Over 600 Stars Self Dissolve Their Own Production House in the Aftermath of the Chinese Tightening in Entertainment Industry

One of the unique to C-ent creations in the last two decades are the self-named “production houses”. When a star gets famous or ramps up in China, they usually leave their agency and basically create their own agency and call it a 工作室 or production house/studio. It’s a combo agency to sign contracts for dramas/movies and CFs with brands and if it gets big enough can finance their own projects and even sign on additional new stars to join. Almost ever famous C-, HK-, and TW-star working in China has their own production house but not anymore. This week a list was circulated showing over 600 (around 668) star production houses have been officially dissolved. It’s like shutting down a company. One reason is that production houses have been pinpointed by the government as being used to facilitate a host of star misconduct from yin/yang contracts to coordinating with fandoms. The dissolving of their own production houses includes big name stars such as Liu Shi Shi, Huang Xiaoming, Ariel Lin, Ruby Lin, Jin Boran, and many more. I foresee the TW-star contingent will likely not be working in Mainland China for the near future if not longer.

    • Its about messaging. The CCP government wants absolute control over messaging and want to curb reaction by general public as well. All form of autonomy is being destroyed. Taiwanese stars, Korean actors better stick to native countries. This is bad news.

  2. I guess soon there will be no more big star names the in C-ent. First is Zhao Wei and now reading about Nic Tse, Ruby, and Liu Shish too. China is on to something big such as eliminating their people with big bank accounts. Wondering is the money they’re after? What a pity all my favorite actors are in the list. Zhao Wei was already wipe out. Wonder what will happen to Nic, Ruby, and Shishi if they don’t comply. Will they be erase as Zhao Wei?

    • Nic Tse is not affected. He claims to be Chinese and is giving up his Canadian citizenship. His new movie is doing well. Nic will stay in China for a long time.

  3. The Chinese government is slowly returning to communism and it is time for the citizens to get rich before the elite in power take over the citizens as in the days of Mao.
