Leo Wu Lei (吳磊) is making hearts flutter with his domineering, yet attentive performance in Love Like the Galaxy <月升滄海>. Although his sparks with costar Rosy Zhao Lusi (趙露思) are flying, the 22-year-old actor is rumored to be dating 20-year-old Julia Xiang Hanzhi (向涵之).
Wu Lei and Hanzhi (向涵之) had collaborated before in retro entrepreneurial drama Our Times <启航：当风起时>, although they did not play a romantic couple. It is speculated their interest for each other was sparked while on set.
Apparently, Wu Lei and Hanzhi were both found to be wearing the same top and using the same phone case and guitar model. Additionally, it was claimed Hanzhi often visited Wu Lei on his filming sets and actress Gabrielle Guan Xiaotong (關曉彤) was the one who played Cupid.
However, Wu Lei’s fan club quickly shut down the rumors and called them “ridiculous.” They even claimed Hanzhi may even want to gain more publicity since Wu Lei’s Love Like the Galaxy is such a big hit. Netizens also attempted to refute the dating rumors by pointing out that the phone case is a trending style used by many; the guitar is not the same exact model; and the top is a best-seller from a well-known brand name. Thus, they reasoned the occurrences were just coincidences.
Netizens also argued the young actors were never photographed in the same frame, so it is a stretch to claim that the two are dating. They added frustratingly, “There is an extent to chasing clout. Stop trying to create groundless rumors!” and “Wu Lei and Zhao Lusi are a highly shipped couple, so those who simply want clout can just get lost!”
More logical viewers also do not care if Wu Lei is dating, as long as he collaborates with Lusi again on another project. As both are highly compatible onscreen, fans feel it would be a shame if they do not work together again.
