Rumour has it that Xu Kai is now in a relationship, but it is not with the person you expected.

As reported on Oriental Daily, mainland paparazzi recently released a video showing the “Story of Yanxi Palace” actor at the Shenzhen HSR station as he picked up a long-haired mystery girl.

The girl was then seen giving him a tight hug, before the two walked back together while holding hands.

Many who saw the video speculated that the said girl is a new actress named Zhao Qing, who is currently signed to Huanyu Entertainment, owned by producer Yu Zheng.

Prior to the new romance rumour, Xu has been romantically linked to actress and onscreen partner Bai Lu, a fact that some netizens didn’t forget to share on Yu Zheng’s Weibo post. However, the producer responded by saying, “This is fake.”

Both Xu and Zhao Qing have yet to respond.
