Despite a promising start, Wang Churan’s (王楚然) career hit a stumbling block after starring in Fireworks of My Heart <我的人間煙火> with costar-turned-rumored boyfriend Yang Yang (楊洋). The negative publicity surrounding their relationship has allegedly decreased Yang Yang’s fan base as well, which prompted the actor to want to break up.
Netizens were also dissatisfied over Wang Churan’s character in Fireworks of My Heart for being senseless and medically unprofessional. Anti-fans raised the heat and further criticized the actress’ acting skills, indifference to criticism, and diva attitude.
Seeing Wang Churan’s deteriorating image and its negative impact on his own career, Yang Yang allegedly wanted to call it quits. However, Wang Churan reportedly refused to break up and threatened Yang Yang with the couple’s intimate photos.
Although her management agency has attempted to help “clean up” her image, Wang Churan allegedly remained stubborn and continued to be rude and reckless. At an event promoting drama Hidden Charm <柳舟記>, Wang Churan sat coolly beside second female lead, Liu Lingzi (劉令姿), and was criticized for being conceited in not attempting to converse at all.
Others defended the actress and called the rumors unwarranted and unfounded. Despite the negative press and her poor public image, Wang Churan still has more than 10 upcoming filming projects on hand and likely will continue to be frequently seen onscreen.
