Yes, I’m awfully shallow, but I want so desperately to shout this at the top of my lungs for the whole world to hear: Victor Huang (Huang Wei De) is my looooove! He’s definitely on my top three mainland actors list. The other two gentlemen are Yuan Hong and Feng Shao Feng.
When I saw him for the first time as Lü Xiangchuan in Meteor Butterfly Sword (2010), I never would have guessed that he’s almost 40. Of course, Lü Xiangchuan the character is quite despicable, but because of the way Victor portrayed him, Lü Xiangchuan’s death was the only moment I cried in the series. I practically began translating the novel Meteor, Butterfly, Sword just for him.
I saw him in 单身女王 (3S Lady) a week ago and fell in love all over again. His character is just precious. His romantic, playful, carefree side clashes so wonderfully with his serious and ruthless CEO persona. And of course let’s not forget his stubble and guitar-playing! Every girl’s dream hunk. 3S Lady is the best modern mainland drama I’ve ever watched. I still can’t get over it. He and Shirley Dai had such beautiful chemistry together. I can’t believed I squealed like a fangirl so many times in the series over a guy 21 years older than me.
灿爷 aaaah…you drive me crazy. I can tell that Victor likes his character’s feisty nickname. He and his hunkiness and his jazzy voice…aaaaaah. <3
