Chinese actor Chen Xiao and Taiwanese actress Michelle Chen have been taking over headlines recently, with news of their upcoming weddings in July. As Michelle has always wanted a “summer wedding”, the couple has reportedly cleared their schedules, and will be celebrating their union in two countries, with their ceremony to be held in Beijing, China on July 19, and their banquet in Taipei, Taiwan three days later.
The reel-to-real-life couple met while filming the drama, The Romance of the Condor Heroes in 2014. After dating for seven months, Chen Xiao popped the question in Paris at the end of 2015. During Chinese New Year this year, the couple travelled to meet their respective in-laws.
On Wednesday, Chen Xiao took to his Weibo to post an ambiguous message of “Till death do us part”, accompanied by two pictures of him, with many fans taking his message as a confession to his soon-to-be wife.
Netizens soon flooded the post with their blessings for the happy couple, with comments like, “[I] wish for Yang Guo and Xiao Long Nv [the characters played by Chen Xiao and Michelle Chen in The Romance of the Condor Heroes] to never be apart,” as well as, “Congratulations on your wedding! [Wishing you a] long life together!”
