So this is wildly complicated and just mostly stupid. This week the hot C-drama of summer 2022 CF fandom of Love Between Fairy and Devil nearly caused a war between the respective fandoms of leads Dylan Wang and Yu Shu Xin (Esther Yu). There is a dedicated fandom of the drama CP that ships the leads together and are not fans of either star prior to this drama. This fandom reportedly was organizing events for November but got their events cancelled after Dylan’s agency said they did not have authority to hold such events per his ownership of his image and characters. The CP fans said it was due to Dylan’s next drama Forbidden Love about to air and the agency wanted to promote that CP with Chen Yu Qi (Yukee Chen).
The CP fandom also said that Dylan has not broken up with his rumored girlfriend outside the industry and it felt betrayed to be led otherwise and told that now when their services were not needed to hype up Fairy and Devil. Afterwards Dylan’s solo fan group said this was a smear, it never happened, and the so-called CF fan who spilled the tea was actually a fan of Yu Shu Xin who went deep undercover in the CP fandom and is using this to smear Dylan because their actress’ follow up drama Romance of the Little Forest with Zhang Bin Bin was not a hit so Yu Shu Xin needs to hold onto to Dylan and the popularity of Fairy and Devil to keep herself relevant until her next drama airs sometime in 2023 which is the next Chinese Paladin drama Sword and Fairy with Xu Kai. Then Yu Shu Xin’s fandom said this was not true and it was not one of their fans and it’s actually a Dylan Wang anti-fan stirring up all this trouble. And in the end, the Fairy and Devil CP fandom got really rocked by this and is still nursing its scars.
