The following post was spread on Weibo, captioned “#Sasaengs splash water on Zhang Xing Te. If I see you once, I’ll splash you once.” The original photo was posted by the sasaeng, including a mocking in-picture text that reads, “it’s raining, brother.” It was said that he approached the stalkers in order to tell them to stop. That was when they retaliated by splashing him with water.
Zhang Xing Te was praised for his kind nature. He even picked up the cups thrown on the floor by the stalkers, disposing of them so as not to add to the litter in the airport.
It was reported that he had already called the cops on the stalkers. Zhang Xing Te shot to fame through Produce Camp, the Chinese version of Produce 101. He later blossomed into an actor, starring in countless high teen dramas.
