    Aauhh. The fact that “the times spent with him became an unspeakable secret” worries me so much. I’m too invested in this show and otp already; if they don’t end up together, I’m going to explode.

    • carolies541 • 4 years ago

      Yes, Finally someone is asking about our poor Zai-Zai, haha! A-Wei Zhang is hospitalized because of his backbone problems (or something along that line, I can’t really remember the exact problem with him) and he’s unable to move freely for a few months as what the doctor advised thus his scenes were cut. It’s unfortunate for him and the show, I do miss him.

    awwee….poor A-wei! Hope he heals well and quick!
