If you’re suffering from Hu Ge withdrawal (like I do every day), here are some interesting snippets from iQiyi’s annual awards show. iQiyi is a popular streaming site in China (you can download a Google Chrome extension to play iQiyi videos outside of China). The awards show is a lot of good humor, nothing stuffy or overbearingly formal. As expected, Lang Ya Bang performed well, with Hu Ge, Jin Dong (Ling Chen in Lang Ya Bang), Wu Lei (Fei Liu in Lang Ya Bang), the director, and the drama overall won awards.
After Hu Ge gave his acceptance speech, little Wu Lei wrapped him in a cloak, similar to the scene from Episode 1. Throughout the night, Hu Ge was also teased about his bromance with Huo Jianhua (Wallace Huo).
Coincidentally (or not), a lot of the dramaland “It” boys were sitting next to each other during the show, including Hu Ge, Jin Dong, Wallace Huo, Chen Kun, Chang Chen, and Chen Weiting.
I think it’s safe to say that most of the entertainment circle is suffering from the same illness I have fallen under for the past decade aka Hu Ge fandom. Zhao Liying has said that she hopes her next costar is Hu Ge, because she looks forward to working with him. Hu Ge has proclaimed Jin Dong as his older brother, Wallace Huo as his lover, Wu Lei as his beloved protector, and Yan Ni (from a previous drama) as his goddess. And all this happened in one night…
