‘The Untamed’: Xiao Zhan’s 2020 projects
While we’ve fallen deeply in love with The Untamed, and can’t seem to stop watching and rewatching it, Wang Yibo and Xiao Zhan appear to have moved on. They have both loaded up their schedules with new projects and activities and giving us brand new shows to obsessively stream.
While it’ll be hard to recreate the magic of The Untamed, we’re already hooked on some of Wang Yibo’s new projects for 2020. Xiao Zhan is also giving us a whole new slate of work to get hooked on in 2020 as well, and we are counting down the days until we get to see him in his new releases.
While we anxiously await more projects that pair the two together, in the meantime we’ve figured out how to get our Xiao Zhan fix this year.
