Leo Wu Lei and Angel Zhao Jinmai recently appeared on Hello Saturday to promote their drama Amidst a Snowstorm of Love 在暴雪时分. There’re still some days before the premiere set on February 2, but the newest onscreen couple is certainly drumming up buzz with their undeniable chemistry.
In a moment that felt straight out of a winter fairy tale, a segment on the show that required the two to hold hands and win a game by increasing each other’s heart rate saw Wu Lei asking a line of questions with an air of sincerity. He started, “Do you miss it (filming the drama)?” A warm smile played on Zhao Jinmai’s lips as she responded, “I miss those snowy days, and everyone during those days.” In turn, Wu Lei described his co-star as “beautiful, kind, acts well, generous, easy to get along with, and so much more” in response to her question to say 5 things about her.
The atmosphere took a charming turn as Wu Lei, with a mischievous twinkle in his eyes, continued, “I wanted to ask, do you have a boyfriend?” The 24-year-old actor further said, “Can you tell that I want to pursue you?” The 21-year-old actress, blushing with a touch of shyness, countered, “It’s not very clear, maybe you should be more obvious.” Many were shocked with their bold statements as guests on the show exclaimed, “can he ask this?” As it turns out, they were simply reciting the same lines from their drama, giving a glimpse of what’s to come. Even if it tuned out to be fan service, the two certainly sent hearts aflutter with their sweet interactions.
Produced by Tencent and Jaywalk Studio, Amidst a Snowstorm of Love follows Lin Yiyang, a retired snooker genius, who meets nine-ball player Yin Guo on a snowy night. Yin Guo’s support reignites Lin’s passion for snooker, and together they make a successful comeback, contributing to the sport.
