Posted at April 30, 2018

After more than a decade since Meteor Garden dominated our TV screens, actress Barbie Hsu confessed her honest thoughts towards playing her iconic role Shan Cai!

The Taiwanese star recalled hating the character on her Weibo account, “Yes, I admit, when I first got the role of Shan Cai, I told the director, ‘Shan Cai is such a terrible person! I hate her, I don’t know how to portray this role.’ The director talked to me for a long time, telling me that she was young and naive about love, and just an ordinary girl who was suddenly showered with love from two handsome guys, so it was unavoidable that she would act a little out of the ordinary…"

"In any case, I didn’t like Shan Cai halfway through filming, but I still tried my best to portray her in a way that would make audiences not hate her too much! Those days, the audience was very pure, so they let her off the hook easily," she continued and posted a throwback photo of the cast featuring F4, Teng Tang Jing and Chen Qing He. Perfectly understandable but we'll still love the show and Shan Cai no matter what.
