Chinese actress Deng Sha, who played Wei Yingluo's sister in Story of Yanxi Palace, suffered second-degree burns on eight per cent of her body after a cupping session went awry.
A post uploaded on her Weibo on December 14 began with this warning: “The following photos might be disturbing to some”. She then shared that she felt unwell after a hard day of work in the wee hours of December 9, and decided to go for a massage and cupping session at an unnamed spa in Beijing.
