With all the naysayers around the relationship of aging C-rocker Wang Feng and his much more famous girlfriend China’s top actress Zhang Zi Yi, it’s no wonder he decided to go big or go home when the time came to propose to his lady love. Love her or hate her, Zhang Zi Yi indisputably is the first Chinese actress to cross over to Hollywood and do so with considerable success not just playing characters that fit Western stereotypes of Asian women. Her love life has been intensely scrutinized by the C-media for years and her choice to date locally known rocker Wang Feng over a year ago had led to the usual clucking of “she’s too good for him!”
The couple has ignored the derisive bets on when they would break up and this weekend took their romance a step further and got engaged. Congrats to the happy couple! Wang Feng planned a lavish, star-studded 36th birthday party for Zhang Zi Yi and during the cake cutting, he flew in a 9.15 carat diamond engagement ring via a white drone and then got down on one knee to propose. Who wouldn’t be swept away with such a romantic grand gesture and Zhang Zi Yi reportedly happily cried out “I do!” when he asked if she would marry him. Fireworks then exploded outside the venue over the river to cap the moment. With Zi Yi engaged, and Gao Yuan Yuan married, poor Fan Bing Bing is going to have triple the public fixation on her love life now.
