On the third episode of the 7 questions series, “Ai Si Bu Si” (爱思不si), Xiao Zhan (肖战) gets candid about his outlook on dating and relationships. The host starts off saying Xiao Zhan is a very rational person and someone who holds himself to high standards. She then says, “Us rational people understand that if we gain something, we must lose something, so did you lose out on a lot of things?” Xiao Zhan answers yes. The host then uses this opportunity to start talking about relationships.
Xiao Zhan debuted at a later age than most people. As he is 28 years old this year, he is often asked about being rushed to get married by his parents. Xiao Zhan shared that his parents used to directly ask when he would start finding someone. Now, they go about it in a roundabout way to ask him when he’ll bring a girlfriend home. Even then, Xiao Zhan says he has never thought about marriage because he doesn’t have time to think about it and secondly, he hasn’t considered that aspect at all.
Announcing his relationship
The host then directly asks him if he would announce his relationship if he was dating, which Xiao Zhan says yes. Even when the host asks him, “Don’t you think it will affect your career?”, Xiao Zhan responds, “That’s why I have to be careful. But if you’re talking about happiness…I think if there is a time where a lot of people admire me, and I were to announce it, it wouldn’t be good for that person. It would hurt her.”
The host then says, “It’s not possible for you not to date forever.”. Xiao Zhan responds, “That’s also possible.” and starts talking about how there are idols who set very strict guidelines for themselves not to date.
Love at first sight
When the hosts asks if a person suddenly shows up in his life unplanned and he has feelings for her, would he start dating, Xiao Zhan responds, “Wow, is this a storyline from an idol drama? Because I’ve never encountered it before, so I don’t really believe in love at first sight. If I see a really beautiful girl, I wouldn’t even know what to say.”
The host then jokingly says, “No wonder we chat so well together.”, implying she’s not pretty. Xiao Zhan then says, “How so? I was really nervous when I first saw Weiwei jie.” The host then says, “That’s because I am pretty mean. You don’t have to console me. I can keep it together.”
