C-actress Zheng Shuang Drops Double Shocker: Dating Hans Zhang and Admits Plastic Surgery

I went into this weekend’s press conference for the upcoming fantasy wuxia period C-drama Ancient Sword Fantasy to check out my boy Li Yi Feng in his first headlining role, and I left reeling because of Zheng Shuang. It wasn’t just me, apparently she was all anyone could talk about after the press conference and the C-media is going wild right now. Leading lady Yang Mi must be fuming to have her thunder stolen by the second female lead, but I was seriously applauding Zheng Shuang for her double disclosure. Normally press conferences are the usual canned questions about the drama with some personal questions tossed in though no one really expects the actors to answer truthfully. For 3 years now the C-media and fans have been speculating that Zheng Shuang and her Let’s Go Watch Meteor Shower co-star Hans Zhang went from reel-to-real since filming that drama. For those who don’t know, Meteor Shower is the C-drama adaptation of the manga Hana Yori Dango (Boys Before Flowers in Korea and Meteor Garden in Taiwan). Both have since starred in quite a few other dramas together but each time they were asked both just laughed it off and said they were just good friends and co-stars. I totally never bought that. So at the press conference today, Zheng Shuang was asked that question again, as well as the even more hotter topic du jour about her, which is that her face is totally and completely different and did she get plastic surgery. To everyone’s ever lasting shock – Zheng Shuang smiled and replied that she did get plastic surgery AND she is in fact dating Hans. Oh. My. God. Trust me when I say C-actresses have been confronted at press conferences about having a totally new face and flat out denied any plastic surgery with usual bullshit like the camera angles and losing weight (to name a few – Yang Mi, Yuan Shan Shan, Angelababy). If I was at that press conference I would have stood up and applauded her candor and balls, and then wept little happy tears to have confirmation that the cuteness that is the HanShuang couple is in fact a reality. Finally a pair of actors playing Domyouji/Makino get together in real life! She could have just admitted the plastic surgery without also admitting the dating so I’m assuming boyfriend Hans gave her the greenlight to go public. Hhhhmm, I wonder if a long term commitment is coming up soon? Whatever the reason, this is yet another happy addition to the legions of dating C-actors and actresses. 

The above two pictures are Zheng Shuang at the Ancient Sword Fantasy press conference, and her character official still for the drama. She plays a fox demon.

Above is a picture from when she starred in Let’s Go Watch the Meteor Shower with Hans Zhang. If you compare old her and new her, yeap, girlfriend’s got a brand new face. Entirely. And in this case, objectively I thought she looked cute before, but more sophisticated now. The surgeon that did her PS did a really good job though, so kudos on not looking like a frozen faced freak. As for the why, Zheng Shuang simply said that she wanted to look different and prettier, and that isn’t anything to be ashamed about. Amen to that. I have no problems with plastic surgery, for stars or regular folks. I simply find it lame for those who get it to deny it or if the plastic surgery is too much and poorly done and they end up looking freakish. To pay money and endure pain only to look worse? That’s like paying someone to punch you in the face. For Zheng Shuang, whatever makes her happy is fine with me though it will take me awhile to get used to her new face. Though in a weird bit of irony, folks are saying Zheng Shuang’s new face resembles old Yang Mi, before Yang Mi got herself a new face. LOL, I actually can see that.

And for those folks loving their chemistry and collaboration, they will be starring in the sequel to the hit drama SOP Queen called simply SOP Queen 2 and above is the official character still of Hans and Zheng Shuang for that drama. Title is easy to remember, right. And Zheng Shuang isn’t stupid to admit it now, this drama is scheduled to air next month in September. More power to her!

Last but not least, this couple was probably ready to go public at the same time, because just a day before the Ancient Sword Fantasy press conference, it happened to be Zheng Shuang’s 22nd birthday. Hans posted on his weibo this picture of them from the upcoming SOP sequel and wrote “How could your birthday not have me around? Happy birthday to the little fairy!” Awwwwwww.


C-actress Zheng Shuang Drops Double Shocker: Dating Hans Zhang and Admits Plastic Surgery — 17 Comments

  1. Yay! I didn’t finish all of Let’s Go watch the Meteor Shower, but those two are pretty much the only reason I stuck with it so long. Glad to see they really are together.

  2. Whoa. The change is a bit extreme. She wasn’t that bad looking and cutesy to begin with. At least with Yang Mi one can still recognize it’s Yang Mi. Not so sure I can say the same here.

  3. I don’t know. I mostly feel like ones natural born beauty is better. I thought she was cute and lovely just the way she was before. But PS is a personal choice and it doesn’t really matter what I think. In an industry where looks matter a lot, I can’t fault them for wanting to look prettier.

    She’s so young!!! Goodness – going under the knife at such a young age, the poor thing. well, I wish the happy couple well! I’m sure this will also help their upcoming drama a lot. 🙂

  4. I really give her props for admitting to PS. It was way too obvious, and while the results aren’t too plastic, I have to admit that my heart broke. She was so beautiful and angelic-looking before, and that was what made her stand out amongst the many Chinese actresses with pretty much the same cookie cutter features. I wish she never did it, but at least she has the guts to admit it.

    I’m happy they’re finally making things official, but we could all see it coming once he posted that on his weibo. They are adorable together and I wish them the very best.

  5. Awh. They’re so cute together. I was always rooting for them. Lol! But girl looked pretty before the plastic surgery. Proud she wasn’t afraid to deny her surgery though. Good luck in the future and to the happy couple.

  6. Ah so some eye surgery at least. She was pretty before, and at only 22 looks older than her age now. Hope she doesn’t need more surgical revisions.

    However they make a cute couple.

  7. I’ll admit I totally am dying to see YangMi’s face when ZS admits to her surgery, just to get a taste of how awesome YM used to be in my books…as a bona fide Actress. XD

    I still love her old face with her old nose better, this is more refined, but aging her and she looks unrecognizable. Of course I would’ve stood and applauded right beside you for her balls alone.

  8. Yay!! I really enjoyed their chemistry in LGWTMS. I think this couple had the best chemistry out of all the drama versions of Hana Yori Dango ever made. It was kinda obvious in the BTS that they really liked each other. Hope to hear more official good news from them soon.

  9. Oh yes, I remember checking out LGWTMS a while back, earlier this year. I didn’t watch it properly, but found the OTP had cute chemistry. So happy that they are dating!

    I totally did not recognise her in those first 2 pics above at the press conference. Usually, with PS, there are still recognisable features before and after, but here…. nope. True, she does look more sophisticated than before, but appears to have aged a lot(at least with the make up she wore at the press conference). She looked natural and cute before the PS. I don’t think she needed the PS to be honest.

    However, the character still you have of her in Ancient Sword Fantasy (3rd pic) is really pretty. I still think the first 2 pics of her at the press conference makes her look too old though.

  10. She looked very pretty before and she looks just as pretty now.
    I really applaud her for her honesty and bravery. This really made me want to watch her dramas.

  11. Is it wrong for me to ask in what part of her face did she get her PS?.. etc? I’m trying to compare the before and after pictures and can’t figure out what’s different to them..eyes bigger? Cheek lift? If someone could put a side by side picture of her that would be great! but if not, it’s okay.. its not important, I’m just curious (from a girl to another girl perspective)

    wow.. didnt know SOP is doing a sequel, guess we’ll get to see that soon.. I’m guessing its airing after Lan Ling Wang is over? Gosh that drama went by so quick 🙂

  12. awww those two!! I love them together! and good for her for admitting plastic surgery, she was fine before but it’s her decision.
