Actress Xing Fei, the female lead of sweet romance My Little Happiness 我的小确幸 caught flak from Netizens recently after cameras caught her cheekily saying her new show must be the best one amongst recent drama offerings. The actress had been chatting with fans to promote the drama when she was recorded saying: “I haven’t watched it yet, but I know My Little Happiness must be the best in recent days.”
In recent weeks, Xing Fei and good friend slash Put Your Head on My Shoulder co-star Daddi Tang Xiaotian have been keeping viewers company with their sweet sweet scenes as law intern Cong Rong and surgeon Wen Shaoqing. Despite its tried and tested trope of childhood sweethearts turned lovers, lots of good things have been said about the show. If anything else, the undeniable chemistry between Xing Fei and Daddi Tang as seen in their bajillion kissing scenes heating up the cameras and the fluffy lighthearted feels served up by this rom-com has had many fans gushing.
However, some Netizens seem to have taken offense with her statement, asking if it’s really necessary for her to say such things. Doing so seems to be indirectly dissing the other shows also on air currently, which is why Netizens have said she’s being a wee bit arrogant and cocky about the show’s success. Meanwhile, others have pointed out that she shouldn’t be overly proud since she didn’t exactly fit the image of law intern Cong Rong from the book and that her acting needs some more work.
In response to the uproar from a fleeting comment, Xing Fei responded by expressing her confusion, “Can’t I praise my own work? Don’t mess with my vibe. In my heart, My Little Happiness is the best (show) in recent days!” The next day, male lead Daddy Tang commented on Xing Fei’s post to say, “Cong Rong (Xing Fei’s character name) is the best in my heart.”
What do you guys think? Personally, it looked like Xing Fei just said it in jest, but admittedly she should’ve remembered how things can sometimes be blown out of proportion in the industry. I guess for actors, it wouldn’t hurt to be a little more careful about what they say lest it be misinterpreted and taken out of context. But also, let’s be a little more tolerant and cut them some slack too.
What a stupid controversy. She should be allowed to be proud of her work. She wasn’t putting anyone else down and she was clearly being cheeky.
People are allowed to be proud of things they worked hard on. Why keep working if you can’t be proud of the results? So tired of the crazy Netizens and their contrived controversies.
What’s wrong with netizens, they have nothing to do at home but create controversy? Why can’t someone be proud of their product, and say it’s the best? Should they go around and say that it’s mediocre? And why is saying their product is the best be twisted into saying all others are bad? Complete ridiculousness.
She should be allowed to praise her own show if she is happy with it. It’s not like she said “my show is the best and all the other airing shows are rubbish”. Dumb netizens looking for something to complain about.
I wish this guy wasn’t the lead though. Hhe has one of those uncanny valley plastic faces and I didn’t like his acting in PYHOMS. Are they in the same agency that they keep getting cast together?
Actually the male lead was reccomended by the female lead, xing fei(female lead) discuss with the producer team who is the fittest role to act,then xing fei reccomended tang xiao tian(male lead)
Btw i like the male lead though,they have know each other for a long time,so they can act naturally like real couple
This drama is love. Male and female leads have adorable chemistry, smelting kisses and it’s relatively free from tropey scenes and plots that ruin C- dramas. It’s a great drama so why shouldn’t she be proud of her work and say it’s the best? Damn netizens have nothing better to do than create a storm in a teacup. It looks like a lot of these netizens have nothing better to do than nitpick celebrities for the smallest things. They really should get a life and find something more productive to do with their time.
this makes absolutely zero sense… more pointless controversies and I’m glad she didn’t feel forced to make a pointless apology. I would hope that every actor/actress out there releases projects that they feel comfortable being proud of and promoting. she never criticized anyone else, so people should stop putting words in her mouth.
anyways, WATCH MY LITTLE HAPPINESS!!!!!!!
MLH! Xing Fei have right to please her work.. remember you can’t please everyone.. Okay.. Congratulations ? to Xing Fei and Tang Xiaotian or Daddi Tang.. Excellent performance in any aspects.
