'Zhong Wu Yen' Has Less Sympathetic Response, Cheryl Yang Still Supports Ratings

Ratings of Ming Dao and Cheryl Yang's "Zhong Wu Yen" (TTV/SETTV) dropped compared to its first week, dropping from 2.70 to 2.16 and losing 210,000 fans. Although they still topped the ratings chart as number one, but "Summer's Desire" at second place is following closely with ratings of 1.83. "Zhong Wu Yen"s popularity didn't meet expectation. In the past, TTV/SETTV's "My Queen" and "Fated to Love You" are hit discussions among netizens. But "Zhong Wu Yen" cannot create this wave on the internet. Besides using old story points and rigid characters, the birthmark on female lead's face is said to be too ugly, plus there aren't too many people out there that share the same experience. The drama cannot create a sympathetic response from most viewers, because it's not a common phenomenon like "marital underdog" and "pregnancy before marriage" etc, which are easier to move fans.

But yesterday Ming Dao, Cheryl Yang, and Chris Wu Kang Ren still hold a celebration event for the drama. The crew even prepared Chinese herb tea to help them relieve summer heat. Ming Dao and Chris Wu are heartache at Cheryl, who has to film under the sun, so they provided a special massage service for her.
