Zhu Yilong's Studio Shuts Down Rumors He's Secretly Married with a Child

Zhu Yilong (朱一龙) was trending at #1 on October 9th when rumors started going viral that he was secretly married to his college sweetheart and had a child together. These posts were written by a supposed former sasaeng fan with the intent to “expose” Zhu Yilong. She claims she used Zhu Yilong’s ID, which she bought from a scalper, to log into his ETC (Electronic Toll Collection) account to get a receipt. During the process, she alleges his account was registered with his college classmate’s phone number. She does more sleuthing and backtracking to determine that Zhu Yilong and his college classmate, Xu Zhixuan (徐子暄, orig. name Guo Xiao 郭啸), are secretly married.

The story gets spun even further, saying Zhu Yilong’s grandfather had married into his wife’s family so he changed his last name from “Pi” to his wife’s last name, “Zhu”. She also alleges Zhu Yilong and Guo Xiao have a son who was named using his grandfather’s original last name, Pi. The “proof” is a birth certificate listing “Zhu” and “Guo” as the parents’ last name, but there isn’t more concrete information to prove their identities.

Zhu Yilong’s studio issued a statement denying all the rumors.

They also instructed the violators to delete all the slanderous content, stop spreading and reposting the rumors. They will be following the matter closely and reserve the right to take legal action. The studio also reminded people to rationally chase after stars and not to follow people’s personal schedules.

  1. Someone are doing all these out of spite it seems. Ruining a perfectly good person’s reputation and for what? So what if he is truly married and wants to keep his life private? They are human beings too. They are entitled to some sort of privacy no? Zhu Yilong has always been discreet about his personal life. He did a wonderful job in his roles. Let’s just enjoy his dramas. No spreading rumours please. Karma will come get you. And please also stop bashing good actors and actresses. Get a life!

  2. I really don’t understand why people insist on making trouble for these wonderful actors/singers/entertainers who are giving us so much joy with their work.

    1. They are actors whose job is just to act and give us entertainment. Who are we to meddle with their personal affairs which is not part of their job? Grow up girls. He ain’t marrying anyone of you.
