Guess who was recently spotted holding hands and having an intimate dinner together with friends? Qin Junjie and Love and Redemption‘s Hou Mengyao are currently filming their drama Legend of Yaoxiang (lit) 瑤象傳奇 which started last September. And when the pair was papped spending some quality time together outside of work, you can bet the rumour mill has been working overtime to confirm their dating status .. most especially since Qin Junjie’s last public relationship was with actress Yang Zi and that break-up happened two years ago already!
According to media reports, the two co-stars showed up together for a dinner out with friends. They were both acting quite affectionately towards each other the entire evening and Qin Junjie was said to have spent most of his time chatting with Hou Mengyao and making her laugh. Afterwards, both actors drove off together in the same car.
The next night, the pair was once again photographed walking with their hands intertwined and constantly smiling at each other looking quite sweet. Just like the previous evening, Qin Junjie kept saying things that made Hou Mengyao laugh. Later, the couple were seen going into the same house together.
Call it the propinquity effect if you want but honestly, actors who end up (possibly) dating each other after working closely together for a project isn’t entirely surprising. Just look at Lin Gengxin and Ge Yuexi who are also co-stars in the drama To Love. Although they have yet to confirm it, dating rumours were buzzing after they were spotted acting very affectionately towards each other whilst also out for dinner with friends recently.
