On the night of Dec. 22, power couple Yang Mi and Hawick Lau announced their divorce through a statement from Jaywalk Studio. In the 2017 Forbes China Celebrity List, both Yang Mi and Hawick Lau made it to the top 100. Yang Mi was the third highest with a revenue reaching 200 million yuan, while Hawick Lau ranked 76th with a revenue of 75 million yuan. The couple had a combined annual income of 275 million yuan.
Aside from being a famous and bankable actress with multiple drama series & movies to her name, Yang Mi is also a well-known shareholder of Jaywalk Studio, a company engaged in television, production, planning, distribution and talent promotions. Based on details from Tianyacha, she also has 8 other companies under her name including Shanghai Yang Mi Film & Television Studio and Shanghai Yang Mi Cultural Media Center. Out of these, 2 have closed, 4 have Yang Mi as their legal representative while she’s an executive in 6 of them.
Jaywalk Studio may have suffered setbacks in the past year, but it remains to be a talent driven company. In October, Jaywalk officially established Jaywalk Newjoy, a subsidiary focused on grooming idols starting with 25 new artists. Dilraba Dilmurat, also managed by Jaywalk Studio, has grown her career by leaps and bounds, reportedly bringing in earnings over a 100 million and ranking among the top product endorsers in 2017. Talent management fees make up almost half of the company’s earnings.
The monetary consequences of Yang Mi’s divorce remain to be seen but suffice to say, it looks like Yang Mi will be able to hold her own in the foreseeable future. She has the brains and the beauty to ensure her staying power in both the silver screen and business.
Well she doesnt need his money from the beginning. She was already an allrounder before meeting him.
Well duh… yang mi helped build jaywalk on her own, Yang Mi only need herself to climb up, lets not confuse her with people who need their spouse to be successful
That's hardly surprising. She was a bigger star and richer than him before their marriage and has gone on to become even more successful and even richer since from her own hard work. If anything, she has helped his career.
Hmm. IMO, Yang Mi was a rising star while Hawick has established himself in China after leaving TVB. He was the more popular star when they dated. Of course, it has changed since they gotten married. He lost his appeal while she sacrificed family time to make up lost time.
Do you seriously think that hawick was more popular than Yang Mi when they were dating？ please write something based on facts, would you.
It’s not a surprise here when she’s been working so much. That pregnancy was unplanned, which led to lightning marriage. I wonder if she ever regrets the whole ordeal since she lost out on opportunities. Eh
Pregnancy didn't slow Yang Mi down in the slightest
in fact it endeared her to meany because it made her human and more relatable as a person
thus increasing her popularity
Yang Mi was definitely the bigger star when they were dating. She has only gotten even more popular, esp after Eternal Love, whereas Hawick have not had much significant work the last few years.
LOL you’re really reaching if you think Hawick Lau was the bigger star in China compared to Yang Mi. If we compare their credits before and during getting married in 2013.
Yang Mi was well known and had mega hits like Chinese Paladin 3 (2009), Palace (2011), Beijing Love story (2012). Movies horror movie Mysterious Island (2011), and Tiny Times movie series (2013).
Hawick Lau has Sealed with a Kiss(2009)and Clear Midsummers Dream (2011). That’s all of his “hit dramas”, well that I’ve heard of anyway.
He was collectively known as Lau Dans son and dating Yang Mi.
Realistically, everyone knew it was a shotgun marriage. They tried to do the right thing and be parents to their baby. But it didn’t work and as long as they have a good relationship and focus on being good parents, I don’t see why both careers, especially YM, can’t continue to be successful etc. YM has always been extremely a hard worker, has a keen eye and good professional network in selecting projects. I don’t see her career being negatively impacted if she focuses on quality work.
I have to say i saw huwak taking his daughter i think for her first day at kindergarden… He seeems there for his child.. I thunk yang mi is way busy to be a family women while huwak not that much… They made choices which are way diffrent… And i think yani mi is not a match for him.. They are just different people.. I thunk huwak is a good person and talented actor with respected talent.. Not how much money that matter as an artist
Don't regard him so high when you know so little about him, even his name you don't even know it s not Huwak but Hawick. He is also like Yang Mi, doesn't want to slow down his career. He tried really hard to get famous and did so many dramas that all failed so in the end he had no choice but to take care of his child. How can he be so good that she does not match him? He wanted fame. He married her and go famous for that, it is him who did not match her.
