Wang Fei Fei responds with an official blog post on Weibo
I have been receiving a lot of weird messages and comments lately. Even though every time I see them I try not to care about it, these two days I didn’t think it was right to let it sit in my heart.
Some people said that there is no chance for me and Meng Jia to become ‘famous again’ with this programme [CFPLDJJ] because we’ve never been famous before. Sure! Since you said we won’t go big so be it. And since we are no longer famous than just let us be and don’t keep criticising, or you’ll get seen as a joke by others.
Also, some people said that we are “plastic sisters” (i.e. friends only on the outside for the TV show) and that in the entertainment industry there’s no such thing as genuine relationships. To that, I can only say that who you are determine how you see the world, and that some things don’t have to be showcased to the entire world for it to be considered precious enough. What is even more amusing is that some people have also said that this is just a variety show, and that it is more important to put up a show rather than to be too serious on stage. I want to say, that you are really underestimating this program too much. No one is just here to have fun, since the goal of this program is to create a “girl group” why can’t I be allowed to be serious about being in a girl group? I will not let myself be remembered on social media as a performer who is not fit for the stage. Our “Big Bowl Thick Noodles” stage is mine and Meng Jia’s first performance together since our disbandment [from Miss A] and I really cherish this opportunity. Whether or not I share a good relationship [with Meng Jia] is not for you to determine, I want it to be for me to determine!
Lastly, famous or not, like it or not, I am thankful for everyone’s support and attention. A grateful heart ❤️ #ListenToJieJieSpeak
