A fatter wallet, a thinner waistline, Weng Meiling still thinks it's worth it.

[Interview with Yawng Neiwen]

Since her role as Wong Yung, Weng Meiling's popularity has skyrocketed and she has become a new star in the film and television industry.

Nowadays, she is acting in one drama after another, and after her role in "The Fearless Duo", she only has a short break before her new drama "The King of Rusty Bridge" comes out. She took a short break to appear on stage in Singapore during the broadcast of "The Fearless Duo", but she started to lose weight because of the hard work.

"Yes, many people said I had lost a lot of weight, but I didn't notice it too much. I don't think I've lost too much weight," she says. It's just that I don't notice it too much," says Weng Meiling.

She didn't realise she had lost weight because she didn't have time to notice. If she were to look at the cover photo of an earlier issue of Golden TV, she would be able to tell the difference from the one she has now.

"I've seen that portrait too, and it's not even close to the same size. I don't have the time to decide, and I don't get enough sleep, so I've lost weight."
Weng Meiling's eyes are getting bigger and bigger because the flesh on his cheeks is shrinking.

"Have you ever thought about gaining weight? You look haggard too."

"No, it's just a matter of time, we're actors. It's hard to plan to gain weight. It's hard to plan to gain weight, but if you do, you'll lose ten years of experience in a hurry. So we should just let it develop naturally."

Weng Meiling has a point. Many actors lose weight in direct proportion to the number of films they do, and gaining weight is just a matter of thinking about it. She says she is not afraid of being crippled and sees it as a good opportunity to practice, so she is happy to act in as many dramas as possible.

"What are the surprises or special things that happened this time?"

"Gains? I've made some extra money. I went on stage to make some real money. Something special? Nothing. But the fans there are really enthusiastic. Every day, many people come to the hotel lobby or the concert hall. I sometimes saw them waiting at the entrance of the theatre when I returned from the stage and had a snack, it was almost three or four o'clock, and they were mostly fans who couldn't get tickets or didn't have money to buy tickets. They were very patient and devoted," she says. "The majority of children were there, some of them even went for a few nights in a row. You know, when we sing, we always say a round of introductory remarks before we bring out the title of the song. But every time when I was in the middle of a song or when I wanted to bring out the title, they were already there for me, which was embarrassing. I was embarrassed to find out later that they came every night. There was a look of joy on her face."

She has a great audience, especially children, eight out of ten are her fans. And her fan club is dominated by children.

In her latest appearance, she only brought ten songs with her, including Chinese, English and Mandarin songs, and was in a hurry. She will start working on "Rusty Bridge" as soon as it is finished. However, it has been announced that all artists are not allowed to take leave for the five months from April to August, so will there be any exceptions? We will have to wait and see.
