The Chinese heartthrob revealed last Saturday, July 20, that if he did not become an actor, he would pursue a career as a flight attendant. It was his course in college, after all. He came in wearing a printed Tee that reads Wo Xihuan Manila which host Eva Marie Poon translated to as “I love you Manila”.
The actor could barely get a word out because of the deafening screams of his fans at the Araneta Coliseum. Poon even teased the fans that all Dylan had to do was to move his eyes and they would scream. At one point, Dylan shushed them so he could hear the question from Poon.
Dylan is one of the newest endorsers of local clothing company Bench. He rose to fame when he took on the role of Dao Ming Si in the rebooted Chinese version of “Meteor Garden”. The drama is based on the Japanese Shoujo manga “Hana Yori Dango” which translates to “Boys over Flowers”.
The popular drama has several versions to date including Korean, Taiwanese and Japanese. Consequently, Dylan is the third endorser of the brand who played Dao Ming Si. Bench originally brought Jerry Yan in 2003 and “Dao shall wear Bench” was its memorable tagline.
It was followed by Korean superstar Lee Min-ho who played Gu Jun-pyo in “Boys over Flowers” in 2016.
