Since announcing their dating relationship in January, Yang Mi (楊冪) and Hawick Lau (劉愷威) received more money making opportunities to jointly appear in public appearances. The hot couple was welcomed by fans and grabbed the imagination of the media, who awarded Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) as a “third party” to spice up their relationship further! Will Yang Mi and Hawick Lau prove that they are a true power couple able to generate box office sales for their new movie, Hold Onto Love <Hold住愛>?

After their mainland drama, Ru Yi <如意>, audiences will have another chance to witness the sizzling chemistry between 37-year-old Hawick Lau and 25-year-old Yang Mi in Hold Onto Love. A rising star in mainland China, Hawick will have bed scenes with Chrissie Chau in the movie.

Hawick and Yang Mi’s Love Magnified On Big Screen

At the movie’s press conference, Director Zhang Qi (张琦) explained,  “In the initial casting, I did not know that Yang Mi and Hawick Lau were dating. Yang Mi was cast first. The lead actor was finalized as Hawick Lau, due to his stylish air. He resembles many aspects of the lead character, ‘Liu Kaiwei.’ After realizing that Yang Mi and Hawick were real-life lovers, I felt as if I had won the lottery!”

In Hold Onto Love, Hawick and Yang Mi portray ex-lovers, who find new love interests. After breaking up, Hawick and Yang Mi discover that they had won a big prize: a couples’ vacation package to Sanya, Hainan! Arriving on the island, unexpected incidents occur in their relationship.

Without revealing too many plot details, producer Li Jinwen (李錦文) described Hold Onto Love as a “honeymoon travelogue,” filming in Sanya, Jianfengling Yanoda.  Director Zhang Qi said that it was not simply a love movie, but explored how people love each other, with controversial elements.

Onscreen, Chrissie Chau will portray the sexy “third party” in Yang Mi and Hawick Lau’s relationship in Hold Onto Love. Asked how Chrissie felt about this, she laughed, “It’s an eye sore,” towards the loving couple’s behavior. The director also revealed that Hawick was so immersed in his dating scenes with Yang Mi, that Hawick continued to hold onto Yang Mi’s hand after the cameras were turned off.

Appearing with Yang Mi in a movie together for the first time, Hawick admitted that he felt nervous. “In the beginning, I was a little worried. I was afraid that we will be unable to bite back our laughter during filming! This feeling disappeared afterward, in which I discovered that we had greater understanding in our work together.”

Hawick Laughs Over Nicholas Tse Rumors

Yang Mi allegedly had knocked on Nicholas Tse’ hotel room door during the filming of Ghost Bullets <消失的子彈>, an incident which Nicholas denied had occurred. In a joint interview with Oriental Daily, Hawick laughed over the rumors that linked Yang Mi to Nicholas. Hawick expressed the importance of proper communication between lovers, a skill which many relationships lacked. Hawick said, “Everyone knows that she (Yang Mi) is a popular actress, which makes it easy to attract such unexpected rumors!”

Hawick  did not question Yang Mi about her rumors with Nicholas. Hawick said surely, “I If I were to ask, then that means I have no confidence in myself! We rarely argue,” Hawick said that the couple would maximize on their time spent together.

Asked about marriage intentions, Hawick said, “We are focused on having fun together in our dating relationship right now.” Asked whether Yang Mi had many suitors, Hawick joked, “There is no need to worry. I have a lot of pursuers too!” The couple smiled at each other and appeared to be passionately in love.

Hawick Consoles Yang Mi’s Fears

In his Weibo blog earlier, Hawick had indicated that Yang Mi was an insecure woman. Admitting their relationship publicly apparently boosted her confidence in their dating relationship. While filming in rural settings earlier, Yang Mi came across snakes, rodents, and bugs, in which she complained on a daily basis to Hawick. He professed that his heart felt her discomfort and worried about her. Yang Mi laughed when Hawick recounted the experience at the press conference yesterday.

Jayne: Hawick and Yang Mi appear to be a very popular young couple in China. Hawick will produce a mainland drama for the first time this year, in which they will portray lovers once again. That will be 3 filming projects together over the last 3 years! I do like this couple…hope they will last.

He seems giddly in love with Yang Mi, who is more reserved in video interviews and harder to read.

    1. Hannahh says:

      So agree with you Jayne! They’re soo cute together and seem to me that they have lots of fun in their relationship. Hope they will last. Can’t wait to see their new movie n tv drama.

    2. rei says:

      Hawick Lau looked like another person after his plastic surgery!

      • Veejay says:

        He does looks like LF after his plastic surgery..something tell me Hawick and LF has been exchanging… number?

      • lol says:

        lol Hawick and Raymond do look alike now. Maybe they had the same ‘treatment’ to their faces

        • Veejay says:

          Dunno why, I’ve this feeling that Hawick will get dumped pretty quickly..probably due to Yang Mi’s rising popularity surge while Hawick “is” just popular mostly in Mainland and this “trend” will soon replaced by someone hotter etc.

