Nineteen-year-old actress Jelly Lin (林允) splashed into the entertainment industry with her acting debut in The Mermaid <美人魚>, which soared to the top of the box office during the Chinese New Year holiday season. Since then, Jelly has further made waves among viewers and fans, thanks to rumors that she is dating 37-year-old actor William Feng (馮紹峰).
A few days ago, Jelly posted a photograph of her cooking for a family reunion meal. However, she quickly deleted the picture after sharp-eyed netizens pointed out that the background of her kitchen strongly resembled that of William’s house. As a result, rumors began to spread that Jelly and William were dating – a suspicion that only intensified when a photograph surfaced yesterday of the two walking around and holding hands.
Today, Jelly also posted a photo on her Weibo, depicting herself with an enormous bouquet of roses. “This is the first time I have ever received so many Valentine’s Day roses, thank you,” she wrote. “In the fairy tale, the mermaid is willing to step on the point of a knife in order to gain two legs. It’s just like the feeling in real life when you step barefoot into a thicket of roses.”
After seeing Jelly’s radiant expression, many netizens surmised that she is currently in a happy relationship with a special person.
William previously dated 27-year-old actress Ni Ni (倪妮), who is most well-known for starring in the 2011 Zhang Yimou (張藝謀) film The Flowers of War <金陵十三釵>. However, the two announced their breakup in May 2015.
