Stars on the set, including He Jiong (何炅), Huang Lei (黃磊) and Zhang Zifeng (張子楓) were amused by the pajama coincidence. Huang Lei spontaneously tried to match make Lay, “You’re already 30 right? It’s time for marriage. Yang Zi has no boyfriend either–your one-year age gap is pretty suitable, on top of the swirling rumors and matching pajamas.” Viewers laughed raucously and commented on the hilarity of the two, praising the stars for their candor.
Besides Lay teasing the rumors by calling Yang Zi his “rumored girlfriend,” the two responded to the rumors while filming Back to the Field, proving their self-declared relationship as friends and nothing more.
