It has been some challenging times for Xiao Zhan (肖战) during the past two months. Since the AO3 scandal, Xiao Zhan has kept a very low profile. From time to time, his name would get dragged into ridiculous rumors. He’s had to deal with a few legal matters due to netizens impersonating him and trying to defame him further. In the last few weeks, he started posting his artwork on Weibo and Oasis accounts, much to the delight of his fans, “xiao fei xias”.
