Last month, Adam Fan Chengcheng and Ouyang Nana were at the center of dating rumors after Fan Chengcheng was spotted at the airport with a new butterfly tattoo on his arm. Ouyang Nana who frequently posts about butterflies had mentioned on social media that the Korean word for “butterfly” is nabi. Her nickname happens to be “Nabi.”
Netizens began reading into the coincidences from similarities in the clothes the two stars wear and their social media posts to conclude that they must be dating. Ouyang Nana and Fan Chengcheng became good friends after starring in season two of the reality show Fourtry. They even collaborated on a song together last year.
Back in October, Fan Chengcheng’s studio was quick to deny the rumors. They explained that Fan Chengcheng got the tattoo as a remembrance for his drama Wisher. They also posted a scene from the drama showing a butterfly.
Recently, Adam Fan Chengcheng and Ouyang Nana who are both ambassadors for Givenchy appeared together again in some promos for the luxury brand. On November 10, Fan Chengcheng’s studio issued a formal statement to deny the rumors for the second time. The statement indicates that a portion of online users are creating unwarranted and malicious speculation about Fan Chengcheng and a certain female artist. Although a portion of their posts have been deleted, related information is still being disseminated. His studio has entrusted their lawyers to hold individuals accountable for violating Fan Chengcheng’s reputation rights. His studio also stresses that Fan Chengcheng is single. Ouyang Nana’s side has not commented on the matter.
