kris Wu as a prince in what would be his drama debut, but rumors that his pairing with Yang Zi is off the table keep coming.
Please take everything here with a grain of salt since things heard through the internet grapevine aren’t exactly the most reliable. However, the latest buzz surrounding The Golden Hairpin 青簪行 is that filming has started, but with a casting change. According to rumors, Yang Zi is staying on as the leading lady while the production team has decided to replace Kris Wu after much deliberation. Names allegedly considered include Hu Ge, Lin Gengxin, and Song Weilong, none of which panned out. But maybe the most popular among the theories is Li Xian because he was Yang Zi’s love team in Go Go Squid! He also fit the criteria of the rumored leading man whose: 1. name is two characters 2. born between 1985-1992 and 3. has a free schedule. Li Xian fans have simply laughed off the rumors as ridiculous since the actor’s schedule is far from free. Li Xian is in fact busy with his new movie Schemes in Antiques.
I honestly don’t know how to feel about this. While I was worried about how fans would receive Kris Wu and Yang Zi’s pairing, a small part of me was looking forward to seeing how good they’re going to look together.
