Li Yuchun is alive and well, naturally

A story claiming singer Li Yuchun (李宇春) died after a failed plastic surgery is fake.

The rumor started on China’s microblogging platforms on Monday and swiftly spread through cyberspace.

The 2005 Super Girl (超级女声) champion’s father was very angry, saying, “My daughter is super well and sound. She has never had plastic surgery!”

Yuchun, aka Chris Lee, was in Beijing attending a film festival on Monday.

The father asked Yuchun’s management company to find out who started the terrible rumor.

The fabricated news is believed to be an adaptation of the sad original story about Wang Bei (王贝), Chris’ fellow contestant in the 2005 singing competition, who tragically died while undergoing plastic surgery in 2010.



Vincent zhao calls donnie yen "scene hog"

The Donnie Yen Chi Tan produced and action directed film DUT SHU SUN FUN (SPECIAL IDENTITY) has fallen into a dispute with one of the leads Vincent Zhao Wenzhou since its production start. Both sides recently kept issuing statements, which led to continuous outside speculations. Two days ago Zhao Wenzhou in a Mainland newspaper interview spoke for the first time about the real reason of leaving the production. He said that Yen Chi Tan without his permission changed the script, forcing him to leave. He called Yen a "scene hog" and urged Chinese film productions to strengthen script change specifications.

Zhao Wen Zhou said, "I want to say that the real arrogant one wasn't me but Yen Chi Tan. Because I could fight with Yen Chi Tan in the film, I was especially excited. This was also the point that drove me to agree to perform, I even included this scene in the contract. If the script was changed, it must have my permission." Yet the new script removed many scenes.
