The cancel machine in C-ent is way more methodical and linear than in other Asian entertainments, if an actor or actress is deemed to have committed a transgression of moral turpitude and beyond (i.e. actual crimes) then it’s all the same consequence – complete erasure. C-actor Deng Lun went from flying high to cancelled this past March 2022 after it was revealed him and his agency was investigate for underreporting his taxable income and he was levied a hefty owed tax with penalty. This week C-ent discovered a recently filed lawsuit by streaming platform iQiyi against Deng Lun and his agency for damages stemming from the time traveling period C-drama The Night Wanderer with Ni Ni. It finished filming in late 2021 and was slated for an end of 2022 airing but with Deng Lun’s scandal it was assumed the drama would be shelved. Now it appears iQiyi is striking the first attack in suing for damages assuming (or knowing) The Night Wanderer is DOA. That’s such a shame, the drama looks EPIC, so gorgeous in visuals with Deng Lun as a 1930’s era lawyer in Republican era China time traveling at night to meet up and romance 2016 modern era architect played by Ni Ni.
