Chinese actors Ni Ni, 27, and Jing Boran, 26, have confirmed through their managers that they are dating.
“The couple got together over the Chinese New Year period (early to mid February),” the statement read. “They hope to receive everyone’s blessings, and they wish to keep a low profile as they begin dating.”
The pair reportedly met while starring in 2013 romantic comedy Up in the Wind, after which they became good friends.
Ni Ni is in Beijing working on two movies, Biography of Wukong and 28-Year-Old Minor. She was seen on March 3 returning after filming to a luxury condominium building, where Boran lives.
The next afternoon, Boran emerged wearing a cap and with his head bowed, and he returned after midnight. Ni Ni was again seen entering the building, and the entire process was repeated on March 5.
Ni Ni broke up with Chinese actor Feng Shaofeng (or William Feng), 37, last May, after which he swiftly moved on to date Jelly Lin (or Lin Yun), 18, the star in Stephen Chow’s latest movie, The Mermaid.
