Fans are still recovering from the Fast Track episodes Tencent released on August 9 for the hit drama, “You Are My Glory” (你是我的荣耀). Even though fans are trying to refrain from spoiling themselves, it can’t be helped when the series trends with multiple hashtags on Weibo almost every day. It also doesn’t help fans from shipping Dilraba (迪丽热巴) and Yang Yang (杨洋) when they do such a convincing and fantastic job promoting the series.
On August 11, Dilraba and Yang Yang updated Weibo at 7:30 pm. They posted each other’s childhood pictures holding up the ubiquitous Asian “yeah” hand sign also known as the victory or peace sign in other parts of the world.
Dilraba posted: “Yu-laoshi, let’s give a yeah together!”, tagging Yang Yang.
Yang Yang posted: “Classmate Jingjing, let’s give a yeah together!”, tagging Dilraba.
Based on some of the comments from fans and (us), they also couldn’t help but ship Dilraba and Yang Yang despite knowing these are standard promotional tactics for C-Dramas.
Some fans also found the pictures to be reminiscent of another fan favorite celebrity couple, Tiffany Tang Yan and Luo Jin, when they merged their childhood pictures and announced they were dating.
We at 38jiejie.com have also gotten a little carried away with the shipping of our “YangDi” couple.
