Zheng Shuang is a Chinese actress who was born Zheng Yihan on August 22, 1991. She rose to prominence in Meteor Shower (2009–2010) as Chu Yuxun, becoming the youngest actress to be nominated for Best Actress at the China TV Golden Eagle Awards. She appeared in the hit romance comedy drama Love O2O in 2016.

Zheng was also named one of the "Four Dan Actresses of the Post-90s Generation" (Chinese: 90) by Southern Metropolis Daily, alongside Zhou Dongyu, Guan Xiaotong, and Yang Zi.

Zheng was found guilty of tax evasion (a total of 299 million RMB) on January 20, 2021. Coupled with her surrogacy scandal, she was labeled by Chinese state regulators as "actors with poor conduct," and she was blacklisted and barred from all public appearances, with all existing public activities relating to her entertainment career forced to be canceled.


Zheng Shuang graduated from Beijing Film Academy in 2011 with a bachelor of arts in performance.

Acting debut and rising popularity from 2009 to 2013.

Zheng Shuang made her acting debut in Meteor Shower, Hunan TV's remake of the hit Taiwanese drama Meteor Garden, in 2009. The drama was a huge success in China, catapulting Zheng to stardom. She also released a single for the soundtrack, "Love Waltz." Zheng was nominated for Best Actress at the 25th China TV Golden Eagle Awards, making her the youngest nominee. Zheng later reprised her role in the drama's second season, which aired in 2010.

Zheng starred in Gordon Chan's fantasy film Mural in 2011, earning her the Hong Kong Film Directors' Guild Award for Best New Actress. In the same year, she appeared in the action comedy No Limit and the historical romance drama War of Desire.

Zheng played Princess Taiping and Princess Andingsi in the historical drama Secret History of Princess Taiping in 2012. In 2013, she starred in the sequel to the 2011 hit drama The Queen of SOP 2, a fashion romance drama.

Rising Popularity from 2014 to 2020

Zheng appeared as a fox spirit in the hit fantasy action drama Swords of Legends in 2014. The popularity of the drama led to Zheng's re-evaluation, and she was named Audience Favorite Actress at the 13th Huading Awards.

Zheng appeared in her first period drama, The Cage of Love, written by Tong Hua, in 2015. At the 19th Huading Awards, she was named Best Actress in the Revolutionary-Era Drama category for her performance. She co-starred with Jing Boran in Love Weaves Through a Millennium, a remake of the South Korean time-travel romance drama Queen In-hyun's Man, and appeared on the travel reality show Divas Hit the Road the same year. Zheng won the Popular Actress award at the 1st China Television Drama Quality Ceremony due to her extensive press coverage and successful works.

In 2016, Zheng starred in the historical melodrama Chronicle of Life, which was based on Fei Wo Si Cun's novel Lonely Courtyard in Late Spring. She then played Ding Yuehua in The Three Heroes and Five Gallants, a historical mystery drama based on the 19th-century classic novel of the same name. Zheng co-starred with Yang Yang in the romance comedy drama Love O2O, which was based on Gu Man's novel of the same name. Zheng's popularity grew as a result of the drama's success both domestically and internationally.

Rush to the Dead Summer, a youth melodrama based on Guo Jingming's novel of the same name, starred Zheng alongside Chen Xuedong in 2017. The drama received praise for its realistic depiction of youth and campus life, as well as its stunning cinematography. She also co-starred in Wu Kong, a fantasy-adventure film, her first in six years.

Zheng appeared in the romance drama My Story for You with Luo Jin in 2018. The same year, she helped write the script for the science fiction romance drama Hi, I'm Saori, in which she stars. Forbes China named Zheng to their 30 Under 30 Asia 2017 list, which included 30 influential people under the age of 30 who have had a significant impact in their fields.

Zheng appeared in Zhao Baogang's female-centric youth drama Youth Fight in 2019. The same year, she co-starred with Ma Tianyu in the romance melodrama River Flows To You, based on Guo Jingming's novel Cry Me A Sad River. Zheng was set to star in the spy drama Secret Keepers, in which she would play both an undercover agent and a Japanese spy. Secret Keepers was supposed to be released on September 5, 2020, but on September 2, 2020, it was abruptly halted and postponed indefinitely. The postponement was caused by a general blacklist imposed by state regulators on a co-star, Zhao Lixin, which required the production team to edit Zhao out of the drama.

