Yang Mi Yearns for Love Every Day

Since her divorce in 2018, Yang Mi (楊冪) has been focusing on work and spends her free time visiting her daughter in Hong Kong. Aside from attracting attention on her projects, her love life is also often discussed. Last year, Yang Mi was said to have broken up with actor Wei Daxun (魏大勋). While the 35-year-old gave no responses to these rumors, she did candidly share in her recent magazine interview that she looks forward to a new relationship.

Yang Mi said, “I look forward to love, every day in fact. But I don’t really put much effort into it, so I don’t know if it’s even worth looking forward to. I always feel like if you make it too deliberate and fail to let it flow naturally, then the love may change its flavor.”

When asked about her thoughts on portraying the devoted Haishi in Novoland: Pearl Eclipse <斛珠夫人>, Yang Mi expressed, “It was a role I really wanted to try playing, because there is no character like her who could love someone in such a heartbreaking manner. She is interesting yet challenging, because I was able to learn and experience how to actively pursue someone. I am a very passive person when it comes to love, so it was refreshing to feel what it’s like to fall for a person so deeply.”

Open to a new romance, Yang Mi seemingly shows her readiness in her latest appearance as  a global ambassador at a beauty brand press conference in Sanya. A fashion icon, the actress continues to enchant many with her elegant beauty.

  1. She might just have to find someone extremely patient with her career and daughter, as successful as her, and not culturally restricted with their thoughts on marriage. To me, that doesn’t sound like a Chinese actor or man or not someone she can find in China. I find her pretty, successful/talented, and to a certain degree, perhaps too logical.

    1. I agree with you and she sounds lonely and wants a companion. Many may have lots of money and success but are very depressed and lonely on the inside. I think you are right and maybe she needs someone who is not Chinese nor is an actor. She needs to be open and she may want love but she needs to be able replicate that love to the other person too. Love is a 2 way street. If she only wants to have love but not give it back then she will not find anyone and is being unrealistic. She is better off being single if that is the case.

      1. People tend to make it sound as if Yang Mi only wants money and success. How come that’s not how others are perceived too? Like Hawick Lau? I believe she decided to become a shareholder of Jaywalk after marriage because she can’t act forever, she just need a backup plan. What is wrong with that? Maybe you think she is so rich she can just retire and not work but spend all her money. Rich people don’t spend money the way ordinary spend, they all need a continuous job. She gave birth on June 2014. People always act like Hawick Lau slow down his career for his family when he did not either.

        They both were working without taking care of their child, the same. Is she expected to stay home and not work but only men can work? I don’t know what 2 way street you’re saying because her partner wasn’t giving her that 2 way street in the past either. When she was still married, unlike some other “admirable” actress that wouldn’t say anything to protect her own self, Yang Mi actually always speaks up to protect him and her family regardless of what others will think of her. Is that really not reciprocating? After the divorce, well hello, it’s a divorce, meaning you go separate ways… so she isn’t reciprocating anymore and that’s the right thing. What are people expecting? Hunt down her ex-husband every day, accuse him on the internet of being a momma’s boy that didn’t protect her, so she divorced him? Make the internet praise her how she visits the child every day and face her ex-husband all the time like they’re still married? Then why divorce?

        YM lets bygones be bygones. Is a divorce supposed to be a really beautiful thing? Once both parties divorce, one of the parties have to give up. Don’t make the child become a competition about who can save more face.

        If Yang Mi doesn’t reciprocate love, she can just use her child as a tool to redeem herself and gain love from netizens. Even if it means making the child’s life hellish. For years, she allows the media and netizens ridicule her instead, she rather not ruins the child for her sake.
        Letting go can be harder than you think, she already chose to let go and suffer in loneliness, and on top of that, have people ridicule her. What more do people want?

        She knew wasn’t really there for the child since the beginning, the child is already used to that. After divorcing, and the custody already goes to him, she needs to SUDDENLY show up in the child’s world every day? Shamelessly fight for the child as if she can do better than the grandparents, replace them, and as if she has all the rights? How much shamelessness does that require? It may look like she is the unreciprocating mother on the outside, but her actions are right. Any child with divorce parents will hate to see their parents fight for them if they were never there in the first place. Plus, it’s not like they will fight because they regret or want to make it up, they just want to save face, that’s double ouch! People say Yang Mi is smart with a high EQ, I have to agree, she made the right decision not to disturb the child. If she needed to be the stay home from the beginning, please say that to other actresses too. From what I know, they are known to be very “admirable” for being busy right after giving birth. This is just the normal life of rich people. For rich people, if they don’t divorce, they still won’t really be there in the child’s life and hang out. All rich people do is spoil children a lavish lifestyle. Who knows what Yang Mi was thinking when she founded Jaywalk, maybe her family was her motivation to make so much money and she wanted to spend on them? But the divorce was unpredictable. Can you imagine trying to go make money somewhere far for your family, when you return it turns out there’s no one to spend on because your partner cheated, and a divorce must happen?

