Controversial actress Zheng Shuang, best known for her roles in Meteor Shower, Mural and Love O2O, has been condemned and banned, in writing, from future onscreen appearances by television and film regulator NRTA (formerly SARFT). The actress has been making headlines over the past few days for the use of surrogacy in the US (China has a de facto ban on all forms of surrogacy) and allegedly planning to abandon her children, who are currently in the US with her ex-husband.
The regulators have their own double standards when it comes to blacklisting artists, though this is the first time they have published an official editorial. Her upcoming dramas A Chinese Ghost Story (opposite Hou Minghao) and Masked probably won’t be able to broadcast unless they use AI to replace the actress, much like what The Message and The Glorious Era did after Zhao Lixin was quietly blacklisted.
A flashback to one of my favorite photoshoot series, the Sohu Tribute series that has celebrities cosplaying various famous characters. I still remember totally falling in love with Yang Yang’s twirl here.
