After lying low for some time since getting caught in a controversy, Xiao Zhan suddenly took to social media last week to post a photo of plum blossoms which had people trying to guess its meaning and viewing it as a hopeful message from the singer-actor.
On April 13, Xiao Zhan’s new rendition of the 1964 classic entitled Ode to the Red Plum Blossoms 红梅赞 was released in a special album for public welfare. As part of China Youth Daily’s initiatives to promote patriotism, Xiao Zhan was one of three singers to sing their rendition of a classic song of their hometown. It was probably not the comeback people anticipated, but things are certainly looking up with Xiao Zhan back at work. Although the plum blossoms turned out to be a literal teaser for his new song, its meaning of overcoming adversity in the winter is not lost.
Yay!!! I like his new song. Welcome back Xiao Zhan. Can't wait to see your new dramas & other projects.
You really cannot put the good man down. He's still on top of the celeb ranking despite of non-exposure, what's more if he's on a roll. Hopefully we can now expect the release of his pending dramas.."the wolf" seems interesting, though he is only the 2nd lead. I am excited to his chemistry with Darren Wang.
So happy to see XZ active on social media again! I think he designed/drew the plum blossom himself. And the logo for his own studio.
I'm a big fan from his very first appearance on the boyband competition show. The fangirl in me has only grown with each of his new projects. As a novel fan of MDZS, I loved his portrayal of WWX in the Untamed. It was different from how I imagined the novel character, but he made WWX so much more relatable, lovable and heartbreaking. I'm looking forward to "Douluo Continent" the most among his unaired dramas.
XZ has said before that he doesn't want to be just an idol. He has experienced the lows of the industry and isn't afraid to start from the bottom again. I love watching his interviews because his responses are insightful and intelligent. All the best to XZ!
