It hasn’t even been a day since Simon Gong Jun was mobbed by a crowd at the airport on March 13. That same night, Zhang Zhehan found a swarm of people waiting for him in front of his hotel. His fame has similarly risen since starring in Word of Honor with the actor’s weibo following nearing 13 million as of late.
As he got out of the car, Zhang Zhehan was met by daipai (people who are paid by others to take photos and videos of celebrities on their behalf) and livestream broadcasters holding up their phones to get a glimpse of the actor while he and a staff tried to make their way to the hotel entrance.
