After Li Bingbing (李冰冰) and Ren Quan (任泉) watched American Dreams in China <中國合伙人> together, they were so inspired that they decided to invest in a restaurant together. They invited American Dreams star, Huang Xiaoming (黃曉明) to join them in the business venture.

Li Bingbing and Ren Quan were in Beijing for Hot No. 1’s opening ceremony last month. The restaurant specializes in spicy hotpot broths, and generated excitement with its opening due to the celebrity owners. Because of his filming commitments, Huang Xiaoming did not attend.

Li Bingbing revealed that during their university days, Ren Quan once borrowed 40,000 RMB from her to open a restaurant. Afraid that the business will go bust soon after, Li Bingbing lent him the money, without asking for any interest. To her surprise, Ren Quan’s restaurant began to make profits soon after. Confident with Ren Quan’s restaurant management skills, Li Bingbing did not hesitate in investing in his new hotpot shop.

Aside from their restaurant venture together, Li Bingbing and Ren Quan also invested in a film together. Temporarily titled, Zhang Zhen’s Stories <張震講故事>, Li Bingbing and Ren Quan will co-produce the movie together. Li Bingbing joked that Huang Xiaoming was not invited to invest in the film as a punishment for not attending the hotpot’s opening ceremony. She also revealed the earnings from the restaurant will be split equally among the three partners.

        Jayne,
        Yes, it does and I really wonder if it is only for the wealthy? I really hope that even common folks can afford it or else you really wonder his many customers they will have?

        If you can afford it it doesn’t matter if it is affordable for common folks. It does look like a high end hotpot shop. Can’t afford it? Well go to a cheaper one which I am sure more established.

    Is Ren Quan still acting? I miss watching him onscreen. I like him a lot as Gongsun Che.
