After the success of the drama Three Lives Three Worlds, it is said that the value of Yang Mi’s company, Jay Walker, increased to 5 billion Yuan. (Given that the company was the main investor of the drama and a majority of the casts is from her company, it’s to be expected). This also put Yang Mi and the people in her company under the spotlight. Yang Mi signed Vengo Gao, Dilireba, Zhang Binbin, Zhang Yunlong, Yang Chengcheng, Li Xi Rui, and Huang Mengying back in 2014 and is now being praised for successfully promoting the her people into stardom.
In addition, Yang Mi also joined variety show The Coming of One as one of the main judges. It is a show that help discovers new talents and train them to be the new faces of idols.
Ali from Three Lives Three Worlds said on an interview that he was afraid of Yang Mi because she was strict with him on the set. Behind the scene, the two did not talk much. Later his parents came out and clarify that, before the shooting, Yang Mi and they agreed that she will keep her distance from Ali in order to not interfere with his emotions and acting. Someone also pointed out that in other shootings, Yang Mi is actually fond of little Ali and joke with him a lot.
Now that Three Lives Three Worlds ended, everyone has turned their attention to Yang Mi’s new drama Legend of Fuyao and been speculating who she will be paired up with. Actor Jerry Yan from Meteor Garden and Zhang Ruo Yun from Sparrow are strong contenders.
If you’re not getting a Yang Mi overload yet, here’s another one. On March 12th, Yang Mi’s weibo posted an rated post that shocked her fans. Not long after, the post got pulled and her company responded that her account got hack and that it’s not her.
