It’s been much too quiet in entertainment news lately so either a real scandal is going to arrive or a manufactured one. Turns on it’s the latter but the C-media jumped on this one as fast as a ravenous dog on a bone. Within hours after a random weibo poster claimed that Liu Shi Shi cheated on her boyfriend Nicky Wu with her movie costar Joseph Chang after seeing them on a date in Japan, this story went from one unsubstantiated allegation to full blown hysteria thanks to the C-media actually running the “scandal”.
There are no pictures to back up the assertion while the truth of the matter is Shi Shi and Joseph were in Japan earlier this year for their movie which included dating scenes filmed on the street. Shi Shi’s agency immediately asked the reporters why this ridiculous story is even being bandied about while Joseph’s manager denied that Joseph went on dates with Shi Shi and explained that he’s not even that close to her. Which I totally believe, anyone watching the movie, BTS, and their interactions at promotional events shows at most cordial professionalism between them.
There has been some murmurings that things are not all well in Nicky-Shi Shi land which probably explains why even the mere unsubstantiated allegation that she’s cheating on him would get the C-media in a tizzy. It’s well known that Nicky and Shi Shi’s respective intense fandoms do not like the significant others. Nicky’s fans think Shi Shi fans are immature and Shi Shi is too young for Nicky, while Shi Shi fans have their own heads up their asses and hate Nicky because, in their minds, he’s too old, too failed at love, too much of a media whore, you name it, Shi Shi fans think it of Nicky.
To add fuel to the fire, recently there was a fandom weibo smear campaign against Shi Shi and one particular Nicky fan upset at the Joseph cheating rumor and urging him to break up with such a bad girlfriend, and for whatever reason Nicky clicked “like” on that post. That got his fans thinking he’s really pissed at Shi Shi while her fans think she must have broken up with him. He rescinded the like and his manager explained he was reading posts and his hand slipped and pressed “like” accidentally. Both Shi Shi and Nicky have posted on weibo that they are fine and don’t understand why the public wants to insist they are having problems.
The weibo account that “broke” the cheating news has since been deactivated but this is what the scandalmonger wrote in the weibo post:
“Liu Shi Shi appears easygoing and warm but that’s just appearances. Underneath her ladylike demeanor she’s simply a slutty unfaithful woman, especially when her other half doesn’t pay as much attention to her then she acts up. She doesn’t care about giving Nicky Wu any face as she’s cheated on him with Joseph Chang. After dating Wu for a year, she’s chosen this time to rethink the relationship. These days 4th Prince has been doing whatever he wants, treating Shi Shi neither too warm nor too cold, and he’s even taking to pulls his hair back in a ponytail like a gay guy. Shi Shi has gotten annoyed with him and decided to poke back, Joseph Chang gives her the perfect opportunity.”
Looking for pictures of Shi Shi and Joseph one is sure to find lots of “incriminating” ones. Like this one above. Oh my god, Shi Shi is cheating on Nicky with Joseph! Look, they’re caught in the same car looking cozy!
Ooooops, looks like media be unable to differentiate movie from real life. Whaddya mean it was a picture from movie making? And Miura Haruma was in the back seat the whole time! This is one rumor mill that the media jumped on with zero basis, probably because it was a slow news week. Move on folks, nothing to see here, except perhaps a very blatant plant by the movie producers of Shi Shi-Joseph-Haruma’s thriller movie for a final ploy to resurrect a very slagging box office. Joseph is usually so low key and chill about life, he’s probably wondering how the heck he got in the middle of typical media and fandom fixation on Shi Shi-Nicky.
