Guan Xiaotong Celebrates Luhan's Birthday for Seven Consecutive Years

Today, on April 20th, the ever-youthful Luhan celebrates his 34th birthday, and his longtime girlfriend, 26-year-old actress Guan Xiaotong, wasted no time in extending her heartfelt wishes. At the stroke of midnight, she greeted him with a warm “Happy Birthday @M鹿M.” Luhan responded from Thailand, “Got it, got it, another year older.” This marks the seventh consecutive year that she has greeted him on his special day.

Luhan and Guan Xiaotong Being the Sweetest Couple

Netizens deduce that each of Guan Xiaotong’s greetings seemingly carry its own significance. For instance, on their second year together, she posted at 00:17, signifying the year they got together in 2017. Similarly, on their third year, she greeted him at 00:30, symbolizing Luhan turning 30. Another year it was 23:31 because she was 23 years old at the time the singer-actor turned 31. Apparently, him responding at 00:19 could’ve been because they become a couple when she was nineteen years old.

From Reel to Real: Their Romance Amidst Public Scrutiny

Reflecting on their journey, Luhan and Guan Xiaotong have overcome numerous challenges to become a power couple in the entertainment industry. Luhan, known for his tenure with the popular K-pop group EXO, transitioned to become one of China’s top traffic stars back then. However, his decision to openly pursue a relationship with Guan Xiaotong was met with backlash, highlighting the challenges idols face when it comes to dating. The actress, who grew up in the public eye as a child star and was seven years younger than him, also faced criticism.

Their love story began on the set of the sports drama “Sweet Combat,” where reel chemistry blossomed into a real-life romance. No one thought they would last long, but Luhan and Guan Xiaotong have stood by each other’s side, weathering the storms of public scrutiny and maintaining their love throughout the years. Nowadays, they have many supporters and even a couple name, 一鹿彤行 (Yi Lu Tong Xing), which is meant to sound like the widely used Chinese phrase “Traveling Together Every Step of the Way.”
