Sorry, but in 'Pretty Li Hui Zhen' she was STUNNING, even when she was supposedly 'ugly'. In fact I PREFERRED her hair when it was curly and wavy and her freckles (although quite obviously DRAWN on with an eyebrow pencil). lol!
She had insane chemistry with her second lead in 'Pretty Li Hui Zhen', Zhang Vin, which put her so-called 'first lead romance' with Sheng Peter (who played the male lead, and her so-called childhood sweetheart) Bai Hao.
If she's ugly then I am Quasimodo's uglier twin sister, Quasimona........nice to meet you all.
lol by the way i totally agree, i think the chemistry between her and Zhang Vin was so damn amazing , in fact i had the second lead syndrome the moment i laid my eyes on him - he is so freaking handsome - acting together in other dramas would be brilliant ;)
Uyghurs are a Turkic ethnic group who are mostly muslim living in a region of China and some parts of Russia. Her name is another spelling of the Persian girl name Delroba (Dilruba). The name can be found in other muslim countries/communities as well.
Excuse me, don't assume what chinese names are like. You don't know the history of our country. The long ass character names in Scarlet Heart are also chinese names. The "chinese name" you're talking about is probably the ones in the Han language. Surely, most of China's ethnicites have been Han-ified or Sinicized, and take up 91% of the population. But we still have ethnicites that keep names in their own language.
Ethnicities that have non-Han surnames are the Manchu, Sibe, Hmong, Mongol, Tibetan, Salar, etc. For example, the Qing dynasty royal family's surname Aisin-Gioro (spelled as Aixinjueluo in Han language) is still used today. The Manchus were forced by political reasons to adopt names in the Han language after their dynasty collapsed, but a few still kept their Manchu name. Manchu names in historical dramas "sound chinese" because their names were all transliterated to the Han language, and less than 500 people speak Manchu today.
Also, don't assume that all Han names are mono-syllabic. There is a thing called compound surname, and common names are Ouyang, Zhuge, Huangfu, Shangguan, Situ, etc.