        • Fox says:

          Yang Mi isn’t in China?

          Hawick actually is popular before Yang Mi, lol. Just that you only follow Txb series then you dun noe him much.

        • Veejay says:

          I could be “just” following tvb series that’s why I dun know Hawick much but I knew him back in those old tvb series when he was still in HK. Even if he has gotten popular in mainland but that doesn’t mean he’s half popular yet in other asia countries.. My point is even if I didnt watch any mainland series, I still know who Yang mi is just because she’s really popular thru out hk and mainland. That proves yang mi is more popular than hawick.

        • Fox says:

          I doubt that Yang Mi is that famous in HK :). Or maybe I can say that in HK, Hawick might be more famous as his name appeared longer there than Yang Mi. I don’t know how to prove to you but Hawick is still the endorser for some branches in HK and his posters appeared there. You might know Yang Mi due to the promotion she is getting by now and not familiar with Hawick’s fame. For example, do you know who is Lang Lang? Hehe, his gf Gong Xinliang is more revealed so ppl know her more, but Lang Lang is in fact more famous.

      • Canto says:

        Is it true that he has plastic surgery? I didn’t know that!

        Is Harwick popular in China? He is known but not that hot in HK right…

        • Jayne says:

          Hawick became popular last year after “Sealed With a Kiss” (千山暮雪) became a sleeper hit. In his latest drama, he had several bed scenes. He appears to be popular and has his own place among young “idol type” mainland stars, due to his height, good looks, and muscular figure. I think Hawick stands out because of his “modern” and “trendy” air, not necessarily his excellent acting.

          Yang Mi is extremely popular in China, thus their dating news is closely watched by the Chinese media right now.

        • Veejay says:


          What does sleeper hit means? sorry..

        • Jayne says:

          A sleeper hit is “unexpected” or surprise hit. I would characterize “Ghetto Justice” as a sleeper hit, since no one expected it to be so successful at the time of filming or even initial broadcast.

        • Jayne says:

          Hawick’s most famous HK role to date was playing “On Jai” in “A Kindred Spirit.” I believe he had capitalized on this fame to initially secure roles in mainland China. But it didn’t happen overnight. It took close to a decade for his fame to reach to current height, so he deserves credit for paving his own path. Perhaps Lau Dan may have had a few connections in China for Hawick, but most likely success was due to his own credit.

          I believe Hawick’s biggest hit in China to-date is “Sealed With a Kiss,” and “Ru Yi” with Yang Mi got a lot of press during its broadcast. Now that he is leading in a movie, his fame has definitely reached a certain height.

          Starring in a summer movie, having bed scenes with Chrissie Chau, filming topless scenes in mainland dramas, I think Hawick is considered to be a semi-sex symbol right now.

          As for plastic surgery, he denied it, but I do notice that his eyes look a lot sharper than before. It does not look to be major work (if any was done), but refinement to highlight good looks that were already there.

        • Canto says:

          Thanks Jayne, for giving a better understanding and perspective on Harwick’s fame.

          Yes, actually I noticed him in his early days in A Kindred Spirit. His facial features were cute even when he was green behind the ears.

          With piling on age a plus for men, I can understand if he grew into a semi s-x symbol if he develops his body and he has his boyish good looks.

          I am glad that his popularity is rising in China. That makes him more suited to Yang Mi somehow.

          I didn’t know that Yang Mi was 25. I thought she was 21, 22. 25 is mid twenties. She has about 10 years more ahead of her before young ‘uns start terming her ‘over the hill’…

        • Veejay says:

          thanks Jayne for the explanation. I guess Hawick just got lucky and not due to his acting skill?

        • Fox says:

          No, Canto :). He dun have one.

          Hawick is famous in China for a long while. He dun work in HK anymore after leaving ATV.

        • jasmine7 says:

          Hawick has done many mainland/taiwan chinese series in early 1900s dramas/settings as well as modern. He can do drama and comedy and I must have watched at least 10 of his series already so far and actually didn’t quite like Sealed with a Kiss. He delivered 100% but the script is a little ‘messy’.

          Yang Mi was ok but only hit the big time together with William Feng ShaoFeng after ‘Gong’. At one time, I thought they were a couple cause it was rumoured that Feng actually like her a lot. But since joining Huayi Bros, Feng is also going places with White Vengence, and the latest Tai Chi-O.

      • Hannahh says:

        he does look a little different from before (10yrs ago)

    3. rei says:

      It’s creepy…

    4. Canto says:

      Jayne’s comments: He seems giddly in love with Yang Mi, who is more reserved in video interviews and harder to read.

      This is a worrying comment. Never bodes well for a relationship if one party loves the other more.

