Former UNINE member and actor, Chen Youwei (陈宥维), and actress, Wang Churan (王楚然), were involved in dating rumors on December 31 when paparazzi released a clip of them together. According to this paparazzo, Chen Youwei was seen heading to Wang Churan’s home upon his arrival in Beijing on December 24. Afterwards, Chen Youwei, Wang Churan, and another male friend were seen dining together, later seen going back to Wang Churan’s home. The paparazzo claims Chen Youwei left Wang Churan’s home by himself the next day.
However, the rumors were quickly dismissed by Chen Youwei and Wang Churan’s respective studios. On December 31, both artists’ studios denied the dating rumors. Wang Churan’s studio said, “The artist is currently single. Friends that haven’t seen each other a long time had a gathering. Please don’t over-analyze it. Wishing everyone a happy new year’s eve.” Chen Youwei’s studio said, “The artist is currently single. Just a couple of friends gathering together. Hope everyone doesn’t over-analyze it.”
Chen Youwei and Wang Churan met in 2020 while partnered up in a reenactment of a scene from “Eternal Love” on the Tencent variety show, “Everybody Stand By 2”(演员请就位2).
Wang Churan was previously rumored with her co-star, Wang Ziqi (王子奇), from the yet to air series, “The Longest Promise” (玉骨遥), back in June. They were reportedly spotted holding hands in the streets. Wang Churan’s manager had posted at the time, “Beautiful alone”, hinting that Wang Churan was single.
