Why so many sentimental posts all at once? I have no idea. Perhaps it was because Chinese Valentine’s day was just around the corner. I also feel a bit guilty that I rarely post anything on celeb’s personal lives (invasion of privacy), or their interviews (to lazy to translate). But the former reluctance isn’t necessary in this case, since these pics were from Yao Chen’s blog.
Yao Chen, achieved nationwide fame with “My Own Swordsman”, a satirical take on the wuxia genre, and cemented herself as a household name in China with “Lurk”. She most recently has a supporting role in the romantic comedy Sophie’s Revenge that should soon be making it’s way around the web (it’s already legally available on Sohu). After a busy first half of the year for her, she finally went on a small vacation with her husband of five years, Lin Xiaoshu, her classmate from Beijing Film Academy and showed that their love is as steady as ever.
Their acquaintance began rockily, with Xiaoshu arguing that performance should be more improvisational and Yao Chen advocating hard work and careful study. After a performance of Macbeth Lin Xiaoshu began to notice her, especially after Yao Chen became the top student at Beijing Film Academy. Once Lin Xiaoshu went to compete in a Wushu competition, and she said she would marry him if he won, which to her surprise she did. They ended up getting married as soon as they graduated.
Pictures from their well-deserved vacation in Dalian that she posted on her blog. Five years and still going strong!
More pictures of them together: Yao Chen is a lucky lucky woman.
