Extreme Idol: Dilireba Hasn’t Rested in Four Years

It took Dilireba (迪丽热巴) only four years to win the heart of the masses. The 25-year-old Uyghur actress from Xinjiang is one of the top-earning idols in China, ranking 37th on 2017’s Forbes China Celebrity List and earning over 300 million yuan within four months of the year. With the earning power of over 100 million yuan per drama, Dilireba is a force we cannot miss.

But all of this success did not come easy. Dilireba hasn’t taken time off to rest in the four years since her debut. Working over 18 hours a day, Dilireba has been described as a harder worker than a housemaid.

Despite being one of the nation’s top idol actresses, Dilireba knows what it means to cherish all opportunities. After losing an important role a few years ago, Dilireba makes sure to treasure all the opportunities given to her. She would never complain about her work, and would silently drown herself with coffee to stay energized and awake. A source said Dilireba developed a habit of slapping herself in the face so she could stay awake. She is an idol with no baggage to carry, as evident in her courage to try out different challenges for the variety show Keep Running <奔跑吧>. Wong Cho-lam (王祖藍), who has worked with Dilireba on the show, has said that she is very well-behaved and polite.

Dilireba may have signed a lengthy, 15-year contract with Jay Walk Studios, but that never deterred her spirit in working hard. Dilireba has said that Yang Mi (杨幂), her boss and owner of Jay Walk Studios, is her main inspiration.

It’s been reported that Dilireba has an interest in establishing her own personal studio to more control over managing her activities. Yang Mi and Jay Walk Studios are supportive.

      @littlefish Same! I bumped into her when watching Three Life Three World and has loved her since!
      She’s very honest and has a goofy nature, a breath of fresh air. Kind of sad to hear she hasn’t had time to rest…
      I’ve noticed the hitting forehead action but thought it was to get herself to focus, instead of a consistent way to wake herself up :/

    She should take a break to help her with her performances. Not much of a difference in TKW and TFD. Then again, you don’t want to lose your popularity when there are new idols rising.

      @tiffany haven’t seen TKW but I think most importantly is the role, pick the right role is what she should be doing, only then she can do better in acting.

    Definitely a good looking asian or should I say mixed. When I first saw her in a chinese series that I stumpled upon on utube I thought she’s really cute and interesting looking didn’t know she was mixed until I goggled a bit. She acts pretty ok to me too so not at all surprised she’s in demand at the moment.

        No,Uyghurs are mixed which is why they have a Eurasian look versus other Chinese.

        Uyghurs are NOT mixed. They are their own ethnicity. Just because they look Eurasian, that doesn’t mean they are mixed.

        No she is mixed which is why she has a Eurasian look. No full blooded Chinese/Asian can have that look. I have 2 friends who both had features like that but both claimed to be Asian but then later found out they had European blood too.

        From what I know, Uyghurs ARE mixed! You believe everything you read on Wikipedia? I can tell you that I am into DNA testing and all and even I am heavily mixed and did not realize it. You can identify as being a certain ethnicity but when it comes down what you truly are, you will be astonished and surprised. Even looking at her face, you can tell she is mixed. I have a friend who identifies as Vietnamese but one look at my friend, everyone can tell she is mixed.

        You’re right. I was mistaken. Would be interesting to know how many people are actually ‘pure’.

        Thanks and I have been into ancestry DNA testing and stuff lately as it interested me a lot after I did my own. Not many are pure but I have seen a number people who claim to be Han Chinese and some shared their results and some were 97% Chinese, one was 82% Chinese but mixed with Korean Mongolian,etc.. This other guy who claimed to Vietnamese but ended up being 53% Chinese. I have not seen anyone who is actually pure but this one girl said she was 99.9% han Chinese which is rare. Most of us are mixed one way or another. I was pretty mixed myself which sort of shocked me.

        @hetieshou 🙂 I’m Vietnamese, and everyone thinks I’m Chinese lol. And I can’t blame them as I knew my grandfather’s side came from China. With so much migration, no one is truely pure. After all we are all decendants from African lol!

        I am Vietnamese with Chinese ancestry too. I can speak both too so most think I am Chinese too. Yes most of us are not pure,but Chinese have a higher chance of being pure than Vietnamese since Vietnamese is very mixed. If the DNA tests are correct, then I have lots of other blood besides Chinese and Vietnamese.

