Li Hongyi Criticized for “Disrespectful” Behavior Towards Zhao Lusi

Zhao Lusi (趙露思) shot to stardom after consecutive hits Love Like the Galaxy <星漢燦爛> and Hidden Love <偷偷藏不住>. Her recent drama The Last Immortal <神隱> with Wang Anyu (王安宇) has also been receiving high viewership. Frequently rumored with her costars due to their believable chemistry, Zhao Lusi has kept her dating life under tight wraps but many believe she had dated former costar Li Hongyi (李宏毅).

Yesterday, a clip of Zhao Lusi and Li Hongyi was leaked on the Internet. While eating hot pot together, Zhao Lusi’s hand was placed on Li Hongyi’s thigh. The actor’s hand moved to Zhao Lusi’s back and pulled at the back of her bra strap. Li Hongyi only stopped after Zhao Lusi repeatedly swatted him away in annoyance.

The pair was rumored to have dated five years ago and had worked together twice. First in 2019’s Prodigy Healer <青囊傳> and then in Love Better Than Immortality <天雷一部之春花秋月>. The paparazzi had caught them behaving intimately during the filming of Prodigy Healer. The hot pot clip was taken when Love Better Than Immortality was airing. In the latter half of that year, the paparazzi had unearthed evidence that pointed to trouble in paradise. They had both posted at the same time on social media sounding very down, and the content of their post hinted at their breakup.

The hot pot clip surfacing yesterday ignited a fight among Zhao Lusi and Li Hongyi’s fans. The actress’ fans accused Li Hongyi of using Zhao Lusi to promote the second season of The Blood of Youth 2 <少年歌行 2>, which is about to start filming. His fans accused her of using him to promote the currently airing The Last Immortal. Many netizens also criticized Li Hongyi for public sexual harassment and not respecting women.

Li Hongyi’s agency tried to downplay the discussions and replied with “this is so boring” regarding the news.
