Singer from “the first lip synching case in China” attempts suicide
Remember her? I posted a funny video of the singer having her microphone backwards, lip syncing a song a couple of months back. It turned out, this singer named Fang Ziyuan was later charged for lip synching by the authority which makes it “the first lip synching case in China”.
(Netease) Last night, Beijing star agent A-Long told the reporter that the singer from “the first nation lip synching case” attempted suicide by cutting her wrist in her rental apartment in Beijing. Luckily, her roommate discovered her and sent her to the hospital, currently she is still in a coma. Reporter then tried to confirm the news with Fang’s agent Huang Hong. Huang Hong confirmed that Fang attempted suicide but was unwilling to discuss the reason.
Fang Ziyuan, 21 years old, learning dancing in Chengdu at an early age, graduated from Shanghai Film Academy specializing in performing, in 2009, she went to Beijing. September 19 of last year, during the “I am most popular this year” Huang Shengyi Concert at the Shuangliu International Tennis Center, she was investigated and prosecuted on suspicion of lip synching. Thus she became the first person being prosecuted by the law enforcement for lip synching in Mainland China. April of this year she was fined 50,000 yuan. April 4, CCTV’s “Today Saying” program talked about the case investigation process in details.
A-Long is a famous celebrity star agent in Beijing. “Fang Ziyuan and I are neighbors. At the time I was resting at home. Fang’s roommate suddenly knocked on my door, ‘hurry, help Fang Ziyuan, she attempted suicide!’ I went over immediately and saw Fang Ziyuan lying in the bathroom, blood streaming down from her wrist. I helped her up and wrapped her wrist with a towel, then rushed her into the elevator and sent her to the hospital.” Long said, Fang had 2 cuts on her wrist, one deep and one shallow. Due to excessive blood loss, up till 7pm last night, Fang was still unconscious. A-Long speculated the reasons of suicide maybe because of the brutal competition being a “Beijing vagabond”, plus the lip synching incident also gave her tremendous pressure.
