My Heroic Husband star Song Yi was the unexpected recipient of a lot of heat from Netizens this week after the posters for her new drama Brilliant Girls 愛的理想生活 were released. Featuring outfits worthy of a modern day Stepford wife, the photos were all themed around the captioned “good marriage style” 好嫁風 which literally suggests how a woman should dress to easily land herself a husband and to marry well. This naturally angered a lot of people and many Netizens have pointed out that the caption does not respect women at all.
Refusing to let the issue fester, Song Yi immediately took to social media to issue an apology, saying that it wasn’t her intention to belittle or offend the group of women she herself identifies with (as an unmarried woman). “The original intent revolved around how marriage crazed my character is….Dai Xixi is a person who is passionate about the idea of marriage and who fantasizes about it. But this doesn’t mean she lives her life to please others. (The photo has already been re-edited. I would like to apologise for this once again) wrote the actress. The updated posters now indicate “gentle style”, “fresh style”, and “elegant style” with the previous caption crossed out with a giant red X.
If you’re a wee bit curious about how the term “good marriage style” came about, it was coined by a still unmarried internet celeb in her 30s who started copying how Hong Kong actress Gigi Lai dressed before marrying her billionaire husband. I guess the blogger’s strategy worked – not only did she get herself a husband, she also started teaching others her “secrets of love and marriage”. Nowadays, the term became applicable particularly for women wanting to nab themselves a wealthy husband by looking a certain way.
Why is she apologizing? She didn’t make the poster, the dramas design team did. And it’s for a drama about a character not her personal thoughts.
Those Cnets are just too free and love to create their own dramas…
what the heck!!!! Yeah it’s her character’s fault, she doesn’t need to apologize!!! lol Some people have too much on their hands lol.
lol, I get both sides but the caption was directed towards her character and the theme of the drama itself. Not real life nor was it pointing at unmarried women. People need to stop turning reel into real unless it calls for it.
But heck, I want to know how to nab a rich man too. lolol
Cnets are so crazy these days…….they are too bored and have nothing better to do maybe? Pfffffttttttt this is a drama. Don’t like it? Don’t watch it.