        Some people believe that Vietnam was part of China a long time ago & I agree with that. I speak both languages & I can see the strong connection of the two languages. When one is learning both languages – they do enhance each other and they are much easier & faster to learn them. Almost all the Vietnamese’s last names out there – we also have them in Chinese last names. So I’m not surprise about the Vietnamese guy you mentioned above.

        @dramas4me Viet Nam WAS a part of China for a long time. That’s not an opinion. It’s a fact. Hence, you’re right that a lot people in Viet Nam are both and have Chinese and Vietnamese names. Japan and French also occupied/ruled Viet Nam at one point by the way. One of reasons why we love baguettes so much, lol.

        @littlefish I’ve never heard Asians are African descendents. Interesting. Source? I’ve read that there are Asians occupying Africa due to slavery, black market human trafficking, sell “little piglet” back in the days. There were many Chinese slavery in US as well back in the days. African-Americans were not the only slave labour. Funny how only BLM hops on the past but hardly anyone recognize or peep up about Chinese slaves. *shrugs*

        Yup Vietnam was a part of China a very very long time ago. A number of the early rulers were Chinese descendants too. Vietnam is influenced by France too. Even some of the food and vocabulary words were from French too. My great aunt married a French man too. No wonder I feel like I have a connection to France. I took French for years too and aced it. I wonder if it is due to the French influence? Hm….

        Well according to the very very very ancient times, we all originated from Africa at one point.

        No Vietnam was a part of China back in the days. I speak both languages too. I speak Mandarin though. Which dialect do you speak? They have some similarities but lots of differences too. Yes, I usually translate the names but some names like Truong/Cheung/Zhang is strictly a Chinese surname which is my grandmother’s last name. That Chinese Vietnamese guy is named Micheal Luong. You can view his DNA results video on YouTube. He is very funny when he found out he was mostly Chinese. But even one look at him and you can tell he is more Chinese as he does not really look Vietnamese.

        I can speak Mandarin because I attended Chinese & Vietnamese schools in Vietnam. I also speak Cantonese & Hainan. My father migrated to Vietnam from Hainan Island, China when he was nine years old. My mother was Chinese, but she was born in Vietnam. Many people there think that they are “pure” Vietnamese and they often prejudice against people like me. 🙁

        @dramas4me
        Thanks for info about you. I know some Cantonese too but can understand it better than I can speak it. Who is prejudice against you? You mean the people in China? I wonder why Chinese are bias against Vietnamese and other southeast Asians? I find that sad how some Chinese have the superiority complex towards others? I guess it is similar to people from HK and Taiwan being bias against mainlanders. Very sad that you can even discriminate against your own ethnicity so why should we be shocked that they discriminate against other ethnicities.

        I have met some Chinese who think they are superior to Vietnamese. Most think I am mostly Chinese at first glance and seem like they are disappointed when I say I am Vietnamese with some Chinese ancestry. I actually just argued with this one racist Chinese girl on Quora. She looked down on Vietnamese and called me ugly and that I do not look Chinese( I actually posted my photo on there to respond to a question) because I would actually look pretty if I was Chinese. I was so insulted because you do not need to be or look Chinese to be pretty. Not all Chinese girls are pretty too. I hope I never run into another racist person like that.

        I’m sorry to hear about what happened to you. No, I experienced the opposite of you. Actually Vietnamese people often prejudiced against people like me. It happened to my family and my friends also. Many of them are angry because of the history between China and Vietnam and we have nothing to do with it, so I think it’s unfair for them to use it against us. There are good and bad people in every ethnicity and nationalities. The world will be a much nicer place if we all use that as our guideline and not judging people because where they came from, the color of their skin or someone else’s actions.

