Huang Junjie’s Agency Claps Back Amid ‘Fu Shan Hai’ Casting Controversy

"Huang Junjie Faces Netizen Backlash Over Possible Role in 'Fu Shan Hai'"

Recently, Cheng Yi kicked off filming for his newest costume drama “Fu Shan Hai” (赴山海). There’s a lot of anticipation given the male lead, but it seems there’s also controversy over Huang Junjie being spotted at the booting ceremony. Netizens guess that the 25-year-old actor may play the second male lead.

Huang Junjie has had a pretty good year, managing a strong comeback and rising to fame alongside co-star Xia Zhiguang in the BL-adapted series “The Spirealm.” Now that he’s in another high-profile drama, it seems a number of netizens are protesting this due to a previous controversy that saw him go on a sudden hiatus from showbiz in 2021. “Fu Shan Hai” was ultimately announced without Huang Junjie’s name in the roster, though it’s not clear what will happen to the actor and what role he’s supposed to play. Meanwhile, his agency states that online rumors claiming ‘Huang Junjie is a disreputable artist’ are baseless slander. They are also no longer going to respond on concerns about their artist’s personal life.
