On Nov 7, social media was buzzing with news of the marriage between Chinese actress Guan Xiaotong and former member of K-pop band Exo, Lu Han.
The information was obtained from a source who claimed that her sister was “a publicity staff in an entertainment firm”. According to the source, the couple had secretly filed for a marriage certificate and they planned to publicly announce their marriage in January 2023.
After the topic appeared on Weibo’s “hot search”, Guan’s father told Chinese media the news is fake.
“If the two really wanted to get married, they would’ve told everyone already,” Guan Shaozeng said, adding that the couple would never hide such good news from the public.
Shaozeng also shut down rumours that he asked for 100 million yuan (RM66,000) as an engagement gift, explaining that his family is reasonable.
“We would never ask anyone for such a high dowry if our daughter got married. All those articles circulating online saying we did so are just rumours.” he reiterated.
This isn’t the first time Lu Han and Xiaotong are entangled in marriage rumours.
In February this year, the couple were said to have already purchased their marital home in Beijing. Although there were no official sources confirming the information, many fans congratulated them anyway.
Lu Han and Xiaotong officially announced their relationship in October 2017.
