Chinese actress, Bambi Zhu (祝绪丹), gained a lot of recognition starring as one of the female leads, “Zhou Zhiruo” (周芷若) in “Heavenly Sword Dragon Slaying Saber” (倚天屠龙记). The series is adapted from the novel of the same name and has been remade a few times already. Super Junior’s Kim Hee Chul is particularly fond of the 2019 drama adaptation and the 1993 movie version, starring Jet Li, and Chingmy Yau, his goddess.
Kim Hee Chul started getting hooked on the series at the end of June. He would often post on Instagram of him watching it on TV and has expressed admiration for Bambi Zhu on multiple occasions. On a Weibo post from July, he even asked if Bambi Zhu and him looked alike.
In the September 1st episode of Korean variety show, “My Little Old Boy”, he gets giddy introducing the series to his friend and even tells him, “That’s your sister-in-law”. When Kim Hee Chul’s mother sees this, she says, “Really hope he gets married soon.”, eliciting laughter from everyone in the studio.
What was inconceivable was that after the episode aired, Bambi Zhu replied to Kim Hee Chul’s Weibo post asking if they looked alike on September 2nd. Bambi Zhu responded, “Hahaha, don’t look alike. Thank you for liking “Heavenly Sword Dragon Slaying Saber”. You like Zhou Zhiruo. I’ll tell her for you.” After fans saw Bambi Zhu’s response, they quickly left comments on Kim Hee Chul’s Weibo and IG posts to tell him. Will Kim Hee Chul respond back to Bambi Zhu?
