This post is a few days late but the last celebrity dating news of 2014 arrived courtesy of C-ent and one of my soft spot fave C-actors. After a week of intense media scrutiny and totally contradictory weibo updates, C-actor Hu Ge confirmed right before the end of the year that he’s dating newbie C-actress Maggie Jiang. They met on the set of their upcoming modern sports C-drama Youth Soccer which filmed this past summer. That drama was the reason Hu Ge grew that smoking hot goatee. Recently they were spotted at an airport by the public and seen feeding each other morsels during a meal together.
Hu Ge’s response cycle went from not true to dated but broken up to finally coming clean that the recent drama costars were indeed a couple. His agency Tangren has come out in support of his going public with Maggie despite the public not feeling this relationship between an established star and a very new-face young actress whose only big role was as the second female lead in the movie So Young. I’m happy for Hu Ge to date whomever he wants but feel wistful at the end of an era now that both Liu Shi Shi and Hu Ge are publicly dating. My fave of the three Yuan Hong needs to find himself a special someone lest he’s all without buddies to hang out with.
I have no impression of Maggie Jiang whatsoever despite watching So Young. Lookswise she is a cross between Nam Sang Mi and Guo Zhen Ni, but she is very warm and sweet onscreen when she acts. Check out the preview for the C-drama that brought this couple together.