        @dramas4me
        Thanks for sharing your experiences with me am I also very sorry to hear that that happened to you too. May I ask if this happened in Vietnam or in another country? If it happened in Vietnam then I can understand and feel bad for you. I have never been to Vietnam so have only heard stories. One of my uncles hates Chinese to the bone which I find extremely sad. I know it is because of the bad history between China and Vietnam. However, I still find it very bad and sad. Luckily my late parents were not like that, especially my mom as she knows one of her grandparents was Chinese. You know the saying, you should not let the bitterness and grievances of the past generations pass onto the later descendants. It is not your fault or any Chinese person’s fault but what is more sad is some may have Chinese ancestry but yet hate Chinese. It is like hating yourself without even realizing it. I argued with many extremist Vietnamese who hate Chinese to the core online lately. Thank goodness I do not know them in person or lots of problems would occur. No wonder I cannot get along with many Vietnamese people. They said I do not know about these issues with China and Vietnam being American born and raised which is not true because I do. I just choose not to spread hate like them. One of my main reasons I did my DNA tests was to see if I had Chinese ancestry like my mom said and I do. I wanted to confirm that so I do not hate like them since I will be hating a part of myself.

        I argued with that anti Chinese uncle of mine and was telling him that there are good and bad in every ethnicity. I had to give many examples of my Chinese relatives to convince him. I wonder when all of this hate will ever stop? Luckily, only some very extreme people are like that but some of us are not as we intermarry a lot. My sister in law is Chinese as well and my late parents were open as long as they are nice people.

        The tension between Chinese and Vietnamese truly reminds me of the tension between Chinese and Japanese. I was chatting with one of my Chinese friends and she said her parents will not approve of her marrying a a Japanese guy due to the bad blood between them. Once again, I find that sad that people cannot let bygones be bygones.

        At the end of the day, we are all people so why draw so many racial boundaries? Another sad thing is they are ok with Chinese from Singapore,Taiwan, HK,etc,. But they hate mainly mainland Chinese. So sad that even people of the same ethnicity can discriminate against each other and hate each other.

        Tis is what central Asia people look like. If you google Kazakhstanians, the look oriental with European features , sharp noses, big eyes, sharp chin. I’d say Kazakhstanians look closer to Chinese than the Uyghurs but you will notice that the central Asian people also look Turkish like with the long noses. They look mix, even their hair is reddish brown. I got to say they r a group of pretty darn looking people with the best features from oriental and westerns.

        You are right on the money on the Kazakhstanians as I once had a classmate who was from Kazakhstan. We were all like where? haha LOL. had to goggle. We all thought she was mixed chinese or pure chinese as she speaks Mandarin very well and she looks chinese but it turned out she is pure Kazakhstanian. Her parents went to Shanghai or something so she was born there but then immigrated. I asked my Russian friend as well, she says some Russians depending on which part also have a bit of an asian look than russian look. lol….so confusing.

        @wm2017 Intermingling of various tribes and ethnic groups along China’s borders and invasions by nomads throughout history inevitably lead to intermarriages. Adding to the mix, colonies of Jews and Arabs settled in various Chinese cities during the eighth century.
        Check pictures of Vengo Gao who often costars with Dilraba. He claims to be pure Han Chinese. Being from Heilongjiang in north China, he probably had a Russian ancestor way back.

        Good post and well said and that was what I was trying to say. You may claim to be one thing but your actual blood and ancestry is a different story. Also, if people can see your face and you look mixed then you most likely are and if the look is prominent enough, then that foreign ancestor of yours is not as distant as you think. Vengo Gao is definitely mixed but my guess is he just does not know it. I bet if he did a DNA ancestry test, it would shock him as well. I can tell you I did some DNA tests recently and found out I am mixed quite a bit but except with Asian instead of any European blood. I actually had a very very distant Sardinian ancestor but he/ she is way too distant to have any affect on my looks and DNA.

        I know that and they look that way because they are mixed. I have a friend who identifies as Vietnamese but everyone can tell she is mixed just by looking at her since she has a Eurasian look. People always told me I look Asian mixed so I did my DNA test and found out how mixed I am but accept I am more mixed with Asian mostly. The genetic make up of the Uyghurs would be very interesting.
        Here is a link to a discussion about Uyghurs which I found interesting and may give more insight to the genetics of Uyghurs:

  5. Well, it’s pretty common for these young actresses to be working so much, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re improving. I think it was Zhao Liying who only took one day off last year or something, and both of them are only decent at acting (although I think Dilireba might be a little flatter in her expressions). They’re just trying to take advantage of their time in the spotlight… the c-entertainment industry isn’t looking for good acting, it’s looking for popular idols
