Chinese actor, Wang Kai (王凯), shot to fame playing “Prince Jing” in the costume drama, “Nirvana in Fire” (琅琊榜). Since that series, he was quickly elevated to A-list status. Wang Kai’s private life has always been a mystery and he is rarely entangled into the gossip mill. However, Chinese paparazzi released photos today of Wang Kai and fellow actress, Angel Wang (王鸥), holding hands. The two worked on “Nirvana in Fire” and “The Disguiser” (伪装者) together.
Angel Wang might sound familiar as she was once dragged into dating rumors while filming with Hawick Lau (劉愷威) in 2016. They were caught “going over the script” in Angel Wang’s room at night for hours.
According to Sohu Entertainment, Wang Kai was dining with a bunch of friends at a restaurant in Beijing. Angel Wang was coming out of the restaurant and looked to be waving at Wang Kai. At that moment, Wang Kai, who is wearing a mouth mask and a cap, extends his hand to hold Angel Wang’s hand, which she also does in unison. It’s reported, they kept holding hands even when waving bye to their friends. Once the news was released, Wang Kai and Angel Wang quickly trended on Weibo.
However, when Sohu Entertainment reached out to Angel Wang’s manager to comment on the dating rumors, the manager said, “The two are good friends. It was a work meal.” Sina Entertainment reached out to Angel Wang and her camp denied the news. As for Wang Kai’s camp, they told Sina Entertainment, “The two are good friends. This is just a dinner gathering after the costume fitting for their new series.” As it turns out the two are collaborating again on a new series called “Hunting” (猎狐), which is set to start filming on July 17th. It’s reported after the cast and crew finished with the costume fitting, everyone went out for a meal together.
What’s fishy is both their Weibo accounts are now limited to posts within the past six months. Visitors can’t go back further to see their old posts or pictures.
