Popular actress and model ‘Angelababy’ underwent medical examination to prove that she has not had plastic surgery, leading to heated discussions on Chinese social media.

Chinese popular actress and model Yang Ying, who is better known as ‘Angelababy’, has been publicly pressured by a plastic surgeon to undergo medical tests to prove that her beauty is natural and not from plastic surgery.

On October 15, Angelababy had numerous tests at the Chinese Academy of Medical Science, including X-rays. The surgeon examined her forehead, eyes, nose, as well as the inside of her mouth. The examination happened in front of her lawyer, two notaries and some reporters and photographers, leading the pictures to appear on Weibo.

The pictures evoked heated debate amongst Weibo netizens. A similar issue became a much discussed topic when Chinese actress Fan Bingbing proved she did not have cosmetic surgery on her face.

The story behind Angelababy’s strange facial examination dates back to 2012, when Beijing beauty clinic Ruili accused her of cosmetically altering her face, saying that her plastic surgery failed and her chin was extremely unnatural.

Angelababy denied the accusation, and sued the clinic for RMB 500,000 (78,600 US$). Because the case has gone back and forth, a Beijing judge suggested to have her face examined by a medical professional to verify her case.

The surgeon reported that no cosmetic surgery had been performed on her face. There were no cut marks on her eyelids, nor around her eyes or mouth. None of her facial bones had any signs of incisions.

The announcement set off an instant firestorm of debate on social media, where the topic #angelababy undergoes a facial assessment# (#angelababy做面部鉴定#) rocketed up to the most discussed topic on Weibo, with Angelababy’s supporters and detractors going into fierce discussions.

One of her supporters, Weibo user Biling, said that the critics were just jealous of Angelababy’s beauty, and will always criticise her no matter what she does: “She did not have any cosmetic surgery. Appearance is bound to change from teenager to an adult. Everyone will look different.”

One criticizer, Miss Xiao Xiao, insists that Angelababy has undergone plastic surgery, and that she bribed the surgeons to say otherwise.

Even Angelababy’s husband, famous Chinese actor Huang Xiaoming, commented on social media, saying that his newlywed wife actually looks quite ugly without make up, and that he fully believed her beauty is natural.

    I also don’t believe Angela Baby didn’t have surgery.I studied her vids with her in it before and after plastic surgery. This vid is before plastics http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnZ-yUF_6Og&t=21s

    Look at her nose hole and the shape of her nose.Her nose is flatter on the base and the bridge. The shape of the eye are different then. She has no braces on and her face is not fat either. She doesn’t have an oval face as she does today. Today she has a smaller face and more of a chin. She had a botched chin/jaw surgery and chin implant and she quickly got it done.
    Her eyes are wider and longer as most asian women especially in south korea have from Plastic surgery.
    No on can mature to a complete different face. Those professional model photos which some idiots thought was her high school photos That is her model photos That is baby Her face is completely different between 17 and 18. She continue to get plastic and that is why her face keep changing and the plastic surgery also aged her. Look at her nose holes, see in the vid I provided for you it is round and her nose tip isn’t that of what you see today. Proof is overwhelming that she is plastic surgeons’ creation and yet she thinks the world is stupid to believe braces and maturity gave her a new face. she was age 17 in a profesional photo and you don’t change anymore at that stage My nose did not grow anymore after I was 12. I have a tall nose bridge but not a narrow tip like my 3 other siblings. I am chinese Angela can continue to deny but people know it is just bullshit………………. At first I thought maybe no true, but then I started to see it is ll plastic alternatiions…………….. She is 1/4 German. So what?? that is weak being only a quarter and her before photo show the world that her face was more asian than after plastic surgery. No one is born with all that refined features as we can see she done plastic surgery to get her current face .If she continue to do it more, then she will age even more.

    That doctor she hired and pay to do her examination??????? who paid for that if it isn’t her paying for it?? Famous Taiwanese plastic surgeon on oct 20 , 5 days after angela baby’s plastic surgeon tesified she didn’t have any plastics said her ala or alar wing had been tamed which mean she had platic surgery to make her nose more refined (narrow it). What a big fake she is. She cannot sing or act. She can use her fake face to do modeling.
    A lot of women in asia now have same kind of eyes, nose, and chin as miss angela baby yang.

    1. Nose bridge height changed.
    2 Nose alar wing refinement
    3 lips surgery
    4. eyelid surgery of more than one kind
    5 Chin
    There are speculation she had breast implant since she is so addicted to plastic surgery.
    but I think it can be possible that she is wearing fake silicon boob pads inside her push up bra to create that cleavage when u see her wearing long cut tops/dresses.

