Zhao Liying (趙麗穎) and Wang Yibo (王一博) are facing heavy scrutiny once again. after their fandoms made headlines for fighting and causing the actress’ fan groups to be banned for misbehavior. Some believe The Legend <有翡> co-stars have been hiding their romantic relationship, and dug out four major clues hinting their close ties.
Liying’s fans sparked a huge controversy earlier when they disagreed to her rumored collaboration with Yibo on Wild Bloom <野蛮生长>, because they felt the latter would continue dragging down Liying with his raw acting skills. Some even questioned the actress if she is dating Yibo, as it would answer why she would still collaborate with him despite putting her career at risk.
Switching to detective mode, netizens pieced together possible evidence that Liying and Yibo are secretly dating. First, the stars wore the same necklace with a small bone charm, which is not surprising for Liying to wear since she was nicknamed “Little Bone” after her representative work The Journey of Flower <花千骨>, but it became suspicious when Yibo also wore the same.
In recent years, Yibo’s necklace was often spotted publicly, such as during the survival dance program The Street Dance of China <這就是街舞>, where he wrapped it around his wrist to avoid damaging it. Suggesting its significance, it was deciphered to be a token of their secret relationship.
Yibo and Liying’s intimate behavior on variety shows also prove their closeness. In one program, they chose to eat from the same bowl even when there were many bowls present, which was a strange move when Liying is known to be germophobic.
Third, their schedules often overlapped with each other in terms of dates and location during the past two and a half years. Fourth, Yibo once expressed that he prefers older women, so the 10-year age gap with Liying may not be a problem for him.
