This is less of a Weibo Wednesday update and more of round-up of a bunch of celebrities who announced they were dating (or in one case, married) and whom we couldn’t bother devoting an entire post to. Let me know if there are any celebrities you’d like an update from, because the Weibosphere has been a little dry lately, tbh.
Whether you loved or hated The Romance of the Condor Heroes (神雕侠侣), you gotta admit that the way leads Chen Xiao and Michelle Chen went public with their real-life relationship is pretty cute.
Chen Xiao: There will be a day when you will share my surname.
The Condor Heroes also gave us another couple in Chen Xiang and Mao Xiaotong (Rachel Mao). As far as I know, the two didn’t share any scenes in the drama (since their characters are from different eras), but they previously collaborated on the music video for Chen Xiang’s “Journey Together” (同行) in 2014.
Chen Xiang: Very happy to meet you.
And now for the announcement that nobody saw coming… Top Combine‘s Liu Zhoucheng (aka Kenny) is now married! His wife, who goes by “MiuViki” on Weibo, says that she is the marketing director for the Canada branch of Galaxy Lighting. Congratulations to them!
If there is a next life, I will definitely be with you. Do people have a next life? I don’t know, so I want @MiuViki now.
In other Top Combine news, Zhang Yuan wished fellow member Jin Ensheng (Xiao Wu) a bittersweet happy birthday right at midnight on September 17. Last I heard, Top Combine is planning to release one last album before Xiao Wu’s mandatory military service in Korea. As for whether they’ll reunite after… *crosses fingers and tries not to cry*
Oh Wu, this is your last birthday before you leave. I wished you happy birthday for all of your seven birthdays that I spent with you in China~ The next time, it might be three years after… At that time, I’ll bring a child to wish you happy 30th.
For those of you who fell for Zhang Danfeng after seeing him in The Journey of Flower (花千骨)… well, sorry, he’s already taken and has a one-year-old daughter! Here’s a photo of Yannes Zhang (his real daughter) holding a plushie of Tang Bao (his “daughter” on the show).
They finally got a picture together, my little Tang Bao and “Tang Bao.”
And while we’re on the topic of The Journey of Flower… I’m not the only one facepalming at the idea of the modern-day sequel, right?
