Among their clips, the rumored couple especially went topic on Weibo when Tao vocally expressed his jealousness when someone confessed his love to Yiyang.

While riding an outdoor vehicle, fans were able to greet the Chinese celebrities and just then, one male fan shouted, “Xu Yiyang, I love you!”

Perplexed, Tao immediately reacted and confirmed it to Yiyang, saying:

“He said ‘I love you’?”

Yiyang only laughed, but then Tao continued murmuring something and said in disbelief:

“Someone loves you. (He said) Xu Yiyang, I love you! (mimicking the male fan).”

Meanwhile, their connection might have started when they were still both artists under SM Entertainment.
