A new collab is in the works between four time co-stars Xiao Zhao and Li Qin who will be taking us all back in time with the retro themed drama Where Dreams Begin 梦中的那片海. Harking back to Beijing in the 70s, the series highlights the struggles young people faced whilst chasing their dreams and growing up during the Cultural Revolution. Oh, and before anyone says something about the pair dating once again, Xiao Zhan’s anti fake team has also gone ahead to reaffirm today that Xiao Zhan and Li Qin are not together by stamping the word “Fake” on dating rumors .
Still Not Dating
Remember the time when Li Qin Studio issued a statement saying Li Qin was single and that any rumours speculating about her romance, marriage or pregnancy are all false? Last year, romance speculation once again cropped up after the actress was spotted having dinner with him and the rest of the crew following his stint playing “patient no. 5” in the play A Dream Like A Dream. Li Qin as well as their The Wolf castmate Zang Hongna both came together to support their friend in the play, but alas folks chose to speculate once again whether Xiao Zhan and Li Qin were dating. Nonetheless, this was also debunked by Xiao Zhan’s Anti Fake Team.
Prior to this latest series, the pair have already collaborated four times in Battle Through the Heavens, Joy of Life, The Wolf and Jade Dynasty. In all four, it has always either been zero connection between their characters or a case of unrequited love . Maybe this time though, fifth time’s the charm? Perhaps audiences will finally get the romance they’ve all been waiting for albeit an on-screen one?
Where Dreams Begin also stars Wayne Liu Ruilin, Cao Feiran, Zhao Xin, Cui Hang, Zhang Lingxin and Lenox Lu.
Even if they date, that’s not anyone’s business. Also, they would make a cute couple.
Who cares whether they are dating or not? Just give us good acting. Especially Li Qin. Her career can’t last long by just being pretty.
It’s funny you say this when her career is completing 12 years old this year. She started in 2010 and she is still working in 2022. I’m sure she won’t retire while still receiving scripts and job offers.
Her acting is not impressive but she is not a bad actress at all.
I feel LQ projects are getting bigger but her acting is either stagnant or not getting better. I think her best acting with real emotions was in some few old modern dramas many years ago..she’s still pretty though
Her best acting was in the autism drama, very old drama..she’s still raw but so natural and badass, so strong but miserable
Whether or not Xiao Zhan is dating Li Qin is not news. They are grown consenting adults who are apparently unattached. Who cares if they date? Of bigger concern to me is the quality of Li Qin’s acting. I have never been able to finish a drama of hers of which she starred in a lead role, and I have never been able to put my finger on the reason why. She’s good looking , and obviously a decent actress, but she is unable to sustain my interest beyond the first 10 -15 episodes. I tend to avoid her dramas like the plague and I’m sad I’m going to miss this one as well. I kind of question why in C-dramaland, there are some actor/actresses combinations that tend to be repetitive even though there are a plethora of C-stars out there. Is it because of agency restrictions or because the actors are comfortable working together? I’m yet to see XZ in a project with an A-list actress, and I think it would be good for his career to work with more established actresses (not referring to LQ, more to his costars in Ace Troops, DC, The Longest Promise). Not that he really needs it, as he is making waves all of his own. Wishing them the best in their respective careers.