        If money makes her happy, she would have left Hawick Lau and just marry Feng Shao Feng, even if Feng Shao Feng divorces her, she can get half of his asset. She once married Hawick Lau because she was once in love. Just because her first marriage didn’t work out doesn’t mean she is so unreciprocating and should be left alone.

    1. It’s none of our business but I find it very unfortunate that she’s always view very selfish (loves herself too much), instead of being view as a role model, inspiration, admirable… etc. I guess Hawick Lau was caught in a cheating scandal but if this is a YM problem, she should just suck it up to him for the children sake, don’t divorce like Li Jinglei. The only reasons qualifiable for Yang Mi to divorce is because she’s too full of herself and prefers her career and money. EVERYONE knows more than Yang Mi herself, there is no other marital problems other than she is greedy. Netizens can have double faces, but their advices and opinions are the fairest.

      1. There are reports the infidelity started from her first….who is to know what is true.. I am not judging her based on her ex marriage and her relationship with her daughter… My comment is based on her own admission. She does not want any relationship that require hard work…and she puts her career ahead..etc. Thus not a bad judgement, she knows what she wants…Which I feel is very mature and responsible. To be honest, I know many Professional women with financial independence are similar.. And they rightful admit so.. Yang Mi is such… It is not a fault but a fact.

      2. I personally don’t get why everyone thinks she’s selfish. She may not be a good mom or wife, but everyone makes different choices in life, some pick love, some pick family, some pick career. Picking your career over family or love doesn’t make one selfish. I actually kinda like her personality cuz she doesn’t go with the flow, she has her own ideas and doesn’t care what others say.

        As for infidelity, I actually don’t think either of them cheated, but only they themselves know. YM had rumors with Li Yifeng but that’s only bc she was filming on-set with him, it’s not like they met off-set. As for hawick, he stayed in another actress’s room overnight, but who knows what they were doing in there. I just felt like hawick’s scandal had a bigger effect on ym bc once the news came out she was stuck in the airport for a couple of hours and didn’t even go on stage to accept an award lol.

      3. @hohliu Talking about her flirting news? Yeah Yeah, all married artists do that too. I don’t know if Jayne will be willing to publish my comment if I ask why they didn’t write about the others, for example when Zhao Liying was still married she flirted by putting her spoon into Wang Yibo’s soup so they share saliva during covid and she copied his signature necklace he was wearing for years. The problem is Yang Mi was not caught with evidence, it’s not easy to make such strong accusations. Even with evidence, the evidence needs to be legitimate. For example, tabloids said Feng Shaofeng cheated and the evidence was only text messages created though apps anyone can make. I feel so sorry for Yang Mi because she wasn’t smart enough to act depress and avoid staying close to any men while still married, she should wait until she divorces then she can celebrate birthdays with men and make cute pouting faces for them when she never does that with her ex-husband.

      4. @ay789 I’m not sure either why, if it’s others, they are Professional women with financial independence. Some people say Yang Mi does not want any relationship that require hard work, but how come when she dated Hawick Lau she was willing to go on public? She was willing to star in many of his shows or productions without bullying his acting and his less popular status? Dating several years before marrying, it is not surprising if she gets pregnant. She properly married into Hawick Lau’s family, she worked hard to have a family ready for her future child. I don’t know about y’all but some other Professional women got pregnant out of the blue and nobody knows who her boyfriend was, she suddenly announced the marriage and broke Weibo to avoid criticisms, personally said fans can go have diarrhea if they believe her pregnancy rumors, few months later gave birth and never properly did the ceremony, looked very depress during marriage, leaked news of her husband cheating with lame evidence then changed profile picture to hint her anger unlike Yang Mi who said she has faith in Hawick Lau when interviewed about his scandal (YM really doesn’t work for her relationship), divorced the man and now the media accuses him being a momma’s boy. Yang Mi is not a good mother but if I have to choose a divorced mother in the entertainment circle, Yang Mi is not a bad choice at all. Maybe she no longer wants to work hard for love anymore because she already did that in the past, hate that but walk a mile in their shoes first.

      5. I always felt Yang Mi is too career oriented. People like that in general are better off being either single or just being in a relationship or just married with no children. But maybe as she gets older, she is getting lonely and wants a companion to keep her company as money cannot really do that for her.

    2. Actually your opinion seems to be based on your perception of her past relationship because it’s not in line with what she said. She didn’t say she wasn’t willing to put in the effort to reciprocate love in a relationship, she said she wouldn’t put in much effort to “look for love”. Not because she loves herself a lot and wants to put her career ahead, but because she believes in love that comes naturally. There’s more to life than being in a romantic relationship a love interest should only be someone that accompanies you through life not someone to wait for. It’s a sentiment I relate with. As a woman that was very much in love in her first marriage and went through an unexpected divorce she now realizes how devastating it is to pin your happiness and life on one person. It’s something inspiring she has said but as usual many people have interpreted it based on their bias against her which is very sad. Many young women need to understand this. Yang Mi is generally very experienced and strong willed and doesn’t live in the eyes of others, she has made mistakes and encountered many problems but the most important thing is not to lose sight of who you are.
