Since his breakthrough role in Love Like the Galaxy, Leo Wu Lei has become a constant trending subject on social media. Many fans wonder if he is dating anyone, with rumored girlfriends ranging from Zhao Lusi to Julia Xiang Hanzhi.
Although it has been two months since the finale of Love Like the Galaxy aired, Wu Lei and Lusi’s sweet behind-the-scenes gestures hint at something more than ordinary costars. They were seen brushing each other’s hair, touching their ears, and holding each other’s hands on the filming set. Since both are from Sichuan, they have quite a bit in common.
An insider claimed that Wu Lei and Lusi had intentions of wanting to make their dating public during the celebratory banquet of Love Like the Galaxy but halted their plans due to their rising careers.
What is clear is that viewers can not get enough of Wu Lei and Lusi. The two are reported to collaborate again–the rumored projects include modern youth romance, Oceans Time, and historical drama Love Upon Sight. In addition, actress Lulu Xuan, delighted with her performance in Who Rules the World, is said to join the cast of Love Upon Sight.
While rumors are rampantly linking Wu Lei with Lusi, others believe the actor is dating 20-year-old Julia Xiang Hanzhi, his former costar from the drama Our Times. During a live session, Wu Lei accidentally revealed his pinned chat, which appeared to be with a woman resembling Hanzhi. Netizens noticed the pair wearing the same phone case and the same jacket.
Amid the swirling speculations, Leo Wu quickly distanced himself by changing his status to “single” on his Weibo profile. Naturally, fans responded, “If you’re single, what should Lusi do?” As a result, the topic #WuLeisWeiboStatusIsSingle# became a trending topic with 140 million reads.
