M.I.C. Tan Jianci, Xiao Shunyao sign acting deals with Wu Xiubo

Weird out by how brother-like the M.I.C. boys were, Wu Xiubo signed Tan Jianci and Xiao Shunyao on the spot to play his sons.

Wu Xiubo was such a big fan of his family in The Advisor’s Alliance that he signed management deals with all the main male characters.  That’s right, in addition to Wang Dong (who plays his brother and who you might remember opposite Dilraba in Diamond Lover),   Wu Xiubo’s two sons in the series –  M.I.C. boyband’s Tan Jianci and Xiao Shunyao- now have acting management deals!  Don’t worry, they’re still managed by Taihe music-wise.

During the press conference for the drama on June 8th, Wu Xiubo said that they had looked at many actors for the role of the brothers, but none of them had chemistry with each other.  Watching Jianci and Yaoyao eat before their audition, Wu Xiubo  was  struck by how close they were.  “Even by looking from the side, the way they ate and interacted with each other were so much like real brothers. I thought it was so strange,” Wu said.     He then gave them a script to read and hired them on the spot.  So happy to know that M.I.C. still loves each other (especially given the recent Top Combine fallout). 

Following playing Sima Zhao,   Jianci stars as the Emperor to the Sima family,  Cao Pi , in  Tangren’s new Three Kingdoms drama.  Meanwhile, post his Sima Shi gig,  Yaoyao  is currently filming an idol drama with Fan Shiqi.

Congrats, boys! Now please go record your group album already. IT’S BEEN FIVE YEARS.

A kiss for you, a kiss for you, a kiss for all my sons!
