Yao Chen and husband Lin Xiaoshu Vacation in Dalian

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.

  1. Very sweet :) Yao Chen was great in My Own Swordsman.

    That series does take some time getting used to—mainly because of all the different accents in there.

    I’m glad they kept it though and didn’t dub over it.

  2. Yup! He said filming it was like falling in love with her all over again. ^^ He seems soooo sweet and I’m very jealous.

    They were also in Wu Lin Wai Zhuan (My Own Swordsman), but his part was small in there.

    I want to check out that flight attendant series now.

  3. Don’t they have like a drama together? I saw it on Tudou or something… it’s called something like, “Living with a Flight Attendant.” Or something like that. I was wondering why the guy looked so familiar…

  4. haha. like the last picture. i heard dalian is a great place to visit. its a unique place. its quite different from the rest of dongbei. for ex: temperature.
