Chinese rock singer-songwriter Wang Feng has once again made the headlines for publically confessing his love to Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi at a concert in Shanghai last Saturday; Ziyi was also sighted seating amongst the audience at his concert.
According to Chinese media reports, the 42-year-old singer shocked his fans when he decided to read a 900 word speech to Ziyi prior to the concert show.
In his eight-minute long confession, he shared about being ignorant that a simple love could bring a huge burden to a woman and shouted across the concert hall, “I will make you (referring to Zhang Ziyi) the happiest woman in the world!”
While Ziyi has yet to make an official statement about the courtship, Wang Feng revealed on Saturday, “I hope that one day, our love will no longer be seen as shameful.”
His high-profile love declaration methods were however heavily criticised by netizens for being “fake” and “second-hand”; some even predicted that the couple will not last long.
Netizens also exposed the singer for singing similar songs such as, “I love you so” and “When I miss you” to his former model girlfriend, Ge Hui Jie and second wife, Kang Zuo Ru.
