Legend of Fei which started filming in September 2019 has taken longer than expected with the cast and crew having to halt work for almost two months due to the COVID-19 epidemic before resuming in March 2020. The production finally called it a wrap on April 28, 2020 and for actor Wang Yibo, it means finally leaving Hengdian to return to his busy work schedule.
It seems that his return to normalcy also means dealing with the hassle of sisheng fans (stalker fans). His agency Yuehua Entertainment released a statement dated May 2, 2020 to reveal that a sisheng has installed a GPS tracking device in the car that is being used to take Wang Yibo to his different work schedules. The agency will be taking legal action as it is a serious violation of the actor’s rights.
They further issued some guidelines for everyone to follow: “Don’t follow the car, don’t chase the car, don’t follow the plane! Don’t crowd at the airports, hotels, filming locations and other public places. Don’t sell itinerary and location that’s not been made public and don’t leak filmed material and content!”
Sadly, this kind of thing doesn’t surprise me anymore. These are things that don’t even need to be said especially with extreme social distancing measures being taken due to the pandemic, yet somehow people still engage in such activities.
