Ren Min and Bian Cheng drew attention for their heart-wrenching story as the young couple in Serenade of Peaceful Joy. However, young actor Bian Cheng has come under fire for the way he treated Ren Min in their recent livestream.
When asked about her ideal type, Ren Min was trying to say that just like her character Huairou in the drama, she is attracted to looks. Bian Cheng chimed in to say that the criteria is a bit too common so Ren Min had to explain that looks is just the basics and that she likes someone funny. Bian Cheng then said that he’ll try his best to be very deep! cold and ruthless (basically the opposite of funny)! He adds, “I’ll try hard not to become your ideal type.”
When Ren Min was asked about health and wellness, she said that she soaks her feet every night because her feet get very cold. Bian Cheng interjected, “Because your feet are so stinky.” Ren Min says there’s no way he could know that and he’s made it awkward saying that to which he admits that he doesn’t know. Ren Min turns back to the screen to say, “Okay, forgive didi (she’s referring to Bian Cheng as younger brother).”
When asked about his first impressions of Ren Min, Bian Cheng says, “Just someone who’s not very good looking, not very tall, just a jiejie (older sister) who is mediocre… ” After a pause and what appears to be prodding from people behind the camera, he goes on to say, “After interacting with her, felt that this jiejie is actually nice, takes care of us sometimes and is very serious about her work…”
When asked if they could have a chance to work together again, Ren Min says that she’d be happy because it’s proof that she’s still young. Bian Cheng on the other hand says, “There probably won’t be a chance (to work together)…. If you play my aunt or my senior, will you think that you’re still young?” Ren Min clarifies that they could play a couple or classmates. Bian Cheng says, “Who wants to play a couple with you.”
Ren Min turns to the screen confused as she says that she doesn’t know why he’s suddenly being like this and Bian Cheng goes on to mutter some things about being scared to fall emotionally…”
With their drama, it’s quite normal to see these two appearing together as they even had a photoshoot with Cosmopolitan China. Bian Cheng is 15 years old while Ren Min is 5 years older than him. Both are really young, full of potential with promising careers ahead of them but it seems like Bian Cheng is throwing all that away with his recent behavior and it’s only been a day since the finale of Serenade of Peaceful Joy!
Bian Cheng quickly issued an apology through Weibo, “Today is my first livestream with Kuankuan, a little bit excited and nervous that I crossed the line, saying sorry to Kuankuan here, thank you everyone for your supervision that has allowed me to see my mistakes and shortcomings, I will become more disciplined going forward. Again @RenMin, sorry.”
Is it really an apology at all when he's using the nickname she's said she hated? Age is not an excuse for this headasserry, I for sure hope she, and other girls for that matter, never has to work with this rude piece of work again.
Wow he's career will be over by the time he's an adult if he continues with that behavior.
He is a teenager and immature. How many of us said stupid things at 15?
Tfboys certainly wasnt like that when they were that age. Ppl all say they have very high eq and very polite. hes just a rude piece of shit
Wow, I feel reminded at my youth since guys were alike that. So, he still has a lot of growing-up to do. So, I can excuse that since Teenagers are have reduced empathy bc their brain gets remodeled. I’m sure we all did things as teenagers we cannot understand or accept today anymore.
What truly makes me rise my eyebrows is the disrespect he shows to an elder person. 5 years in his age is a lot. It doesn’t show a good character. So hopefully he will learn how to show respect or he will stay a child actor forever.
Well, it's better than no apologizing at all. Some people had the same attitude like him before, they just make their fans call them straightforward and honest. They even nickname themselves i.e. Ms.Bluntness, thinking it's cute and funny. He at least apologize and got scared, maybe he could have used some fans (or paid fans) to help him play a big boy but he didn't.
he's a kid. he still needs to mature. at that age it's hard for children to be professional. hope people don't cast him aside for this.
Still a kid, but i decided not to watch his work again.
A total lack of manners in public is not excusable even in a hormonal laden teenager. It is not about whether he is a professional in his field or not. This is probably a result of China's one-child policy where some parents spoilt their one kid rotten instead of teaching them good values. I have seen so many much younger children than him with good manners and poise, so Bian Cheng's behavior cannot be excused, especially when he has had so much more opportunities than others to be in the public eye. It was not even a one-off mistake as he kept that behavior up the whole show. In more traditional families, such behavior would have said to have "shamed the parents" cos it shows "lack of parental teaching".
Why not compare him with wulei and the tfboys kids who show proper attitude and great manners when they were even younger than him, instead of excusing him because other people did the same? And I've never seen someone who said things as rude as he did be coddled and excused either. If he was truly sorry he would've apologized sooner before this trended on weibo, ffs if you actually watched the livestream,the staff and renmin herself even tried to warn him as best as they could. But he kept on going, and later when the damage has been done, in his damage control apology he called her by the nickname she has stated before that she dislikes. It's clear he's only apologizing coz of the flack he's receiving.
Do you know what most of the comments on renmin's weibo say? That she's beautiful and that she doesn't need plastic surgery. People know she'll be hurt and insecure by the things he said, any girl would, especially when it's said directly to your face by your costar who played your love interest. I don't feel an ounce of pity for him.
He is a spoil brat. His parents really need to correct him now. Hopefully it's NOT too late already. This is also a character issue.
There are stars more famous than Wu Lei that washed themself clean by just continuing acting and having fans. I don't think it will ever happen, but just saying it's not impossible. Pretend he continuing acting, then after having so much fans people will start saying there's nothing with his atttitude he was just trying too hard to be cool and it's cute. Maybe they'll nick name him Mr. SharpMouth for being honest like everyone else who always tries too hard to be polite. I don't support that but just saying it can happen cus it happened before, not unheard of.
I get that he is young (and dumb) and that a lot of young boys act like this, but his young age does not excuse him for his terrible manners. I don't know what their relationship is like behind the scenes, but they seemed to have got along well from their pictures. It's a shame that he had to make bad choices and comments during a live where many people are actually watching. The comments he made, those are the types of joking comments my siblings and I would make to each other but definitely not to any person outside of our circle because that's just rude. Hopefully he'll learn and grow up from this mistake. I feel bad for the girl. She's cute, so I don't know what this problem is. I hope he doesn't get to work with her again, because she deserves better than this.
