C-actor Peng Guan Ying Finishes Re-shoots for The Golden Hairpin as Yang Zi Adds the Drama to Her Agency Promos for 2024

It’s new year with good news for beleaguered C-drama The Golden Hairpin. After countless fits and starts and various actors attached to the re-shoot, the final contender Peng Guan Yin has reportedly finished his re-shoots and the drama is headed to post-production. This is the S-level drama starring Wu Yi Fan and Yang Zi that went into limbo after his scandal and arrest for sexual assault. The drama was fully finished filming and too much money sunk in to just never air so the production decided to find a new male lead to re-shoot as much as possible and also AI his face into the farther away scenes. The original replacement was Lin Geng Xin who actually re-shot a few days worth before leaving the production. I feel like this drama is a win-win, if it’s good after re-shoots then the replacement male lead enjoys the credit, if it sucks no one will blame him since there was very little to work with. Yang Zi has added this drama and her female lead character to her agency’s promos for 2024 in another sign that it will for sure air now.
