Huanyu Film Shoots Down Rumors That Xu Kai and Bai Lu Are Dating and Living Together

How many dramas have Xu Kai and Bai Lu been in together? Excluding the obvious ones like The Legends and Arsenal Military Academy, they also had smaller roles in Untouchable Lovers. The two are also part of the fantasy drama Zhao Ge which has yet to air despite wrapping in early 2017. That's four dramas in total on top of past dating rumors that have plagued the two! 

Recently, paparazzi spotted Xu Kai's assistant driving to Bai Lu's neighborhood to pick Xu Kai up for work. Not long after, Bai Lu was spotted at the same basement and getting into another car. Netizens have put two and two together to assume that Xu Kai and Bai Lu were living together.

As both are from the same company, their agency Huanyu Film has released a statement to address the rumors regarding their artists Xu Kai and Bai Lu. According to them: 
1. The rumors that Xu Kai and Bai Lu are dating and cohabiting are false; 
2. With regards to the few media and marketing accounts (yingxiaohao) that are reporting their subjective speculation as news and forcing their ideas on the artists and their agency, Huanyu Film condemns these actions and reserves the right to take legal action.

Okay, I have to admit. I've loved this couple ever since The Legends and have watched their every drama together since then. However, it seems that the whole business behind fan shipping can be quite toxic as there have been bashing on both sides depending on whether you're an exclusive Xu Kai fan, Bai Lu fan or a fan of their couple pairing. Back in January, Xu Kai had unfollowed Bai Lu on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo and she had done the same shortly after.

Not sure what's going on but hearing this made me a little sad. Producer Yu Zheng had previously announced that the two will be reuniting as an onscreen couple for the historical drama Shang Shi. Yu Zheng who's their boss also has a reputation for being their biggest shipper since he basically declared that he will continue to put them together in projects no matter what anyone says. Oh well, I can do what any respectable fan should do and support Xu Kai and Bai Lu individually but it would be nice have that one more drama together.

  1. Aw why would you be sad? It's not like they cancelled their next project together. Plus don't fans know that all this toxic shipping is just going to make their platonic friendship (which I assume they have bc same company, drama,etc) super awkward. I seriously don't think they ever dated, fans are seriously grasping straws here. Heck they were never even pictured on a date, just a bunch of coincidences that can just be attributed to them being colleagues under the same company

    1. oh it's because I feel like the toxic shipping may have made things awkward already since they've unfollowed each other and i wonder what that means for their next drama together. Is it still happening?

    2. I'm sure it is still happening. I don't think they've started filming yet. They'll probably start filming at the end of 2020 cus Bai lu and xu Kai are busy with wangluochun and the video game drama with Cheng xiao.

  2. I'm glad there's finally an official statement addressing their rumors. Fan speculations can go overboard. I even find some shipper's theories embarrassing to read. I just hope they're still good friends after all this.

  3. I just hope the speculations won't affect their friendship and personal lives. Unfortunately fans have resulted as one of the reasons celeb couples break up or get divorced cause the fame / shipping / bullying etc. become too much for them to handle.

  4. I really like them together in drama but for real life.. let them choose their partner privately. If they choose each other, let them happy. Let it be their private secret. But i can't wait for their next drama together.

  5. I honestly appreciate their talents and crafts as actors and support their individual work. They do have amazing chemistry and I like their relationship on-screen, but to attribute that passion off-screen is asking too much. I never thought they dated IRL, many fans are serious shippers (many have devoted Youtube Channels among other outlets) and believed they have always been dating... on mere speculation, deeming it true, which has hurt both artists because of solo stans and what not. It sucks because they do get along well, and all the drama could have soured a good friendship. I'm glad the company came out and said that they weren't dating just to knock off the haters and toxic shippers.

  6. I don't care if they are dating or not. It is their life. But I truly would like to see them together again since their chemistry is no joke.
