Dylan Wang and Chen Fei Yu Accept Outstanding Actor of the Year Awards at the 2022 Weibo Internet and Video Summit

Okay, those of you who are Ever Night fans this may just set your panties on fire. It kinda did for me and I didn’t even watch it haha. Goes to show both male leads Chen Fei Yu (Arthur Chen) and Dylan Wang are just on fire this year in terms of popularity and leveling up. Ah Se (nickname for Chen Fei Yu as his dad called him that which is the Chinese pronunciation for Arthur) debuted in a big way as the male lead of fantasy period drama Ever Night but did not return for season 2 which Dylan Wang took over as the male lead playing the same character. Both guys took home Outstanding Actor of the Year awards together on stage at last night’s Weibo 2022 Internet and Video Summit and looked so fiiiiiiiine onstage. I always felt Dylan was super tall but seeing him next to Ah Se who is even taller and I was like whut tha wut and realized Ah Se needs better posture onscreen when he’s acting haha! I’m such a mom and these two young men are adorable!
