He has an amazing friendship with Mark Chao who is the lead man in Ten Miles Peach Blossom and they actually go on vacation along with Mark's wife Gao Yuan Yuan who is really pretty chill abtout their big bromance.  Sweet of GYY:

Apparently LGX is said to be extremely shy. Even Mark Chao and Feng Shaofeng have mentioned in interviews that he is really shy.  His co-star in Princess Agents, Zhao Liying also said that after shooting a certain kiss scene he ran away while covering his face. Fans have also pointed out that even when shooting certain scenes his ears would turn red.

LGX's been known to be like any other ordinary guy as fans often find him in local places such as the subway, street or even the normal grocery shop buying fruits and vegetables. He doesnt care much abt appearances and dresses simply in shorts and t-shirts most of the time unless he's got a public event:

LGX's childhood pic.  He turned out so tall, talented, handsome and successful:

He's pretty good handling little babies.  This pic was taken when he was in Myamar filming "Legend of Dance" a joint production between China and Myanmar for tourism and cultural exchange purposes:

He likes spicy food and apparently is a good cook:

This is the iQIYI's poster for LGX.  On this same date, LGX has a fanmeeting in Beijing (to some still Peking) too so fans think that it will just be a video or pictures of LGX or him and ZLY both endorsing iQIYI.  We'll just have wait and see:

Hi, just dropping by to say hello.  Are we going to posts his gossips  too or stick to professional stuff?  Do we have any spies that can read Chinese and know all the Weibo voodoo to get the latest on him? Too bad I am new to Asian entertainment stuff and am pretty much clueless.
