Rumors are saying that Dilireba (迪丽热巴) will be terminating her management contract with Jay Walk Studio, and fans are unanimously rejoicing.
The 27-year-old actress signed with Jay Walk Studio, which was co-founded by actress Yang Mi (嘉行传媒), in 2014. Dilireba shot to fame following her appearance in 2017’s Eternal Love <三生三世十里桃花>, and soon became one of China’s highest-paid and most popular actresses. She remains a very popular face for fashion magazines and beauty products.
However, despite her popularity and social media prominence, Dilireba admitted once on a program that she had not filmed a series in eight months. She also confessed that she had differences with her management team, and that was the reason why she had to turn down many role offers.
Eternal Love and Dream <三生三世枕上书>, which is currently airing, is Dilireba’s first television drama since 2018’s Sweet Dreams <一千零一夜>.
Fans had been very vocal about Jay Walk’s mistreatment towards Dilireba. Not only is Dilireba unable to choose her own projects, she is also tied to working with the same male costars, which are her Jay Walk label mates Vin Zhang (张彬彬), Vengo Gao (高伟光), and Wayne Liu (刘芮麟). Her most recent project with Vengo Gao—Eternal Love and Dream—is also critically panned.
