Yuecheng (Simplified Chinese: 悦成; Traditional Chinese: 悅成), also known in English as King, is an upcoming VOCALOID to be developed by Shanghai Wangcheng in collaboration with Chengdu Yuefang Cultural Broadcast Co. for the VOCALOID4 engine.
He is voiced by Nuochen (诺辰; Nuòchén), the winning candidate for Yuecheng's audition.
Yuecheng was a character from the manhua "Mànhuà Jiā yǔ Dà Míngxīng: Yuèróng yǔ Yuèchéng" ("漫画家与大明星：悦蓉与悦成" / "The Manhua Arist and The Idol: Yuerong and Yuecheng") which was published by NetEase Comics. According to his biography image, his official birthday is listed as July 28 and his astrological sign is a Leo. He has type B blood and his favorite color is red.
In his manhua, Yuecheng was an unemployed boy who stayed at home with his older twin sister, Yuerong. After she blamed him for his freeloader habits, he promised her that he would find a tenant. He aspired to become an idol with a love for dancing and singing (though he is not good at rock genres). While he was singing his song, "Love Lock" ("心锁" / "Xīn Suǒ"), a talent agent named William discovered him and wanted Yuecheng to make a contract. Yuecheng’s career as an idol began from there. He has a mature personality and it was noted that he prefers to eat sweets and dislikes spicy food.
After his debut on May 13, 2017, his biography was altered. It was noted that he has a different personality when he is performing onstage: he has a vivid image compared to his quiet nature in his normal life. His special talents include dancing, singing, performing, cooking, and drawing cards (with a lucky tendency to draw good cards). He likes playing video games (despite the fact that he’s not good at them), drawing (usually games), performing onstage, and manga. He has no pets but is a cat magnet and his character color is gradient pink.
Yuè (悦) means "content" or "pleased" while Chéng (成) means "to finish" or "to succeed". On his official accounts and biography, his official English name is "King".
Yuecheng’s VOCALOID outfit is different in comparison to his manhua counterpart. His color scheme consists of blacks, whites, reds, and pinks, with red being less prominent compared to his manhua version. In the VOCALOID design, he wears a black jacket with pink strings labelled “wangcheng YUECHENG” and small horns located on the hood. On the back of the jacket is a pink logo featuring a devil and his initials. He has a white sleeveless cropped shirt with a high collar and a zipper with a tag bearing his initials, long white pants with rips located on his kneecaps and parts of his thighs, as well as a black belt with his initials on it. His white shoes remains the same as his manhua counterpart in addition to his short white hair which gradates to red. On his left hand, he is wearing three rings: two located on his index finger and one on his ring finger. On his right hand, he wears one ring on his index finger.
- Yuerong: Older twin sister
- William: Talent agent
Yuecheng was originally from his own manhua series published by NetEase Comics. Through Shanghai Wangcheng’s B2B methods, he received a VOCALOID counterpart in collaboration with Chengdu Yuefang Cultural Broadcast Co..
Those who attended the A Pretty Girl in Her Whole Day event on May 13 received a comic featuring Yuecheng, Zhang Chuchu, and Xin Hua. He, along with Chuchu and Xin Hua, was also featured in a manhua known as "Butterfly".
On January 11, 2018, Yuecheng's weibo hosted a poll asking fans what their preferred dating spot would be. For Valentine's day that year, a video was posted featuring Yuecheng as if he were in an otome game. In the video, he takes the viewer on a date in his room based on the winning response in the poll.
|Sandbox/Yuecheng's character status|
Aside from the potential backlash stemming from Yuecheng’s association with Shanghai Wangcheng and its reputation as a company, he was not well liked among Chinese fans. Fans have expressed a dislike for both his and Zhang Chuchu’s designs, particularly about how they appear to be simple or plain. However, there was also a dislike for his character concept as they describe his biography to be very Mary Sue-like.