    I had brace before and it just fix my crooked teeth, it didn’t elongated my chin and give me a “V” shape chin… My brother and sister also had braces, it didn’t alter their looks in any way.
    Most people don’t believe that doctor saying Baby didn’t have surgery.
    Just keep looking at her different facial transformation…………………………..
    How she explain about that obvious fake chin (botched job) and she quickly got it fixed

    I hate to say it but I don’t find her being the best looking even after plastic surgery.
    Nowadays asia is filled with women having that type of wide set eyes, fake noses, fake chins, and face facial shape (due to facial bone surgery and implants). The upper eyelids got lifted to give her that wide eye look.

    Her face changed so many times…………… I have never met one person that matured to a completely different face.

    I believe she didn’t have plastic surgery because Angelababy had braces which made a big change to her ,my friend had braces and she have a big change too ,the whole sculpture of her face changed and her lips were smaller.Angelababy also lost some weight while she was modelling so that might effected her.

Dutch Vlogger Discovers Her Boyfriend’s Photo on a Chinese TV Drama

Dutch vlogger Rianne Meijer was surprised to discover her boyfriend being somebody else’s lover in this Chinese television drama.

Published

The Dutch influencer Rianne Meijer has gone viral in the Netherlands and on Chinese social media after she posted a TikTok video in which she shared the discovery of her boyfriend’s photo in a Chinese TV drama.

“Remember this picture? This is a picture that I posted with my boyfriend a while ago,” Rianne says in the TikTok video, then showing a scene in Chinese TV drama in which a photoshopped photo of Rianne’s boyfriend is featured.

Although Rianne stood next to her boyfriend in the original photo, her face was replaced in the photoshopped edition featured on the Chinese TV drama.

“They look good together, it’s fine!” Rianne jokingly responded to the scene.

Rianne Meijer is an online influencer and YouTuber with some 1.5 million fans on her Instagram. She is known for often posting funny videos and photos, sometimes together with her boyfriend Roy.

The scene featuring Roy’s photo comes from the Chinese TV drama Summer Again (薄荷之夏), which premiered on iQiyi in the summer of 2021.

The scene shows a lady named Mi Ya (played by actress Li Borong 李柏蓉) talking about her relationship with a man named ‘Andre.’

On the Chinese social media site Weibo, many netizens found the incident “embarrassing” and did not understand why the staff would just steal someone’s portrait: “Couldn’t the production team even find a foreign guy to take a picture?”

Others also thought the incident was very funny: “This is the reality of our global village. You’d think nobody would find out, but it’s really not so secret.”

According to Rianne’s most recent Tiktok post update, the show’s production staff has since sent her an apology. She also writes it’s “all good,” adding: “They are so sweet and this gave us a good laugh.”

Chinese Musician Song Dongye Canceled (Again) after Complaining about China’s Cancel Culture

Song Dongye was shut down by Weibo after airing his grievances at being shut out from China’s entertainment circles.

Published

on

Five years after being caught with drugs, Chinese singer Song Dongye went on Weibo to share his grievances on still being ‘canceled’ and asking for another chance to restart his career. Instead, he got criticized and blocked.

Chinese folk singer Song Dongye (宋冬野) has become a major topic on Chinese social media site Weibo this week after he posted a lengthy statement on his account airing his grievances regarding how he was shut out from China’s entertainment world after being caught with drugs.

In Song’s Weibo post of October 11 titled “I Need to Say Something” (“我需要说一些话”), the singer complained that one of his performances was canceled and that he has not been able to perform since he was detained for drug use five years ago.

The Beijing singer was scheduled to hold a concert in Chengdu on October 16th, but local authorities eventually canceled the show after receiving reports about Song being a drug addict.

According to Song, it is not the first time that one of his concerts is suddenly canceled for no apparent reason. In his post, the Beijing artist shared how disappointed he is that yet another performance was called off, even though it was previously approved and was organized in compliance with all strict regulations.

It seems that Song Dongye just cannot get rid of his tainted reputation.

Song Dongye

The 34-year-old Song Dongye started his career as a musician in 2009 and signed with the Modern Sky record label in 2012. One of his biggest hits is the 2013 song ‘Miss Dong’ (董小姐) (link), after which Song’s career further flourished.

Things went sour in 2016, when Song was arrested for smoking marijuana in Beijing after someone allegedly tipped off the police. Not long after news on his arrest made the rounds, Song himself posted a statement on his Weibo account on October 25th of 2016, apologizing to everyone for violating the law and promising to better himself.

Song is not the first Chinese celebrity to have been caught with drugs. There is an entire list of celebrities who were caught doing drugs, especially in the 2014-2016 years – including names such as Jaycee Chan, Kai Ko, and Zhang Mo.

In Song’s most recent Weibo post, the solo artist explains how his former drug abuse deeply affected him and his family, and that he has never touched drugs again since his ten-day prison sentence five years ago in 2016.

Song Donye’s lengthy Weibo post of October 11, in which he shared his grievances regarding still being ‘canceled’ five years after being arrested for drug use.

