Is romance in the air for Chinese actress Yang Mi (杨幂)? Netizens certainly think so! They have been following her love life rather closely and are sure she’s found a new beau.
After her divorce with Hawick Lau (劉愷威) in December 2018, Yang Mi was embroiled in scandals. Many believed she was seeing actor Wei Da Xun (魏大勋), however, it turned out to be just rumours. Recently, netizens are sure they’ve found her new boyfriend: 19-year-old Daniel Zhou (周柯宇) from BEST and INTO1.
A few found it hard to believe. After all, Yang Mi is 35 years old, meaning there is a 16-year difference between them. However, netizens have listed several pieces of evidence as proof. Their first confirmation comes from a mobile game. Apparently, the duo like playing a certain game together and they tend to play it quite frequently, for long hours. Also, the couple share the same background. Netizens additionally have observed that Daniel’s hand drawn avatar looks like Yang Mi’s handiwork.
Yang Mi’s in-game name also turned out to be a major clue, according to netizens. Her name is rather innocuous, a simple statement: “Eat candy with me (请我吃颗糖吗)”. However, fans got excited when Daniel seemingly responded to the joke on his Weibo by saying: “Walking to buy sugar.” It was also noted that from Yang Mi’s birthday (12th September), Daniel continued to gift her in-game coins. Their sweet actions left many amazed.
The couple haven’t restricted themselves to online dating, of course. Fans claim their relationship is obvious, especially when the duo are together. During the variety show “Happy Camp (快乐大本营)”, the couple got to sing together. Several fans observed that when Yang Mi touched Daniel’s hand, he acted shy which aroused suspicion.
Additionally, some believe that Yang Mi was the reason why Daniel was successful in “Produce Camp 2021 (创造营2021)”. Daniel joined the show by debuting as an artist under Yang Mi’s company. He managed to come in the 10th place and formed Chinese boy group INTO1 with the others. There were rumours suggesting Daniel was favoured by Yang Mi, however, others have argued that she was only supporting a newcomer. It had nothing to do with their personal relationship.
We have to say, the evidence looks pretty compelling. If the two are truly dating, it seems like a really sweet dating life! On the other hand, they could also be really good friends…
Well, we can’t be sure unless the two artistes admit it themselves. For now, we’ll have to trust in our ‘online detectives’; these ever dedicated netizens.
