What happens when a talented classical pianist and a dreamy romantic singer come together? All ships set sail!

For more than a month, pianist Li Yundi (李雲迪) and Taiwanese pop singer Leehom Wang (王力宏) were rumored to be more than just friends. The “brokeback” accusations first began when the paparazzi spotted Leehom and Yundi holding hands at A-mei’s (張惠妹) new pub in October 2012. In November 2012 during Thanksgiving weekend, Yundi invited Leehom to his residence in Beijing to have dinner. Leehom also implied through a Weibo post that he had a movie date with Yundi to watch new 3D film,Life of Pi, that same weekend.

Contrary to popular belief, many fans openly supported the rumored coupled. Known as the “Homdi” shippers, Leehom and Yundi supporters diligently scoured every corner of the internet to find as many moments as they could to document their “true love.” Many fanfiction and editorials dedicated to the couple were also written.

At the red carpet premiere of Jackie Chan’s (成龍) new action flick CZ12 <十二生肖>, Leehom and Yundi were the most popular guests that night, receiving more top headline treatment than even the film’s own stars. When Leehom and Yundi’s “relationship” was exposed, Leehom’s Weibo followers increased tenfold. Currently with 27 million followers, Leehom is the second most popular Weibo user online.

However, neither Leehom nor Yundi ever clarified to the media whether their romantic rumors were true or not. With the popularity they are getting recently, should they?

In an interview with Guangzhou’s Southern Metropolis Weekly, Yundi briefly revealed his current relationship with Leehom.

Yundi said, “Personally, I think Leehom and I do share a lot of sparks through our music. We are also great friends. I’ve known Leehom since 2007. Since he is also very familiar with classical music, we clicked fast. We have many topics to talk about, not only privately, but also through our professional careers as well.”

Couple or not, Leehom and Yundi share many things in common. Both musicians light up when they are interviewed for their music, but when they are questioned about their private lives, they only give vague answers.

“We are brothers,” Yundi stressed. “As for love… I’ll leave that to fate.”

      LOL

    2. akari says:

      Man, these two brokebacks look so gay in the picture……I don’t care much about Yundi cause he always looked a bit on the gayish side but as I said before, what a waste of Leehom…….could have had so many women in and out of the industry easily and he chose to play his stick with another guyss’……….what a complete waste of a decent-looking dude!!!!

    3. Samantha says:

      Perhaps I am reading too much into the first photo but Leehom Wang looks almost content, like he has found his soulmate. Couldn’t resist googling him and his other “girlfriends” and he definitely does not look as happy as he is with this gay. Reckon he could be a closet gay like Leslie Cheung, only time will tell.

    4. rosemary says:

      Leave them alone. See them for their talents and leave their personal life alone. As long as they have not hurt anyone along the line, why mind their personal life?
