Rumored to be a pair since 2019, Yang Mi (杨幂) and Wei Daxun (魏大勋) were speculated to have been co-habiting, with the two spotted leaving a condo one after another. Their social media posts indicated that they shared the same bowl of dumplings while eating at home. However, the duo are said to have already recently split, even before going official.
Low-profile Dating Did Not Sit Well With His Parents
Yang Mi and Wei Daxun’s unexpected split was supposedly due to the actor’s parents pressuring him into marriage, as they think he ought to settle down at 32 years old.
The idea of entering a second marriage understandably did not sit well with Yang Mi, as the power actress naturally prioritized her career first. Her confidence in marriage had also been shaken by her divorce with Hawick Lau (刘恺威), and their custody fight over their daughter. To worsen matters, the media often cast Yang Mi as an inadequate mother.
It was said that Wei Daxun decided to follow his parents’ suggestion and break up with Yang Mi, who had also long refused to go public with their relationship, much to his disappointment.
On his 32nd birthday in April, Wei Daxun posted his single “Later” <后来的后来>, whose melancholy song lyrics about “definitely needing to say goodbye” may have expressed his dejected feelings.
Yang Mi did not make any apparent plans to celebrate the actor’s birthday either. It was a stark contrast to a year ago when she especially flew to visit Wei Daxun at his filming set, and had speedily rushed into a camper van to avoid the gawking media. That evening, the couple had a romantic dinner and even shared an ice cream before returning to the hotel.
Wei Daxun had been a fan of Yang Mi since he was 17, and did not hide his affection for her after entering the industry, often leaving supportive, adoring comments on her social media. Sharp netizens even realized the two had been gaming online until 2 a.m. on Chinese Valentine’s Day, and it became telling when both stars promptly hung up when contacted for verification.
While Yang Mi had always been Wei Daxun’s “cup of tea,” the same could not be said for him. Yang Mi had professed to be a fan girl of Nicholas Tse (谢霆锋), who was the cool and domineering type similar to Hawick. In the past, she had a preference for someone older, with a mature aura, whereas Wei Daxun was more of the caring, pandering type.
