Mingpao stated, “The two wore black short-sleeve tops from the French fashion brand ‘Dior’ like couple items so anyone can tell that they are lovers. We wonder when Huang Zitao will officially publicize his romantic relationship with ‘rumored girlfriend’ Xu Yiyang.”

Huang Zitao and Xu Yiyang have been rumored to be dating since 2020. According to witnesses from people in Wangjiao, Hong Kong reported by Mingpao, the two did not hold hands but they were more affectionate than normal couples.
