It is known in the media by netizens that Taiwanese actress Michelle Chen role to play Xiao Longnu received a lot of criticism from people. Many people have propagated that Michelle Chen’s face is too chubby for the role of Xiao Longu. Do you agree? I have watched many of the adaptations of The Condor Heroes, and seen many Xiao Longnus. Xiao Longnu has always had a beautiful young face than her true age, like she suppose to look younger than Yang Guo and more powerful than him. Xiao Longnu’s beauty is supposedly mysterious, because she has always lived in the Ancient Tomb Sect and has never been to the outside world. When she appears outside to the world for the first time, people would be enchanted by her mystical beauty along with many of her powerful and dangerous moves, like attacking people with the sashes of her sleeves. Chinese beauty is idealized and perceived differently by people and you can say Michelle Chen is not ugly. She is just not thought of as the idealized standard form of beauty accepted for Xiao Longnu.
Well, she is not giving up her role. Michelle Chen is not overpowered by the ridicules and insults she showed resistance and continues to accept her role, and why? Michelle Chen have responded on her Weibo saying, “I am the one who wanted to take on the Little Dragon Girl role. Who defines the rules for her looks. It’s a new interpretation.” Michelle Chen almost considered suicide because of the criticism from netizens for the role of Xiao Long Nu. She attended a charity event for anti-depression in Taipei, Taiwan on May 25, 2014. full source