Scandal surrounding surrogacy

It was revealed in January 2021 that Zheng had two children born through surrogacy in the United States and had allegedly first demanded late term abortions at 7 months into the pregnancies and expressed annoyance when informed that it was illegal, then abandoned them after her relationship with their father soured. Surrogacy is not permitted in China, but due to legal loopholes, some Chinese citizens may seek to have children through surrogate mothers in other countries. In China, news of people using surrogacy is usually met with a strong backlash.

Many brands began to drop her after the news broke. Prada later fired her as a spokesperson due to "significant recent media coverage" of her "personal life." Some brands, including Lola Rose of London, Chioture of China, and Aussie of Australia, had distanced themselves from her, while others had deleted social media posts promoting her. Many of her fanclubs had also removed content featuring her with fans abandoning her.

The scandal drew the attention of state regulators, who issued statements on various state media platforms criticizing Zheng's use of surrogacy and labeling her a "problematic artiste." Zheng has since been blacklisted by state regulators, and all existing entertainment activities involving her have been forced to be cancelled. When asked anonymously, several producers stated that no future programs would want to involve Zheng. The awarding committee also revoked awards won at the 13th and 19th Huading Awards.

Meituan Waimai, a Chinese shopping platform, classified "Zheng Shuang" as a sensitive word on February 20. Users were unable to order food if they entered "Zheng Shuang" as the recipient or picker.

Evasion of taxes

Zhang Heng revealed his chat history with Zheng Shuang and her mother in April 2021, revealing Zheng received a salary of 160 million RMB (US$24.6 million) for an unreleased TV series, A Chinese Ghost Story. It was claimed that Zheng presented tax authorities with a lower taxable amount of 48 million RMB, while the remainder was charged as fees by a company owned by her mother. In 2018, China enacted legislation to limit the highest possible salary for an actor to 40%-70% of a film's production costs. This prompted a tax evasion investigation into Zheng. To save the TV show, the production team decided to replace Zheng's face with Peng Xiaoran's throughout the series.

On August 27, 2021, it was revealed that Zheng received 156 million RMB for A Chinese Ghost Story and had understated her earnings through a 'yin-yang contract' arrangement. She was found to have failed to declare 191 million RMB between 2020 and 2021, evaded 45.27 million RMB in taxes, and underpaid her taxes by 26.52 million RMB. Zheng was charged with tax evasion by China's State Taxation Administration and ordered to pay a penalty of 299 million RMB (US$46.1 million). Zheng had paid the evaded taxes and late fees, leaving only the fine outstanding. Zhang was the agent suspected of facilitating the arrangement, and he is currently being investigated. The National Radio and Television Administration also ordered the cancellation of all programs in which Zheng had appeared, including A Chinese Ghost Story.

Private life

Zheng Shuang met producer Zhang Heng in May 2018 while filming a reality show. In August 2018, the couple announced their relationship and founded a company together. On January 19, 2019, the couple exchanged wedding vows in the United States. They did, however, announce their split in December 2019. On January 18, 2021, Zhang revealed that he had been stranded in the United States for over a year to care for two children. The two children were born on December 19, 2019 and January 4, 2020 to surrogate mothers in the United States. Both Zhang and Zheng have since confirmed that they are the children's parents. Zhang claimed that Zheng abandoned the two children after the couple split up and refused to sign legal documents allowing the children to travel to China. Zheng had denied the allegations, claiming Zhang had cheated on her in September 2019 and had returned to China.

Zheng's fertility clinic is reportedly owed US$68,000 for the successful surrogacy. According to reports, the clinic also confirmed Zheng's request to terminate the pregnancies at the seventh month, which was denied. The clinic also claimed that she wanted to pay them monthly to raise the children in the United States rather than bring them back to China.

She and her family also claimed that she did not abandon the children and that she had been preparing to fight for custody since 2019. On 23 January 2021, Zheng's father revealed in a video recording that the conversation that went viral was made when Zheng and Zhang had just broken up; the family simply wanted to find any way to cut Zhang off from Zheng's life, rather than not wanting the children. Zheng's father also stated that the couple decided to have children through surrogacy due to poor health conditions caused by Zheng's work, and he apologized for 'not correctly advising Zheng's decision-making process.'

In May 2021, an American court granted Zhang full custody of the two children on the grounds that the children recognized Zhang as the sole parent. Simultaneously, the court ordered Zheng to undergo treatment for 6 months to stabilize her mental health, as well as to interact with the children three times a week to allow them to form a familial bond.
