It was bittersweet for “The Untamed” (陈情令) cast and fans this past weekend as the “farewell” concerts took place in Nanjing. Most of the cast plus guest performers were invited on November 1 and November 2 to bid farewell to the series one last time in the “National Style Concerts”. Unfortunately, Xuan Lu (宣璐), who plays, “Jiang Yanli” (江厌离), or more warmly known as “Shijie” (师姐) to fans, was absent from both concerts as she was attending Tencent’s “Super Nova Games 2019”.
Even though Xuan Lu couldn’t make it to the concerts, her spirit was still with her “Chen Qing Ling” family. As it was a live broadcast, fans noticed Xuan Lu was crying uncontrollably when the theme song, “Wu Ji” (无羁), from “The Untamed” (陈情令) OST was playing during the Super Nova Games.

Xuan Lu missed the “National Style Concert in Nanjing” because it clashed with her attendance at the Super Nova Games. When this was brought up at the Super Nova Games, she responded, “Filming during that summer and what aired during this summer are both beautiful memories of mine. I hope their performances on stage will be very good. As for everyone’s friendship, the days ahead of us are very long.”

However, fans were still upset that Xuan Lu was unable to bid farewell with the cast in Nanjing. It was understandable since the schedules clashed, but fans asked her why she wasn’t at the Thailand fan meeting. She candidly responded, “I don’t know either.” with a crying emoji. Fans left comments saying, “Shijie wasn’t invited to the concert once.”, “What happened to both management companies?”, “Because she isn’t their own artist?” There were also fans who consoled Xuan Lu saying, “Pretty jiejie, don’t cry.”, “Yunmeng Jiang Shi, Jiang Yanli, farewell.”
