They say any publicity is good publicity .. but I’m not really sure an epic prop fail really counts? Historical drama Rebirth For You 嘉南传 has a very cute couple in Ju Jingyi and Joseph Zeng Shunxi who portray a romance between a princess and an imperial guard. The web drama has been doing well in terms of viewership but has also been criticized for shoddy production values among other things. In fact, it has hit the trending list recently but not for the usual reasons.
Now it’s fairly typical for shows to have fake stand-ins as props in the background, but when it comes to an action shot that has the main character jumping on a horse and riding away, surely a fake one won’t do? Nonetheless, that’s exactly what happened in a scene where Ju Jingyi hopped onto a brown horse and rode away. From the back, it does look like the actress is riding away on a real horse. However, in the shot from the front, the prop horse wouldn’t have been noticeable except the camera panned out to reveal … its unblinking painted eye.
Talk about an epic fail right. If anything, it did get the job done to get the drama more attention (and got some laughs from viewers while at it). This is not the only thing they failed to edit properly with eagle-eyed netizens calling out a fake egg, a body double and other mishaps. While Ju Jingyi looks stunning in costume, there were also complaints about her pristine perfect outfits being impractical when her character whose a princess sets out to do woodwork. Needless to say, it seems the show is eliciting different responses from viewers. Are you one of those enjoying the show? or not?
I don’t like that show at all. But that clip was actually so fast that nobody can tell.
Either people want to pause it on purpose or watch the show with the slowest speed possible.
Reminds me of what they did to Dilireba in The Long Ballad, there was a spin and a blurry face did not look like her bc it was blurry ofc. Somehow it made it on many platforms as hot news. Are they even million dollar shows with super crazy high budget? I wonder why the high budget shows are not the ones getting these type of attention instead? Not stanning this show but who cares bc it is such a cheap one, and it’s not like they were taunting how much they spent on CG or other things.
I’m tired of these terrible idol dramas, not bcoz of any actors but bcoz of the terrible plots and ungrounded hype. I feel I haven’t watched a real drama in three years 😓
I agreed with you. They released so many dramas for the last two years and many of them are terrible (the plots/stories). I rather watch good qualities dramas and less quantity instead (great story, acting and directing). Praying!!!
Wow, that clip was so quick that I didn’t even catch it without watching it a few times. Who even pays attention to these things? LOL!
I haven’t watched the drama other than the short clips on YouTube (no time to watch full dramas nowadays). Seems ok and pretty standard, the leads are nice looking, but I have to agree based on what I’ve seen so far that the female lead’s costumes are a little too overdone for some of the scenes. She stands out compared to everyone, always.
Los dramas de Ju Jingyi son todos iguales no veo ninguna diferencia solo cara bonita cero actuacion son aburridos
I can see that happening, but sometimes there just isn’t an innovative and unique storyline to star in, so a lot of people are going to pay attention to the aesthetics. At least Joseph and Ju Jingyi look good together and the set design is nice. Nowadays, I’m not looking for depth with these dramas, just pure entertainment and fun.
Who cares?I enjoyed the series am fan from Philippines
I read a post on douban that a her mom was watching a series based purely on look. As long as the aesthetic is very good looking, her mom will watch it, didn’t care about plot, acting or anything else, just purely on look.
I didn’t watch this series but I noticed that female lead overall aesthetic is the same on her previous series.
I’m glad her mom is honest and did not promote her by advertising something so false like she’s the best actress ever. LOL!
Not the actress mom, the poster on douban’s mom love watching series with pretty aesthetic. I guess now we know why some series got made.
I thought that dangling headdress stuff over her face was not practical at all, especially so if she is into woodwork n carving
Yeah her very first scene, showed her with long, wide sleeved dressed sawing off wood… realy???
I like the drama because ju jingyi and joseph are so sweet and romantic to.look at..i don’t care about the props and things like that i only focus on the couple …i like them doing sweet gestures and their expression of love with each other…
This actress is even worse than DD. Why should people wacht this, are they all masochist?
What a waste of time! Luckely isn’t mine.
Aducate ourselves with some poetry. music or walk in nature or just do nothing dreaming on whatever you want will be better than spend time wachting this drama.
Lmao ZLY fans are really sore from the beating they’ve taken downstairs recently so they’re here to trash every other actor 😂
Haha lol, they can’t even spare an actress from such a poor production. JJY is not even competing to become a good actress, she won’t ever compete to become the best actress. ZLY fans really don’t have to be so scare.
Mind your own business No Name. You don’t get to dictate what other people spend their time doing. Don’t act like you’re not wasting your time writing hate comments over this drama. Shouldn’t you be off reciting poetry and walking in some field instead of hanging around here?
Dear commentators. criticize based on facts. Don’t drop works that you can’t even create, let alone play in. don’t blame it all on the actresses or actors just for a non-fatal mistake especially because YOU HATE ONE OF THE MAIN PLAYERS. if you don’t like it please go, watch the drama of your favorite actress or actor. Humans are not perfect, but they have all learned and give the best for the audience. no one wants to give bad work for you to enjoy. it’s just a matter of feel and hate. if it doesn’t fit, please don’t watch it, but don’t blame other people’s work if it’s unfounded. please constructive criticism, not dropping. because we are not necessarily better than them.
We all commented based on facts, so I don’t know why you get pissy for. Like dude, the horse look really fake LOL.
Her aesthetic looks the same from one series to another, do you need me to provide you proof of that?
So to take chill pill and stop trying to stir trouble when there’s nothing here to stir.
People are allow to criticize if an actress can’t act or a singer can’t sing.