Despite the fact that Song complied with court orders and became an anti-drug advocate, he apparently is still not able to perform – even though the prescribed three-year ban on performing (in accordance with regulations provided by the Ministry of Culture) has officially ended two years ago.

The musician writes that he feels wronged. As a former drug abuser, he feels it was right for him to be punished, but he also says that drug users are actually the victims, claiming that drug trafficking is the real crime. Song argues that it is very difficult to be in the entertainment industry and that it is not easy to say no to drugs when you are down, depressed, and pressured.

In his Weibo post, the artist actually suggests he has been victimized in two ways: firstly, as a depressed artist lured into taking drugs, and second, as a canceled celebrity who keeps on being shut out from China’s entertainment circles.

“I can’t understand it, I’m confused,” Song writes: “I’ve violated the law, but I’ve been punished! I’ve been detained and then I also received five years of verbal abuse! I’ve been educated! I understand! I never messed up again! I got up again, and I changed! I became a better person! Is that still not enough for me to be able to make a living? Why? I’m not doing anything but playing some small offline gigs in order to get by! I’m just a singer-songwriter! What else do you want me to do? (..) Shouldn’t society give people who have broken the law another chance?”

Song concludes his post by saying that, regardless of the challenges he is facing, he will not give up on his work.

Song’s Post Backfires

Soon after Song Dongye posted his short essay on Weibo, thousands of reactions started flooding in. Many netizens did not feel sorry for the artist, but instead blamed him for “playing the victim.”

The issue triggered a major discussion on Chinese social media on whether or not artists with a bad reputation should be allowed back into the limelight.

A recent article by What’s on Weibo on 25 ‘tainted celebrities’ in China (25 ‘Tainted Celebrities’: What Happens When Chinese Entertainers Get Canceled?) shows that Chinese entertainers who previously got ‘canceled’ generally do not return to the big stage, either because they have simply fallen out of favor with most people or because they are being shunned and sidelined in the entertainment industry (or a combination of both).

Many people felt that Song Dongye was being a hypocrite, not just because they felt he was excusing his former drug use by saying drug traffickers are the real offenders, but also because Song allegedly did do multiple commercial shows over the past five years and has been actively setting up new businesses since his 2016 arrest.

For official media accounts, in the meantime, this apparently seemed to be a good moment to highlight their anti-drug informational posts.

State newspaper People’s Daily posted a series of photographs on October 12th featuring police officers who got injured while doing their work combating drug trafficking and drug use, stating that over thirty staff members of the law enforcement against drugs were killed since 2017.

The post’s message was clear: these Chinese officers in drug law enforcement were unable to get a second chance in life – why would Song, as a drug abuser, be allowed to get another chance to restart his career as a performer?

That idea resonated with many, who wrote: “We should have a zero-tolerance policy [towards drugs]. We can’t ever revive these police officers!”

Another image circulated on social media with the tagline “taking drugs and selling drugs is the same crime,” showing a musician offering money for drugs and a law enforcement officer being shot on the job (image below).

On that same day, Song’s Weibo account was temporarily suspended. The hashtag “Song Dongye’s Weibo Suspended” (#宋冬野微博被禁言#) received over 620 million views in the days following the ban.

Many people on Weibo share the view that those who chose to take illegal drugs for their own pleasure can never be a public figure again, earning money from commercial appearances.

Others wrote that Song should have never posted his essay at all since it only caused him to be labeled as a ‘tainted celebrity’ again, even though many people had already forgotten about his former drug use. They think that Song’s real problem hindering his future career now is not his 2016 offense, but his 2021 Weibo post.

Song Dongye’s post did not just affect him, it indirectly also affected other Chinese ‘tainted celebrities.’

A planned concert by Chinese singer Li Daimo (李代沫), a previous contestant of The Voice of China (中国好声音), was also canceled this week following the Song Dongye controversy.

Li Daimo continued his music career after his 2014 drug offense.

Li Daimo was arrested in 2014 for possession of drugs and was later sentenced to a fine and nine months in prison. After being released from prison, Li resumed his music career. Although his tainted past was still sometimes discussed on social media, he was one of the few artists who seemed to have made some sort of a comeback to the entertainment industry after such a major controversy.

The Song Dongye situation, however, also made people (and authorities) reflect on Li’s current career.

Over the past year, Chinese celebrities have become a target of authorities and state media have consistently been reporting on the importance of Chinese stars setting a good example for their fans.

But amid all controversy, there are also people who come to Song’s defense: “If an artist has been punished for three years, we should give people the opportunity to reappear. It might [even] be more beneficial to the anti-drug campaign.”

“I really like his songs,” one person wrote about Song: “But he did drugs, and I can’t forgive him for that.”

At this time, it is not clear when or if Song Dongye will be allowed to post on his Weibo account again. Although his Weibo page is still there, it currently says: “This account has temporarily been suspended for violating Weibo guidelines.” It is not clarified which specific guidelines Song violated with his post.
