In a BTS clip a Netizen posted questioning whether this was her “true nature”, The Romance of Tiger and Rose actress Zhao Lusi can be seen jokingly “inserting” an IV needle up her co-star Ding Yuxi’s arm when he loudly yelped “you really pricked me”. The post kicked off heated comments online since the pained expression on Ding Yuxi’s face appeared to be quite genuine. Thankfully however, Ding Yuxi shut it down real quick, defending his The Romance of Tiger and Rose co-star. “I really was just faking it” he clarified.
Well, guess we really have to chalk it up to him being a great actor since he was “just playacting”. The clip’s original poster complimented his acting skills as well saying he’s really good as you wouldn’t be able to tell he was just faking his reaction. It turns out this really was just a case of two friends goofing off on the set.
I wonder how he manages to find stuff like this and then respond directly in the comments. Guess hashtags really work well for him. Last year, he also shut down rumours that he didn’t want to film a series with Ren Min and wanted her removed as the heroine. Supposedly, he wanted to do so because the movie Ten Years of Loving You they both worked on tanked in the box office. And since he allegedly didn’t want a repeat of that happening again, he wanted to avoid working with her. The actor nipped this rumour in the bud quickly, responding on the comments section with a “no, I didn’t!“.
A Lawsuit and a Warning
Meanwhile, Zhao Lusi Studio has just announced that lawsuits have been filed against certain accounts for their defamatory remarks against the actress is the latest development to the story. The warning they issued in their statement which also names specific yxh or ying xiao hao (营销号) – basically marketing accounts whose remarks they say negatively impacted her reputation. Unless they too would like to find themselves on the receiving end of a lawsuit, Zhao Lusi Studio demanded they cease to publish falsehoods about her. No surprises that the blogger Ding Yuxi responded to and who put up the clip originally questioning her “true nature” is also on the sh*t list.
