Taiwanese female celebrity Michelle Chen has been heavily criticized by netizens ever since she filmed Mainland series The Romance of the Condor Heroes.
She was even called Xiao Long Bao, a reference to Xiao Long Nv in the series, because of her chubby face.
But recently, after going through heavy training for three months on a Mainland reality show, many people have praised her for her weight loss.
Earlier, she showed off a few photos of her playing badminton on Weibo, flaunting her smooth white, long legs.
According to Asian E-News Portal, she even wrote: "Xiao Long Bao can also turn into Wang Zai Xiao Man Tou (Wang Zai little bun biscuit) one day."
The 32-year-old actress shot to stardom after the success of the 2011 Taiwanese movie, You Are the Apple of My Eye, where she played a high school student.
Known for her sweet demeanour and girl-next-door looks, she passes off easily as someone in her late teens and early twenties.
