Aww, look at that cute chubby face! Anyone would be easily smitten by Zhang Ziyi’s baby girl, Xing Xing.
Not the millions of Song Joong Ki (송중기)’s female fans though. Soon after Zhang uploaded a photo of the “Descendants Of The Sun” actor cradling her 7-month-old daughter, it went viral on social media.
According to reports, many fans have been commenting about wanting to swap places with little Xing Xing (which means awake in English). “I want to be Xing Xing!” declared one fan. Judging at how comfortable the Korean actor look while carrying the baby girl, some netizens were even proposing to him to have their children.
To enquiring minds wondering what the boyish-looking hunk was doing with Zhang’s daughter, the 2 Asian superstars were appointed as brand ambassadors for Proya and were in the United States (Los Angeles) to shoot for the cosmetics advertisement.
It was previously reported that the boyish-looking hunk had secured a lucrative endorsement deal worth 4 billion won (approximately RM13.8 million) from the Chinese cosmetic brand. According to International Business Times, this would propel him as one of top earning Korean actors alongside other A-list hallyu stars such as Kim Soo Hyun and Lee Min Ho.
“Song Joong Ki, who is all the rage now in Asia thanks to “Descendants of the Sun”, is rising in value. In China, the price for his endorsements skyrocketed. In half a year, he makes 16 million Yuan, which is higher than what Lee Min Ho and Kim Soo Hyun makes combined. Currently, around 10 advertising agencies are sending him various offers,” a Chinese report was quoted saying.
Last we heard, Song Joong Ki had signed on to star in “Battleship Island” (군함도) where he will play Park Moo-young, a member of a Korean Independence group who sneaks into a battleship in order to rescue a fellow friend.
The movie is expected to be released in 2017.
