This idol allegedly had an affair with Tony Leung, drawing attention.
On August 12, it is rumored that Tony Leung had an affair with Cheng Xiao, who is 36 years younger than him. The Taiwanese media also reported that Carina Lau, Tony Leung’s wife, confronted Cheng Xiao in person.
Cheng Xiao was a former idol working in Korea before she returned to China. She has a much-talked-about relationship with Wang Yibo.
Career highlights while working in Korea
Cheng Xiao was born in 1998 in Nanshan District, Shenzhen, Guangdong. She debuted in Korea in 2016 with Cosmic Girls as the center. She was the first Chinese member to hold such a position in a K-pop idol group.
In 2016 ISAC, the idol put on a miraculous performance in rhythmic gymnastics, garnering massive attention. The performance also brought her lucrative commercial deals. From 2016 to 2017, the idol was invited as guest star on more than 20 entertainment shows in Korea such as “Law of the Jungle” and “The Return Of Superman.”
Declining popularity after returning to China
In 2018, Cheng Xiao returned to China and pursued a more mature image. However, she could not create another breakthrough similar to the one she had in Korea. The 1998-born was falling behind other female stars of the same age.
Nonetheless, Yuehua still pushed Cheng Xiao for many collaborations with male stars in the entertainment industry. She has worked with Luo Yunxi, Xu Kai, and Fan Chengcheng, to name a few.
Unfortunately, Cheng Xiao could not make it big in the filming industry. As the actress was struggling to secure a spot in Cbiz, netizens hoped she could return to work as an idol to gain more edges and opportunities.
Dating rumors with Wang Yibo
Cheng Xiao was rumored to be in a relationship with Wang Yibo after fans spotted the two wearing couple items and exchanging intimate gestures onstage. An eyewitness stated that they saw Wang Yibo and Cheng Xiao at a golf course together but did not give any concrete evidence.
