Chinese actor Xu Kai (許凱), whose popularity surged after starring in “Story of Yanxi Palace” (延禧攻略), was invited to the Dragon Television New Year’s Eve Countdown alongside his co-stars, Wu Jinyan (吳謹言), Nie Yuan (聶遠), and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼). After the performances were over, actresses, Bai Lu (白鹿) and Wu Jiayi (吳佳怡) were in the middle of taking selfies when Xu Kai unknowingly photobombed their selfie session. The two shooed Xu Kai away and told him to “move away” so they could continue taking selfies. Once the video of the incident went viral, many criticized the two actresses for being rude.
Bai Lu, Wu Jiayi, and Xu Kai all have the same boss, Yu Zheng, who is the creator of “Story of Yanxi Palace.” Many netizens left comments on Yu Zheng’s weibo. He replied with the following responses: “Their relationship is good. Being playful is worth all this commotion? However, they still need to be aware of their actions in public settings. I have already scolded them.”
It seems like this was taken out of proportion as Xu Kai looked lost as to what was happening. Besides, Xu Kai and Bai Lu were rumored to be dating last year when it was reported he was seen staying overnight at Bai Lu’s house.
