Despite last year being a trying time for Chinese actor Xiao Zhan, the year 2020 ended on a high with him appearing in the public eye once more in different year-end galas and winning different awards. He also came back to the small screens with The Wolf which was filmed in 2017. However, it seems that trouble still lingers.
On January 29, Xiao Zhan studio released a statement saying that around 11am today, two middle-aged men appeared at the ground floor of the building where their office was located.
One of them drove a vehicle that has been modified to fit an electric LED panel and was maliciously broadcasting loudly through the speakers. The other man who was filming videos near the vehicle intimidated and threatened the staff members who attempted to stop them. Xiao Zhan’s studio called the police at first instance and the two men have been taken away. The statement also says that Xiao Zhan and his studio resolutely oppose the disruption of public order.
Even before the statement was released, bloggers were already reporting the incident online with photos of the LED screen flashing demands seemingly written by fans asking that the studio make certain changes like replacing Xiao Zhan’s team. However, many fans believe that the act of causing a public disturbance was really done by antis trying to cause trouble. Nonetheless, they praise the studio’s quick response in turning matters over to the police.
