Ever since Li Xian (李现) became everyone’s “July boyfriend” with “Go Go Squid!” (亲爱的, 热爱的), he has gained a huge amount of fans. Because of his new found popularity, he is now unfortunately exposed to a new group of rabid fans and the sasaeng fan culture. Li Xian had already addressed the issue of sasaeng fans intruding with his lifestyle on a few occasions already.
It seems these sasaeng fans didn’t get the hint because a netizen shared a video of someone’s “encounter” with Li Xian on the eve of his birthday. However, Li Xian didn’t agree with her description of their “encounter.” This person posted, “A passerby encountered Xian ge while eating dinner. Ah ah ah ah ah. I also want to encounter.” and tagged Li Xian.
This was probably a bad move because Li Xian responded back to her saying, “Encounter? Know where I am filming and the hotel I’m staying at, following my car all the way to the place where I had dinner. This is called encountering?”
The post got over 4,000 comments chastising the content of the video. The uploader of the video claims she saw someone posting the video on Weibo and then asked her for it. She expressed she received a lot of abusive private messages and that she can’t even go into Weibo to delete the post. She said, “Really didn’t know it was posted by a sasaeng fan. I am innocent. Don’t leave anymore comments. I can’t get into my computer. I am really an ally.”
After she was able to delete the video, she alerted everyone on Weibo and claimed she was innocent once again. She said she can’t find the original video owner anymore and that she was still getting a lot of private messages yelling at her. She also professed her love for Li Xian.
Let’s just wish Li Xian a Happy 28th Birthday as it’s October 19th in his neck of the woods.
