In the year 2013, Zhang Yuxi debuted in the acting industry as a supporting actress in Man Comes to Tang Dynasty. This was her first drama. Her character's name was Er Nu. Her character in this drama feel kind of weird but as a newcomer, her acting was quite good. This drama is available on YouTube, but unfortunately, it doesn’t have any subtitles, which is the reason why even though many people wanted to watch this, they couldn’t.

My Little Princess (2016)

A must watch drama for Cdrama fans. My favorite drama. I don’t know how many times I have watched this drama. It’s a great rom-com. Everyone did a great job in this drama. Mike Angelo and Xixi are first main leads. Let’s talk about the characters:

Zhang Yuxi as princess Lin Xing Chen, the only heiress of the Lin family. She's a lonely princess but people think that she is a spoiled brat. A very rich girl.

She is raised by her step mother and very good at playing guitar and violin. A good hearted person. Engaged with childhood enemy. Crazy for his uncle since childhood. A badass with a habit of spending a lot of money. A BL manga reader.
Mike as Jiang Nian Yu, the handsome and smart boy of the school. Every girl's sweetheart. A poor boy. Helps everyone. Has a big fear. Good at playing every musical instrument.

The first two pictures are the imagination of princess Lin Xing Chens BL fantasy between her fiancé and the main lead. In the third picture, you can see her fiancé aka childhood enemy played by Kenji Chen. The fourth picture is the character we usually see in dramas as first lead, a naive girl.
