Highlights and Other Trivia:

During the red carpet gala, we've seen drama stars walk in pairs but some of them are pairings we have not yet seen in a drama together as CP. So we're wondering if they have upcoming projects together.

  • Deng Wei and Jing Tian
  • Zhang Linghe and Tian Xiwei
  • Zhou Yiran and Zhang Jingye
  • Johnny Huang and Tong Yao
  • Chen Zheyuan and Bai Lu

Zhou Ye and Cheng Lei

The only pairs we know who have projects together are Zhou Ye and Cheng Lei, they are currently filming The Legend of a Female General. Lin Yi and Liu Hao Cun just paired in Derailment.

Zhang Jingyi and Chen Duling

We love the natural interaction of Wu Lei and Dilraba off camera on stage. They paired in The Long Ballad in 2021 and have been friends for years.

The way Wu Lei helped Dilraba carrying her trophy when he saw her struggling to pull her gown was such a sweet thing to say. Which means they maintained a warm close friendship bond after their drama went off air.

Wu Lei has been very consistent the way he shows care to Dilraba down through all these years, may it be on camera or off camera, which is rare in Chinese drama industry. 

Celebrities  are always wary in getting cozy with their on-screen partners outside filming or promotion because fans can be very obsessed with their ships. Wu Lei and Dilraba don't have obsessed shippers which allow them to interact comfortably in public. 

Weibo King and Queen

We did not expect Zhu Yilong to win Weibo's King of the Year! In the past weeks, Weibo ran a survey for netizens to choose who would be King of the Year. 

Deng Wei, Cheng Yi, and Xiao Zhan were the three actors with the highest votes. Since China's award-giving bodies never hand out awards to recipients who did not attend, we expected Deng Wei to be named Weibo's King of the Year since Cheng Yi did not attend.

But well, maybe Weibo has a different method for finalizing the winners. Congratulations to Zhu Yilong and Yang Zi!
