There have been talks about removing Taiwanese actor Kai Ko from Chinese movie Tiny Times 4 after his arrest for drug use. Things have been made worse when writer-director Guo Jingming was said to have secretly met 20-year-old Chinese actor Bai Jing Ting, a possible substitute for Kai’s character.
Jing Ting first starred in Chinese television series That Year, Time Flew and is as tall as Kai.
Jingming, who has not responded to this matter since Kai’s arrest, left a message on Weibo yesterday: “When Tiny Times 3 was released in cinemas, my mother and people from my hometown will bring their family members to watch it. I will call my mum and ask if they understood and liked the movie. Mum said, ‘They liked it.’ And I asked if she did too. She said, ‘As long as it’s your film, I will like it and it will be the best.’”
Thereafter, fans commented: “As long as it’s your film, I will like it!” but most who left comments had harsh remarks for Kai.
