Chinese actress Liu Haocun, 23, has had a bumper year. After making her acting debut in Zhang Yimou’s One Second in 2020, she starred in six other films, one of which, A Little Red Flower, earned her a Best Actress nomination at the recent Golden Rooster Awards.
The award eventually went to Zhang Xiaofei for her work in Hi, Mom.
While moviegoers and critics have been vocal about how much they love Haocun, her newfound fame has come with a price.
Netizens started digging into her background and discovered a court case that Haocun’s parents were involved in 2012.
