郭敬明 (Guō Jìngmíng) is the wealthiest writer in China, and only 34 years old. For three years in a row, he has been voted “Most Hated Male Celebrity in China” on the popular gossip forum Tianya.cn, both because of some ugly plagiarism charges, and because of his general attitude and extravagant lifestyle.
Himself a teen celebrity (he started winning prestigious writing prizes in high school), his primary audience is young adults who enjoy his love stories, which often include fantasy elements.
His most famous story, 小时代 (Xiăoshídài), “Tiny Times”, was published in installments in his own magazine, and has since been turned into a wildly popular three-season TV series. It tells the story of four girls who live in Shànghăi, including their love-related challenges.
If you ask an average person in the street about him, their first comment is likely to be about his size: At 4’ 10’’ (147 cm), Guō Jìngmíng’s received hatred per inch is unparallelled.
You love him or you hate him. Most do the latter. Official Weibo account.
