The success of C-drama You Are My Glory <你是我的榮耀> boosted the popularity of its lead actors Dilraba Dilmurat (迪麗熱巴) and Yang Yang (楊洋). With their sizzling onscreen chemistry, fans of both idols are hoping they could become a pair in real life. The stars’ recent social updates which had similar backgrounds fueled rumors that they might be dating for real!
Testing Waters or Sleek Publicity Move?
With their sweet-as-saccharine romantic arc in You Are My Glory, and the two leads’ cosy interactions offscreen to drum up hype for the drama, fans are shipping the pair and would love to see the stars take their romance offscreen. Recently, Yang Yang and Dilraba Dilmurat both posted meal updates on their socials, and sharp-eyed fans quickly saw that their photo backgrounds looked so similar as to be taken at the same place, except from different angles.
Fan reactions have been split into two camps so far – with the first group of the opinion that the two stars are indeed secretly dating, and are trying to “test the waters” by dropping visual hints for fans, before any public announcement.
However, some skeptical fans guessed it was more likely that Dilmurat and Yang Yang had been at the same work location, and had deliberately posted photos with similar backgrounds to create buzz for an upcoming onscreen collaboration. Their reasoning? That the two popular idols were more likely to keep their romance under wraps, if they were indeed dating!
