A lot of fans (including Wannabes) have been curious about Lai Kuanlin (賴冠霖/라이관린)’s love life for quite some time now. If you recall, the former Wanna One member was previously linked to a girl named Ceci Zhang, though the rumour eventually turned out to be fake.
In a more recent news, rumours began circulating on the web claiming that the 19-year-old is currently dating actress Zhou Ye (周也). The allegation came after a marketing (Ying Xiao Hao) account claimed that the duo met up for four days during an online live stream.
Additionally, the account admin, Zhang Xiao Han, also dished that both Lai and the 23-year-old starlet used their staff members to keep their tracks hidden. As revealed by Zhang on her live broadcast, Lai and Zhou had secretly met on these occasions:
Zhou her staff member checked into the Rosewood Hotel in Shanghai. Afterwards, they went to Lai’s apartment which is located 20km away from the hotel. Someone suspected that Lai’s assistant picked the actress up and brought her upstairs to the apartment.
Zhou reportedly made her exit from Lai’s apartment to film a commercial and attend an event. The latter also left his home for shooting.
Zhou left Lai’s apartment and headed for Zheijiang Hengdian.
Zhou checked into the Jing An Shangri-La Hotel in Shanghai. That evening, the Taiwanese idol finished his filming in Suzhou and went straight to the same place. On top of that, Zhou’s assistant was also spotted following Lai entering the hotel.
Zhou and Lai left the building separately.
Sina Entertainment reached out to both parties. However, neither Lai nor Zhou’s sides have yet to address the circulating rumours. For the uninitiated, the two celebs met on a variety show called “50km Tao Hua Wu”. It is said that they even have a couple name together; “Coconut Milk Ice Cream” (which included their names “Ye” and “Lin”).
Not long after the reports went viral, an internet user revisited an episode of “50km Tao Hua Wu” featuring the alleged dating couple, in which the “Word Of Honour” actress was seen helping the “Burn It Up” jam-maker putting his apron on, while Meng Ziyi was watching from the side. It was also reported that both Lai and Zhou have been seeing each other since July 2021.
In case you’re wondering, the fan who sparked the rumour was actually the same person who came up with the infamous comic strip about an A-List actor’s who dated a fan for a couple of years and then ghosted her. More on the story here.
