iQiYi Scream Night 2019 was held last night on Dec 1, 2018. An awards show hosted by a streaming media service may be far from being the most esteemed, but the event came together with all the glitz and glamour of c-ent. Many attendees went onstage to accept their awards and off-stage interactions also became trending topics.
To start, Kris Wu and Luhan who were formerly members of the boy band EXO were seated on the same table. Ever since they left the band one after the other and returned to China to pursue solo activities, interactions between then were sparse and far between (though they do exist, if you know where to look).
Whoever’s in charge of the seating plan is a genius, allowing the two a chance to reconnect in the public eye. The moment though lasting less than a minute still put a smile on my face (see video).
Yu Zheng is like the proud father of Story of Yanxi Palace as he attended with the cast that includes Nie Yuan, Charmaine Sheh, Qin Lan, Wu Jinyan, Xu Kai, Su Qing and Wang Yuanke. Bai Lu also joined in for the pictures.
Story of Yanxi Palace took home many awards. While posing for the group photo, Yu Zheng joked that he is not the eunuch but the crown prince.
Actor Hu Xianxu and singer Chen Linong are friends from the iQiYi reality show Hi Housemate.
The two same-age buddies born in 2000 chatted the night away at iQiYi Scream Night despite being seated at different tables. They even shared a handshake before Hu Xianxu took the stage to accept his award.
NINE PERCENT members performed onstage and brought home Group of the Year, Variety Show of the Year and Scream Boy Band. The nine members were complete – Cai Xukun, Chen Linong, Fan Chengcheng, Justin Huang Minghao, Lin Yanjun, Zhu Zhengyan, Wang Ziyi, Xiao Gui – Wang Linkai and You Zhangjing.
