It’s nowhere near Valentine’s Day, but romance seems to be in the air for these two couples. Netizens were delighted to catch a glimpse of both, but favoured one over the other.
Angelababy or Angela Yeung (杨颖) was recently sighted with co-actor Edward Lai (賴冠霖), aka Lai Kuan-lin or Guanlin. Apparently, they were working on a romantic scene for their recent drama. However, fans felt James Lee Soo-hyun (李铢衔, 이주현)’s affection with his girlfriend was more authentic.
The shooting for Chinese drama “Love The Way You Are ( 爱情应该有的样子)” is underway and one of their romantic scenes apparently takes place at the beach. Paparazzi caught the former Wanna One member and the actress having a romantic date involving holding hands, hugging and kissing. The interaction was tooth-achingly sweet.
In one scene, Guanlin pulls Angelababy in for a kiss, portraying a timeless smooch moment. However, some fans have been criticising their acting skills. “(Angela)’s body is stiff and (she has) poor acting skills,” one comment read. Another comment said: “Weirdly disgusting.”
Others agreed, claiming it was nothing do do with age, but they found it embarrassing. “I frowned while watching the clip,” a netizen admitted. “I don’t know (about this)…” Another added: “It feels like (it might be) a bad drama again.”
In contrast, James Lee and his girlfriend’s romantic outing made fans squeal. The couple were seen visiting Universal Studio’s Beijing with his family on 15th September. Both wore white T-shirts and held hands openly during the trip. Netizens found them adorable, even cooing over their height differences, saying it was “cute”.
The Korean-American actor has been gaining popularity after appearing on “Call Me By Fire (披荆斩棘的哥哥)”. He had admitted he was seeing someone early on in the show, but hadn’t given away her identity. However, hardworking netizens were able to find out who she was. As it turns out, James has been dating Ma Wenxi (馬汶希), Angelababy’s friend and photographer!
Ma was born in 1988 and is a graduate of Beijing Normal University-Hong Kong Baptist University United International College (UIC). She is often seen with Angela as they shop, dine and travel together. The two friends appear affectionate and seem to have a solid friendship.
James was seen at Ma’s birthday party with their other friends. The two sat together and seemed close as he had an arm resting on the back her chair. Ma has also posted about James several times on her Weibo. Her most recent post was about James and his hand injury. The actor was sharing his story with another participant on “Call Me By Fire (披荆斩棘的哥哥)” and the clip went viral. Ma said: “Distressed. I want to cry when I watch this (part).”
Although both couples are certainly sweet, one has successfully won the hearts of fans over the other. Hopefully, Angela and Edward can step up their game to deliver an electrifying performance!