      Yang Mi’s star seems to be rising much faster than his lately? If she becomes very popular I can see how this might put a strain on their relationship.

      Even if they try not to mind in the beginning, others may talk, misunderstandings may occur and they may grow distant if apart for a long period of time…

      They are cute together but she is young and has plenty of opportunities ahead of her…

      • Jayne says:

        You can watch an interview clip with Hawick and Yang Mi at Oriental Daily, where they respond to rumors regarding Nicholas Tse. Hawick seemed at ease, while she was more worried. Perhaps it was a language barrier, since the interview was in Cantonese? Anyhow, her body language was tense and he was very comfortable, as if he truly dismissed the rumors.


        Yang Mi is only 25, so she likely has another 10 years to really reach for the highest stars in her career. Anyway, Hawick did say that their relationship is mainly fun and enjoying each other…so nothing wrong as long as they are on the same wavelength.

        They both sound ambitious in what they wish to accomplish anyway.

        • Cloud says:

          I’m glad they’re having fun with each other, but I have a feeling that once their fun is over they will separate.

      • heTieshou says:

        I think one always loves the other one more but some are more balanced than others.

        I hope that they will last but time will tell.

    5. kixbaby says:

      he old, she not.

    6. apple says:

      37 AND 25??? hmmm….. that’s like 12 years difference.. won’t last….

      • dragon says:

        Age is but a number. Look at Roger Kwok and Cindy Au age gap… Love is a bonding between two people. A relationship last or don’t last really depends on the personalities. Only time will tell whether our partner is compatible with us or not, not because of the age difference.

    7. NX says:

      There’s is an age gap for Yang Mi to stay with Hawick, especially when her career is on the rise. Wish them all the best.

    8. Funn Lim says:

      At some point this triangle relationship will turn into octagon.

      • josie says:

        Hmm… maybe bernice should give hawick a call.

        The way he had his arm around Yang mi in the interview, was like marking his territory. Maybe she did knock on nic’s door…

        • Veejay says:

          It’s obvious that Hawick is scared that Yang Mi will dump him for another guy.. shes so young, pretty and getting really famous than Him.. I’m sure Hawick feels threatened with guy such as Nic Tse.. who doesn’t want this young and newly bachelor??

        • advo says:

          “The way he had his arm around YM…”

          They were posing exactly how even non-couple celebs have posed. Honestly. And how should we interpret her arm on his back later? She’s marking her territory?

        • advo says:

          @ Veejah

          Uhm me? Never got the appeal of Nic Tse but beyond that, his family is messed up, his ex-wife may or may not still be in the picture and he has two young children!

          YM is young and getting famous… but will the hype last?

        • Fox says:

          Both of Bernice’s ex-es found new love and coincidentally, both loves are being considered as public stunt. Fate?

        • Cloud says:

          Hawick does not have to worry about Nic since he:s not interested in her. If he did he would’ve taken the oppty when they were filming together. Hawick should worry about other lusty men out there.

        • advo says:

          @ Cloud

          How do you know he didn’t and she rejected his advances? Is Nic so appealing that any woman – even someone who’s in a happy relationship would drop her BF at any chance to be with NIc?

        • Cloud says:

          How do I know? By the way she gushes about him on interviews. Maybe she should have kept her admiration in secret and not revealed it to the public, and these crazy rumors woud’t have sprouted. No. I don’t think any girl would fall for Nic as I don’t think he’s that appealing. He seems like the boring type…

        • claimine says:

          Cloud:He seems like the boring type In your opinion, what type of men are not boring?

        • advo says:

          @ Cloud

          Gushing over a co-star = infatuation? They are actors, sometimes they ~act for promotional reasons. TBH, I haven’t the foggiest clue if YM is happy with Hawick, if YM liked Nic, if Nic didn’t like her etc. etc. It might all be true, but I find that people conjecture A LOT out of the flimsiest things.

        • Cloud says:

          So says Charlene, Miriam and his other female friends. They complain that he’s boring, so I take it that he is the boring type.

        • Fox says:

          Lolz, what in Hawick can’t compete with Nic :P?

    9. advo says:

      Well, now I understand why Chinese celebs are so hush hush regarding their love life. If you’re out then people will speculate endlessly about when you’re breaking up!

      • Fox says:

        But if they hide the love, there are ppl who will call them liars.

        • advo says:

          Only if they actually lied. Sometimes they play coy too.

        • Fox says:

          Hide the love = liar and of course, lied. If telling the truth, they have to announce their love to public from day 1.

        • advo says:

          @ Fox

          I don’t know if you are speaking in general or your own opinion.

          Regardless, I disagree. The exception is marriage. Hiding your marriage is shady to me.

        • Fox says:

          I say in general. I have no problem with whoever (artists) hide/lie about their love or marriage. I understand why they have to do such thing.
