Nowadays, it’s common to strut your stuff on social media. Be it talents, skills, the odd hobby or even just your good looks, you can post pretty much anything on social media. Of course, just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
Taiwanese actress Ili Zheng Jiachun (鄭家純) knows she looks good and is proud of it. Netizens have certainly boosted her confidence by consistently praising her. However, her most recent posting on Facebook has made a few think she’s crazy.
On 24th November, Ili posted a video of her posing for a camera. The pose itself wasn’t strange, however, netizens were taken aback by what she was (or should it be wasn’t?) wearing. At first glance, it looked very much like the actress wasn’t wearing anything. However, a better look assured viewers that she was wearing skin-tight clothes.
Apparently, she was shooting for Double 11, aka Singles’ Day. Ili explained she had taken great pains to maintain her body shape this year. “Pinched (my) belly every day before (shooting) to see if (I) could,” she shared. “There is no new romance this year, happily fat (with self-discipline).”
The skin-coloured leotard certainly does its job of showing off all of Ili’s curves. However, some netizens are harshly judging her outfit. “What kind of (stupid) dress…?” one asked. “Shame is really strong,” another remarked while one netizen added the outfit looked similar to the one worn by the dancer in Sia’s “Chandelier ” music video. A few also questioned her shoes, saying it looked big and uncomfortable.
The actress calmly handled the negative criticism with an indifferent air. “You must not have seen the main vision of (the brand) Solid Colour (純色) for Double 11,” she responded to a naysayer. Aside from the negative comments, she garnered a lot of support from her fans. who praised her outfit and body.
Ili also added her take on the issue later on Facebook. “I think people who care about (the skin-coloured suit) have no sense of humour,” she wrote. “(You) live your life very (strictly). You guys worked hard.” Not only that, the actress recommended not caring about such matters. “If you care about it, it will (only) make your life harder,” she advised.
The former chicken chop advertisement actress certainly has some wisdom to share. Her fans know she isn’t shy about anything, including her body and sex life. It’s no surprise she wouldn’t mind flaunting her curves freely on Facebook either!
